Na`Vi edge past CLG

Natus Vincere are through to the quarter-finals of ESL One Cologne after beating CLG 16-14 on de_cobblestone.

Starting off on the Terrorist side, CLG came out the gate looking scary and took the first three rounds with ease. The first gun round then went Na`Vi's way, but their inability to build on that win hurt their economy as they were forced to go on a double eco.
After finding themselves down 1-6, Na`Vi were able to lock down the B site and finally start to build up their bank. Still, CLG refused to let go and maintained a solid three-round lead at the end of the half.
The second half began with Tarik "tarik" Celik almost pulling off an incredible a 1-vs-3 clutch in the A site, only to be denied by Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács. Na`Vi followed it up with one eco round but then they were stunned as CLG won the round with nothing to work with except pistols.
Na`Vi then embarked on a fantastic run and won five rounds in a row to bring the scoreline to 13-10. Many believed that the game was about to come to a close, but CLG tightened up in defence and equalised the game on 13 rounds, forcing Na`Vi to call a timeout.

North American fans have been left with no teams to cheer on

The following round then also went to CLG, but that was as far as they went, as Na`Vi picked up three rounds in a row to seal a 16-14 win and book a spot in the quarter-finals with blood, sweat and tears.

ayy I've always underestimated jdm I guess...
2015-08-21 18:10
He has been stepping up a lot recently. Na'Vi did give him a lot of free frags though, and he didn't really "crush" guardian. Sure he won in duels 5:3, but he never entryfragged guardian. I think he actually only killed him once in awp vs awp battle which was the time he took down both zeus and guardian when zeus was boosting guardian
2015-08-21 18:12
yeah that's right. but the fact that he had 32 kills is nice anyway. Never thought that he would be capable to carry his team.

JDM was out of touch with CS for quite a while, when these same guys were playing under NetcodeGuides name he used to carry that team really hard and was almost equally good as Skadoodle with the AWP. Then the team was going to become full time pro-players and he didn't wanted to and made a step aside and Ptr arrived.

I wouldn't say he crushed Guardian but JDM played very good, I already knew he had potential but he just proved himself, congrats
2015-08-21 18:10
Guardian said otherwise though lol. Indeed jdm has the potential, and he finally proved it. :)

felt more like tarik, even though he's their best fragger, is loosing them more rounds with his careless movement
2015-08-21 19:22
Actually, watch FNS. FNS makes more mistakes than tarik by far--like in that 2v1, when he was wandering through the bombsite rather than hiding.
2015-08-21 19:27
Guardian 16-18 WHAT? Best awper?
2015-08-21 18:11
bad day
2015-08-21 18:11
JDM shut him down
2015-08-21 18:11
This is guardian's worst map . Reallly fucking horrible at it. Dont u remember esl one katowice, where in the last map ( cbble) of bo3 against NV , guardian was playing so fucking bad, edward had to awp :/ . They lost obviously, but guardian was not at all having a bad day coz in the previous map he destroyed nv ( dust2) single handedly. He is really bad at this map. Period.

I remember when ptr used to carry CLG. Now it's up to jdm. Good luck to the awpers in that line-up.

tarik is the best player in NA and have a poor team behind him. feel sad for him.

2015-08-21 18:15
not a terrible idea...Cutler would have to igl, ofc. Maybe something like this: reltuC (igl) Hik0 (lurk) nitr0 (entry--if he refuses to do his job right, make ELiGE do it then) tarik (second entry/carry) jdm (awp) The problem is, I think Hiko and tarik might play the same positions on a couple maps. And of course, a lineup like this wouldn't happen right now anyway.
2015-08-21 19:35
Thank you Zeus
2015-08-21 18:15
Missed another match of Na`Vi in this major, looks like they struggling a lot. Can anyone link me Zeus 1 vs 2 clutch please? Thank you.

Zeus pure intuition best clutch captain ever. Also props for JDM64 I got placed your sticker. Wow did not see JDM beating GuardiaN at his own game.

Not convincing win :(

North American fans have been left with no teams to cheer *for*
2015-08-21 19:47
either is acceptable. I'm guessing English isn't your first language
2015-08-22 06:00
can you say that you cheer on me ? well if that's correct then my bad, also English is my second language, how many languages do you know ?
2015-08-22 10:47
I can say "I'll show up to the homecoming game and cheer you on", or more parallel to your construction, "Will you show up to the homecoming game and cheer me on?". Stylistically, the sentence ends in a preposition--a formerly controversial construction. "At one time, schoolchildren were taught that a sentence should never end with a preposition. However, this is a philosophy actually associated with Latin grammar. While many aspects of Latin have made their way into the English language, this particular grammar rule is not suited for modern English usage." If such constructions appear unfamiliar to you, your English needs work. idioms.thefreedictionary.com/cheer+on Also, I speak two languages. I don't need to know more than one because I'm American and English is my first. I don't think you'd understand unless you lived here.

CLG are improving but still so unlikable. I hope they drop FNS soon.
2015-08-21 20:11
Josh 'jdm64' Marzano 32-17 +15 18.8 1.59 jesus JDM you're nuts. Feels like the days fr0d (skadoodle) and ksharp (jdm) all over again. WP CLG, but you guys need to tighten up your play and close out games to reach this next level. I'm glad you're all sticking with the same 5 man roster, though--ignore the haters.
