Consistent despite 2-0 OT loss
October 18, 2017
KRiMZ tallied a 64/51 on Tuesday with a grueling 2-0 loss to North in ESL Pro League Season 6.
ANALYSIS
KRiMZ would surge through the first half to pick up a perfect 3-0 start on the offense, which would later turn into a 6-1 lead. Although North would come back and win five straight to even the game at 6-6, KRiMZ would fire away in the following round to take the lead back 7-6 with a few entry kills. However, North would overcome and shut down the offense to close out the first half 8-7. KRiMZ got to a quick start in the second, getting the A-bombsite hold and frags to follow to win four straight. Still picking up frags, North won a few rounds and eventually came back from a 14-9 deficit to settle a 14-14 tie. KRiMZ would then pick up map-point advantage as North would force the extra rounds. Unfortunately for KRiMZ, his efforts in the overtime rounds didn't bring in much effect as he would fall 19-17, posting a 30/26 KD and an 87.6 ADR. Game 2, KRiMZ would continue to pick up frags despite the 8-0 start that would eventually turn around for a 10-5 deficit at the half. KRiMZ would get the entry kills in the early rounds of the second half to climb back and tie the game late 14-14. North would then force map point for KRiMZ, although he would fire back to force the extra rounds. However, this time around KRiMZ came up short with only one round won in overtime for a 19-16 Cobblestone loss, posting a team-leading 34/25 KD and 105.9 ADR.
Unable to bounce back
October 3, 2017

ANALYSIS
With a 5-0 deficit to start, KRiMZ began to pick up rounds for the offense getting the entry-kills and post-plant holds to rejuvenate the economy. KRiMZ contributed to the five-round comeback to tie the game 5-5 and continued to pressure the defense for a 9-6 lead going into the second. A solid start on defense suddenly didn't last long as KRiMZ couldn't outplay the Ninjas, who came back to tie the game 12-12. After NiP took off with the lead and reached map point, KRiMZ played very passively in the three rounds won to force overtime. However, Fnatic struggled to win in the extra rounds with only two rounds won in the overtime loss 19-17. In Game 2, KRiMZ couldn't hold it together with a dismal first half on defense which transpired into the second half to result in a 16-4 loss on Cache.

Not enough to bring home the victory for Fnatic
August 30, 2017
KRiMZ put up a 21/19 KD in Fnatic's close loss to Immortals on Day 1 of DreamHack Malmo.
ANALYSIS
KRiMZ tried his best to get his team a win in this series, but Fnatic simply waited too long to find their groove. The opened up the map in a massive 6-1 hold before closing the half down 10-5. KRiMZ did his part in that half with some consistent kills but just didn't find many from his teammates. Once the second half hit, he was even better as all of Fnatic finally came alive. But Immortals stabilized in the final few rounds and locked up the 16-14 win to send Fnatic to the losers' bracket.
Multi-kills abound in series victory
August 22, 2017
KRiMZ put together a strong 46/27 KD in his team's 2-0 win over BIG in the ESL Pro League on Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
While Fnatic as a whole looked very strong in this series to open their Pro League campaign, KRiMZ was simply playing on a different plane of existence at times. He seemed to put up a multi-kill in just about every round he found a kill, which was a huge boon to Fnatic in this big (pun intended) showing from Fnatic. He may have waited a few rounds in the second game to find a kill, he exploded onto the scoreboard with a 4k in that round. He continued this strong play all throughout the game to pick up the sweep. With Golden at the helm, Fnatic looks like a rejuvenated squad that will surely do damage here in the Pro League.
Best on team in final rounds of loss
July 4, 2017
KRiMZ ended Fnatic's tough loss to mousesports on Tuesday at ESL Cologne with a KD of 20/19.
ANALYSIS
KRiMZ had a bit of a hot-and-cold game to open up Fnatic's campaign at ESL Cologne. He started off extremely slow with just one kill in the first four rounds. This was despite his team opening up with a strong 4-0 start at that point. He started to pick it up a bit, but while mouz were inching back in during the first half, he wasn't bringing enough to the table. Despite his slow start to the first half, he was leading his team in the second half of the game. In the final seven rounds (all of which were Fnatic losses), he was the only member with a positive KD. With the rest of his team falling short in the rounds, Fnatic dropped the map 16-11.
