On Thursday night, April 25, 2019, the all Brazilian CSGO team FURIA swept the North American team Spacestation in one of the first rounds of the ECS Season 7 North American tournament. This should come as no surprise to those cognizant that FURIA is ranked #16 in the world according to HLTV. This powerful display of dominance took place on both Cache and Nuke, with the Brazilian powerhouse rolling through Spacestation 16-6, then 16-3. On Cache FURIA even earned a victory streak in the double digits. This was in no small part due to the work of Furia.gg’s most furious player: Vinicius ‘VINI’ Figueiredo. VINI had the most kills (47), most damage per round (110.8), and the best HLTV rating (1.73). Like the rest of his team, he was certainly motivated by FURIA’s secret weapon: their fans.
To say that FURIA’s fans were excited for this match is a gross understatement. These Brazilian party animals were dialed up to eleven for this showdown. They flooded the chat of the EFLGG stream, showing great support of both their team, and the EFLGG streamers like @JohnSteezyTV and @_SmithCommaJohn. This unbridled support of FURIA truly shows the dedication people have to this new wave of sports and entertainment.
Our love goes out to everyone that tuned into the EFLGG stream, as well as all the players in the match for their passion and determination that they imbue into every game.
