fnatic: "It could've gone either way"

For the winning interview we picked fnatic's star AWPer Jesper "JW" Wecksell and coach Viktor "vuggo" Jendeby to take us through each of the grand final maps and Cloud9's surprising performance.

fnatic came out victorious in the grand final of ESL ESEA Pro League Season 1 Finals after four maps, three of which went to at least 30 rounds and de_cache ending up in a white-wash, 16-6 in fnatic's favor.

We got a hold of a couple fnatic members after the nail-biting best-of-five, coach Viktor "vuggo" Jendeby and Jesper "⁠JW⁠" Wecksell, who broke down the series for us from every way possible:

The team that didn't owe most of their rounds to pure luck won. Freakozoid clutched 4 or 5 times 1v1 againt fnatic, LOL. That was a laugh.

Didn't rely on luck? Like the 2v3 retake on Overpass when it was 13-8 and if they lost their economy would be in the toilet? Or the 2v3 hold on Dust 2 on match point when both of them were dinked? You act as if clutches and 2v2 situations are not part of the game.

So u think "Clown9" deserve to win and fnatic, who had almost all onlan titles in 2014-2015 just "pure luck". Hltv silver rank logic alway best logic =))

fnatic made a lot of mistakes so did cloud9. The difference is the mistakes C9 did were much bigger than fnatic's. The experience in finals showed today and unluckily for cloud9 they werent able to close out the last 2 maps.

Honestly wouldn't call it luck but I suppose that's an excuse that can be used for C9s performance.

Respect for Fnatic, they slowly earned their way to be my fav team lately after NiP. EnVyus couldn't do it, titan either. I wonder if kinguin can reach something impressive :)

2015-07-06 02:26
Nice interview, good that they gave credit where credit is deserved even tho i think that the NA teams will be back to disappointment at the next major. EU wont underestimate them again, some teams will play with alot of "anger" to make this event forgotten. EnvyUs/TSM will/should be in way better shape. VP/fnatic wont be worse. And u get teams like NiP, NaVi (& maybe mouz, dignitas, Titan) in the mix. I dont see NA having the same success at the major even tho the NA fans will likely think that this success might be a given in the future, which it isnt. But ofc, they might prove me wrong, doubt it tho. :D

I hope this is b8, NA has made great progress. This was not a disappointing result for NA at all. If any other EU team had played fnatic, they probably would have lose by more. Sure, cache was potato for cloud9, but all the other maps had great performances. The fact that Cloud9 wasn't even predicted to make the semis is amazing. C9 just needs to be able to close out, if they can do they they could have won. It seems their adrenaline caught up to them and they just didn't finish. NA isn't amazing yet, but they have shown to be a threat, no matter how small.

yea, im pretty impressed with them aswell. fnatic won the final because it's insane how could they keep their calm - probably the experience they have helped them a lot. and c9 just need some more lans to feel more comfortable in finals against teams like fnatic and such.

Yeah I think c9 played surprisingly fantastic. In the end the better team won but this was too close to call.

So sad it wasn't TSM vs Fnatic in the final! but Kuddos to C9 they really tried hard. GZ to Fnatic for yet another great performance (sure some mistakes but still great)
2015-07-06 12:39
fnatic's run with this roster should not be even possible in a such low margin game as cs. the skill cap between them and all other "pro" teams is just unheard of. now it looks like past year teams "come close" but if you can't even pull off bo3 wins now and then against them, the skill cap must be absolutely huge. winrate on past 150maps, prolly ~80% or something, just should not be possible. i mean in starcraft bonjwas(a player who dominates the scene for a long period of time) had winrates like (55%), and that was considered crushing the game.
