TyLoo & Heroic secure first wins in Kiev

TyLoo and Heroic have improved their records to 1-1 after defeating fnatic and HellRaisers, respectively, at StarSeries i-League S4.

TYLOO and fnatic came in to the second round of Swiss with 0-1 records. The best-of-three series started on Cobblestone where the Chinese team were on the T-side in the first half. Hansel "BnTeT" Ferdinand & co. won the first three rounds but fnatic stopped them in their tracks in the first weapon round with a team ace.

TYLOO took two rounds to reply but lost a 5vs3 in the seventh round because of Freddy "KRIMZ" Johansson's incredible ace (5-2). The Chinese secured three more rounds in the second half to lead 8-7 at halftime.

TyLoo stunned fnatic

TYLOO picked up the first three rounds in the second half just like they did in the first one, but fnatic once again reigned supreme in the first gun round as Jonas "Lekr0" Olofsson got a triple kill and his team trailed 8-11. fnatic got to ten rounds but Ke "captainMo" Liu's team won five rounds in a row to win the first map 16-10.

The second map which was Inferno saw fnatic start on the CT-side. Robin "flusha" Rönnquist's two opening kills brought the pistol round to fnatic but Kevin "xccurate" Susanto clutched a 1vs2 post plant with a Deagle in the second round to make it 1-1.

fnatic are in trouble after picking up two defeats in as many games

fnatic were able to respond quickly, making it 2-1. They were in danger of getting reset but Maikil "Golden" Selim got an ace in a 2vs5 to extend fnatic's lead to 3-1. Even though fnatic had a 7-2 lead at one point in the first half, TYLOO grabbed the last six rounds of the half to lead 8-7 at halftime, just like they did on Cobblestone.

fnatic won a 3vs5 in the second half pistol round and cleaned up the anti-eco rounds to go in front (10-8). The map went to overtime where TYLOO won 19-16. The Chinese team got the series with a 2-0 score and improved their record in Kiev to 1-1.

fnatic played so badly. TyLoo actually did not play so well, making some easy x vs 1 quite risky. But fnatic was worse, and in latter rounds of each map, their mindset was..... emmmmm

Both of them then. I refuse to let JW off the hook, his awping this tournament so far has been less average than CajunB, and that guy simply is the go-to answer for a less-than-average awper. But yeah Golden's fragging power is just a joke.

JW is a streaky player and there isn’t anything to do since there are no available Swedish AWPers available unless they decide to get allu. Meanwhile one of the best igl in Sweden is available.

I know, and that's a pretty damn sad fact. He's still, afterall, somewhat better than Allu in some situations. True. They should pick said IGL up.
