SK send Question Mark packing

SK send Question Mark packing after a 2-1 upset (de_cache 16-2, de_train 9-16, de_mirage 16-13) at Fragbite Masters Season 5 Finals.

de_cache kicked off the domestic match-up between SK and Question Mark and that time around the former had a much better start into the series following their yesterday's blowout versus NiP. Emil "Magisk" Reif's triple headshot and Casper "cadiaN" Møller's quad-kill in a 3-on-5 as Counter-Terrorists put their team up to 2-0 to start things off.

The battle of individuals continued, this time it was Andreas "Xyp9x" Højsleth's time to shine in a 1-on-2, but SK fought back in the rounds after and put them on eco for 4-1. Michael "Friis" Jørgensen picked up an AWP into quad and got a triple-kill with it and SK's domination continued.

Question Mark eventually found a way to break SK's defense with a quick A split for 2-8, although SK didn't back down and with another triple from the Danish sniper along the way, the scoreline at halftime said 13-2. A very confident pistol round win after switching over pushed SK over the finish line for 16-2 in the end.


Friis played a pivotal role in SK's success

SK's pick, de_train, followed as map number two, where QM were the ones to kick it off the better as CT, getting a 3-0 lead after retaking the B bombsite in the pistol round. In spite of numerous problems with SK's forcebuys, they got up to 6-0, much thanks to individual performances from Peter "dupreeh" Rasmussen and Xyp9x on the B bombsite.

René "cajunb" Borg piled on the fire with a triple in the outer bombsite and not even a timeout helped SK find a gap in QM's defense, as the latter continued to thrive up until 9-0. That was when Asger "AcilioN" Larsen turned a 1-on-2 on its head, only for his team to be thrown back on the ground for another 13-2 at halftime.

The other half didn't turn out the same as on map one, since SK executed a retake on B in the pistol, and AcilioN found success in another 1-on-2 clutch for 13-5. SK continued to turn unfavorable situations around up until 13-8, when QM got two rounds on the board for map point.

cadiaN and Nicolai "device" Reedtz found themselves in a ridiculous 1-on-1 situation afterwards, when both kept running around a smoke before the former defused the bomb, as device couldn't find him with his knife out. That didn't change much in the outcome though, as QM still evened the series at 16-9, 1-1.


Acilion had numerous multikills in important gunrounds on the last map

It seemed like map three, de_mirage, was going a similar direction to de_train in the beginning, Question Mark as Terrorists got a solid 5-1 start with a won pistol round and the second gunround, with a few ecos thrown in.

SK proved many wrong right afterwards though, very much thanks to AcilioN, who got four kills over the next four gunrounds on the A bombsite to take six rounds in a row for his team. Another A strategy was successful the fifth time around for QM, and a switch-up on B as well, but it was Friis deciding who would take the 8-7 lead with a narrow 1-on-2 clutch.

Finn "karrigan" Andersen's squad took the second pistol as well, but AcilioN's fake in the following forcebuy allowed cadiaN to plant the bomb on the other bombsite and come out on top of a 1-on-1 at the end for 10-8. QM only bought a few P250s and stacked A as opposed to forcebuying in the following round, which paid off as they overpowered the attack from SK.

After a forcebuy from SK, QM ran over their opposition three rounds in a row for a 13-10 lead, but yet again the underdogs turned it around and made it 13-13 after Andreas "MODDII" Fridh and Friis combined for five kills on the A bombsite. Running into an eco stack didn't change anything, and a great teamplay in a bad situation allowed SK to take match point, which was turned into 16-13 to complete the upset in Stockholm.

I think I figured Friis out, either he is godmode at LAN's or he is botmode, also, he will always be botmode online it seems. God Friis this LAN doe.
2015-12-05 17:25
i just dont get it how people suck online and destroy on lan old complexity all over again
2015-12-05 17:50
Same reason people suck at 64tick and destroy on 128tick. It's basically a different game. One benefit players that see the opponent and bhop away, or enter the fight jumping around corners, or adadadad the fight. The other benefit players that commit to the fight to kill or die.
2015-12-05 18:14
can u plz explain more? I suck at MM.
2015-12-05 19:27
Easier to hit bullets because netcode and ping is better makes it so there's little point of trying to dodge and run away. In MM you're better of being mobile, bursting and such. On LAN you can just stop and spray and people die before they can react. If you miss your first burst you probably won't live to try another. There not "being harder to hit", players WILL hit and kill you unless you kill them first.

Fnatic made ONE bad tournament, went from top1 to top5. TSM went out in the group last tournament, made a really bad tournament before, losing so many online games and this lan they didnt win a single game = top2 ? Logic ... They aren't Even in top 5 anymore, and why does everyone hate fnatic ? People just envy fnatic i think.

Fnatic fell mostly because of their roster change. The ranking takes that into account. Might want to understand how the ranking works before criticizing it...
2015-12-05 17:41
+1, they also skipped a couple of tournaments that many other top teams such as TSM did attend.
2015-12-05 20:07
And this is why I said mTw would take some of former TSM to make their team. This current danish roster has reached its peak. Well done SK.

today he was... i mean come on.... even a silver with no sound plays better, and checks corners
2015-12-05 17:34
What i ment is that he is a really good player but atm his really in a slump. Look at his recent stats. In the last 3 months 0.98 but overall in 2015 he has 1.12. hltv.org/?pageid=334&playerid=7592 EDIT: The post above was wrong the stats i was talking about was major stats. Still hes stats on LAN in general is lower in the last 3 months than 2015 in general.
2015-12-05 17:45
yeah u`r right... it`s like JW, hes slumping also but still carries for fnatic, but device loosing stupid clutches and not even checking corners, thats dumb
