G2 defeat fnatic in ELEAGUE Major

G2 defeated fnatic 16-10 on Cache in the second match at the ELEAGUE Major.

Cache was the map for the second match at the ELEAGUE Major and Richard "shox" Papillon's quad-kill and 1vs2 clutch gave the round to the CT-sided G2. Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer replied with a triple kill and fnatic tied the game at 1-1.

Cédric "RpK" Guipouy stopped fnatic's A-site rush with three Five-Seven kills, forcing fnatic to eco in the next round. After they lost the eco round, fnatic got opening kills on Mid and B to make it 2-3. Double-kill by Edouard "SmithZz" Dubourdeaux on the B-site was enough for a G2 retake (2-4).


RpK stepped up on the T-side

The back-and-forth match continued with Freddy "KRIMZ" Johansson's 1vs2 clutch and fnatic tied it at 4-4 after winning the anti-eco. Simon "twist" Eliasson won a post-plant 1vs1 to make it 7-5 in his team's favor but G2 won the following round with pistols. Dennis "dennis" Edman and olofmeister won a 2vs4 in the fourteenth round and fnatic led 9-6 halftime after KRIMZ's 1vs2.

G2 managed to win the second half pistol round and tied the game 9-9 following their anti-eco round wins. olofmeister boosted the fnatic defense in the fourth round of the half by getting two opening kills and the Swedes won the round.

The Frenchmen took the lead after RpK's triple kill and they went on to win the match 16-10.

Well this match felt like watching scrim more than major, both teams having shuffle rumours "per sources :D" and players were playing like they know shuffle going to happen. No offense, I hope both will be eliminated from tournament.

a short video where players talked about the match and he said something like: We will win because they have 2 players ( refering to shox and scream ) and we have all 5, meaning rest of g2 is shit xd
2017-01-22 20:50
LUL xD
2017-01-22 21:25
G2 had some nutty fucking plays. There t side pistol round was crazy.
2017-01-22 18:31
Yeah, but then the 1taps after the pistols. 2 Op
2017-01-22 18:38
Since I saw that twist interview saying they didnt practice as a team (only playing individually) I knew for sure G2 was going to win

We'll see after the Major. It's painful to watch how Shox wins 1vs2 with 8HP (because they have bot twist and bot disco doplan in team)
2017-01-22 20:47

You know, it got leaked last year that the "shit talking" is scripted, and they're told by tournament organizers to do so?
2017-01-22 18:54
it was 16-0 in the title for a minute :D and no comments about 16-0 was suspicious
2017-01-22 18:49
