Frag eXecutors win e-Stars Seoul

August 21st, 2011 11:44

Frag eXecutors has defeated SK Gaming and won the 2011 edition of e-Stars Seoul. This is the second year in a row the Poles has won the prestigious South Korean event.

The final started off on de_tuscan with Fx starting out as terrorists. Fx mounted some good early pressure but seemed to run out of steam allowing SK to pick up some critical rounds towards the end of the half to take slender 8-7 lead to SK. SK continued their momentum and took rounds with ease in the second half and closed out the match quickly 16-9.

With SK winning de_tuscan, and the teams on even level now the Grand-final would be decided on de_inferno. Fx started out as counter-terrorists and both teams were neck and neck. A mix up in strategy from SK allowed Fx to win a round they really should not have won. This round would prove costly later on. At the halfway stage SK once again took a narrow 8-7 lead.

The second half commenced and Fx jumped out to an early lead, at one point it was 14-9 in favour of Fx. SK rallied back and managed to bring it all the way back to 14-14 with only the two rounds remaining. Fx won the 29th round and it looked like they had it in the bag, however SK managed to pick up the final round to send it into overtime.

The small overtime break really seemed to help Fx more, as they started to play a really aggressive counter-terrorist half in the overtime. Fx picked up all three rounds with the change of sides. In the second overtime, Fx looked close to closing it out on the tow rounds, but it was not to be. Eventually their joy came as picked up the crucial round at the last possible opportunity.

21st August 2011

Frag eXecutors were victorious and take home the first place cheque for 15,000,000 WON which is roughly $13,800 and the title of e-Stars Seoul 2011 champions for the second year in a row.

either way it could have gone both ways..19-17 is a score that indicates same level of skill :)
2011-08-21 14:24
And DoTA 2 is giving 1,000,000 $ to the winners! [and yes I've checked the number of zeros] Even the 8th place gets 25,000 $ which is greater that the sum of the 1st two here... It is very sad indeed. Instead of fighting on which team is better and arguing over it, we should support the game and develop a great community! For CS forever!
2011-08-21 12:05
OMG! 1,000,000 for the 1st place? or its all prize money?
2011-08-21 12:11
1 million for 1st, all prize money is 1,6 million
2011-08-21 12:14 and na'vi is in championship finals :D
2011-08-21 12:15

2011-08-21 15:24
Greece her-1g 
he is like one retarded person 2 days ago who said that FX has won more titles throughout their carreer than SK..So FX > SK...i switched off my laptop because i couldnt believe what i was reading haha
2011-08-22 16:04
Why did anyone even compare those teams, SK has had +50 players, FX has had 6 :D?
2011-08-22 16:18
Greece her-1g 
exactly SK is around since the very beggining while FX became huge from 2006 and onwards..SK won almost everything at 2002-2003-2005-2011 and lots of other tournaments while FX perfomed great at 2007 and after that they win an event and at the other they place top16. They compared them because FX won SK at estars

A travel to Korea is really expensive, thats why
2011-08-21 12:42
Look at Dota 2 Gamescom prizemoney... 1st place takes 1M $
2011-08-21 13:50
valve will also pump some big cash at cs:go for sure
2011-08-21 15:42
Hopefully they do! But before that they should try to make it better by incorporating changes demanded by CS 1.6 players or it will be a fail just like Source! Lets pray for a better future! ;)

