fnatic are WEM 2009 champions

December 19th, 2009 08:35
fnatic claimed victory at World Esports Masters, following a 2-0 win against Power Gaming in the Grand Final.

The battle for the World Esports Masters 2009 title was a showdown between Power Gaming and fnatic, where fnatic were to seek for revenge. Power Gaming had in the group stage defeated the Swedes and thereby claimed top spot in the group.

Starting T on de_inferno, fnatic picked up the pistol-round, which ignited a strong Swedes dominance. Power Gaming quickly came to realize that winning this match, would not be a walk in the park. The Swedes kept showing Power Gaming no mercy, leading to the Swedes securing 11-4 at half-time. Not much changed in second half, where fnatic once again won the pistol-round. Power Gaming went to pick a few rounds of comfort, before fnatic secured the five rounds needed to win 16-8.

On second map de_dust2, fnatic once again started T and once again picked up the pistol-round. Power Gaming had a hard time on the second map as well, which could be sense, standing just behind them. Several Power Gaming members just looked at each other and smiled or laughed when being ripped apart by fnatic. Once again fnatic secured a big lead before switching sides, this time with a 12-3 score line. Power Gaming could only hold fnatic down for a short matter of time, before the Swedes could raise their arms and claim victory at the score 16-10.

Good game. Well played by PG but @ dust2 a little bit panic with awp.

Brazil hugoooo 
well played?!??? seriously??? they were unrecognizable
2009-12-19 08:42
imo it was good match from PG. Fnatic was too much for them.
2009-12-19 09:16
Sorry, but in this final PG didn't play well until the end on d2. Was sad to see, looking at how great they played during the group stage & semi.
2009-12-19 08:45
u havent seen the same match as everyone else for sure
2009-12-19 09:06
imo TT half on d2 was played well. They just lost 2many round as a CT.
2009-12-19 09:15
it was indeed. but they didnt create panic lol. fnatic reached 15 rounds soon at ct so..
2009-12-19 09:28
they did

I really doubt that they'd play unserious in a final. Sure their playstyle might be a little bit more random and they're not playing as slow as swedes usually do but stating that a team wouldn't play seriously in a final where you can win 22,500 $ is simply stupid.

too bad :/ would've been nice to see someone else than fnatic win for a change. well what can you do. better luck next time.
2009-12-19 08:39
yeah true. Fnatic was better but being 2nd is still good and PG is still a great team.
2009-12-19 09:15
PG get me disappointed

Threat will most likely replace carn in 2010 and become their new IGL.
2009-12-19 08:48
Which will become their fall.
2009-12-21 22:28
gggg Fnatic
2009-12-19 08:45
fnatic played awesome ...
2009-12-19 08:48
so sad that PG lost this way :(
2009-12-19 08:48
"PG USED A STAND IN! THAT'S THE REASON!??!?!?!" time to start the excuses like swedish did at the first match
2009-12-19 08:49
:) but PG have played with this line up before actually.
2009-12-19 08:55
nice point -)
2009-12-19 08:56
Lol, that excuse I used by everyone. Again when they lost, Fnatic when they lost, and now PG. Get a fucking grip kids, they all played with standins so I'd say it was on equal terms.
2009-12-19 10:53
All of you do understand right that "lahnamarko" was making an ironic comment about the excuses some people made about fnatic losing in the group stages, not trying to explain the result of this match.
2009-12-19 13:24
yes yes Fnatic has showed once again that they are best in world
2009-12-19 08:58
lol @lahna marko lame excuse grow up Kid ..
2009-12-19 08:59
That was a joke... since everyone else is using the stand-in as an excuse for the loss.
2009-12-19 13:10
Lol you aint too bright are you :D
2009-12-19 15:59
congratulations fnatic! gj! Deserved to win, and today for me, delusion was the best player in both maps. PG was unrecognizable playing on de_inferno! just started playing on de_dust2, when turned to TR ...
2009-12-19 09:02
i dont agree. f0rest man of the match for sure imo.
2009-12-19 09:07
I agree f0rest is just unstoppable. carn has very good stuff as well.
2009-12-19 09:13
watch the hltv demo again and u will see that every player picked up some good frags. don't forget that most rounds GTR made that intro kills on both maps, carn aways keeping there backs and threat was a great stand-in. so gj everybody :D
2009-12-19 09:26
Fnatic are good playing in the year! GG FNATIC!
2009-12-19 09:11
even on dust2 how you gonna let them rush pistal round and own u as T.... no1 spotten mid.... who ever the strat caller is, is real bad. he didn't have his men prepared and they clearly are very inexperienced and they play in almost every tourny... very sad i rememered when finland crushed everyone in tfc. I swore they had the best gamers in the world. i guessed wrong. u can have all the talent in the world but when chit hits the fan u better have your head on straight.
2009-12-19 09:16

lol :D thats bad that there isnt any more rally dakar :D
2009-12-19 21:24
Finland is colder than Sweden, and the temperature wasn't what they spoke about, but the fact that they played so few matches a day.
2009-12-21 22:31
remeber in the area werent any good air conditons
2009-12-21 22:54
I know, but that wasn't what they spoke about, and you can't really say that "Oh you're Swedish, you're used to it" because Finland is colder than Sweden so they should be even more acclimatized. ;)
2009-12-21 23:07
no :(

BOOOORINNNGGGGGG everytime again or fnatic attend an event its fnatic or again who wins it. in this match experience was the key. i think that PG couldn't handle the pressure cause they are not too often in the grand final. till this point in the tournament they pretty much destroyed everything

big difference always between fnatic on group stage and finals.
2009-12-19 14:17
Starting T on de_inferno, fnatic picked up the pistol-round, which ignited a strong Swedes dominance. Should it not be "Swedish"?

IM BACK FOR ALL THOSE THAT MISSED ME! HLTV admins banned me from commenting for abuse but ill behave now! its good to see the polish noobs losing again, they get a lucky win at WCG then think there are world #1 hhahaha makes me laugh! Im so happy they lost to EG, oxmoze and then once AGAIN lose to fnatic but probably because they are so delusional and blind they still think there #1 and better then fnatic.
2009-12-19 21:48
I think you are going to be banned tomorrow.

2009-12-21 00:33
This tournament just shows how important the pistol rounds are.
