BIG defeat fnatic to book cs_summit 6 upper bracket final spot

The German team will move on to face Vitality for their second consecutive grand final appearance.

BIG are through to the upper bracket final of cs_summit 6 Europe following a convincing victory over fnatic in two maps. The DreamHack Masters Spring champions continued their good run of form as they held off a team sitting two places above them in the rankings despite an impressive performance from Ludvig "⁠Brollan⁠" Brolin, who had on Overpass his highest rating of the year (1.95).

The Germans were on the front foot from the off on Overpass, racing to a 3-0 lead and then staying ahead after a period of pressure from fnatic. A sneaky defuse by Florian "⁠syrsoN⁠" Rische in a 1v2 situation was a heavy blow for the Swedes, but they kept their composure and ended the half in the lead thanks to some stellar rounds by Brollan, who had 19 kills to his name.

XANTARES topped the scoreboard as BIG defeated fnatic

The Swedish youngster continued his one-man crusade in the second half with more stunning individual plays, including a 1v3 clutch, as he desperately tried to keep fnatic in the game during a keenly-contested period of the game. Rounds continued going both ways as neither side managed to stamp their authority on proceedings, but then a stunning clutch from Nils "⁠k1to⁠" Gruhne turned the tide in BIG's favor, setting the team up for a 16-13 finish.

Nuke began with fnatic taking the lead, but there was no follow-up as BIG responded immediately and took control of the game. Johannes "⁠tabseN⁠" Wodarz's troops rallied to a 5-1 lead and put together another string of rounds late in the half to secure a 9-6 score. After switching sides, the Swedes still attempted a comeback, but their hopes were crushed once BIG had money in the bank as they went on a dominant 7-1 run to extend their winning streak on Nuke to seven games.

To be fair, BIG only started to look promising in the beginning of the year. They definitely improved overall as a team, you can't say who will actually perform well on LAN right now.
2020-07-01 22:11
where they was on LANs???
2020-07-01 22:12
Looking back on the times when LANs were available, BIG were an underdeveloped team

Oh yeah, so why no one (no pros, influencers, admins etc.) noticed him "cheating" but you had? Stfu dude, at least I believed that you were baiting but I was probably wrong, since you don't really have that much of IQ to bait.

BotW whole series, it was a 4v6 for fnatic
2020-07-01 21:57
big is an excellent example how important the map pool is. it`s very difficult to outmaneuver them. I think the map picking is one of the most determing factors in the game, also psychologically. if you go in a bo3 and you cant pick a map with a clear advantage for you, a bo3 is way more mental challenging!

BIG is great, I think it's just the matter of time before they will enter TOP 5. fnatic can be solid TOP 5 team, but I don't think they will be fighting for the biggest tittles with this roster.
2020-07-01 23:45
BIG finally living up to their potential and giving german CS the team they deserved for years. I expect them to continue performing the same way once it goes back to LAN. They are here to stay.

why do people like you talk about stuff they don't fully know? this is a -NEW- line-up, talk about their results not of the results from other teams of the past. this team exists since the beginning of the year. THIS line-up won ALL their lan matches this year, they attended 2 LANS (DH Leipzig and Flashpoint LA qualy) and they WON BOTH.

Nah man i didnt say your dumb, hope you are not offended. But your argument was silly, since BIG have a new lineup in 2020 and won every LAN event they have been on, hence the mentioning of bullshit talk. Btw dont mistake "blind fandom" with one click in your profil preferences.
