Cloud9 knock SK out; Astralis clinch semifinal spot over Liquid

Cloud9 edged SK out in three maps, staying alive and securing a quarterfinal spot while eliminating the Brazilians. On the other stream Astralis beat Liquid in three maps to clench a direct slot into the semifinals at the Spodek Arena.

The bout featuring Cloud9 and SK kicked off on Cache, with the North American side taking the first round of the map as Tarik "tarik" Celik connected four USP-S headshots. With 3-0 on the scoreboard, the first gun round came about as SK set up a default which ended up with a split B push, but a ready Cloud9 stopped the Brazilians for a 4-0 lead going into another anti-eco. The Brazilians got on the board on the sixth round, and despite losing the following, were able to take B to get a second round on the board on the following forcebuy. Despite a slow start, SK were able to bring it back to 6-6. After having taken the lead for the first time in the half, the Brazilian side was unable to hold it, as Cloud9 stopped an A split for 8-7 at the switch.

Despite going into the second half with the lead, Cloud9 were unable to hold on to it, and SK having won the pistol round quickly gained control early on in the second half. The North American squad weren’t able to win a round in the half until Jake "Stewie2K" Yip and Timothy "autimatic" Ta got a triple and a double, respectively, to get on the board, but the Brazilians, unrelentless, didn’t let up and won every single round until the end of the half, taking a 16-9 victory on map number one.

Cloud9 survived SK after coming back on the second half of Inferno

The second map, Mirage, which was Cloud9’s pick started with them taking the early lead on the attacking side, 3-0, but were unable to stop a 3vs3 retake by SK on the first gun round, as Epitacio "TACO" de Melo, Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo, and Marcelo "coldzera" David won the round out to get on the board. The following round saw Cloud9 execute on A, and after winning it, reset SK fully. Down 1-6, SK were finally able to get equipped and build an economy, winning three in a row. The half went down to the wire, with 7-7 on the board in the last round, which SK were able to bang out with a great 4-man A-site retake.

The second half started going the way of SK, who won the pistol round and quickly set themselves up with a hefty 11-7 lead. Cloud9 won the first gun round, in large part thanks to a triple by tarik, and then followed it up to maim the Brazilian’s team economy. With the momentum on their side, Cloud9 were able to bring it to a tie, 12-12, despite losing a 5vs5 A retake when trailing by one, 10-11. The North American side then went on to close out the map with an impeccable end of the half, winning out 16-12.

SK were unable to close out the last map of the best-of-three

The last map of the series, Inferno, started out with Cloud9 taking the lead on the defending side after stopping a B push from the Brazilian squad, but an A play by SK and a solid afterplant got the match back to a draw, 1-1. With the money in their favour, SK then won the following two rounds before Cloud9 could buy. FalleN and coldzera then closed out a 2vs2 afterplant on B to keep their streak going. After that, it was smooth sailing for SK who took a huge lead exploiting Cloud9’s defenses for an 11-4 lead at the half.

The second half was very different, as there it was Cloud9 who took the reins, winning the pistol round and following it up five times before SK could even get on the board, to keep their lead, 12-10, but Cloud9 won the crucial following round after a B execute and a successful afterplant defense. SK, who saved two guns but got reset, put all of their chips on the following round, but Cloud9 were successful bombing the A site to tie it up, 12-12, and force SK on a save round. Having the momentum and the economy going their way, Cloud9 kept exploiting SK, and despite losing a round, a huge double through coffins to kill the defending defusers by Tyler "Skadoodle" Latham got his team on match point, which was crystalized in the next round as the North Americans took the map and series.

Astralis looked like they were going to take the early lead out of the gate on Inferno, as they were able to win the pistol round on the defending side, but a second round forcebuy from Liquid got the Americans ahead as they were able to get two of their own. The Danes were able to win an eco to tie it up, which got the match off to a back-and-forth start, and despite a 1vs3 ace clutch by Russel "Twistzz" Van Dulken in the sixth round, Lukas "gla1ve" Rossander & Co. eventually made their way to a first half 10-5 win as Nicolai "device" Reedtz showed a glimpse of his old self.

