fnatic triumph at IEM5 GC Shanghai

August 1st, 2010 08:19

The favored Swedish side, fnatic, defeated TyLoo.raw in the Final of Intel Extreme Masters 5 Global Challenge Shanghai and secured a spot at the IEM5 World Championship in 2011.

First map that fnatic and TyLoo.raw clashed on was de_nuke, one on which the Chinese team impressively secured a place in the Final yesterday, defeating their comrades TyLoo 16-0. Therefore, it could have been expected that this will be a close affair, but fnatic quickly took matters into their own hands and won their CT side 11-4. In second half, the Swedes secured the pistol round, and it was only a matter of time before they would finish of the map. They did so rather quickly as the final score of the first map ended up being 16-7. The result could have been closer if there wasn't for Rasmus "Gux" Ståhl, who won three 1vs2 situations throughout the match bringing his team a few perhaps unexpected rounds.

Second map was de_train as fnatic started on the favored CT side. That proved to be a lot of trouble for TyLoo.raw as they found themselves down 13-2 at the half. Needing an almost perfect second half, the Chinese did manage to win the pistol round and start off quite good, taking an 8-0 lead. The European giants then regained control and finished off the match with the result 16-10 to win the first event in the 5th season of Intel Extreme Masters.

Broken tag

fnatic have therefore secured their second title after the recent lineup change, having won GameGune last week.

They received a cheque worth $14,000 for the success in Shanghai, as well as a spot in IEM5 World Championship in 2011, while TyLoo.raw got $7,000.

IEM5 Global Challenge Shanghai final standings:

1. Sweden fnatic - $14,000 + IEM5 World Championship spot
2. China TyLoo.raw - $7,000
3. Ukraine Na´Vi - $5,000
4. China TyLoo - $3,500
5-6. Korea WeMade FOX - $2,750
5-6. China wNv - $2,750
7-8. China 9ez - $2,500
7-8. China IM - $2,500

WOW

f0rest was the MVP, but that fnatic vs. Na`Vi may of been one of the best matches i've ever seen.. to bad Na`Vi lost on stupid errors by not letting markeloff awp but well deserved fnatic btw Savage is one hell of of a player..i would definitely put him as top10 individual players in the world, considering he's by far their best player and their in-game leader hope to see more of of Tyloo and Tyloo.raw at future international tournaments, if they get invited...which they should in my mind
2010-08-01 18:02
markeloff did awp :|

2010-08-01 15:58
Most Valuable Player not Most Winning Player. Is easier to frag as f0rest does if you have teammates like gtr gux or dsn and they're quite in shape. Savage instead was the only regular player in the Tyloo, while virgo was concentrated he had much more support but that was not enough since his performance wasn't uniform during all the matches. Maybe only winners deserves prizes. Who cares.

mm fnatic are too good again.. teams will just be competing for 2nd prize at events now.. 1st goes to fnatic
2010-08-01 08:36
i believe navi and mtw will be up there too..it isnt gona be as easy as 2009 thats for sure..
2010-08-01 09:31
too good to almost loose againt Na'Vi yeah. I always laugh at people like you saying stuff like "omg easy", "fnatic >>>>>>>", "lol no chance for the other team" while CS is based on randomness and luck in most of the situations. Winnig with overtime or 16-14 against another team is considered luckY and no I don't care about both fnatic and Na'Vi. I'm just writing my opinion here. :0
2010-08-01 10:54
navi won every knife round giving them a huge advantage in each map
2010-08-01 11:51
i guess fnatic should practice their knife rounds then :)
2010-08-01 12:25
Its not about luck its the mentally piece in this tight matches, who is the smartest and coldest in the decisive round

2010-08-01 08:41
yes;)
2010-08-01 08:44
You don't say that. its too eARLY
2010-08-01 08:44
If they where the better team they would have won. Today fnatic was the better team.
2010-08-01 08:45
apparently not. and now it's 5-2 in favor of fnatic in matches inbetween them so
2010-08-01 08:50
they are the greatest? :D
2010-08-01 09:14
omg stoopid fanboys.
2010-08-02 01:13

2010-08-02 12:36
and what do you believe now ? You can be better in English, you get more than other? fucking idiot.
2010-08-02 19:37
What? Couldn't understand your reply, sorry. Anyway, you're calling me a retard yet your English skills are crap. Read up on what 'retard' means before using it. fnatic > na'vi btw hahaaha
2010-08-03 03:57
btw u r looser , hahahaha
2010-08-03 13:30
haha thats why they lost to fnatic again :)
2010-08-01 10:25
Hahaha, too bad that fnatic have pwned Na'Vi in the last 2 events now :D:DDddd
2010-08-01 14:55
f0rest a few weeks practice with the awp = others several years, but then he is gifted with super quick reflex
2010-08-01 08:50
haha i wish i had his reflexes..btw f0rest has used the awp in the past too..on more than one occasion, we all know he has been good with it for years..he doesnt awp much because he is more effective as a rifle player, but on train awp's become really handy..

amazing team, gg fnatic
2010-08-01 10:39
gg for both teams really cool clash between Na'Vi and fnatic. Na'Vi very tired and can't show their best game and didn't do training for 1 month since ESWC and then tournament then again tournament, so they should training hard now and come to next tournament, fresh. What about fnatic, them need some time to make good teamplay with Gux, and they will play better i think. So, I think now noone team can't defeat Na'Vi and fnatic they are best now, but top1 will show WCG 2010!
2010-08-01 10:42
Except fnatic is not attending.
2010-08-01 12:03
LOL ESWC 2010 show who best in 2010 now and IEM this is navi!WCG next navi take this!

2010-08-01 13:09
Gux has really transformed fnatic into the fnatic@2009 team again. Adding Gux makes 3 world top aimers/madfraggers in the same team, allowing them to play a very aggressive and aim based game - which they couldn't with threat. I think replacing Threat with Gux made a huge difference. Not only is the total team strength higher but the motivation is also raised. Good luck at next tournamnet!
2010-08-01 12:19
GUX just came back and won both tournaments with fnatic. fOrest again first in the stats just like in all the latest tournaments fnatic played in..JustWOW~ Hope they will go to WCG.. they deserve to win it..

2010-08-01 15:56
Do not understand - Na'Vi hadn't even met with big Tyloo, yet the latter stay at second place while Na'Vi have third. It's ridiculous.

not just SK.. mouz, mtw, h2k, FX etc etc.. why u always have to talk about SK? if only Gux was a little bit of a man, SK would RAPE..
2010-08-02 00:10
I talk about SK because you are bashing fnatic for no reason.. and SK are no angels, they've treated their members bad before GUX so they had a bad history and you are only blaming GUX and fnatic because you are a blind fanboy..
