EnVyUs win IEM Gamescom

EnVyUs win the first Intel Extreme Masters stop for CS:GO at Gamescom with a clean 3-0 sweep over TSM (de_cache 16-3, de_cbble 16-9, de_inferno 16-12).

Yesterday half of the teams exited the competition after losing all their lives, which were CLG, SK and mousesports.

The last day of competition kicked off with a Renegades-TSM match-up, which the Australians went into with only a single life left. The clear favourites sent Renegades out of the tournament following a one-sided de_dust2.

What followed was the expected final between EnVyUs and TSM, and as both teams had three lives left, it basically counted for a full best-of-five.

The first map, de_cache, was very one-sided, thanks to EnVyUs getting a 12-3 Terrorist side, and both the second pistol round and the first gunround as Counter-Terrorists.


EnVyUs take an international title in their debut

de_cbble looked to be very similar, EnVyUs got as much as 11 rounds on the offence, and it even seemed like they would get the second pistol as well, had it not been for René "⁠cajunb⁠" Borg's quad-kill in a 2-on-4. Rounds went back and forth though, which naturally worked better for the Frenchmen, who put TSM on a single life left.

The third map chosen by the members of the audience was a much-anticipated de_inferno, but yet again EnVyUs got a very strong first side 12-3 despite losing the initial pistol. The second pistol went the way of the fresh lineup, and TSM held on for several more rounds afterwards, but in the end EnVyUs closed it out at 16-12.

They screwed themselves up tbh since they chose TSM vs SK matchup. If they chose TSM vs Renegades, renegades would be out and then if they played vs SK next match and won they could have gained third place although TSM might still go for TSM vs Mout matchup and then SK would be third lol.

If mouz had chosen tsm vs rene, this fat ugly karrigan tard would have chosen envy vs mouz again. But mouz chose tsm vs sk because they teamed up and karritard was fucking mouz over all the time by letting them always play vs envy.

Haha told ya - EnVyUs would be stronger than ever! Now they're extremely balanced, they have no weak links. Happy achieved impressive results, even having several weak links (like GMX+Uzzziii @ DHW-2013 or Maniac+Uzzziii @ ESL Cologne 2014), he won a major with SmithZz, he just knows, how to achieve great results, and now finally he has this lineup. I don't see them defeating fnatic though, but they're solid top2 for now, I'm 100% sure about that. On the other hand, TSM were pretty damn low if you ask me. karrigan and device missed so many easy shots, device seems to recall, how to choke in important matches. Hopefully they find out, what makes them suck so hard, and fix it before the major. Btw, Happy didn't look happy, he "highfived" apEX with no enjoyment, what's wrong?
