BIG edge out SK; secure playoff spot

BIG went 3-0 in the PGL Major Krakow group stage by picking up wins against three teams ranked in the top 5: FaZe, Cloud9 and now SK. With that, the German organization has earned a playoff spot in their first Major apperance.

With a pistol round and the following rounds BIG set themselves up for a good start on the Terrorist side of Inferno, but rounds went the way of SK when the guns rolled in, with the strong A site hold earning the Brazilians mutliple rounds.

Wrapping B through CT earned BIG another Terrorist round, but no momentum could be built as Marcelo "coldzera" David locked down the Germans arch play on his own, acing his opposition with the AWP. Fatih "gob b" Dayik wasn't able to clutch a 1v2 in round 13 and SK closed out the half 10-5 up.

gob b and co. surprised many by going 3-0 at the Major

BIG picked up the second pistol as well and managed to avoid an anti-eco blunder in the second round of the half Johannes "nex" Maget and gob b managed a 2v4 retake of the B site. The gun rounds then went the way of the German side and they managed to shortly take the lead, but an A push in which Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo picked up three kills with the AK47 got SK their first T side round.

The following round was crucial, and it once again finished up on the A site, as the trades on the entry lead to FalleN and Johannes "tabseN" Wodarz being in a 1v1 situation. The clutch was resolved by the German player, but there was no followup as a B stack didn't work out for his side in round 24.

From 14-12 down, BIG managed to tie the game at 14-14 with lock down holds, and they fended off the B rush to get to match point as well. In the last round, SK took control of mid, but BIG shut them down on the arch wrap to win the game 16-14, go 3-0 in the groups and secure a playoffs spot.

Nice job from BIG to upset SK Gaming, the Brazilian favorites of the major in this third Swiss Round. Nobody would've expected BIG to perform this well. Making the playoffs with a clean 3-0 record, defeating FaZe Clan, Cloud9, and SK Gaming is a huge feat, especially for the German underdog team. This match was very close, as it came down to the 30th round in order to decide a victor. Congratulations to BIG, the second team to earn a playoffs spot at PGL Major Krakow 2017.

teams agreed on not abusing it. peeking before retreating is not abusive. peeking then prefiring is. the nade is routine there when you know lots are coming. you'd know not just by peeking but also footsteps casualties communications etc. nade doesnt just cause damage but also slows the enemies. in all, not abusive.

The problem is that he did it with the bug, which they agreed not to use. I'm not saying that that was the reason SK lost, but it was a douchebag move by legija

Actually, you can't really control muscle memory, unless you purposely force it down, in which case stress starts to take its toll, and you'll just end up forgetting for a second or two. It's like asking someone who's been crouching when spraying to stop doing it. You can't force him to stop within 1 day - you need to let him get used to spraying without crouching, and sometimes unbind his crouch key.

2017-07-19 06:15
You are not a child but you are complaining on one jump ? Please stfu sk lost fair and square they had a lead but didn't win in the end just know Big beat 3 top 5 teams so even without that bug maybe it whouldve been overtime and they whould start on ct (Big) and no offense but gob b in my opinion is the best igl so they whould get that 1 round on t side.
2017-07-19 06:35
I know that big is a good team, that's why i was supporting them until the minor. They could won without this bug. But, when they created that move, they knew it was a bug for sure and start to use, it's something that, to my mind, is against of the ethic of an e-sport. After they have abused of it, everybody entered in an agreement that it was an illegal movement and they do this in an important round like that? I never like this type of shit. I got angry not because it was against sk, but rather because they had no character
2017-07-19 06:50
You no longer Support them because they beat immortals at the Minor!
2017-07-19 09:03
Of course not. The problem was that they used this bug to win immortals. I like almost every teams, except north
2017-07-19 14:47
Listen to me PGL said its allowed and big been using this since they played this map and that match was so nerve wrecking for guys you expect after a habit of junping above that wall every single te since they found that bug is bad ? They only did once because its a habit did they get punished for it ? No that means there was nothing wrong with it and you are overreacting

I wouldnt be surprised either if SK win this tournament. Nobody expects BIG to actually win the Major. But getting through Groupstage 3-0 against Faze, C9 and SK is a win for itself.

Of course it is, and they deserved 3-0 against big teams. They were playing like they normally do, regardless the opponent.

NiP on cache, BIG on inferno. I can't understand those teams' obstinacy - why to still not ban it when everybody saw them being strong on it? Btw, another easy major for SK. FaZe are out, Astralis are not strong enough, the others are even weaker than that. No competition at all. Don't even talk about Gambit, they won 3 bo1 and nothing more. And I doubt BIG can play anything else but inferno. But gratz to them anyway.

