Imperial send Cloud9 packing in Antwerp

A triple-overtime Overpass win and a landslide victory on Mirage saw Imperial pull off the massive upset.

Imperial have sent the world's fourth-best team, Cloud9, packing in Antwerp after an impressive performance in a three-map series against the Russian side. The 'Last Dance' squad entered the series with a triple-overtime win on Overpass before falling short on Vertigo, and the best-of-three affair came down to Mirage, where a stalwart defense saw Gabriel "⁠FalleN⁠" Toledo & co. dominate their opponents 16-3.

Imperial are now one series away from the playoffs after getting off to a slow start in the Legends Stage and surviving two consecutive elimination games. They will face off against Copenhagen Flames next in the final do-or-die match, which will determine one of the last three teams advancing to the bracket stage.

Cloud9 have been eliminated from the tournament after what has been a disappointing showing from the team around Vladislav "⁠nafany⁠" Gorshkov. They exit Antwerp with a 1-3 record, with their only win coming against Outsiders in the opening round before they suffered losses to NIP, FaZe, and now Imperial.

fer has been one of the best players of the Legends Stage and he was in great form again in Imperial's biggest victory yet

The series began with a spectacle of a showdown on Overpass, where Imperial have gone undefeated since their inception. The first six rounds weren't much to go by, with Cloud9 getting off to a dominant start, but once Imperial got on the board in the seventh it was clear that it was going to be a competitive affair. And it was so much more.

Key entries and quick trading in entering the A bombsite gave the Brazillians five rounds in the first half, and going into the second a 1v1 clutch from Vinicius "⁠VINI⁠" Figueiredo got them the space to close the gap. Despite letting go of the first few gunrounds, Imperial quickly got back on their feet on the back of a FalleN triple, and the veteran AWPer continued to be a nuisance for the Russian squad on the A site.

Regulation wasn't enough to decide the opener, with a Fernando "⁠fer⁠" Alvarenga clutch at 13-14 denying Cloud9 a late closing. The first two sets of overtime saw Imperial show their resilience, surviving two map points in each, and in the third the Last Dance went undefeated on the defense, courtesy of several impact plays from FalleN, before closing it down 25-23 after a retake situation on B.

Vertigo was up next as Cloud9's trusty pick, and the Russian side equalized the series in relatively comfortable fashion. Imperial stayed competitive in the first half when they were on the CT side, with a pistol round win and a conversion helping them stay within touching distance along with a fer 1v2 later on, but once sides switched it was all about Cloud9.

Abay "⁠HObbit⁠" Khasenov and Timofey "⁠interz⁠" Yakushin both had some key moments on the defense to help even out the series with a convincing second half display, and the match went to Mirage.

Putting together a stalwart defense after a forcebuy win in the second round, Imperial beat back everything Cloud9 threw at them, and even when the rounds came down to a close finish the Brazilians had Ricardo "⁠boltz⁠" Prass and fer to clutch it out. Cloud9 could only muster two more rounds on the T side, which gave them no space for error going into the second half, and there Imperial rallied to a quick 16-3 closing.

Brazilian IQ... So, let me explain to you... One team is placed higher than the other based on the last months results. So, yeah, it is an upset when a team that is much lower than the other in rankings wins... Also, the last months show that one team looks weaker than the other... So, in conclusion, no one hates that Imperial won, maybe just C9 fans... I am really happy that Fallen proves so many people wrong with his team, but you don't have to take everything is said like hate... The guy above just exposed the facts that were before the game... Congrats to Imperial, we are happy that they play at least one more game!

I did that. It is literally how I said before, everything was showing that C9 is the stronger team, so yes, on paper the weaker team won.... He didn't state anywhere that Imperial wasn't better today, he just said it based on what he knew before the game.. Also nice to see so many people watching Gaules, it really shows the passion brazilians have for this game and for their teams. Imperial has a good chance to win against CPH too, and maybe Furia can beat G2 too

1. That is under your first response to him 2. That is under what I responded to you first 2 times 3. Yeah, C9 didn't show their best today and Imperial will still be one of the 'weaker' teams left if they qualify.. That doesn't mean that they can't show otherwise So, yeah, I didn't care about the #241 comment since I was responding to something above it... Idk if the guy got angry, it doesn't really look like that to me... Maybe just the last part where he says "They don't have more talent than Cloud9" shows that he tries to push it too far

I admit I didn't watch last map, but I watched Overpass and here is what I can tell objectively: - Cloud9 a lot better in terms of raw mechanics - Imperial won because they didn't give up while Cloud9 folded like a house of cards under pressure. Imperial are a weak team for major playoff level, bit they showed great spirit today while Cloud9 choked, and that's why they won. They don't have more talent than Cloud9

I'm not pissed, I just disagree. Btw, you're not from a 3rd world country, you wouldn't understand what it's like to always be left out of predictions and be treated as an underdog. Even when you know it shouldn't be like that. Besides, one thing is call Imperial underdog, other thing is pretend that he did just that. To call it not playoff material for me is a disrespect to a team that is performing and an excuse to a loss. Saying they only won because c9 choked is also a way to relativize the win, and that's also disrespect. So, he was not being nice either and that's pretty clear

Nah he’s being realistic. You know too that imperial isn’t a top 5 team skillwise. They might show otherwise soon, but as it stands they played as underdogs. It’s not about disrespect, but this is how it is. Congrats on the win though, i root for imperial so i was really sad they had to play cloud9(main support team).

I'm sorry for the Brazilian friends, they are very fanatical. I understand and agree with your point of view, after all it was easy to underestimate Imperial, although from the recent union of these players, they have a lot of experience in majors, most of them are two-time champions. The c9 was stronger, but I believe it is not so well received and I think that the victory of the first map had a psychological impact, favoring the imperial.

It was pointless to bet on C9 when they had 1.1 and Imperial had 4.1 or smth like that. Nobody with half of working brain would bet on C9 cuz its too risky. If You win, You win basicly nothing. So I went low on Imperial.

23 euro cuz I had 1923 balance. When I was younger I was betting high on teams who had 1.10 and once I lost 400 euro in skins, never make that mistake again and never will. It took me long time to rebuild my inventory at CSGOLounge after this mistake. Now I bet real money and only on majors (low on bo1's cuz its random) and tournaments like BLAST, same rules. Very low on bo1, mid/high on bo3's when I am sure about smth or low at oposite team when team that supposed to win is 1.10~ cuz even if I bet high and they win I get basicly nothing.

He WAS good (as I'm sure you're well aware), but not very many people expected him to revert back to his 2016-17 form, myself included. I'm happy that he has though! So yes, his ability to play this well at the top level (especially after being pretty mediocre for a few years before) is what I'd consider a revelation. If a different word is more appropriate in your eyes then that's fine too :)
