Virtus.pro have bested dignitas 2-0 (16-10 de_inferno, 16-14 de_season) to win FACEIT Spring League 2014 and $10,000.

The eventual champions had a rough start in the league, finishing in shared 3-5th place together with ex-LGB and Titan, forcing a new mini group among the three to determine who advances.

There Virtus.pro prevailed with wins over both, securing a playoff spot. They defeated LDLC in the upper bracket semi-final, but were knocked down to the lower bracket by dignitas.


Virtus.pro add another championship to their collection 

After Titan knocked LDLC out at fourth place, the Poles took down the French-Belgian side, and got a rematch versus dignitas in the grand final, this time with no advantage for the Danes despite winning the upper bracket.

In the grand final Virtus scored a 16-10 win on de_inferno to open the series, and clinched the championship with a 16-14 scoreline on de_season for a 2-0 win overall.

Didn't dignitas beat VP in a BO3 2-1 earlier to get into the upper bracket? To support you, it should be 2-3 with VP on top lol Dig-VP 0-1 season 1-1 dust2 2-1 mirage 2-2 inferno 2-3 season

Imagine it was advantage for Dignitas 1:0. Ok, they lost 1:2, problem solved. The hard story is when VP played Starladder(?) not sure if it was that tournament, and they came from upper bracket, won first map, lost next 2.

bo5 is not a regular boX, even with upper and lower bracket, bo3 is. but excuse is an excuse.

meaningless, so it was 2:0 (2:1 with advantage)

It's not meaningless at all. You approach the game differently if you know you're up a map.

their disadvantage was coming from the LB and having to play another final before the upper bracket final you turd.

gratz virtus, nice tournament, pretty stupid imo that dignitas didnt have any advantage because they came from the upperbracket but on the other hand it made the matches more interesting
2014-06-01 23:51
They have won 2:0 so what that one map advantage would change? In the final Virtus.Pro was much better, Dignitas played really bad compared to the final bracket. Anyway that was really amazing tournament and waiting for next edition, and more csgo action. GG WELL PLAYED
2014-06-01 23:56
The whole mentality of the game would change. You approach the game differently if you're up a map, and you approach the game differently if you're down a map.
2014-06-01 23:58
You might be right, I have never been in such a situation so can't really grade whether you are right or not. But in fact, rules were known long time before the tournament had started so no one can complain about the system. Dignitas can just blame themself for such horrible performance on inferno and first half on season. GG
2014-06-02 00:05
when there is bo5 people are complaning that there is an advantage, it there is bo3 people are complanng that there was no advantage :)
2014-06-02 00:10
you dont see me complaining when there is a bo5 so why are you talking to me
2014-06-02 00:38

2014-06-02 00:01
Id assume its the fact that taz refused to swap servers after testing the NL server. We had a slight ping advantage (like 10 ms?). The admin instantly wanted to go back to the one where I had 200 ms. Guess its somewhat fair that taz wants to gain whatever advantage he can, but the admin acted really poorly and tbh felt like he wanted to bum bum someone :D
2014-06-02 00:04
ye well hes a scumbag isnt he, fuckig kid in a 30 year old man body
2014-06-02 00:42
These polish guys trying to cheat themself to skins. Ofcourse they trying to cheat with ping advantage aswell. I've said it before, they should be banned from the scene.
2014-06-02 00:50
I didnt say that he wanted to cheat or somehow act poorly. He wanted a more even ping, admins then wanted to go back to the german server. nl server = 10-20 ping advantage dignitas de server = 200 ping advantage vp. I dont get why the admin tought that it would be fair to play on the german one. And i think he did his job poorly.

We had 1,5 hour before our game, admin wrote to players to be on skype 20:30, asked about servers, both teams said .de is okey. We join the server wait for Fetish to finally arrive (10-15minutes), he comes with ping 110+, they don't say a word, we start the game -> knife round + 2 rounds, 3rd round Dig asks for server change. I'm like WTF, now? Okey lets check in half of the map, really no other scenario in the world was possible. So we change the server to .nl, Fetish ping is now 25~, 3 of Dig 15~, ours same as before 35+. We did not agree to play vs 3x lan ping. Admin called to go back to .de server (that's perfectly correct, as u have time to check your ping), then we ask about .nl/.uk, not Dignitas, they already started to write stupid shit, we were the ones to ask for better solution. So we go to other server, Fetish has good ping, most of them around 30~, and we had like 4 guys with ping 50 (ping in console = 66), but hey lets play, we want don't want this stupid fight. Server was terrible for us, we still played, still won the game.

110 ping is internet provider issue and provider should be changed if FeTiSh can't have stable ping on .DE. What he will do when he will play russians next time?
2014-06-02 03:25
Even though this doesn't seem fair from taz (and we know he is childish). I just want to say you and your team are hypocrites, you guys complain about everything, your team is x4 get_right. Edit: xyp9x is good

Stop cry nub. You got ping ~100, and Neo got also same like You. Neo is MVP, You are loser, so stop crying, and be a man. Ps. Pasha will get You @ next lan anyway. VIRTUS PWN YOU EZPZ.
2014-06-02 12:18
Lol, stupid scrub. If you didn't wanna play on de servers, maybe you shouldve asked the admin a second time before starting to play again. I don't understand you idiotic shitbags that go through with the game, then lose, then starts complaining "Blabla, upperbracket, blabla, servers" It's not like you went in and played the stupid tourney blindfolded. Stop whining. VP deserved to win, you guys played poorly.

I think the problem was that upper and lower brackets should not be for 4 teams only. It is great for bigger tournaments. Map advantage is give a way, not really interested in it as finals could be very boring.

Glad that Pasha is finally getting some attention, maybe he doesn't have a lot of spectacular highlights, but is stable like a rock in every game. Biceps is always with you!

I agree it's not ok to have no advantage coming from the WB but dignitas knew the rules from the start. But only started crying about it after the loss. If they wanted to speak up it should have been before the series :)

Although dignitas deserved some advantage for coming from the upper bracket, I think vp were much better. They would have won anyway imo
2014-06-02 12:28
Anyway dig should advantage 1:0 then match will be simple no way VP can handle it and win with them

Please make a demo with all aces/highlights from this tournament :) hltv.org/?pageid=195&eventid=1357&gameid..

I feel shame for beting in this tournament, now that it end, and i won almost every bets, i feel shame. Was truly unfair that "2nd Final" on a BO3 with no advantage to Dig.. And we all saw, that Dig was the best team playing yesterday, even in season (a VP's map). Next time, that tournament has to "Evolve" or it would be better not make it, BO5 and no advantage it would be unfair enough, think about it.

no.

It seems to VP found at least solution on Dignitas. Rules are rules, for everybody the same. Dignitas had problems with Fetish ping, and next VP had higher pings, between 50 and 60. I agree that double elmination with 4 teams is not good idea. Maybe it should 6 teams go to playofff, first 2 should have free choice, and play to the winners of matches 3vs6 and 4vs5.
