VG say goodbye with EPS trophy
VeryGames have gone out with a bang, winning EPS France in the team's last event for the organisation.
Starting next month, the French giants will have to find a new organisation to represent after VeryGames' chiefs revealed that they no longer have the financial means to support such a demanding team, who attend international events practically every month.
Winning EPS France would be the best way for the team to say goodbye to VeryGames, who became a household name in the Counter-Strike scene, but the players knew that they would need to be at their best to best Clan-Mystik, who, however, were playing with Mathieu "Maniac" Quiquerez as a stand-in (Hovik "KQLY" Tovmassian was at the hospital).
In what was a rematch of the ESWC grand final, played in a best-of-five format, VG got off to a wonderful start, picking up a 16-5 victory on de_mirage. The next two maps were very close, with VG coming out on top by the skin of their teeth, but what really matters is that they walked out 3-0 victors to win the EPS title.
WARMAKER forfeited the third-fourth place decider, meaning that Mistral walk away with the €1,000 cheque.
EPS France XI final standings:
1. VeryGames - €3,000
2. Clan-Mystik - €1,500
3. Mistral - €1,000
4. WARMAKER - €500
