Fnatic emerged as champions in the recent regional qualifier after overcoming Mousesports in a five-map grand final battle. The journey wasn’t easy for Fnatic. To get into the finals, the champions had to face Astralis, one of the high-ranking CS:GO teams today.
The battle started on Overpass, Fnatic’s map pick. They clearly had an advantage, but Mousesports put up a fight. Fnatic led a 9-6 advantage, courtesy of Robin “flusha” Rönnquist. A 1v3 situation where Mousesports’ Özgür “woxic” Eker and David “frozen” Čerňanský excelled nearly crushed the team, but Fnatic managed to close the map in 16-11.
On Dust 2, Mousesports made a comeback on the T side. Fnatic’s defenses fell apart in the second half of the game, allowing the opposing team to secure three kills in the pistol round. Mousesports claimed the map with a 16-7 score.
The third map, Vertigo, saw Ludvig “Brollan” Brolin and Freddy “KRIMZ” Johansson teaming up to gain an advantage in the T side. However, they made the same mistake in the second map, giving Mousesports an opening to claim two crucial clutches and close the map in 16-11.
Fnatic finally found their momentum on Nuke after 2 consecutive losses. The team hosted an impressive 4v4 retake on A and held on to their momentum until the end. A pistol round win moved the game to the final map with a tie.
The last map, Mirage, determined the European champion of the tournament. Fnatic’s strong defenses earned them a 5-2 lead in the beginning. The team switched to offense in the second half of the game and attacked Mousesports. With an economic advantage on their side, Fnatic closed out the map with a 16-12 tally and claimed victory.
