TSM defeat rivals fnatic 3-0 (16-4 on de_inferno and 16-10 on de_dust2, with a one map advantage) in the grand final of GameShow League's second season.
Much like another $30,000 online league which concluded recently, Game Show Studio's second season of its CS:GO League was beset with delays due to teams' increasingly hectic schedules, and took nearly eight months to reach the grand finals.
With a difference of $8,000 on the line between first and second place however, the eventual grand final which played out today was not a matter to be taken lightly.
With TSM having advanced through the upper bracket, the Danish outfit went into the best-of-five series with a one map advantage. Finn "karrigan" Andersen and his men needed no such buffer on the first map however, as it was a 16-4 whitewash for the Danes.
TSM gave an online glimmer of still being fnatic's Kryptonite in another series
Although the second map of de_dust2 saw fnatic somewhat awoken with a 10-5 T side for the Swedes, Nicolai "device" Reedtz and Peter "dupreeh" Rasmussen put in exceptionally strong performances that sealed the map and the series for TSM.
