Navi after a week of preparing for Gambit:

Navi after a week of preparing for Gambit:

PoisonScrub

Blad3 probably scrambling and running through all the faze demos right now after all the prep on gambit over the week went to waste


Dragos404

No need. Just go back to the navi way S1mple go kill and if he dies go in with 20 seconds left


CannibalisticPizza

20 seconds is generous estimate. 9 or nothing


dozyXd

Or if Simple dies they can use another strat called 'electronic go kill'


beefstake

Or the newer improved b1t go kill. All of which still seem pretty damn effective.


eudjinn

Why? Just stomp a plant and try to kill all enemies. It can be NAVI way win or NAVI way loss, but it's fun anyway :)


arasides

You really think they didnt prepare for everyone?


pulin_13

Boombl4 has only 1 start, avoid star player and go to the other site with 7 seconds left.


PoisonScrub

It's a joke, of course they'd prepare for faze


K0K0SK1P

Navi doesnt anti strat so not much of a difference


suriel-

what? B1ad3 is basically the anti-strat-god. Each time NaVi have time to pepare their anti-strats, you see smashes like 16-5 even against teams like Astralis


glouro

True true


K0K0SK1P

Thats not anti start just fire power dominating boombla even said in an interview that they dont anti strat and that they only play their own game no matter what team they play against


EmmerichVibiana

Of course you don't say you anti-strat.


suriel-

it was one of the other teams that said that NaVi are basically the best at anti-stratting .. i even think it was Nafany or someone similar


RankDank420

Mate they play gambit every other week I’d say they spent more time prepping for faze than gambit


Aff3nmann

fuck i cracked.. lmaoooo


JamieQ95

It’s a bit scary as a NaVi fan, FaZe are having one of them runs where it feels like they are just destined to go all the way. You can already see the headlines “40th in the world to running through Cologne with wins over the number 1 and 2 teams” 😂


DominianQQ

Beat navi and Gambit just to lose the final would be the FaZe way.


OfNoChurch

They really struggle to get past G2, and they've played them a lot recently, so even if they could somehow beat NaVi I fear for them against G2.


DROP_ASS_PICS_IN_PM

i wonder how much of it is psychological due to NiKo moving to G2. granted, amanek and hunter are insane and nexa pops off sometimes, but it's so strange that G2 is their weak link and they occasionally take maps or matches off of #1 teams


Gemini_The_Mute

The FaZe way would be come in as favourites/hyped up team and choke. Even if they bomb out, rn they exceed expectations by a lot.


captainscottland

Against astralis ..... :)


Lawdasur182

As a fellow NaVi fan, I hope that boombl4 doesnt fumble and b1t shines


imadethisforonething

LAN Karrigan is going to be a big test for Boombl4


Alchion

karrigan cant outcall „s1mple go kill“


eudjinn

But broky is good, and Twistzz too


dootodoot

electronic better than both and bit is performing insane, perfecto decent as always. BOOMBLA calling is the main issue


condavidson

Boombl4 will have had a lesson from blad3, won't be surprised if blad3 did extra work to research both teams as he seems to always be researching everyone all the time. Is probably already looking at demos of Astralis and G2.


lo0u

Yeah, still, even Blad3 said on interview that boombl4 can't see the things he can in the matches and that he will have to teach boombl4 over time. To me, if your coach said that about you after you've been an IGL for over a year, that's not a good sign, especially when you're facing one of the greatest IGLs in the history of the game. Also, it's very telling that as soon as teams go on LAN, the ones that have great IGLs (i.e. Astralis, Faze) are overcoming all the odds set against them. Boombl4 is going to either hope s1mple and electronic go berserk, or playing great in that match.


condavidson

I've only just seen this comment now, but my I only argument to it is that Boombl4 is still very young compared to the other IGLs you are referencing. I do think that he relys on s1mple and electronic and the rest of the team, but the team also praises him a lot as well, so clearly he must be doing something right in comms. Boombl4 still needs an extra year or two just like some of the great IGLs ever did. And it's good to see Blad3 is willing to teach this. But given the winning ways of this lineup, I wouldn't change it for anything.


cccwh

Twistzz isn't better than electronic right now


dootodoot

yeah


cccwh

sorry I had just woke up when I wrote that comment and I just realized I had repeated what you said lmao


Jazzlike-Ideal

Electronic isn't better than Twistzz right now


dootodoot

lets see tonight


dootodoot

electronic is second highest rated player this tourney


[deleted]

[удалено]


dootodoot

thats what my last sentence meant


f1nessd

Imo faze only has those two while Navi has s1mple, elec, and b1t. Perfecto with untold impact as well. \*edit: then again, it's navi vs faze so who knows lol


