FlipSid3 send Immortals home
FlipSid3 Tactics have kept their qualification hopes alive in Katowice after defeating Immortals 16-12 on Train in an elimination match.
The last elimination match in Katowice saw FlipSid3 Tactics and Immortals go head-to-head on Train, with Yegor "markeloff" Markelov showing his intent to redeem himself from his poor display against OpTic with a quad kill in the pistol round.
After losing an eco, Immortals went on a full buy in the third round, a move that paid off and eventually allowed them to take a 3-1 lead. But once FlipSid3 got their economy stabilised the tie swung back in their favour as they strung eight rounds together, forcing the Brazilians to call a timeout.
