Tempo Storm secure main qual. spot

Tempo Storm have defeated TSM 2-0 (Dust2 16-6, Cobblestone 16-14) in the consolidation final of MLG Americas Minor, which secured them a spot at the ESL One Cologne Main Qualifier, taking place on June 9-12 in Katowice.

The series for the second spot from the Americas Minor and overall the last one for ESL One Cologne's Main Qualifier started on TSM's pick, Dust2. 

It was Tempo Storm who started off the better though, as they built up their economy by winning the first three rounds quite comfortably on the back of Ricardo "boltz" Prass's three kills in the CT pistol round.

The number two team in Brazil kept racking up rounds as all of their players were going off in several gunrounds, especially Lucas "LUCAS1" Teles who got two triples on the way to a dominating 9-0 lead. 

TSM got their very first opening kill in the tenth round and managed to capitalize on it with two rounds as Null element got three kills. The remaining four rounds were split two to two after another triple from boltz and Tempo's unsuccessful aggression in upper dark.


hen1 and boltz played an amazing series

The game of triples continued as Hunter "SicK" Mims started off the second pistol with another one from B platform, but boltz found a reply with one of his own, including a 1v2 clutch. At that point map one was nearly over, and while TSM found their way to two more rounds, they were traded for two on the side of Brazil, who won map one at 16-6.

Cobblestone started with OpTic performing a clean retake for an early 2-0 lead, but three kills from João "felps" Vasconcellos kicked off a four-round streak for his team. The next couple of rounds went back and forth before Tempo Storm took over with five in a row due to individual performances from boltz and Henrique "HEN1" Teles for a 10-5 half.

TSM barely survived the pistol round, and that time around they were the ones to win clutches on the Terrorist side, starting with one from SicK in the 12th round. Kory "SEMPHIS" Friesen then followed it up with a 1v2 in the first gunround, and the North American side soon took the lead back at 11-10.

After boltz and felps combined for five, TSM were quick in breaking their opposition's economy and took it to 13-11. Despite TSM getting one round away from match point just after boltz found his way to four kills, Tempo Storm were the ones to close it down at 16-14, all thanks to HEN1's monstrous performance in the last four rounds. 13 kills from him in those four rounds as well as two 1v2's single-handedly secured his team the grand final and a place at the ESL One Cologne Main Qualifier.
