fnatic over mTw to win IEM5 Europe

MIRAA
January 23rd, 2011 21:49

fnatic came from behind to beat mTw 2-1 and win the IEM5 European Championship Finals.

fnatic, who started off as CT, were the first team to win a round, when they stopped mTw's patient strategy of holding middle. In the first gun round, though, some accurate wallbanging by mTw caused serious damages to fnatic and allowed them to score for the first time. The Danish team then got control of the money system as every gun round lost by fnatic resulted in a full eco for them, a story which was repeated for five rounds, until the Swedes finally managed to get back into the game. Fnatic then saw the next five rounds go their way to set the score at 8-5, but mTw did not lower their heads and won what there was left, to be down by the smallest of margins at the break.

The second half began with a quick rush by fnatic from the ramps into the tower room, which was quickly stopped by mTw. After losing the second round, the Swedes decided to buy, but the move did not pay off as they were unable to break through the Danish defence and had to go on eco again. However, the Swedes won the next two rounds, the second of which thanks to an amazing individual action by Richard "Xizt" Landström. That was not enough to break mTw’s hearts, though, with the Danish side coming right back into the game and going all the way to win the first map 16-11.


mTw in the lead

de_train started with fnatic getting the knife round, which allowed them to pick the defensive side. It was not strange then that they won the first three rounds with ease. The fourth round looked like would go to Denmark, but Marcus "Delpan" Larsson sensationally won a 1-on-2 situation with just 2 hp and an AWP. mTw finally managed to score in the fifth round, but that was a rare sight in the first half, as fnatic shut down their bombsites really well, except in the last two rounds, which went to mTw as the scoreboard showed 11-4 for the Swedes.

Fnatic won the pistol round in the second half in incredible fashion, as Richard "Xizt" Landström won it with just 1 hp against an opponent who had full health. mTw reacted in the third round and gained control of the match but in the end of the 30 rounds neither side could prove their point as the game ended 15-15. In overtime, after the teams had won five rounds each in the first set, fnatic distanced themselves from mTw in the second OT set, winning the map 26-23.

On de_inferno, fnatic got the all-important pistol round on the offensive side with a middle push into bombsite A, which mTw could not deflect. The Danish side only got the chance to respond in the fourth round and they went on to level the game on three rounds. The rest of the first half was a close affair, as the rounds were distributed almost equally among the teams.


fnatic win it

Now on the defensive side, fnatic, who were down by 8-7, won once again the pistol round, this time with a very aggressive strategy which left mTw with very little room to operate. The Danes pulled one back in the fourth round, but that is as far as they went, as fnatic's defensive setup was too tight for mTw, which gave the Swedish team a comfortable 16-9 victory on the last map.

Delpan, Impossible shots @ train, even the esl commentators couldn't believe am, (JoeM, THREAT). Delpan,Xizt,dsn stars of the match. Great play by fnatic. and i won my bet hehe :=P
2011-01-23 21:58
First of all, this event could go random cause all teams have new rosters.Because of this fact,we will see at IEM5 World Championship who will be the best team of 2011. Until then, they have lot time to prepare and be constant. Secondly, I think, in these moments, f0rest and GeT_RighT die. Anyway I wanna say gratz to fnatic,that was the biggest surprise at this event. You all thought that this will go to SK. This reverse was beautiful for my point of view. Other surprise was FX, cause lately they haven`t played anything and they reached top 3. Furthermore, congratulations mTw for 2nd place. Finally,I`m disappointed by Alternate, I thought with that lineup they will be manage some damage. That`s all and "break a leg" for all teams which participate at World Championship. hate stream.love hltv

Sweden hWo 
If fnatic would face fx, they would loose.
2011-01-24 12:10
no cause fx suck at bo3 soo they allways do great in group stages but play off they are bad.. and mtw is a team there really step up in play off. so fnatic won because of xizt and delpan and not because it was mtw(zonic and trace was bad on inferno) and not fx.
2011-01-24 12:33

Sweden hWo 
That's not true. Fx dont suck at bo3 and they don't always do well in groups.

