In just a short week GL.Snute has taken down two big tournaments. Starting with winning the 4PL Monthly finals against players such as TSL.Symbol, Acer.Bly and TSL.HyuN. He then went on to take down the entire ONOG i2 Invitational, winning his group with 3-0 and going all the way to win the entire thing.
One Nation of Gamers Invitational
Jens "Snute" Aasgaard started last week playing the group stages of the ONOG invitational where he was to face opponents such as Empire.Kas, coL.Killer and ePi.Boyo. Going into the tournament as one of the players voted in by fans he was said to be an underdog in the group. He managed to proove why he was voted in by the fans by taking the group win with an impressive 3 - 0 score and 6 - 1 in maps only dropping one game to Boyo.
Now that the group stages were over with, Snute could relax a bit as he knew he had already prooven himself to the fans and casters. Still, the casters had him ranked as the underdog in the round of 16 where he was to play Fnatic.NightEnD. With a more relaxed playstyle he took out Nightend 2 - 0 and was ready for the quarter finals. In the quarter finals Snute was to face RoX.KIS.Titan and this time the casters had taken note of who Snute was. Snute planned the games out before they even started and it worked out just as he had planned with another 2 - 0 win. Snute was now ready for the semi-finals and was to play against none other than Liquid.Sheth. The semi-finals were a best of 5 series and with the first 2 games going on the NA server Snute was a bit worried about the deelay. He was right to be worried with the combination of delay and a great player but Snute quickly adapted and after a full series of 5 games Snute came out on top with a 3 - 2 win.
It was now time for the finals and waiting as his opponent was the former code S player coL.Killer. Snute felt confident before the best of 7 final started as he had a 2 - 0 against Killer in the group stages to back him up. He had another challenge as fatigue after hours and hours of hard games and the lack of sleep was kicking in (it was 5 am or so in Norway when the finals started). As the finals started it was clear that both players were fighting fatigue after hours of gaming and the finals were intense. They went all the way and had to play all 7 games before a winner could be crowned. Snute managed to take the 7th and final game to land a total score of 4 - 3 in his favour and by that winning ONOG and 2000$!
Thursday last week Snute also had secured himself a spoth in the monthly finals of the 4PL Cup. As the tournament was only streamed in german and alongside many other events alot of people didnt get to see Snute go all the way in this tournament.
It is not to be ignored as he had plenty of top level opponents he had to get past in this tournament as well.
To win the tournament he took down several great players: Type.Phoenix, TSL.Symbol, Acer.Bly and in the final he took down TSL.HyuN 2 - 0! With the win in this tournament he also took home a prize of 250€.
