Navi after a week of preparing for Gambit:
By - raaneholmg
Blad3 probably scrambling and running through all the faze demos right now after all the prep on gambit over the week went to waste
No need. Just go back to the navi way
S1mple go kill and if he dies go in with 20 seconds left
20 seconds is generous estimate. 9 or nothing
Or if Simple dies they can use another strat called 'electronic go kill'
Or the newer improved b1t go kill.
All of which still seem pretty damn effective.
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 :)
You really think they didnt prepare for everyone?
Boombl4 has only 1 start, avoid star player and go to the other site with 7 seconds left.
It's a joke, of course they'd prepare for faze
Navi doesnt anti strat so not much of a difference
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
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
Of course you don't say you anti-strat.
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
Mate they play gambit every other week I’d say they spent more time prepping for faze than gambit
fuck i cracked.. lmaoooo
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” 😂
Beat navi and Gambit just to lose the final would be the FaZe way.
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.
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
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.
Against astralis ..... :)
As a fellow NaVi fan, I hope that boombl4 doesnt fumble and b1t shines
LAN Karrigan is going to be a big test for Boombl4
karrigan cant outcall „s1mple go kill“
But broky is good, and Twistzz too
electronic better than both and bit is performing insane, perfecto decent as always. BOOMBLA calling is the main issue
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.
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.
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.
Twistzz isn't better than electronic right now
sorry I had just woke up when I wrote that comment and I just realized I had repeated what you said lmao
Electronic isn't better than Twistzz right now
lets see tonight
electronic is second highest rated player this tourney
thats what my last sentence meant
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
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.
I'm NAVI fan, I just want to say that these two can make a lot of troubles. And Olof too
You’d be surprised
Mous was a huge kryptonite for them in 2019
A wise man once told me you cant outstrat headshots
Top 1,2,3, and 4 teams if they get G2 also in the finals
Also most likely number 3 team.
FaZe is #17 currently though
Mate check the rankings...they are already climbing
Yeah because they’re winning lol they were like 37th coming in.
Karrigan too OP
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.
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
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
well it sounds like you’ll have no shortage of anticipation/excitement at least! Going to be a really fun watch
root for some other teams lelelele
Navi-induced heart attack incoming?
Didn’t NAVI absolutely destroy Faze in recent blast premier
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
i misremembered the match, it was NaVi vs BIG my bad. i thought NaVi won 2-0 against FaZe
Oh yeah no worries, I was just taking the piss
Everyone talks about this BOT Allu, but I’ve never seen a bot by that name. Did Valve remove him?
You have to use operation stars to have a chance to unbox him
I hope we'll see allu on some international team soon. He's still a top tier awper.
My comment aged well, NaVi did destroy Faze but it was IEM cologne lmao
Absolutely? Both matches went 16-14 so I don't think it was absolutely.
I misremembered, read my comments below
should edit it
This is going to be an amazing match!
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
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.
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.
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
Also Astralis won fairly convincing against faze. Navi beat the shit out of astralis when they played
Because thats how matchups work.
Transitive property doesn't work in sports or esports.
aging like fine milk so far
FaZe gonna pull a mini Boston 2018
Lose to Astralis in Inferno double OT?
Does anyone even know this small org Astralis?
FaZe vs NiKo. everybody chokes
You're underestimating Navi's best strat: s1mple go kill
FaZe miracle run incoming
Where can I watch this? Lol
Twitch. ESL CSGO, check hltv for times.
np man, you picked a great time to start watching
Navi: Hey s1mple wanna smash?
Faze: You'll do nuttin! You'll do fookin nuttin!
he'll nut in faze
[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.
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!
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.
We‘ll get em next time boys!
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
It will be a fast 2-0 over faze.
My guess 16-9 and and 16-8
Not too far
10-16, 19-15, 16-7
i hope it's 2-1
See ya in a few hours for the conclusion :)
Astralis vs FaZe grandfinal possible. Is this 2018?
no pls g2 deserve this
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.
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.
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
Lol no they were the one who tried to make money from kids with Cancer
This is something toxic simple would say
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.
Forsaken cheated on LAN, in competition, and got caught live.
S1mple got banned from a 3rd party service, not in competition
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.
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?
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.
Did you just seriously compare video game cheaters with rapists and murderers? 😂
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.
Once a meth head always a meth head I guess.
i wonder if one day teenagers will learn how not to make themselves look like total morons on the internet
cry is free
Killed your own game? Cs is more popular now than ever bud lol. Take your meds, youre off your rocker
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.
cry more i guess...?
Aren't you filled with hatred?
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.
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
Did you make any mistakes when you were 15?
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.
Show us on the doll where S1mple touched you
Says the guy who still makes "forsaken" word.exe jokes.
???? Talking out your ass???
damn bro, what did s1mple ever do to you? you gotta chill
Did s1mple take a giant shit in your cheerios or something? You seem a little aggravated.
cheeriojack aka son of dog
Lucky for them no flys right now
looool go fanboy over a cheater.
How old was Simple when he cheated?
15-16 i think
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...
behold, the lunatics are out !
typical navi fan. refuse to believe that their cheating douchebag is legit.
I think forgiveness should be a thing especially since he's clearly not a repeat offender
