Cloud 9 have followed the same formula since after the major every map:
1. Get a lead/keep it close until you get to around 11 rounds
2. Lose a round you should never lose (losing against a save, losing a 5v3 etc)
3. Proceed to lose every round until the map ends
4. Repeat for map 2
The throw came later this map than normal yet it still happened right on the formula.
