VeryGames win RC EMS One Summer
VeryGames have won RaidCall EMS One Summer 2013 finals after an easy 2-0 victory over Virtus.pro (16-8 de_mirage_ce, 16-11 de_dust2_se) for $12,000.
VeryGames opened up the grand final on de_mirage_ce with a quick push into the B bombsite where they wiped out Virtus' defenders. Two risky anti-eco pushes to B followed, with Virtus winning the third one versus a careless VeryGames team.
Nathan "NBK" Schmitt's four kill effort quickly shifted momentum back on VeryGames' side, as they extended their lead to 4-1. Virtus had no answers to the Frenchmen despite Sergey "Fox" Stolyarov's four save round kills, as they lost six more straight rounds.
Trailing 1-10, Stolyarov added three more AK47 kills in the B tunnel and scored his team just their second round of the half. Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom replied with three AK47 kills of his own, and the last two rounds were traded for a 12-3 half time score.
Mihail "Dosia" Stolyarov's two entry frags into B gave Virtus the second half pistol round, but after barely missing out on the defuse in round two, Schmitt gets four kills on the third round to win his team a save round.
NBK was definitely the Finals MVP at RC EMS One
With Virtus.pro's play in shambles, they hung around for a couple of rounds, but weren't able to match the level of play Kevìn "Ex6TenZ" Droolans' team showed, and fell short 8-16.
Richard "shoxie" Papillon and Edouard "SmithZz" Dubourdeaux combined for four kills on de_dust2_se's counter-terrorist pistol round. The CIS-based squad's in-game leader Kirill "ANGE1" Karasiow then scored four AK47 kills on the third round, but even that wasn't enough, as Schmitt's one-on-four clutch won VG the round.
Virtus stuck to their game plan and wound up winning the next seven rounds in a row for a 7-3 lead, including a two-on-three by Sergey "Fox" Stolyarov and Emil "kucher" Akhundov in B as it looked like they were taking over the match.
VeryGames came back with a three-on-three retake win at A though, and although Virtus won the round after, the Frenchmen didn't surrender and took two more rounds, ultimately finishing with six as defenders.
VeryGames win their second international CS:GO event
Schmitt continued his MVP-level play by scoring three kills on the pistol round that effectively tied the game at nine. Fourth round went to VG as well, and after a save round they were in the lead at 11-9.
The Stolyarov brothers combined for five kills on round twenty-two, but had no time to defuse and VG extended their lead. The French then executed a full on B rush that put them up 14-9.
Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács clinched a one-on-one versus Schmitt on the next round to win Virtus a save round, and Sergey "Fox" Stolyarov's three kills secured an anti-eco for VP to make it 11-14.
That would be all the rounds Virtus.pro could muster up though, as they were simply shut down once more by VeryGames who clinched a 2-0 series win and their second international CS:GO tournament win after Mad Catz Birmingham in April.
