flusha: "Knew we'd get the last round"

Here's the winning interview from ESL One Katowice with Robin "flusha" Rönnquist.

fnatic became the first team to repeat a major victory after denying a comeback from NiP, who got all the way up to 13 rounds despite being down 4-14 on the last map, Inferno.

Here's the winning interview with Robin "flusha" Rönnquist about the record-breaking grand final, fnatic's thought process during the last rounds of Inferno and how the team felt about the maps.

With this, we're nearly closing out HLTV.org's ESL One Katowice coverage, we only have photos left to upload to our day three gallery.

Watch last year's Katowice major. :D Virtus.Pro won, yet people were yelling for NiP.
2015-03-15 19:09
NiP only won one major, but they are very consistent in terms of performance despite lineup changes
2015-03-15 19:16
how is that relevant to that comment?

What? He looks horrible without his beard. Grow it back or no respect!
2015-03-15 19:17
with beard without beard...still terrible
2015-03-15 19:21
He looks better without the beard. It's not full enough for him to really grow it out, patchy facial hair is terrible. If he lost weight it'd be a lot more apparent(not putting down his weight I'm just saying).

Nope. Patchy facial hair > No hair. It's that simple :D
2015-03-15 19:26
No. Just...fucking no. You either have a full beard or you don't. It makes you look like you're just hitting puberty when you have patchy facial hair.

I meant for Flusha :D Not in general. He looks ridiculous without it.
2015-03-15 21:02
Oh. Eh that part's opinion I guess. I just detest thin beards...but that's because mine's manly as fuck.
2015-03-15 21:24
So you call dark skinned people - just hit puberty?
2015-03-15 21:41
That doesn't even make sense.
2015-03-16 03:02
no way. unless you can grow a thick beard patchy beards look ugly and tryhard as fuck

>fnatic would lose if they played 3v5 Damn, you should be on the analysis desk
2015-03-15 19:10
olof and krimz saved fnatic..that´s all
2015-03-15 19:43
so - flusha, pronax, JW + 3 randoms = win ?
2015-03-15 20:47

2015-03-15 19:14
No shit sherlock , nip would get rekt too without gtr and allu
2015-03-15 20:12
without friberg, xizt and f0rest as well ;)
2015-03-15 20:48
Without any of them in general
2015-03-15 20:49
thats what i meant.. cause that sounded stupid a bit "nip would get rekt too without gtr and allu"
2015-03-15 20:55
I know , thats why I said that because this guy said fnatic wouldn't lose without krimz and oloff
2015-03-15 20:56

Still far far away from what we used to see before the cheating scandal. He literally stopped overlooking walls & smokes. And no more flicks hs from one point to another, robotic moves are gone. His stats are falling down a bit, but it feels good that he stopped.
2015-03-15 19:25
Yes, I am still convinced he cheated throughout most of 2014. His stats were consistently among the best and he won most of his clutches, had insane flanks and game sense as well as smoke plays. All of that stopped immediately at one point together with his locks and that is no coincidence in my mind. He is still one of the best players in the world though and the likeliness of him cheating is so small that it's the same for all players at that point I guess.
2015-03-15 19:31
When your argument is "in my opinion he cheated", there's not much to argue against that. His performance has been constantly the same, and has performed when it has been needed, like he did before. Your judgement is just clouded, because you think he was the "kennyS" of fnatic before the accusations, which is far from the truth. He is consistent, that's about it.
2015-03-15 20:00
You must be blind not to see those 3 blatant aimlocks on Dust2 Mirage and Inferno. Those moves are not human and you know it. He cheated and there are proofs.
2015-03-15 20:10
Inferno? I've did the same 3 times last week on MM. The one on d2 is far from blatant too. The mirage one is fishy, i have to admit that. Still, can be coincidence. Those aren't proofs at all. Just some low tick gifs from a gotv demo.
2015-03-15 20:33
tbh the d2 was pretty fishy i think.. when he was on the a site and didnt even see the enemy and 1 tap'd "through" the box..
2015-03-15 20:53
I remember you, you were always keen on defending him. Well then, I thought I had made my argument pretty clear. Clutch win percentage and general peformance are facts. His rating this event was worse than in all the other majors. Less clutches won. Underperformed at the American events on a foreign client and at MLG. No "locking" anymore. Those are the facts I base my opinion on. What are your conclusions from these facts?
2015-03-15 20:13
Based on every single game I've seen him play before and after the accusations. His playstyle has been exactly the same, his fragging overall has been decent enough to be rated the 2nd best player for 2014. The way he has performed in the events post-hackusations just reflects on the fact that he's always been clean. Just because you need to justify your hate towards him doesn't mean he's hacking. After all he's still a human, and according to your logic kennyS would be a cheater along with f0rest. Considering they underperformed to their normal standards at this event. EDIT: And to ask one simple question, when do you think he stopped "cheating" then? Do you think he cheats now? Did you think he cheated @ DHW?
2015-03-15 20:27
I called him one of the best players without hacking and you think I personally want to hate against him? You also accused me of my arguments only being an opinion, after I bring up stats you talk about how, based on your observations of the games you have seen, his playstyle hasn't changed at all. K den. And then it's obvious that he has changed. He himself said he lifts his mouse often. doesn't happen too much now does it. I've seen him looking more lost and confused in clutches and elsewhere than I've ever seen him before. His body language is telling as well. Looked very pressured at most recent events, this time around was the first time I saw him smiling during games. Edit: for your edit. Read my comments before you reply. I do not think he cheats now as I stated. I think he stopped cheating after he was ranked 2nd for 2014, which coaligns with the american foreign-client events and the new year.
2015-03-15 20:30
But he does the exact same mouselifts as he did back then. The fact that there are no people behind the walls everytime is because the times there were are from like 1000 games. Of course you'll disregard this fact and apply some bullshit logic into it like the one you just did that. There were around 1-3 actual dodgy clips out of the 400 or so matches. I have no idea how anyone could make a distinct judgement call based on those gifs. Apparently being a silver noob as I am, I just don't see what you see in them.
2015-03-15 20:37
I didn't call you a silver noob. Stop acting like there's this whole front against you. You may just have to live with the fact that some people will stay convinced that he was cheating at one point and there's no definite proof one way or the other. Call me "bullshit logic hater" and get called "blind fangay", what does it matter in the end? I have my opinion based on the facts availably and my observations and you have yours based on apparently the same. There is no satsifying conclusion to this, so why even go on? I would then now say that the locks were found in a small time frame, multiple in single tournaments, single matches, rounds even. I would waste my time babbling about the likeliness of those locks and how he swiped back and forth needlessly and you would counter that with how those swipes were not useless at all and how the instances are coincidences and neither of us would be wiser. I will say that I do not fully cancel out the possibility that he did not cheat. But since I likely will never know for sure I will stick with what I think is true rather than what you think.
2015-03-15 20:48
all I can say that it was 2014 and now it is 2015 it is not objective to compare it, because during the time game meta changed and performance of different players changed as well

2015-03-15 23:38
Despite my "hate" against Fnatic it feels like Flusha is the only one in the team that actually acknowledge NiP. Anyway.. NiP did an amazing job with the new roster and I expect them to win next major when they should feel more comfortable with Allu.
2015-03-15 20:04
i think they felt very comfortable with him. at least allu did thats for sure. most frags on cache and best nip player on inferno. if just f0rest wouldve stepped up his game like hes supposed to.
2015-03-15 20:31
ye at least he played 1 map good.. rest was subpar performances one after the other, worst nip rated player as an awp...
2015-03-15 21:31
flusha is so cute, i'm glad he and the others stopped cheating and finnaly proved themselves :)
