Eleague Major Teams Entertainment VideoELEAGUE Major 2017 - Groups Day 3, Team Liquid vs. FaZe Clan BO1: Full Match
S1mple is arguably the greatest player in Counter-Strike right now, but his performance alone hasn't been enough to bring Na'Vi consistent wins.
If the team can work together and stay levelheaded, the ELeague Major could go to Na'Vi, but without consistency it's hard to put faith in them. Gambit Esports — Gambit just isn't the same team it used to be.
Ivan "Spaze" Obrezhan and Dmitry "Hooch" Bogdanov left the team in October and Gambit gained Na'Vi's previous leader Daniil "Zeus" Teslenko.
Though the team won DreamHack Winter in November, the competition wasn't very strong at all. And on top of that, it has primarily failed to qualify for most premier tournaments or has placed below fourth over the past year.
Gambit will probably lose its Legend status after the ELeague Major. FlipSid3 Tactics — FlipSid3, similar to Gambit, is not a strong team going into the Major.
The squad has consistently lost to middle- and bottom-tier pro teams, not qualified for multiple premier tournaments over the past year and has not placed above fifth in premier tournaments in all of FlipSid3 Tactics will not likely be a Legend for Major after ELeague.
SEE ALSO: Will Ferrell will be starring in a comedy about esports. Godsent — Godsent is the newest team at the Major and was the first team to qualify for the ELeague Major, going on a run against G2 Esports, Dignitas and HellRaisers.
Godsent formed in April and has since acquired former Fnatic players Jesper "JW" Wecksell and Robin "Flusha" Rönnquist, but has yet to place well in big tournaments.
The team is still finding its place after multiple trades over the past several months and probably won't be the top team at the ELeague Major.
FaZe Clan — FaZe Clan also went at the ELeague Major qualifier this past weekend against Cloud9, OpTic Gaming and Immortals. With those wins against Cloud9 and OpTic, FaZe showed it's a pretty solid team against big players, helped by the recent addition from Astralis, Finn "Karrigan" Andersen.
On the other side, ELiGE had 22 kills and Pimp had 19 to lead Liquid. GODSENT pulled off another upset against OpTic as the North American team could never pull itself together.
Lekr0 had 25 kills and znajder had 20 to take care of OpTic. OpTic was eliminated. The defending champions went against the current world number one.
Although Astralis was favored, SK managed to come back from a slight deficit and win in overtime. SK moved on to the playoffs even though many people had the team written off since it had a stand-in.
In a very close match, Gambit was the final team to move on in round four after both halves went in favor of Gambit. AdreN continued to roll through competition with 34 kills.
GODSENT nearly pulled off another upset. North edged out GODSENT in overtime and came back from a situation to winning three straight games.
RUBINO and Magisk had 35 kills each to lead North while Lekr0 had 34 kills and JW had This would mark the first time flusha and JW would not appear in a major playoffs, leaving just five players who have appeared in major playoffs: olofmeister, KRiMZ, device, dupreeh, and Xyp9x.
GODSENT was eliminated and North acquired a Legends spot. FaZe defeated EnVyUs in a relatively close match. SIXER struggled again with 9 kills and FaZe moved on to the playoffs and EnVyUs was eliminated again after winning DreamHack Cluj-Napoca The last match of the group stage featured the favorite to win the tournament against last major's runner-up.
Liquid never got in the right direction and Astralis dominated for an east victory. The core three of Astralis kept its streak of appearing in the playoffs alive and Liquid was eliminated.
Natus Vincere and Virtus. These two teams would face an opponent from the pool of Astralis, FaZe Clan, and North. Natus Vincere was paired with Astralis and Virtus.
From the pool of Gambit Gaming, Fnatic, and SK Gaming, two teams were randomly selected and those teams would be Gambit and Fnatic.
The remaining two teams, SK Gaming and FaZe Clan, were paired together. The first game of the playoffs in the Fox Theatre pitted Natus Vincere and Astralis against each other.
Natus Vincere Na'Vi was unequivocally the strongest team in the group stage, defeating each team by at least ten rounds, including the considered world's number three team SK Gaming.
Na'Vi rifler flamie had the highest Average Damage per Round ADR out of any player. The flawless group stage surprised many as Na'Vi was struggling a lot coming into the tournament, including some early group stage exits in other tournaments since winning ESL One New York Meanwhile, Astralis, who was considered to be the world's number one team coming into the major, struggled in the group stage, especially after GODSENT upset Astralis in the first round.
Astralis bounced back to win games against OpTic Gaming and G2 Esports, but then fell to SK Gaming in the fourth round, putting the team on the brink of elimination.
However, Astralis easily defeated ESL One Cologne 's runners-up Team Liquid on Mirage in the last round to make the playoffs. The first map on Astralis's map choice, Overpass, was a complete blowout by the Danish team.
