Virtus.pro over Tempo in Group D

Virtus.pro win their Group D winners' match, defeating Tempo Storm 16-9 on Mirage in the final match of the second day of DreamHack Masters Malmö.

The Group D winners' match at DreamHack Masters Malmö was between Virtus.pro and Tempo Storm, the #5 and #13 ranked teams in the world respectively, with the first ever offline encounter between the two having gone the way of Tempo Storm (16-9 on Cobblestone) at IEM Katowice in the month before.

The Brazilian team got things off to a rolling start with a T-side pistolround that saw them overwhelm the Poles and put a round on the board. However, much like the Group C winners' match, the second round was a complete reversal as this time it was Janusz "Snax" Pogorzelski who utilised the SS08 or Scout and a grenade to devastating effect to break down Tempo's set-up and force the latter team to save.

Virtus.pro used this momentum to pull ahead to a 3-1 lead but it was once again a Henrique "HEN1" Teles-led offensive that afterwards saw the Brazilians pick up successful T-side rounds to take the lead at 4-3.

"Could it be? The return of the Plow?"

With Wiktor "TaZ" Wojtas having a penchant for solid CT-sided play in offline games, the Polish elder and Snax combined to continue shutting down Tempo's takes afterwards and regained the advantage in the half. Despite a few more rounds accrued by João "felps" Vasconcellos and crew, the first half ultimately went to the Poles' advtange: 9-6.

The second pistolround saw Paweł "byali" Bieliński secure three Glock kills in quick succession (and even secure a fourth by the round's end), meaning that VP moved ahead to a commanding 10-6 scoreline, with breathing room to spare for their T-side.

The Poles kept this pressure up going into the first gunround and, with a Tempo defense looking increasingly fragmented, Filip "NEO" Kubski and crew moved ahead to a 14-6 advantage. The ensuing round was the Ricardo "boltz" Prass show as the former Luminosity player secured three kills to put the Brazilians back on the board and give the team some newfound hope.

This hope worked for the next few rounds as Tempo Storm managed to fight their way back to a 9-14 deficit but that exact round saw byali win a one-versus-two at the B site to put the Polish team back in the game. The round afterwards saw all the dominoes fall as VP overwhelmed the A-site and took the game 16-9.

byali and snax were so well. but tempo storm was also nice try!!
2016-04-13 22:30
sad day for brazilians but just bo1, dont worry :>
2016-04-13 22:31
Good match by both teams . VP played a really good CT side , didnt expect to get 9 rounds for them . Pistol strat on T was very unique rushing CT spawn and droping the smoke which totally fked TS retake plan . Anyway this lan might be the biggest chance for Poles to achieve something , many teams underperforming and no fnatic at all , NaVi with standin . If not now , then when ?

Win against good team, on other map than de_train. I'm suprised and I'm waiting for the next step. ;) WP VP!

2016-04-13 22:34
byali is key. If byali is fragging, then VP wins. If he is not, then they lose. Also if pasza at least does a good effort and snax awps, neo clutches then VP becomes an unstoppable plow.
2016-04-13 22:35
true that, although in this case I think the map played a big role, we all know how good VP are (well.. were...) on Mirage!
2016-04-13 22:43
that too :p but tbf VP could over-run any team on train/mirage/cache on a good day as I mentioned :p
2016-04-14 00:25
yup yup most definetily agree. I'm a NIP fan but when VP go plow mode it's one of the most entertaining things in CS to watch for me :D
2016-04-14 02:08
occasionally happens, imagine if they were consistent :D VP = probably most inconsistent team after NIP
