flusha: "LG & NiP our biggest threats"

Our fourth pre-interview before MLG Columbus is with the biggest favourites of the $1,000,000 tournament, fnatic, whose Robin "flusha" Rönnquist shared his thoughts on numerous topics surrounding the team and the major.

fnatic are going to MLG Columbus as undisputed favourites, as they won all six events they have attended ever since acquiring Dennis "dennis" Edman.

We got in touch with Robin "flusha" Rönnquist to conduct a pre-interview with him about everything and anything connected to the first major in North America:

How will you prepare / how have you prepared for MLG Columbus? Was there / will there be a bootcamp prior to the major or have you only been practising online? Is there anything you focused on specifically? 
A: We have prepared as we have always been preparing for a big event, by practicing online for about 5-6 hours 5 days a week, we have looked over our problems on all the maps and found both solutions and ways to play more safe and structured. 
Recently teams have stopped bootcamping prior to big events or only do it for short periods of time, mostly for less than a week, why do you think that is? Is it as important nowadays as it used to be? What are the pros and cons for your team?
A: We have never had a bootcamp with this lineup or even with pronax, as we feel more comfortable using the time we spend online very dedicated and then get to do whatever we need to do in our “real-life” lifes. 
There are many tournaments going on nowadays, usually at least two significant ones per month, does that make it hard for teams to be able to adapt and improve their gameplay significantly? Could it be part of the reason why CS:GO has become more based on individual plays rather than tactics?
A: Ofcourse with all the tournaments going in you will have a hard time finding time to create more elaborate tactics and setups, but even if you only have a few days to practice before the next event you need to be dedicated and actually try to fix the mistakes rather than take a few days off to “reset” your mind, thats what i think alot of the teams dont do. I dont think CS:GO is more based on the individual plays rather than tactics, its just that the teams that has been winning the most recently does not feel comfortable playing a more tactical game, its all up to the teams to decide whether they want to play loose or strict, and in fnatic all 5 of us actually want to play loose.
Do you feel comfortable with the group that has been assigned to you? Can you go through each of the possible match-ups (FaZe, SPLYCE, Liquid) and tell us how you should fare in them?
A: This is one of the most comfortable groups we have ever had. Faze play a really individual style which suits us well, because then we can play the way we are most known for, taking alot of duels and mainly focusing on teamplay, synergy and revenge fragging. We dont know alot about how the NA teams play but we feel like we have the best map-pool right now and we can force them to play a map they wouldnt feel comfortable on.
Could there be a better system of seeding other than based on the last major and the qualifier? Current format practically ignores all competitions taking place in between the majors, which is five months' worth of events in this case…
A: Theres always pros and cons of every type of seeding. The majors want to stand by themselves in this regard and i guess its fine.
What expectations and goals have you set for yourselves at this event? What placing would you be satisfied with and what would be unacceptable?
A: Anything else then a win would pretty much be devastating right now, with the form we are having and how we have been playing since we acquired dennis anything other then reaching the finals would be unacceptable. 
With how different teams have stepped up lately (LG and Na`Vi especially) and others are stagnating or even dropping off, who do you have as favourites to make the top four? And, on the other hand, is there an underdog who could surpass fans' expectations?
A: Fnatic, LG, Na’Vi and Astralis(always semis right), I dont know if “underdog” is the correct term but NiP has been playing really well lately so its hard to tell how good they will be doing at the major but i wouldnt be surprised if they ended up in the top4 or even the finals.
There will be four American teams in attendance (SPLYCE, CLG, Liquid and Cloud9), more than ever, is this the time to shine for North America? Which of them have the biggest chance to advance to playoffs and possibly upset one of the big names?
A: Both Splyce and Liquid might have a chance against FaZe depending on if they have a good or bad day. Cloud9 also has a small chance to advance if everything goes their way, but the biggest chance i would give to Liquid.
Valve implemented the new timers shortly after the previous major - now that we have seen almost three months of competition with them, how do you think they affect each of the sides and the overall balance? Do you believe Valve achieved what they wanted to with the change?
A: I would say Valve didnt achieve what they wanted, since now most teams are playing a rather slow playstyle with alot of dead time in rounds, i cant say i can credit the timers for the new meta rather than coaches and ingame-leaders seeing how teams like LG and Na’Vi were successful with that playstyle and would adopt that into how themselves “should” be playing.
You have been on a winning run since picking up dennis. Is there a significant difference in the team’s play style from the team with pronax to the team now? Did you expect to be this successful so quickly?
A: There is definitely a significant difference in the teams play style compared to before, but we are always evolving the way we play on all the maps, and we are still thinking about using certain things pronax was calling earlier. I did not expect us to be so successful already from the start but i always knew we would go to be a top team, just not as soon as we picked up dennis.
The team’s winning run also coincided with olofmeister returning to his best form. How important is he to the success of the team?
A: He is very important to the success of the team, just as equal to everyone else in Fnatic.
Many believe that this is your title to lose. Looking at the teams who will be in Columbus, which do you think that will be your biggest threats?
A: Every of the last 2-3 tournaments there has been said that this is the tournament we wont win, but we will prove time and time again that we are the best team and we are going to stay that way. The biggest threats for us right now would be Luminosity and NiP i would say.
In Barcelona, EnVyUs were the only team that you lost to, but they have been going through a difficult moment. Looking at the team since picking up DEVIL, what is your opinion about them?
A: Since Envy has not really succeeded in what they were trying to fix yet i have not formed an opinion about them yet, but i can say that i believe they chose to replace the wrong player.

