VP go 1-0 over fnatic at ESL One NY

Virtus.pro began their campaign in New York by defeating fnatic 16-6 on Cobblestone.

Virtus.pro and fnatic kicked off ESL One New York in their best-of-one group stage match on Cobblestone where the Polish team started on the CT-side.

The Poles stopped fnatic with ease in the pistol round and went on to win the anti-ecos without suffering much damage. fnatic managed to get themselves in a 2vs2 situation in the first weapon round but Janusz "Snax" Pogorzelski prevailed and won his team their fourth round.


The legend was on fire 

After the Swedish team lost another round they responded with five of their own, losing no more than two players in each round (5-5). The lopsided rounds kept coming as Virtus.pro went on a five-round streak to win the half 10-5 despite being on the slightly less favored CT-side.

The Polish team won the pistol and first weapon rounds in the second half as well, making the score 14-5. They closed out the match 16-6 and won their first match in New York.

I laugh at the dellusional fanboys who claim that the washed up players of their shitty old games are still amongst the best. Pathetic. Do you really think that "neo", or whatever his name was, would be able to keep up with today's standards? A top 1000 player today is 10 times what that has-been wished he could be. Olofmeister keeps leading the effort of redifining what Counter-Strike truly is. The best player to ever touch the game, his consistency and longevity far beyond the reach of your outdated idols. Fantastic display.
