Luminosity to last-four over Na`Vi

Luminosity Gaming are through to the semi-finals of the SL i-League StarSeries XIV Finals after beating Natus Vincere 2-0 (16-14 on de_train and 16-9 on de_mirage).

Luminosity and Natus Vincere entered this match riding the wave after picking up 2-0 wins during the opening round, and, as many had predicted, this was a fantastic series to watch from start to finish.

Train was the Brazilians' map pick, but it was Na`Vi who came out the brighter, having picked up the opening three rounds. Luminosity were able to hit back in gun rounds and won eight of the following nine rounds to bring the scoreline to 8-4. Na`Vi was starting to lose control of proceedings, but then Ioann "Edward" Sukhariev kept his team in the race with two stunning rounds.

Down 7-8, Na`Vi won the pistol and followed it up with the first anti-eco. The CIS team looked to be in a position to take a solid lead, but Luminosity put together a significant run of rounds to make it 14-10. Na`Vi battled back and won four of the next five rounds, but their hopes of taking the game to overtime were shattered by Marcelo "coldzera" David, who pulled off an incredible 1vs4 clutch to give Luminosity the lead.


cold's clutch gave Luminosity the win on de_train 

Next up was de_mirage, where Luminosity got out to a five-round lead before Na`Vi could get their first round. The CIS lineup also added the next round to their tally, but their streak was cut short by a 1vs3 clutch from Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo with the AWP. Luminosity kept pushing and brought the scoreline to 7-2, but Na`Vi were simply dominant during the final stages of the half, winning six rounds in a row to take an 8-7 lead into the second half.

Now playing on the Terrorist side, Luminosity were in control from the outset, dropping just one round in the entire half to seal a 16-9 victory and a 2-0 overall success.

Navi have an 8-1 record in maps on LAN over LG and you still predicted LG? Who the fuck wouldn't pick Navi in that situation.

Somebody that isn't brain dead. All the wins in that record are before LG replaced 2 players. You can't just use those stats of the older squad.
2016-01-13 21:16
The core of the team is the same. I will admit FNX is a big upgrade compared to boltz and steel but TACO is average on an international level. I would still favour Navi even if those stats are before the change.
2016-01-13 21:20
maybe TACO is not a good aimer but clearly he has skill that´s the thing

LG had proved that they could beat any top team. Yes, they got rekted by Na'Vi twice in BO3, but it was pretty obvious that LG would come back better on new year - just like every time they played in EU. I suppose every time LG performs well is considered a fluke, because they always fail the next few events, but they ALWAYS come back stronger. There isn't a single time that this didn't happen. If you ask me, 2-0 to Na'Vi is just as stupid as 2-0 to LG. The better pick there, based on the history of LG and Na'Vi, would be 2-1 to Na'Vi. I know you are from UK, so you probably love Thorin, but he clearly can't do the math with teams like LG.
2016-01-13 21:40
LG is like Hydra, you cut one head and next time are two heads
2016-01-13 21:56
If you use this logic LG must be Nr1 world considering how often they got rekt :)
2016-01-14 09:47
They are in 2016 so far
2016-01-14 14:22
true actually
2016-01-14 18:26
I agree with you, but the only thing that could make them predict in favor of LG was the DH winter 'miracle' run. When they beat a few teams that were use to beat NaVi. But still would be a risky prediction to go for LG. Based on a single tournament. If i wasn't brazilian i'll probably go for NaVI.
2016-01-14 03:26
youtube.com/watch?v=A-3BUUveLMI It's easy to talk about how someone is an idiot for picking another team after the match has ended.
2016-01-13 21:13
Lol predicition is not perfect and he gives reasons for every prediction he makes so instead of calling him an idiot why dont you find where his reasoning is wrong and explain it
2016-01-13 21:49
Na'Vi has won 8 out of 9 maps versus Luminosity, you are retarded if you predict them winning. To have a high "prediction rate" you should always predict the one with the best record between the teams, maybe taking some of their current form into account if one of them is doing especially bad at the time (NiP mid 2015) or better than ever (C9 late spring/early summer 2015). Thorin is overall the best at predicting the correct winners and scores as he actually has rational reasons for his picks, not like all of these HTLV retards such as yourself who just say something along the lines of "I think X will win because I feel like the will".
2016-01-13 21:21
nt Thorin
2016-01-13 21:32
You're cancer
2016-01-13 21:50
I mean every single time the two teams play it has been very close. More of the games were overtime, 16-14, or 16-13 than anything else and LG has definitely improved. Na'Vi has been doing well as well, but LG has improved more recently than Na'Vi. It wasn't a terrible prediction to say LG would win though it wouldn't be bad to predict Na'Vi either. Really the only bad prediction would be that it would be really heavily favored either way. Edit: The lounge odds were stupid though. If I was betting currently I would have bet heavily on LG just because I would have said it was closer to 50/50 or 55/45 than what the odds were on lounge.