How have you been preparing for MLG Columbus? Was there or will there be a bootcamp prior to the major or have you only been practising online? Is there anything you focused on specifically? 

We have prepared as we have always been preparing for a big event, by practicing online for about 5-6 hours 5 days a week, we have looked over our problems on all the maps and found both solutions and ways to play more safe and structured.

fnatic have been a dominant force with flusha holding the reins

One of fnatic's big threats, according to flusha

Valve implemented the new timers shortly after the previous major - now that we have seen almost three months of competition with them, how do you think they affect each of the sides and the overall balance? Do you believe Valve achieved what they wanted to with the change?

I would say Valve didn't achieve what they wanted, since now most teams are playing a rather slow playstyle with a lot of dead time in rounds, I can't say I can credit the timers for the new meta rather than coaches and in-game leaders seeing how teams like LG and Na`Vi were successful with that playstyle and would adopt that into how they "should" be playing.

You have been on a winning run since picking up dennis. Is there a significant difference in the team's play style from the team with pronax to the team now? Did you expect to be this successful so quickly?

In all honesty, NiP has delivered on LAN more than Online. Do you watch the pro scene at all? They went to five finals in a row.

2016-03-25 18:01
The new iteration of NiP (with pyth) are onliners. They're dominating the pro league, but they got shit on at IEM katowice

13-16 vs Na'Vi (on NiP's worst map) 14-16 vs fnatic (on fnatic's best map) 16-13 vs Luminosity 8-16 vs mouz was unfortunate, it just happens sometimes, even if it was one of mouz's best maps. But such close results vs 3 of the eventual top 4 of katowice and the 3 best teams in the world, even beating one of them? They say the NiP fans are delusional but I'd say some of the haters are even more delusional. Those results definitely don't speak of NiP getting shit on, so please stop being a delusional hater. Yeah they lost 2 out of those 3 'elite' games, but they were very close and against two of the best teams in the world.
2016-03-25 18:20
No, you've just proved my point. NiP fans are claiming that "NiP are back" and "We're going to win Columbus" when in reality they've only proved that they're dominant online and haven't beaten any elite level teams on LAN (in a bo3)

