fnatic take down MIBR; to face Virtus.pro in Flashpoint 2 upper bracket final

After a marathon on Overpass and a sprint on Vertigo, fnatic secured a 2-0 victory over the Brazilian side.

A series with two quite different maps took place in the Flashpoint 2 upper bracket semi-final match between fnatic and MIBR, with the Swedes fighting back time after time to secure their map pick, 25-21, and then trouncing the Brazilians 16-4 on their own map pick, Vertigo.

The result sees fnatic reach the upper bracket final where they will face Dzhami "⁠Jame⁠" Ali's Virtus.pro, who took down BIG in their semi-final match. MIBR, who were fined by Flashpoint for a "breach of competitive integrity" shortly before the match, have dropped to the lower bracket where they will take on MAD Lions in an elimination game.

JW and KRIMZ caused issues for MIBR on both maps

Overpass was a highly contested map from the start, albeit fnatic's run to take the 5-4 lead on the Terrorist side did show some promise. However, MIBR pulled it back to keep the score close, 8-7 for the half, before Leonardo "⁠leo_drk⁠" Oliveira stepped up to the plate to push his team into the lead at 12-11.

The Brazilians looked to have the upper hand as the end of regulation neared, but Jesper "⁠JW⁠" Wecksell and Freddy "⁠KRIMZ⁠" Johansson pulled off heroics as the last seven rounds were traded back and forth. Going into overtime, MIBR were again on the edge of victory, but failed to close on a number of map points which fnatic capitalized on to steal away Overpass, 25-21.

Vertigo, a go-to map for MIBR since the new lineup came together, looked anything but comfortable for Vito "⁠kNgV-⁠" Giuseppe and co. in this match. The Brazilians started on the back foot after the disappointing Overpass loss and struggled to shut down JW, who pushed his team to an 8-1 lead swiftly. Not much changed after MIBR got their second round on the T side, as Lucas "⁠LUCAS1⁠" Teles's clutch attempt in the followup was denied by Robin "⁠flusha⁠" Rönnquist. fnatic continued their reign on Vertigo for a convincing victory, 16-4.

I was being sarcastic, man... Valve is worth $2.5 Billion. fnatic is worth about $120 Million. Valve does not give a single fuck about any money that fnatic would give them.

What do you think happens to an employee who makes a PR nightmare for their company? Do you think they just get fired? Do you think they can just pack up and get rehired? There is no one in that company dumb enough to take a bribe (which depending on the amount, would be a felony) to remove someone's VAC ban. Especially a well-known player, where it could be almost explicitly tied to an individual's actions. They could be sued by Valve, they could be fired and black-listed within their occupation, and they could face prison. That all aside, Valve pays their employees pretty well, so I don't imagine most of them would be okay with throwing a good job away for some quick money. Stop talking out of your ass. So we are clear: Valve has a pretty strict policy on VAC bans. They only remove them if there's solid proof, and it's VERY rare that happens.

While you have solid proof for you accusations of bribing and the validity of the Krimz ban? Do share it then!

Logic is not the same as blind accusations you fucking idiot. There's no assumptions there: you take a large bribe you will go to jail if caught, lose your job any many other things. Also, Valve pays their coders 6 figures, pretty sure that's higher than the industry standard. Don't equate your bullshit to mine, I live in reality.

Well played fnatic! When you play a 3rd overtime in the first map of a bo3, it’s almost like a bo1; whoever loses it become so fatigated and mentally broke down that they always play a shitty second map. JW is a fucking beast. Won the series for them.

KRIMZ got vac ban, why is he still playing as a pro?
2020-12-03 22:47
Going to say this again here: mibr will never have a solid tier 1 lineup with these 5. They are all good players, but vsm might be the only consistent of the 5. Which is fine, they had their worst lineup in history before the new one, but some people overestimated their potential due to a surprising start. FURIA's 5 are better overall

fnatic is actually looking pretty good, with small changes they could be a TOP 5 team. It's going to be really interesting match vs Virtus.Pro. MIBR is showing some life left in them, with small changes they could be really good.

Finally the scene becomes more interesting What took you so long jDubs and flusha to get your cheats man wtf Been waiting since so fucking long