The second half quickly brought Liquid back up to a draw as the American side took the first four rounds of the defending side before losing a round and resetting Astralis. Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski & Co. managed to tie the match up, 11-11. With the momentum on their side and Astralis failing to come up with ideas to break down Liquid’s defenses. Down 12-15, device tried to win a 1vs3 on B, but after two headshots was unable to clutch the last 1vs1 out as Keith "NAF" Markovic closed the map out for Liquid, 16-11.

Astralis are straight through to the semis

Nuke kicked off with Liquid taking the CT pistol round with doubles by NAF and EliGE, but Astralis won the force buy as Andreas "Xyp9x" Højsleth opened the round with the CZ75 and gla1ve and Emil "Magisk" Reif got doubles before and after planting, respectively, to bag the round. The Danes then quickly took off, as they had early in the first map, and controlled the pace of the half from the Terrorist side, which they closed out 11-4.

Winning the second pistol round of the map, this time on the defending side, it was a walk in the park for the Danes, who, with Magisk at the helm with 105 ADR and a 1.180 rating, were able to close out the map giving up just one round in the half, 16-10.

Liquid were outgunned on Overpass

The third map of the series also started back-and-forth, as Astralis were able to win the second round force on the defending side after losing the pistol round on Overpass. With the 3-1 lead, the first gun round saw Liquid play main but the Americans rotated towards B after losing two players thanks to a double by Lucas "steel" Lopes and went on to win the round. Astralis then took the lead in the early half, with a solid defense, and although Liquid were able to get a round here or there, the Danes closed the half with a hefty 10-5 lead.

The second half started with a 5vs5 afterplant on A, but despite getting three fast entries, the North Americans were unable to close the round as gla1ve and Magisk cleaned out the site to defend the bomb. The Danes then went on to cleanly win the half, 16-5, to bag the map, match, and semifinal berth.

2018-03-01 19:18
Ya that works for me, that'd be cool, just not north vs Astralis pls
2018-03-01 19:22
from the bracket it seems impossible to get nip vs fnatic final :(
2018-03-02 00:38
Only one non-arrogant team left in the running now, I hope either NiP or North wins.

Also, SK lost because they gave way too much respect to C9, every single round playing from back of site, 0 aggression. C9 got mid for free with 1 smoke and 1 flashbang every fucking round SK too scared to peak when it's 11-6?! I'm an SK fan but this was a despicable performance to lose against a team with 2 strats - fake B go A, fake A go B and nothing else but raw aggression and good aim. C9 didn't deserve this, but neither did SK. Work upon your problems SK or you're the next VP.

SK has fer who is arguably the most aggressive CS player and decide to play passive. They could've tried to get Overpass instead of Inferno but still not an excuse to go 4-11 to 16-13
2018-03-01 19:13
Exactly, after 11-4, even if they lost the pistol, they had 3 solid gun rounds each of which they could've tried different stuff, but nah they just wanna play passive with 0 information and limited utility.

2018-03-01 19:23
That round taco lost 1v1 vs autimatic was so stupid tbh, 4 seconds left and lets auti plant safely, he knows he's in the smoke and is low, has a deagle, there are so many pistols and guns on the ground near him, decides to shoot an ak47 instead.
2018-03-01 19:30
No man, can't blame taco autimatic completely brainfucked him
2018-03-01 19:36
I'm just saying he should've tried to stop the plant or at least make it seem like he is, make sound fire bullets, maybe auti gets off the plant. Even after the plant, he knows that auti is low as his teammate literally died for him by spamming an entire magazine. Even after the plant, he knows exactly where he is, sprays 3 deagle bullets, stops, doesn't switch or pick-up guns, basically waits for autI to fuck up and he doesn't, it's just sad tbh.
2018-03-01 19:41
They're doing everything wrong, they need to relearn playing cs. In my opinion only in April sk will comeback.
2018-03-01 19:25
They're taking too much pressure and overthinking, need to rewatch all your own demos and see where you're fucking up

