Dreamhack Marseille — Semi-Finals Set

1
The Quarter-Finals day of Dreamhack Masters Marseille has come to a close and as such we have dropped from eight teams to four.
The first series of the day saw Natus Vincere send home Mousesports in somewhat of an upset. The first map opened up with a huge first half lead on Mirage for Natus Vincere 12-3 on their CT side. Mousesports started to build back into the map in the second half but it wasn't enough as it ended 16-9. The second map of Inferno was much closer as the teams traded 8-7 CT halves before Natus Vincere took it 19-16 in overtime. Shocking absolutely nobody however is the fact that Oleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev was far and away the best player on the server ending +32 over two maps with an ADR of 114.5.


Another map that required overtime was the first of Mirage as Cloud9 took on Gambit Esports. Gambit opened up with an 11-4 half on their CT side before Cloud9 flipped it back on them. Eventually it was Gambit who came out on top in overtime 7-3 to win 22-18. The same first half happened on Train however this time there was no comeback for the North Americans as they fell 16-7.


Third was a clash of two teams who should be titans but have lost some of their spark as of late as Astralis took on Faze Clan. The first map of Mirage is a fairly standard pick in most pro games, with it going the way of Astralis 16-11, however the second map of Nuke is far less common. Perhaps it was a reflection of Faze being uncomfortable on the map that lead to their second half, the favoured CT side, going so horribly as a 6-1 loss, giving Astralis a 16-6 and 2-0 victory. It is worth noting that over the two maps, all Astralis players were positive, all Faze players were negative and not a single Faze player had a rating of 1.00 or above.


Finally we had the Swedish derby as Ninjas in Pyjamas battled Fnatic. Similar story to other Mirage games of the day as Ninjas in Pyjamas fell to an early 3-12 deficit that they could not come back from, losing the first map 9-16. The match then moved on to Ninjas in Pyjamas' pick, but a Fnatic favourite, Inferno. Ninjas in Pyjamas showed they were more than correct to pick it as they stormed to a 16-5 victory with young Fredrik "REZ" Sterner leading the way.

The final map could have easily have gone to the Ninjas as they took a 10-5 first half lead on Train followed by the pistol round in the second half. Fnatic were having none of it however as they mounted an 3-11 second half comeback to take the series 2-1. Again a mention has to go to Mr consistent Freddy "KRiMZ" Johansson once again the MVP for Fnatic.