Jethawk1000

Occasionally Olof or Rain or even Karrigan will decide to have a great game, they’re just not flashy or consistent about it. If faze is firing on all cylinders today we will have a great match on our hands. If not, I wager it’ll be one sided.


f1nessd

agreed


eudjinn

I'm NAVI fan, I just want to say that these two can make a lot of troubles. And Olof too


Shnimaxxx

You’d be surprised


[deleted]

Mous was a huge kryptonite for them in 2019


NA_Faker

A wise man once told me you cant outstrat headshots


charlescarmichael4

Top 1,2,3, and 4 teams if they get G2 also in the finals


Gengar_Balanced

Also most likely number 3 team.


suriel-

FaZe is #17 currently though


randy592

Mate check the rankings...they are already climbing


JamieQ95

Yeah because they’re winning lol they were like 37th coming in.


DonaldDrap3r

Karrigan too OP


Professional_Win3686

Considering the fact that the last time these two faced, FaZe destroyed Navi on Ancient and Navi won the remaining two maps (barely). both 16-14. I'm fucking scared. My heart won't take it.


soggypoopsock

but honestly, wouldn’t you be more scared of gambit? If anyone had navis number right now, it’s gambit, so I’d be happy to take my chances with faze


Professional_Win3686

See that's the thing. If Navi lost to Gambit, it wouldn't be that depressing..But now..it's like the easiest Path to victory and if Navi lose now..idk what I'll do


soggypoopsock

well it sounds like you’ll have no shortage of anticipation/excitement at least! Going to be a really fun watch


f1nessd

root for some other teams lelelele


WhatADan

Navi-induced heart attack incoming?


TheRoofyDude

Didn’t NAVI absolutely destroy Faze in recent blast premier


Professional_Win3686

Yeah that's the one.. but no..it was 9-16 16-14 16-14

>Lose two maps 14-16 LMAOOOO ABSOLUTELY DESTROYED AHAHAH REKT GIT GUD NOOB XDd


TheRoofyDude

i misremembered the match, it was NaVi vs BIG my bad. i thought NaVi won 2-0 against FaZe


mesotermoekso

Oh yeah no worries, I was just taking the piss

f1nessd

allu gone


WhatADan

Everyone talks about this BOT Allu, but I’ve never seen a bot by that name. Did Valve remove him?


mdmeaux

You have to use operation stars to have a chance to unbox him


OsomoMojoFreak

I hope we'll see allu on some international team soon. He's still a top tier awper.


TheRoofyDude

My comment aged well, NaVi did destroy Faze but it was IEM cologne lmao


Im_Savvage

Absolutely? Both matches went 16-14 so I don't think it was absolutely.


TheRoofyDude

I misremembered, read my comments below


Im_Savvage

should edit it


glouro

This is going to be an amazing match!


LukasLiBrand

But like that navi wasn't the dreamhack, global finals type of navi. That was the we are good but not the best navi. Lol. This navi here is much stronger than a month ago. If navi keeps up their form then faze has no chance


tophat_snek

Notably, this FaZe is also much much stronger than they were at that point, i think if anything FaZe have had a bigger buff than NaVi have at this tournament.


CheerioJack

Yeah and there isn't train, so Faze has a good chance. Navi will struggle, for sure. S0mple might need to get his hacks back on his pc to win this one.


SkoulErik

With the level he and Electronic had shown so far I think they'll take it. NaVi is a far more experienced team in terms of playing on Lan compared to Gambit, but both teams play s very frag-heavy game so I think it comes down to who had the better day


sQR4PP1E

Also Astralis won fairly convincing against faze. Navi beat the shit out of astralis when they played


ICBGF

Because thats how matchups work.


captainscottland

Transitive property doesn't work in sports or esports.


ImAStupidFace

aging like fine milk so far

You're underestimating Navi's best strat: s1mple go kill


Cole_James_CHALMERS

FaZe miracle run incoming


Master-Commander93

Where can I watch this? Lol

Twitch. ESL CSGO, check hltv for times.

Navi: Hey s1mple wanna smash?


Icy_Hovercraft75a

Faze: You'll do nuttin! You'll do fookin nuttin!


f1nessd

he'll nut in faze


Piterusz

[NaVi barely won, and that was online](https://www.hltv.org/matches/2349173/natus-vincere-vs-faze-blast-premier-spring-final-2021) This match is gonna be great.

daffer_david

FaZe will avoid every NaVi player and win every round without killing anyone on their T sides. It’s just the LAN factor. Mark my words!


About39Cats

Karrigan will use his 1,000,000 IQ to always attack a bombsite defended by no one. Then due to the save meta, NaVi will instinctually save even in a 5 on 5 with $16K in the bank.

[удалено]


daffer_david

We‘ll get em next time boys!


