fnatic squeeze past NiP in Swedish derby; advance to cs_summit 6 upper-bracket semi-final

A thriller upper-bracket quarter-final between the two Swedish team finished with a tight 2-0 victory for fnatic, who move on to the upper-bracket semi-final of cs_summit 6 over NiP.

The 2-0 series result doesn't tell the full story of the Swedish derby, which was a back-and-forth affair throughout. Neither team tied more than five rounds together over the 65 rounds played, with big clutches and multikill rounds coming out from both sides. Ludvig "⁠Brollan⁠" Brolin ended up being the difference-maker for fnatic, as his three highlight-worthy plays swung Inferno into his team's favor.

fnatic move on to the upper-bracket semi-final of cs_summit 6, where they will face the winner of GODSENT - BIG, while NiP is not out yet, as they will play against the loser of the same match in the lower-bracket.

fnatic came out swinging on Overpass, claiming a 3-0 lead on the CT side before Hampus "⁠hampus⁠" Poser unlocked the defenses with a triple to start NiP's run. The Ninjas were up 7-4 after Fredrik "⁠REZ⁠" Sterner's clutch on A, but fnatic managed to recover at the end of the half, 8-7.

The second half was a full-on brawl, as for the majority of it, neither team managed to tie more than two rounds together, while force-buys and mix-buys reigned supreme. REZ used a saved AK to find a quad kill, Robin "⁠flusha⁠" Rönnquist replied with a HE-CZ entry on B, NiP then got an eco victory, before a mixed-buy opened up A for fnatic. That last round broke NiP's economy, Maikil "⁠Golden⁠" Selim's squad tied three together and reached map point, but were unable to close out in regulation. In overtime, however, they edged out the post plants and claimed their opponent's map pick, 19-17.

Brollan dropped 31 kills on both Overpass and Inferno

Inferno started similarly to Overpass, as fnatic got a 3-0 lead before NiP stabilized with rifles, Tim "⁠nawwk⁠" Jonasson leading the way with the AWP (5-3). After a dominant stretch for NiP, fnatic added three in a row, but a couple of misplays cost them a dominant T-side, seeing the half concluded 8-7 in favor of Björn "⁠THREAT⁠" Pers's squad.

Another 3-0 start for fnatic, now to the second half of Inferno, was followed by an impressive 3K B site hold from Brollan. At a crucial time in the map, NiP recovered an unlikely 2v3 and 4v5 two rounds in a row to get rolling on the offense, tieing the score at 11-11, before Brollan managed another miraculous round, this time a quad kill on A. The youngster added a third big play to his name in round 27, pulling off the smoke defuse in a chaotic B retake, before fnatic closed out the map on an eco, 16-13.

If you trash then don't just say cheats better develop your game rather than pointing someone out and wasting your time and others.

You mean a normal game from Brollan who has been just as good post krieg nerf
2020-06-29 21:43
It's a dig fan. Any dig fan would kill to have a competent player on their roster.
2020-06-29 21:45
They have f0rest and GTR, the two best players of all time, but okay.

It's a fnatic (and Krieglan) fan from Argentina. You expect him to be smart? =)
2020-06-29 22:09
I'm mostly Fnatic, I just hate their new logo. With that being said, I don't get why nationality is an issue. Then again, you are from PORTULUL where y'all still think Fox can play counter strike as an 80 year old so yknow. Makes sense you are a dig fan, you just like dinosaurs.

"I'm mostly Fnatic, I just hate their new logo." K, respect that. "With that being said, I don't get why nationality is an issue." en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stereotypes_of_Arg.. "Then again, you are from PORTULUL where y'all still think Fox can play counter strike as an 80 year old so yknow." I could not find the wikipedia page for Portuguese stereotypes. I don't think Fox can play competitive cs rn. "Makes sense you are a dig fan, you just like dinosaurs." I like Dinossaurs. And I like DIG

I like fnatic but they did fall off after the krief nerf,
2020-06-29 21:46
Not really, their prominent Krieg player has basically same performance. I would rather say that online doesn’t favor fnatic, one of the best LAN teams. And after ESL PL they lost motivation for online and the results reflected.

So they did dip, never said it was due to the krieg nerf. It just happened after the nerf
2020-06-29 21:58
too many other factors that could contribute to their dip other than krieg nerf, for example online play. you can't say they fell off because of the krieg nerf yet, wait till LANS come back.
2020-06-29 22:12
And AGAIN, he never said it was. You are making up stuff he never said.

fnatic can be solid TOP 5 team, however I don't think they will be fighting for the biggest tournaments with this roster. NiP is really good atm.
