FURIA prevail over Vitality to book DH Masters Spring playoff spot

The Brazilian team have completed their lower bracket run to lock down a quarter-final place.

FURIA have secured a quarter-final playoff spot at DreamHack Masters Spring after taking down Vitality 2-0 in Group B’s lower bracket final, eliminating the French side in the process. The Brazilian team now awaits the loser of Gambit and Natus Vincere in the first round of the playoffs, which is scheduled to take place on Friday.

After securing a confident victory on Vertigo, Kaike "⁠KSCERATO⁠" Cerato and co. had work to do when they found themselves against the odds on Nuke, especially after losing the second half pistol. In typical FURIA style, the Brazilian squad was hyper-aggressive with numerous A site hits, which proved crucial to flipping the map on its head. "I had a feeling when we started playing the T side rounds that they would focus on lower a lot," Andrei "⁠arT⁠" Piovezan said in the post-match interview. "I thought we could exploit their setup, and it worked."

KSCERATO had 37 kills and 108.8 ADR on Nuke

Kévin "⁠misutaaa⁠" Rabier opened up Vertigo with a pistol triple kill on the way to a 4-0 start on the CT side, but FURIA got their first round on the board in the fifth and put together a streak of their own in reply. The Brazilians won the vast majority of the remaining rounds in the half to lead 9-6 at the midway point despite a red-hot Mathieu "⁠ZywOo⁠" Herbaut posting a 21-7 K-D. Vitality kicked off their offence brightly to bring the deficit to a solitary round before FURIA readjusted and tightened up their defence to confidently shut down the Frenchmen and secure the map 16-10.

Vitality came out on Nuke with a blistering pace to overwhelm FURIA and claim a 5-1 advantage. ZywOo looked to have added another to his team’s tally if not for a 1v2 clutch from arT, which initiated a run of rounds that tied up the score. The Dan "⁠apEX⁠" Madesclaire-led side refused to let their opponents find any more success and hit a higher gear to edge ahead, with the increased intensity resulting in a 9-6 difference at the break.

The French squad made it four pistol round victories from four in the series to extend their lead, but FURIA responded instantly to prevent the map getting away from them. KSCERATO and arT spearheaded a deadly offence for a 14-11 advantage before Vitality snatched two back in their favour and a Richard "⁠shox⁠" Papillon 1v2 levelled the score. The final two rounds were traded in a nail-biting ending to regulation as overtime was needed to determine a winner. KSCERATO continued his impactful performance into overtime, where he added eight more kills to his tally on the way to a 19-17 victory.

How is zywoo supposed to play with an igl who malds so much that it makes the joker look sane, and the so called veteran who should be the voice of calm and reason but tilts and shows almost as much frustration as the igl ? Misutaa and kyojin are somewhat new and young players so yeah they'll probably take flak for having bad games or not fragging. But surely the way apex and shox react when they start losing can't help their confidence right?
2021-05-02 16:47

It has always been a huge problem with Apex sadly. Times are changing though and organizations are actively looking for players who doesn't have/show those "attributes" or tendencies.
2021-05-02 17:42
1 reply
Thing is, I don't even mind IGLs yelling once in a while. Sometimes it's needed to get players going and sort of telling them to step up their bloody game. But the frequency with which Apex malds is so frustrating to watch. Both him and Shox who are the veterans are supposed to be the leaders/experience of this team. I don't know if you follow Dota2, but OG is the perfect example of what insane Mental strength looks like. The number of times those guys made comebacks in the biggest games on the biggest stages was insane.

Imagine being the young/new players and seeing the so called IGL and veteran just malding and tilting. I wouldn't blame them for not being able to frag in such games where the 2 are just constantly yelling :/
2021-05-02 20:24
yeah, just think about when you're playing and some of your teammates get themself killed and start to scream at the mic "shit, the crazy guy just rush the smoke, faaaaack........... he is in mid", you're already dead when they tell you the position of the enemy. And sometimes it really occurs with vitallity

Yeah that's a horrible way to die. And definitely wouldn't help someone like Kyojin (maybe even Misutaa) who would probably be nervous given the stakes of the match.

Good win for FURIA, but still they lack firepower a lot to compete with T1. Vitality is lacking firepower outside of ZywOo aswell, but they are also making a lot of mistakes mid round, and overall they are in shambles rn.

Furia doesn't lack firepower, they lack experience to play the game more tactically, and make good mid round calls.

They lack firepower aswell, they should get some good AWPer, also you are right, their strategical point of the game is honestly trash, and overall even on paper this roster isn't that good, changes are needed.

you are right when you say that most Argentines are racists, at this point I agree with you ... but this must be fought and the best way to do that is to try to bring Brazil and Argentina closer together, 9Z for example even though Argentine hired player and Brazilian coach, Isurus hired Kaike at the time, and TRY looks like a good guy, I think he deserves a better team and would serve very well for several Brazilian teams, mainly because the Argentine teams are weak in CS but, they have some talents. ..
