Europe wins ESEA All-Star game

Europe has claimed the title of the stronger of the two regions at the ESEA Finals after its All-Star team defeated that of North America 16-7 on de_dust2_se.

As expected, both teams took a no-nonsense approach to the game and opted for some fast-paced tactics to give the spectators the best possible viewing experience.

The European team, who started off on the Terrorist side, took an early lead thanks to a quick push onto the B site which the home side could do nothing to counter. The Europeans then easily made it 2-0, but the third round almost went the Americans' way. However, Filip "Neo" Kubski had different plans and picked up the ace to enlarge his team's lead.

The North Americans then reduced the deficit, having retaken the A after the European team had planted the bomb, but the visitors immediately restored a three-round lead thanks to Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom picking up four up kills to show a glimpse of his amazing skill.

By this time, the European team were in complete control of proceedings, forcing the North Americans to save after every round lost. Sam "DaZeD" Marine's side were now 9-1 down, but they picked themselves up and got their second round of the game as they stopped the Europeans' rush onto the B site.

North America now looked more lively and got two more rounds to reduce the deficit to 9-4, but the Europeans reacted and won the last rounds of the first half to go into the break up 11-4.


Neo put in great display in All-Star game

In the second half, North America opted for a classic B rush in the pistol round which caught the visitors off-guard. The two anti-eco rounds also went the way of the home side, who were now getting very close to their opponents on the scoreboard.

However, Europe fought back in the first gun round and easily put a hault to the Americans' momentum, with Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg clearing up the path with the AWP.

North America then opted for a quick long rush, but Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund and Kubski were there and easily took control of the situation as the Americans dropped like flies.

The score was now 14-7 in favour of the Europeans, and Azmican "asmo" Bergeroglu paved the way for his side to win another round with two AWP kills in the middle before Kubski sealed the deal with headshots onto the two North Americans who were rushing the A site. The following round went down to the wire, but Lindberg took out Todd "anger" Williams in the decisive 1on1 to give Europe the victory.

kennyS is way too inaccurate with it, whereas nico is much more precise. markeloff is not even near being in form with it.

well, atm taz is still better than neo, but Filip put in hours, if he could keep that shape, ESC would be much better I think, neo pasha and taz are the core players of ESC, enough to win important match

come on man, everyone in comments asks what neo and asmo do in this europe lineup. just check before match opinions

I don't care about scream, in fact I don't even consider him a good player..he just has the source advantage just like friberg
2013-04-20 03:39
Yes, clap clap. The fact is, TaZ has been way better than neo in CS:GO, so far. Of course he should have been chosen, but fanboys said otherwise. Great to see neo shoot some heads though.
2013-04-20 03:37
He got elected by US votes... Poland voted for TaZ: play.esea.net/index.php?s=poll&d=xmap&id..
2013-04-20 02:17
We'll see how he will do in real game.
2013-04-20 02:18
because statistically taz is better than neo.

The allstar match was a an easy walk in the f0rest for Neo leaving kiko and the NA team looking DaZeD, while Asmo's awp left Skadoodle wanting to Scream in Anger, as it seemed their was n0thing the American Allstars could Get_Right.