2011-01-23 21:53
cArn, what can I say about him? He is a FUCKING LEGEND Built the 2006 fnatic from 3 young players f0rest Archi Tentpole, then did it again in 2009 with GTR n Gux. Now he has done it again, this guy is capable of anything omg
2011-01-23 21:53
true he is Jose Mourinho =)
2011-01-23 21:56
actually dsn built fnatic :)
2011-01-23 22:20
yeah kudos to him to, but it was cArn more than dsn who leads fnatic to success after success
2011-01-23 22:25
+1 it's acctually the combo of cArn and dsn that is the key for fnatic's success. love em both. so great guys. so humble and nice to people. but i must admit cArn is something special. very intelligent and superduper strategy wizzard :P

This tournament helped xizt to get on another lvl;) great to see that carn and dsn has given him the chance to play with them, but hey don't forget about pita and delpan, delpan with such an amazing performance at train, and pita with his stable performance. GJ fnatic!
2011-01-23 21:54
"mTw won the IEM5 European Championship Finals with 2-0 victory over fnatic" WHAT?
2011-01-23 21:54

2011-01-23 22:02

2011-01-23 22:37
Well, it's pretty possible, isn't it? :D I don't think he started writing this right after the match, he did it during it :)
2011-01-23 23:02
ye i agree with you. but it's funny :)
2011-01-24 14:45
Yeah, that's for sure :)
2011-01-24 15:13
Awesome! But people do forget about dsn cArn, delpan and pita, they did a really good job too! Fnatic just played so good as a TEAM and not only just one person.
2011-01-23 21:54

2011-01-23 22:03
nop, he said that he don't think they can make it to top3
2011-01-23 22:08
no, he said that we wouldnt be surprised to see then in top3! but he also said that they wont be top3 in their group
2011-01-23 22:47
No, he said he wouldn't be surprised to see them top 3, but wasn't expecting it. Which is what a lot of people were thinking, not just him.

Deserved. Forest and GTR must be crying depressed at Sweden! ahah :)
2011-01-23 21:54
why would they be crying? just because they lost? or is that they left the team? if there weren't any changes,imo, na'vi would still win most of the tournaments. So they have nothing to cry for.
2011-01-23 22:09
Because they made the wrong decision. Betrayed their friends in order to join one team with less potencial.
2011-01-23 22:17
they had to change the team, betraying or not, if fnatic continued with the same line-up they wouldn't had won this tournament. :D:D:D:D:D

Touching... What a fairy tale ending. They looked nervous during the first map but after they won that overtime on train, they looked so pumped up. Well done fnatic. cArn and dsn are legends. Xizt is on the road to be the best player this year.
2011-01-23 21:55
well described. truly a fairy tale ending. i had given up hope when it reached 15-15 at de_train. i went away and prepared my mind for what i would see when i got back to the screen just so i wouldn't be so dissapointed IF mTw had won. man was i glad when i came back and saw that fnatic had won de_train :) seems like everytime i think that the worst will happen the opposite happens. it's a tactic of mine. to expect the worst and be humble. Obviously it pays off :P
2011-01-23 22:41
yeah true and i screamd when i saw 1vs1 xizt 1hp againts archer or something :D
2011-01-23 23:50
:P Xizt was just insane. and the way he ended the game... holy shit.

fnatice dont DESERVE IT its total bullshit: first map: mtw win second map fnatic just lucky
2011-01-23 21:55
of course theres no comment on the third map because you ca't say they didn't earn it without looking like more of an idiot breh
2011-01-23 22:05
One map can be a fluke at times, but any team that wins a bo3 deserves it. Please STFU and kill yourself.
2011-01-23 22:07
You created an account just to comment? That's depressing. Luck protect the ones who deserve it :). Fnatic was the best team at this tournament.

2011-01-23 23:52
sure, they are "lucky" to win a title that Navi,SK and other clans who were trying to win.ROFL,cry baby stop crying.Fnatic well deserve.You should find and corner and cry as much as you want,not in HLTV side.

