G2 to playoffs after beating SK

G2 beat SK on Inferno, 16-11, to make it to the LANXESS Arena stage in Cologne.

The map started off with the CT side, SK, taking the pistol round as an opening frag by Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo followed up by doubles by Fernando "fer" Alvarenga and João "felps" Vasconcellos gave the Brazilians the round. The anti-eco went their way as well, as they cleaned the map without a single loss. On the first force buy by G2, though, the French side were able to get on the board.

G2 took the lead, 3-2, but a 2v1 clutch and defuse by FalleN in the sixth round gave his team the round, after which they would go and win several rounds in a row for a 7-3 lead thanks to a big triple by fer in the eighth round which put G2 in an eco. In the eleventh round, FalleN kept the wall up, as a close range triple with the AWP stopped the French team on their tracks.

shox & co. were able to edge out SK on the CT side

Despite trailing 3-8, G2 finally got a couple rounds on the board, after winning 2vs2 and 2vs3 after plants, and forcing SK on an eco of their own. After trailing 6-9, G2 won the second pistol round, and tied the match, 9-9, after winning the anti-ecos.

SK wasn’t ready to give the lead up quite yet, though, as they took the first gun round. G2 weren’t about to let SK run away, though, and late frags by Kenny "kennyS" Schrub and Nathan "NBK-" Schmitt, rotating from the A site to B in the twentieth round, stopped the Brazilians from planting the bomb, thus bringing it back to 10-10.

After trading rounds, it was finally G2 who were able to put up the wall, and take a few rounds in a row. SK called a timeout when down 11-14 to try and revert the situation, but G2 were finally able to close it out, 16-11, to clinch a spot in the playoffs.

Yo les noobs. There's a difference between a sniper playing for his teammates and the teammates playing for the sniper. I'm co-leading, organizing every defaults, our "bomb site taking", nades, etc .. I'm going first when it's tough eco/buy round, and I'm throwing the nades when we do specific tactics. In the pistol round I'm buying the smokes and flashes. Anyway life is tough sometimes but I'm getting paid very well. I don't care about having 30 frags, 1.50 rating, I don't care having fragmovie about me, I want to win. And you know what? I've been winning since 10 years with all of my teams. I'm not here because I'm shox' best friend. Shox got kicked a couple of times and I've always followed him coz' I like playing with him, we see the game the same way and we have the same work ethic. No disrespect, today we have the best team ever, IG / Outgame. Still a young team but proud of what we've done so far. So thanks you for thoses that are supporting me/us and the ignorant haters eat shit.

SK fanboy blaiming cheats when his team loses, that's usual
2017-07-06 17:55
Nah the usual is the hatred towards SK when they lose/win... And who would've thought, your a G2 supporter...
2017-07-06 17:58
I actually never hated on Brazilians. Brazilians are really chill and sympathic overall but your attitude here is ludicrous. I saw your comment in other threads and blaming cheats for every SK loss makes you look like a real fanboy.
2017-07-06 18:15
1- Not BR 2- Every tread was about the same thing, baiting, i did what? baited with the same trashy response... It's not like i really care, im here for the lol's and the hate against brazilians as you can see, proving the hypocritical response from this community =]
2017-07-06 18:20
oh alright then. If you're here for drama, then I should leave this thread. Have a nice day.

SK eventually can do it. They're probably top1 by now, even after their loss. Don't focus on 1 match Brazilians you'll qualify anyway next game, plus you've already got ECS and the major is the most important ^^

kappa or do you mean it serious. doesn't matter how shoxs frags. imo his aim is looking a bit weaker as we usually know from him, since he took this new G2 lineup^^. but still a amazing player!
