EnVyUs move on to Cologne final

EnVyUs are moving on to the grand final of ESL One Cologne following a 2-1 series over TSM (de_cache 16-12, de_dust2 8-16, de_inferno 16-9).

ESL One Cologne's first semi-final started with de_cache, understandably EnVyUs's pick. The first three rounds saw rounds going back and forth, with TSM eventually coming out on top for 2-1 and eventually 5-1 after a couple more gunrounds.

EnVyUs didn't leave any more room to breath as Terrorists for the Danish squad afterwards though, as they kept piling up more and more pressure onto their opposition with executes all around the map for a 10-5 half in their favor.

Thanks to another pistol round, and this time also a successful couple of anti-ecos, TSM were able to even the scoreline at 10-10. The Frenchmen with Fabien "kioShiMa" Fiey on the front lines then got on the board with a couple of rounds going their way, but Nicolai "device" Reedtz's solo double kill at middle put them back on an eco.

Two rounds went all the way down to the wire, but both went EnVyUs' way, making the difference in the end, as they went up 1-0 in the series following a 16-12 scoreline on de_cache.


kioShiMa played lights out on de_cache

TSM started even better on de_dust2, as they went up 7-0 with Finn "karrigan" Andersen scoring 12 kills up to that point. From there on though, it was like EnVyUs flipped a switch, since they scored five rounds in a row without dropping more than two people in either.

In the end TSM still won the half 9-6 as Terrorists, topping it off with a pistol round, both anti-ecos and the first gunround for 14-6. EnVyUs managed to slip two rounds through, but it was too little too late as TSM closed map two 16-8.

de_inferno was chosen by the randomizer to decide who goes on to the grand final. EnVyUs took over the match early on and for a long streak of rounds TSM couldn't find any answers.

The Danish lineup only scored three rounds as Counter-Terrorists, but a fifth pistol round going their way in the series helped them lower the deficit to seven rounds. For five rounds on TSM's side, EnVyUs got two and were two rounds away from the ESL One Cologne grand final.

TSM still had enough in the bank thanks to not dying much to the French forcebuys, but it wasn't enough as Dan "apEX" Madesclaire defused the bomb in a 2-on-2 for match point. Only two rounds after, match point was traded for a grand final spot on the EnVyUs side at 16-9.

Not having a backup mouse with you is retarded.
2015-08-23 15:22
No arguments here. It sucks, and it's probably a big reason why TSM lost, but that's not to say they couldn't have prevented it themselves if they'd used even a modicum of common sense.

The pace of envy's executions on inferno was godlike. And there were people that seriously thought that after the players swap titan was getting the better deal xD Best game in the tournament so far, TSM disappointing me a bit, they can do better but Envy outclassed them completly. GGWP, Hope they put up a good fight in the final as well.

Fak. Fuck the 3rd Random Map. But I think if Fnatic makes it to the final, they will destroy Envy. If it was TSM, TSM would have a Chance to win to final because they can counter Fnatic.

Now I'd like to see again all those idiots, that kept saying "reshuffle favoured Titan, nV to fail, you can't win having 2 openfraggers, apEX suxx, blablabla". Told ya - nV to be among the best again, while Titan to fail hugely, as always. Who was right?
2015-08-23 15:47
NBK going ham, ezpz for nV against VP/Fnatic lelelel

2015-08-23 16:46
congratz towards nV, they played very well and proved themselves with the new lineup
2015-08-23 16:54
Lol 5/6 pistol rounds going tsms way yet they still lose convincingly on 2 maps
2015-08-23 19:14
Kenny is literally a joke player in envyus just to increase sticker revenue
