Can't get over the hump in quarterfinal loss to C9
August 28, 2016
NRG eSports were taken down by Cloud9 in a 2-0 series in the quarterfinals of CyberPowerPC Summer 2016.
ANALYSIS
NRG just couldn't do much to stymie the strong performance that C9 put on them in this game. The CT-side seemed to be their kryptonite in this series, as they went a combined 9-21 in the series when working from that side. This left them in big holes they weren't able to overcome in both Games 1 and 2 of this series. It didn't help that they were almost playing a 4-vs-5 for most of the series, as gob b just seemed to be along for the ride. He posted a terrible 21/33 KD overall, which included an abysmal 6/15 performance on Overpass in Game 1. This certainly wasn't the best showing from European team, and they will certainly look to make some adjustments before their next action against eUnited in the ESL Pro League on Monday.
