FURIA breeze past Envy to reach first-ever Major

FURIA have booked a spot in IEM Katowice's New Challengers Stage after beating Envy 2-0 in the Americas Minor's elimination match.

The final Americas Minor match kicked off with a lopsided game on Overpass, Envys' pick. Anyone watching the game without having checked the veto would have thought that the North Americans did not really favour the map, though, as they broke through FURIA's defence for the first time only ten rounds into the game, and it was because of a great play by Josh "jdm64" Marzano, who picked up two frags in a 2v2 situation following a perfectly-placed smoke.

The Brazilians were unfazed, though, and won the remaining rounds of the half, with Yuri "yuurih" Santos alone sitting on 21 frags - three more than four of Envy's players combined.

Envy then found a lifeline after winning their CT pistol, but their hopes were soon dashed as FURIA hit back immediately on a force buy and followed it up with another round, wrapping things up at 16-2.

FURIA were far too hot for Envy to handle

Next up was Cache, where Envy hopped out to a 2-0 lead on the Terrorist side. A third-round buy from FURIA bore fruits and set the Brazilians up for a three-round streak, but the rest of the half was all about the North Americans' great offence. Any round that FURIA won was quickly countered with a round by Envy, who took a 9-6 lead in part thanks to great clutches by Noah "Nifty" Francis and jdm64.

Finn "karrigan" Andersen's troops further added to their lead after taking the pistol round and the subsequent anti-eco, but then things fell apart for the North American side. FURIA took control of proceedings once they had money to work with and went on a massive run, winning ten rounds in a row en route to a 16-11 finish.

With NRG it was difficult for BR´s. We have INTZ with two new players who had only 10 pracc´s days. Even TeamOne could easily beat Envy if didn´t choke so hard in that Overpass. But, congratz to all and gl for Envy on Minor Playoff.

2019-01-26 19:13
secondary t2 team from BR losing to the best NA team is acceptable but... t2 vs t2 NA = 16x2 OMEGALUL #ez4br #NRGOD #dapsGOD top 1 #kscerato>NACS #thecryisfree
2019-01-26 19:15
NRG is 3rd best in NA - Furia is 2nd best in BR. NRG much, much better than Furia = NA > BR by faaaaaar. Beating the 10th best NA team isnt really that impressing (with a stand-in aswell btw). On top of that: the team with most 0-16 results out of all pro teams = mibr :)
2019-01-26 19:18
NA scene: since csgo is out, full confortable having the best orgs, the more money, confortable state, as the tournments are close, etc BR cs, got in the real scene in 2015 compare br scene in terms of titles, and NACS in terms of titles :> key games, key finals, brs humiliated NA way more and never forget, immortals won a lan against nip in sweden, before NACS got any big lan title against europeans #neverforget #thesaltytears #RUNSKG #felpthebrazilianfer
