fnatic to ELEAGUE semis over EnVyUs
fnatic are the first semi-finalists of ELEAGUE following a 2-0 victory versus EnVyUs in the first quarter-final (Cobblestone 16-13, Dust2 16-7).
The first ELEAGUE quarter-final featuring fnatic and Envy started off on Cobblestone (nV's pick), where the Swedes got off to a 3-0 start with a split A on the pistol. Envy then shut down platform only to get reset in the following round by Freddy "KRIMZ" Johansson, but an eco victory meant they'd even it out at 4-4.
The Swedes extended their lead to 12-6 with another pistol round win, but the match wasn't nearly over as Dan "apEX" Madesclaire started putting in work himself, getting double-entries from dropzone twice in a row, helping the Frenchmen claw back to 12-11.
KRIMZ's clutch play gave fnatic several important rounds on Cobble
That's when fnatic put a foot down, won a 2v2 afterplant situation and got two rounds in a row. Kenny "kennyS" Schrub and Timothée "DEVIL" Démolon then overturned a 2v4 and reached 13 rounds, but it was all she wrote as fnatic won map one at 16-13.
The beginning of Dust2 saw kennyS winning a 1v2 clutch as CT in the pistol round, but his team got picked off one by one in the following anti-forcebuy. When the Swedes got through the following two rounds versus low buys, Envy took over and got six rounds in a row, often thanks to more of kennyS's consistent play.
From there on however it was all fnatic in the half, as they got a streak of five rounds to come out on top of the half at 8-7. Jesper "JW" Wecksell then chimed in with four incredible headshots in the second pistol, as his team got off to the better start once again.
