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.
fnatic hereby claimed the victory at the very last tournament of 2009, it being the first time the team wins a tournament in China. They will be going back home with a $22,500 prize cheque. Power Gaming can with second place bank $7,500 and note down an approved performance, as many before the tournament predicted them to crash in the group stage.
The final standings for World Esports Masters are as follows:
This ends the very last tournament of 2009 and once again seeing fnatic claim victory. The event have found its end, but we will be back with much more, including POV demos, statistics and photos from the closing ceremony.
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.
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.
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 ...
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
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.
it was different PG I saw today playing fnatic in the finals, it wasnt the guys who outaim their opponents and win important clutch rounds, it was more like a pcw mix playing there :D except the D2 terrorist side
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
no really its not...you people need to check your eyes cause it doesnt even look like him...and if you want to post pictures of half naked guys maybe you should start a site for people who enjoy it.For us heterosexuals CS fans on this site its not really so intresting.
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.
gratz for team fnatic and i express my sadness that Again isn't at least on second place... all blame i place on fnatic for lost match with pg in group stage:p but probably for guys from team again there is no difference becauce their place would still not be a first place... gg anyway
