SK-LGB mix win FACEIT January Cup

January 24th, 2014 12:13

An SK-LGB mix EL1TEGAM3RS1337 has won FACEIT January Championship and $800 after beating Nameless 2-1 (12-16 de_inferno, 16-13 de_cache, 16-4 de_dust2).

Once again eight teams took part in the monthly finals cup, once again four invited teams in the form of ex-AD, SK-LGB mix, fnatic and Nameless, and four teams who made it through qualifiers.

First round saw all the qualified teams get quickly eliminated with scores ranging from 16-1 in EL1TEGAM3RS1337's, the SK-LGB mix, match, to a narrow 16-12 win by the former Astana Dragons team.

The SK-LGB mix then disposed of 1337, the former Astana Dragons team, with a score of 16-9 on de_dust2 in the semi-final to clinch a spot in the best-of-three grand final.

dennis' mixteam EG1337 win January's FACEIT Championship

Second semi-final took a while to finish due to DDoSsing and other issues, but eventually it was Nameless who followed a 9-6 first half with a 7-4 effort to knock out fnatic.

Grand final saw Kenny "kennyS" Schrub's side win the opening map de_inferno 16-12. The Swedish mixteam led by the likes of Marcus "Delpan" Larsson and Dennis "dennis" Edman tied the series with a 16-13 win on de_cache.

It all came down to the third and final map de_dust2, where the Swedish mixteam prevailed as they annihilated Schrub's team with a final score of 16-4 for a 2-1 win overall.
