iBUYPOWER are the new Casekings of the Hill following a 2-1 victory over Natus Vincere (10-16 on de_dust2, 16-8 on de_cache and 16-9 on de_inferno).
Fresh off a 5th-8th place finish at Gfinity 3, iBUYPOWER will be bootcamping in London for ESL One Cologne and began their preparations for the German event with a bang as they beat Copenhagen Wolves 2-0 (16-10 on de_dust2 and 16-8 on de_nuke) to set up a thrilling final against reigning Casekingchampions Na´Vi.
The final was anything but easy for the North American side, who found themselves on the back foot following a 10-16 defeat on de_dust2, where Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács picked up a +8 K/D ratio.
Edward picked up 33 kills on de_inferno
iBP then managed to turn things around and ran out 16-8 and 16-9 winners on de_cache and de_inferno to beat Na´Vi, who had been Casekings since the first edition of the tournament. Tyler "Skadoodle" Latham gave turned in a great performance on these maps, but still he was eclipsed by Ioann "Edward" Sukhariev, who amassed 33 kills on the last map despite Na´Vi losing by seven rounds.
