fnatic & dig to group D winners match

The first round of ELEAGUE group D matches is behind us, we saw fnatic edging out OpTic (19-17 on Cache) and dignitas taking down EnVyUs (16-12 on Coblestone) to move on to the winners match.

The Dennis "dennis" Edman-less fnatic had a strong start to their match against OpTic, stringing together the first five rounds on the Terrorist side of Cache. After OpTic's economy recovered from their risky early buys, the North American side managed to tie up the score before ending the half 8-7.


With dennis absent, KrimZ was the one to step up 

Coming into the second half, OpTic won the pistol, but were unable to build momentum as Simon "twist" Eliasson clutched the second round force-buy for his team. The round came down to a 1v1 between him and Oscar "mixwell" Cañellas, with the Spanish star-player having a rare off moment that allowed fnatic to bounce back and take the lead.

The Swedes were in control for the whole second half, but couldn't close it out in regulation. Tarik "tarik" Celik and co. took the lead in the added rounds and looked good to pull it back, but Freddy "KRIMZ" Johansson clutched a crucial 1v2 on the A site helping fnatic to close out the match 19-17.

In the second match of ELEAGUE Group D, Dignitas took on Envy on Cobblestone. The early part of the match went the way of the Danes—Ruben "RUBINO" Villarroel was leading the way for his team, harassing the B site defense of Envy.

7-1 down, Envy's comeback started with Kenny "kennyS" Schrub getting an opening kill with the AWP. We saw a small streak of rounds from the Frenchmen before Dignitas secured the last round of the half to make it 9-6.

RUBINO

RUBINO had another impressive Cobblestone performance

Envy were on the brink of tieing the match up in round 22, but despite their weak economy, RUBINO and Mathias "MSL" Lauridsen stopped the B site offensive with Mag-7's to make it 12-10.

Vincent "Happy" Schopenhauer's team pulled back the following round and broke the CT's economy, still, they weren't able to close it out as we saw Kristian "k0nfig" Wienecke and René "cajunb" Borg combining for four kills on a round turned the match in favor of the Danish team, who made it 16-12 in the end.

Grats fnatic and dignitas lets see who will go to playoffs. Great match by fnatic and OpTic but in the end fnatic won it, OpTic lost it on overtime because of unnecessary double awp setup anyway grats to fnatic. krimz finally looks like found himself after reuniting with olof, he was clearly player of the match but I wasn't expecting Jumpy to play this good to be honest, ofcourse he is not random silver you meet in matchmaking but he was able to keep up with fnatic and i think he was even doing better than some of his teammates. Can't say nV vs Dignitas was fun to watch at beginning since it was mostly one sided match and then I don't know what was Dignitas players thinking and doing suddenly it became 9-9, somehow Dignitas players wasn't able to kill nV guys who is having very low hp and that players start winning rounds like Happy spray down two people with 12hp behind smoke then SIXER gets 3kill with 6hp but in the end dignitas win the match. Surely nV's problem wasn't kio nor devil but Happy, yea he got lucky kills but he still lost many rounds to his team because of he is not playing with his teammates so unless nV "Happy" with results like 5th to 12th places there is no future for them.

that was a sick match between fnatic and optic. NAF & RUSH are insane individuals. nt tho :( hopefully eleague will start a circuit of tournaments in the near future to destroy the monopoly of evil ESL/turtle. these guys know their shit. (except for the analyst desk, which got more toxic with the addition of the bald old guy) second match had msl playing in it, therefore boycotted. LOL@kenny rage
