G2 survive Tempo Storm scare
G2 survive a back-and-forth 16-13 battle with Tempo Storm on de_dust2, as they advance to the winners' match to face FlipSid3 for a spot at the major.
Three following rounds saw G2 taking early control over each of the sites, while Tempo Storm had to save a few weapons three times in a row. Henrique "HEN1" Teles picked up three kills in the following round from long to retake the lead, only for G2 to reply back to take the game to 7-5.
Triples from João "felps" Vasconcellos and Gustavo "SHOOWTiME" Gonçalves pushed the game to a tie before Ricardo "boltz" Prass made sure Tempo Storm would go over to Terrorists with a lead, as he picked up four kills, including three in a 2-on-3 retake.
RpK's double at the end pushed G2 over the line
A pistol round victory for TS was negated by Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom in the B bombsite and G2 tied the map at 9-9 before losing to a very low forcebuy with a saved weapon. The two teams exchanged rounds after 11-9, which forced G2 on a save.
A saved AWP and a quasi-buy was enough for them to win a round as Richard "shox" Papillon and Edouard "SmithZz" Dubourdeaux picked up crucial doubles on the A bombsite. Exchanging two more meant a poor economical situation for G2, but yet again they ran away with it to equalize the game for the seventh time at 13-13, and even took it to 14-13 due to an eco on Tempo Storm's side.
A very close round afterwards was saved by Cédric "RpK" Guipouy's crazy 180-degree headshot in pit, as shox's patience allowed G2 to get to match point due to time running out. That was soon after exchanged for a narrow 16-13 victory for the French-Belgian team.