Who on this fnatic lineup do you find arrogant?
2018-03-01 19:11
Actually, except JW and flusha at times, no one is, that's true yes.
2018-03-01 19:13
None of the playoff teams are arrogant wtf
2018-03-01 19:12
Faze, C9, full of arrogant cocky players, but can't blame them after this can we.
2018-03-01 19:13
What evidence you got? Do you know what "cocky" means? GuardiaN olof cocky what? Dimag hai? They are all great friends outside the game the air of cockiness makes things interesting. That's why we love k0nfig.
2018-03-01 19:16
Rain Niko Karrigan are cocky re, olof ko oopar likha Maine not cocky, guardian gets carried away so didn't consider him on either side. I'm a simple man bro, I just want to see the underdogs win.
2018-03-01 19:20
Rain is one of the most humble players in the scene right now. NiKo is not cocky at all, he just likes having fun playing CS. KarrigaN seems cocky because he's confident. He never belittles anyone. PS I am not indian I just translated that one phrase.
2018-03-01 19:19
Oh xD I don't know man, maybe it's just me being an SK fan disliking faze for some reason, they're the favorites for this tournament now for sure though, good luck to them.
2018-03-01 19:21
Im not a fan of either faze or SK. In my eyes faze will never be the favourites for me, they always choke in front of the crowd.
2018-03-01 19:23
As long as C9 doesn't win out of nothing, I'd be pretty satisfied. Nothing against C9, they play good CS but I just like some more importance to decision making and strats in the game, but for them, a couple of flashes and rifles are enough.

Rain and arrogant dont even fit into one sentence. Btw everyone on SK is cocky you SK fan
2018-03-01 19:41
Fallen fer taco boltz, neither of them are cocky. Cold is a lil overwhelmed at times I agree but hey 4/5 is pretty good.

Taco does what he needs to imo. Though his aim could improve a bit, he doesn't necessarily need it when he has cold on his team.
2018-03-01 19:12
Was about to say. Taco plays his role really well. He often gets/is in really good positions. His aim is bad tho. He could win sk a lot of rounds if he just got the kills he was supposed to.

Once the team with the most chance to comeback, now the team that gets "comebacked" the most. Great job, boltz and taco. Along with fer, the mad dog that can't be unleashed on inferno, you two are the most pathetic players in the scene.
2018-03-01 19:10
SK still t3 though bro. Keep ya head up. I mean you aren't winning shit ever again, but they might be able to compete n MDL and Fragadelphia still

You do realise that fallen and cold are still top5 players in the world, right? As soon as fallen kicks out the terrible trio, SK will rise again. Also: you can't bait be with that. I root for the team with the smartest player ever (also one of the best awpers), the best player ever, and the second best achievements in History (also the one the made the most money). Every empire crumbles someday.
2018-03-01 19:17
SeanGares isnt on a team right now tho, so how do you root for him?

After the Seangares comment, I understood you're a low troll. But good job. got me for a moment. 4/8

I disagree, fallen played a good game. Taco, boltz and fer are "uncarriable".
2018-03-01 19:15
I mean the second half. FalleN was insane the first, but the second half he clearly started getting cocky, and went down after a single kill almost every round.
2018-03-01 19:17
I don't know, he did such a good job on two of the last rounds. He swept cloud9. Only to see Taco and Boltz giving them the game once again.
2018-03-01 19:18
Only the second last round. The last round fallen got one and decided to repeal, when he could have moved. He then burned. And you can't blame boltz and taco, they were both low hp, time low and skadoodle is just a beast.
2018-03-01 19:20
They played that on the worst way possible. And fallen killed 2 that round. If I'm not mistaken, he got stewie at the start.

During the first years of CS the Brazilian fanbase were nowhere to be seen. But as soon as Fallen & co found success by going deep and winning tournaments, the Brazilians flooded the internet, and suddenly SK had 35459 fans who came out of nowhere. Now SK sucks, and the 10k Brazilians who spammed "lmao sk #1 u suck" "cry is free," etc., are nowhere to be seen.

A few, yes. Most of them? Nope Brazilian fans are just as annoying as NA fans, NiP fans etc—they dissapear when their team isn't perfoming, but when they do they certainly let the world know by being in-your-face everywhere (twitch, hltv, reddit...)

The problem will continue becouse when u are station in american reagion , not in Germany where SK main office is , you get to play with US teams and show all of your play style ... Second thing is Dead need to step up too ... SK play the game , not the opponents ... See what Zews makes from Liquid! SK is big organization , hire 2 more people to analize every opponent and play them ...
