fnatic are the winners of Copenhagen Games 2012, following an amazing match and a quadruple overtime win over Natus Vincere in the Grand final (28:25 on de_dust2).

The Grand final of Copenhagen Games 2012 pitted the until-then undefeated new lineup of fnatic against Natus Vincere who fought through almost the entire lower bracket to reach the last match. The Swedish-Danish squad needed to win only one map, while the Ukrainians needed to win two in order to get to first place.

The match started on de_dust2, with Natus Vincere on the favored Terrorist side. However, fnatic were the ones who seemed more focused early on, as they racked up a 4-0 lead before letting a round go. They increased the lead to 6-2 following some aggressive play, but then Natus Vincere woke up.

The Ukrainians slowly but surely won round after round, and managed to turn the score to their favor 8-6, mainly by attacking the A bombsite. In the last round of the half, fnatic's main AWPer Michael "Friis" Jørgensen stepped up after being completely unnoticed the previous fourteen rounds, as he made two impressive AWP kills and then won a 1vs1 situation to make the score 8-7.

As the second half went under way, Sergey "starix" Ischuk starred in the pistol-round, getting 4 headshots by defending B from his usual spot. That certainly brought the spirits up in the Ukrainian camp and they went on to win another three rounds for a 12-7 lead.

In the next few rounds, impressive individual play saved fnatic from further doom, starting with Richard "Xizt" Landström's 4-kill action in the A bombsite. Right after that, Michael "Friis" Jørgensen won a 1vs3 situation in B, and two rounds later Finn "karrigan" Andersen took out four Na`Vi members to get to a 12-11 score and force another eco.


fnatic's new in-game leader keeping them in the game

With the score standing at 12-12, Natus Vincere finally stopped fnatic's onslaught and went on to reach match point at 15-12. The Swedes and the Danes were up to the task though, as they managed to bring the match to overtime winning three rounds in a row.

Na`Vi already had an overtime clash a few hours earlier today, when they defeated Lemondogs on this very map 19-17, although on that occasion they were the ones playing catch up in the end and finally emerging as winners.

Sides didn't change for the first half of overtime, with fnatic attacking successfully to take their first lead since the early parts of the match, 16-15. Natus Vincere replied straight away, but fnatic ended up leading 17-16 after the first part, mainly thanks to an unexpected solo push by Andreas "MODDII" Fridh that opened up the B bombsite.

After the side change, fnatic defended A impressively and climbed up to championship point at 18-16. With everything to lose, Natus Vincere desperately needed to stay in the game, and they managed to convert a 3-on-5 situation to make the score 18-17. Another attack on the B bombsite proved to be fruitful for the Ukrainians as they evened the score at 18-18 and brought the match into second overtime.

This time the sides did change before the start of the next overtime, fnatic starting as Terrorists and once again going into the lead first, 19-18. A 1vs2 clutch by Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko brought the score to 19-19, before his team came out on top of a big confrontation at long A to finally get into the lead in the overtime, 20-19.

At the start of the second half of the second overtime, fnatic evened the score to 20-20 thanks to solid individual play by Rasmus "Gux" Ståhl in a 3-on-3 retake, as he took down all Na`Vi members including a 1vs1. The Ukrainians went back into the lead and match point shortly, but fnatic saved themselves in the last round to take the map into third overtime, 21-21.

Natus Vincere continued attacking at the start of the third overtime, and they went up 22-21 thanks to Yegor "markeloff" Markelov and Ioann "Edward" Sukhariev converting a 2-on-4 situation. Markelov had another impressive round after that, getting four AWP kills and almost winning a 1vs2 situation with 1hp, but Jørgensen defused the bomb to even the score at 22-22. Still, Na`Vi did get ahead 23-22 before the sides changed, and shortly after went onto match point at 24-22.


markeloff played a big role for Na`Vi in the third overtime

Facing defeat, fnatic were saved by Andreas "MODDII" Fridh's 4-kill round that brought the score to 24-23 and then they found a way to win another one, taking the match into yet another overtime, fourth for those who are counting.


MODDII saves fnatic in third overtime

At the start of the 4th overtime, Natus Vincere was the first one to win a round, but fnatic was the one to end up ahead at half time, 26-25. Shortly after, fnatic climbed on championship point once again at 27-25. This time there was no saving the Ukrainians as the celebrations started for fnatic following an incredible 28-25 victory.

