G2 survive French derby

G2 survived the French derby with EnVyUs after a 16-12 win on Dust2 at the ELEAGUE Major Main Qualifier.

G2 were in the driving seat at the beginning of the French derby, leading 5-0 as Counter-Terrorists after winning the pistol round, the first gunround and three anti-ecos. 

Envy then survived a 4v4 retake on the A bombsite, and Dan "apEX" Madesclaire put up a quad-kill on the same site for three rounds in a row. Edouard "SmithZz" Dubourdeaux and Cédric "RpK" Guipouy then attempted to surprise their opponents by retaking the B bombsite in the last possible moment, which would have worked had RpK begun defusing one second sooner.


G2 bested EnVyUs in the second round

Before the end of the half, G2 only won a single round on the back of RpK's quad-kill during an eco round, as Envy went over to the defense with solid nine rounds.

G2 added another pistol round to their name and equalized the score at 9-9, but Vincent "Happy" Schopenhauer's side regained the lead with a great defense on B. Richard "shox" Papillon and company then took one back and barely survived the next round in which Kenny "kennyS" Schrub got four kills after only buying a Deagle, which sent G2 on a 13-11 scoreline.

Envy answered back with a strong hold, but losing the next round broke their economy, which G2 took advantage of to reach match point and close out the match with an A attack at 16-12.

Glad to see Smithzz performing after such a sh*itstorm about his performances
2016-12-16 21:06
He performed once. He has garbage performances more than frequently. Short memory my friend. Chocolate for brains

If you had actually been watching their matches lately you would've seen he's steadily improving again. He has already hit his lowest point a while ago. Mcdo for brains
2016-12-16 22:03
Sure, relative to how shitty he's been he has improved. There is still more data against him than for him.
