EnVyUs win StarSeries XII

March 29th, 2015 20:46

EnVyUs are beginning to brew up something of a winner's streak in offline events, taking first place at StarSeries XII finals over NiP after their victory last weekend in similar fashion at Gfinity Spring Masters I.

In a game which nearly mirrored the easily won upper bracket final yesterday, today's grand final was EnVyUs' time to make a statement about their dominanace in the CS:GO scene. EnVyUs cruised to a two map victory over NiP today, technically winning 3-0 due to the best-of-five nature of the grand final.

nV garner two events in a row 

With major winners fnatic absent from the past two weekends' offline events, the Frenchmen still faced a tough assortment of teams to defeat in order to walk away with the first place prize of $18,000.

On de_inferno, the Swedish-Finnish Ninjas managed to post up a respectable 9:6 scoreline after starting CT, but they were promptly annihilated by nV's dominant CT half in which the Frenchmen went up ten straight rounds to win the first map.

EnVyUs' leader Happy continues to dominate the server at offline events 

de_mirage was even less of a contest than the first map as nV streaked up a 13:2 CT side with great play from Vincent "Happy" Schopenhauer and Edouard "SmithZz" Dubourdeaux in particular, and then closed out the map with ease after winning T pistol.

The Ninjas ran into a French Counter-Strike Maginot Line versus nV's CT side 

After all is said and done, and the curtains come down here in Kiev at the CyberSport Arena, the final standings and prize money distribution are:

1. France EnVyUs - $18,000
2. Sweden NiP - $9,000
3. Denmark TSM - $5,000
4. France Titan - $3,000
5. Poland Virtus.pro - $1,500
6. Ukraine Na'Vi - $1,500

Gfinity 8/8 lost at final lol
2015-03-29 23:51
Also both of the second halves in this final.. (at least...)
2015-03-30 09:11
I know they lost all 8 pistol rounds vs EnVyUs at the Gfinity final, and they lost all 4 pistol rounds vs EnVyUs in the winners bracket final, but they did win the first pistol on inferno in the grand final. So they lost at least 12 pistol rounds in a row against EnVyUs...

2015-03-29 20:50
Well, disappointing final. I wonder what's keeping NiP from performing against nV. And I share Thoorin's opinion when he says that nV and fnatic should both run their season on their side and then meet at the grand final of the next major. Then if we get there I hope for either a Bo3 in OT on the three maps, or a Bo5 3-2 or 2-3 with the last map on OT. Would be the most glorious match in CS:GO's history if it ever went out that way.

2015-03-29 21:15
Yea Navi and flamie did really put up a good fight vs nV. So close to go 2-0 against them. Unfortunately they couldn't close out the game, and had nothing to offer on nuke.

Ukraine lancee 
yea, they just thought they had it in the bag after 8-0 lead and when envy started coming back navi just choked, especially seized getting caught in awkward positions and always giving away that a site on season. But anyway that's good cause the gap isn't that high like everyone is saying
2015-03-29 21:20
I cross my fingers for navi can reach a new level with flamie. We need more teams to compete with fnatic and nV. The more great counter strike the better. Too boring with the same teams dominating in the top. A lot of teams has the "potential" but if they reach it, very difficult indeed vs such strong opponents.
2015-03-29 21:25
Very disappointing to see NIP coming up that short. nV has an incredible strong start in 2015. Fnatic have sucked online. So it is very difficult to know who the best team is at the moment. But I am looking forward to find out.
2015-03-29 21:13
fnatic won over half a dozen of times versus envy only on lan, envy never beat them, so how could envy be anything else but #2?
2015-03-29 22:08
They beat them at DH Winter.

sorry stich but you wrote something very wrong again. "With major winners fnatic absent from the past two weekends' offline events, the Frenchmen still faced" wtf?! fnatic was playing this SLTV and they got eliminated in groups. what you wrote is missleading as fuck. not nice
2015-03-29 23:19
fnatic wasn't playing at the event. The groups were played online.
2015-03-30 00:07
lmao? both were SLTV so yeah, same event (different stage)
2015-03-30 00:12
? That's the same LEAGUE, sure. It doesn't change the facts that the groups were played ONLINE, which means that they weren't part of the event. Only the playoffs were played on LAN. So yes, stich's sentence "With major winners fnatic absent from the past two weekends' offline events, the Frenchmen still faced" is correct.
2015-03-30 00:16
yeah, correct but MISLEADING as fuck!
2015-03-30 00:41
I don't see how it's misleading. The expression "offline events" obviously doesn't include any online part, and fnatic only took part in the online part.
2015-03-30 00:53
should be written eliminated/got out/failed instead missing. the author suggest the same reason for missing like for GF which is not true.
2015-03-30 00:58
He just wrote "absent", he never specified the motive of their absence, specifying it for one wouldn't make much sense if he doesn't specify it for the other. Maybe stich's statement lacks some details, but it doesn't lack correctness. I think the real problem is that you think he's implying something, when he's just stating facts.
2015-03-30 01:08
he did not distinguish absention from GF and sltv. this is misleading. btw. check in dictionary what misleading means
2015-03-30 03:03
"he did not distinguish absention from GF and sltv." Exactly, but it's not misleading in any way. What does it mislead to in your opinion? "btw. check in dictionary what misleading means" Let's check together shall we? en.wiktionary.org/wiki/misleading#Adject.. "Deceptive or tending to mislead or create a false impression." Do you honestly believe that stich's statement was deceptive, tending to mislead or creating a false impression? And if so, what kind of false impression would it be? Just so that we agree, here is also the definition of "mislead": en.wiktionary.org/wiki/mislead#Verb
2015-03-30 03:30
fnatic was absent not because getting eliminated but from not being invited or refusing invitation like it was the case for GF.

Until guns like CZ tec9 and other crap shits where u can run without any penalty and give hs's for no money and no real skill this is what you are going to get. Until the game doesn't allow wall-banging , removing some stupid boxes the 6corners that you can get killed and having a chance to cover only 2 at a time this is what you are going to get. Until there is molotovs and the smokes stay the same this is what you are going to get. Do not for a second believe that Envyous are better. The majority of the game at the moment revolves on chaos and luck. There more pistol/eco rounds won from some teams then they have won gun rounds. This makes no sense.. This game is getting ridiculesly stupid. This isn't CoD.. Please remove these retardet weapons remove the fact that a kill earns you more money done with some guns then others.. a kill is a kill it shouldn't matter what gun is made wtih.... And for the love of god fix these maps... Fix the damn recoil fix the game already remove all these nonsense that you believe are good because they are not, not at competitive level. Yes NiP got outplayed today they were a shadow of their former self, yet you still see rounds upon rounds from all calibers of teams won because of overpowerdness of tec9/CZ, i mean these 2 are better then galil and famas why buy those guns when you can get a cheaper weapon which is way more powerful and accurate ... It doesn't make sense... Game is total joke atm...

You're pretty newscool aren't you? Have youe ever heard of such tournaments as CPL? Was the biggest CS event back in the days, as majors are now. They used double-elimination bracket format and team coming from the winners bracket always had 1 map advantage in finals. And guess what, there were teams who came from the lower bracket to win the whole thing and noone complained it's unfair. If you haven't lost a single game throughout the whole tournament having a one map advantage seems pretty fair to me.
