fnatic have won the ESL ESEA Pro League Season 1 Finals and $100,000 with a 3-1 (14-16 de_cobblestone, 16-6 de_cache, 16-14 de_overpass, 19-15 de_dust2) win over Cloud9.

The grand final started on de_cobblestone, where Cloud9 got off to a flying start with quick bombsite B attacks that saw them grind up a 5-2 lead on the terrorist side of the map.

fnatic's defense tied the game at seven before Cloud9 won the final round. The North Americans also won the defensive pistol round, and the following rounds, to go up 11-7.

Next rounds saw fnatic pick one, Mike "shroud" Grzesiek win a two-on-two for C9, and Tyler "Skadoodle" Latham score three AWP kills in B to give them a commanding lead.

shroud then won a one-on-two with time running out for Jesper "JW" Wecksell, giving his team game point, as fnatic finally got the timeout eBot issues prevented them from having.


shroud put up 32 frags en route to a win on de_cobblestone 

The Swedes mounted a comeback at the end - getting as close as 14-15 - but in the final round shroud and Jordan "n0thing" Gilbert got key entry kills in B, giving Cloud9 the first map.

A seemingly new fnatic showed up on de_cache. Though Ryan "freakazoid" Abadir's four kills won a save round for C9 to make it 1-2, it was just about the last highlight for them.

Combined with Cloud9 making mistakes, fnatic had clearly done their homework on their finals opponent as they had an answer to everything the North Americans did, winning 12-3 first half.

shroud's two Tec9 kills got his team three rounds to bring it to 6-12, but fnatic then quickly put a stop to the potential comeback, closing the map out 16-6 to even the series.

To start de_overpass the first nine rounds were traded neck and neck with C9 coming out ahead 5-4 on the defensive side before they were able to make some ground.


olofmeister was fnatic's best player in one-sided de_cache win 

With Freddy "KRIMZ" Johansson struggling individually, fnatic found themselves trailing 5-8 and ultimately lost the opening half with a score of 6-9, still in it but brutal given the lost rounds.

In a fashion similar to the first map, Cloud9 found themselves up 13-7 as terrorists after winning the pistol round, and fnatic's early third round FAMAS force buy attempt.

Despite Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer also not putting up numbers, Robin "flusha" Rönnquist jumped in and put in more than thirty frags in total to complete a neat comeback on the map, winning 16-14.

fnatic continued their winning ways, taking the counter-terrorist pistol round on de_dust2. However, Cloud9 bought second round, and shroud's four Scout kills tied the game.

The underdogs went to string together seven rounds before olofmeister's monster flank around the map, following fnatic's timeout, got them a round win to make it 2-7.


flusha helped fnatic win de_overpass from a 7-13 deficit with 30 kills 

After making 9-2, fnatic figured out ways to stop Cloud9, ending the half with a respectable 5-10 score, after changing to the easier side of the map, terrorists.

Two entry kills from Sean "seang@res" Gares in B, and two more from n0thing, stopped fnatic in their tracks with no kills on the pistol round, and the latter's four kill middle push made it 12-5.

Next seven rounds were essentially traded - with fnatic winning four to Cloud9's three - which put the latter up 15-9, with a chance to tie the series at two maps each.

Unfortunately for fans of the game that last round win never materialized, as fnatic abused C9's B defense and won a close round in A despite freakazoid's triple  to force overtime.

Once regulation ended, Cloud9 could not find a way to stop fnatic. The Swedes won nine straight rounds, from 9-15 to 19-15, to clinch the map, and with it, the series 3-1.

Fnatic so much winnings, take a sit NiP
2015-07-05 23:05
GeT_RiGhT & f0rest won over 10x more events than fnatic boys & career money winnings than any Fnatic one year only on top guys ^_^
2015-07-05 23:12
and now they are old and done... it's not about what you won it's about the next one
2015-07-05 23:08
"old and done" haha u fucking retard

so if u win 5 majors in a row and loses the next one youre trash? logic..
2015-07-05 23:32
but they didnt win 5 majors in a row, they won 1
2015-07-05 23:35
Do u know what an example is?