They've been to 1 LAN this year so far, allow them to attend some more lol. And how did I prove your point? They were not shit on, my yellow-toothed friend. Is it so hard to understand maths? 16-14 = 2, not >=10.
2016-03-25 18:25
At the end of the day they went 1-4 in the group and didn't qualify. It doesn't matter if they were close maps. A 1-4 map count it equivalent to getting shit on.
2016-03-25 21:18

you do know NiP have attended one lan since the roster change. And all games they played were bo1. If it was Bo3 we be able to judge how they play on lan without as many arguments against it.

can you stop embarrassing the UK mate honestly. Those map results really don's show NiP as being "shit on"do they. Time will tell so chill out you meat head

Jesus Christ, I didn't know Brits could be such brickheads. NiP went 2-3 in the group stage and they were not shit on. They didn't play any bo3's because the group had a bo1 format and that was the only LAN NiP have attended so far. Along with having no scene, your stupidity really puts up a negative image of the UK.
2016-03-26 06:22
attended 1 lan with bo1 format -> "haven't beaten any elite level teams on Lan(bo3)" hltv logic once again. i am not even a nip fan but the level of stupidity on hltv, in comments like urs is just so damn high :)
2016-03-25 18:38
Well the bo3 bit doesn't even matter because they haven't even pulled of a bo1 upset. Also you're evidently a NiP fan, but you're trying to hide it because you're embarassed of their shit results
2016-03-25 21:14
they won against lg if i remember correctly (top 2 team according to fnatic players), thats an upset i'd say. but whatever, keep hating dude, cba :)
2016-03-25 21:38
upset ? :D Dude we are talking about NIP.. not some newcomers The ONLY god fucking Team to had a 87-0-0 Run Oh wait they did pull an upset... they fell from the Top to being pretty out of shape for a long time. Happens to the best oh btw. NIP is the only 100% Clean Topteam /lol

Ayyyyy man,NiP is nothing more but an online team. 13-16 vs Na'Vi,didnt watch map,I dont even know which map. 14-16 against FNC on Inferno?Well,its still a win(after all most of the fnatic's matches are close),but I dont even bother with NiP's online matches because most of them are nothing but pure ddos(twice in row people that are playing against NiP are suddenly facing internet problems?I dont think so.) They were losing 9-1 against VP on overpass,and then Pasha got ddosed,legit right? Match before,against Faze on DD2,halftime was 10-5 in favor of NiP and then one of the faze players got ddosed..

Have you actually watched all their matches in the EPL? 4 out of their 14 wins had DDoS involved. They were losing 1-7 and then pasha got DDoS'd. But then pasha returned before the match resumed right? Check your facts and then make your arguments.
2016-03-26 06:28
pasha was playing with high ping after he returned but w/e he was playing like shit even with no lags.

I agree the mouse match was bad but to go 16-14 and 16-13 to the top 3 teams right now is not shit in.
2016-03-25 20:20
How so? The core 4 that have not changed have always outperformed themselves on LAN. They wouldn't be here if they didn't overperform on LAN, since they weren't even a top10 team online at the time of Cluj.
2016-03-25 20:43
Im pretty sure they had not played any EPL games before Katowice maybe one or two but not more.

2016-03-25 21:19
It doesn't matter if they were close maps. What matters at the end of the day is that they went 1-4 in the groups, and therefore weren't close to qualifying.
2016-03-25 21:20
WHO FUCKING GIVES A SHIT THAT THEY VENT 2-4 (not 1-4 idiot) THEY'VE WON 14 ROUNDS AGAINST FNATIC YOU CUNT. 14 ROUNDS!. ON FNATICS BEST MAP. DONT YOU FUCKING DARE TO TELL THAT THATS NOT AN ACOMPLISHMENT. AND ALSO 13 ROUNDS AGAINST NAVI ON NIPS WORST MAP. Hurhur its still loss. Brainless... Sorry I get mad kinda easilly

that argument is plain retarded since nip has been at only 1 lan this whole year. of course they seem like onliners if they havent had a chance to go on lan.
2016-03-26 17:04
Hahhahahah, they always do much better at majors, so no
2016-03-25 19:05
Ok then. Since they're top of the pro league they need to win the major to do much better at majors. I'm not saying they didn't do better in the past because they did, for example, at Cluj. However, leading up to this major they're the best team online, and they won't keep this up as long as Fnatic, LG, Navi and Astralis are around.

