Nface came out on top of the Redbull ECL 2013 Grand Finals following a 2-0 victory over TyLoo in the tournament decider.
Held at the China Gaming Pavilion in Beijing's district of Shijingshan between January 3rd to 7th, with over €12,000 up for grabs in the four-team CS:GO tournament.
With the EMS One tournament at IEM Katowice due to feature one team from Asia, the CS:GO teams from this continent are working hard to pick up the pace, hoping that they will be invited to attend the event in Poland.
The first round of the ECL 2013 finals began with a mouth-watering contest between TyLoo and Nface, China's strongest teams, with the former coming out on top 16-14 on de_train.
The loss threw Nface to the Lower Bracket early in the tournament, but the Chinese team, who placed 5th-6th at the MSI Beat It Finals, were able to bounce back, beating NBDALE 16-8 and then FTW 16-7 to have a shot at getting back at TyLoo.
In the Grand Final, Nface gave a terrific account of themselves and defeated TyLoo on two maps (16-2 on de_inferno and 16-13 on de_train) to scoop the big prize of €8,490.
