fnatic has beaten New4 in K1 League Season 2's third place decider 2-1 (10-16 de_train, 16-3 de_tuscan, 16-12 de_dust2) to win 30,000 RMB (~$4,800) in their final tourney prior to CS:GO switch.
The world's best Counter-Strike 1.6 team in 2012 started off their final matches in the older version of the game in Shanghai with a 2-13 half as terrorists on de_train. They attempted a comeback after half time, but could only hit double digits before New4 clinched the opening map.
Second map de_tuscan was completely different, as the Danes showed strong terrorist play while dominating New4 almost as well as they had in the previous map, but by topping it with a clear 4-0 second half for a 16-3 win.
It all came down to de_dust2 where fnatic surprisingly scored eleven rounds as the defenders, while struggling as terrorists. Ultimately they were able to get the needed five rounds, and they secured a podium finish at K1 League Season 2. The VOD is available here.Broken tag