Well they did win Cache 16-5 over them recently and had a close game on Inferno. Plus they also played 16-14 on Inferno in Katowice and it was stupid ninja defuse that made them lose that match basically. I would say Fnatic has pretty good reason to fear NiP.
2016-03-25 20:47
+1 but retards only see that NiP didn't go out of groups in katowice. They were unlucky against NaVi and fnatic. NiP look strong.

im not saying they wont go out of groups, im saying they wont win against fnatic in bo3 :>

Flusha = best favela csgo player <3
2016-03-25 17:32
do all esports journalists everywhere have an agreement not to ask flusha hard questions about his cheating clips even though it's an ongoing issue that even the casters talk about?

Its a pre-interview about the major, they dont talk about him personally
2016-03-25 17:45
What do you suggest the interviewer would ask? Were you cheating in this clip? Did you cheat in this tournoument? How many times have you cheated? Where do you buy your cheats? How much do you pay for them? Come on man, journalist don't ask this kind of shit in any kind of sports. They ask when the cheating, dopping have been proven. Journalism is not speculation, this is what entertainers, like casters, do.
2016-03-25 17:46
they could ask him why he doesn't do anything to try to end the continuing controversy that follows his name. they could ask him if his reputation damages the image of the pro scene and whether his actions in response have made the situation worse? i'm sure someone who's professional could think of some insightful ones.
2016-03-25 18:06
I can answer that for him. It's because hes one of the few people in the world who truly doesn't give a fuck about what other people think about him. He's not a pretender. He really doesn't feel any need to prove shit to people like you.
2016-03-25 18:16
yeah that is the impression he gives. but i think it'd be good for someone to ask him directly that question. so we have an actual response in his own words. like he was all teary-eyed when he first denied it. then every time since he's like idgaf and he's trolling people about it.
2016-03-25 18:19
What? He was teary eyed? You're misremembering man. He posted a cold text response that showed no emotion. However he did tell you why all the way back in 2014. When he said he just lifts his mouse a lot. I guess you're one of the many who didn't understand what that means and thinks it's just a meme?
2016-03-25 18:26
Because some angry nerds behind a computer doesn't hurt him, all this "controversy" never hurt his carrer, so there's no point in giving legitimacy to this claims. Edit: hit this topic on an interview woud look like sensationalism.
2016-03-25 18:24
Yep, good point about giving legitimacy to unproven claims.
2016-03-25 18:27
it has nothing to do legitimising the accusations. the accusations themselves are not in doubt, they exist and can be talked about. hltv and reddit already reported about the accusations in the past, if talking about them alone gave them legitimacy flusha wouldn't be playing.
2016-03-25 18:37
To end this discussion. Flusha obviously doesn't want to talk about it due to what happened last time he tried to "explain", which is understandable. He would never agree to an interview if that was the topic of discussion. Also, this is labeled mlg preview. Kinda off topic to bring the hackusations up...
2016-03-25 22:24
it's not all about him. i would like to know his thoughts on his responsibility towards the scene. he funded kabum's 1st trip to katowice. but he doesn't care that whenever his name is mentioned (and by extension fnatic & csgo) cheating is brought up. it's for him to elaborate and for an ethical journalist to ask.

its not an ongoing issue wtf are u ona about casters joke about it saying "flusha things" but if you're one of those kids who still thinks hes cheating u must be really fucking stupid
2016-03-25 17:53

