Luminosity & fnatic pick up wins

fnatic finished out their group stage with a 16-4 win against TheMongolz on de_cache whereas Luminosity pulled off a miraculous comeback against mousesports, 16-14 on de_cbble.

For the next two group stage matches at IEM Katowice's Group A, the Swedish powerhouse that is fnatic prepared to face-off against TheMongolz, the Asian team who so far struggled to make an impression at the event.

In the other game, it was mousesports battling Luminosity, with the former team standing at a 2-1 record in the groups and desperately needing a win in order to advance whereas Luminosity remained undefeated at 3-0 which included a win over fnatic.


FalleN continues to stun with his AWPing in the rounds that matter

The fnatic vs. TheMongolz game was a generally one-sided affair as a Freddy "KRIMZ" Johansson led the way in his team in demolishing the Mongolian players, first with a 13-2 CT-side and then shutting down the game with a final 16-4 scoreline.

In the other match-up, Luminosity appeared poised to take a victory over mousesports following an 8-7 lead at the first half (although admittedly less rounds than are sometimes seen on Cobblestone's Terrorist side).

However, with Nikola "NiKo" Kovač putting in a strong performance, the German team powered ahead to a 14-8 lead and looked ready to deliver the Brazilian team their first defeat of the tournament.

With Fernando "fer" Alvarenga and especially Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo being instrumental in key moments late into the second half however, Luminosity edged their way into the game and won 16-14 in the end. mousesports' defeat also included Johannes "nex" Maget mistakenly attempting to plant the bomb in a non-plantable spot on the A-site, which moved the score up to 15-14.

No one's mentioning TACO's crucial couple of rounds where he just held down the B site? FalleN's move on the last round was so clever, shooting so no one could hear him and he just clutched it out, so entertaining.
