EnVyUs to CS:GO Asia Championships semis over Heroic

Envy have secured their place in the CS:GO Asia Championships semi-finals after beating Heroic 2-1 (16-9 on Inferno, 12-16 on Mirage, and 16-13 on Train).

Envy and Heroic squared off in the second quarter-final at the CS:GO Asia Championships. The series started on Inferno with the T-sided Envy picking up the pistol round and the anti-ecos (3-0).

Heroic reacted in the first weapon round with Andreas "MODDII" Fridh and Ruben "RUBINO" Villarroel's double kills but throughout the half they could only get two consecutive rounds which led to their trailing 9-6 at halftime.

ScreaM was EnVyUs' best player

Envy started their CT-side with a 3vs3 retake to win their tenth round. After Envy secured one more round, Heroic hit back with an early buy to grab their seventh. However, they were reset immediately as they couldn’t initiate a streak (12-7). Envy went on to close out the map 16-9.

Mirage, which was the second map, saw Fabien "kioShiMa" Fiey and Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom clutch a 2vs4 in the pistol round to give the T-sided Envy the 1-0 lead. ScreaM and kioShiMa's quad-kills in the second and third rounds, respectively, made it 3-0.

kioShiMa clutched a 1vs2 in the first gun round, denying Heroic's defuse attempt and extending Envy' lead to 4-0. Heroic responded to the French team's early 5-0 lead by taking five of their own and tying the game.

Heroic finished the event in 5-6th place

The five-round streak trend stayed alive as Envy claimed the last five of the half to lead 10-5 at halftime, largely thanks to kioShiMa and ScreaM who got 20 and 17 kills, respectively.

The Frenchmen took the second half pistol round but lost the second round (11-6). Then kioShiMa got an incredible Deagle quad kill to extend the French team's lead to 12-6. However, Heroic then went on a 10-round streak to come back and win the map 16-12.

Envy' dominance in pistol rounds continued on Train where they started on the CT-side to win the first three rounds. Heroic managed to catch up to Envy, tying the game at 6-6 after being down 6-2. ScreaM got a crucial quad kill in the 13th round, three of which were with Deagle (7-6). Envy finished the half with a 9-6 lead.

nV will face Natus Vincere in the semis

Although the French side took the second half pistol round, Heroic responded in the following round with USPs as they turned around a 3vs5 with Nikolaj "niko" Kristensen's triple kill and MODDII's 1vs1 clutch. Christophe "SIXER" Xia & company responded swiftly as ScreaM and kioShiMa took the team's 12th round with their entry kills (12-7).

Heroic secured four rounds in a row in each of which they lost two or less players, helping them establish a strong economy on the CT-side (12-11). RUBINO & co. tied the game with a retake but Envy recovered the lead in the following round (13-12).

niko's 1vs2 clutch tied the game once again, this time at 13-13. Envy closed out the map 16-13 and won the series 2-1 to advance to the semi-finals at CS:GO Asia Championships 2018.

kio is a current IGL and they actually are doing well, you can see some ideas in the game. He should have been given longer chance.
2018-06-17 12:52
you can use nbk as a regular player still, rpk is old and outdated

I still prefer RpK over NBK, before his sickness he was the best in the team, now he lack in form but he will deliver
2018-06-17 13:02
they obviously have enough firepower in that lineup, they don't need rpk
2018-06-17 13:08
+1 NBK is awful. Can’t igl can’t frag etc. most overrated player for 3 years. Most of his frags are exofrags...most padded stats.

NBK igling didn't impress me honestly. I'd rather go with Apex entry Kio igl/supp Scream 2nd entry Zywoo awp Hadji 2nd supp/lurk/whatever I'd keep hadji because he shows some promise and I'd be curious to see how much he could improve.

I thought the same thing too. They are giving good results as of late but sixer needs to be replaced by zywoo, not that sixer is bad, i just can't picture him being a member of a french super team
2018-06-18 01:25
sixer is way too inconsistent but sometimes his just really bad zywoo or kennyS would be a good choice if possible for a picture of a supermegaawesome french team

As FNS was benched as an igl. NBK is reportedly being that role for them according to a French news website. He also speaks fluent English so he wouldn't have any communication problems. Plus when tarik streams he is always on a team w ska rush auti and NBK

NBK dont want to play with Scream
2018-06-17 14:20
it's not like he doesn't want it, it's just nbk not liking how scream plays, but it doesn't look like there are many strong teams that want nbk to join them

His in game leading has been stagnant since 2013, no inovation and he is a really bad lurker
2018-06-17 12:43
True what u said. Everytime I watched him play I got the feeling he was baiting so hard but its because he's such a bad lurker. Glad to see them perform better now.

2018-06-17 13:04
They make the semis and all people are talking about here is what player they should replace. Typical HLTV stuff. Ok, some make sense but why remove 2-3 players? you are esentially making an entire new team. Yeah they only beat VG and Heroic who aren't all that special but played well against NAVI too. Sixer is the only player that should be gone and everyone knows that. Hadji and xms should be kept.
2018-06-17 13:20
You dont keep xms when apex and fucking zywoo are free agents

You dont change players when a current iteration of the team works because it is exactly as it is.

"Works" is subjective I dont think their objective is to be top 15
2018-06-17 18:11
while they only played a couple of matches this team looks much better than any other version of nV, and this says alot considering the team has SIXER and xms
