October 20, 2017

Renegades would pick up a couple of rounds, but nahtE would make sure to take Round 6 to keep a two-round lead. However, the offense ran out of momentum as Renegades would close out the first half on a massive defensive push to win nine straight and close the first half with an 11-4 score. nahtE had a slow start to the second half as Renegades contested early, getting the B-bombsite control to pick up a few rounds early. However, nahtE put up a strong performance on the defense in the second half to pick up 10 rounds over Renegades. Unfortunately, Renegades would pull away and eventually edged out Cobblestone with a 16-14 win. nahtE would put up a team-leading 92.7 ADR in the loss.
Comes close to edging out Renegades
October 20, 2017
FNS gathered a 22/21 KD on Friday, Day 1 of DreamHack Open Denver wit ha 16-14 loss to Renegades.
ANALYSIS
FNS started the series on Cobblestone with a quick 3-0 lead for the offense early on; however, Renegades came knocking. The series was contested early on as both teams would trade rounds, but Renegades took off and never looked back. FNS couldn't get the frags needed to close out the rounds in the first half, which then would fall to a large 11-4 deficit going into the second. The second half was a slow start with rounds going both ways, but FNS managed to pick up the pace and hold off for a massive defensive showing in the second half to win 10 rounds on Renegades and come within contention of the lead. However, Renegades would deny that gesture and continue to edge out the series with a 16-14 win, with FNS posting an 83.9 ADR.
Strong second half not enough
October 20, 2017
koosta posted an even 23/23 KD on Day 1 of DreamHack Open Denver with a 16-14 loss to Renegades.
ANALYSIS
koosta started the series with a triple-kill clutch in the pistol round to secure the 1-0 lead. From there, he would win two more rounds before Renegades would contest the lead early in the half. Unfortunately, koosta couldn't stop Renegades from holding down the line in the first half to win the remaining rounds and take the 11-4 lead. Although koosta picked up a few rounds in the start of the second half, Renegades would trail with a few of their own. With the AWP finally in the hands of koosta, 10 defensive rounds would push Renegades over the edge, but not quick enough as the Aussie-based team would strike back to close out the game with a 16-14 win.
From the top to the bottom
October 8, 2017
koosta tallied a 44/41 KD in CLG's 2-0 sweep of Ghost Gaming on Friday in the ESL Pro League.
ANALYSIS
While koosta started off well in this series, he fell massively as it progressed. He put on a show in the first game, dropping a 30-bomb in his team's big win. They may have needed a couple overtimes to take out Ghost, but they still got there in the end. But for as strong as koosta may have been in that game, he wasn't as great in the second frame. Sure, he still finished with a positive KD, but he was at the bottom of his team. It was still a strong win, nonetheless, however.
