Game: Counter-Strike 1.6

place2play.ru caused a major upset at TECHLABS Cup Ukraine 2012 by defeating Natus Vincere 16-13 in the final to win the tournament.

The Russian team had already shown that they could not be taken lightly earlier in the day, when they defeated ESC Gaming 16-12 to book a spot in the final, but few expected them to go all the way and win the tournament.

The final was originally expected to be played in a best-of-three mode, but apparently due to Yegor "markeloff" Markelov and Arseny "ceh9" Trynozhenko needing to catch a flight to Dubai, it was played on de_tuscan only.

place2play.ru, who started on the CT side, managed to go into half-time up 8-7, and in the second half they held onto the lead to secure the victory, losing six rounds in the process.

Result
TECHLABS Cup Ukraine..
place2play.ru
16
Natus Vincere
13

This looks to be a very promising result for the Russian side ahead of the PGS tournament in Oporto next month, where Na'Vi will also be in attendance.

TECHLABS Cup 2012 final standings:

1. place2play.ru - $5,000
2. Natus Vincere - $3,000
3. ESC Gaming $1,500
4. Virtus.pro - $500

Oløøøøø!!!

yes, in bo3 navi will win.. anyway gj p2p
2012-09-30 06:33:30
Not be so sure, cuz you can never know ! p2p beat navi's best map - de_tuscan and p2p also beat ESC at de_train.

This mixteam got players that is very talented and highly skilled, yet some of them not THAT famous.
