Astralis showed dominance on Train (16-5) and extended their unbeaten run on Nuke (16-13) to take down mousesports 2-0 and advance to the semi-finals of IEM Chicago.

mousesports started the game fast, rushing into B with all five to win the Terrorist pistol round on Train. Astralis went for a force buy in hopes of instantly replying, which is less and less common since the economy update, but the European mixture was able to overcome them and go 3-0 up.

In the first buy, Astralis rolled out the double AWP, backed up with a lot of utility, and started putting up a strong defense. They managed six rounds in a row before mousesports were successful in trading out on the B site approach and securing the 3v3, however, their inability to follow it up in the next round, which came down to a 2v2, spelled disaster for the economy of Tomáš "oskar" Šťastný and co.

Andreas "Xyp9x" Højsleth cleaned up the anti-eco with three kills, and in the end, Astralis finished the half 10-5 up. mousesports needed the CT pistol to make a game out of Train, but Emil "Magisk" Reif's double in the Z connector continued the Danes momentum, who closed out the game without a single T round lost, 16-5.

Astralis' Nuke record was in danger in the series against mousesports

After losing the pistol on the CT side of Nuke and going down 3-0, mousesports looked good with the rifles, and won five out of the six following rounds, Miikka "suNny" Kemppi being key to that with his 12 kills and a crucial Ramp hold. (5-4)

Lukas "gla1ve" Rossander's team put an end to mousesports' streak with a fast Secret push, that caught their opponents off guard, and edged out some tight rounds to close out the half with the lead, 8-7. Martin "STYKO" Styk went huge in the pistol round, finding all five opponents, and hist team rolled on to an 11-8 lead off of it. Nicolai "device" Reedtz's quad-kill with the AUG started a streak of rounds going Astralis' way, tieing the score at 11-11, before the Danes lost an anti-eco which saw mousesports take the lead again.

As the map was nearing its end, device came up huge for his side, grabbing an AWP quad-kill from secret, clutching a 1v1 against suNny and then adding two more multikill rounds with the sniper to help his team to a 16-13 win on Nuke.

Device 30 bomb on nuke is the most free I've ever seen, literally 75% of the kills they werent even looking towards his direction.
2018-11-10 01:44
combination of smart positioning and reckless opponent
2018-11-10 01:47
Only the latter component is true here, it was just default positioning.
2018-11-10 01:49
He knew what he was doing, its not easy to always place yourself in a place where you can get multi kills guaranteed He's talented and very smart
2018-11-10 02:13
Dev1ce is probably the most unpredictable awp player an nuke. He's changing his position constantly and you really can't tell where he is until he kills someone.
2018-11-10 02:15
Not only on nuke. Device is a really well utilized awper and smart player.
2018-11-10 02:40
Lmao, guys he wasn’t saying device is bad, just that the 30 bomb wasn’t insane as people like to put it. He played well but nothing incredible
2018-11-10 08:16
We're not criticising someone, just mention, that he is one of the most flexiable awp player in the whole game
2018-11-10 09:57
I agree with them right?
2018-11-10 11:02

nice meme poland mouz would have lost 16-0 on both maps
2018-11-10 02:21
Allu would've went 0-X in all maps (x = amount of rounds played)
2018-11-10 02:41
Train was terrible from mouz, but on Nuke Astralis was lucky af, still deserved win.
2018-11-10 02:22
i didnt see anything but the last 3 rounds of nuke I assume that basically sums up how train went?
