December 9th, 2017 21:28

SK beat Misfits 2-0 (16-6 Cobblestone, 16-1 Overpass) in the semi-final of the ESL Pro League S6 Finals, setting up the dream grand final.

Sean "seang@res" Gares's team was off to a good start on their map pick, Cobblestone, picking up the Terrorist pistol and the following two rounds to go 3-0 up. However, SK bounced back by winning the first buy round and quickly tieing the score up at 3-3.

Fernando "fer" Alvarenga's early round aggression was punished in round seven, giving Misfits the man advantage, but Epitacio "TACO" de Melo and Ricardo "boltz" Prass combined beautifully in a drop retake that netted each of them a kill. TACO then added two more to his tally as the North American side tried to push long B, securing the round for his side.

SK cruised through the rest of the first half, with Misfits winning only two more rounds on their Terrorist side—both of which were force buys.

TACO destroyed Misfits on Cobblestone

After finishing the first half 10-5 down, François "AmaNEk" Delaunay and co. were able to give themselves a chance on the map by winning the CT pistol. Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo and co. replied with a successful force-buy and didn't take the foot off of the pedal from that point onwards, closing out Cobblestone 16-6. TACO was a big part of the victory, finishing the map with a 25-10 K-D.

On the second map, Overpass, SK was off to a very strong start. The Brazilian side picked Misfits apart with their slow and methodical Terrorist side, securing nine unanswered rounds. Shahzeb "ShahZaM" Khan had to get a two-for-one with the AWP and put his team into a 5v3 advantage for Misfits to finally get on the board, but with FalleN and boltz cleaning out the B site in the followup, Misfits' chances on Overpass diminished even further.

SK closed out the first half without dropping another round, with boltz and Marcelo "coldzera" David topping the scoreboard for their side. The 14-1 lead from the first half was extended to 15-1 for SK as they shut down Misfits' A long rush in the pistol round, and FalleN's Scout kill in round 17 brought the map and the series to an end.

We're really lucky to have faze and SK on the scene right now. Or this semester would consist on pure domination from one of them. It would be boring as hell. Honestly don't know what to expect tomorrow. Don't see anybody beating SK if they show up with this form, but cold and fer were kinda hidden today. That could be a factor. Good luck to both teams. #RunSK.
2017-12-09 21:36

Sure. I simply love astralis. But if SK and Faze are feeling it, no one can beat them, imo. But they're not always feeling it.
2017-12-09 21:48
Neither got the level of the legendary fnatic lineup so i simply disagree about "no one can beat them" cuz they might be the top teams nowadays, but I dont see them being not beatable as it has been shown often in the last couple of months with couple of other teams beating SK. The skill ceiling of astralis and G2 in terms of 5 individuals is clearly higher than SK and on par with FaZe, but the lack the consistancy in case of G2 and/or injury for astralis. Im pretty sure, there will be alot of different winners in 2018 and no SK nor FaZe dominating as you seem to imagine. :)

Australis even without injury lost to SK in the Epicenter. As for G2, the team is currently a big joke. I do not know what to say next year, but clearly this year we only have those two strong teams at the moment.
2017-12-10 00:04
You must be an SK hater if you think the skill ceiling of astralis and g2 is higher than SK's. Not even Faze's skill ceiling is higher than SK's, let alone teams that don't have skill at all. And yes, fnatic's peak is incredibly good AND consistent. But fnatic's best loses to SK's best any day of the week. Lastly, SK and Faze have won either top 1 or 2 of the last tournaments in the last 4 months or so. How the hell are they not dominating?

Its true to an extent tho. Faze and g2 are two teams with the highest skill ceiling. Following them are sk and astralis.
2017-12-10 08:46
Of course I have to be a SK hater if my opinion doesnt match yours. Brasilian logic? :) Compare the 5 individuals of FaZe, astralis or G2 to SK and tell me again, that SK would come out on top. :D And I am not even sure what to say about your troll with fnatic best loses to SK best any day. :D Legendary fnatic over many many months if not years would crush SK easily. Clearly better individually. You should try to think more with your head and no hate blindly with your fanboyism.
2017-12-10 15:55
If you think ASTRALIS and G2 can compete with cold, fallen, fer and boltz individually, then yeah, you're just a hater.
2017-12-10 17:29
You lack any kind of objectivity son. Xyp9x, shox, kennyS, device & Co are laughing about such statements.
2017-12-10 19:40
Know what's really funny? You had to mention the best players from both teams COMBINED, and they are still worse than all the players I mentioned (maybe not boltz). Still a simple hater, you see?

Rip misfits... :'( Good tournament at least. Didn't watch it, but must have been painful to watch
2017-12-09 22:31
Misfits had no business winning this game and everyone knows it. I hope they dont take this crushing loss too hard. They, hellraisers, and fnatic showed up and played some good CS. They should be happy knowing what they are capable of. The grand final tomorrow will hopefully be legendary

2017-12-09 22:48
feel like the order of the maps can give either team the edge hoping for a great series
2017-12-09 22:50
btw, gj to Misfits they showed some good games here. Dont be sad about this lost. U lost to best team in the world/FaZe period. WP! keep it up Mistfits!

Misfits fought well in the groupstage. But still a shame they aswell as fnatic and hellraisers made it out of groups.

SK never loses to FaZe even with TACO being a bot, now a real 5v5 would be nice to see.

Spawn and company forgive me, but the biggest Counter Strike team of all is the SK.BR. And let the whining begin.
