Renegades stun Virtus.pro; Cloud9 overrun B.O.O.T-d[S]

Renegades and Cloud9 are through to the decider stage at DreamHack Masters Malmo after defeating Virtus.pro and B.O.O.T-dreamScape, respectively.

With Astralis and Natus Vincere through to the winners' match, Group B continued with the best-of-one elimination encounter, featuring Virtus.pro and Renegades.

Led by Karlo "USTILO" Pivac, the Australian team jumped out to a 6-0 lead on the Terrorist side as Virtus.pro looked helpless to stop their opponents' swift attacks. With Jarosław "pashaBiceps" Jarząbkowski and Filip "NEO" Kubski nowhere to be seen, the Polish team switched to a more aggressive style, only to be stunned by Aaron "AZR" Ward in two rounds in a row.

Renegades kept on pushing and eventually brought the scoreline to 9-0, forcing Virtus.pro to call a tactical pause. A double AWP setup from the Poles failed to pay off as the Australians were gifted three easy kills in A, but Janusz "Snax" Pogorzelski stepped up in the following round to give his team something to work with.

Renegades were simply too strong for Virtus.pro

However, they were unable to capitalise on that round win as they were swept aside by Renegades' A split thanks to two entry frags from Noah "Nifty" Francis. With the economy control and the momentum on their side, the Australians closed out the half with a stunning 14-1 lead.

An A push in the pistol round still gave Virtus.pro fans some hope, but Renegades responded in the first full gun round to hit match point. The Polish team still won a couple of close rounds, but a 1v2 clutch from USTILO sealed their fate in the competition.

Meanwhile, Cloud9 and BOOT-d[S] faced each other in Group A's elimination match. A successful force-buy from the Asian team in the fifth round ruined what was an otherwise perfect first half from the North Americans, who cruised to a 13-2 lead on the CT side.

Now playing on the Terrorist side, Cloud9 wrapped things up quickly, winning three rounds without response to advance to the decider stage, in which they will meet the loser of the match between SK and North.

To be honest the end result would probably have been the same if Tyloo had played instead of Boot. Tyloo probably would have taken more than 4 rounds between the two matches though.

i don't disagree with you completely, but we should wait till the end of the year.
2017-08-30 20:21
like i said NEO must back to IGL and maybe then Snax wil be unleashed and capable to carry
2017-08-30 20:35
snax has been igling since IEM katowice and now maybe taz was the igl for this tournament. so normally neo didn't play as an igl for a while, so ffs they should make him to the igl again....
2017-08-30 20:44
Pls see PGL karkov VP come in 3-4rd but they very lucky + get out aim very hard by Immortal You can't depend on tactic in 2017. Even tier 3 can out aim you and win ez
2017-08-31 08:34
sorry but there is noway that a team that always could play on a high level till February 2017, to suck that badly afterwards. its not just about the aimbattles.

Tarik as the bottom fragger has more kills than any of the boot.ds players lmao. 32-4 what a rekt for poland. Tyloo could have done better.
2017-08-30 20:15
32-4? VP lost game no.1 with 4-16. VP lost game no.2 with 7-16. Final score is 11-32. Where did you get 4-32?
2017-08-30 20:39
Boot-ds from poland lost 16-2 to sk as well as to cloud 9. So thats 32-4.
2017-08-30 20:45
Nah, I think you mixed up things. Boot-DS aren't from Poland (you write name of countries with capital letter by the way). They are from Singapore (colours are the same, but the flag is different, so that's a second mistake). Another thing is: you can't lose by having MORE points. You lose by having LESS points. If victory criterion is MORE points, then you can't lose 16 to 2, so you either mixed winning sides, or mixed the results. Remember - details matter. That's why certain people are successful and make a lot of money and ignorants/lazies make little money. You won't get a lot of money for a bad job.
2017-08-30 20:50
Boot-ds from Singapore lost 2-16 to sk as well as to cloud 9. So thats 4-32. You happy now? Btw you're trying way too hard.

You could have just said thanks for telling me its Singapore I didnt see and accept it as a normal person. Instead you went apeshit because you felt threatened when someone corrected you. What do you think would work out better, given that you already have the apeshit scenario down there?
2017-08-31 01:08
He is a piece of shit. I dont regret insulting him so much. I genuinely hope he dies.

Fucking nigger hope you get hit by a truck.
2017-08-30 20:52
I see you ran out of maturity, but now you are simply toxic and hostile. Ok, let's see what admins say - I reported that comment. BS is BS, but that hateful crap is not fair.
2017-08-30 20:54
Stop replying to me. I dont want to see you pretending that you're more superior than me. Fuck off.
2017-08-30 20:56
I don't pretend. If you can't handle gentle and polite trolling, then I'm sorry, but you should try harder. If your type of trolling is accepted (shame it is) why can't mine be? I'm not insulting anyone, I'm not calling names, I'm not spreading hate. Too much of maturity? Of friendliness? Why are you raging? I'm too calm for you? How about you change your ways a bit? Being a a troll and hateful dick is ok I guess, but when someone approaches you in a different way you hide tail and run away spitting. Lame.
2017-08-30 21:00
Lmao you're being a more cancerous version of grammar nazi in the first place by correcting my reply eventhough that is nothing wrong with it as people can get what i was trying to imply. You obviously had no arguement to reply so you had to nitpick to beat around the bush and try to make me look bad. You're just budget jonty. Fuck off with that shit. You cant fucking read? I told you to fuck off.
2017-08-30 21:12
So I can't troll in a friendly way, but you can troll as an asshole? What kind of logic is that? Waht's wrong with good grammar in foreign language? Who is jonty? If you can troll people by calling Singapore another Poland, why can't I troll you by correcting you in a friendly way? I'm not insulting you, so why so much hate? Bro, you are the only one who can troll people here. The difference between us is: you can't handle being trolled and you rage and insult, whereas I take things with a smile on my face. I didn't try to make you look bad, if there is someone who did that it's you. You did that by: insulting another user who wasn't hostile to you. You can't handle trolling? Why I can and you can't? What kind of arugment would I have and what for? It's was a light trolling. Extactly the same you did. This is internet and this community is pretty toxic so don't expect NOT to be trolled. You can troll people and I can't? How so? Enlighten me. Please. I'm willing to learn new things every day. Just no "fuck off (and similar)" that won't teach anyone anything, but bad attitude.
2017-08-30 21:18
Omg there are so many retards calling singapore poland. Go troll them now and leave me alone please. I dont even want to read your crap at this point.
2017-08-30 21:21
You don't want to read. That's an excuse. Suddenly there are so many retards. I see. Funny, you got cornered and you don't need my crap. Pretty weak, but what can I do. Ok, go, but man up a bit.
2017-08-30 21:25
Excuse? What excuse? You can ignore my points and make new points to favour your arguement why cant i? I cant handle being trolled? Define troll please. At what point do you think i got trolled? If i got trolled why do you think i cant handle it? Please enlighten me. I am willing to learn your shitty way to troll.

Nah, just trolling. You know what people are: assholes, trolls, morons, faggots, bitches etc etc... or they are plain dumb and don't see the difference in how flags look - that's very possible.

Where are you now VP fanboys? Just accept that the major was a huge fluke and that they were lucky as fuck.