2011-01-23 21:57
who is forest btw,rofl.I think i already forget who.Xizt was most underrated players last year,I think he already passed forest skill,he didnt have a good lineup last year to prove,so did Delpan,I think he is the most talent awper in CS right now. SK,they dont have a good called and they dont have an awper either,I dont think 5 great aimers can win vs best teamwork clans.CS teamwork means everything.
2011-01-24 02:34

2011-01-23 21:57
very well played, I think not even carn and co. expected to win the event with such a style. Hope xizt will be so amazing during the rest of the year. CG
2011-01-23 21:57

2011-01-23 21:57
no he wasn't that good throughout the tournament...
2011-01-23 22:14
was hoping better from pita. but they did great, with the words of GeT_RiGhT to fnatic: Dont Stop Believing (: GO for best team 2011! (: Great job ;)
2011-01-23 21:57
Xizt, new forest in fnatic.
2011-01-23 21:57

2011-01-23 22:38
all the ones who now say: Xizt > f0rest, gtr or Fnatic <3, you reaaally cried when sk went home..
2011-01-23 21:57
No. I hate goddamn SK gaming from the bottom of my heart and i LOLed when they crashed out to MYM 16-3 xD
2011-01-23 22:10
rolf, they are home now i believe. wait and see if SK can win VS top clans.Im not saying they are bad,but they dont seem to be a champin type of clan with this lineup.
2011-01-24 02:38
One of the greatest finals I have ever seen ;)
2011-01-23 21:58
They only win by luck... -.-
2011-01-23 21:58
agree: first map win by mtw second map just fnatic lucky
2011-01-23 21:59
Yeah like mTw had a much more difficult road to get to the finals. You can win one map with luck, not a whole tournament.
2011-01-23 22:00
are you that frustrated? :o
2011-01-23 22:11
Just face it, fnatic "owned" mTw, this wasn't just 1 map, it was best out of 3.
2011-01-23 22:24
not disagreeing it wasn't luck, but it could've gone either way, no way in hell did they own mTw...
2011-01-24 00:03
"owned"
2011-01-24 13:26
well owned is the wrong word to use, beat yes, never ever did they own mTw
2011-01-24 19:48
they deserve it sooo much ..with a whole new lineup... they won cArn, dsn, Delpan, Xizt, pita.. great lineup great teamplay ! CONGRATULATIONS! and as i predicted one of the best finals ! fnatic <3333333333333
2011-01-23 21:59
Well played to fnatic, Xizt mvp of the final for sure.
2011-01-23 21:58

2011-01-23 22:00
Xizt was amazing! :D But Neo or Trace i think will be MVP :)
2011-01-23 22:00
neo could be, but it has to be somebody from the winning team, so it will be xizt. Trace played rly bad inferno, it could ruin his stats
2011-01-23 22:11
mvp doesnt have to be from winning team, its about player not team
2011-01-23 22:21
yeah my bad, so it will be neo or xizt imo.
2011-01-23 22:29
Gratz. Some one shold make frag movie from the grand final alone.
2011-01-23 22:00
no words for xizt performance over tournament, he was fantastic, if he keeps playin like this fnatic will be unstoppable
2011-01-23 22:01
Xizt made it for em! i cant believe what he did everything he did was great!

