G2 survive Tempo Storm scare

G2 survive a back-and-forth 16-13 battle with Tempo Storm on de_dust2, as they advance to the winners' match to face FlipSid3 for a spot at the major.

The start of the match between Tempo Storm and G2 was a complete replay of the one in FlipSid3's with Selfless, as the Brazilians took an early 4-1 lead after the first three went back and forth.

Three following rounds saw G2 taking early control over each of the sites, while Tempo Storm had to save a few weapons three times in a row. Henrique "⁠HEN1⁠" Teles picked up three kills in the following round from long to retake the lead, only for G2 to reply back to take the game to 7-5.

Triples from João "⁠felps⁠" Vasconcellos and Gustavo "⁠SHOOWTiME⁠" Gonçalves pushed the game to a tie before Ricardo "⁠boltz⁠" Prass made sure Tempo Storm would go over to Terrorists with a lead, as he picked up four kills, including three in a 2-on-3 retake.


RpK's double at the end pushed G2 over the line

A pistol round victory for TS was negated by Adil "⁠ScreaM⁠" Benrlitom in the B bombsite and G2 tied the map at 9-9 before losing to a very low forcebuy with a saved weapon. The two teams exchanged rounds after 11-9, which forced G2 on a save. 

A saved AWP and a quasi-buy was enough for them to win a round as Richard "⁠shox⁠" Papillon and Edouard "⁠SmithZz⁠" Dubourdeaux picked up crucial doubles on the A bombsite. Exchanging two more meant a poor economical situation for G2, but yet again they ran away with it to equalize the game for the seventh time at 13-13, and even took it to 14-13 due to an eco on Tempo Storm's side.

A very close round afterwards was saved by Cédric "⁠RpK⁠" Guipouy's crazy 180-degree headshot in pit, as shox's patience allowed G2 to get to match point due to time running out. That was soon after exchanged for a narrow 16-13 victory for the French-Belgian team.

Yeah I watched the game and you seem a little salty. Just shows how stupid you are though that you bring DMG into the mix... a DMG player wouldn't be qualifying for LANs and would crumble under pressure instantly. He had a bad game, brought it back towards the end, get over it.

he always has a bad game. Hes not bad with pistol/rifle but hes awful at awping and thats his job. Hes arguably the worst awper in the top 15 teams or in very very strong contention.

i do agree, he's not guardian/kennys/jw but he's an impact AWPer imo. he doesn't get flashy kills but he's there when you need him.
2016-02-26 22:17
6 replies
I disagree about being an impact awper. I think his awful performances just make his good ones look that much better. He had that 1 good round with his awp 2nd half when G2 only had pistols. Most rounds he missed key shots and ez shots. INcluding the shot where someone on TS stood at window not looking and smithzz whiffed a shot of him standing almost still and not even looknig at him One can even expand to him being the worst awper on a team in the top 20.
2016-02-26 22:21

I dont think he's the worst awper, I just think he's not flashy, but our opinions differ so they won't change he did whiff a few shots, but he almost always play like this. good discussion braziliano friend

which awpers in the top 20 are worse? E-frag, optic, SK, imo are the only ones you can make a decent (at best) argument for having the worst awper.

there you go! those teams have awpers that are bad + dont get the kills the team needs (impact frags) smithzz is a really good momentum awper as well

e-frag has no awper. Bubble used to be awping but he's buyin awp only on d2. They r playing 5 rifles like 90% of the time
2016-02-26 23:17
1 reply
I was wondering why i couldnt pick out efrags awper even though ive seen them play a bunch. efrag aint bad. Theyre good..but theyre just missing something...perhaps its a dedicated awper like u say. Im not going to critisize a team with no dedicated awper. G2 has one and hes shit.

Unfortunatelly the brazilians like me dont post often on hltv. I think you can't judge people by hltv cause here is the kind of place that everybody is looking to make jokes and make fun of eachother in a non serious way. At least I take everything in a good way, just for fun. But the thing is that I know when and where I have to give my true and serious opinion about something here in hltv, most of brazilians dont.

Losing both pistols doesn't matter when the other team sucks so much against eco rounds. TS lost 100% of their anti-ecos.

u obviously dont know much about the game if u think losing both pistol in a map doesnt matter LOL its potentially 4-6 "free" rounds and a stable economy building up, TS were just shit at capitalizing it reminds me of G2 some months ago losing to every fucking eco possible but they do it less recently.

Look, you didn't understood what I've said. If you lose ALL your anti-ecos, winning both (TWO) pistols doesn't matter. You win the pistol but lose the round right after (when all your enemies are using pistols). Not only this but TS lost every round they played against a money-reset G2. On this whole situation, winning two pistols means they only got TWO rounds, instead of the supposed six they should've gotten. Got it?
2016-02-27 14:59
agree on the map topic. problem with dust 2 is that it is so puggy that nobody ever perfected it and no one ever will probably. even when astralis were gods on ct side they still lost games, it gives teams a lot of room for strange and individual plays
