KRIMZ shines as fnatic breeze past Gambit
Defending Major champions Gambit have been sent packing in Atlanta following a 16-2 thrashing at the hands of fnatic in the fifth round of the New Legends Stage.
The first match of the fifth Swiss round began with fnatic storming the A site, where Freddy "KRIMZ" Johansson found three frags to give his team their first round on the board. After taking both anti-ecos with ease, the Swedes continued racking up rounds thanks to a series of multikills from Jonas "Lekr0" Olofsson, forcing Gambit to call a timeout when they were down 0-7.
After the short break, the Kazakhstani team finally put their foot down and held fnatic off with back-to-back rounds, but the Swedes would quickly regain control of proceedings, closing out the half with a dominant 13-2 lead, with KRIMZ sitting at 23 frags.
More misery was about to come Gambit's way as fnatic won the second half's pistol round with ease, leaving Mihail "Dosia" Stolyarov's men in further disarray. The Kazakhstani side's subsequent force buys were all but ineffective as the Swedes locked down the map to book a playoff berth.