WTF??? WHERE BO3?
2012-04-08 00:58
Fnatic played in the upper brackets and they needed to win only 1 to win it all
2012-04-08 00:59
Nu'bi came from lower (loser) bracket and had to win two maps. fnatic was unbeaten and only needed the one map. Easy peasy. GG
2012-04-08 01:00
"Nu'bi" LOL. They were more tired. They would have won it. Anyway, gg. Extremelly well played by both parts.
2012-04-08 01:13
"they were more tired". that seems like an excuse to me ;)

+1 i think so too but imo WinFakt had that factor cause they never won SK or Na'Vi in BO3 and now they did them both.. their game fell apart from the exhausting matches and to self confidence which they got a little too much by winning them both 2-0..
2012-04-08 17:11
True, dispite not making it to the final imo WF was indeed the revelation of the tournament by beating both SK and NaVi.. I think they deserved the 2nd place :)

gg fnatic well played
2012-04-08 00:59
Deserved! This shows how bad cArn was ;) And HeatoN said it out loud ;)
2012-04-08 00:59
what did he say?
2012-04-08 01:00
that carn was a horrible player but the best IGL
2012-04-08 01:01
Walle did say he was a bad player and even him could be better than him without playing CS for years and they did well by recruiting a good aimer.
2012-04-08 01:01
heaton said that
2012-04-08 01:09
That cArn was bad and couldn't get ANY frags and even him would do a lot better even though he was inactive for some years now.
2012-04-08 01:02
when heaton was in his last years of his career he sucked ass how the hell can he say that ?
2012-04-08 01:37
He was still better than cArn ;)
2012-04-08 02:24
at that time no he wasnt : P
2012-04-08 17:47
Great tournament by fnatic
2012-04-08 00:59
Great game, but fnatic still have a few things to fix, like that 1v1 with karrigan, and some other small stuff. They gonna be even better later this season, so they are a team to watch in the following months.
2012-04-08 00:59
YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH g0g0g0 fnatic nice !!!!!!!!

"take that lurppis" I dont think he gives a shit for your writings :D He's cs-expert and gave him thoughts about tournament. Anything just can happen as we all saw.
2012-04-08 01:01
But it feels like he's not totally neutral. He dislikes SK a little bit for only relying on aim and not team play
2012-04-08 01:09
True and he also dislikes fnatic for sure..
2012-04-08 01:32
Yeah, hes an expert and his teams does better without him rofl

2012-04-08 01:39
really?where was finland when EG had lurppis?where was finland without him tbh?and its not like winfakt have not been sucessful without him
2012-04-08 18:01
Where is winfakt without lurppis? Oh yeah, top3 CPH 2012. Lurppis is just overrated piece of shit.
2012-04-08 18:03
You have no right to talk like that about anyone. Your idiotic, childish and rude behavior makes me sick. Listen my advice and go to school. It will help you to realize how stupid you were.
2012-04-08 18:46
You mad? He trashtalks fnatic i trashtalk him.
2012-04-08 18:53
You know it's not true. I can assume that you are fnatic's fan, but you have to accept a fact that they weren't favorites to win this tournament or to take any medal at all. He just gave his personal opinion what will happen. I'm sure that you believed in your favorite team, but you just couldn't rationally expect them to be on top. Probably, other fans of other teams would react the same if their favorite teams weren't top3 at least, so it's not really fair to blame lurppis for giving his opinion.

This was the best cs I've seen in my 8-9 years of spectating (the tournament overall) :) Congratulations to fnatic for their consistent gaming and to NaVi for taking down one by one every team I cheered for. Regarding the stream, I think walle and heaton are the best commentators, just a little bit of practice so they would catch on camera more interesting frags (also it was funny how heaton left walle alone to probably watch the action live :))) EDIT: HLTV.org should make a movie, there's a huge amount of material to work with.

outstanding tournament! amazing performances shown by so many teams and individuals. everyone deserved their place. sadly my favorite only placed 7-8th but that's fine, it should make them find out the solution and in next tournament, they will show what they are made of.

fnatic - cArn = probably no fnatic today : ) winfakt - lurppis = no finland in the map?
2012-04-08 01:43
WinFakt was INSANE this tournament! I hope this team sticks together... or at least let the igl roll to BASiC and lurppis takes a rifler part.
2012-04-08 01:13
agree on that, i dont think dRiim played any better than lurppis, but they had more freedom or something with BASiCs tactics
2012-04-08 01:27
I agree they played their own game which i think with lurpiss they were afraid to do so because he doesnt risk that much he is a classic IGL.