2011-08-21 11:46
2011-08-21 11:55
2011-08-21 11:47
his opinion?
2011-08-21 11:48
no, another polish troll atempt. but no offense ofcourse
2011-08-21 11:53
so, a polish guy cant say fx is the best team?
2011-08-21 12:36
oh they can, obviously they can, but no1 will take him very seriously anyway
2011-08-21 12:47
people around me ,i mean csers, have faith in FX all the time, FX as a team is the best.and NEO is the soul of FX. SK has more fans here, that's cuz SK has more star player. BOTH TEAMS had done very well today. TAZ and Pasha had played well on dust2 and tuscan. BUT NEO is the man of the hour at THE GRAND FINAL on inferno.
2011-08-21 13:42
he can say that they are the best team in his opinion. he's trying to state facts
2011-08-22 16:16
of course but I have my opinion and that is wrong, played 11 games with 0 Fx and 9 sk victories and the last of Fx only for 2 rounds with a possible second overtime ¿then?
2011-08-21 11:56
dude they got 19 round sk got 17 so? what do you talking about?
2011-08-21 20:35
That's true fail. They won with the best teams in whole tournament(including 'unbeatable' SK) and they get 1st place.
2011-08-21 11:56
sk as accurate and defeating fnatic, mtw and navi just as fx iso, with the only difference that came with a map fx of benefit to the end, then you really think that 2 rounds you can tell a team "the best in the world" Please do not be silly friend
2011-08-21 12:00
Someone's must be the best. How do you want to choose, if not looking at last results and tournament? FX defeated SK twice, and they also defeated Na'Vi. Now, you can look who took second, and third place.
2011-08-21 12:07
if we begin to see the amount of losses then the loser is you, yes and fx have met 11 times lately and fx has won only two and one who almost lost an overtime So this makes it the world's best team?
2011-08-21 12:11
Ou, man. Na'Vi won the most tournaments in 2010, they defeated FX, SK, mTw or fnatic several times. Does it mean they are the best? "Someone's must be the best. How do you want to choose, if not looking at LAST results and tournament?" AT THE MOMENT FX is the best team.
2011-08-21 12:15
Rofl..!! compare at d winning streak of sk vs Fx buddy..!! u'l cum to kno whz d best..!!
2011-08-21 12:21
Winning streak doesnt matter. Who holds the current championship does. And its currently wid FX so FX is best team in the world currently
2011-08-21 12:28
Lolz..!! dat mnz if d very next championship EG winz den dey r d champs?? Noobness..!! :/
2011-08-21 13:35
Ofcourse dude. Then wats the use of winning championships?
2011-08-21 14:24
Yes, that's exactly what it would mean. What the fuck are you smoking?
2011-08-21 15:24
but as can be the best if fx is the first major tournament to win fx and two overtime rounds that almost lost? We are 4 months to finish this year and is the first to win fx while fnatic took the IEM5 europe, navi the world IEM5, sk DreamHack and the GameGune and was 2 rounds to win the e-Star Seoul then you I repeat the question ¿how can you say that fx is the best time based on 2 rounds of overtime?
2011-08-21 12:22
because they win by 2 rounds in overtime, SK just didnt make it, either they failed or FX just played great, either way FX played better and are currently the best team in the world when we watch the results atm.
2011-08-21 16:02
or what you tell me is that the team that wins the seoul will be considered the best team in the world just? fx although a little more than three months could not beat sk and throughout the year has not won anything and this tournament the first what happens with the winning streak that has not so sk fx? What about the other major tournaments as a DH or GG? think about things a little friend ....
2011-08-21 19:41
you are only as good as your last match =)
2011-08-22 09:33
+1 FX is the best currently.
2011-08-21 12:27

hahaha are u kidding? Sk > FX it's like 8-2 to sk i matches so stop crying plz...
2011-08-21 12:32
its 4-2 for fx in matches on tournaments this year
2011-08-21 13:42
You must be on crack. Who counts showmatches and online games? It's all about tournaments, hence FX > SK.
2011-08-21 14:06
Sweden MelleN 
4-2 tournaments so stfu
2011-08-21 15:09
fact and results proved in todays matches say Fx>SKx2

so u mean if fnatic beat fx 1 time they are nr 1 nice work dude ... retard...
2011-08-21 16:22
dude, im not dissin you but what u want me to say? That SK won eStars? that SK didnt loose twice? cmon.
2011-08-22 23:45
Love your f0rest, love him deeply and tender.
2011-08-21 20:16
nobody has to be the best
2011-08-22 16:17
SK had like 1 week training AT THE MOST! robban and face were in cyprus for 2 weeks after gamegune.. but yeah, fx played better so they won, but why would u jump to the conclusion that they are the best team in the world? thats childish
2011-08-21 12:48
loord was a onearmed bandit for almost halfyear and fx just kept him in the team, but yeah fx played better anyway so they won.
2011-08-21 15:55

Great game by FX and SK, I'm a bit sad that SK went on vacation just before eStars, but w/e it's their decision. Frightening to see only 8k watching hltv btw, CS:GO can't come soon enough.
2011-08-21 11:47
still, there is a huge diff. between sc2 and cs. a few weeks ago around 80k people were watching on the stream the finals of blizzard finals in warsaw.
2011-08-21 11:55
that's obv because most spectators live in europe, and the most of us want to sleep so early in the morning. a cs match isn't worth fucking up the circadian rhythm.
2011-08-21 12:00
@ 6 or 7 in the morning? i would say thats a very good audience tbh.

finals game started at 9.00 CEST, it's ok, but still there's no audience from SA/NA/Asia.. I would like a more global scene

2011-08-21 11:55
2011-08-21 11:56
Didn't sound like that when SK won everything. At that point they had to prove themselves over and over again to become the best team.
2011-08-21 11:59
China Specster 
before SK signed Delpan, fx was the best this year, top3 on every single tournament, then Loord has that injury, then FX didnt play DH, GG.. SK has a great team, with great players, 2 top aimers, top awper... they are awesome, yea But nowadays FX is in better shape, which means, they are better. Why? maybe because SK didn't practice too much? [taz said that on iview] maybe.. but it doesn't matter, if they knew that they woulnd need to practice more to win this event for sure they would, they didn't expect that FX could break their victories [and 0 losess]
2011-08-21 12:05
but now FX better, simple. Win or bite the dust.
2011-08-21 15:59
Yeah, real good asnwer and all that. Except you forgot one thing. WHY is Fx better than SK?
2011-08-21 20:43
Because they didnt loose, lol

