G2 to ECS grand final over fnatic

G2 advanced to the grand final at the ECS Season 1 Finals after beating fnatic 2-0 (16-2 on Overpass and 16-13 on Dust2).

fnatic were pitted against G2 in the first semi-final in London and the best-of-three series started out on Overpass with the Swedes on the CT-side. G2 secured the pistol round with Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom's triple kill and grabbed the anti-ecos without much trouble.

After the French team won the first weapon round, they extended their lead to 8-0. A triple kill by and a 1vs3 clutch by Jesper "JW" Wecksell gave fnatic their first round but they couldn't initiate a streak. G2 led 13-2 at halftime.


The first map was a walk in the park for G2 

ScreaM and Alexandre "bodyy" Pianaro each got double kills to pick up the pistol round of the second half and G2 finished it off afterward, winning it 16-2. This scoreline was the worst map performance of this fnatic five man lineup, with their second worst being 16-5.

Dust2 opened up with Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer and Robin "flusha" Rönnquist's back-to-back quad kills and their CT-sided team led 3-0 after winning another anti-eco. G2 got the first weapon round but fnatic replied and made it 8-1.


olofmeister came alive on Dust2 but it wasn't enough 

ScreaM's ace gifted his team their second round and more importantly, started a streak. G2 cut the deficit to three and trailed 6-9 at halftime.

Although ScreaM & co. won the pistol round in the second half, they lost the following one and fnatic took control once again, extending their lead to 12-7.

G2 managed to tie it at 12-12 as they won five rounds in a row and then took the lead with a successful retake. G2 made it 14-12 after winning a 5vs3 and went on to win the match 16-13, advancing to the grand final.

To be honest since the joined them he dropped really hard in terms of skill. He was way more effective with G2 (FaZe now). When they fell short against EnVyUs at the major (Cluj) he was insane and he was always good even before.
2016-06-26 14:52
nah, dennis perfomed godly for fnatic, this was probably one of his worst games for the team.

I didn't watch too much of SmithZz in 2014 but he was on the top 20 list in 2013 and not on it in 2014. Jesus Christ, if shox, ScreaM, RpK and SmithZz stay in VG mode consistently though, top 1 inc
2016-06-26 15:06
he was best in LDLC/nV imo really solid rifler and better awp

fnatic only gained 1 more round in total vs G2 than NiP did and NiP are slumping really badly right now...
2016-06-26 14:59
Why the fuck does nobody ban Dust 2 against G2? And Overpass is Fnatics worst map
2016-06-26 15:00
Overpass is G2's 2nd ban after Mirage. And mouz beat G2 16-1 on dd2 a week ago, but I agree; G2 is probably one of the best teams on dd2. But their map pool is looking strong af now, they can essentially play every map except mirage, and cobble is not too stronk
2016-06-26 15:13
That is true but I would prefer to play G2 on Cache or Train instead of Dust 2.
2016-06-26 15:31
Mby. But G2's record on cache these last months is like 9-1 or something crazy like that. As a fan of G2 tho I had no idea they had such a strong overpass:o
2016-06-26 15:33
Overpass is a Map that they learned from ex6tenz alot. I mean beating LG on OVERPASS isn't bad. For me they are much better on OP than on Train or Cobble tbh.
2016-06-26 15:34
Ye iknow ex6 loved it but i figured they moved away from it when he got kicked. They havent played it for so long and suddenly BANG 16-2 fnatic
2016-06-26 15:37
They have beaten Dignitas and LG 16-10 on this Map 1 month ago. But I'd understand your argument :-)