All valve sponsored events are majors, but majors are not only valve sponsored events.
2015-07-05 23:42
Facepalm.
2015-07-05 23:51
all time winnings f0rest is so much ahead it's not even fair, as far as CS GO is concerned fnatic is the best
2015-07-05 23:09
is it f0rest's fault that fnatic guys needed 7 years to get top?
2015-07-05 23:11
what do you mean? f0rest carried fnatic and won the most on fnatic :D
2015-07-05 23:11
No, but f0rest is 27 and most of Fnatic is under 23. They have over 5-7 years to prove themselves still, and they already have 2 titles. f0rest has 12 Major titles. He started 10 years ago. Fnatic already has 2, they started <2 years ago. At the same rate they should get just as many placings are f0rest does. Stop living in the past.
2015-07-05 23:15
"In past", so we should forgot what Messi & C.Ronaldo achieved two years ago since its "past" ? :DDDDDDDDDDD
2015-07-05 23:23
Messi and Ronaldo are still good. f0rest is trash. When people start fading they are forgotten, 2 years after they retire I'm sure no one will care. Just like how Ex6TenZ dominated the CSS scene, do you hear anyone talk about how Ex6TenZ is the best player anymore?
2015-07-05 23:28
"Trash". That's why he's still playing at top level cs? Get some common sense you dummy.
2015-07-05 23:28
He's not that great anymore, he wore off last year. People have a peak and f0rest reached his a long time ago. I wouldn't be surprised if he retired next year.
2015-07-05 23:32
why retire if you can get living from playing video games for ever? f0rest is there even after 15 years, playing vs 18 kids ^_^
2015-07-05 23:43
But as the new generation comes he won't be able to keep up, he's already showing signs of wear.
2015-07-06 01:20
fuck you are stupid, clearly you dont watch sports at all and judging by retarded comments in your other threads you struggle to rub 2 IQ together. people dont forget about great players of any sport, just use some common sense and open your eyes mate. you can pick any sport, ask someone who watches the sport who the greatest of all time is and often it will be someone who hasnt played in years
2015-07-06 04:41
He's making an argument that a player is good because they have achieved more in the past than a newer generation player. I'm countering that by saying you can't make that argument to support why he's currently better than that person Speaking of which do you remember Threat? He held a Guinness World Record for most kills in 12 hours, bet you didn't know that?
2015-07-06 17:50
You mean to say everyone forgot Maradona or Pele, right?
2015-07-06 10:04
you think jw flusha olofm etc started playing 2 years ago? rofl, they probably played even in 2008. only difference is f0rest was pro all the time while the fnatic guys wasnt
2015-07-05 23:28
They started in 2012 and nothing before that. Just like how no one takes into account f0rest achievements before 2005.
2015-07-05 23:31
f0rest got PRO in one year after starting CS and was top1 player for 7 years, it tooks Fnatic players 7 years even to get level of PRO
2015-07-05 23:32
That's not true, they started around 2011/2012. If you honestly think it took 7 years that means they were playing Tier 1 CS since they were 13-14
2015-07-05 23:33
are u stupid or just retard? Every fnatic player has said that they have been playing CS longer than 7 years.. and only last couple of years they were able to get top..

How many viewers we had without valve support? 250k?!
2015-07-05 23:10
Probably 150-200k across various channels
2015-07-05 23:11
main channel had like 250-300k and pov_1 around 60k, don't know about the other pov stream, no need for me to watch ... I can`t speak Swedish.
2015-07-05 23:21
main channel around 195k viewers and with the channels in other languages i think the total was around 220k viewers.
2015-07-05 23:29
no , i was checking the streams viewers , it had something like 270k +

I think we can't take pov stream too serious, cuz I watched both in some matches
2015-07-05 23:33
Everyone thinks fnatic are so good, while props to them for doing well, but it was more of C9 choking than fnatic winning.
2015-07-05 23:10
On overpass fnatic threw away a stupid amount of rounds due to stupid mistakes. And on d2 they lost the second round again due to stupid mistakes, which nearly cost them the map,.
2015-07-06 02:26
13-8 and 15-9 is more choking than fnatic not playing up to par.

Ez game? Nt euros we lost this one but hey it was a good watch and also nice to see we can compete with top euro teams congrats to both fnc and c9
2015-07-05 23:11
I agree, C9 has been really impressive. Hope to see some others big matches on next major !

yup, don't listen to the ignorant pricks.. c9 rly showed us that they can compete with eu best! But overall i think c9 is the only one who can compete with eu, clg won BO1 and that's all. nV and NiP r not at their top form so i actually was pretty sure c9 is goin to beat nV and yeah.. wp by c9 and hope to see them grow up in the future!

2015-07-05 23:11
fnatic the best team at now.
2015-07-05 23:11
fnatic SO STRONG. And as opposed to NiP, they do these things facing the best. Final should have been against NV for the real show, but whatever. C9 was the better team this tournament.
2015-07-05 23:12
Envy have never won a LAN game vs fnatic (except when fnatic forfeited)
2015-07-05 23:25
Well, they have come closer than C9 (had previously). I was just saying that because facing TSM, VP and then NV in the final to win the tournament would have sounded even better.