Astralis took a convincing halftime lead. While Na'Vi closed the gap to , Astralis took the last three rounds to take the first map. Na'Vi's star players GuardiaN and s1mple struggled throughout the map, with only 11 and 10 kills, respectively.
The second map on Mirage, Na'Vi's map choice, was a much closer game. Na'Vi took a strong lead going into the 11th round. However, Astralis came back and won the last five rounds of the half to bring the game to a respectable score line of Eventually, the game was tied Astralis took a lead late into the game and was two rounds away from making the semifinals, but Na'Vi tied the score back at 14 a piece heading into the last two rounds of regulation.
In a crucial moment in round 29, Astralis had a man advantage with 25 seconds left in the round. Kjaerbye was planting the bomb with 5 seconds left, the approximate time needed to plant the bomb, but s1mple came in with 3 seconds left and killed Kjaerbye before the bomb could be planted, resulting in the time running out and a round to Na'Vi.
In round 30, Na'Vi had a man advantage and Astralis player Xyp9x had to clutch the round with the bomb planted to send the game into overtime.
However, Na'Vi in game leader seized and Edward won the round before Xyp9x would kill either player, giving the round and map to Na'Vi. After struggling on Overpass, GuardiaN and s1mple delivered for their team, with 26 and 27 kills, respectively.
Both teams are considered to be very strong on Dust II, the final map of the series. Na'Vi took a slim lead into halftime.
While the first half was virtually even, the second half seemed to be all Astralis, as Na'Vi could only get two rounds in the second half.
Once again, dev1ce topped the scoreboard with 26 kills. Astralis's win on Dust II would mean it would face either Gambit Gaming or Fnatic.
Gambit Gaming made some major changes to its roster by acquiring Zeus from Na'Vi and being loaned HObbit from Tengri. Under Zeus's leadership, the Gambit roster unexpectedly made it out of the group stage, despite placing top eight at the previous major.
The team defeated a top five team in North and GODSENT, which had just beaten tournament favorites Astralis before falling to Virtus.
However, in the fourth round, Gambit defeated FaZe Clan behind a stellar performance from Dauren 'AdreN' Kystaubayev. Fnatic, formerly the world's number one team, holds the most major titles with three and is one of two teams to win two majors in a row along to SK Gaming.
Fnatic made some drastic changes with the departures of flusha and JW to GODSENT. In the group stage, the team suffered a loss to G2 Esports but then bounced back to win the next three games to move on to the playoffs, including the deciding game on Cobblestone against Team EnVyUs, The first map of the series on Cache seemed good for Gambit at the very beginning after winning the first round, the pistol round.
However, Fnatic bounced right back and would take a lead before Gambit would take a third round. The score would be a Fnatic lead at halftime, a respectable scoreline for Gambit.
Gambit once again won the pistol round but then against lost the following round. Fnatic never looked back and would go on to win the map Despite AdreN having 22 kills for Gambit, his team could not pull off a win as Fnatic's twist would equal AdreN in kills.
Zeus and Dosia struggled as both had under ten kills. On Gambit's map, Overpass, Zeus and company would answer right back. Gambit would lead the charge behind HObbit's 20 kills and took a halftime score.
Gambit would easily win the next four rounds to take a convincing win going into the third map. KRiMZ lead the way for Fnatic with 15 kills but all but one Gambit player had more kills than him by the end of the map.
The third map appeared to be Fnatic's map, as the players took an lead before Gambit would even get its first round on the board.
However, Gambit would bite back and bring the score at the half back to a respectable deficit, despite being on the more favored side of the map in the first half.
However, Gambit struggled immensely in the second half, despite mou 20 kills in the game. Gambit squeezed out one round while Fnatic ran over Zeus's squad and took a victory and ono to its way to a semifinals date against Astralis.
Once again, Dosia and Zeus had fewer than ten kills and all but mou on the Gambit roster had a positive kill to death differential.
The team also includes NEO, who is considered to be one of the greatest CS 1. North had just left Team Dignitas after mutually parting ways after the major qualifier and then were picked up by top Danish football soccer club F.
Copenhagen and Nordisk Films. In addition, Jesper "tenzki" Mikalski was released from the roster and then brought in Magisk.
With the exception of cajunb, who was with Astralis, the other four members were in their first playoffs. North looked to be in trouble in the group stage, as it had started out with losses against Gambit Gaming and Fnatic and needed one more loss to be eliminated or win three straight to make it to the playoffs.
The team under the leadership of MSL did the latter and defeated HellRaisers, G2 Esports, and GODSENT in overtime to qualify for the playoffs.
The first map on Overpass, despite being North's pick, was all Virtus. Behind the fragging power of pashaBiceps in the first few rounds and then Virtus.
