BIG eliminate Gambit from FACEIT Major

BIG live to fight another day in the FACEIT Major's New Challengers Stage after defeating Gambit 16-8 on Nuke.

BIG got off to a great start to the match, winning the first three rounds as CTs to send out a strong message. Gambit responded with a convincing gun round, but BIG immediately countered the offence with an AWP triple-kill from Owen "smooya" Butterfield.

Gambit won a force-buy in the subsequent round, but they simply could not find a way through their opponents' defence in the next three.

gob b played a key role in BIG's victory

The PGL Major Krakow champions then got back on the board with another successful force-buy, but BIG replied with a pair of rounds before the CIS side recovered to bring the scoreline to 5-10.

Now playing as CTs, Gambit kept their hopes alive after by the pistol and the subsequent anti-eco. But once BIG bought up it was all over for Mihail "Dosia" Stolyarov & co as the German side took control of proceedings and ran out 16-8 victors to proceed to the final round of this Swiss stage.

how the fck those 4 guys + bot zeus won a major haha, most of people expected rematch in final between astralis vs vp in krakow xD
2018-09-08 19:33
Vse ravno navi pomoika
2018-09-08 19:32
NaVi? Why are you mentioning Navi?
2018-09-08 19:35
Because in the russian social web navi fangays now will hate all of gambit players, coz they kicked not kane from coach, not Zeus, just kane
2018-09-08 19:42
Fake china won Major only coz of Zeus and Kane. Kane - the main support for Zeus. So, if you kick him - you will lose Danya too. Gambit knew at and they were unrespectful. BIg confidance from nothing - thats the bad thing, you know.
2018-09-08 19:54
Ahahhaha, nt. GL
2018-09-08 20:00
What did i said wrong? What Gambot achived after Zeus gone? Right - nothing! 4 guys with star illness changing coaches, 5th player every time and every f<3cking time they have shitty resolts!
2018-09-08 20:02
Not only Zeus won the major. All team did it. Kane useless poker game with wasted mind was only as additive for Zeus. And Zeus put children's conditions, or you do not kick him, or we leave together. It was a provocation. Sooner or later, Zeus would have gone to Navi. He was offered it immediately after the major. Kick Kane was just an excuse. Gambit players burned out. Let's see what navi will win and what they would have win, having Zeus and Kane, but not having a simple and elic.
2018-09-08 20:11
Lol? Different thing. Maybe Gambit BOTs could make some frags, but they are braindead by themselfes. They dont even know how to use themselfes without good IGL. And to addition to your shit about Si1mpe - we talking about igl. S1mple, Guardian, Flamie, Edward and Seized - star roster without Zeus. They were like Gambit atm (but still stronger lol). What did they won? NOTHING. When Zeus came back and step in the shoes of one of the strongest AWPers. team started to play. I think, NaVi could let go one: S1 or El. After that, they will take good young talant - SDY, Coldi. And they wiil play like solit top-10 team, instead of top-3 atm. But still better then Gambots with no future. Listen to all coaches: they dont want to listen. Star illnes didnt allow. Thats why we can see retardead moves from them - now we have resolts!
2018-09-08 20:29
and after all, look at Adren without Zeus. 2013-2016 = bot, Zeus has come - 2016-2017 God. Zeus gone - still bot. Yes, they won major like a team. But they couldnt do it without Zeus. Without Hobbit or Dosia thats still was possible as we can see.
2018-09-08 20:31
#64 "Gambit players burned out." that's all
2018-09-08 20:34
Ok, you have nothing to say. Burned uot - washed up without good IGL. And still you cant give me en explanation of Adren performance.
2018-09-08 20:35
AdreN? Players have periods when they play well and when bad you know? Or its because of Zeus and kane all players had an incredible aim and gamesense? After major you will see -flamie, -simple. And your igl with his friend kane, yes friend, not coach, will go to the pension.
2018-09-08 20:43
Coincidence: only one good Adren perion was with Zeus. Yes? Flamie garbage, S1mple should go. I think they will win Major and retire (Zeus and Kane). AND! You kid cant understand: yes, Kane isnt coach. But he's hapling Zeus mentally. Thets why Zeus good igl - he have support from friend in every bad game.
2018-09-08 20:47
Ahahhaha, from your words kane is a supplement, which must be paid, for the fact that it exist. Is it professional approach? They will never win major, stupid fangay remember my words.
2018-09-08 20:52
Btw they woned big tournaments. Gambit will never win smth. BTW! You crazy Kazah have something to be proud - AVANGAR. THis young guys have something to proove.

YES. Gambit will win "nihuya". Na'Vi won 5 tournamenst last 10 monthes. /Gambit trash without Zeus, Zeus still good without fake china team.
2018-09-08 20:49
Rofl, they didn't kick Zeus, you know? He himself wanted to go to his native organization, which treated him like a shit. As i said kick Kane was just an excuse.
2018-09-08 20:54
Ahahaha. He said - you kick Kane, you kick me. The desition has been made by team of stupid fake china guys.

Two Majors in CS GO, one Major in 1.6, five times champions in World Cup!!! You can have your little 7-1 or 3-0! That is all you got! When you get to the top like my team we can talk, until now you look far far away I can't even see you...you look like a maggot! Stupid Germans come to Brazil on reveillon to see fireworks from the favelas' slabs...and they pay for it...just to get robbed! You are braindead like the sausage you make!

Less wins, no major's. So, conclusion: Less drinks and less whores - less gamesence, less luck, less good plays.

Imo they should get rid of dosia and mir and somehow try to get ange1 and bondik. Blade can stay as coach
2018-09-08 21:55
Yeah, he needs to go. He has been playing horribly and can't lead to save his life. Can't even think tbh, he is one of the most brainless player on the scene for someone who has been playing for such a long time...

Exactly, and sometimes he had a sick game where he won the match for them But that time is long gone aswell.
2018-09-09 08:41
As much as I love the core gambit roster but they will definitely disband, mou will go to a tier 1 team (maybe learn some english and easily join a team like c9 who are struggling). Dosia will probably retire soon anyway. Much like pasha

he's bad at english afaik. i think zeus is able to create a good system with double aWPS. and simple on T side with AK is OP as hell. + the fact that s1mple is a guy who needs to stay triggered. Not saying its ongoing atm but he might have a sudden urge to start rifling agian
