Swept for a loss to FaZe
December 9, 2017
flusha went 37/39 on Saturday in a 2-0 loss to FaZe Clan in the semifinals of ESL Pro League Season 6 Finals.
ANALYSIS
flusha got the early lead in both halves of the best-of-three semifinal as his aggressive offense helped pick up the pistol round on Mirage. From there, his offense opened up the map to allow for a 4-1 lead. However, FaZe contested and even the score at 4-4 and once again at 6-6, which eventually handed flusha the three-round deficit. With no defense in the second half, flusha struggled to find the pixel perfect headshot to help his team in the 16-7 loss. A firm start for the defense quickly went the other way as flusha couldn't win his trade kills or create the odd-man advantage. Eventually breaking through for an 8-7 score, flusha still could not find his groove in the second half for the offense as FaZe swept for a 16-10 win.
Bests OpTic in quarters
December 9, 2017
flusha gathered a 64/55 KD on Friday in a close 2-1 win over OpTic Gaming in the quarterfinals of ESL Pro League Season 6 Finals.
ANALYSIS
OpTic started Inferno with a 2-0 lead before flusha came rallying back on the offense to even things out. Both teams contested to trade rounds but flusha finally got the post-plant holds to take the offensive 9-6 lead at the half. The defense was stout in the beginning of the second half, but OpTic's offense was just too much to handle as flusha couldn't contend for the 16-14 loss. His strong defense in the first half of Train shined some light on the Fnatic team as his firm hold on the B-bombsite allowed for an 11-4 lead at the half. A slow start in the second half quickly turned flusha's way as he picked up mappoint advantage with a triple kill on the post-plant hold to win the 2-vs-1. flusha remained composed on Mirage, tying the game in Round 12 with a 1-vs-2 clutch on the A-bombsite post-plant hold. Although OpTic took the first half with three straight, flusha took advantage of the mid-control and outlasted the OpTic offense to hold off for a 16-14 win, advancing to the semifinals.
Clutched Astralis in win
December 9, 2017
flusha collected a 23/12 KD on Wednesday in a 16-7 win over Astralis in the ESL Pro League Season 6 Finals.
ANALYSIS
After a brief 2-0 deficit to start on the offensive side of Inferno, flusha contributed to the massive five-round lead thanks to his shut down on the banana push with a triple kill to secure the round. In Round 8, flusha came out on top in a 1-vs-2 clutch on the A-bombsite post-plant to extend the lead. Astralis managed to pick up a few rounds in the first half but flusha continued his offensive overhaul to take the first half 11-4. Going into the second, Astralis picked up the first three rounds before flusha came right back with five rounds against, including his Round 21 triple kill hold on the A-bombsite to secure the 14-7 lead. He then picked up another triple kill hold on the B-bombsite in the following round to earn mappoint, which would eventually lead to the 16-7 win, posting a 101.6 ADR.
Clean sweep in OT
December 9, 2017

FaZe Clan jumped out to a 2-0 lead early on the defensive side of Inferno, but flusha finally broke through the B-bombsite to pick up the first round of the half. From there, flusha continued to get the entry-kills needed to help his team win three more to take the 4-1 lead. However, FaZe contested and brought the game to a 4-4 tie as both teams then traded rounds until FaZe finally held the line for an 8-7 score. Both Teams once again traded rounds in the early stages of the second half but flusha remained perfect on the retakes and quick on the rotations to hold out to take map point.

Not enough firepower in OT
October 18, 2017
flusha posted a 41/49 KD on Tuesday in a 2-0 loss to North in ESL Pro League Season 6.
ANALYSIS
The series started on Mirage as flusha would open up to a 3-0 lead on the offense early on. After North finally made their mark, flusha would then continue to shut down the defense for a 6-1 lead. However, North rallied back to even the field 6-6, as flusha would get the entry needed to help win the following round but the Danes came out on top 8-7 at the half. Going into the second, flusha held down the line primarily on the A-bombsite to win four straight. The defense dominated the start of the second half, but North would come back from a 14-9 deficit to tie once more 14-14. Reaching map point, flusha failed to close out the map as North forced extra rounds. Giving up the first overtime round, flusha would even things out 16-16 with his defuse to deny the clutch from North. Despite only one more round being won, flusha would fall 19-17 on Mirage. A dismal start in Game 2 of Cobblestone showcased flusha unable to win any defensive rounds in the first eight rounds for an 8-0 deficit. However, a couple strongholds on the B-bombsite and fast rotations on the A-bombsite retake allowed the team to take a 10-5 deficit at the half. flusha rode on the first half momentum into the second half to pick up a few offensive rounds early, including his Round 18 anti-eco quad kill on the A-bombsite post-plant to secure the round. An aggressive offense from flusha would earn rounds to put North on their toes, although the Danes did come back and advance with map-point advantage. flusha would then force the extra rounds, but would flake in overtime for only one round won in the 19-16 Game 2 loss.
Top man on Fnatic in loss
October 10, 2017
flusha put up a 31/40 KD in Fnatic's 0-2 loss to Astralis in the quarterfinals of the ELEAGUE Premier 2017.
ANALYSIS
Simply put, Fnatic were completely outmatched in this series against Astralis on Tuesday. Ever since olofmeister left the team a couple months ago, the Europeans have been looking for any semblance of an identity. While they haven't been terrible by any means, they have just been missing a spark. That didn't change here against Astralis. flusha did his best to lead his team to victory with somewhat solid fragging, but it simply wasn't anywhere near enough. His ADR was the third-highest in the lobby, yet it didn't really matter much in this lopsided showing. They will have to go back to the drawing board in the coming weeks to help stabilize this team.
