G2 have eliminated Cloud9 with a 22-19 victory on Inferno at the FACEIT Major New Legends Stage.

The Inferno game featuring two teams with 1-2 records started with G2 on the CT-side. Cloud9 secured the pistol round with Martin "STYKO" Styk and William "RUSH" Wierzba's double kills and made it 3-0 after straightforward anti-eco rounds.

Alexandre "bodyy" Pianaro got a triple kill in the first weapon round to win it for G2 but Cloud9 reacted two rounds later and went on to make it 6-2. G2 managed to recover and finished the first half with a 8-7 lead.

G2 remain alive

The Franco-Belgian team took the B-site in the second pistol and led 11-7 following anti-eco wins. Cloud9 responded with a retake in the first weapon round and followed it up with three more rounds to tie it the game at 11-11.

Cloud9 acquired a match point with Timothy "autimatic" Ta's 1vs2 and a 2vs3 retake a round later but G2 were able to get the 30th round and take the game to overtime.

G2 closed out the game in the second overtime, winning the map 22-19 to improve their record to 2-2 at the FACEIT Major New Legends Stage. Meanwhile, Cloud9's run in the tournament has come to an end.

2018-09-15 19:13
Nice struggle against a T3 team. Nice not buying an AK for shox in the 28th round, your topfragger didn't need it. And every T round they won was DESPITE them playing like a silvers mix from MM. G2's only chance to get to the playoffs is to get matched against HellRaisers, and even against HellRaisers it shall be a really tough game with HellRaisers having more chances to win, and the other possible opponents will easily rape G2.
2018-09-15 19:13

vs MIBR 20/80 vs FaZe 20/80 vs NiP 30/70 vs fnatic 35/65 It's the end, and their 2 so-called wins will mislead them, telling them they're doing things right and have any chance in the future, it's the worst that can happen to a team with no potential - to start thinking that any potential will come in 2-3 months of "hard work", as if they were doing nothing in the last 3.5 months, like how much more do you need to fucking start showing any signs of a T1 team?.. I'm laughing hard at Ocelote, the dude made lots of money, now he's wasting lots of money to pay those noobs.
2018-09-15 19:29
Thats what they would say about complexity at the start of new Legends stage hahahaha, this Game isnt as predictable as it was before, u may get surprised (or not)
2018-09-15 19:31
compLexity played pretty decent, at least they won rounds that they worked well enough to win, unlike G2 that managed to take rounds only thanks to luck and some individual skill combined with their enemies' mistakes. Seriously, where are any smart plays, I watch G2 really carefully and there was nothing worth mentioning, I'm not sure how drunk 5 guys should be to play like that for all that time they're together.
2018-09-15 19:37
Before new legends no people thought that. It is what I mean.
2018-09-15 19:43
compLexity played pretty well and showed something, G2 played like bots and showed nothing, feel the difference.
2018-09-15 19:44
We'll see, though. They didnt play that bad.

Basically no one except some overly optimistic/even delusional people thought C9 would make it to top 8.
2018-09-15 19:18
Probably better they didn't miraculously get legend status because the whole roster might need a revamp without worrying about who they have to keep for the legend spot. Rush, styko, & golden could go away and you wouldn't hear many complaints

they'll still have to worry about that because they'll get invited to challengers stage. only winstrike and mousesports won't get invited because they finished 0-3. if they change 3 players they'll have to go through open/closed qualifiers (probably invited to closed) and then minor.

I believe that they can get better but they will never have firepower to be top 5. either bodyy or smithzz has to go or kennys should consider joining nbk&apex.

styko throw, i watched him bait his team so much it was crazy, anytime he rotated he basically baited rush to die over and over again. Sad day, team has potential if ska keeps it up when i matters and golden can get a grip on calling. still need a better igl though. Golden only won bc krimz and flusha played like they used to, nothing to do with strats

When you lose against these teams(at a pro level ofc) and your only win is by a scratch against winstrike one of the worst cis teams. The you go to the drawing board and you make the team from scratch. That was a shitshow
