ESL One Cologne 2017: Semifinals


The semifinal encounter of ESL One Cologne 2017 will see us clash against the NA powerhouse United States Cloud9. The game is set to kick off at 16:00 CEST on July 8 and will be played in bo3.


Since the loss against us in the second group stage round, Cloud9 have been teetering on the edge of elimination as each of the games could have possibly become their last in the competition. Nonetheless, they have made their way out of a difficult position by taking three straight victories against Tyloo (16:9 — de_cbble), Immortals (16:11 —de_train), and mousesports (22:20 — de_inferno) and thereby entering the playoff stage with a 0:2 score. Their victorious run then progressed into the quarterfinals as the team prevailed over NiP 2:1 to advance into the semis.
Moving on to our usual pre-game analysis, it can be confidently said that we won’t see neither de_cache nor de_nuke in our today’s map pool. Following the ban stage, each team will have to pick one map, where CIS Na`Vi will most probably opt for de_overpass, and Cloud9 for de_cbble. Next, we think that each of the remaining three maps – de_inferno, de_mirage and de_train – can be possibly picked for a decider, though de_train seems like the most realistic option, as both teams feel comfortable on it and view it as one best in their map pool. All in all, we hope that today’s match will be as successful for our team as yesterday’s encounter against G2 and will be a stepping stone for us on the way towards the grand final of ESL One Cologne 2017. #gonavi
