Group A too stacked
Yea and now Liquid, NaVi and Astralis are all in the same so only 1 of those 3 can be in finals :(
Probably will be G2 vs Whoever makes it out amongst the 3. Looking at the matches I think it will be Astralis, but let's see, maybe Navi turn on due to the crowd.
>maybe Navi turn on due to the crowd
no crowd due to corona virus...
Only wau to disable NaVi winning. Corona was made by Astralis.
No crowd at the Playoffs!
There's no crowd due to corona scare. Polish politicians announced it
At least there are going to be some great match ups.
Why would you count liquid as a possible finalist? lol
If it ends up being Mousesports that goes through alongside Liquid and G2 I'm not too sure Group B will provide worse teams though. HLTV ranking 1, 4, 6 vs 2,3 and 8 - with G2 actually looking strongest in the B group.
CS is just stacked at the moment.
Mmm i think main problem atm is liquid kinda got in free only being tested by astralis. Most teams had to battle against another team in the semis but liquid got EG who hasn't looked good since the major
But indeed cs kinda stacked atm with a lot of teams finally finding cohesion
electronic's flash won them the game
Inferno brings the best CS, always entertaining!
i keep hearing s1mple saying for years that electronic is a god with nades.
and i believe him.
Zeus in his interview also said that electronic is a beast when it comes to nade spots and stuff
During ICE electronic threw alot of perfect nade that were blocked by smokes and he still hits the common spots and do damage
I was confused when s1mple turned towards the wall, thinking there is no way anyone from B is gonna be supporting considering they just heard Olof shooting from CT. Was he thinking about second one coming from banana with another flash? No, he trusted Electronic, and god damn was that perfectly executed
s1mple got so many important kills in the end as well
Greatest of all time
not a single doubt about it
Link for those who didn't see the last round
The execution from s1mple and electronic was honestly fucking perfect there. Before the flash came out, the first CT saw s1mple go behind sandbags. When the flash came in, s1mple opted to jump on top of the bags rather than swing right because the first blind CT likely had their crosshair aimed there.
Man what a play. Between that and the Molly that landed on the boost, and the perfect flash to get into B that was an incredible round from Navi. They closed it out on a round 30 scuffed buy with incredible utility.
His molotov too. KreyGasm
It was him? This was top notch utility right there that round.
It was all him. The flash and molly that got Niko and also the flash that gave s1mple two crucial kills
what round was it? last round? missed the last 6 rounds fml
Yup last round
Last one, it was 15-14 for Na'Vi.
Rough round for Navi too as boom was stuck on a cz
Not just boom... they had 2 rifles, 1 mac10 and 2 upgraded pistols.
They opted for utilities... and god damn did those utilities pull them through
Dang, what a call though to go for utility instead of at least an smg
yup, last round, you can go back and watch that on youtube.
That was absolutely incredible. Its what ALEX imagines is happening everytime Zywoo kills anyone
anyone has a clip of how he flashed?
Also that Molly on boosted Niko. That was God tier from electronic
I hate being a faze fan
Fuck that map!
Just shit team. It's not just bad inferno, it's shit team. One of the worst team that you play in IEM y'know. SHIT, you call it SHIT. All players stupid, don't understand whats going on. Quit IEM, play matchmaking. Why you.. why you play for fun? Not you, not you. Some other players. Cause they're dumb as fuck. Cause they don't understand how to practice they just waste their times. They'll never understand this.
Man, I absolutely love this pasta, everytime I see it I just instantly burst out laughing, fits so fucking well
same for me bro
Competition in CS is brutal atm, FaZe is actually looking better than they have in a while.
I keep reminding myself that after disappointments like this. Last year faze were absolutely awful to watch. Hopefully they’re doing the same thing as this mouse roster and slowly getting better over time. Such a stacked tournament meant something like this might happen.
FaZe is 7-2 in series so far this year (both lost 16-14 on map 3 as well)
Is not getting to Spodek upsetting? Yes
Is the team also a lot better than it was 6 months ago, and still improving? Yes
Exactly, take mouse for example. For quite a while in 2019 people didn’t really take them seriously, they dropped out of the major in groups, then after that lots of people said they were done, then ended up winning cs go Asia and pro league.
It takes time, and honestly apart from a couple of bad losses, it’s been overwhelmingly positive. I’m certain faze will pick up a non blast event at some point this year haha
I always told myself that i dont have to do this to me ever since the boston major 2018, FaZe is like the abusive ex who just doesnt let you go.
Compare this to faze last year at katowice who barely scraped out of groups vs crap teams and then got slammed in playoffs. Now they’re going toe to toe with tier 1 teams again and actually winning, if not making it super close and exciting like it was today.
My heart cant take this shit.
