fnatic eliminate Astralis to book first grand final slot in Malmö

fnatic are the first finalists of DreamHack Masters Malmö following a 2-0 semi-final victory over Astralis.

The first semi-final commenced on Overpass, where fnatic accrued an immediate three-round lead off the back of a productive T-side pistol round. Jesper "⁠JW⁠" Wecksell did his utmost on the Danes' first full buy by landing a triple kill, but was unable to deny Astralis their first round in the end. This small victory subsequently turned into mounting momentum, as the offense struggled to put up a fight, allowing the opposition their first lead of the map. A Krieg triple kill from Ludvig "⁠Brollan⁠" Brolin ensured the opposition's advantage was short-lived and inspired his teammates to convert all but one of the remaining rounds for a 9-6 T-side conclusion.

A well-timed backstab from JW saw three Astralis members dispatched and ensured the second pistol round for fnatic. A bold force buy from the Astralis offense proved effective and saw the following three rounds fall their way, but long-term results were not achieved off the back of this momentum coup, as fnatic cruised to map point, ensured by yet another Krieg triple kill from Brollan. The home-crowd favourites kept things tight and their map pick was secured with a convincing 16-9 scoreline.

JW posted a 1.41 rating on Overpass, highlighting his impact on the map

Map two, Nuke, saw another pistol round fall the way of fnatic, as Brollan was able to stick a 1v1 smoke defuse against Peter "⁠dupreeh⁠" Rasmussen on the B site. A strong defensive campaign ensued for the Swedes, as an immediate six-round lead was accrued, witnessing two triple kills from JW on the Scout and AWP. Round seven was a pivotal moment in the initial half, as Astralis finally found their first conversion on the T side. Momentum was maintained by the offense, and with footing secured, the Danes managed to close the round discrepancy to a single round. Despite the gap-closer, fnatic maintained composure in the concluding rounds, finishing 9-6 with yet another Krieg triple kill from the young Brollan.

The Swedes maintained their flawless pistol round record on the T side of affairs, but contrary to their previous performance, the team was only able to accrue two consecutive rounds before retaliation came from Astralis. A force-buy victory in round 18 started a string of victories that meant another significant gap closer at 11-12, achieved in large thanks to outstanding AWPing from Nicolai "⁠device⁠" Reedtz.

Despite a loss on Nuke, device topped the server with a 1.46 rating

While promising, the comeback effort proved to be but a stint, as fnatic found solutions that allowed the Swedes conversions in four of the five following rounds, thus producing map and series points. Astralis persevered against the odds, and off the back of a successful force buy were able to maintain the pressure, ensuring overtime.

Overtime #1 saw the teams exchange 2-1 CT-side performances, with Astralis narrowly dodging elimination, prevented thanks to a step-up from device. The second batch of additional rounds saw the exact same outcome, and only in the third overtime was the map settled, ultimately going the way of fnatic at 25-23, courtesy of crucial double kills from Maikil "⁠Golden⁠" Selim and JW.

I'm not saying that this is the course of their loss because is wasn't, but hearing the fans yelling "boooooh" every a fnatic player spotted someone from astralis through smoke or a wall, was very sad to see, i think its time for the event managers to put up booths, because man am i tired of this being a possibility for the players to win a round off.
2019-10-05 18:34
Compared to other events. this crowd is very quiet. Stop making stupid excuses. Astralis sucked and fnatic were the deserving winner.

fnatic won Astralis' pick - a map they lost to NiP less than 24 hours before this game. So yeah, Astralis sucked. Could've won if Magisk was on god mode but he wasn't. Fnatic was simply better in aim duels.

I never said anything about astralis being the better team in the match, and as i said "this didnt course their loss" but still, you cant deny that the crowd at ESL NY coursed trouble, and they also did this at Malmö, astralis played bad im not gonna lie, but dont come here and tell me that booths doesnt work you idiot. I dont care if it's a lan, and a booth wont ruin that experience.
2019-10-07 08:38
Well, the booths don't really block out all the noise either. Remember Gratisfaction flipping out at the crowd in China because they were calling out his position? It all depends on the proximity crowd to the main stage. Small venues will have the crowd closer to the stage and not even a booth can drown out the noise. Pretty sure Astralis have that advantage too when they play in Denmark. Not really that big of an issue as you're making it out to be.
2019-10-08 12:25
Booths don’t work anyway. Wtf are you talking about? It’s apart of LAN, always has been, always will be.

2019-10-05 18:14
You seem to not grasp the fact that CS is a spectator sport. Entertainment is crucial. Astralis are fucking boring to watch.
2019-10-05 19:21
If you find Astralis boring, then you are a retard with a low attention span. Too stupid to appreciate the amount of time and effort that goes into playing CS at such a high level. Your problem should be with the rest of the scene for being shitters, not with Astralis simply for playing at a higher level. It may be a spectator sport but at the end of the day it's about winning, and when they were at their peak they were doing a lot of it.
2019-10-05 19:23
Or maybe you are too stupid to realize all the fuck they do is train on bullshit maps nobody plays to have 1 in the bag. First it was nuke till they forced everyone else to play it, then when they started losing on that they went to vertigo. On top of that the fuckers were using nvidia exploits to see enemies in smoke.
2019-10-06 06:16
That's surely why they've won 3 majors in a row, cuz of an Nvidia exploit from 2017

Although his stats were not that impressive, he was leading very well and the frags he made were calm and of a lot of impact. In this series he was more valuable than flusha for sure.

Great to see fnatic on their way back to old form, that was needed for the competitive scene ! Astralis Na’Vi fnatic Liquid Vitality EG , each and every one of them now is capable of winning anyone , finally the scene is more competitive, well played fnatic - now prove us it’s not a fluke and perform well next event as well.

Tbh even tho astralis lost and liquid made no finals now. They still are the two best Teams rn. astralis did win major easily, made second in new york and now only 3rd-4th. No other team has better results than this

2019-10-05 19:22
If JW and Flusha get going again... this lineup can be ez top 5 or even top 3...
2019-10-05 19:24
If they get together and Golden keeps getting impactful frags like in this match, then Fnatic can easily become #1 like they were in the past.
2019-10-06 00:04
Nah dont overhype them too much They will crumble against teams like Liquid EG. Navi or Vitality, cuz they actually have firepower.. Astralis just played kinda scared and were caught off-guard by fnatics random pushes
2019-10-06 01:46
Lol, Astralis is going back to choke mode once again. Danish teams and choke.

perhaps i think they are so tired or they are just manipulating the results..... but perhaps... perhaps... perhaps... EG was playing really awesome on sunday on monday they are trash but perhaps.... Astralis they are "robots" so they always do the impossible this guy i will never doubt . Liquid after the major they are not the some looks like they have been bullied by astralis but perhaps... Brazil are sux at the scene now.... but perhaps we could be in top5 again soon.... perhaps perhaps perhaps
