eUnited shock Na`Vi in Chicago; fnatic defeat BIG

MIRAA
November 6th, 2018 22:47

eUnited have pulled off the first major upset of IEM Chicago 2018 after easing past Natus Vincere, while fnatic have defeated BIG in what was also a one-sided match.

Many had expected the secondary stream match to be a one-sided affair, and while that was certainly the case, only few would have predicted Na`Vi to be on the losing end. eUnited, now led by Pujan "FNS" Mehta, jumped out to a 3-0 lead on the Terrorist side before a 1v2 clutch by Denis "electronic" Sharipov in the first gun round put Na`Vi on the board. The Ukrainians were unable to build on that, however, as eUnited rallied back immediately and ran away with the lead.

Down 1-9, Na`Vi finally broke eUnited's streak on what was a very cheap buy on their part, and they followed that up with another round, securing their first gun round win. The North Americans were unwilling to take their foot off the gas, though, and won the remaining rounds for a dream 12-3 half against the No.2 team in the world, with Will "dazzLe" Loafman sitting on 19 frags.

eUnited send Na`Vi to the lower bracket

Now playing on the Terrorist side, Na`Vi kept their hopes alive by winning the pistol round and the corresponding anti-ecos. But then it all fell apart as the Ukrainians - apart from their star duo - looked well off the pace, while eUnited kept their defense very tight to win four gun rounds in a row and seal a comprehensive victory against the BLAST Pro Series Copenhagen champions.

Meanwhile, the new fnatic line-up and BIG squared off on the main stream, with the German side taking the lead following a triple-kill by Johannes "tabseN" Wodarz in the pistol round.

A quad-kill by Jesper "JW" Wecksell in a messy buy round saw fnatic bring the deficit to 1-2 and marked the beginning of a fantastic run by the Swedes, who shut down any chances of BIG stringing rounds together and went into the break up 11-4.

fnatic off to a great start in Chicago

BIG looked the livelier of the two sides at the start of the second half as they won four consecutive rounds to cut the gap to 8-11. However, their efforts were in vain as the Swedes then tightened up their defense to close out the map in the 25th round.

there is no decent german igl
2018-11-06 22:56
? gob b is an absolutely fantastic IGL, one of the best. The hell you mean no decent German IGL. He is given a team which honestly shouldn't be Top 20 consistently and made them Top 10 consistently.

A.) There are no other decent IGLS B.) What do you mean gob b is a bad IGL? He is the best kind of IGL and if he came from a country with a better scene (Sweden, Ukraine, Denmark, etc.) he'd be a god-tier IGL at the top of the game with his work ethic and use of players. Just because he sticks around in a scene that (Not to be rude to Germans) doesn't have a scene that should be consistently Top 20 and is making them touch Top 10 doesn't mean he is bad, all the more damn respect for the guy.

Well smooya is the fucking awper it's his sole purpose to get frags, most star players like kennyS and guardian back in the day and fallen coldzera and simple are awpers or at least their best clips are awp because it's the gun to get kills with nex is fucking entry I think entry isn't supposed to get kills he needs to give info and be bait for his teammates, also in a gob b team that relies mostly on strat the language factor is a huge thing

Oh my God what an OG he plays since 2014 OMEGALUL also u know someone is wrong when he points out one single typo and uses it as an argument and lastly please whatch a video from thorin or someone else who has a clue of CS about the topic because clearly, you don't. 2nd entry/playmaker and awper are there to get kills, after that lurker and entry.

Do u even know what lurker means?? Entry are supposed to have the strongest fire and aim to get their first kills for the team so that they can execute the sites better??and do u know lurker is the one that is guarding the team from being backstab??and i prove ur eng wrong not a typi and i prove the points that newbie like u have 0 clue about,i guess u should watch more of thorin videos before u fight with a veteran in csgo newfag

Lmfao "veteran in csgo" bro I play since 1.3. entry is only supposed to get max. one kill per round or give good info, main AWP needs to get more than 0.5kpr, thorin explained in one of his videos that being an entry sucks because 2nd entry and AWPer look down on you for not getting as many kills even though it's simply impossible check ur facts.

U played since cs 1.3??? If u played since cs 1.3 ,u wont even say "i think entry fragger is not to get kills" nice try in lying,pathetic hitler son dog,u said entry is supposed to get one max kill which already contradict ur initial sentence,and the second entry and awper does not look down on the entry fragger cause he is the most important in the team,check ur facts in sadokist and thorin vids,ez fake liar german dog

Actually he's supposed to replace Relyks, but I'm hoping eUnited do super well here, especially Relyks so they decide to keep him, and Cooper can go back to Swole Patrol where he belongs with his brother.
