k1ck win IEM5 qualifier

k1ck eSports Club came from behind to beat Paranoids 2-1 and earn a place in the IEM European Championship Qualifying Round 1.

k1ck had dropped into the Lower Bracket after a 16-3 defeat to Paranoids earlier in the tournament, but a strange tournament setup saw the final being played in a best-of-three format, with no advantage given to the Upper Bracket finalist.

After a slow start to the match, losing de_nuke 16-13, k1ck controlled the tempo on de_train and de_inferno to win both maps 16-12 and 16-9, respectively.

Broken tag

k1ck have now qualified for the IEM European Championship Qualifying Round 1, which starts next week and will feature a total of 24 teams.

The Portuguese team have:

Brazil Helder "coachi" Sancho
Portugal Ricardo "fox" Pacheco
Portugal Joaquim "axoN" Pinto
Portugal Rui "SHOUW" Reis
Portugal João "
ehz" Monteiro

foxj owning newbies again = high rank on hltv stats.
2010-09-13 03:05
newbies? they managed to beat them on nuke, beside mtw and poonhandles, no team from denmark would be able to it dont u think so? btw, he showed at gamegune he's one of the best awpers in the world, so i dont really know, why u guys always have to say those NON-SENSES about portugal or anyone related, its fuckin absurd..
2010-09-13 03:13
so mtw and p00n would not be able to beat k1ck on nuke, are u kiddin?
2010-09-13 03:23

2010-09-13 03:29
Its 3 o'clock at night here im sleepy sorry. And i think that teamteam, cheaptimes and np would have a chance, k1ck is a semi team just like them.
2010-09-13 03:32
I dont think they are a semi-team....
2010-09-13 03:36

2010-09-13 05:51
two stand in.. one of them was playing better then almost every1 in that team.. and we beat them on train which a very hard map when they had cyx.. the whole match more about fox vs cyx then k1ck vs mouz
2010-09-13 09:38

2010-09-13 22:11

2010-09-13 21:53
U guys have taken fanboyism to a new level.
2010-09-13 22:12
U guy take "stupid" expression to another level. Keep growing up!
2010-09-13 22:42
thats the only shit that you know to say ? get new internet vocabulary please
2010-09-13 23:12
ahahah miraa, "kick controlled the TEMPO" :)))
2010-09-13 03:10
what's so funny about that?
2010-09-13 04:12
its portuguese no? he writes the news in english?
2010-09-13 04:50
"Tempo" is also a english word...
2010-09-13 11:05
2010-09-13 13:32
tempo is used in english, but it has a totally different meaning. tempo as in rythm or pace, not time.
2010-09-13 14:06
en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Tempo Not just a Portuguese/Spanish word :). It does have a different meaning in English though... Well... not exactly different as much as restricted, we do use it in that sense as well, but it has much more other meanings in our language than it does in English.
2010-09-13 04:24
i dont think thats what miraa meant.. he misspeled for sure.. :)
2010-09-13 04:49
No, he didn't. It's a perfectly common expression, specially in sports, to say someone is "controlling the tempo", meaning they were in control of the pace or the rhythm of something (in the case of sports, the pace of the match). And even if it wasn't, if you think about it the sentence wouldn't even make sense in Portuguese... how is saying someone controlled time a legitimate way to demonstrate their performance in a match? Just google "controlling the tempo of the match" (with quotation marks) and you'll see how common it is :).
2010-09-13 05:52
2010-09-13 15:47
kinda fail :D

Die fucking retard.
2010-09-13 12:39
dont mess with portuguese people u r suffering the consequences now :x
2010-09-13 14:59
unfortunately portugal only had a wcg guitar hero qualifer. Bad times for portuguese economy has efect on the lack of financial support to pay for a trip plus accomodation in LA.
2010-09-13 03:53
If that's what had happened
2010-09-13 15:27
why bo3, when have winners and losers before?
2010-09-13 04:49
#ESL.PT sad but true
2010-09-13 15:49
cuz they're K1CK ...
2010-09-13 18:40
2010-09-13 05:26
true, i didn't understant, k1ck came from loosers, and in the final it was BO3? paranoids only needed 1 map to win if they came from winners, but ... thats esl rules :D:D:D:
2010-09-13 05:43
yes. kick needed 2 maps to win and paranoids just one bur k1ck won 2 in a row.The "1" map from paranoids was from the brackets when they defeated k1ck.
2010-09-13 10:03
wrong "After a slow start to the match, losing de_nuke 16-13" no, paranoid didn't have +1map from the upper braket...
2010-09-13 11:48
yeah, that's ESL rules..
2010-09-13 10:11
Congratulations :)
2010-09-13 06:16
2010-09-13 09:36
expected (: but bad net qualifiers.. @ LAN this would be easier for K1CK
2010-09-13 10:17
wtf, upper braket don't have to win only 1 map? ffs portugal...
2010-09-13 11:45
Nor Portugal's fault, it's ESL that makes the rules
2010-09-13 11:54
ESL Portugal i think.. didnt see any bullshit of this type in other countries esl.
2010-09-13 15:28
cant understand either.. ESL.PT is ESL, the rules should be the same..
2010-09-13 16:13
go porto!!
2010-09-13 12:12
k1ck is like wizards
2010-09-13 12:23
but much stronger rolf . k1ck > B4G
2010-09-13 12:48
Go die fanboy B4G >>>>>>>> k1ck
2010-09-13 12:59
I wouldn't say that B4G are so much better then k1ck, in a lan tournament, a match between them could go either way, but still B4G are at the same level that k1ck, maybe a bit better, so lets not exaggerate.
2010-09-13 13:50
not fanboysm just check recent atchivments
2010-09-14 23:12
k1ck shouldnt even have advance, they won the first map in the grand final coming from the losers bracket
2010-09-13 12:40
dude, internet owns in our country
2010-09-13 14:26
lineup from paranoids?
2010-09-13 13:42

2010-09-13 14:33

2010-09-13 14:45
you cant all like k1ck or Portugal, but why do you all have to hate them? LOL and we are talking about PORTUGUES NATIONAL CS, why are there many haters here.. no one is saying k1ck > fnatic or whatever lol
2010-09-13 16:12
2010-09-13 16:24
People like you contribute to the fanboys dont disapeared, and you still manage to get the problem since nobody is with stupid comments ...
2010-09-13 22:59
true true Kakakakakaka
2010-09-13 18:09
k1ck fail in IEM5 finals, will lose easy for teams tops. very easy. team bad.
2010-09-13 19:01
maybe maybe not.. now they have time to prepare the strats with ehz and improve some other.. only now thew will get ehz in better shape cuz he will only adapt to his new team now that he has time. personally I think they will do better then they did with mutt.. so lets just see what happens..
2010-09-13 19:24
k1ck lost the 1st game agaisnt paranoids to play more games like this win proves
2010-09-13 22:26
