OG take revenge on MIBR to move on to Flashpoint 2 consolidation final

The international team will face fnatic on Sunday for a spot in the grand final.

OG took down MIBR 2-1 in the lower bracket final of Flashpoint 2 to claim revenge for Tuesday's defeat in the opening round of the playoffs. The first two maps were the same, though the pattern was reversed as OG ran out winners on Nuke before MIBR hit back on Inferno, where Vinicius "⁠vsm⁠" Moreira and Vito "⁠kNgV-⁠" Giuseppe combined for 41 frags.

The Brazilian AWPer racked up 37 frags on the decider map as MIBR battled back from a 7-1 deficit and took the game the full distance, though his efforts were not enough as the team made a flurry of mistakes in the second half that were capitalised on by OG. It is the end of their European journey, and while they largely exceeded expectations during their short time together, they will be kicking themselves for the shocking blunders that cost them the series and the spot in the consolidation final.

The match began at a frantic pace as neither side managed to assume control during the early stages of Nuke, MIBR's choice of map. The Brazilians then managed to get a foothold in the game as they put some rounds together to take a 5-2 lead, but the rest of the half was dominated by OG.

OG moved past MIBR in a three-map affair

Aleksi "⁠Aleksib⁠" Virolainen's charges continued to add to their lead after switching to the T side and brought the scoreline to 12-9. MIBR then put their foot down to hold back their opponents, but their efforts would be in vain: OG kept the pressure on - even halting the Brazilians' momentum on a shoddy buy - and strung three rounds together en-route to a comfortable victory, with Nathan "⁠NBK-⁠" Schmitt delivering the finishing blow with a quad-kill to end the game on 23 frags.

MIBR had looked shaky on Inferno in the previous encounter between the two teams, but they were a completely different side this time around. Led by a fired-up vsm, the Brazilians came out with all guns blazing as they stormed to a 10-1 lead on the CT side. OG still put together some rounds before the side switch to keep themselves in the game, but their comeback hopes were immediately dashed: nothing went their way in the second half as MIBR enjoyed a spell of dominance and won several clutch situations, putting the game away without even losing a single round.

A Train decider seemed like daunting task for MIBR, who had played this map just once, a 16-5 thrashing by G2 in the BLAST Premier Fall Series a month ago. They were shut out during the early stages of the game as they found themselves trailing by six rounds but managed to find their rhythm as the half wore on. They won a couple of close rounds to wreak havoc on OG's economy and bring the deficit to a solitary round before the break.

MIBR won the following pistol in convincing fashion but then disaster struck as they were shockingly caught off-guard by a full eco. It took them some time to recover from that setback but they refused to throw in the towel and kept clawing their way back into the game with force-buys. In the end, however, a comeback was not on the cards as OG locked down the final round of regulation on a very weak buy, rubbing further salt into the Brazilians' wounds.

HEN1 is enjoying a lot more success individually and as a group than he would if he were to join your roster. Steel is playing VALORANT and enjoying himself. Fox is teaching and inspiring young talent from Iberia. V$M is an amazing player that deserves a second chance. There are murderers who take someone's life and get less time. Leo is a great player who is an up and coming young talent. Trk is the same as Leo. You're just mad that these players came together on what might of been short notice, with barely any practice, and are making a name for themselves individually and as a team. Get over it, enjoy the Counter Strike, and stop being toxic.

Furia has reached the limit with this composition, here either you need to make point replacements or there will be a sharp decline, remember the same Virtus Pro, Mibr, etc. Therefore, the following substitutions should be made: - Art (Let's call him the playstyle of not the smartest person, and this more and more often does not work, that sometimes he ends up matches with statistics of minus 20 and this is no good. And as practice has shown, he is not flexible, but what Furia lack to climb onto Olympus.) - Vini (Nice boy, always smiling, but a good person is not a profession. He can play with a positive kda only on Inferno, otherwise there is no gate for a potential top 1) - Guerri (Why do they need a person with the stigma of a cheater it's time to close this dark page and start a new one in the hope of bright times) Make Kscerato the sixth player because he's clearly underplayed lately. Maybe motivation problems? Then the bench will help him + Lucas (So Hen1 won't be sad. It will also give the brothers the motivation to get better every day. After all, this will add rivalry between each other and this, as practice shows, always leads to a positive outcome.) + Taco (Because a team needs a good guy and make him igl. After so many years of playing alongside the legends, he probably has accumulated a lot of ideas and experience, the main thing is to give him confidence and the result will not be long in coming ) + Fer (At the right moments, such tough guys are needed so that milk-drinkers didn't relax.In addition, he is already a real man who has mountains of experience behind him. Life always threw it out, but he still got up and walked on. They can always turn to him on life and everyday issues, he will always share his experience. In terms of playing qualities, there have never been questions about his playful form. He will always score his positive rating ) + Fallen (Coach. Super experience and maximum respect from the entire Csgo community. What else does it take to be the best coach?) And after they get used to each other, it will take literally from 2 weeks to 2 months, it will be a new death machine that all of Europe will be afraid.

You are thinking on the old way... rating 1.0 was the way you are saying you prefer, but it's not fair at all. The current HLTV rating (rating 2.0) is way more accurate when judging players performance during a match. Entry kills, clutches and multi kills that decides the round are way more important than killing while trying to save your weapon, or getting a single useless kill when you are on a 1v5, etc... the number of frags matter, but THEIR IMPACT matters even more.
2020-12-06 05:33
He only got 3 more kills than nbk. You're looking at the KD only. Also, nbk did a lot more damage per round, just look at ADR. He deserves to be > valde
