April 22nd, 2013 06:47

Finnish Curse have topped ESPC #2 in Helsinki this weekend with a 16-13 win on de_mirage_go over in the grand final to clinch the first place and 750€.

Curse were coming off a disappointing showing at Copenhagen Games and had a couple of weak online results as well prior to defeating Natus Vincere in ESL's A-Series.

They had some tough competition in all of Finland's creme in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive as Miikka "dRiim" Toroi's Ence eSports and, formerly known as RAIDERS, were in attendance.

Aleksi "allu" Jalli's team wound up topping their group with four straight wins and then defeated Ence eSports in the upper bracket semi-final before besting 2-1.

After lower bracket finished with defending ESPC #1 champions coming out on top, Curse defeated them again, this time 16-13 on de_mirage_go to clinch the tournament win.

ESPC #2 final standings:

1. Finland Curse - 750€
2. Finland - 500€
3. Finland Team - 250€
4. Finland Quality Gaming

ESPC is currently running an online league whose finals are expected to take place in June at Solid Gaming 2, scheduled to be held in Helsinki's Medialukio.

Here they talk about 16-11 in grand final. Was it really one map or was it just that Curse had one map due to coming from the winner bracket ?

having hard time reading?

More like I'm having a hard time believing. Apparently another source says that the result wasn't 16-13 but 16-11, so I have legitimate reasons to believe they might be wrong for the format as well. I know usually HLTV mention when there is a default loss due to the format, but for the reason I mentioned above I prefer to double check. If you have informations please share them, otherwise, thank you for worrying about my reading.

I think it was 16-13 and yeah we had one map advantage due to double elimination bracket - hence only played 1 map in the grand final.

The final ended 16-11 for curse, not 16-13. Please fix this as it makes Curse look really shit.

2 rounds makes such a difference? Curse is shit, we saw that in CPH. They are not that much better than myDGB, even less if at all in a couple of months

+1. Ence will be better than curse etc. They need little bit more practice. And now it is very interesting bcause they kicked saggerton and aslak will replace him. Nice to see how he gonna performance with new lineupzz

2013-04-22 21:14

2013-04-22 21:28
