As the first day of the ESL Pro League Season 6 Finals is coming to an end, two teams managed to pick up 16-14 upsets: OpTic defeated SK and NRG took down NiP.

OpTic and SK met on Mirage, with the start of the game being a back and forth affair. OpTic started off with a pistol round win, but lost the follow-up, which was key for the Brazilians to take a 6-4 lead.

Adam "friberg" Friberg's two kills on force buy allowed OpTic to get to six round on the CT side, but that is where they were stopped as Ricardo "boltz" Prass picked up three in round number 15 to make the score 9-6.

OpTic's tactical duo managed to do enough to pick up a win over SK

With a pistol round win and an early economy reset going their way, the European mixture was off to a great start in the second half of Mirage and he lead was in OpTic's hands shortly. SK's second round win on the CT side coming as a result of Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo's triple with the AWP, but it was once again being followed with a hard reset, and OpTic went up to a 14-11 lead.

As Marcelo "coldzera" David and co. were mounting a comeback, bringing the score to 14-14 and the economy back in their favor, a B rush in which Óscar "mixwell" Cañellas and Kevin "HS" Tarn got the opening kills allowed OpTic to close out the game 16-14.

With Cvetelin "CeRq" Dimitrov leading the charge, NRG were off to a great start against NiP, picking up a 7-1 lead on the T side of Overpass. NiP was able to stabilize at the end of the half ended, with Richard "Xizt" Landström's triple in the 14th round playing a crucial part in their recovery.

After finishing the first half 9-6 down, NiP tied up the score by winning the Terrorist pistol and the following two, but Damian "daps" Steele's side was quick to take back the lead with the rifles coming into play. William "draken" Sundin and Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg were doing their best to keep NiP in the game, but the trio of Jacob "FugLy" Medina, CeRq and Allan "AnJ" Jensen managed to outperform them, earning a upset victory for NRG.

Still, he had ZERO impact on the B site. Which lost them the game. As you Taco defenders always say: "it's not about the frag". Isn't that right?

lets fucking go. wish we won against nip. rip 14-16. Optic shows up for misfits and nrg then should be locked in for playoffs. Could also win against north because they really havent shown up this tourney but i have a feeling that they will be alive tomorrow.

LOL If you want to keep sucking on the balls of the man that's dragging a wonderful team down, then please, be my guest. I'm a fan of great CS, which, in SK, exists on fallen, cold, fer and boltz. Taco defenders and their retarded arguments.
2017-12-06 07:42
I know taco isn't tje greatest fragger in the team but you're retarded to think that a team should always have 5 godlike players. Tell me one team with 5 insane players. Taco does his job just fine and you can see it clearly because they're winning tournaments. You're just an autistic kid on hltv riding on the taco hate train for no reason. He played horrible on iem. Get over it.

Yes. Letting North breeze past B site every single round yesterday was an example of doing his job just fine. You're right.

you dont even see what taco did and what he still doing, you can have your good times and your bad times but, wait, you dont play and taco does so You can say everything you want from your couch when Taco is playing like a professional in Odense

No. I don't hate anyone. Just giving my opinion, he lacks the confidence and the personality to be in SK. He's not bad, but he doesn't deserve SK. That's all.

Both don't have as much experience as taco. Steel is in liquid. And chello? Seriously? Has he even played in a t1 tournament before? And sk is fucking winning tournaments. Why would someone kick a player when they're successful. Are you fucking retarded?
