SK outrun fnatic in quarter-final marathon in Boston

SK are through to the semi-finals at the ELEAGUE Major's New Champions Stage after defeating fnatic 2-1 (19-22 on Inferno, 16-14 on Overpass, and 16-12 on Mirage).

The last quarter-final series featured SK and fnatic. The Swedish team started Inferno, which was their own map pick, on the T-side and picked up the pistol round victory with Jonas "Lekr0" Olofsson's quad kill in a 2vs4 post-plant situation. SK's response came in the next round as Epitacio "TACO" de Melo got a triple kill on the defensive side (1-1).

Freddy "KRIMZ" Johansson clutched a 1vs3 to get an ace in the following round, putting his team ahead (2-1). fnatic grabbed two anti-eco rounds and a full weapon round to extend their lead to 5-1. SK saved two weapons in the sixth round and were able to buy again in the following one which they won to earn their second round (5-2).

SK recovered after losing the first one

Lekr0 showed up in the ninth round to get a 1vs2 clutch and a quad kill, making it 6-3. When the score was 8-5, Lekr0 got three Deagle entry kills on the A-site and fnatic went on to win the half 9-6.

TACO's entry kill in the second half pistol round paved the way for SK's round win but fnatic responded in the following round with pistols, making it 10-7. Even though fnatic were able to extend their lead to 14-7 and later got four map points at 15-11, SK won eight of the last nine rounds to tie the game at 15-15 and take it to overtime.

The teams moved on to the second overtime after the first one ended 18-18. Fernando "fer" Alvarenga defused the bomb in the first round of second overtime as Robin "flusha" Rönnquist didn't peek the angle in time. flusha got three entry kills in the following round to make it 19-19. fnatic got two match points after making it 21-19 and closed it out with a 4vs5 post plant victory (22-19).

Lekr0 did everything he could to keep fnatic alive

The second map was Overpass where fnatic started on the CT-side. SK made it 1-0 after Marcelo "coldzera" David clutched a 1vs3 but KRIMZ responded with a triple kill in the next one (1-1). The teams traded rounds once more which tied the map at 2-2. Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo got a ridiculous Scout kill in the fifth round, leading the way for a round win (3-2).

When SK had a 5-2 lead, fnatic got back into the game by winning a 1vs2, a 2vs4, and two 3vs5s (6-5). SK picked up the last four rounds of the first half to finish it 9-6 ahead.

fnatic's pistol round success in the second half went to waste as SK won the next round with a force buy and later made it 12-7 with the first weapon round victory. KRIMZ got a triple kill to earn fnatic's eighth round and clutched a 1vs2 to grab the eleventh one (13-11).

fnatic were able to get to 13-13 but TACO stopped the Swedes on their tracks in the twenty-seventh round with a triple kill which was followed up by FalleN's quad kill in the twenty-eighth round (15-13). FalleN & company finished it off in the ultimate round thanks to TACO who prevented a B-site push with a double kill (16-14).

SK will take on Cloud9 in the semis

SK kicked off the last map, Mirage, on the CT-side and won the first two rounds. fnatic bought early and took their first round to trail 2-1. fnatic went ahead 6-3 and won the half 8-7 with Lekr0's ace in the last round.

The Brazilian squad's T-side campaign got off on the right foot as they won the pistol round and the following anti-eco. However, fnatic saved some armors and pistols from the second round which they used to win the third round of the half (9-9). 

Despite being 12-9 down, SK came back and won the map 16-12, taking the series 2-1 and moving on to the semi-finals at the ELEAGUE Major's New Champions Stage.

that stand in played with sk last year so not a real stand in
2018-01-27 21:35
it's not about if they played with him before, it's about that they replaced him with someone else because they didn't feel comfortable playing with him if they were satisfied with how felps played they wouldn't pick boltz

how is it not about it? lol he is the best option all the way. best stand-in for sk like ever. u can't deny it
2018-01-27 22:50
you do know it's not MM and each player plays his role, don't you? SK made a mistake when they picked felps in place of fnx, they found it out too and then picked boltz ffs you cyka blet why is it so hard for you to understand obvious things?

