HR and VP win in Kiev

HellRaisers and Virtus.pro kicked off the SL i-League Invitational #1 with victories as the former beat SK 2-0 (16-5 on Cache and 16-5 on Overpass) and the latter defeated Worst Players 2-1 (16-5 on Mirage, 17-19 on Cache, 16-13 on Cobblestone).

One of the opening matches was between Virtus.pro and Aleksandr "⁠s1mple⁠" Kostyliev's new team Worst Players. Mirage was a blowout as the Poles, led by Wiktor "⁠TaZ⁠" Wojtas's 1.81 rating, secured map with a 16-5 score.

Cache started out better for the Ukrainians who finished their T-side with a 8-7 lead. They were also able to pick up the first five rounds of their CT-half but Virtus.pro went into plow mode and came back from a 9-14 deficit to take it to overtime as the regulation ended 15-15.


Virtus.pro struggled but were able to close it out

Virtus.pro grabbed the first round of overtime and they were in front 17-16 at the end of the first half in overtime. Things turned around for Worst Players though and they were able to win the map 19-17.

The squads met on Cobblestone to decide the winner of the series and Worst Players had the same lead at halftime as they did on Cache (8-7). Although they had a better  start to the half, the Ukrainians could not retain their lead and Virtus.pro secured the map with a 16-13 score, winning the series 2-1.

The #12 team in the world, HellRaisers, faced SK who are number #19, in a best-of-three series. The maps for the match in Kiev were Cache, Overpass and Mirage.

The first map, Cache, kicked off with a dominating performance by HellRaisers as Martin "⁠STYKO⁠" Styk dominated the match. A 13-2 CT-side assured a map victory for Kirill "⁠ANGE1⁠" Karasiow & company and they capitalized on this advantage by taking the map 16-5.


oskar was unstoppable

The story of the second map was no different as Tomáš "⁠oskar⁠" Šťastný went berserk, finishing with a 29:8 score, a 123.2 ADR and a 2.21 rating. The final score on Overpass was the same as the first map as HellRaisers won it 16-5 and closed out the series 2-0.

STYKO insane performance people give him some profit for what he is doing for HR. Oskar plays very good, but when STYKO is on fire, then they win. 120 ADR over 2 maps with rifle, as one of first man on T sides...

didnt mentioned that STYKO is the one who is dropping weapons to oskar so he had to often play with tec-9. Also dropping tec9 to raidboss oskar on pistol rounds so he has to play it without armor :). Amazing player yeah

More like WP played kind of aggro and YOLO, VP cought offguard. Also gave too much space for s1mple, not checking corners, then even worst player can kill. Fix and s1mple are people to watch for them, it relies on them heavily