I'm not one of those to call you stupid if you think he cheat s/ed but you have only 3 options: 1. wait for VAC to catch him 2. wait for him to admit 3. whine about it
2016-03-25 18:12
For exactly that reason. If someone asks him that, and god forbid if he even answers in some form, it's gonna bring in even more retards, much like yourself, who're gonna talk shit. He's doing exactly the right thing, he doesn't acknowledge it. Cause what's the point in doing so? He isn't gonna say he's cheating, that would be just stupid. Even if he WAS cheating, there's no evidence, so admitting anything is just a self-fuck. And if he says he ain't cheating (which he did before, when this whole retardation started), the moronic witchhunters aren't gonna believe him anyway. Since there's literally NOTHING he can do to actually proof he's clean (just like nobody can proof he's not), all he can do is shut up and hope the kids grow up at some point.
2016-03-25 18:56
there would have been nothing wrong with asking the following: "Can you explain to us what happened in that clip vs inferno vs Nip where your crosshair made unnatural movement?" and also the clip on cache. if i have missed his response to these, my bad but afaik i havent seen an explanation yet. Ive only seen farfetched but yet plausible explenations that the community/defenders came with. no idiot on the planet would ask: yo do you cheat? that would be awkward and retarded. He doesnt have to answer it, he can avoid it if he wants to. But that will raise questionsmarks for me. Dont give me: hes avoiding to prevent more retards coming with retard alu head conspiracy stuff. coz thats a bs reason its a fact hes the only one in cs history with so much fishy stuff...ever.

2016-03-25 17:36
True, but I feel like they can do it now. Seized, flamie, godian all carry potential.
2016-03-25 17:37
Yeah, and flusha, who knows way more than you considering their matchups (since he actually plays himself, in case you missed it), doesn't "feel like they can do it now". Your point being?

2016-03-25 17:49
Well they did go 3-2 in esea finals. 2 maps going to 16-14 in favor of fnatic which were na'vis best maps (overpass and d2). I believe now that flamie has been more consistent and guardian has this insane form atm, they have a chance.
2016-03-25 18:10
Some people never learn... Not gonna spend time to explain it right now, but fnatic simply don't respect navi skill wise. Hence why they can't lose to them.
2016-03-25 18:19
Dude, stop talking shit. Do you really think a cheapass lan proven top 20 player for the last 3 years like fucking flusha knows more about his matchups against top teams than a random guy who probably constantly PTSD's right now when he hears "the bomb has been planted"?

its hard not to deny that 14-2, especially after NiP got the last two wins by bending over Astralis and entering without lube besides, fnatic and NiP have always been closely matched
2016-03-25 18:08
Yes? He knows they have the best match up against them. Pretty much always did.
2016-03-25 18:21
not really to win the tournament but to beat fnatic at least
2016-03-25 18:26
thats obvious if astralis, EnvyUs and VP are all heavily slumping
2016-03-25 18:07
The only team out of those 3 that could beat NIP is nV in top form.
2016-03-25 18:11
made my day, thanks
2016-03-25 18:12
I meant out of Astralis, nV & VP. I know Fnatic & LG still can, but NIP at this point is a top 3 candidate for the major again.
2016-03-25 18:13

ToP 3 because other teams are even more shit than NiP except LG,NaVi and fnatic, so if they lose in semis they are 3rd-4th place, which means top3
2016-03-26 01:58
Nope they won't make it out of groups, btw they don't even look good online atm, they are not better than anyone that's the funny part even with the easy group like they get at every fucking major they will still lose in groups.
2016-03-26 16:57
keep telling yourself that...
2016-03-27 17:27
Im beginning to think that youre serious about the thing you said. :D astralis in top shape is a whole different ballgame than nip and theyve shown that the last 12 months. Didnt see NiP back then anywhere close to being relevant. They got some strenght back lately but still havent proven shit on events yet and like i said, most top teams are slumping which plays in NiPs hand to come back from their 6th or 7th spot in the world. I dont see them being ahead of these 3 teams in the long run by any chance. /edit: Let me rephrase that, im not sure about VP, but thats more VPs fault than NiPs. VP doesnt seem to find their old groove which is needed to get back to old shape and nobody knows yet if they will ever find it again. But im hoping for it.
2016-03-25 18:35
NiP is no4, 1. Fnatic 2./3. LG/NaVi 4. NiP imo