lol mistake. boltz in immortals at that time played like shit until krakow major. and they won 5 tournaments with him. nice mistake. sure they are better with boltz but felps is still solid. and he is familiar with threir system. stfu and stop being delusional retard.
2018-01-27 23:09
you have found out that you were mistaken that's why you are being that angry xD if SK had no issues with felps they wouldn't replace him, there's nothing to discuss
2018-01-27 23:20
actually SK didn't replace felps because of his skill or playstyle, it was felps who felt unhappy with his role on the team therefore he was replaced by boltz. Imo, felps is better than boltz and if he can adapt to his role then SK would be unstoppable
2018-01-28 00:41
it's not MM, it's not all about individual skill, otherwise old fnatic would still be the best in the world felps has no issues with his skill or whatever, he is just not the player SK needed, he doesn't fit SK in the way they expected him to that's why SK are still strong but with boltz they would be stronger, while now their opponents have more chances to win

keep telling it to yourself. no one denying that sk with boltz stronger. it's just pure retarded to say that felps is pulling them down by being fantstic stand-in. it's hardly stand-in. it's just different iteration of sk.
2018-01-28 01:00
> sk with boltz stronger > felps is pulling them down SK is stronger with boltz thus they're weaker with felps, whatever you call it, whatever words you use the truth is the same. And yes, I'm telling that to myself because there's no point to talk to somebody like you.

2018-01-28 01:14
They were forced to play with felps by the major rules, before and after the major they're to play with boltz. It makes a difference to train with a guy that you know you're playing at only one important tournament and to train with a guy that you do know you will play for many months. Plus, either felps was unhappy with his role or they were unhappy about how he played it, anyway with boltz they're stronger. You're making me laugh with your stupid messages so go on please ;-)

they trained for a month with FOX when he was a stand-in. maybe they thought that they don't need to practice with felps cuz he is not a real stand-in? no? it's their own mistake. stop trying so hard with youre flawed logic
2018-01-28 01:26
as far as i remember, they offered fox to stay, while they knew for sure felps would be gone after the major. by coming back you only make yourself look more and more stupid while im happy to help you do that ;-)

2018-01-28 17:58
it seems like you don't give a flying fuck about what I'm saying or you just simply can't read, so keep thinking what you thinking "João "felps" Vasconcellos stepped down from SK's starting roster last month after growing increasingly unhappy with his team role. " I'll just leave that here
2018-01-28 00:58
Whether it was his unhappiness or his teammates were unhappy about how he fitted his role, it changes nothing in the end. It's much harder for an unhappy player to show his best level.
2018-01-28 01:15
well it does change a lot since you were implying that SK got rid off him because he was unable to fit into the team, while in fact it was felps who was unhappy with his role. what I'm trying to say is that fallen knew that felps could adapt to his new role in the future if he at least tried to but instead he gave up.
2018-01-28 01:28
Do you really believe in everything the officials say? NiP also didn't kick Fifflaren and friberg, but do you believe that? Nobody kicked ScreaM officially but after he was sold someone like Maikelele said that they didn't want to play with him anyway and they were lucky to get rid of him, but surely their org didn't say anything like that. And yes felps is like a stand-in because he will not stay and everybody in SK knows that, moreover he doesn't like to play the required role in SK which affects SK performance.
2018-01-28 02:22
no I don't but this information looks legit to me, as felps was the one who revealed this and yes we could argue that the organisation forced him to say that or he just didn't want to reveal the real reason, but I hardly believe that. & yeah I know felps is a stand-in since boltz is on the official roster, but imo felps is better than boltz. I know they'll keep playing with boltz, it's just my personal opinion that he isn't as good as felps is.
2018-01-28 02:41
i also think that felps is better than boltz individually, but boltz fits his role better; it reminds me of shox-entry fragger back in ldlc times - shox was never bad but to entry wasn't the best he could do
2018-01-28 09:25

Actually, their teamplay revolves around boltz playing safely and fer being the crazy one. With felps, who's also agressive, fer does not have the freedom he's used to. That interfers his gameplay and the whole team. Felps is a good player, nonetheless, he doesn't play the way SK is training for.

This is so much bullshit that I'm thinking you have already begun shaking for SK raping Cloud9 out of the major... Fnatic is so much better than Cloud9 that the only worry now is Faze in the finals... And also... the crowd is part of the event and whatever bullshit you are talking about that didn't happen, could have gone both ways. Just accept SK is the best team even with a stand-in and shut up.

