Immunity win CGPL Season 2 Winter

October 21st, 2014 14:00

Team Immunity have defeated Vox Eminor to win the CyberGamer Professional League Season 2 Winter and take home $2,750 and the title of this seasons champions.

In the first semi-final Vox Eminor took on Qlimax Crew, who have had a spectacular rise to fame with some great results in recent Online events. With little to no real LAN experience many questioned exactly how they would perform on the day infront of the live audience. The crowd didn't have to wait long as Qlimax Crew came bursting out of the blocks and took an early 5:0 lead before Vox Eminor cut them down and took the first map 16:9. The second map started much like the first one, with Vox Eminor starting slow again but the experience by the favourites meant they could close the match out 16:12 and book their place in the final.

The second semi-final would see Immunity faceoff against AVANT GARDE. In the past these teams have built a bit of rivalry with many of the players facing off last season the CGPL finals and more recently in the ESL Cologne Qualifier. The day belonged to Immunity with strong play from the team to the series with 16:14 and 16:02 scorelines favouring Immunity to meet Vox Eminor in the final.

In the 3rd place decider Qlimax Crew would go up against AVANT GARDE. With both teams coming fresh of a loss it was Qlimax Crew were able to compose themselves and play the better Counter-Strike. Qlimax Crew made light work of the reigning champions 2-0 with convincing wins 16-9 and 16-13 and make way for the main event to take unfold.

The clash of the titans between the two biggest organisations in Australian Counter-Strike history took place with Vox Eminor once again being plauged by slow starts and the inability to win pistol rounds. Against very tough opposition Vox Eminor could not make a dent in the destruction of the first half and the map finished 16:6.

With the smell of blood in the water, Immunity once again piled on the pressure and jumped out to a remarkable 14:7 lead on the must win second map for Vox Eminor. To the boys credit Vox did fight back all the way to 15:14 before failing at the last hurdle to finish 16:14 to Immunity.

Man of the match and of the entire finals series was Yaman "yam" Ergenekon, who showed why he is renouned as one of the best players to ever represent Australia in Counter-Strike.

This result will surely start many debates over which team is currently #1 in Australia but fans won't have to wait long as they are both scheduled to play at the Azubu Masters Australia on November 8 with another $6,000 on offer.

Nobody knows yet.
2014-10-21 14:13
there wont be one most likely. DHW had only EU teams last time besides the two NA teams, its just how they roll.

It's not because Vox are weak but rather because other teams have stepped up a lot recently.

Some great games, very enjoyable to watch. Sad to see VoxE lose, but well played to Immunity. Really enjoyed seeing Qlimax Crew play as well, and Ustillo's 36 frag game was pretty amazing.
2014-10-21 14:18
Interesting, hope we'll get to see some Australian cs at DHW :D

I hope that too but I doubt it :/

Now that this is settled, allow me to say that I will flip at least one table if DreamHack invites Vox Eminor for a major again.
2014-10-21 15:43
You've just reached all new levels of stupidity. You do realize this just means other teams are catching up to their level, right?
2014-10-22 02:12
when were they invited, i thought they qualified by beating immunity/trident
2014-10-22 04:39
Immunity back as no.1 Aussie team, lovely to see. Bring back 4Kings hoho.
2014-10-21 18:04
fzero vs 4k on cbble, never forget

Do you mean 3D? Or was there another game?
2014-10-21 21:57
he means "fRoD vs. 4Kings on cbble. One of the best POV's I've ever seen." That 3D/fzer0 match was also epic :D methz solo mid control as T.. legend
2014-10-22 05:11
TBGL2003 is still one of my fav cs movies of all time, editing during that time was amazing, even still decent to this day; G'wan the aussies, fzer0 and Immunity popping heads
2014-10-22 09:57
I hope now vox wont have a free spot on majors
2014-10-21 18:31
They didn't have a free spot at Cologne they qualified and they were invited to Katowice based off strong performance at MSI?
2014-10-22 00:17
I like Vox Eminor but is this like SnypeR showing Vox they shouldn't have kicked him? Just saying ._.
2014-10-21 18:35
snyper was anchoring vox (besides spunj the igl) vox need a real awper to start winning again
2014-10-22 01:14
2014-10-22 04:31
It was the reason back then (otherwise you wouldn't have been kicked) , maybe you've stepped up now :). Vox was obviously playing rusty compared to iM so I wouldn't be surprised if you became better than someone in Vox.
2014-10-22 11:02
2014-10-22 04:30
snyper best :D
2014-10-22 13:59
haha pretty much what i was thinking when i saw this news. never bet against snyper.
2014-10-22 07:40
Yes iM is back!

Will be fine to see them competing in Europe! Australian players are all tanks O_O
2014-10-21 20:38
Vox's lack of dedicated awp lost them the game. Havoc and topguN are both awful at awping.
2014-10-22 01:13
2014-10-22 04:40
Havoc was missing some pretty easy AWP shots and Rickeh/yaman were hitting the big ones.
2014-10-22 04:55
That's what happens when you compare Havocs 40 hours a month gametime to rickehs 400 hours a month. It's fair enough imo
