NTC win Golden Chance

August 4th, 2015 02:09

Não Tem Como (NTC) won the Golden Chance tournament after seeing off Rampage Killers 3-2 (14-16 on de_cobblestone, 16-12 on de_train, 16-14 on de_mirage, 12-16 on de_cache and 16-5 on de_inferno).

The X5 Arena, in São Paulo, hosted the offline finals of the GA Razer League, which were rebranded as Golden Chance to reflect the ambition of the project that Games Academy put together.

Four Brazilian teams duked it out for the chance to move to North America for a period of four months, with all expenses paid, to compete and practice against the region's top teams.

The grand final pitted NTC, formerly known as Dexterity, against Rampage Killers, with Lincoln "fnx" Lau's side taking home the victory in a hard-fought game that went back and forth and was decided only on the fifth map.

Golden ChanceBest of 5

Contacted by HLTV.org, Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo, one of the mentors of the Golden Chance project, stated that NTC will stay in North America until the end of the year and will play under the name Games Academy. 

It is possible that the players sign for another organisation at the end of the season, when the Golden Chance will be relaunched to give another team the chance to improve by playing in North America.

I think no.. He cried because when he was on Kabum.TD and after kabum, he was so much criticized and he is now giving back on top. I guess that's it fnx is back!

whats going on is that this is a 1.6 players that struggle alot during their whole carrer, the brothers hen and lucas that played together in every single team, and for them to become one of the best players in BR is huge, TACO who is from the north side of the country being far away from every lan competition spending alot of money just to pratice and compete with his teamates, most of the time is more expensive to travel to camps than the first prize itself, showtime is a upcoming talent and i dont know much about him, FNX being top 10 rifler in the world back in 1.6 from now on that he has to work hard to be at the same level as young players in BR, also being a guy who played many international lan event crying once again at a local lan event, its pretty amazing sry for bad english

He was saying that just who follow him and his career knows how he fighted...(can't continue to talk due his emotional). Just to remember he went very criticized due his lack of commitment when he were in KaBuM(fallen's and fer's team), and since then he changed himself..

2015-08-04 03:52
comparing the championships and the history of fer not even get closer to fnx awards, he was a legend in cs 1.6.

History doesn't make results, at least this is what I think when the CS:GO results are on the table.
2015-08-04 04:34
yes fer is better in cs go but fnx have so much history in cs 1.6 with MiBR and still playing.
2015-08-04 04:51
Markeloff have so much history in cs 1.6 and still playing, is he the best Ukrainian player in CS:GO because of that ? Anyway, best of luck to Fnx and co. Hope they make it to a big org.

If fnx continue focusing on CS:GO, i'm sorry but he will become the best player br.. Fer is better than fnx now, but fnx can improve and leave fer behind
2015-08-04 18:13
I know fer, he is a great player, but in his last national event he struggled against Dexterity. fnx dominated all 5 games against rK.

FNX the best, NTC

Brazil 1kuNg 
Lineup: hen1, SHOOWTiME, TACO, Lucas and FNX (pic left to right) They are almost good as keyd. hen1, Lucas and fnx were in the KaBuM lineup, they have the skill but they lack of teamplay, communication and tactics, that's why move to america to practice against proper teams will be awesome for them.

I know, but calling FalleN the father of br cs is too much. There are many great players and orgs before fallen's age. Fallen today is the reason why the CSGO in brazil is getting huge, without him we should be baby steping at csgo, but dont exagerate. Our past before fallen was glorious.
2015-08-04 18:31
Congratulations. All of them deserved this, especially brothers and fnx. Good luck!
