Na`Vi send EnVyUs packing

Natus Vincere have booked a place in the ESL Pro League grand final following a 2-1 victory against EnVyUs (15-19 on de_inferno, 16-7 on de_overpass and 16-12 on de_cobblestone).

Na`Vi had come into the match high on motivation following a 2-0 thrashing of dignitas in their group's Consolidation Final, but certainly only a few people expected them to be able to pose such problems to the StarSeries XII champions.

The first map of the series was de_inferno, where a flying start from EnVyUs saw them take a nine-round lead at the break after playing on the CT side. Na`Vi then responded in similar fashion and brought the scoreline to 15-15, but the former LDLC team were unstoppable in overtime as they bagged four rounds without response to take the lead in the series.


Na`Vi through to ESL Pro League title decider 

de_overpass was the map that followed, and here Na`Vi were in complete control from the early stages as they quickly sealed a 16-7 victory, powered by their Russian duo, Egor "flamie" Vasilyev and Denis "seized" Kostin.

It all came down to de_cobblestone, which was a keenly-contested map from start to finish. In such cases, individual brilliance usually makes the difference, and this match was no exception, as a world-class display from Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács helped Na`Vi to beat EnVyUs and seal passage to the grand final.

Go home baguettes. If you are a blind fanboy and still wonder why I hate them: Maybe because they overabuse broken stuff? (CZ-75, Tec-9, SMGs) Maybe because Happy act like he is a superstar yet was unknown until last year? Maybe because all they do is cry on twitter? Maybe because someone suicided in shox's train and he didnt show any empathy?

Happy wasn't unknown until last year. He played for VeryGames in 2008, the most dominant team there was, and since a big part of the community is from CS:S, I think it is a wrong statement to make.
2015-04-12 18:08
exactly.
2015-04-12 18:13
Happy was in Verygames? I dont think he was dude. He certainly wasn't in any of their dominant lineups thats for sure.

He was. EMSTQD was his name back then.
2015-04-12 20:00
With krl was it? Any ideas what the full line up was? I thought Happy wasnt anywhere near the level of shox, NBK etc in source!

It wasn't VeryGames I am mistaken, it was Epsilon. RpK, EMSTQD, Ex6TenZ, shokkk, crZ. They won The eXperience 2008 as just one of their major achievements.
2015-04-12 20:05
Happy did play for a short while in VG though. Here is a pic of him playing for them at Dreamhack Winter 2009: img.verygames.net/team-verygames/gallery..

Nevermind found it - learn something new everyday :) Kévin "Ex6TenZ" Droolans Floran "crZ" Thoumelin Ludovic "Shokkk" Martin Vincent "EMSTQD" Cervoni Loïc "RegnaM" Peron Mickael "spl4sh" Nguyen Van (Substitute)
2015-04-12 20:05
Lol typical Brazillian, CZ and Tec 9 is in the meta why do you think the top two teams in the world use it? If a gun is overpowered why not use it, their pros they will do anything to win.
2015-04-12 18:20
Any kind of hate towards any team is ridiculous. And your arguments are making it even more ridiculous.

Let us not forget they gave nV the closest run two weeks ago in Kiev, as well. I think they have an answer to nVs play style, which adds another dynamic to the top teams.

Flamie looks a bit too overweight for an 18 yr old.
2015-04-12 16:46
might be some kind of disease, not his fault
2015-04-12 16:58
Yeah that disease is called "McDonalds"
2015-04-12 17:06
99% of all cases where people are fat is because of their diet, I find it amusing that you immediately say it's not his fault
2015-04-12 17:16
A carbohydrate addiction is the main cause for overweight. It doesn't really matter who's fault it is, it's very hard to deal with. ;)

Na'Vi couldnt have played them on a better day. shox and kio were basically absent, this game happens any other day and its the same result that's happened at the 5 previous LANs with nV dicking on them. Upsets happen and that is what sports all about.
