Wild Fire are the new EPS champions in Germany following a 2-0 victory over mousesports in the grand final of the Spring season.

The top four sides from the regular season gathered at the ESL's TV studio, in Cologne, to contest yet another edition of the EPS finals, with €7,500 up for grabs in this tournament.

Despite fielding a lineup with a stand-in (Fatih "gob b" Dayik, who replaced Timo "Spiidi" Richter), mousesports still entered the event as favourites, and they gave a good account of themselves in the semi-finals, beating EnRo GRIFFINS 2-0 (16-12 on de_inferno, 16-7 on de_dust2) to reach the tournament decider.


chrisJ's one-man show not enough to win title 

On the other end of the bracket, Wild Fire and ALTERNATE played out a three-map thriller, with Benjamin "qk-Mantis" Oberlein's side picking up a 2-1 victory (16-13 on de_mirage, 7-16 on de_dust2, 16-14 on de_inferno).

The first map of the grand final, de_dust2, was a very close affair and even went into overtime, where Wild Fire ran out 21-19 victors. de_inferno was much more one-sided, and in the end mousesports were downed 10-16, without a doubt a big disappointment for Chris "chrisJ" de Jong's side, who lose the German title.

How is that shittalk? and to answer your Q because I have history with 1.6, and do still like to follow international cs, I try to watch most matches of big tournaments, and even acted as on-site commentator for theblast big dutch csgo event, as well as the belgian one.
2014-05-12 20:23
Kräuter gave away the entry frags alot of rounds. Maybe he was tilted or just way 2 stubborn.
2014-05-11 15:55
chrisj outplayed him on d2 but he had some good rounds on inferno

Chris should find a better team!
2014-05-10 22:45
Well most teams have teammates all from the same country because that just works the best with everything (comm. in-game but also things outside the game). But we don't have good players besides him so we can't form a good team :P
2014-05-11 02:03
remember old fnatic.css back in the days with xertion, airraid, proph, darky & blaze. A really good team :) kajsk1ng is still active i believe? He was decent aswell
2014-05-11 02:44
I don't know anything about Sauce and neither about 1.6 since I only joined the scene/started playing CS about 6-7 months ago.
2014-05-11 14:20
kajsk1ng is way too unreliable/inactive/unstable to form a long-term team with. He's a good player, and he always will be. The dutch scene is dead, there's only a few decent dutch players, not enough to form a team to compete on top level.
2014-05-13 14:03
Avenue is good btw kajsk1ng top1 NL

wtf ? mousesports stats better than Wild Fire and they lost them.
2014-05-10 22:52
I was thinking the exact same thing... 2-0 for Wild Fire... Hard to believe from those stats.
2014-05-10 23:12
cause of too many 1v1 1v2 situations
2014-05-10 23:40
Yeah... More kills, less deaths. Still lost :\

Also better hs % across the board. But mouz had sone blowout rounds while usually the rounds of WF were really close. I remember somebrounds where the bomb blew up but they all got fragged. One where nooky had to run because of the time on inferno for instance. More kills for mouz and less deaths, but still a round to WF. just an example

Yeah how hard is it to say enkay j ( n k j )
2014-05-11 13:17
You do realize we read the simplest way to say it, if someone tweets the casters we will generally change but take into account its not easy to say half these names as fast as we have to. Please understand when someone writes their name enkay j we ignore the j as its separate.

And btw wasnt that njnja ( vinh bui tan ) standing behind mouz? Youd think at least the analyst recognizes him or points out he looks like him :/
