Cloud9 eliminate Astralis from Major

Cloud9 are through to the fifth round of the ELEAGUE Major's New Legends Stage after easing past Astralis 16-6 on Train.

Cloud9 started the match off on the right foot, securing a quick 3-0 lead after picking up their T-side pistol with a B execution. In the first gun round, William "RUSH" Wierzba and Tyler "Skadoodle" Latham further extended their team's lead after winning a 2v4 situation. 

After getting their economy back on track, Astralis held off their opponents two rounds in a row, bringing the deficit to 2-5. The Danes then looked to be in prime position to break Cloud9's economy after Nicolai "device" Reedtz picked up four kills, but Jake "Stewie2K" Yip had different plans and clutched a 1v2 situation.

Cloud9 move into the 2-2 pool

A scrappy period of play ensued as neither team could stamp their authority on the game, with Astralis bagging the final two rounds of the half to bring the scoreline to 6-9. 

Cloud9 began the second half just like the first, winning three rounds in a row and the first gun round. But this time, Astralis would not be able to find a single opening as the North Americans locked down the map without losing a round as CTs.

Yeah i agree. I think that especially Astralis came in maybe with too much confidence.
2018-01-22 20:20
I think they didn't have enough practice to get their teamwork done, they lost so many rounds with advantages, also dupreeh awping is not the best idea
2018-01-22 20:41
I think with time it could work with dupreeh being awper, if he wants it and device is an amazing rifles, then why not. I think they just need a little more of a loose ct side with the changes, it worked very well with the standins
2018-01-23 00:02
I think it's really bad that the major is after the break, the top teams lose a bit of skill and then they are on par with the lower teams, that's why these upsets keep happening

SK is German too xD Makes no sense dude.
2018-01-22 20:15
So German CS = Choke CS aswell? since mousesports blew a 13-2 lead.. right?
2018-01-22 20:17
No cuz SK almost made it through and Mousesports still can be in the Major but North and Astralis cant.
2018-01-22 20:18
Yeah but... they still blew a 13-2 lead.. is that not a choke?
2018-01-22 20:19
It is ,but SK didnt choke and BIG was just bad so German CS=no Choke CS
2018-01-22 20:21
No no no my bro.. I totally forgot about BIG.. Now you really are in the same sinking boat as the Danish scene. German+Danish CS = Choke CS EOD
2018-01-22 20:23
Choke is when U have huge lead and U still loose SS VS BIG Match was 16-8 for SS NORTH choked so BIG won 16-12 and BIG never had a really huge lead in the gerne ,I think U Just didnt watch the match dude.
2018-01-22 20:26
"Choke is when U have huge lead and U still loose" Mousesports vs QBF 13-2 to 16-14 EOD

Hopefully, astralis will get rid of device, and make dennis a permanent member. He fits them so much better, and their playstyle with him is wayyy more dynamic. Sad day for danish cs, i just hope that jugi will be considered as a main awp option for Astralis/north, because device and dupreeh awping are mediocre at best.