100% FX is best team in the world only idiots can say not, because fx is long long long time in finals top1-3 etc.. and long time same team only pasha change because it's only one and old. They always strong and hard to destroy ! IT'S TRUE
2011-08-21 12:12
I don't know about undisputed top in the world, but they definitely can be the top team in the world in any given match or any given tournament, if they are on a hot streak. They have pasha who has now become an outstanding 5th for them, so they should stay top 5 for awhile. I should also they can easily become the best team of 2011 if they keep playing as well as they did this tournament. They need to win some more tournaments though. FX seems like they are always extremely solid, and if they do go down, its always a very tough fight for their opponents. I've always thought of them as the team with the strongest will to win since 2006.

2011-08-21 14:22
I said that FX will win on that "Win SteelSeries Na'Vi edition" thread. Great play by FX and SK, gratz!!
2011-08-21 12:13
Even though i cant stand some polish fanboys, im really happy for fx!
2011-08-21 12:13

2011-08-21 12:24
nice fx :D gg!
2011-08-21 12:24
there is no best team, because cs is a random game and one time sk win and another time fx. btw. stop speak with sk is better or fx win with lucky or the map is bad for sk, they lose because fx were just better on this tournament. peace
2011-08-21 12:25
your 100% right, everything depends on the day. This time it went to FX, hands down
2011-08-21 12:29
i agree(everything depends on day but also on opponent). i think that FX and SK are pretty on the same level and small details decides who will win.
2011-08-21 21:33
at least some polish guy know what he's talking about.. well said
2011-08-21 12:55
figth for 13,800$ and glory FragExecutors give sk 2 opportunities, FragExecutors wins in both ocassions, it eliminates any randomnes, if there ever was any.
2011-08-21 16:03
I havent heard such a bullshit for a long time. Random? So, I can create team from my dad, mother and 2 two sisters and in 100 games with FX or SK win/loose would be 50/50 ? Randomize your brain moron.
2011-08-21 16:36
Are you being serious? Use your logic, dude.
2011-08-21 21:11
Yes i did use logic. There is no such thing like random or luck.
2011-08-21 21:15

2011-08-22 16:24

because despicable korean gays want to share the prize more easily. And you can see the there are no much differences between prizes for #1~#4 because korean dreams to enter top4 by good luck and bad judge. we will don't forget World Cup 2002 in korean and japan, right?

2011-08-21 12:26
FX definitely proved they have better teamwork than SK at the moment. The one thing I've seen every time I've watched FX is just how outstanding their teamwork is. But SK has more frag power in their star players f0rest and get_right. If NaVi doesn't get back in shape then it will probably be a toss-up between these two for best team of 2011. For me, FX Teamwork: Top1 Tactics: Top3 Fragpower: Top5 Fighting Spirit: Top1 SK: Teamwork: Top3 Tactics: Top2 Fragpower: Top1 Fighting Spirit: Top3
2011-08-21 12:28
Nice analysis :)
2011-08-21 12:35
fragpower? ur absolutely wrong! take a look at the stats neo best rated player, not counting aslak ofc, FX best rated team.. so i dont really understand how u can say that tbh
2011-08-21 12:57
Yea they had a good tournament, but I am just going by the results this year overall. GeT_RiGHT has been the best rated player at almost every tournament he has played at, and f0rest has been the MVP at least once (twice?) Robban has also been fragging very well for his igl role, face is always very solid, and Delpan is probably the #1 or #2 AWPer at the moment (shared with Markeloff). FX has Neo, who is as good as get_right or f0rest, but the rest of FX aren't players who I would say are top5 or top10 in the world in fragpower alone. They are all very good, obviously, but I think individually SK's other players equal or outshine them. But we will see. Obviously this tournament they put up big numbers. I still think FX isn't a team that relies on individual performances as much as teamwork and willpower - even Neo doesn't seem to be as much of a one-man army as in previous years, relying more on his team.
2011-08-22 00:25
no i feel you are wrong over there Team work of SK > rest of the teams that y they are winning consistently the Calls were too slow on FX CT side SK players were immediate on the calls on CT side they detected each fake rush and gave hard fight to FX each round but for SK in T side the rounds were getting over pretty fast because the FX-CT were slow on the calls most of the time
2011-08-22 19:08
Omg, stopped watching at 14:14 @ de_inferno... And I really thought, that SK has it. But FX got their shit together and came out as a winner. Very well done! Congratulations.
2011-08-21 12:29
what a loss man!!! you missed one of the best games a draw and then just 1 tie breaker very interesting map
2011-08-22 19:04
Ohh finaly someone stopped SK... and I'm happy that it was FX :) I think it's good for next important tournaments because if SK won this one they could feel to confident after so many victories. PS good game FX and SK !