maybe not even then both TSM (Astralis) and nV used to rape NiP in early 2015 (apart from Katowice 2015, where NiP won both bo3s against them) but then as the year progressed, NiP began to beat them and they did that more and more in later 2015, to the point where NiP is now the kryptonite of both teams it seems

nothing? ayy lmao typical swede
2016-03-25 21:57

The level of autism you posess exceeds my thinking
2016-03-25 23:16
typical cookiecutter comments everytime you use your keyboard.. have your own opinion or style.. dont just copy everyone else and be a jealous little shit... whats your team? I bet you lost your entire 10 dollar monthly allowance to them getting rekt by fnatic.. fag1
2016-03-25 23:26
I don't follow any team if you really wanna know and i'm not a gambler lol last time i betted was last year.. You're probably a sad guy without a life that bets on their favorite cheater team and thinks it's moral to call someone a 'sore little loser' or a 'fag'. Go eat a dick :)
2016-03-26 01:57
and now you are resorting to lies just to win an argument.. you have reached the bottom... dont be jealous at other people in life, it gets you nowhere
2016-03-26 12:56
Lies? Nothing of what I said is a lie. Why would I be jealous of a mentally disabled person?
2016-03-26 21:47
why is he mentally disabled? I doubt you can be one of the best in the world with that :) jealous little prick you are
2016-03-26 23:13
The fact you actually think i'm jealous of yourself only enhances to me the fact that you aren't too wise
2016-03-27 00:08
I meant you are jealous of flusha for doing well in life, while you are just a hltv hater ashamed of his flag
2016-03-27 00:12
hahaha I wouldn't wanna be a fat cheater lol I'm not ashamed of my flag, idk why but it doesn't appear
2016-03-27 00:20
so it magically doesent appear? you are jealous, flusha has a fucking easy life if you ask me, be good at video games and make tons of cash.. I bet that hurts for you :)
2016-03-27 14:39
"be good at video games" Well of course he is good, but apart from that he also cheated on multiple occasions.. It's dirty cash which I wouldn't want myself lol
2016-03-27 17:13
he never got caught so only haters thinks he cheats.. hes clean you cant cheat at majors
2016-03-27 17:23
oh shut the fuck up, they are no different than online or any other lan.
2016-03-27 17:33
you cant cheat at lan, the comps only have steam, and the admins check their computer.. and then they have somebody standing behind them watching the whole time... NT

you're a fucking moron if you really think there's no way to get cheats on a lan pc hahahaha.
2016-03-27 17:50
you are a fuckig jealous moron just like the loser about us haha conspiracy theorist pls explain how he's gotten away with cheating now for 10 years and never been caught... illumidiot confirmed
2016-03-27 17:52
hmm how was KQLY cheating at lans then? how was emilio? how about everyone else? you're telling me EVERYONE who was cheating in csgo pro scene is now caught BECAUSE SOME WERE? how fucking retarded can you possibly be to this the pro cs go scene is clean at any event hahahaha.... jesus people on here are so fucking stupid xDDD
2016-03-27 17:55
yes but they got caught idiot.. so tired of seing that cookiecutter comment about kqly all the time.. flusha has been playing for like 10 years and never been caught, and now the security is even tigher... you retards will keep calling him a cheater until he retires and he will keep winning and making more money then all of you combined :) meanwhile you are gonna end up broke in a mental institution because of your obsession with flusha hahaha
2016-03-27 17:58

maybe if he didnt donate, the 1 million could still be 500k, flsha is fucking visionary, he made the cs go grow up.