At this point, cajunb had no kills in the fifteen rounds. RUBINO from Norway seemed to be the only player from North to get something going with 15 kills, but Snax's 27 kills, NEO's 18, and pashaBicep's 16 outnumber his total.
North, however, would answer back on Virtus. North would extend its lead to before Virtus. However, North would prevail and end Virtus.
The last map of January 27 would be Cobblestone between the two teams. It seemed like North would convincingly steal Virtus.
However, Virtus. Magisk was buffered to just eight kills in the second half and North only managed to pull out just one round in the second half, while Virtus.
SK Gaming was considered the world's best team of after winning the two majors of the year, MLG Columbus and ESL One Cologne , and could be the first team ever to win three major titles in a row.
However, the team made a roster change by benching Lincoln "fnx" Lau due to internal issues and bringing in former FaZe Clan player fox from Portugal as a temporary replacement.
SK Gaming have the world's number one and two players, according to HLTV. In the group stage, the Brazilian squad easily defeated the HellRaisers and edged out FaZe Clan in the second round before being diminished by Na'Vi in the third round.
In a very close game, SK Gaming squeaked past Astralis to make the playoffs. Meanwhile, FaZe Clan has seen a jump in performance after bringing in former Ninjas in Pyjamas Finnish player allu to replace fox as an AWPer and bringing former in game leader of Astralis karrigan as the team's new captain.
Since then, the team has seen some impressive results, including a third-place finish at ELEAGUE Season 2. FaZe defeated FlipSid3 Tactics before falling to SK Gaming after the team lost a lead.
The team defeated Team Liquid in overtime but then lost to Gambit Gaming in a very close two round loss. The team needed to defeated Team EnVyUs to qualify for the playoffs for the first time in the team's history and did just that with a victory.
All three maps heavily favored one side. On Mirage, took the pistol round and then a lead before SK brought it back to a score.
However, SK could only get another round before the half ended, giving FaZe a huge lead at the half. FaZe took the pistol round in the second half, which appeared to be the end, but SK won an economy round and eventually brought it to a deficit for the Brazilian team.
FaZe would still hold on to its lead and take a victory over the defending major champions. SK's fer led everyone with 20 kills, but coldzera, FalleN, and TACO struggled, while kioShiMa led the FaZe Clan with 19 kills, followed closely by aizy with 18 kills.
Train, however, was the next map and SK is widely considered to be the best team on the said map.
SK would take a lead before FaZe would get a round, despite FaZe starting on the more favored side. Each team would trade three rounds each before SK took a score at the half.
SK would never look back after that and would go on to win the map While allu lead his team with 14 kills, the two stars of Mirage had under ten kills, while fer had 22 kills and TACO had 19 kills.
The last map was Overpass, a map both teams are considered to be very strong on. SK would start off with a booming lead, but FaZe would answer back by going on a run, bringing the score to SK would however win the last three rounds of the half, but this would still give FaZe a deficit, a respectable score as it started on the less favored side.
However, SK would never give FaZe a round in the second half and went on a run, winning the map in an emphatic fashion.
Although TACO and fox were the worst on their team, they matched the top members of FaZe with 13 kills kioShiMa and karrigan. Star player rain for FaZe failed to show up, only getting 5 kills while dying 20 times.
SK moved on to face Virtus. In the past, Fnatic dominated the Astralis lineup, despite Astralis seemingly was the only team to go head to head with the Swedish team.
After powering through Na'Vi, Astralis faced off against Fnatic, which easily took care of Gambit in its two wins. Cache, one of Fnatic's best maps, started off with Fnatic winning the pistol round, but Astralis answered right back on its economy round.

In the 30th round, olofmeister was in a 1 vs 2 situation against dev1ce and gla1ve. In overtime, Astralis won all three rounds on its half, taking an lead into the half.
Fnatic brought one back and was in a 2 vs 1 situation when Kjaerbye won the clutch, giving Astralis the victory.
Nuke was a map neither team had much experience on, but since Fnatic banned Overpass, Astralis took a risk. Astralis took a dominating lead into the second half while playing on the less favored side.
Astralis then took the first two rounds of the second half but then Fnatic took the next two rounds to make it However, Astralis would close it out with the last two rounds, reaching its first ever grand finals in the majors.
The team was led by the 22 kills of dev1ce and 20 kills of Kjaerbye, while KRiMZ of Fnatic showed up once again for the team, while olofmeister got 15 kills.
Astralis would either face SK Gaming, who it lost to in the group stage, or Virtus. The two-time defending champions in SK Gaming will face off against Virtus.
However, the last time these two teams played — in ESL One New York in New York and EPICENTER in Moscow — Virtus. SK struggled getting into bombsites but still came to an honest deficit.