Rocked mouz in Game 1
September 27, 2017
flusha posted a solid 36/20 KD on Wednesday with a 2-0 win over mouz in ESL Pro League Season 6.
ANALYSIS
flusha started the series on Train and opened with an impressive triple-kill clutch on the B-bombsite retake to secure the pistol. He then stood strong on the B-bombsite in Round 4 with a quad-kill hold on the anti-eco to secure the round. His opening-round win surged the team to a dominating start. Up 7-0 on defense, flusha reclaimed the B-bombsite with a quad kill to extend the lead to 8-0. The first half was dominated in fashion by flusha's 134.8 ADR although mouz finally won one round to complete the half 14-1. After blowing mouz out in two rounds to take Train 16-1, flusha then moved into Cache where things heated up. Despite his thrashing performance in Game 1, flusha actually struggled for the most part in Game 2 unable to collect more frags. A team-low 13/15 KD and 66.4 ADR were able to help the team secure Game 2 with a blitzing first half on the offensive side to take the lead 12-3 going into the second. Mouz was able to gain some ground but flusha and team stood strong on defense to take Cache 16-10.
Steamrolls through the second half
September 1, 2017
flusha gathered a 14/23 KD for Fnatic in a 16-13 win over EnVyUs on Day 1 of DreamHack Masters Malmo.
ANALYSIS
flusha had a rather quiet first half for Fnatic on the defense, with only a few stray frags picked up on the B-bombsite holds and not much to show on the retakes either. However, he contributed to six rounds won in the first half to earn seven kills in the 9-6 deficit. flusha picked up entries for the most part in the second half with a 3-0 start and to even the score in Round 22 with a double entry into the B-bombsite. flusha began to steamroll the defense of nV with consistent entry frags and create the odd-man situation early to take Cobblestone 16-13.
Shows up big despite the loss
August 30, 2017
flusha racked up a 25/18 KD in Fnatic's tough 16-14 loss to Immortals on Day 1 of DreamHack Malmo.
ANALYSIS
flusha was one of the better members of Fnatic in this close loss on Wednesday. He started off pretty average, finding just a few kills in the early rounds, but never really getting off the ground in the first half. Once the second half kicked off, however, he found his footing during Fnatic's comeback attempt. He started to find steady frags through most of the early rounds of the half, and then hooked up with KRiMZ in Round 28 to secure four kills between the two of them on a beautiful crossfire. That proved to be the last round they'd win, however, as Immortals took the final two rounds to secure the 16-14 win.
Consistent play leads to sweep
August 22, 2017
flusha put up a 35/31 KD in Fnatic's sweep over BIG on Tuesday in the ESL Pro League.
ANALYSIS
flusha never really put himself at the forefront of this series, but what he did was play incredibly consistent to keep Fnatic marching right towards the finish line. By far his best round in the opening game of the series was his beautiful defuse fake in Round 14 to pick up the final two kills in the round. While that was probably his only memorable round across both games, he was still adding in kills here and there to help his team. They simply looked very strong and will certainly be a strong contender this season.
Falls of late in loss
July 4, 2017
flusha put together a 15/23 KD in Fnatic's loss to mouesports on Tuesday at ESL Cologne.
ANALYSIS
flusha, like most of Fnatic, started off extremely hot in this game. He was a big part of the team's fast start that saw them go up 6-0 from the get go. Even when flusha slowed down a bit in the first half, he was still putting up better numbers than all of mouz were. The problem for flusha was that he simply kept going down as the game progressed. He only managed to pick up two kills in the final seven rounds that mouz won to take this map 16-11. flusha will certainly needs to step it up in the second series to avoid the harrowed 0-2 start.
Shuts down late Cloud9 run
May 31, 2017
flusha put up a 16/13 KD in Fnatic's one-sided win against Cloud9 on Day 2 of the ESL Pro League Finals.
ANALYSIS
flusha took a few rounds to get on the board, but his double in Round 4 was a great start. While only having three kills after eight rounds, he didn't die very many times to keep Fnatic on a nice first half pace. He then picked up both the AWP and rifle in the later rounds of the second half to boost Fnatic to a 13-2 halftime lead. When Cloud9 went on a run in the second half, flusha showed right up to shut it down with a double in Round 21 and inch them closer to a win.
Late double AWP setup falls short
May 31, 2017
flusha ended Fnatic's loss to G2 on Day 2 of the ESL Pro League Finals with a KD of 15/18.
ANALYSIS
flusha started well enough with doubles in Rounds 3 and 4 of the first half, but then he couldn't find much else to contribute until picking up another one in Round 13. By that point, G2 were already rolling right along to the sizable 10-5 first-half advantage. He came out with a 3k in the second pistol round by using a nice angle on the B-site that G2 was unable to account for. He tried to double AWP with dennis late in the second half, but even that wasn't nearly enough to prevent the 16-11 loss.
Inconsistent frags lead to lopsided loss
May 30, 2017
flusha tallied a 9/16 KD in Fnatic's loss against SK Gaming on Day 1 of the ESL Pro League Finals.
ANALYSIS
flusha didn't get on the board until Round 6 of this game, but that wasn't entirely surprising once you realize that his team didn't get a kill to their name until Round 9 of the game. flusha was right there in that round with a double kill that gave his team the win. With a bit of economy under their belt now, flusha followed that up with another double kill in the following round. However, Fnatic failed to gain any real momentum from the wins and only one a single round more in the rest of this 16-3 loss.
