fnatic beat Astralis to move into 2-1 pool

fnatic have secured their second victory in the ELEAGUE Major Boston's New Legends Stage after beating Astralis 16-8 on Mirage.

Starting out as Terrorists, Astralis kicked off the match with a well-planned A execution through mid, which Robin "flusha" Rönnquist and Jonas "Lekr0" Olofsson countered with a 2v4 clutch to give fnatic the pistol round.

Astralis' third-round buy nearly bore fruits, but then a quad kill from Freddy "KRIMZ" Johansson helped the Swedes further cement their lead. The 23-year-old would come up huge again shortly afterwards, resetting the Danes' economy after they had finally got their first round on the board. 

fnatic are now 2-1 in the New Legends Stage

The Danes responded with their second-round win in the hopes of finally finding a footing in the game, but fnatic remained in control and closed out the half with a dominant 12-3 lead. 

fnatic then won their second pistol thanks to yet another quad-kill from KRIMZ, Astralis rallied back immediately, however, and strung a few rounds together to keep themselves in it. But then fnatic's offense came to life, with the Swedes winning three of the next four rounds to run out 16-8 winners.

I do not need to apologize ah who made me bad for free, what matters is that I know that I was seriously wrong and really sorry, life is not based on Twitter alone but on changes. It's no use asking for an excuse and being the same.

Astralis and north both need to do a roster shuffle. Very underwhelming and they certainly can do better. Would be cool to see : Glaive Konfig Dupreeh Valde Xyp9x
