dAT won MCS Open Season 1 Finals after a very one-sided grand final 2-0 versus ACES (16-6 de_inferno, 16-3 de_nuke), getting the first place prize of $5,000.
MCS Finals kicked off yesterday with thirty-two teams battling for sixteen playoffs spots in eight groups. Some of the most interesting names among those who qualified for playoffs were dAT, Nostalgie, ACES, Check-Six and Moscow Five.
The biggest favourites of the tournament Nostalgie, whose lineup boasted three players of HellRaisers, ended up disappointing their fans in the round of sixteen, as they surprisingly lost to ACES.

The other favourite in dAT managed to go through the bracket without losing a map, despite having troubles with Piter in the quarter-finals, and Anton "tonyblack" Kolesnikov's Comeback right afterwards.
In the end it was ACES who joined dAT in the grand final, but it was a clear-cut sweep from the CIS lineup. Starting off on de_inferno, Andrey "B1ad3" Gorodenskiy's side managed to get eleven rounds as Terrorists, which was easy for them to turn into a 1-0 lead at 16-6.
de_nuke ended up being even more one-sided, as dAT started off as Counter-Terrorists. After getting a 13-2 lead, they didn't leave any room to breathe for the Russian side, as they finished the game only four rounds afterwards.
The third place decider saw Comeback in a tough battle with Belorussian 97club, as on de_mirage, both of the sides were won by Comeback in the tightest manner possible for a 16-14 win.
de_cobblestone was no easy task for the Russian lineup, 97club got all the way to eight rounds as Terrorists, but tonyblack and co prevailed in the end at 16-13.