2011-01-23 22:04
Pita low for fnatic
2011-01-23 22:04
no, he isn't. your logic is like saying ceh9 is low for Na`Vi ;)
2011-01-23 22:05
modii feats fnatic more that pita,he's better,much much better
2011-01-23 22:09
pita is good
2011-01-23 22:24
he did almost nothing compairing to Xizt,Delpan,dsn and carn this tournament,face it up
2011-01-23 22:27
moddii isn't a teamplayer, he can't play with his teammates due to his character. think why moddii was kicked from MYM, why moddii didn't play with SK? and cArn already said in an interview why moddii wasn't invited to play in fnatic.
2011-01-23 22:30
moddii is team player LOL He was kicked out of MYM only because of differences with captain MYM (can not remember his name) but its strategies have been VERY stupid he did not agree with him.He was kicked out of SK ONLY becouse of forest+GTR.And stupid Carn he cant get it lol. Moddii= 2pita
2011-01-23 23:04
huh, ok. and way allen stayed in SK? FRIENDS? lol. read cArn's interview @ fnatic.com
2011-01-24 06:23
I read it a long time
2011-01-24 11:06
ceh9 is low for NaVi
2011-01-23 22:29
FO !
2011-01-23 22:05
totally agree with u,he's on another lower lvl
2011-01-23 22:08
pita > ceh9
2011-01-23 22:14
u cannot compare this one,but I have to say that they're both worst players in their teams tbh
2011-01-23 22:16
yes i can compare them ... neither one of them is igl or awp ... they have fragging role! yet navi was amazing in '10 i think same thing's gonna be in '11 with fnatic
2011-01-23 22:18
u're compairing them only by their role in whole team?they're still the weakest aimers in their teams,i'm not saying that they're not making important frags or doing their roles badly,but we can compare their statistics ok,navi was the best in 2010 but... lets take a look,mTw and FX impressed me a lot this tournament,also MYM did this,I'm sure that SK will do a lot of damage later,so do fnatic,and probably NaVi,and now ofc we cannot say who can dominate through the year,3 biggest tournaments to go and it was first big lan tourney this year,everything can happen
2011-01-23 22:22
ofcourse , as i wrote "i think" ... i didn't wrote "im 100%sure" i just have feeling cheers
2011-01-23 22:24

This is the way that tourney's are maked ;) always has to be a 1...2...3... place's , but i don't know why you people talks & write like 2'nd place is a looser place ?!? .... Hey ... that means only one team is beter than you ... isn't that enought to be happy ?
2011-01-23 22:14
wouldn't even say that in this tournament 1 team was better than another seemed like mTw=Fnatic and as mTw also =FX that must meen FX=Fnatic=mTw

. fnatic - $20,000 without World Finals Slot ? :)
2011-01-23 22:09
They already qualified by winning last year, so they didn't need the world finals slot in the first place (even if they crashed out in group stage they would've gotten in there).
2011-01-23 22:10
Wrong. Natus Vincere qualified by winning last year :)
2011-01-23 22:18
There was an article on this a few days ago. Na' Vi won last year at Intel Extreme Masters IV, but fnatic won at the IEM V Global Challenge. We're talking about IEM V, not IV. hltv.org/news/6051-sk-tcm-to-play-iem5-w..
2011-01-24 12:46
Are you stupid? I said that Natus Vincere were qualified to World Championship by winning last year. Didn't even talk about fnatic, but you're the one that failed. . fnatic - $20,000 without World Finals Slot ? :) They already qualified by winning last year WRONG! Natus Vincere were the one that won the World Championship and got automatically qualified.
2011-01-25 23:33
Yes, you were talking about Na'Vi, but I was replying to the original post asking about fnatic. You come in, going "Wrong" while explaining that Na'Vi qualified by winning last year. Yeah, they won IEM IV, notice I said that Na'Vi won IEM IV. Also, Na'Vi was not the winner of IEM V Global Challenge in Shanghai. I've already provided the post related to this topic: do some research before you call someone retarded. And if you really can't hold back on calling someone stupid just because they're wrong instead of replying like a civilized person would, you need to learn to be more mature and respond in a more civilized way. And if you think I called you dumb first, I never stated that once in my original reply to you; I just stated the facts, and you got emotional over it.

They are only going to get better from now on. I feel happy for Delpan now that he has found a real team for himself. He had waited for this moment for a long time and he almost quit CS at one point. I guess that long wait finally paid off.

2011-01-23 22:15
fnatic with a victory
2011-01-23 22:16
we have to thank f0rest/GTR for leaving fnatic so we could see Xizt the new talent shines like this... he's so insane !
2011-01-23 22:16
awesome won with the new lineup,big GG for fnatic they give everything from him for this epic battle,gj again and will see ya in the IEM World championship.Peace!
2011-01-23 22:16
Xizt+pita > mTw
2011-01-23 22:16
Carn and Dsn not good enough for Forest, GeT_RiGhT and Gux. And where are they now? At home. And fnatic are winners!!!
2011-01-23 22:17
Well, i didn't know that. Thanks for telling me!
2011-01-24 00:16
Good Game and God Job FNATIC. mpv for Xizt. Good Luck in the future!

