SPLYCE stun Vexed and qualify

SPLYCE have earned a spot at the MLG Columbus 2016 by beating Vexed in the winners' match in Columbus (16-7 on de_mirage).

Splyce played with an agressive style to kick things off on the CT-side and were able to secure the first round. Vexed pushed the A-site twice and planted the bomb on the second and the third round but Splyce hanged on and picked up the 3-0 lead. The Polish side rushed the B-site on their first gun round and were successful in their attempt (3-1).

The American team struck back with the two guns they had saved from the previous round and stopped the A-push of their opponents. After the deficit extended to seven when Splyce led 8-1. Despite a really weak buy from the Polish team, they got their second round by rushing the B-site which was left empty by the Americans.


SPLYCE suprised everybody 

Andrew "Professor_Chaos" Heintz's 1v3 crushed Vexed once again as the American-Canadian team were ahead 10-2. They gave away two more rounds to end it at 11-4. The Poles started the second half pretty well, getting the first three rounds. But Arya "arya" Hekmat's opening kills in two consecutive rounds allowed his team to get to thirteen rounds (13-7). Abraham "abE" Fazli's 1v2 clutch finished things off.

Old american spirit. They have no huge salaries, they have no big sponsors, and no sloth. They aren't typical americans of nowadays: lazy and arrogant. They just fight to win, to represent US at big tourney. Endangered species of people.

2016-02-27 20:40
Actually they do have a sloth, did you not see Abe interview, only NA team with a Sloth actually. But I do know what you mean, doubt they will go far in the Major though, but they have a nice logo for stickers.
2016-02-27 20:42
I'll +1. Splyce aren't stellar and I fully expect them to be stomped by any of the teams that currently have the "Legend" status, but simply seeing their massive hype, passion for the game and legit happiness is enough to warrant my respect for them.
2016-02-27 20:43
Definitely, it made me feel so happy to see a hyped up NA team that actually cared! They looked like they were crying from qualifying, man.

Just be happy for them. I hope tempo qualifies next!
2016-02-27 20:45
I'm pretty happy for them, mainly because it was really good to see a team so hyped. They really played their game and got in a major and they will get tons of money. However, it's a wasted spot since they will get obliterated in the major. I hope for them to get in LG group so we can have a free pass :)

nah its actually a good argument, since the groups were unbalanced, group D was stacked with Renegades,C9,Dignitas and Gambit while group C was the easiest group SK,CLG,Vexed,Splyce. now dignitas who is a good team is out, while Splyce got an easy path. i'm sure that if they mixed group D and C the results would be different. idk about you but i don't think that Dignitas would lose to Splyce.
2016-02-28 00:33
Actually that's true. But that is just luck by splyce! Imo the format of a major minor is actually very wrong if you can qualify for a 1m tournament by just winning 2 bo1! It's not like I don't like splyce but I think the format just doesn't fit the caliber of the a major ...

There is 2 or 3 teams that's playing with standins this qualifier? Valve need to fix visas for all teams if they want it in us again it seems to be really hard for some teams. Really nice showing of splyce though got a lucky chance to play and boy did they make the most of it and now got sticker money it's probably more then they ever won before.
