Na`Vi, fnatic round out FACEIT semis

Natus Vincere and fnatic have secured the last two places in the FACEIT League 2015 semi-finals after seeing off Team Kinguin and Ninjas in Pyjamas, respectively.

After beating Virtus.pro in a three-map thriller, Kinguin were looking to carry on their momentum and defeat the ESWC champions to book a place in the semi-finals of the Spanish tournament.

Once again, Mikail "Maikelele" Bill's side showed some great fighting spirit as they were able to level the series after losing the opening map.


Na`Vi had to go to a third map against Kinguin 

However, this time around Kinguin struggled to get their game together on the final map, which allowed Na`Vi to run out 2-1 victors, thanks in no small part to a fantastic performance from Denis "seized" Kostin.

The other group Lower Bracket final was an all-Swedish classic between NiP and fnatic. Such games always go down to the wire, and this one certainly disappointed no one.

de_train was Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer's playground, as the renowned pistoleer turned up the heat to power his team to a 16-14 victory thanks to an amazing 1.86 rating. On de_mirage, it was Aleksi "allu" Jalli's time to shine, but the Finnish talent could not prevent NiP from faltering once more in the final round, just as they were about to take the game to overtime.

Olofmeister is the best overall player in the history of CS:GO. Dedicated AWP'ers have teams playing around the and can't be compared and GTR was a beast when he had played much more than anyone else. When it's a fair game, heard to head, Olofmeister is the best of all time.

nice to have a look in your mind

"played much more than anyone else" And that's where you are wrong, GT didn't have more hours then the others, everyone thought NiP had so much more hours, but the fact was that they hadn't. Old VP with ANGEL etc, flusha and jw etc had actually more hours than all of the NiP players, and still have. But I agree, olof have probably had the highest peak in GO. And it will be fun to see how long it last :)

Nip ratings last 3 months get_right 1.10 f0rest 1.08 allu 1.04 xizt 1.04 friberg 0.97 its pretty obvious that they need to remove friberg
2015-07-18 00:13
That's both online and lan right? Because last time i looked GeT_RiGhT had 1.15 rating past 3 months on LAN, probably is 1.14 now after the loss against fnatic. EDIT: Yes it was, looked it up by myself.
2015-07-18 00:31
well if you look at it that way fribergs LAN stats are 0.95 i mean thats pretty sad if you ask me

Rain is a support player, Fox is completely useless.

It will only be possible for Na'vi if they do not allow slips like that against Kinguin on inferno. Otherwise TSM will make a short series out of it.
2015-07-18 00:21
Seized playing great this tournament, Olof won fnatic the series. Overall great Day of cs and good thing kinguin was there.
2015-07-18 00:24
another great showing by friberg and xizt, they stay consistant all year long, impressive
