Immortals beat GODSENT, to final
Immortals outlasted GODSENT with a 2-1 score to advance to the grand final at DreamHack ZOWIE Open Summer 2016 (16-11 on Cache, 12-16 on Mirage, and 16-8 on Train).
Cache was the first map and Immortals, who picked the map, had a great start, winning the first six rounds of the half. GODSENT got their first round by coming on top of a 3vs5 situation and the Swedes salvaged the half to trail 6-9 at halftime.
The Brazilians picked up the pistol round and the anti-ecos in the second half and were close to win the fourth round but Jonas "Lekr0" Olofsson clutched a 1vs2 for his team to make it 12-7. GODSENT won four more rounds and came one round within the Brazilian team but Henrique "HEN1" Teles & company dominated the last part of the game as they won the map 16-11.
SHOOWTiME secured the first map for his team
Andreas "znajder" Lindberg's team kicked off Mirage on the T-side and grabbed the pistol round despite giving up the first kill. Immortals got the first weapon round after losing the ecos but couldn't put together many rounds, leading to a 10-5 lead in favor of GODSENT in the first half.
Immortals managed to win the pistol round as Gustavo "SHOOWTiME" Gonçalves got a double knife kill and the Brazilians cut the deficit to two after securing the anti-ecos (10-8). GODSENT shut the Brazilian team's offense down after that and secured the map with a 16-12 final score.
znajder was impeccable on Mirage
Train was the map to decide who was going to the grand final and the CT-sided Brazilians won the pistol round without much trouble. An early third round buy came in from GODSENT and it worked but their economy blew up as Immortals replied immediately (3-1).
Immortals started the second half like a team that wanted to go to the grand final as they won the first four rounds of the half. The Brazilians won the map 16-8 and closed out the series 2-1, advancing to the grand final.
