I've been a nip fan since I started playing cs, but I'm hoping for a good and exciting game. Cool to see a former nip player playing against them too.

Red Reserve bow down to Hampus... Would not have won this series without him. Amazing play all-round by Red Reserve, phenomenal comeback on mirage also to close out Overtime. Was actually an amazing Semi-Finals to watch. Let's hope the Grand-Finals are just as good. :D

red reserve playstile looks very noob, don't know how they manage to make to the final
2017-07-15 23:21
they're not a strat-heavy team, they rely more on teamwork, individual skill and solid but basic executes. it works because they can out-skill teams like NRG, CLG and Heroic player-to-player, but it might look "puggish" to the untrained eye
