NOTE: Sorry i accidently missed to put the Russian flag when Dosia appeared. I mixed it up in my notepad file.
The event iself was rolled up to be played on more days than usual which was actually great, players had their time to actual rest which is not that common at events. We probably saw the best match yet between ESC Gaming and Virtus.Pro on de_inferno which lasted until the third Overtime and in the end ESC was victorious, was a pleasure to watch and follow the game.
Pasha went absolutely crazy on de_inferno against imG with a scoreline i can't explain myself but you actually see it in the video. He had like 4 rounds back-to-back where he got atleast 3 kills and this ended up in:
Finally an event where you could not predict the actual winner and an event that was really a good watch for the viewers.
I would personally title ScreaM or TaZ the MVP of this event after viewing all demos, what are your thoughts on it?
The best frag in my opinion was when Richard 'shox' Papillon enters the b bombsite with an opening frag, gets then to the dark spot and kills the remaining 4 russian players of zNation with only 4 hp left. Probably one of the best frags happened in 2012 aswell.
Virtus Pro after all surprised me, i didn't think they would do that well in the event.
When it comes to consistency i would also point my finger at TaZ because he always delivered, so many entry picks, so many -3 rounds and so many clutches et cetera - was really fun and in all honesty it was nice seeing him do well as he said time back in the statement he wants to deliver again.
ScreaM showed us what aiming means in the game, his deagle is ridiculous.
Congrats to ESC Gaming once again for winning it and finally stepping up their game, let's see what 2013 brings - i am actually convinced it will not be as easy for NiP as it was 2012! Feedback and comments are warmly welcome..
Oh and from now and every video will have an ESEA premium code for 1 month, have an eye on them ;-)
there are nice plays, the game is very tactical, too much even,,
but if u take a look almost every clips is in full while shooting... the game requires pressed button, not too much aim.. graphics need it too...
personally i dont like--
I do see what you mean, but in essence, as a frag highlight it gets boring, when it doesn't show how the match went (e.g. score) and are not consistent, but jumping between games.
For example in your mTw 360 degrees perspective or the EPS movie, they should be there, but in these highlights (closer to fragshows), I disagree.
