Luminosity outlived NiP in the opening match of ECS Season 1 Finals as they beat the Swedes 16-12 on Train.
The first match at the ECS Season 1 Finals was between two top five teams Ninjas in Pyjamas and Luminosity. The Swedes starting on the CT-side secured the pistol round as they almost lost a 5vs2 but recovered. Ninjas in Pyjamas grabbed the second round by losing three players and also managed to secure the third.
Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo's double entry kill allowed Luminosity to take the first weapon round and Epitacio "TACO" de Melo repeated what FalleN did in the previous round as the Brazilians took their second round. Luminosity took charge in the first half and led 9-6 as TACO was the most impactful player of the half.
FalleN's AWP reigned supreme in the second half.
The Ninjas were able to grab the second half pistol round as well and survived a scare in the second round as Lincoln "fnx" Lau got two opening kills (9-8). Triple entry by Jacob "pyth" Mourujärvi in the first weapon round of the second half gave the lead to Ninjas in Pyjamas.
The Brazilian team had a clean round win to trail 10-12 and then went on to lead to game (13-12). Luminosity closed it out with a 16-12 score and started the tournament with a win.
