FURIA run over 100 Thieves to win ESL Pro League S12 North America

After a quick grand final (1-0 default, 16-7 Vertigo, 16-10 Inferno), FURIA secured the ESL Pro League trophy, their third title of the "online era".

The grand final match was a straight-forward affair, with 100 Thieves coming in from the lower-bracket with a one map disadvantage and their pick of Vertigo backfiring heavily. The Brazilian side pulled out a yet-unseen boost on the professional scene which helped them to a 16-7 victory, with the Australians showing a bit more on Inferno, but not enough to stop FURIA's dynamic CT side.

With this victory, FURIA have ended Evil Geniuses' streak of three tournaments won in North America, with Andrei "⁠arT⁠" Piovezan and co. adding a third trophy to their cabinet this year, after previously winning DreamHack Masters Spring and DreamHack Open Summer.

Despite an uninspired grand final showing, the Australian side can be content with their lower-bracket run in the tournament, which saw them eliminate Evil Geniuses and Liquid, and place second after a series of underwhelming events.

FURIA take the Pro League title with a resounding grand final victory

A 4-1 T-side start for 100 Thieves bode well for the Australian team's chances on the opening map, Vertigo, but their fortunes changed soon. FURIA bounced back and equalized the score at 4-4 after utilizing a yet-unseen three-man boost on the ramp towards A, with Yuri "⁠yuurih⁠" Santos picking up a quad kill in the round.

The Brazilians were on the roll from that point, losing just one round before ending the half 10-5 up. Aaron "⁠AZR⁠" Ward's men managed to win the CT pistol, but were put on the back foot again swiftly as arT found a double entry on the force buy. FURIA kept putting on the pressure on the offense and secured the map soon, 16-7.

The fast-pace T-side of FURIA was back on the menu on Inferno, where 100 Thieves got a 2-0 start, but struggled to hold off the Brazilians in consecutive rounds until the final parts of the half. Joakim "⁠jkaem⁠" Myrbostad's double set them up for a force-buy win to make it 5-5, with the scoreline 9-6 in their favor before the half-time switch.

Kaike "⁠KSCERATO⁠" Cerato and yuurih turned around a 3v5 on A in the pistol, putting down the foundations for FURIA's CT comeback. The Brazilian side was quick on their feet, rotating preemtively and making aggressive moves to bog down 100 Thieves' approaches. With just one CT side lost, FURIA finished the map convincingly, 16-10.

EU right now is a rollercoster. Furia looks more consistent i would even say that EG looks more consistent.
2020-09-27 21:14
i agree, EU is the better region sure but all the best teams there are fluctuating on performance too much, furia is probably the most consistent team right now.
2020-09-27 21:16
Thats what i mean. You look at them performing and most of time you get strong hiper agro team, its not like for example Heroic that likes to choke hard from time to time or Vitality for that matter.
2020-09-27 21:20

If there's double elimination, lower, upper bracket and stuff, so it has to have 1 map advantage to upper bracket. But it would be better to get rid of double elimination in any play-offs, all play-offs should be single elimination.
2020-09-27 21:35
only top was double, liquid/100T was single elim. so that was the advantage from the groups, that should be the only advantage give.

Glad 100T pulled off the upsets of Team Liquid and EG to get spanked 3-0 to Furia. Nice job taking the spot of one of the two teams that actually had a chance lol very pointless

2020-09-27 21:17
Your point? Furia was already locked in so why would they try hard in group stage. Liquid just fucked them not long ago and EG always fucks them lmao 100T took a spot and put up 0 fight. I know you are slow but you cant be that slow to think that

Liquid just fucked them not long ago" this is online era you idiot , no team is consistent. EG was steam rolling everyone in last few events , got clapped by 100T and Furia twice in this "EG always fucks them" , maybe you ought to check the results of their two matches this event ? or does the little kid wants his hand handled and guided to there because he is too young to manage such a simple task ? grow up , learn to mind how the game works then come barking here
2020-09-27 21:30
I love how you go on to say "this is an online era nothing is consistent" then you go on two say "look at the trend the past 2 tournaments vs Furia" so is it consistent being online or not smooth brain? Lmao cause if conistency doesnt matter then why count EG out like they dont have a chance cause of the past 2 events. But if consitancy does matter go look at the past 12 tournaments where before these 2 tournaments EG beat Furia 9-0. (Those consist of online too not just lan which is more valuable). You act like you know a lot and then go on to say look at the facts and then contradict yourself. I did the research and it looks like you proved me right yeah EG (21-7 vs Furia) had a WAYYYY better chance to win then 100T (10-7 vs Furia). Furia a majority of the time gets spanked by EG. Sounds like you need to learn how the game works and how to do a little research fucking idiot LMAO make up your mind with that argument too that help you look like simple. Get memed on

2020-09-29 11:36
hello your xenophobic and ignorant, just letting you know here that they asked ESL about the boost before the match, and they said that they could use it 8 coaches were brazilians, 2 of them banned by not reporting the bug, not for abusing. /closed
