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.
