fnatic to ELEAGUE final over Na`Vi

fnatic are the first grand finalists of ELEAGUE Season 1 following a two-map affair with Natus Vincere (2-0; Cobblestone 16-4, Train 16-14).

fnatic chose Cobblestone as the first map of ELEAGUE's first semi-final featuring the Swedes and Natus Vincere, and for good reasons. Being on the less favored side, fnatic sustained a pistol round loss 

fnatic chose Cobblestone as the first map of ELEAGUE's first semi-final featuring the Swedes and Natus Vincere, and for good reasons. Being on the less favored side, fnatic sustained a pistol round loss but they started blowing their opponents out of the water time and time again, including unfavorable situations such as a 2v3 retake on B.

Everyone from the world's number two team as per our Team Ranking chimed in on their way to a 10-3 lead, at which point Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer stepped out from the crowd and won a 1v3 clutch.

Natus Vincere took the pistol round to their name again, but Jesper "JW" Wecksell's two entries at dropzone forced Denis "seized" Kostin to save a weapon. The starix-led team stared down the barrel when Robin "flusha" Rönnquist gave his team another 1v3 clutch as fnatic grabbed a 16-4 victory on map one.


fnatic kicked off the semi-final in dominating fashion

Dennis "dennis" Edman once again showed why he's called world's best pistoleer, picking up a triple in the pistol round to put his team up 3-0 as Terrorists on Train. Two rounds in a row went the other way before fnatic made it 6-2 with patient late-round decisions.

Na`Vi's economy was broken after a reset scenario kicked in, as dennis put in an all-important double to tip the scales in the Swedes' favor. At 9-3 the Ukraine-based squad picked up two AWPs and an auto-sniper, at which point they picked up all of the remaining rounds in the half.

fnatic put in another pistol round triumph to distance themselves further, while olofmeister's double pushed the scoreline to 12-6. Na`Vi decided to go for a low buy afterwards and Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács found three headshots with the Deagle to put fnatic in a forcebuy scenario in turn. 

At 12-9 dennis went on to continue with his great performance, finding a big triple for two rounds in a row. The story wasn't over just yet however, Natus Vincere fought back and forced their opposition on an eco twice, evening map two at 14-14. The comeback was denied in the end though, as fnatic marched on to the final at 16-14.

Ofc it's fair, it was a major semi final. Anyway, all SK players are hungry to face fnatic. FalleN said that there is no other team atm he wants to play against more than fnatic.

yeah, lest wait for a semifinal/final between SK and fnatic and then we can judge I want to feel in with this, swedish language as its best: youtube.com/watch?v=1IPW-C9HLpg ust idag är jag stark, just idag mår jag bra jag förs framåt av kraftiga vindar Just idag är jag stark, just idag mår jag bra jag har tron på mig själv på min sida Jag har väntat så länge på just denna dag det är skönt att den äntligen kommer väntat så länge på just denna dag den ger l___ när den kommer Jag ser måsarnas flykt, jag ser solglimtens dans jag ser framåt mot härligs tider jag ser kvinnornas ben, jag ser ögonens glans jag har tron på mig själv på min sida Jag har väntat så länge på just denna dag det är skönt att den äntligen kommer väntat så länge på just denna dag den ger l___ när den kommer

They just did? Fnatic has slowly gotten back to their level now, and regardless of how bad they have played, I don't think they would lose to SK regardless... Fnatic is just extra strong against Na'Vi and SK in particular.

I checked Na'Vis stats and then I cried. On train it looks like only Guardian is playing in his team. Maybe Edward tried to do something lately, but it was not enough. But to be honest Fnatic well deserved to be in final. Na'Vi don't know play against them.
