/10/ beat ESC to win TECHLABS

/10/ won TECHLABS Minsk following a 16-14 victory over ESC Gaming in the final.

After ESC encountered problems with their connecting flight from Moscow to Minsk on Friday, the Polish team spent most of the day on the road, trying to get to the Belarusian capital in time to play against /10/, with $3,500 on the line.

Since they arrived at the venue at dinner time, it was only possible to play one map, with the effects of the long trip certainly felt amongst the so-called 'Golden Five'.

The map choice fell on de_inferno_se, where ESC got off to a flying start, going into the break with a 10-5 lead after playing on the CT side. But /10/ turned in a commanding display in the second half and turned the score around to secure a 16-14 victory and scoop the top prize.

2013-05-19 13:42
kartofel was gived for winners in quantity that equal 3500$ for 1st and 1500$ for 2nd place
2013-05-19 23:38
That was pretty hard for TCM to qualify for Dreamhack. rofl
2013-05-19 01:06
sad for ESC :((( they always lose...
2013-05-19 01:07
No excuses. TCM is mix team that played on hangover and did not even cared. ESC played bad. This round 29 :/

TCM still strong after guardian and shoxie left
2013-05-19 01:13
United States nytz 
guardian and karrigan are the 2 players in /10/ TCM played with asmo and qk-Mantis because they qualified with that line-up
2013-05-19 01:50
So after this event, asmo and Mantis will play in swogger, is this the last event?
2013-05-19 03:21
United States nytz 
yes , after this event 4th and 5th should be karrigan and GuardiaN , unless they've changed something again. And yes Mantis and asmo will play in swogger after this event
2013-05-19 03:25
World Tillt 
they only played with karrigan in 1 match and i doubt that they will continue playing together!
2013-05-19 04:25
United States nytz 
yes , however karrigan is in their roster in SLTV, so I would guess he is going to play for them on a regular basis
2013-05-19 08:15
maybe nille, but karrigan was bad.. just bad.

wtf bo1 HAHAHAH they are flight to minsk for 1 map? XD
2013-05-19 01:26
And $1,500 ESC better get their shit together or else we're going to see them called "again" again :\ love this team in 1.6, im sad:(
2013-05-19 01:34
it would be epic if they get kicked from esc so they need to use the tag 'AGAiN' again and then own everyone
2013-05-19 01:53
Haha it would be just like old times! ;D
2013-05-19 02:03
But count that they spent $1,500 (maybe more) for a trip since they have changed so many transports. So it was for nothing.
2013-05-19 10:27
They had a shot.This worths everything.
2013-05-19 11:20
strong, tcm is strong

Asmo and qk are good players. I think the problem with n! Was that disruptor and kirby And smn were underperforming all the time
2013-05-19 03:08
Kirby did step up when it didn't go well for asmo or qk.. But i'm with you on the part with disruptor and smn..
2013-05-19 07:48
missed the match can someone tell me asmo ,cly stats ? who was top fragger for both esc,tcm?

Isn't Karrigan an awper? Why would he join TCM when they already have GuardiaN? -_-
2013-05-19 05:16
karrigan is just a stand-in. this lineup is their official one. karrigan + guardian stand-ins
2013-05-19 05:25
This lineup is not offical because asmo and qk-mantis is playing for swogger i think they call themselves!

Surely ESC management should have sorted their flights/visas/passports and whatever shit it was that meant they couldn't get there on time? Isn't that why you have managers, so they can arrange all the crap that the players can't be bthered with? How can fail to research and check these things?
2013-05-19 11:19
man there was an article here on what happened, how about reading it before saying bs?

Firstly, fuck off twat. I read the article, did you? "However, ESC's players were stopped at the airport in Moscow, where they were about to board a connecting flight to Minsk, as they did not have a visa to enter the Russian capital." ESC management should be responsible for making sure the players can get to the event (that means sorting appropriate visas etc). They appear not to have done that....or have I missed something? How about not replying like a fucking angry prick next time?
2013-05-19 12:09
How about not replying like a fucking angry prick next time? --> What you just did dude. The main problem was that ESC lost everything when they had their luggage stolen, which is something their management crew can hardly be blamed for.

Honestly i rly dont get those fuckin Russain events.... Everyfuckin time. They invited 2 teams travell through half word only for playin BO1 map. Same with SLTV fuckin retarded- They invite 4 teams. Then theres like one fuckin match per day through 4 days. Russian events are the worst.
2013-05-19 13:09
lmao, wasnt a russian event, so cry more pls.
2013-05-19 13:25
your vocabulary amazed me.
2013-05-19 13:26
well, SLTV was one of the best events in GO so far, even if it was 1-2 matches per day

you need to make sure you're up-to-date before posting this kind of useless statements ---> hltv.org/news/10714-tcm-beat-esc-to-win-.. TECHLABS was ready for the event to play bo3, all your statements should be refered to ESC themselves as they are the main reason for the delay and that they only plaied one map. ESC made it to the event too late so they only had time to play one map because the exibition building or the shopping centre w.e. had to be closed for the night by the law, so please bring your complaints to ESC.
2013-05-19 14:24
use brains before posting this
2013-05-19 17:46
SLTV doesnt invite teams, you qualify for LAN finals in online matches.