anyone got the link to the stream ?
2011-01-23 22:17
cArn - took them through the group stages. dsn - Has always been a great player,not just an awper,people start noticing beacuse theres no omfg forest to do.Crucial role against Na'Vi in semis destroying everything. pita - Great support play with hell lot of imp frags throughout the maps which were really crucial. Delpan - Nuke was bad but he won train and good consistency in inferno. Xizt - The next big thing in CS 1.6,no doubt MVP,is in a league of his own. thanx gtr and forp for leaving fnatic,guess you were dragging them(carn,dsn) down eh ?? ,,|, am so happy now ;D
2011-01-23 22:17
totally agree
2011-01-23 22:19

2011-01-23 22:19
Delpan was not in his best shape at that tournament but was still huge with some amazing AWP shots & amazing clutches with 1hp :) next tournament will be the best for Delpan because it's been long time he didn't play in such high level with a real team. WAIT IEM WORLD!
2011-01-23 22:19
AMAZING !
2011-01-23 22:19
The man of the tournament should be carn for setting up such a great, balanced squad and command them for the victory. I think he had the hardest task before and at the UA's LAN:)
2011-01-23 22:21
Wohoooo! Xizt did amazing
2011-01-23 22:19
Superb games :D highly entertaining tournament
2011-01-23 22:19

Congratulation fnatic!! They have won becouse of winning all pistols rounds. It was very very important.
2011-01-23 22:23
i think xizt mvp of the final, but definately dsn was mvp of the tournament. every game he was one of the top players, and contributed so much. totally on top of his game anyways team effort, gg and thanks for the great games
2011-01-23 22:21
I'm so happy for Delpan, such an amazing player now he's finally won a tournament for himself
2011-01-23 22:22
Good job, Fnatic :]
2011-01-23 22:22

Xizt is motherfartinG CRAZY
2011-01-23 22:27
cArn, you are the man! How the fuck you get 3 new players in a line-up and beat two times the overpowered Na`Vi team and win the first big tournament they atend? Just amazing! dsn is the fucking consisten man, he barely shows bad performances! Pita did a great job, but imo he was the least crucial for fnatic this time, but he will show better things in the future for sure! Delpan didn't start the tournament that well but he recovered his best form for the final games. That 1vs2 with 2hp is impressive! And no words to describe Xizt seriously... frags, frags and more frags! Good game mTw, always in the big finals, between the best teams! Trace is getting better and better, totally sick. And minet looks like he improved a lot! Go go go CS!
2011-01-23 22:28
Hey Nixon we need Xzit's pov from this final!! tx :D

2011-01-23 22:34
amazing...cArn played really good this tournament and DSN really showed exactly how good of a riffle player he is..really underrated player i mean he is always good, he takes entry frags he can be the madfrager very good 1vsX ,very good awp etcetc. delpan could have played better...even if he played good in the final but he have more to give...and xizt aim is so crazy...nice to see that he can play so good in the final also. Pita could play better but he did his job. gratz fnatic :).
2011-01-23 22:44
agree 100%
2011-01-23 23:03
good job fnatic :D
2011-01-23 22:38
well played, congratulations fnatic.
2011-01-23 22:39
well played by mTw aswell. gg. both teams gave us some real entertainment.
2011-01-23 22:43
For sure, although i secretly wanted fnatic to win, just to give it to GTR and co. :)
2011-01-23 22:44
lol :P good one.
2011-01-23 22:46
what up now forest and getright? wankers
2011-01-23 22:39
O hey look! Fnatic is still winning events. Just like the old days. To bad these "old guys" were not worth the time of the old "real talent" ehhhh
2011-01-23 22:42
MVP for me is Delpan he play realy great all matchs in my opnion, and xitz is behind him
2011-01-23 22:42
Xizt mvp for this final. cArn was mvp (for fnatic) in this tournament imo. but the whole team should be mvp tho :P
2011-01-23 22:46
dsn mvp for the tournament imo... he fragged so hard
2011-01-23 23:04

