EnVyUs secure IEM Oakland spot

EnVyUs defeated mousesports 2-0 (16-7 Inferno, 16-14 Train) in the final of the European IEM Oakland qualifier, securing a spot at the 12-team event.

The IEM Oakland closed qualifier for European teams started well for the French sides, as Envy was able to 2-0 fnatic and move on the semi-final, while LDLC pulled off an upset against Natus Vincere in three maps, winning on Mirage and Inferno after losing their map pick, Overpass, 16-14.

Vincent "Happy" Schopenhauer and co. then went on to beat North, with convincing wins on Nuke and Cobblestone—two maps North is usually strong on—getting Envy the 2-1 and a place in the finals. On the other side of the bracket, Kévin "Ex6TenZ" Droolans's side started off with 10 Terrorist rounds on Nuke, which allowed them to close out the first map against mousesports easily. LDLC wasn't able to do much on the next two, though, picking up a total of just seven rounds as Martin "STYKO" Styk and co. bounced back to win 2-1.

EnVyUs make it through the online qualifier once again

Envy and mousesports faced off in the final of the qualifier, with Inferno ending up as the first map. The French side lost the pistol round but slowly turned the situation around, winning the first gun round and resetting the economy of Chris "chrisJ" de Jong's team shortly after. A 9-6 lead after Envy' Terrorist half was extended with a CT pistol win and the map was ended shortly, with the score being 16-7 in favor of the Frenchmen.

mousesports had a dominant CT side on the second map, Train, with Robin "ropz" Kool being the key man in their 12-round half. After the switch, the European mixture was able to get the first two as well, but Alexandre "xms" Forté didn't allow them to close the map out quickly, getting three with the CZ-75 before closing out the round with a picked up AK47. That started Envy' comeback, which also featured a crazy 1v2 ninja defuse by Happy that made it 14-11.

The score was shortly tied at 14-14, with a forcebuy execute towards A shut-down and a B site retake in the last two rounds ensuring Envy win the series in two and attend IEM Oakland 2017 in November.

Online is part of the game. Ask yourself why Navi, Fnatic, Mouz and North have not been invited if you think they're so much better than NV