just stop that... you must understand that its impossible to have a team with 5 mad fraggers. even flusha dropped his number of kills when he started the igl role after pronax leave and dennis join. You must see the TEAM performance, and with TACO they are doing MUCH better. I agree that boltz is better individualy than taco, but the team is winning with taco, he has his roles and he helps the team. The teams tune its what matter, and with taco, all other 4 players are doing amazing.
2016-01-14 04:45
People need to learn respect for LG. They are clearly a top contender and not just a luck team as Cloud9.
2016-01-13 20:43

Not all my friend, LG is winning games that no win 6 mounths ago, this make me happy but they need to continue to be consolidaded on internacional championships, i hope That :D
2016-01-13 21:08
People need to respect LG from now on. After fnx and TACO joined the team clearly have more power in clutchers moments. They are so far more confident...I am not sure if they will win the tournament but of course 2016 will be an amazing year for LG team.

I've never said BO3. That's a fair comment though - BO1 doesn't paint a clear picture.
2016-01-13 22:00
Ok i will say my opinion. I totaly respect and Na'Vi and LG. And if really i was like 75% sure that Na'Vi will win again. But LG showed some great rounds( THIS TIME REALLY) even TACO got some BIG kills. Yeah yeah, everybody can say its luck or etc.. ofcourse if we will look at first map de_train, where last round was FOR SURE !!! Na'Vi round, and it should be finished with DRAW !. But no, somehow Cold managed to take 1v4. ( yes maybe its luck or something like that) but guys in every game, any team have luck, maybe on last round, maybe on first round or etc.. so dont blame them both teams played good. I really enjoy to watch LG vs Na'Vi match, becouse its always CLOSE MATCH, like Final ! But this time stronger won !.. Thats it.. that is all metters..
2016-01-13 21:17
1x4 is never luck. better to say that zeus fucked it up or navi chocked, but luck? coldzera? cmon.
2016-01-13 21:20
Dude im not saying about cold bad.. really ? WTF ? im just saying he left alone 1vs4... yeah ZEUS is really fuk'd up that round. But and COLD show'd, that he is really good and clever !

I understand that he's saying that last round was luck. And that's why I replied that there's no luck on a 1vs4, specially against Navi. Don't play the nice and smart guy on hltv dude. please.

Where did u get that from? U just said "Yeah yeah, everybody can say its luck or etc.. ofcourse if we will look at first map de_train, where last round was FOR SURE !!!". U'r saying that last round was luck. Right? That's why I commented that.

Well i'm saying yes, little bit luck, addmit that..
2016-01-13 22:17
Yeah.. no luck shot imo, but "luck" that NaVi players were kinda chasing him and just make those frags easier than it should be.

at last they beat Na`Vi :D funny stuff how mad some fanboys are.
2016-01-14 02:02
LG can beat NaVi and NaVi can beat LG now., will be funny watch LG games versus EU now, becase they realy has a chance in BO3. Bets will be a risk
2016-01-14 02:17
really Well played by LG. glad to see them happy at last :D
2016-01-14 12:00
Yes, they vibrate in victories. It must be very difficult to live in a country that is not yours, 24 hours a day with the team living CS and see that this has given results and is of Brazilian culture shouting and gesturing in sports in general