2015-07-05 23:46
yes! thank you!
2015-07-05 23:47
So glad NA lost, the day NA wins 1 tournament they will think they are gods gift to CSGO and #1, fnatic still strong rest wrong <3
2015-07-05 23:13
+1 actually love c9 but the americans here are just .... no comment
2015-07-06 00:12
FNATIC didnt deserve this shit. Just look to olof interview... He is almost givin c9 the trophy. Worst game I've seen from swede bitchas. Conservely, amazing job c9. Became a fan.
2015-07-05 23:13
"didn't deserve it" =won= logic?
2015-07-06 02:46
Congrats to both C9 and Fnatic, This was a huge milestone for NA CS!
2015-07-05 23:13
clown9 had a lucky tournament thats all. Well played Fnatic!
2015-07-05 23:13
Lucky tournament, pushing fnatic to the limit in 3/4 maps
2015-07-05 23:15
i still think fnatic would won cobblestone if they had their timeout. this team wins %100 rounds after timeout. cache was a rape. d2 was close tho.
2015-07-05 23:17
I think c9 would've won d2 if they won that 3v2 retake at 15-11 I think c9 would've won overpass if they didn't lose the 3v2 postplant on B at 13-7 See, I can make "Should" statements too :D
2015-07-05 23:18
Those were c9's faults. the pause which didn't came wasn't fnatic's fault.
2015-07-05 23:21
+1
2015-07-05 23:22
or maybe fnatic takes the timeout early and c9 reads it well and c9 wins cobble 16-9. You can't know.
2015-07-05 23:32
fnatic won the %100 rounds after their timeouts so it's very likely they would won again. they managed to do that in overpass and d2 as well.
2015-07-05 23:34
And if the pause thing happened to c9? Nobody would give a fuck, everyone would be like: Shut up NA you just suck. Suck it up and stop making excuses. It could've happened to any team, and it happened to fnatic, fortunately or unfortunately, call it whatever you want.
2015-07-05 23:37
yeah it's because c9 is nothing comparing to 2major champions.
2015-07-05 23:39
they got one map.. because fnatic couldn't take a timeout. Hahahahahaha! NA so proud.
2015-07-05 23:18
Lmao, you're countries best player is fox, and hes a tier 25 awpers XD

"C9 win a tournament???" 16-14 6-16 ok not best from c9 14-16 15-19 i don't see the funny in my statement, i just see a team that is getting to the top soon, and dont come and say that fnatic won "ez" if you do that you are just showing everybody that you are a dumbass !!

2015-07-05 23:48
C9 would of won overpass if Fnatic wouldn't have been ghosting. Gg none the less.
2015-07-05 23:36
Fnatic would have won cobblestone if admins would let them pause.
2015-07-05 23:25
Cheating and "a pause" aren't the same.
2015-07-05 23:38
Very good mr murica very good.

shroud 100 bomb tho. i think pronax would be madfragger like olofm as well cause he's always the one who pushes to get info and gets entry kills then pulls back. he played all tournament like this and look at his stats. 72kills to seang@res's 52kills. amazing this is like olofm's getting 140kills to shroud's 100.
2015-07-05 23:54

2015-07-05 23:54
Can't wait to see how Renegades and C9 stack up against the euros in the next major! Or even better Renegades vs. Cloud9 :o

Congratz to both Fnatic and Cloud9 !

-21 great entry fragger. 1 round with 4hs on a saved ak doesnt make him a good player.

2015-07-05 23:59
Sean Gares stepped it up in his calling but seriously, barely more than 50 kills over FOUR maps ? Including 2 thirty rounds map and one that went to overtime. Needs to improve his raw skill more now, to match up his calling and his team will improve even further.
2015-07-06 00:05

Well done by fnatic, they proved why they're still the best in the world. Impressed by c9 though, there are a ton of idiots on either side of the coin but c9 showed they can compete with the best in EU. Fnatic just knows how to close tight games and it showed here. Look forward to seeing c9 at the next major, hope they keep it up.
2015-07-06 01:06

If it weren't for the annoying NA fans I'd love to see c9 do good. But I can't imagine the shit storm when NA finally wins an event..
2015-07-06 02:28
Yep.. you are quite right.
2015-07-06 03:00
Who's annoying? let me see a post. Do you not think I can reply with 10 comments from EU fans for every annoying NA fan? It's just natural to hate US, we're cool, let it out.
2015-07-06 04:11
shroud NA hope for sure, wp by c9 btw
2015-07-06 03:32
to me the difference was the gap in team experience, and for cloud 9 it should make a huge difference having such a good showing some 3 months into your new team. wp Fnatic, if you came out and showed some real class in the post game interview I could actually be a partial fan now, you still only lack for class. Additionally I would like to say both krimz's chain AND krimz's chain tattoo are comedy gold. Wat a look.
2015-07-06 04:02
C9's hand shaked on the dust2 definition, such a shame. Still was an excellent tournament by them.
2015-07-06 04:07
Anyone who really expected c9 to win it wasn't far off the mark, but before you shit talk, remember! they were playing arguably the #1 team in the world.. GG WP to both teams... made for an exciting match..
2015-07-06 04:28
i hope c9 actually learn from this instead of just fighting with eachother about it later. because they impressed just about everyone by holding a winning posistion on 3 maps and not being able to close it out
2015-07-06 04:44
i really hope they cut n0thing I feel like he is not worth having, they need another reliable rifler, he is so not reliable
2015-07-06 06:48

"The Swedes won nine straight rounds, from 9-15 to 19-15" i guess it's ten straight rounds but anyway its a total fail ... give them the 100 000 which is quite a lot of money right ?
