fnatic squeeze past MIBR in Odense

fnatic live to fight another day at the ESL Pro League Season 10 Finals after taking down MIBR in a close three-map series.

The Swedish team will move on to Group A's upper bracket final, in which they will play for their tournament life against 100 Thieves. After narrowly beating Heroic in the first lower bracket round, fnatic had to work hard to move past a stubborn MIBR, who may have just played their final match with Lucas "⁠LUCAS1⁠" Teles as the team look to sign Argentinian talent meyern from Sharks ahead of cs_summit 5.

Considering the Brazilians' current predicament, it is difficult not to feel that fnatic's victory was too close for comfort. The Swedes were lackluster from a tactical perspective and thus had to rely on individual talent throughout the series, which went to all three maps as they failed to capitalise on a record-breaking performance from Freddy "⁠KRIMZ⁠" Johansson on Dust2. Ludvig "⁠Brollan⁠" Brolin, who was sitting at the bottom of the scoreboard heading into Vertigo, gave fnatic the edge on the final map after Robin "⁠flusha⁠" Rönnquist had played a key role on Inferno.

The entire first half of Inferno was a scrappy affair: neither team managed to get ahead by more than a couple of rounds as mistakes were made on both sides and the Desert Eagles often reigned supreme. As the game wore on, Jesper "⁠JW⁠" Wecksell picked up the pace on the AWP, but as the half came to an end only one round separated the two sides.

MIBR equalised the score after switching to the T side with a B execute but there was no follow-up as fnatic instantly rallied back on a force buy. The Swedish team took advantage of that momentum and ran away with the game, constantly keeping the Brazilian players at bay en route to a dominant victory on their own map pick, with flusha ending the game with 28 kills to his name.

KRIMZ set a new Big Event record for most kills in regulation on Dust2

fnatic got off to a flying start on Dust2 and raced to a 5-0 lead on the CT side. MIBR then finally got on the board after pushing the A site unopposed, with Fernando "⁠fer⁠" Alvarenga then raising eyebrows with a 1v2 clutch. The Brazilians lost their grip on the game afterwards, allowing fnatic to put together another string of rounds, but, much to everyone's surprise, they narrowed the gap to just one round before the break thanks to a fruitful end to the half.

The second half began in the same manner as that of the previous map as MIBR took the pistol round but failed to capitalise on that. KRIMZ, who had ended the first half with 24 frags, continued his onslaught on the Terrorist side and added 20 more kills to his name, shattering the previous record in a competitive match. Still, his one-man show was not enough to push fnatic over the line as MIBR took control of proceedings in the final stages to force overtime, in which they would come out victorious without too much trouble.

fnatic did not let that setback get to them and enjoyed a promising start full of impetus, this time with Brollan as the main protagonist. The 17-year-old racked up 19 frags on the CT side as the Swedes kept their defense tight and compact, limiting MIBR to just five rounds in the half.

The Brazilians came out of the break a revitalised side and managed to bring the deficit to just one round at 11-12 after a strong start to the half. A comeback would not be on the cards, though, as a quad kill from Brollan put fnatic back in control and initiated a winning streak that culminated with victory for the Swedes.

Cant really blame him;D after such a Performance:D....didnt see the whole match though, maybe he choked hard. But i think he won more rounds like that than he cost them....but ofc for texture book cs that's not acceptable:D
2019-12-05 11:49
He killed 44 in regulation, whole team was choking hard so it's not only his fault that they lost d2

Germany Gabbah
No? Pure skillwise Brollan is better, then all of them, but flusha and krimz have a lot more gamesense than him, which is obvious, because they have played a lot longer at the top level than him. Exspecially flusha, who is, like JW said, the smartest player on that team ingame wise.
2019-12-05 06:55
Yeah krimz only dropped 44 in one map That’s nothing amazing
2019-12-05 07:59
#121
 | 
Germany Gabbah
because aim is the onyl thing, that is the reason you get a kill... flusha is certainly not one of the best aimers, but is considered by many to be one of the best players in CSGO history. Why? Because raw aim is not the only factor in the pro scene. If that would be the case, TenZ would have been the best player in C9 stats wise.
2019-12-05 14:23
You’re saying Brollan is better; essentially agreeing that Brollan is better than krimz, Olof, and flusha. Either you realize this, and want to look like an idiot, or your attention span is really that short. I’ll take krimz over almost everyone aside from flusha Flusha Krimz Brollan Olof

2019-12-05 00:50
i was more talking about people judging pros performance by 1 game. for example; device was playing shit today so if astralis would have lost, you would see a lot of "device washed up, shit player" or something like that. Same with zywho or s0mple - undoubtedly players that can carry and win against anybody 1v9 on good day but yet you still see toxic people spamming shit when they lose)). People just dont get it that you CANT win everything. But yea, taco was never a star player. People excuse his performance by saying he is "support player". Kinda poor excuse if you look at astralis "support" player like glaive or dupreeh
2019-12-05 01:01
True day, but Hltv is like a better twitch chat tbh. From God to bot in one round.

decent performance by mibr but fnatic is the better team here. ggwp
2019-12-04 23:15
Fnatic is struggling on this tournament, meanwhile MiBR might replace a player. It wasn't a good game, a fuck ton of mistakes were made, at the end of the day not the better team but the better individuals won Flusha on the first, Krimz on the second, Brollan on the third.
2019-12-04 23:16
agreed, mostly jw and golden to be honest, many bad peeks by jw and missed the clutch vs taco, and also golden that takes wayyy too much nade damage early rounds
2019-12-04 23:18
Yeah - JW is not in the server right now. Looks frustated and as if he is trying to delete his mistakes with heroic aggressive pushes that never seem to work. Hopefully he is turning up tomorrow. But I mean, it is ok for a team to not show up in bestform to every event and lets not forget that they are still a young team...

Agreed. JW misses lots of easy shots. They didn't check the corners. Not clear the planting sides. Thousands of mistakes like t3 team. I just say that fnatic is better than MIBR. That's why they won today