Not enough to be within the highest tier. In bo1 may be, but look whom they defeated - mousesports (T2), G2 (T1 in the near past but currently struggling much), VP (I'd say higher T2), i.e. 3 T2 teams. It's good for them to go 3-0, but for now they don't deserve any hype. Might be I'm underrating them, and I will be glad to get proven wrong, but for now I'm not proven wrong, so wait and see ;-)

Gambit won 3 bo1's with surprising performance on 3 different maps, their map pool is strong enough to beat SK if they find the right way. Astralis only lost 1 map, and they are much stronger in bo3's. Can't say anything about BIG, cuz they only played 1 map. IMT with kng can win against SK. VP are back, even though they lost to Gambit, they are still better than they were 1 month ago. And the amount of experience they have against SK is incredible. Maybe you will look further than just making conclusions after 1 map? SK aren't that unbeatable, as you could see from this match up.
2017-07-18 23:47
ye astralis didnt look that convincing in the last major's group stages either. i think they'll surprise in playoffs.

2017-07-19 00:39
Cuz they're not good enough at this tournament?..
2017-07-19 09:16
if u name big and immortals and vp in that 'as a potentional winnner against sk'' then g2 is up there with astralis and gambit are toe to toe teams against sk, trust me, g2 will show up in play offs, they just have to get there
2017-07-19 11:09
hopefully you're right, but i doubt so...
2017-07-19 11:09
cuz im going to road trip with my friends in friday, i dont see them playing in play offs so i cant judge later, im back for finals so if they get there then i can see but they just have to survive groups nightmare

Match was decided basicaly by a single round. If you think this had no impact on the match result...
2017-07-19 01:17
So if valve bans bunnyhopping tomorrow, you expect everyone to not use it? I aren't think that. So what that Legija made a mistake? What he should've done? Be like "umm, noone there"? You said that 1 round decided it? Cmn, its SK, they should've stomp BIG, but they didn't. So i say BIG deserved it.

Stupid veto from SK to leave Inferno in the pool. Also, SKs t side hasn't been impressive in any of their games. But it was a great performance from BIG. And they didn't use the bug so no excuses.
2017-07-18 23:36

Did you see the prize pool for Dota 2 International 2017? Valve are making much more money on Dota 2 than CSGO. All these problems in PGL, they don't give a fuck. Dota 2 is a much more appealing game to support (which they do LOL) In CSGO majors last place gets pathetic 8k, but in International 2016 last place got 100k

not true at all that was SK fault losing last 5 rounds, they looked so lost, as bad as playing T side against PENTA in the first day youtu.be/was9GbbRC2A?t=59m47s Round 27, gobb kill fer & taco and nobody trade the kill, thats not a normal mistake from sk youtu.be/was9GbbRC2A?t=1h3m52s Round: 28: 4 vs 4, fer didnt check pit and got killed by nex, nex kill felps too still nobody trades the kill, cold died and taco too youtu.be/was9GbbRC2A?t=1h5m Round 29: Eco/small force round 2 vs 2 still lost the round youtu.be/was9GbbRC2A?t=1h7m13s Round 30: FalleN & TACO run into a molly and tabseN kill them nobody trades the kills again, fer died, felps kill one in B then died by tabseN, cold got killed by tabseN, game over see? how can you say big missed some crucial shots? when they hit everything due to SK mistakes by not trading kills and rush apps and run into a molly in last round? just wanted to show u why you are wrong :)
2017-07-19 11:21
I watched the game for example tabsen missed a double kill which gave easy entry for sk and that ace from cold ? How Big couldnt kill him is a mystery to me and obviously Sk choked that happens when you play against gob b and most importantly sk didnt check corners or re frag that is just bad teamplay and its not missing shots so again read what i wrote and then try to correct me

totally deserved! as for the bug, teams have being using it, here or there. and apparently the agreement was about avoiding abusing it rather than not using it which means you don't exploit it for unfair frags which also means that teams will still be using it.
2017-07-19 00:23
they have only used it twice so not much of a BIG deal. don't know why people are crying about it, it was very good and fair game.
2017-07-19 09:03
Well played, BIG.

Do teams not pay attention? BAN Inferno on these guys. They are literally only good (if you want to call it that) on one map.

I used to respect fer, he used to be a cool guy within the scene. But seriously, fuck fer and felps for trying to stirr up drama and accusing BIG of not honoring the agreement between the teams. This team is attending their first major and have been an incredibly hardworking team that has gone through the entire major qualifier from all of the online qualifiers to get where they are today. This team is basically saying, HARD WORK PAYS OFF to all the kids out there dreaming of one day attending a major. On the other hand, you have professional players who are supposed to be rolemodels and are slamming these incredibly hardworking players for their success. Utterly atrocious. If you cant wish and cheer for BIGs success you should do yourself a favor and stop watching CS:GO. Teams used to do OP glitching on overpass for god knows how many tournaments in a row and fans enjoyed every second of it. But of course, those team who abused the bugs were fan favourites and top tier teams. If Valve cared they would have patched this prior to the major since the bug was used through all of the major qualifiers

Would be cool if BIG won the major
