The Brazilian didn’t agree with m0E’s evaluation of his playstyle, though, responding that even though he dies a lot in matches, his deaths serve a purpose and he has no intention of altering his behaviour if his team is still beating other top squads.

“I create space and opportunity so my team has a better chance of winning the round,” wrote arT. “It’s only noticeable when it goes wrong, I don’t blame you for that, but as long as we are beating Tier 1 teams with this mentality, I’ll be dying somewhere.”

M0E admits that it is sometimes hard to tell from the outside looking in, but felt that arT needs to make adjustments, especially when it’s going wrong “round after round.”

He did later conceded that he was wrong in his original assessment that the Brazilian cost his team the match though, and wished him the best of luck in the future.

FURIA’s impressive run at the ECS Season 7 Finals came to an end when they squared off against French squad Vitality, who swept the Brazilians in a best-of-three to secure the trophy, and the $225,000 grand prize.

FURIA will return to compete in Europe in July, when they compete at ESL One: Cologne 2019.