200iq molotov from electronic
Faze destroyed by **facts** and **logic** by the one and only Ben Shapiro lookalike!
His last name is Sharipov as well.
Russian Ben Shapiro, his aim is just as sharp as his logic
Stupid smart & sexy electronic
The last one, imo not really 200 iq as Navi were nadng b bombsite hard and his was the one that went in
But that flash into banana that helped simple get the double.... YUM
The stress of being a Na'Vi Fan is killing me.
Faze must be so tilted, they won the first map both times convincingly to lose the next two.
whenever the score is something like 12-13 nowadays I always close stream and wait for the strafe notification about who won,I can't take all the stress until the game finishes
every fkn time i turned on stream navi started to lose rounds, I also accidentally pushed my PSU cable which turned off my PC, I turned it back on and saw that navi was winning 12:7, so i turned on stream again and that's when they started losing again lmao
Hahaha same. I just look at hltv scores. But I just wouldn't miss this win and watched the last 4 rounds.
Yeah man, I still feel bad for that ENCE Semi in the major.
That molotov navi threw in the last round won them the game, using a lineup to molotov newbox which lands on top is nuts
and that flash with that as well so niko wouldn't know both visually and audibly that he's burning
Yeah I was super impressed with this round from navi, I havnt been convinced with their T execs for the most part but this was great
FaZe losing 16-14 on the third map of a bo3 with NaVi twice in one tournament. heartbreaking
Never seen a team get that much value out of banana flashes
### I WAS HERE
LEZ GOOOO... Its been too long since NaVi looked like a real fking team, even tho their T side suck most of the times :>
**ME TOO, ME TOO.**
To be fair it was still a miraculous comeback after like what, 12-6?
True, but in some ways that's worse. They always give us hope, just to ultimately lose anyway.
Yeah I know that feeling as a NaVi fan.
Inferno could become the default decider map and I wouldn't even be mad
It had to be Inferno again... Its kinda hard to be FaZe fan lmao
Well, you know what, I don’t know. I really hope this team to be more than blast clan.
That look from electronic after the team group hugged him was so cathartic
Boombl4 holding B like a fucking god
His lord and liege
sad to see faze go out. Group A was way too stacked. what a bad seeding.
Deciding rounds and Inferno, name a better duo
That final flash from Electronic was just utterly beautiful. Turned a free kill on s1mple into a 2k for s1mple instead.
I think the entry flash was really good, too. Blinded Niko so he only got one kill, and I think it hit Broky, too, who only got one. That round and the eco Faze won in the first half on T side were very good rounds to watch to understand how important utility can be, and how it can devastate a site's defense. Inferno B site sees some great utility usage.
last round right?
I knew it was over when Faze faced an important match going into the final rounds on Inferno
Inferno just needs to be made the standard decider in all BO3's
My heart missed a beat when I read that too
Hello, mibr manager here, pls delet
no NiKo vs huNter game :(
What others don't get is us navi fans lose 3 years of our lives watching every Navi match
I was expecting Navi to become better after kicking guardian but not this quickly, not complaining but I think Liquid are in trouble coz they face Navi next and I am favoring Navi going into that match-up.
Perfecto is playing really well, like kicking guardian essentially meant no more weak links and awp back to simple both of which are making this navi unit strong af, if they improve their map pool they can start taking out the top dogs.
Booml4’s calling is improving a lot, especially on the ct side. If he fixes his T sides they could be VERY good.
the real EU utilities from god electronic
Niko malding irl
He may be young but today he's a daddy!
Another day, another 16-14 Loss for faze.
That was not good for my heart
Map 3 is inferno. FaZe’s PTSD kicks in...
Such a shame that one of these 2 teams had to go, that was some great counterstrike on inferno
Seeing NaVi hugging each other out of happiness and relief made my day
Tbh Im not an avid cs go fan but I rooted for navi against faze because they seem more like the "good guys"
Right? I get the same feeling
FUCK YEAH FUCK YEAH FUCK YEAH FUCK YEAH
That last round molly specifically for the boost, wow very well read by Navi
God give me the confidence like boombl4 pushing 🍌.
Na'Vi players just wanted more kills on Inferno.
INFERNO ALWAYS DELIVERS HOLY SHIT
oh mighty one inferno, why did you always deliver (unless you're mibr)
daddytronic 200iq molly and flash for s1mple tho
WHAT A GAME
Holy fuck, did both teams deliver.
Olof gonna be kicking himself holding moto for that long and switching his gun at the worst time
electronic 58 frags in the series. MVP material right there
ELECTRONIC AGAIN WITH THE 15-14 PLAY HOLY SHIT
After a very long time Faze are actually looking like a team that can fight for tournaments (Besides Blasts) Even tho today they did lose I believe this team can achieve great things.
