Cloud9 send Na`Vi packing at ESL One NY

MIRAA
September 16th, 2017 01:06

Cloud9 are through to the semi-finals at ESL One New York after defeating Natus Vincere on two maps.

The first map of the series was Mirage, Cloud9's pick, but it was Na`Vi who drew first blood after retaking the B site with three quick kills from Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko. The Ukrainian team were then caught off-guard by Cloud9's Desert Eagles, with the North Americans taking that chance to build a solid 4-1 lead.

Cloud9's players then perhaps got a bit too greedy as they were bested in an anti-eco round. That round sparked a great run from Na`Vi, who won five rounds in a row, but Cloud9 fought back and secured a narrow 8-7 lead with a 1v2 clutch from Tyler "Skadoodle" Latham in the 15th round.

Now playing on the CT side, the North Americans further added to their lead by taking the pistol round. A successful Desert Eagle eco put Na`Vi back in the game and powered them to retake the lead. It looked like the game would go down to the wire, but Cloud9 were simply dominant after getting their economy in order, winning seven rounds without response to take the map, 16-10.

Cloud9 beat Na`Vi in convincing fashion

Carrying their momentum into Train, Cloud9 won the pistol round as CT and the subsequent anti-ecos to secure a 3-0 lead. Na`Vi then fought back with an inner site push, which marked the start of a dominant period for the Ukrainian team, who won seven of the next eight rounds.

After calling a tactical pause, the North Americans regained composure and started winning rounds again, with Jake "Stewie2K" Yip keeping the deficit to a minimum by coming out on top of a 1v1 situation in the final round with just 1hp.

Now playing on the Terrorist side, Cloud9 won the pistol round to equalize the score at 8-8, but they could not follow it up as Na`Vi hit back on eco. The North Americans did not let that put them off their game, however, and shut Na`Vi down in the gun rounds, only losing conceding one round against a full save before locking down the map.

If this is what helps you sleep that's fine, so continue reading if you want to hear the truth. Ever heard of "not trying"? It's what teams do when they think they have an easy game to win, and then they choke. Hey, I was new to esports once too, so I won't be TOO mean. G2 only loses to Na'Vi, pretty much every other team is a win for G2.

You sound like a whiny little ass kid. Navi tried to win. How do u go to a LAN tournament with that kind of mentality. Ohh that's right u DONT. You play to WIN! Period. Just stfu and enjoy C9 victory they just 2-0'd a top team
2017-09-16 02:03
Never seen a shit mentality in any team? Hey I was new to esports once too, so I won't go in with this one. Na'Vi is a washed up shit team, C9 is a strong team with young, talented, motivated to win teams.

Nobody is new to esports stop creating these false narratives to fit ur argument. Navi tried to win. There's to much $$$ to have this very unprofessional mentality. And if they did take a top 15 team for granted then they're dumbasses.
2017-09-16 02:12
Quit hiding from the truth. Ever heard of VP, the team with the worst mentality in the world? They lost the major in January by the closest margin ever, and now they've just given up. Same with EnVyUs 2016, they were tired of getting rekt so they didn't bother improving.

Just cause teams get frustrated or play poorly doesn't = gave up. Come on now, how old are to think that's a valid answer. But look I'm done with this conversation so. Believe whatever bro.

I don't care much about the rankings since the concept of 'team invites' took place. Take ESL One as an example where G2, North & Gambit are not given the fair chance to collect points. Now, after taking up former ELEAGUE players, Liquid and Cloud9 have greatly improved their mechanics that enable them to compete with rich teams from Europe. This is probably the beginning of a new era where NA is starting to take over the reign that used to be dominated by Europe teams. And the new Optic lineup will provide American teams a better exposure on how a Europe team runs their business.

Way too easy for SK Gaming, the best team that has ever existed in all versions of Counter Strike. This record-breaking machine, also known as "team", consists of: Gabriel Toledo - Fallen: The best sniper and In-Game Leader that ever existed in this game that people call Counter Strike. Fallen is a beast. When the enemies press TAB and see his name on the other team, they instantly choke and lose all their composure, hence losing the match, just ask Team Liquid and they will tell you all about this. Fernando Alvarenga - Fer: The best player of 2017 so far. His play style is so good that the enemies can't even see where he is on the map. If you think Fer is in one place and you go and check that place you'll find out that he's not there and is actually behind you and by this time you have already been knifed and humiliated by the best lurker that ever played this game. Enemies choke just by seeing his model in-game, just ask TaZ and he will tell you more about it. João Vasconcelos - Felps: The Brazilian revelation who is following in the footsteps of Fer, and after Fer gets #1 in HLTV Top 20 players of 2017, Felps will get #1 in 2018's TOP 20. Just like Fer, Felps is a beast, no one can beat him in a 1v1, his aim is just too good for anybody to ever kill him when facing each other. His play style is the most aggressive I've ever seen, even more than Fer's, and that's what makes him so good. Marcelo David - Coldzera: Also known as GODZERA he is without a doubt the best player that ever played this game. Fallen is the best sniper and IGL, but Coldzera... Oh Coldzera, what can I even say about this man? He's like the Messi and CR7 of CS:GO, he's not from this planet. His aim is always on point, his game sense is impecable, he is also the smartest player that ever existed and the most humble one also, because a player of his skill level you'd think that he'd play as the team star or IGL, but no, he plays a support. But Cold (or GOD) can play any role and he'll still be better than 100% of the players. You know why? Because Coldzera has magic! Good players win titles, amazing players break records, Coldzera breaks the rules! You can stay with your stats that I'll stay with the magic! You prefer the stats, I prefer tha magic, I prefer COLDZERA! Epitácio de Melo - TACO: You might get fooled by his stats not being so good as his other 4 teammates, but just watch any SK match and you will see why TACO is the best entry fragger in the world and best solo B player ever. He's so versatile, you can give him any weapon, even an AWP, and put him alone in any B bombsite of any map and he'll humiliate all the players of the other team by his amazing skill and outstanding positioning as well as his out-of-this-world game sense. He's one of the smartest players that ever played this game and you know that. As a Terrorist just put him in front of the line and he'll win dominate the bombsite all by himself, and even die so that his team can plant the bomb! Tell me if this isn't the best thing a player could do? Give his life and give up having good stats so that his team can succeed? I can't hold back the tears anymore, damn my keyboard is all wet now... I'll have to stop here. TACO <3 And this is why this is an easy match for the best team that ever existed.