I could only notice Cold fixing his inner earphone, having sensitive ears myself, I imagine it must be uncomfortable wearing those under the soundproof headphones. And he only did that in between a round, I'm sure if someone did that in the middle of a round they'd have been caught. On another note, I'm brazilian. I don't wear the flag trying to avoid mindless people like you, who seem to judge people and pick fights based on their nationality. Have a nice day, VeryUnpleasentGuy

Dude go and watch mirage it was mid game fnatic on the t side (don't remember the round) fallen was checking connector and flusha was boosted up in window and hid in the corner on the left side. It was perfect for a flank because he went unnoticed but some Brazilian in the crowd started shouting "janela" which literally translates to "window" and fallen turned around and checked the left side corner of window where flusha was hiding and killed him and the casters were complimenting his game sense ROFL. This is just 1 clear example of SK cheating

2018-01-27 21:29
Difference is, Faze would have won 99/100 times anyway. This match the ghosting won it for SK, so undeserved.
2018-01-27 21:52
Yeah but the difference is that FaZe was already destroying mousesports. SK vs fnatic games were all SUPER close, so even one round won by that determines the series.
2018-01-27 21:52
The same thing with other team is Good but if is SK ez cheat. Really not Good for no one Faze or SK or any team. E League have to put the sound Chamber i think. Great game anyway

Yes, we. They represent a country and a comunity. And i really dont care after semis, we are with stand in that change all The play style, make CT side weeknes and a fragile mapp pool. I will cheer with all MT heart until The end, but this major dont have The hype of other majors. The best part was The qualify.

well at least they are still better than those kids, who just hates for the sake of hating. imagine hltv thread list if sk wouldve lost :) i cant see a single brazilian-authored thread disrespecting fnatic. The forums are filled with tears of losers, who cant stand people who are just being genuinely happy for their homeland team. blaming crowd and cursing SK fanbase, after such an intense and amazing game.

I can already feel that every game will be underwhelming after this bo3, We just roled back the years to 2015. Massive performance from Lekro and Fallen on each side, neither deserved the loss. Thankfully for my bias, Fallen ended up leading his team to victory! #RUNSKG

"SK outcheat fnatic gonna get raped by c9"
2018-01-27 21:48
wanted fnatic to go through, but thats cool, gg!
2018-01-27 21:48
wp both teams, WHAT A FUCKING GAME. Lekro is a God, Krimz is so clutch, my god good job Fnatic. #GoSk
2018-01-27 21:49
fix games for cloud9
2018-01-27 21:49
I think it's funny that SK played so many times in the home of the opponents and was harmed with the fans shouting information and even so won the championships. the despair of the haters has no limit, just weep and enjoy the best team of all time
2018-01-27 21:50
SK only won because of crowd ghosting, disgusting. Ofc mankeys are still defending them.
2018-01-27 21:52
+1 it's f*cking stupid... don't like it.
2018-01-27 21:54
SK got lucky there, but at the same time they played good CS. Hope fnatic keeps improving and start to fight for 1st places
2018-01-27 21:53
If somehow sk win this major,TACO should be mvp(no jokes) he doing pretty well here.
2018-01-27 21:53
Lekro amazing
2018-01-27 21:53
gg felps
2018-01-27 21:54
Congrats SK! You've had a fantastic run at this major despite having a standing. Unfortunately, your run comes to an end with the home team Cloud9, but it was still a fantastic run nevertheless. Gg wp!
2018-01-27 21:54
GG WP, too much mistakes on both sides, but it was an amazing BO3.
2018-01-27 21:56

+98 they won modt of their 2017 prizes with felps. Just a lame excuse used by sk amd their subjective fans
2018-01-28 04:39
Yep
2018-01-28 04:42

2018-01-27 22:27
Crowd won this game for them. I was sitting behind the huge Brazil crowd and they were screaming at the top of their lungs what site and then they were yelling window in portuguese on Mirage. Disgusting
2018-01-27 22:42
the headphones have anti-acoustic nt and the crowd did the same in faze vs mouz. mr olofmeister can confirm that

2018-01-27 23:11
Calling Felps a stand in to make themselves feel better lul, it seems they have amnesia and forgot last year, the only stand in was fox. gg fnatic new team barely couple of months working together made sk shake. sk fans shouting calls, the worst fans ever.
