G2 qualify for Major over FlipSid3

G2 have booked their spot at PGL Major Krakow after defeating FlipSid3 16-13 on Nuke.

Alexandre "bodyy" Pianaro paved the way for G2's qualification with a quad-kill to hand his team the Counter-Terrorist pistol. In the first gun round, bodyy added more three kills to his name, propelling the Frenchmen to take control of the match during these early stages. 

With Denis "electronic" Sharipov stepping up with four kills in a semi-buy, FlipSid3 were able to respond in the eighth round. The CIS-based team would acquit themselves really well for the rest of the half, winning five of the remaining seven rounds to reduce the gap to 6-9.

kennyS led the way for his team with 31 kills and a 99.4 ADR

Despite G2 finding the entry kill in the pistol round that followed, Georgi "WorldEdit" Yaskin and electronic secured the round with a triple and a double-kill, respectively. Following a single eco round, the French squad picked up their 10th round with a triple-kill from Nathan "NBK-" Schmitt.

From that point, Kenny "kennyS" Schrub and co. did not take their foot off the pedal and easily reached a 14-8 lead. FlipSid3 showed that they were not ready to throw in the towel and won five rounds in a row, but G2 made one final push to close out the map at 16-13 and secure a spot at the Major.

Not a great performance from G2 but they are through. Flipside should still qualify if they continue to play like they have.

Lost all respect for wayLander... he was raging and bottom fraging... classic mm player... when Anders and Semmler tell you to chill to fuck out because you are playing like garbage, then you should really think about your actions... Flipsid3 shoud drop him and pick up Mir... they could compete against T1 teams with him in the squad...

+ he is so bad

Markeloff's last play was so retarded it proves how low his IQ is. He's with a deagle, kills one and it becomes 1v1. KennyS (the scrub) knows it because he was in in the BP already. He knows he has a deagle. What does he do? He smokes exactly where there are two weapons. Markeloff sees it as an opportunity and goes through the smoke... KennyS start spraying and gets him. It was so fucking obvious. What a retard.
