Fnatic third Swedish team to compete in ECS Season 3. Olofmeister and c:o defeated world top 5 team North to qualify to ECS S3.
The best of 5 series started off with Overpass and a hungry Olofmeister. Thanks to the good form of Olofm fnatic could easily win the first map. His great form continued to the next map, but his one-man show wasn’t enough this time. As the Danish squad forced Cache to an overtime and finally managed to take the win.
Over to Cbble, North struggled as CT and saw fnatic benefit from the Dane’s sometimes silly mistakes. North ended up losing the map 11-16.
The series moved on to Inferno; a map that fnatic historically has dominated in the past. Both teams had strong performances as CT. North had map point for a short while, but fnatic managed to pull off an incredible force-buy and took the map to overtime. Once in overtime, the Swedish team took two important rounds as T and could seal the deal by winning a round on the CT side.
Fnatic, and especially the former best player in the world, Olofmeister, is starting to get in great shape. Beating North in a bo5 series is most definitely a sign of strength. The upcoming European division of ECS will be really interesting to follow.

ECS S3 EU Promotion #2 – Odds & Prediction
Virtus.pro vs Space Soldiers – March 27th 18:00
The Polish squad is heavily favored in this game. They’re better than Space Soldiers on every single level. However, if you’re sensing an upset potential, you could walk away with a lot of money. A bet on Space Soldiers at Bet365 gives you seven times the money.
Is it Space Soldiers time to shine? We’ve all seen how great XANTRARES can play if he’s in the mood. I’m definitely not counting out the Turkish team. They recently defeated GODSENT and showed that they can keep up with the top teams.
It will be an even fight, Virtus.pro are clearly the favorites. But, they can be a bit sloppy in online matches. We’ll see if that’s the case tonight as well and if Space Soldiers manage to take advantage of any potential mistakes.
