Gambit defeat Renegades to qualify

Striker
February 27th, 2016 23:03

Gambit have joined mousesports, G2 and SPLYCE in the first half of qualified teams for MLG Columbus 2016 after a clutch-filled victory over Renegades, 16-11 on de_train.

After Gambit kicked things off by overpowering the A bombsite in the pistol, Justin "jks" Savage replied with a triple in a 2-on-4 in the following forcebuy, but Rustem "mou" Telepov took it back with an ace (and a teamkill) attacking the lower bombsite.

At 5-1 Renegades picked up the pace and snatched four rounds away, including one thanks to a 1-on-1 clutch by jks.

The next two rounds were exchanged between the two, as jks came out on top of another clutch, this time a 1-on-2 on the back of Yaman "yam" Ergenekon's triple with the AWP. Losing the next round was detrimental for Renegades' economy and they lost all remaining rounds to switch over with a measly six rounds on the CT side.


AdreN and mou put up a great performance

A convincing pistol round and a couple of unsuccessful forcebuys by the Australians pushed the CIS-based team to 12-6, but heroics from Karlo "USTILO" Pivac and Chad "SPUNJ" Burchill helped claw it back to 12-9.

Doubles by newcomer USTILO and jks added two more rounds to the scoreboard, but Gambit didn't take long to take it back with three in a row, including two clutch situations by Mihail "Dosia" Stolyarov and mou, to reach match point at 15-11. One more clutch round later, Gambit could celebrate qualifying for the $1,000,000 major at 16-11.

HellRaisers keeps struggling to qualify for a major year after year, while some of their ex players builds a new roster and qualifies right away. Glad that Dosia, mou and AdreN left kucher & ANGE1 behind. We now know who's the problem in HellRaisers.

1 - The orgs origin doesn't matter at all when chosing flags, it never mattered (fnatic from Australia, Envy from USA, SK from Germany, etc). 2 - Two out of three is not 'half'. 40% is not half, its ne minority, in fact.
2016-02-27 23:16

He's russian? Why does he wears the Finnish flag on HLTV then? I'm not talking about CIS scene, I'm talking about the wrong choice from HLTV. But I know the real reason: with the RU flag, it will attract tons of Russians to their site, the view counter is what matters.

2016-03-03 03:43
I thought you said talented According to you, since NiKo couldnt pull his team over the line to get out of groups even with 38 frags, he's not talented. lol

2016-03-03 04:46
You're saying they're not talented because of their teammates NiKo didn't qualify for the playoffs of Katowice because of his teammates, that means he's untalented right?

Australia Lolfeminists 
Why are you discussing NiKo when the actual point is the standard of skill in the AU scene is a joke and not even in parallel to Euro. NiKo should not be discussed. Do you even apply logic before posting.
2016-03-03 08:35
You're saying there are no talented players in AU because they have "failed to qualify for a major, or step-up to pull the team over the line." So I'm bringing NiKo into this because according to your logic, he's not talented because of his teammate. Your logic is horribly flawed, the end.

NiKo is not in AU scene How are you this fucking stupid at logic. No wonder AU fail to ever qualify for anything.
