Winstrike crush Envy in Katowice

After beating Envy 16-4 on Overpass, Winstrike have booked their spot in the IEM Katowice Minor Play-in upper bracket final, where they will take on ViCi.

Overpass was the map of the match between Winstrike and Envy, and it started with the Russians picking up their Terrorist pistol on the back of a triple-kill from Aurimas "Kvik" Kvakšys in a 2v4 situation. After building up their economy, Josh "jdm64" Marzano and co. responded with a flawless gun round in which the American AWPer found a clean triple-kill, 1-3.

However, Envy were immediately reset by Winstrike, who saw their youngster David "n0rb3r7" Danielyan add a quick trio of kills to his name. Kirill "Boombl4" Mikhailov's troops would not back down from that moment, and went on to take a 8-1 lead.

wayLander led the way for his team with 29 frags

In part thanks to jdm64 stepping up to the plate, Envy managed to win a trio of consecutive rounds to reduce the deficit to 4-8, but that was all she wrote for them in the first half.

With a clean quad-kill from Kvik in B, Winstrike won their second pistol, forcing Finn "karrigan" Andersen to instantly call for a tactical pause. Still, Envy simply could not find a way through Winstrike's defense, with the Russian squad eventually sealing the deal with a flawless CT side, 16-4.

2019-01-27 15:30
Winstrike is the new Flipsid3... they get to the major while playing very well but the other tournaments they’re invited to they terribly underperform.
2019-01-27 15:32
Winstrike has potential to do alot in major tho, they become legends 1st time they got there, and probably will do it again atleast once. While f3 from 2015 never fought for high spots in major,and were too late to change roster, while Ws changed right after failure. Will see, how they play from now on.
2019-01-27 16:01
I see all the CIS teams going through the first stage and maybe even avangar to the top 8, maybe that's to optimistic but all the CIS teams looked good
2019-01-27 16:03

I did, since you are so mad at an american team, that kicked out brazilian teams from the major qual, then it seemed pretty logical. But if you dont care about that, then i dont get why you care so much about Envy playing poorly now^^
2019-01-27 14:18
first that I was not cheering for any team other than FURIA, I just think envyus is one of the most horrible teams that ever logged on to a server, and that I think they got too far
