Planetkey win EPS Winter 2014
Planetkey Dynamics won EPS Germany Winter 2014 following a 2-1 victory over mousesports (21-18 on de_overpass, 12-16 on de_dust2 and 16-3 on de_mirage).
The top four sides from the regular EPS season gathered at ESL's TV studio, in Cologne, on Saturday, hoping to get their hands on the top prize of €4,000.
Planetkey Dynamics came into the event as defending champions, and they did not take long to confirm their status as a favourite as they moved past dotpiXels 2-0 in the semi-finals, losing just 12 rounds in the process.

Despite fielding Andre "nooky" Utesch as a stand-in following the departure of Finn "karrigan" Andersen to dignitas, mousesports also defeated myPKV.de on just two maps, with Aleksi "allu" Jalli taking all the plaudits with his +16 K/D ratio.
With the grand final pitting Germany's strongest teams against each other, it was no surprise to see the match going to a third map. Planetkey Dynamics took the lead in the series following a 21-18 victory on de_overpass, but then mousesports levelled things up with a 16-12 success on de_dust2. The final map was de_mirage, and here PK Dynamics simply ran riot as they thrashed their opponents 16-3.
