SK defeat Cloud9 to win ESL One Cologne

SK Gaming have won ESL One Cologne 2017 after defeating Cloud9 on three maps.

The first map of the series, Cobblestone, began with a one-sided first half as SK Gaming cruised to a 10-2 lead even after losing the pistol round, with Marcelo "coldzera" David clutching a 1v3 situation with a CZ in the next round.

A triple kill from Tyler "Skadoodle" Latham then brought SK's winning streak to an end and set Cloud9 up to win the remaining rounds, but as the half came to an end all the talk was about coldzera, who was now on 20 frags.

The second half started with Cloud9 winning the pistol round and the subsequent anti-ecos, but they were unable to break through SK's defence when the Brazilians finally bought up.

With Cloud9 down 13-9, Jake "Stewie2K" Yip picked up an ace to give his team's fans some hope. However, SK were unwilling to let their lead slip, and picked up three rounds in a row to take the map, 16-9.

SK win ESL One Cologne title

Next up was Train, which saw Cloud9 take the pistol round thanks to three quick kills from Mike "shroud" Grzesiek following an A split. After losing the following round, SK hit back thanks to two long-range Desert Eagle kills from coldzera, and it led to a string of rounds from the Brazilians.

Down 4-3, Cloud9 were able to restore parity in the unlikeliest of rounds as Timothy "autimatic" Ta picked up three stunning Desert Eagle kills to help overturn a 2v5 situation. That was the start of a phenomenal run from the North Americans, who took a commanding 10-5 lead.

SK got off to a blazing fast start, winning the pistol round with an ace from Fernando "fer" Alvarenga. Even when Cloud9 finally got money to work with, they simply could not keep up with SK, who won ten rounds without response to reach map point.

With their backs against the wall, Cloud9 managed to pick up two rounds, but the finishing blow from SK came in the 28th round, when Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo found three opening kills to give his team their 16th round.

Cloud9 came close on Inferno but fell at the final hurdle

Map three, Inferno, began with Cloud9 getting out to a quick 9-1 lead despite losing the pistol round following a B push from SK. João "felps" Vasconcellos then stepped up and powered his team to win four of the remaining five rounds with a series of key individual actions.

SK got off to a dream start on the CT side, winning the first six rounds to take the lead for the first time on this map since the pistol round. Cloud9's offence then finally came to life as they took four rounds in a row to get on the brink of victory.

It looked like the map was all but over, but SK tightened up their defence and won the final five rounds en route to a 16-14 finish.

they had the lead in two maps, impressive T side on train and impressive CT side on inferno too, most people didn't even expect them to make out of groups and they made to the finals and had 2 close maps against SK, actually impressive by them.

2017-07-09 20:36
You ain't the champion of shit... XD A team of 5 players are the actual champions, you just tagged yourself along to feel like you are actually capable of something, but you aren't :/ Congrats to SK on going 3-0 in a best of 3 though. They keep redefining what is possible. Can't wait to see them face vs Faze and/or Astralis in the major, should be good matches.

TBH they had a pretty easy route to the final, atleast in comparison to SK. Beating NiP (Other Maps than Cache?) and NaVi who overperformed to get to the semis is not too impressive but definitely more than expected...

Compare NIP time to SK is just retatard. Same as compare to 58´s Brazil football team, they wasn't real players, some was constructors some was Cabinetmakers. You can put all this 87 wins earnings together and will be below than a single tournament from today. No one can argue if more money are involved more competitive it will be.