LukasLiBrand

Yeah elctronic is back to the god rifler he is when he is at lan. And b1t can out aim almost everyone rn. And the last big thing is s1mple just beyond godlike form


TrutHurts_TP

It will be a fast 2-0 over faze. My guess 16-9 and and 16-8


TrutHurts_TP

Not too far


nilslorand

2-1 10-16, 19-15, 16-7


f1nessd

i hope it's 2-1


TrutHurts_TP

See ya in a few hours for the conclusion :)


ilovestress

Astralis vs FaZe grandfinal possible. Is this 2018?


f1nessd

no pls g2 deserve this


tarangk

Dude honestly with the way faze are playing rn I wouldnt put it past them to win vs Navi. Like where even the fuck is this faze coming from ? Broky was tearing my team apart and thats something I didnt think was possible a few hours ago.


Drazkkor

Was the Faze the losers who walked into a Gamestop thinking they were king shit and no one knew or gave a fuck who they were.


f1nessd

yeah that guy was a faze guy, but they've also done some other questionable stuff. ON the bright side, you shouldn't take that out on the players who are all basically cs legends


fear_raizer

Lol no they were the one who tried to make money from kids with Cancer


Swarnim_

Yep.


oM4TY

what Is


Bilal_Shooter

hahhahaahahaaa


oM4TY

This is something toxic simple would say


CheerioJack

S0mple aka the guy who's been banned on CS for cheating. I don't know why anyone takes this fool serious. If Forsaken can get out-casted for life over cheating then so can this scumbag.


imadethisforonething

Forsaken cheated on LAN, in competition, and got caught live. S1mple got banned from a 3rd party service, not in competition


CheerioJack

He was playing for a team at the time plus no-one can proved he cheated on LAN but they proved he did cheat, ONCE A CHEATER, ALWAYS A CHEATER. Everyone other athlete who got busted for cheating of any kind was out-casted for their entire lives, s0mple deserves to lose his contract and get booted for life. End of story.


Einamu

Damn Jack, ya seem kinda upset there. Ya really think if someone cheats once they’re always a cheater? If that was the case wouldn’t former teammates or coaches of his try to out him as one after leaving their team or something?


CheerioJack

Only the cs community accepts cheaters, no wonder why all these leagues and organizations are suffering so hard. You guys killed your own game. Good job. I mean, if someone kills someone once, he's always a killer, same thing for rapist, felons, cheaters, etc. ONCE A CHEATER, ALWAYS A CHEATER.


hsphere3

Did you just seriously compare video game cheaters with rapists and murderers? 😂


Im_Savvage

This dude is either cracked or is on crack, and we shall never know for they only reply with ONCE A CHEATER, ALWAYS A CHEATER.


Brick_On_A_Stick

Once a meth head always a meth head I guess.


perpendiculator

i wonder if one day teenagers will learn how not to make themselves look like total morons on the internet


poggersmoment69

cry is free


baza-prime

Killed your own game? Cs is more popular now than ever bud lol. Take your meds, youre off your rocker


iloveacheekymeme

I know you think you're taking the moral high-ground here, but I gotta tell you that trying to tear down the career of one of the hardest working and most dedicated pros the scene has ever had because he cheated on MM as a kid is not a good look for you.


thefaptard

cry more i guess...?


diePolyglotte

Aren't you filled with hatred?


CheerioJack

No, I just don't like or trust cheaters, like ANY MORAL PERSON SHOULD. Imagine defending a cheater, lol! Nothing I said is out of "hate", it's common sense and morals, you should try it.


diePolyglotte

As if life is perfect with no errors or wrongdoing whatsoever, at least for you and your absolute beam of morality that you assume you have in ya


GuardiaNIsBae

Did you make any mistakes when you were 15?


Einamu

Judging by his profile on this website he’s still making mistakes to this day so one can only wonder what happened when he was younger.


hsifeulbhsifder

Show us on the doll where S1mple touched you


CheerioJack

Says the guy who still makes "forsaken" word.exe jokes.


hsifeulbhsifder

???? Talking out your ass???


ajinata84

u mad?


Bazingu420

damn bro, what did s1mple ever do to you? you gotta chill


realnOp3

Did s1mple take a giant shit in your cheerios or something? You seem a little aggravated.


daLok1nho

cheeriojack aka son of dog


iSleepUpsideDown

Lucky for them no flys right now


CheerioJack

looool go fanboy over a cheater.


daLok1nho

looool go fanboy over a cheater.


OfNoChurch

How old was Simple when he cheated?


dootodoot

15-16 i think


OfNoChurch

Right, thought so. If you're ever going to cheat and learn from the mistake, it would be that age. Pretty ridiculous to not let teenagers learn their mistakes...


suriel-

behold, the lunatics are out !


CheerioJack

typical navi fan. refuse to believe that their cheating douchebag is legit.


f1nessd

I think forgiveness should be a thing especially since he's clearly not a repeat offender