Excuse?! Yes, they losed in winners bracket because they did not expect this kind of gameplay from WinFakt. And look, they still came UP from loosers bracket winning vs. lemondogs and other teams, they played 5 maps in a row, they was not tired? And look at the score, 28:25 isn't it funny? Bo1. What would be in Bo3? Ah, we can discuss and discuss about this shit but whatever, fnatic did good job making really nice antri-strats versus Na`Vi (everyone making them seriously more than for other teams). Let's see what happens after changes, I mean in other tournament because after this tournament EVERY team will do some change in team, maybe some one will change players. I know for sure that every team will change strats and will look more serious at mid teams... :) Amazing tournament, almost no delays. Very crazy games, a lot of changes in teams. -1 for organisators because of HeatoN and walle's stream for finals. Anyway, thank you for this kind of tournament.
2012-04-08 11:43
it was bo3 but fnatic came from WB ... and yes its excuse ... they must know if they go to lb it will be realy hard get to finals and underestimated so they lost and they were tired their fault ... i feel sorry for them after loosing after draw and well played match + i think everyone were exhausted bcuz fnatic played more maps bcuz of bo3
2012-04-08 11:51
whatever
2012-04-08 12:17
whatever? That's not the correct ending of your fanboyish discussion. They knew that they we're going through a hard time coming up from the looser brackets and in fact, alot of mid teams we're playing awesome but a team as NaVi stands a good chance of beating them all. I don't think they met ANY high seeded team in the lower brackets.. It's more then fair for fnatic to start with 1-0 since if it was a normal tournament NaVi would be out early in the quarter-final. Just face the fact and stop being such a fanboy.
2012-04-08 13:45
Am I fanboy? Read WHAT THE FUCK YOU JUST WRITED and think twice before saying that I AM FANBOY. Damn I love ppl from Sweden.
2012-04-08 13:50
Only because I feel kind today, I read my sentences again. And yes, you are a fanboy. Oh, you haven't noticed that "fan of Zeus"? Well I guess you have now. I can commit I am a fanboy of fnatic, but at least im not playing smart trying to defend their reputation. Dude, your just sick..
2012-04-08 14:50
If you think that I'm trying to defend something then u're really fucked up. Did I say'd fnatic doesn't deserve this win? Did I say'd something? I'm just saying this isn't best of three and that's it, face it. And fuk yea, I am fan of Zeus and what? "That's not the correct ending of your fanboyish discussion." I can say same shit about you, now you are fanboyishing =P
2012-04-08 15:27
As i said they dont have chance vs Na`Vi in normal circumstances.
2012-04-08 11:46
bitch please they would crush them like esc its not 2k10
2012-04-08 11:53
Please dont reply me anymore , you prooved ur inteligence.
2012-04-08 12:01
yeah i wont keep it up navi fan boi they were exhausted gg
2012-04-08 12:14
LOL! Stop fu**ng trolling, "navi fan boy, navi fan boy" you are fnatic fan boy and shut the hell up, stop calling others fanboys when u're the main fanboy who cant listen to other ppl opinions, damn, da hell is wrong with these people? Go meet with your girlfriend if you have one, just don't sit with your main brotha - PC.
2012-04-08 12:19
watch out we have mad real life bad ass over here btw if he dont try do execuse with "they were exhausted thats why they lost" man these guys are used to play 10 hours a day ... yeah ure fanboy if u think that navi would crush fnatic if they werent exhausted when both team were exhausted same :)
2012-04-08 18:44
Rofl, how sad is that? Navi trains all day 8-10 hours and youre telling me they cant handle 5/6 bo1s? LOOOL fnatic played nearly the same maps as Navi, dont fucking bullshit me. fnatic is the true champion, they beat everyone they faced and there is no way you can deny it.
2012-04-08 17:19
Thats just bullshit excuses imo. Fnatic had to wait for Navi to play, that makes them tired too you know? While Navi kept playing all day and making their game at the top fnatic had to wait, losing some gameplay.
2012-04-08 17:17
Ill just say , gkzr - fan of Gux(Fnatic) antrqxk - noboys fan. You are breanless if you dont understand this. Cya
2012-04-08 17:43
LOL Just because i support a player doesnt mean i cannot agree with something agaisnt him you idiot. You know what i said its true and you also support someone. Navi trains EVERY DAY 8-10 HOURS and they did what? 6 bo1s? YOU'RE SAD. The tired excuse is just lame. They are fucking professional players which are used to play lots of hours per day. EDIT: ON YOUR PROFILE- Clan: Na`Vi. PRETTY MUCH OWNED YEAH?
2012-04-08 17:52
IM PRETTY MUCH OWNED.. NOT. Pass me you fool.
2012-04-08 19:14
You're just fucking lame. Your team got fucking owned. FNATIC > navi.
2012-04-08 20:07
Mine team , yeah i own them.

This also mean in your case. Bye
2012-04-08 21:14
At least my english is understandable. Bye 3rd world faggot. NAVI sucks
2012-04-08 21:41
Ok you have now serious problems in your little head. Go to the doctor.Psychiatrist would be desirable.
2012-04-08 21:53
Yeah at least there are doctors in portugal.. in servia there is a pile of junk lololol
2012-04-09 01:21
Servia ? I dont know that place , sorry. Mate you lose the battle, also the war. Override me before you even more disgrace yourself.
2012-04-09 10:50
Rofl the battle and the war? I couldnt care less about this little discussion with you. Fnatic won fair and square and NAVI were totally defeated, tired or not, thats just bullshit, they are professionals, they have a gaming house in which they game every day and you tell me they are tired after some bo1's? Mate please, make hltv a favour and start to know how to watch CS. Fnatic gave no chance and they were the best team on the tournament along with winfakt, still fnatic was better. About the "battle" thing, rofl. Im a fan of Gux and a fan of fnatic, you're a fan of NAVI, so we both have an opinion, but that "tired" excuse is just fucking lame.
2012-04-09 14:20
Haha ,ok , now you are realy tired , go to the bed.
2012-04-09 14:28
Owned pretty much yeah? <3 What a stupid guy. NAVI fan.. what else :D
