Furia can be monstrously good!
While NRG stomped the yard with their points tally, Furia really showed the world they're a force to be reckoned with. Running a rather unorthodox combination of Seer, Valkyrie, and Fuse, they really dished out the damage and bullied teams. Xeratricky's Fuse was something of a spectacle with fantastically placed Motherloads and consistent ordinance damage with his tactical and grenades.
They were a constant thorn on the side of their opponents. HisWattson put in a monstrous shift with Seer, interrupting heals consistently while his teammates piled on the misery of their victims with a constant rain of damage and pressure. They're definitely a team to watch out for in the Finals.