If they put prizes only until the 6th place, they will have $36640,00 more to split between the really team who deserved to won some money... The 1st place could get a prize like $30000,00 Much better than just $13800
2011-08-21 12:54
2011-08-21 13:07
lol how can u agree with that? in every single pro-league or cup or w/e, everybody gets a prize. not talking about e-sports though, im talking about real pro games, like football, basket etc otherwise only the winners would survive, which would kill the sport.. i dont know how u can agree with that but ok
2011-08-21 13:34
point made
2011-08-22 19:11
2011-08-21 13:16
It's helping keep CS alive since more teams had good motives to travel. From a spectators point of view the final stages lose some of it's spark though. Whether or not CS needs being kept alive or that the pricemoney is actually good, just that valve and riot make them seem really low i don't know.
2011-08-21 13:23
thats dumb..
2011-08-21 13:32
Not really, you should consider the travel cost for most teams to attend this event. If they decided to put the prize money as you stated above, I'm 100% sure that the next or even this damn event would be teamless.
2011-08-21 16:06
I Agree, and its not dumb, its not like we are santa and give money for all. lol
2011-08-21 16:07
Brazil brutAo 
Something like that... I agree that prizes for all encourage more teams to go for the tournament, but the same time it stimulates small squads, that discourages the major organizations too.. I don't know if my opinion was totally clear, but that was not how they should do the prizes distribution but just an example to differentiate a winner from a loser.. with the prizes distribution that was chosen, there's no big difference in being the first or third place.. in my opinion
2011-08-21 18:13
So that way only a minority of teams would participate in each tournament. Where's the logi in that?
2011-08-22 16:30
hmm,maybe I change my mind, rigth its better that all get a slice thats ok, but the winners slice should be bigger than 2nd place than it was in estars.
2011-08-22 23:50
Ah, now you do understand when cArn says cs is far from what it was :)

2011-08-21 14:07
FX were just better today no doubt, but this fucking fanboys are just sooo ridiculously irritating. I mean, SK won 1 tournament, "was their first win they arent the best", after 3 won tournaments they still needed to prove something to someone to be called the best in the world, and now comes FX who gets 1 win in a tournament past like 6 months, and theyre currently the best team. I mean, REALLY?! How dumb can some people really be? Jesus effing christ.

2011-08-21 16:09
I think NAVI will be better than SK in bo3. SK beat NAVI two times lately, both in NUKE which NAVI is not good at. This new SK still needs to prove themselves.
2011-08-21 16:21
2011-08-21 16:28

1. Frag eXecutors $13,800 2. SK Gaming $11,000 3. Natus Vincere $9,200 4. mTw $7,350 I would say that is the exact rankings of this year!!

Nooo , Neo outclass f0rest. In 2 matches FX vs SK Neo has +19 KD , f0rest -4. Agree with FX = SK.
2011-08-21 20:06
Well that's just 2 matches, I'm sayin in general that f0rest vs Neo is always fun to watch. Even if Neo was better this time :-)
2011-08-21 20:10
thats right.
2011-08-21 20:12
it was just luck. This went well with good FX but SK will have revenge

2011-08-21 20:54
After this, we can probably say that there is no best team in the world at the moment. We've got FX, SK, Na'Vi and mTw, who all have the chance to become the best. The teams are so close right now, no chance to decide which part is the best. Anywhooo, congratulations to Fx with your win!

FX / SK best *)^_^
2011-08-22 16:17
So if SK wouldnt have forgot about the bomb as terrorist on inferno, leading to lost 3v1, forcing them to eco the next round, SK would have been the best team in the world? Does the title "the best team in the world" depend on a forgotten bomb? Wow you cant have much of a brain. Would have been 16-14 to SK if they didnt forget the bomb. I cant believe they forgot it. So fucking stupid
2011-08-22 16:31
It goes to show that all it takes is that one mistake in what was otherwise a very even match. It is rare to see a top5 team make a mistake like that, but sooner or later, it happens to the best.
2011-08-23 02:15
WinFakt solid top 5
2011-08-22 17:14
nice for FX, is my favorite team, apart from mousesports. FX is much better than SK, and there's no doubt.
2011-08-22 18:27
What is the next tournament? :D
2011-08-22 18:36
2011-08-22 18:55

the final was like BO3 , D2 FX>SK , 16:9 tuscan sk>FX ,9:16 inf FX >SK , 19:17 so FX 2:1 SK . how can you say SK > FX 90% on BO3?