2016-03-26 01:08
>nip >contender vs fnatic
2016-03-26 01:09
NiP and LG put up the best matches vs fnatic. NaVi never wins against fnc, Astralis is another team that comes to mind and NV are slumping so can't really say much about them.
2016-03-26 01:37
nip had 1 decent bo1 and they're contenders??? by that logic i guess mousesports can go beat fnatic also also astralis are trash chokers and will never beat fnatic again
2016-03-26 01:39
I don't need to explain things you can see for yourself, just look at previous match ups between NiP and FNC. Also biggest contenders does not mean contenders, fnatic is clearly way ahead of any other team.
2016-03-26 01:47
Nip will bomb out early 100%. They're still very uncoordinated and overrated because of them ddosing every single team to win online games
2016-03-26 01:48
I'm not saying NiP will make it to fnatic, I'm just saying in a match vs fnatic they are historically one of the more successful teams, taking recent results into account slightly as well.

2016-03-25 20:40

2016-03-25 22:13
Flusha must be delusional. Placing NiP as a higher threat than Na'Vi is just ridiculous, looking at the 2016 stats with context. Add to that the ludicrous - the only way of describing it - comment that Splyce has *any* chance of beating Faze and going to the playoffs shows how detatched from reality he seems in this Interview.
2016-03-25 22:22
Na'Vi never beat fnatic in a bo1/3/5 since they added flamie. NiP beat them in a bo3 in fragbite masters 5 last time. Why is Na'Vi a bigger threat for fnatic than NiP?
2016-03-25 23:05
yup..navi vs fnatic 100% lost
2016-03-26 00:11
NiP beat them in a BO3 at Fragbite masters with Allu. Now they have added Pyth, not an upgrade, probably a downgrade. Add to that the fact that they now like to play Fnatic's style of loose individual play, and you can really see that bar a breakout performance by Pyth, or KennyS style carry by Forest, Fnatic have got a very solid matchup against NiP - pound for pound.
2016-03-26 09:56
Na'Vi is the better team overall, for sure. But NiP matches up well against fnatic, hence they are a bigger threat to them. And no, I'm not a 'NiP fangay', I actually think most people are a bit delusional when it comes to NiP. However, the aforementioned fact is certainly true.
2016-03-26 00:59
So stupid.. Teams like navi and astralis can never come close to besting fnatic even though they're higher ranked teams. It has to do with matchups.
2016-03-26 01:50
Yes, and right now Fnatic has got equally solid matchups against both Na'Vi and NiP, but for different reasons. So if he feels that the matchup against NiP is weaker, then fine. But here he seems to be implying that they are the biggest threat, which maybe in his head is true (Flusha being the IGL and so having to watch demos of NiP, try and outstrat THREAT), however from a subjective point of view you cannot realistically point out that NiP are the biggest threat to upset Fnatic and take the Major.
2016-03-26 10:07
It's NiP because of their history I think. I fnatic have respect to NiP as their rivals, and vice versa. They want to beat each other in a bloody brawl. If you watch their games it's not like the "chess CS", it's more like a bare fisted fight in the streets. That's why the matches are close. Edit: and against Navi, fnatic have so big confidence. Navi make so much effort in their complex strats and timings and map clearance, then Fnatic just takes 3v5 retake and Navi are tilted.
2016-03-26 13:56
I can see that yeah, Fnatic and NiP have always rivaled each other over who dominates the scene, and they both play a very similar loose style. And yes, Na'Vi are notoriously easy to tilt, meaning that Fnatic can psychologically dominate them.

Yeah, gotta favor fnatic against Na'Vi every time, but for sure Na'Vi could do it if fnatic start slipping up, with getting too greedy/soloing especially on ct side :()
2016-03-26 09:07
And fnatic have never been as good as they are now. Their favorable matchup against Na'Vi has also just kept on becoming more favorable recently. The only way for fnatic to lose is by playing a team theyre not 100% confident against. And the only teams they're not is NiP and to a degree LG and nV.
2016-03-26 10:42
