EnVyUs to semi-finals over Na`Vi

EnVyUs have booked the first spot in the ESL One Cologne semi-finals after seeing off Natus Vincere 2-0 (16-13 on de_inferno and 16-10 on de_mirage).

The first map of the series, de_inferno, began with Denis "seized" Kostin going huge in the B site, taking down three opponents before his team-mates completed the job. Na`Vi followed that up with two anti-ecos, but then the first gun round went to the Frenchmen following a fast entry in the B site that caught the two defenders off-guard.

Na`Vi went aggressive in the following round in the banana area, with seized picking up four kills as his team restored a three-round lead. A series of errors on the part of both teams saw them trade the next couple of rounds as the game continued to be played at a high pace.

With neither side being able to stamp their authority, raw talent made the difference: a double AWP kill from Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács at 5-4 left EnVyUs frustrated in a B push, and in the following round Vincent "Happy" Schopenhauer won a 1-vs-2 clutch through smokes thanks to the tracer. Rounds kept going back and forth, with Na`Vi taking a narrow 8-7 lead to the break.

A triple kill from Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko in the pistol round as Terrorist saw Na`Vi further enlarge their lead. The CIS team would add three more rounds to their tally, bringing the scoreline to 13-7, but then EnVyUs finally woke up and started stringing some rounds together. With the scoreline 13-12, Na`Vi called a timeout in an attempt to slow the pace of the game, but there was no stopping the EnVyUs train.


EnVyUs are the first team through to the last-four stage 

Na`Vi knew that it would be very hard for them to turn this around as the decider map of the series was de_dust2, a map they do not feel very comfortable on. Still, that did not keep them from trying.

A flying start from Na`Vi saw them take eight of the first nine rounds, but then EnVyUs finally put their foot down to hold back their opponents and eventually reduced the deficit to 7-8.

Fabien "kioShiMa" Fiey's triple in the pistol round as Terrorist allowed EnVyUs to draw level, and the Frenchmen remained in the driving seat, conceding just two rounds before sealing a fantastic 16-10 win.

i was cheering for Na'Vi, but just so i'll understand, you're bashing him for making reasonable and normal plays? because they're not outstanding? so was he supposed to just hold it without flashing or burn to death?
2015-08-22 13:46
Do you even English? He didn't bash him at all

Ok kids stop it with choke/throw bs. Navi could not adapt while Envy was using same counter against Navi style.

that Návi choke, they even forgot they have tactical pauses LOL

REALLY disappointing from NaVi. They looked so solid prior to this tourney.

GG wp our frenchies !
2015-08-22 13:49
nice start by NaVi, but crumbles in the middle and all the way until the end... They need to learn how to deal with the raging element in game as in every single interview with a navi player weather its zeus or flamie they confirm to always starting to loose once they start raging at each other which forces the team to stop talking to each other and just play "whatever".... At least guaranteed a dreamhack spot for themselves, but as friberg once said: "You dont win a silver, you lose a gold!" Well, gg! gl

Better team won. From 7:13 to 16:13 and from 1:8 to 16:10 - it wasn't lucky, it was show of force and big psychological resistance.
