SK Gaming beat Cloud9 3-0 — defends the ESL One Cologne title

1
As ESL One Cologne 2017 comes to an end, the defending champions have done it once again. SK Gaming has returned for the second time and conquered Cologne. This time, the final battle was nothing like the previous.

SK Gaming starting out strong

On the first map of the grand final, SK Gaming had an anticipated half on the terrorist side as they racked up ten rounds before the halftime break. On an upwards slope, Cloud9 found themselves winning the second pistol round as they set off to turn the game around. An impressive ace from Jake 'Stewie2K' Yip forced the Brazilians to take a timeout at 11-9. The timeout was later shown to be decisive.
After the initial timeout, SK Gaming managed to collect themselves and overcome the pressure from the North American side as they closed out the game at 16-9.


Cloud9 falls again, despite doing their homework

With Cloud9 picking Train as their first map, there was no doubt that the American contestant had done some homework. By winning the first pistol round, Cloud9 set towards a somewhat easy run as they closed out the first half at 10-5.
The pressure didn't arise until the second pistol round. The second ace of the game came as Fernando "Fer" Alvarenga demolished the Cloud9 side as they set on for a similar run as on Cobblestone. SK Gaming managed then to claim ten consecutive rounds and mark a 15-10 scoreline before the last interruption from Cloud9. After summoning two timeouts in a row, SK Gaming clinched the final round as they played an aggressive, yet traditional, round, ending the second map at 16-10.

Third time's a charm?

On Inferno, it almost looked like the American side was getting comfortable with losing pistol rounds. As Cloud9 marked their second pistol round loss in a row, they gained momentum as the Brazilian side got demolished early on. The Americans claimed a total of nine rounds in a row as the defenders, before closing the half out, once again, 10-5. As anticipated, Cloud9 lost another pistol round as SK Gaming started to crawl back into the game. It wasn't until the scoreline of 11-11 that Cloud9 went for the last run of the series. Unfortunately, the third time came with no success and, like the previous maps, the Americans fell right on the verge of a comeback. Impressive plays by the Brazilians gave them another runway to cling on to the championship title for the second time in a row, ending the game at 16-14 after a dramatic turn of events during the late stages of the map.

Following a catastrophic debut at DreamHack Masters Malmo, where FaZe fell short against NiP and Gambit en route to a group stage elimination, NiKo’s team delivered a masterpiece of a performance at ESL One New York. In perhaps the most dominant tier-one tournament victory of all-time in Counter-Strike, FaZe finished the event with 7-0 map record, allowing only a Liquid comeback from a 4-11 deficit to win over seven rounds against them, and averaging a ridiculous 16-6 score in their championship run. Could FaZe already be the best team around?
