It really was something extremely unusual, something you might say would be seen in matchmaking.
For example: their economy was wiped out on their CT side (everyone reset to 1500 - 2500 bucks I think). Usually a force buy + eco would come (if they win the force buy they would be back, if not they would have a full buy after the eco). But no, they went for an eco and then a half buy that somehow worked, holding on to the A site with some...dubious weaponry.
Well...they won the map in the end. Let's see what the Lord of Time will come up with next.