You're kidding right? Teams like Fnatic, Na'vi just to name a couple invented all the strats, smokes, nades were using today. CS Go is saturated and boring right now you never see anything new, just the same shit over and over and over, teams playing so much no time for actual practice even nervous the major is going to be shit cause their is no creativity in this game anymore. All these strats were seeing in 2017 came mostly from teams like Fnatic, Na'vi, VP etc all the boosts etc. 2014-2015 was the golden era of real CS Go, 2017 is the era of pug CS and no creativity.
2017-07-09 20:25
The 80 LAN win-streak was in fucking 2013-2014. I'm serious look at all the games played then and you'll see for yourself.

not anymore, SK is definitely the best team in csgo history now i'd say. or at least with a top 3 @ major they will be.
2017-07-09 19:56
Youd be mistaken, NiP is the best team in CS:GO history. Theres a difference between the world and history. No one will even get close to NiP. SK fangays are stupid.
2017-07-09 19:58
Not at all, NiP dominated in an era before CSGO was popular and the only two good teams were VeryGames and NiP (and Western Wolves in the end), but the 87-0 looks good on paper but in reality it's not as impressive as people make it out to be. Teams had barely even switched to CSGO back then, and NiP was the first team to take CSGO seriously, and therefore they had a huge lead compared to other teams just starting out. Even fnatic era > NiP era.
2017-07-09 20:08
Well no use arguing with you, you obviously are a bit too stubborn to see things logically. EU brains
2017-07-09 20:03
Okay.
2017-07-09 20:08
He is right... People act like NiP was years ahead... they just dominated so hard that people say it wasn't competitive lol... Fnatic then dominated after NiP for 2 years lol... SK have never dominated and only won 6 events lul
2017-07-09 20:22
You have NiP logo next to your name, your opinion is invalid. And no, he is not right. No one was playing CSGO for real the first year it was out because the game was a giant turd, it's easy to dominate a game which nobody is taking serious or really wants to play. They were probably also the only "real" salaried team. They started losing when people had actually caught up to them after a year at the end of 2012 where they lost to the russian VP. You seem to forget that they dominated 2012, or at least thats when they streak was happening, and almost all finals consisted of NiP vs VeryGames. It's really not that impressive. There were legit at best 3 good teams, which NiP was way ahead of anyways.
2017-07-09 20:30
All the teams took it seriously. 2013 was a competitive year and so was 2014. You have "<3 Coldzera" so don't pull that one either. Take Fnatic aswell. Dominated late 2014/15 and early 16. SK have won 6 events. Not much more to say here lol
2017-07-09 20:30
Just because I like one of their players doesn't mean that I like the team. SK dominated 2016, probably the most competetive year of all time and have won 2 majors back-to-back. And what are you talking about 6 events? We're not specifically talking 2017 here but the entirety of CSGO and their time under LG as well. If they win this major, like I said, and become the second team to have 3 majors, they will certainly be the best team in the history of CSGO. For how long though? I don't know. It's competetive nowadays. I'd say the only reason why they would be considered better than fnatic is because they dominated a more competetive era than fnatic did, and fnatics early major win isn't as impressive. To me, it's quite clear.
2017-07-09 20:40
You're dumb af. Being the best team in HISTORY equals factors as longevity, it doesnt matter fuck all, that their competition was worse, it has no basis for being a factor. What matters, is that they, as a unit, won, and dominated at the top of the scene, for an extended period of time, longer, than anyone else. Sure, its benefited by the earlier swap to the game and so forth, but that doesnt really matter. It's definetly harder to do now, but thats also why it shouldnt be a title taken away easily.
2017-07-09 21:01
NiP did indeed dominate longer, but they also dominated in an era that was A LOT less competetive compared to today or even late 2014-2015 when fnatic dominated. By saying that it doesn't matter what era they were dominant in and that it shouldn't be a deciding factor is what is dumb "af" - you're essentially saying that if you're the very best at something which only 20.000 people play for two years (yes, thats how many players played actively in 2013) is better than being dominant for one year in something which now 350.000 others play averagely, just because they were dominant for longer? Thats the dumbest shit I've heard. Ofcourse it is a factor, and actually a huge fucking one. The fuck. If SK becomes the second team to get 3 major titles, all of which were achieved during the most competetive years in CSGO (certainly a hell of a lot more than 2012-2013) - combined with all the other titles they have achieved under SK and LG since 2014~ theres no way that they shouldn't be considered the best team in CSGO history. Case closed, no point in arguing it because thats simply how it is.
2017-07-09 21:55
dude you stubborn af, NiP is light years ahead son
2017-07-10 03:00
Not in my opinion.

