Virtus.pro have once again won ESL Pro Series Poland, taking out season 8 with a 2-0 victory over ESC Gaming (16-13 on de_train, 16-12 on de_mirage) to take home the 5,000 PLN (€1,200) first prize.

The ESL Pro Series Poland Season 8 finals, hosted in the M1 Shopping Center in Kraków, saw the top four teams from the group stage vying for a piece of the 10,000 PLN pot.

Though Virtus.pro, the defending champions, were the clear favourites, their results in recent tournaments had some doubting their ability to retain the title.

The semi-finals went some way to assuaging those doubts, however, as Virtus defeated RedWinged 2-0, with a win on their favoured map de_mirage (16-11), and an almost-flawless victory on de_inferno (16-1).


Virtus retain their EPS Poland title, thanks in part to a stellar performance from Paweł "byali" Bieliński

ESC's road to the final was less straightforward. Despite an impressive first map (16-1 on de_train), ALSEN quickly turned the tables, winning 4-16 on de_dust2. ESC persevered, though, winning the deciding map, de_mirage, 16-9 to secure their place in the finals.

In the finals, Virtus were the clear favourites to win, but that didn’t stop ESC from putting up a decent fight. On each map, rounds were traded back and forth (and at one point on de_mirage, ESC even managed to build a lead), but ultimately Virtus.pro proved too strong, pulling away in the last few rounds of both maps to take the series in a clean sweep.

Damn, everyone one VP seems to be able to carry, except Neo of course.
2014-07-06 22:10
Are you implying that Neo is garbage ?
2014-07-06 22:57
I would never
2014-07-06 23:00
"Their results in recent tournaments had some doubting their ability to retain the title." LOL really? The rest of the Polish scene is pure dogshit, there is no way VP could drop a map.
2014-07-06 22:12
dogshit compared to swedish or french scene but still better than russian (you just have dosia and seized thats all)
2014-07-06 22:16
Russian = 100 percent loose and cheating in MM, so dont be proud. Only seized and Dosia, this is everything. :D Sry just true story :)
2014-07-06 22:54
all russia is dog shit, except dosia and seized
2014-07-07 00:17
Oh if I only cared.

2014-07-07 08:08
esc great match, they can be best in some time!
2014-07-07 08:41
So according to the stats Pasha has 1 more frag than Neo. He also has 6 more deaths but still comes out ahead on the rating. That really isn't right.

I don't think it's based just off kills to deaths, I think it takes into account 1v* clutches as well, and maybe some other random stats.
