CSGO: Cloud9’s Mixwell wins insane 1v5 with the Krieg vs. FURIA

Cloud9’s main AWPer, Óscar ‘Mixwell’ Cañellas, has shown why he is one of Europe’s finest CS:GO talents, as he posted up a swift 1v5 vs. FURIA — even taking down his teammate for good measure. 

Cañellas is now reunited with former teammate Damian ‘daps’ Steele, and the pair will be looking to rekindle what brought about their success under OpTic, and perhaps emulate the prior successes of Cloud9, who were triumphant at the ELEAGUE: Boston Major at the beginning of 2018. 

Albeit a relatively new roster, Mixwell and co. are already making significant headway as they’ve already notched some impressive results versus the likes of NRG, MiBR and FaZe at the BLAST Pro Series back in July. 

Helena Kristiansson (ESL)Mixwell will be looking to reign supreme once again alongside daps.

Fast-forward to September, and Mixwell was showing his worth yet again, this time versus the upcoming Brazilian talent, FURIA. 

The match was evenly poised at 10 rounds apiece, and in a round where FURIA were invested in planting the bomb at all costs, Mixwell initially found himself alone on the B bombsite. 

Smoked-off and with the Brazilians making the charge towards him, Mixwell picked off each of the Terrorist squad one-by-one — even taking down his teammate Tyson ‘TenZ’ Ngo along the way. 

After Mixwell’s first trip across the pond with OpTic Gaming came to an abrupt end in 2018, the Spanish AWPer found himself at a loose end, with a trial at G2 Esports and an attempt at forming an all-Spanish team with Movistar Riders falling short of Cañellas’ expectations. 

Following a short spell back on home turf, Mixwell is back in North America competing for Cloud9, and the 23-year-old appears to have rediscovered his groove. 

At the Arctic Invitational, the Spaniard was leading the charge, being the only member of Cloud9 to have both a positive impact swing and a positive K/D ratio across both maps against the Brazilians. 

Although Cloud9 came up short against FURIA, Cañellas certainly looks to be showing glimmers of the Mixwell of old; one that could mix it with those at the very top of their game.

BLAST Premier Fall Showdown teams

BLAST Fall Showdown 2020

The BLAST Premier Fall Showdown included a mix of European and North American teams, the latter of which traveled to Europe to get a better connection to the online tournament.

FURIA, NiP, FaZe, and Complexity found themselves here after BLAST Premier Fall Series, where they failed to qualify for the finals, placing 3rd-4th in their groups. Heroic took Evil Geniuses’ spot after the NA squad was denied travel to Europe due to health restrictions.

Mouz, Virtus.pro, Sprout, and Spirit received invites to participate in the event. While Team Liquid decided to not take part in the group stages, their partnership with BLAST landed them an invite to the Showdown.