Poland Pab 
actually neo is Top #1 this tournament just look at his stats :) they lost 2 maps in whole tournament and neo was always topfragger + he won xx clutches 1v1/1v2/1v3 and well he got best k/d ratio
2011-01-23 23:16
it's true, but the MVP player award as usual must go to one from the team who won the competiotion.. so i guess DSN or XIZT
2011-01-23 23:25
TBH delpan can play alot better then this...wasnt one of his best tournaments. DSN was good in every match as usuall and i think he has alot more to do with fnatic success over the years than people think...but he isnt the type that gets MVP awards...but in my book he is one of the best players ever.
2011-01-23 22:48
feeling sad for mtw though , they reach the finals so often but loose almost all of them (except dh).
2011-01-23 22:44
yap,butt they still got the cash for 2nd place ;) beers for everyone!
2011-01-23 22:55
Delpan nono, Xizt and dsn, both played better than Delpan
2011-01-23 22:46
I REALLY LOVE THIS NEW ROSTER OF FNATIC. Nice final round of xizt =D <3

Very very nice win by fnatic. Can't wait to see more. Hopefully it will be the start of more great things and Xizt, pita and Delpan will be the catalyst to help fnatic get above NaVi consistently. As for SK, their failure to get out of groups was, as to anyone a massive surprise. But I don't think people should rule them out. They didn't play fnatic. Something tells me SK will be back up there very soon. I think fnatic for this tournament, just had a massive drive to do well with masses of motivation and hit NaVi with everything they had. And NaVi weren't playing as strongly as they have before either, but they'll be back I think. Gratz to fnatic, hoping for a massively successful year to them. Can't wait for more matches to see them in action. :)
2011-01-23 22:47
Im sure SK and Navi can play alot better so it will be very intresting to follow the CS scene this year.
2011-01-23 22:50
Amazing job by cArn and dSn! Great coach and captain :) Xizt, Delpan and pita are really amazing this tournament! Congratz guys

Xizt gonna be better then f0rest :) 19 years :O
2011-01-23 23:22
xizt was really good, but this whole tournament was awesome from the 2 oldschoolers of fnatic. they showed that they are still really beasts. they were so much underrated while playing besides f0rest, gtr and gux. f0rest is an idiot leaving his mates after so long time. hopefully sk will break, shit on f0rest :/
2011-01-23 23:23
do you guys know if I can get the stream downloaded? I mean like if they will upload all the Joe's commentary and map overlooks on youtube or something. MUST SEE carn dancing after winning again"

i always thought they would do some damage.. delpan is my fav. and with him a team normally does not lose... although in the finals he was bad the first map but still they pulled of the victory... on train some of his shots were legendary... delpan> all with the big green(nuke excluded)
2011-01-24 08:52
Great match, I'm really happy for carn and dsn Grats guys. Mvp Xizt no doubt but, was it not for delpan on train, mTw would have won 2-0

hmm dsn im pretty sure was far more consistent then xizt who just played good in the final map of the finals.. he cant deserve MVP.. delpan was getting more crucial rounds through out the semi's and stuff..and carn is the one that made this believable with his amazing group stawge play...MVP carn / dsn ...
2011-01-24 12:54
i wont lie if DSN is not MVP.. this game is filled with bandwagoners.

Good that fnatic won. MTW doesnt deserve it. They will deserve it when they would learn what fair play means. They still doing maths well...
2011-01-24 13:15
lol @ ppl who say that it was a first tournament for SK etc, excuses after an excuse. It was also the first tournament for fnatic, they both had a same amount of time to practise. Face it, SK sucks and fnatic owns. Trust me, SK won't achieve anything remarkable, there will always be a team who wins tournament in front of SK- fnatic, mtw, fx, navi , no chance for SK
2011-01-24 14:07
i hope delpan leaves awping in nuke... other than that he is just too amazing... the best awper for sure... his rifles are amazing so he should rifle in nuke rather than miss shots all the time...
2011-01-24 14:17
True, his rifle skills are amazing (as highlight shows vs Lions)
2011-01-24 16:17