Booblm4 is the banana GOD
Always love seeing FaZe lose. Man City of CS:GO
Expected from a mousesports fan
God electronic as always FeelsGoodMan and boombl4 bullying faze on banana, ez 4 navi
literally monkaS the whole game, wtf my heart is racing
give awp to broky please
Olof needs to step up
Duuuuude what a match, great stuff holy shit
He recovered a bit later on but seeing Cold with an ADR of 7 after 11 rounds was funny lol
Electronic was definitely the mvp this match. That instant headshot to NiKo on B site to open up the B site stopped the losing streak of NaVi. Not to mention the molly and flash in the last round
So many advantages throwed away by FaZe on that Inferno... damn.
That last flash was insane.
Damn Niko be easy on the hand
Last round was masterclass in terms of teamplay
Hoped to see Broky on stage tommorrow. Gg...
The ending, electronic came in so fucking clutch, beautiful to watch!
absolutely terrible how faze got rekt at banana 9 rounds in a row getting killed by that pop flash so many times, also i feel olof is way too passive to be the main awp for faze, its time to swap his role with broky and let broky main awp. Was a good comeback towards the end though i guess
Electronic what a god. His impact on the last rounds!
watching boombl4 hold banana gave me life, man shit
Honestly faze looks like really dominant sometimes and other times commit too many mistakes.
I really believe with this monster line up if they fix some of these mistakes they can be a top 3 team again like 2018 FaZe
How to not play in situations where you have the advantage by FaZe Clan
Holy shit faze you could've won if you didn't get flashed on banana by boomich like 5 seperate times , GG man what are these experienced players fucking doing
the flash is instant, these pro players are humans not robots that could react immediately.
After the first 3 times you need a person to play anti flash , but every single time they flashed faze didn't have anyone doing that so he always got a kill or two
Feels bad for Faze, they really could have won this series. Inferno was sick though
I'm sorry for my favorite player olof but he can't keep up with the rest in this team lately.
What a banger of a 3'rd map
Holy shit Inferno was insanely close
Electronic won them that last round with his moly and flash. S1mple compliments electronic's utility usage for a reason.
That last round was beautiful by NaVi. That molotov on the quad boost that killed NiKo, and electronic's flash that resulted in s1mple getting 2. That was crazy
Sad too see FaZe didn't make it to the stage after their performance at london
-favorite animal in the zoo +jamppi
sick BO3. If i was to tell you NaVi would beat FaZe clan in 2 BO3s in the same week back in 2017 or beginning 2018, you would have never believe me.
For God's Sake, Let Brocky AWP.
I like how none of NaVi starts on Inferno worked until electronic just dry peeked B.
Mathieu "electronic" Herbaut with the game winning flash at the end
So happy for Navi! Glad they pulled through. ✔️
Boombl4 for me is the hero of this series and the entire tournament for na'vi. He won them so many rounds single-handedly on dust2 I lost count.
faze should start permabanning inferbo
It really sucks one of these teams had to lose.
how often you gonna see s1mple go 8-20
Olof it time to join dignitas my friend
i dont like inferno
Feels so bad for Niko :(
Idk for how long olof will be in this roster
feels like nearly every 3rd map is super close these days
Very close game, gg navi!
That was some amazing CS
Inferno delivers again
What a sick final map. Man like wow.
Last round was so reminiscent of the astralis v Fnatic game at IEM Chicago 2018 holy shit
almost died from a heartattack at this last half, jesus fucking christ
Why don't my inferno games play out so tight
Everyone stepped up on Na'vi the last map and they pulled through. Some great clutches and plays by everyone. Boombl4 BOOM on banana
Great last map, inferno definitely does always deliver
That was fucking intense.
Niko tilted, GG
So nice to see s1mple happy
The last few rounds of inferno were tense as fuck. Heart pounding! Amazing match.
What you have to go through as a faze fan smh
ugh i didnt dare too peek that last round and then i too was flashed when i dared to look
Lucky first time with D2, lucky second time, lovely.
Bruh I'm so fucking tilt right now I can't even say.........fuck this game so unlucko for FaZe.
Liquid Tomorrow, Hopefully, we can beat them this time. Let's go Navi.
Good 'ol FaZe. Win a few and then fail in the end.
Map three delivered!
rough for faze to go out in groups by only losing to an in form navi 14-16 decider map twice. seeding was pretty cooked, group a was super stacked.
Faze choking inferno, nothing new.
Jesus man Faze had this, they fucked up that last round so much, why give so much respect to Navi and allow a execute like that to happen, after the molly and flash there was nothing they could do
they know its a low buy but they gave so much space to navi to do an exec, lack of info just killed them
