FlipSid3 advance to APM final

FlipSid3 advance to the Acer Predator Masters Season 2 Finals grand final after beating E-frag.net 2-1 (de_inferno 12-16, de_overpass 16-7, de_cbble 16-4).

The last day of competition in Krefeld, Germany, was kicked off by E-frag.net, FlipSid3, and their consolidation final, starting with de_inferno picked by the Bulgarians, who also got off to a great start thanks to a won pistol round.

After surviving a couple of anti-ecos E-frag.net failed to succeed in the first gunround, but they did reply in the second gunround before FlipSid3 surprisingly forcebought twice in a row. Neither of the low buys worked out however, as Kamen "bubble" Kostadinov picked up five frags over the two rounds in retakes of the B bombsite.

E-frag.net continued to pile up rounds with no reply from FlipSid3, as the score soon showed 11-1. A smart fake from Andrey "B1ad3" Gorodenskiy's team after getting a couple of entries then helped them take their second round in the half, but they quickly got reset at 12-2. A not-so-good forcebuy was enough for FlipSid3 who went on to clinch the last round for 12-3.

They started a solid streak on the second half, starting with the pistol round, a couple of forcebuys and an eco from E-frag.net, getting to 7-12 before Simeon "dream3r" Ganev stopped the rot with a quad-kill and a 1-on-2 clutch.


E-frag.net kicked things off in style 

Individual play from Yegor "markeloff" Markelov and bubble in three of the following four rounds set the score at 15-9, although it took E-frag.net four more rounds to close it out at 16-12.

Map two, de_overpass, looked much stronger for markeloff's side, who went on to pick up six rounds in a row at the beginning thanks to opening kills in two gunrounds and a 1-on-3 by Georgi "WorldEdit" Yaskin against a scary eco round.

E-frag.net got back on their feet and got three out of the following four rounds, but that was all they could get until the end of the half, as FlipSid3 stormed to a 12-3 halftime score as Terrorists.

Switching over to CTs, FlipSid3 managed to pick up the second pistol round as well, but it was dream3r and company to reply back quickly with four in a row for 13-7. 

That was all she wrote for the Bulgarians however. A smart rotation including a flank in a forcebuy allowed FlipSid3 to regain control and take all three remaining rounds to even out the series at 16-7.


After struggling on the last couple of maps bondik stepped up on the decider

de_cbble was chosen as the decider, and it was a Vladyslav "bondik" Nechyporchuk show from start to end on the first half, where FlipSid3 started as Counter-Terrorists. A double from him and the in-game leader in the pistol set the team up for a 5-0 lead before E-frag.net replied with two in a row to break their opponents' economy.

bondik continued with a superb performance in the next couple of rounds as well, which included a triple from him for 9-4, after which the Bulgarians were forced on a couple of bad buys.

He finished the half with a 23-8 score at 11-4, and it was quite obvious that the end result was decided once FlipSid3 got a hold of the second pistol round as well. The mostly-Ukrainian squad didn't leave any room to breathe, as they picked up five in a row on their Terrorist side to get another chance at defeating mousesports.

FlipSid3 are now heading into the grand final, where they will get a re-match with mousesports in a best-of-five series.
