Why did NRG lose at MLG Vegas?

NRG were one of the fan favorites for the recently concluded MLG Vegas. Not many expected them to bow out in the Group stages. However they were against Faze and Cloud9. Cloud9 was phenomenal in the tournament and their bullish run started from the Group stages itself.

NRG lost to Cloud9 in their opening match 2-0. WIth the maps being WatchPoint : Gibraltar and Nepal, NRG were slightly out of their comfort position on Nepal. Their subsequent lower bracket match saw them pitted against Team Liquid. The team led by Seagull proved to be the better team on the day as they won the match 2-1. However this brought them against Cloud9 yet again. The results too proved to be similar to their last match-up.

Yahoo eSport caught up with Dummy and Numlocked from the NRG roster post their match loss to Cloud9. The trio talk about their loss at the event and the reasons leading up to it.

Dummy admits that the level of NRG gameplay right now is not at its best. Despite having a super star such as Seagull in their roster, the NRG team lacks team play. It is definitely something that they need to work on moving forward.
