fnatic demolishes OpTic in NY
fnatic have defeated OpTic at ESL One New York 16-3 on Train, thus going 1-1 in the group stage, while OpTic are now down 0-2 and will be eliminated if they lose another match.
OpTic let Train go through, possibly feeling warmed up despite being handily defeated on the map by SK. That didn't seem like the case immediately, as fnatic went up 7-0 before Peter "stanislaw" Jarguz's team figured out how to take the A-site properly, taking two rounds in a row.
Simon "twist" Eliasson was doing all he could to prove himself this game, taking a bunch of important picks on the CT side with the AWP and he crucially saved this gun into the 10th round where the rest of his teammates only had pistols. The Swedes made it work, naturally, running all around the train carts and John "wenton" Eriksson stepped up massively with a quad kill.
twist was not looking for a prolonged battle
fnatic were just one step ahead the Green men's gameplan all the way, and they ended the half 13-2. Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer and Co. were looking to end it quickly with a pistol win on their T-side, but as OpTic had nothing to lose they chose a force buy into the 17th round which went their way.
twist went all out for being the man of the match in the following round, charging forward with a Tec-9 and destabilizing the North American defense with a triple kill and the Swedish side closed out the map 16-3.
