ENCE beat Astralis 2-0 to win BLAST Pro Series Madrid

ENCE won the BLAST Pro Series Madrid stop after taking down Astralis convincingly in a two-map final.

It was a rough evening for Astralis. The Danes were simply outfought and outwitted by an ENCE side that was one step ahead for most of the series, starting on Nuke, where the Finnish side put in a masterclass of a performance to deny their opponents from reaching a record-tying 32nd consecutive LAN victory. Train was a much closer affair, but ENCE came back from a 0-5 deficit to come out victorious with a great CT side.

Astralis are now two events in a row without a trophy, and while talk of crisis may be a bit premature, the top spot in the rankings seems to be very much up for the taking, with No.2 Liquid having two LAN events on the horizon - cs_summit 4 and DreamHack Masters Dallas - before the Danes return to action, at the ECS Season 7 Finals.

ENCE opened the game on Nuke with the intention of making an early statement, putting Astralis on the back foot with a string of six rounds. The Danish team responded on a shoddy buy and followed that up with another round, but any hopes that they had of wearing down the ENCE defense were quickly extinguished.

With Jani "Aerial" Jussila wreaking havoc outside with the AUG, the Finnish team kept Astralis in check, limiting the No.1 team in the world to just four rounds in the half.

Now playing on the highly-favored CT side, Astralis took the pistol round following an intense 2v2 situation. After some questionable buy decisions from ENCE, the Finnish side responded in the fourth round of the half, and then Jere "sergej" Salo came up huge with a 1v2 clutch, putting his team in control of the game and destroying Astralis' economy.

ENCE rode that momentum all the way to map point at 15-7. Astralis still tried to respond, but after a couple of close rounds, the Finnish team finally sealed the deal, inflicting the Danes their first Nuke defeat on LAN since the ECS Season 4 Finals, in December 2017.

ENCE were far too hot for Astralis in the series

Having lost their precious Nuke pick, Astralis were out for blood and raced to a 5-0 start on Train with a solid defence, with Nicolai "device" Reedtz raising eyebrows in the third round with a 1v3 clutch. ENCE were forced to call a timeout in a bid to halt Astralis' momentum, getting on the board in the following round thanks to a quad kill by Aerial.

That round victory immediately put Astralis on the back foot in terms of the economy, which ENCE took to their advantage. Apart from a brief period in which Astralis bagged two rounds in a row, the Finnish team dictated the tempo of the game for the remainder of the half, which ended with only one round separating the two sides.

Astralis came out of the break with a bang, further adding to their lead with a near-flawless pistol. However, the complexion of the game immediately changed once ENCE had money in the bank. The Finnish team set up a water-tight defence and lost just one more round before reaching championship point at 15-11. With no margin for error, Astralis dug deep in search of an equalizer, but the sturdy ENCE defense prevailed in the end as the Finns hammered the final nail into their opponents' coffin on a very weak buy.

BIG ended Astralis era when they beat them on Inferno! I thought Astralis wanted to focus on Blast events??? ENCE too good or Astralis just unprepared? This might be the first time we see an NA team at top 1 (lol) GG!

That’s true but also they deserve to play in them. I’m not sure if they were invited to be a frequent attenderand turned it down or if they just weren’t invited. But overall as an Astralis fan, I’m glad to see more and more teams being able to push Astralis to the limits and even beat them! GG

thank you to mention that, I see I had a little bit of mistake regard to adding the precondition of matches are in Grand final but that one happened in the group stage, probably no one cared about the outcome and Faze might be a fluke like a transient, moreover have none of the influence for Astrails to secure the grand final as what a pity of Faze lost to Liquid in the semi-final, therefore have no chance to continue their romaunt

The greatest era in CS:GO history, perhaps all of CS history gone with a whimper. All the Astralis players are going to look back and say to themselves "what if we went to Starseries, and IEM Sydney, and Dreamhack Dallas instead of all of those Blast Pro Series events that RFRSH paid us handsomely for?" Their era would be that much greater. Travel times to Sydney and Shanghi are annoying, and Device does have serious health issues, but I can't see a good reason to skip out on Dallas.
2019-05-11 22:43
+ 1000 U r right on the money (literary speaking). BLAST is a great show but BO1s and tons of games in one day just ramp up the randomness of everything, which is NOT to Astralis advantage.
2019-05-12 02:22
CS history is all about prestige. An example would be the prize pools at the majors won by Fnatic and Astralis respectively. Fnatic won 3 majors with a prize pool of $250K each, and Astralis won 3 majors with a prize pool of $1mil each. Are Astralis' majors valued more because of the prize pool, or who they had to beat in the event to make it to that champion spot? Victories decide the era, not the salary.

2019-05-12 03:26
NiP's record remains. According to the former teammates this is due to the fact that Astralis "didn't have Fifflaren in vent".
2019-05-12 22:03
Cuz they almost never lose finals it is big deal always even if it is lesser event, not to mention now there is whole blastralis era ending discussion going as they do not go other organizers events and lose 2 blasts in a row while at it... Also this year they already lost to liquid too, remember that being made rly big deal also even if the event was total joke xdd.

This is so true. They're still dominant, regardless of a loss or two. Ence just played better and hit their shots, whereas Astralis didn't. They were better on the day, plain and simple. I doubt Astralis will be out of top1 anytime soon though.

ENCE isn't part of the Blast circuit and they haven't skipped any events besides WESG, ever. They weren't invited to Sydney, and they've had "place-filler" invitations to Sao Paolo and Madrid.

Well with this win, it should be enough to be noticeable for esl/iem or dh t1 tourneys.

Yeah they were on the t1 radar even before this one - it was just a Blast, after all. I suppose Sydney invites were just sent so very long ago. I'm quite sure it's up to ENCE whether or not they will attend IEM Chicago and ESL One NY, for example.

I've never said this before, but ... EZ 4 ENCE? I feel like this constant spam made this true like fortune telling or something

Finals are only for the teams that signed a contract with blast at the beginning of the season.

but still, ENCE lose to NIP this tournament
2019-05-12 17:05
BO1 games.. Just because nip won 1 map against ence doesnt mean they would win a BO3
2019-05-12 22:43
yep i know, i mean they could be more perfect if they didn't lose to NIP, it would be a full win at blast-pro-series. and nobody would say allu is the problem.

And people still say Ence had a fluke. And yes it is a big thing, Astralis dominated Nuke this far. This was Ence's revenge for the streak they had and for the matches before this one.

2019-05-12 14:46
Bad day for him, he's been underperforming lately.
2019-05-12 18:32
astralis just looked very lost there, not many times they got good clutch positions honestly :x, maybe some kudos for ence shutting them down also tho...

don't get me wrong, that's not that I hate Astralis, but I'm happy to see Ence to beat Astralis despite beating Na'Vi, coz honestly it got being boring Astralis, Navi, Navi, Astralis and so on. It starts becoming more interesting now to see more than 2 teams at the top.
