G2 lock Major spot over Immortals

G2 have advanced to the ELEAGUE Major after clawing back from a 10-14 deficit to defeat Immortals 19-17 on Cache.

G2 kicked off their last match at the qualifier with a successful four-man attack towards A from squeaky, getting up to 3-0 after Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom saved a dangerous 2v4 situation following Immortals' aggression in A main.

The Frenchmen's fake in the first gunround backfired, as they got picked off one by one, and two quad-kills from Lucas "LUCAS1" Teles gave the Brazilians their first lead in the match at 4-3.

G2 equalized the score with a forcebuy victory on the back of ScreaM's triple, although Immortals quickly got back on their feet, winning all of the remaining rounds with a few more impactful plays from LUCAS1.


clutches from bodyy and ScreaM helped G2 climb back from 10-14

Edouard "SmithZz" Dubourdeaux's three kills in the second pistol allowed G2 to begin clawing back. With the first two gunrounds also going their way, they lowered the deficit to 10-11, but Henrique "HEN1" Teles's fantastic 1v2 tipped the scales in Immortals' favor.

The Brazilian side needed two more gunrounds to break G2's economy, but they then dropped the anti-eco due to several exchanges at the start of the round and ScreaM's one-tap in a 1v1 clutch.

Another clutch went G2's way as Alexandre "bodyy" Pianaro won a hard 1v2 on low HP, which turned the economy against ImmortalsCédric "RpK" Guipouy's triple in the next gunround made the score 15-14 after another eco, but doubles from Ricardo "boltz" Prass and João "felps" Vasconcellos sent the match to overtime.

Two big rounds from ScreaM helped G2 secure a three-round half as CT before Immortals got two of their own after switching sides, one of which was thanks to a fantastic quad-kill from HEN1 on B. However, G2 topped a 2v2 situation on A thanks to bodyy's crucial kill and secured the Major spot at 19-17.

2016-12-19 01:00
Remember that these groups will be fucked because F3, Gambit, Na'Vi and Liquid are legends xD The group seeding will be fucked because of that. G2 could get a group like this: Liquid Flipsid3 Mousesports G2 But I guess NV will get that ez group instead
2016-12-19 01:15
the problem has been that low team beat them in bo1 groupstages and this qualifier was basically more of the same. (playing down to competition, starting out flat)
2016-12-19 01:26

SMITHZZ almost lost them the game OK he's maybe useful as a team player but he really needs to work on his aim and decision making under pressure. In a 1v1 duel with equal information he literally always loses. In a clutch you just know it's over. He should practice
2016-12-19 01:32
He's not useful at all as a teamplayer besides smokes..Everything else -> he's absolutely dogshit at. How many times I've seen him mostly/bodyy/rpk failing pop flashes (to flash mostly scream in) - failing so hard not blinding any enemy..
2016-12-19 01:43
If G2 wants someone to kiss their ass, then hire a motivational speaker. Smithzz's only role is an being an AWPER and get picks, and honestly some of his teammates are better with the awp and the rifles than he is.