Did you say that 2016 was the most competitive era of csgo ever? Because that is very false. SK only started dominating when the 2 teams better than them had injuries to their best player. They also only won 3 large tournaments which makes it impossible to call it an era because there was like an 8 month gap between SK winning the major and SK winning their next tournament. They are a very good team but they have a ways to go in catching up to fnatic as the best team ever.
2017-07-10 00:56
If they win the next major like I said in #275, then in my opinion they should be considered the best. Simply because they've won three majors (like fnatic) but in recent years where the pro scene is much more competetive. Don't forget that fnatic's first major was in 2013 and the game had like 20.000~ players playing averagely. It has grown a lot since then.

Australia JonoMate 
That is true but they also won it over the clear best team at the time which was NiP so that counts for, imo, more than Columbus 2016 because of the injuries to guardian and olof. Let's also not forget that if majors were introduced any earlier then NiP would almost certainly be double major champions as well. SK are great and this major will solidify AT LEAST top 3 of all time. It's just very difficult to compare teams from different time periods.
2017-07-10 01:17
We will never really know. It would certainly be awesome to see NiP 13/14, fnatic 14/15 and SK 16/17 against eachother. But yes that is true, I also completely neglected the fact that both olof and guardian were injured at Columbus. I still do think that both fnatic and SK > NiP, but thats just my personal opinion and we could argue about that forever. :D

2017-07-09 20:03
As far as I remember, Astana Dragons weren't a particularly good team. It was a "superteam" assembled to beat NiP, but they never really did, did they? The Russian VP was the first team to do so. I remember Astana Dragons splitting up not long after it was assembled, but maybe I'm wrong.

+1 faze underperformed (ty allu). C9 were nervous plus bo5
2017-07-09 19:57
No chance C9 wins in a bo5. Their 3 best maps were picked and they won 0 sadly

It is not allowed to talk (or chat) during a technical pause as written in our rules. The admin caught it quickly and told the team to stop immediately. Due to the violation of the rules the team will get penalized which will lead to a prize money deduction. clips.twitch.tv/GlamorousFrigidTriangleS.. the esl guy that said that: reddit.com/r/GlobalOffensive/comments/6m..

GGWP, congrats to SK, also while C9 got 3-0'd, they did put up a fight more than most expected. PGL Krakow will be insane, probably the most competitive major in CSGO history so far. Hope SK, FaZe, Astralis & G2 are all on point so we end up with some fierce competition and great matches. Also hope VP can bounce back, they are probably in their biggest slump of their careers, but it's a major and it's on polish soil, so you can never count them out.

A wise fan of both sports and esports once said "if you're a fan of the professional level of a sport/esport but not a fan of any team (in this case being either a fan of SK or C9, or any team within the top 30 of HLTV's current rankings), then you wont receive any trash talk/hate from any party (being the fanbases of any team), and you won't feel as too overjoyed with a team winning or feel as too saddened with a team losing because you support neither team in a game in which both are playing against each other"

They are being consistently challenged by the other teams in the TOP 4, being honest. Even if they are always coming on top in the end, if they were beaten by Astralis, FaZe or G2 it wouldn't be an upset at all.

Good attempt by C9, but they made too many mistakes to be able to beat the best team in the world in a bo5

i hate choke teams, cloud9 probably could've put a fight into 4 map but they choked hard on train and inferno. SK anyways would win this series.

Good match, but Cloud9 could have and should have done more. For me SK - Faze was the real final

SK has not 80 consecutive LAN victories, but is the best team in 2017 when the scenario is the most competitive ever. And for me the present is the most important than glories from the past. Three in row and the Major is ours. You are free to cry. #RUNSKG #WALLEN #COLDZILLA #FERMONSTER #VACO #FELPERA
