Space Soldiers win ASUS ROG Summer

Space Soldiers defeated Epsilon 2-0 (Cache 16-11, Cobblestone 16-5) in the grand final of ASUS ROG Summer 2016 to win their first international LAN title and the $12,000 first-place prize.

At the start of the day Space Soldiers met Millenium in the first semi-final. The Turks went ahead to win two maps that went into double digits, Cobblestone and Dust2, to become the first finalists.

The other semi-final saw ENCE and Epsilon fight tooth and nail on three close maps. The Finns kicked Nuke off with a dominant Terrorist side, grabbing a 12-3 lead, but the Swedish T side was one round better for a 16-14 win.


ngiN's Space Soldiers win their first international offline title

Dust2 followed and despite Fredrik "REZ" Sterner continuing with a great performance ENCE edged their opponents in a double-overtime battle at 22-20. The series was decided on Cobblestone where Aleksi "allu" Jalli shone, but so did Jerry "xelos" Råberg as his team advanced to the grand final at 16-12.

Space Soldiers then took on the Swedes on Cache, which they came out on top of with eight rounds on each side. On their own pick, Cobblestone, they put in an 11-round CT side and quickly closed it out as Terrorists to grab their first ever international LAN title at 16-5.

'I dont know which' please read
2016-08-07 13:13
If clearly is not sweden,then must be someone else..so pls , tell me your opinion who might be.
2016-08-07 15:32
It is Sweden, he's just a dumb faggot. Sweden has two teams in the top 10, which is only rivalled by France. However, the difference is that Sweden's teams are #2 and #6, while France's teams are #3 and #10. The other country that could maybe compete with Sweden and France is Brazil, who have teams at #1 and #12 (so in terms of a scene, kind of on par with France, seeing as one of the teams is two spots higher, and the other team is two spots lower). There's no clear best scene anymore, though. Sweden used to dominate CS: GO through two eras (the NiP and Fnatic eras), but now the ONLY team that seems to have very consistent results is SK. Everybody else - especially Fnatic - has dips in performance all over the place.

LOL For me, tier 1 are the teams capable of winning big lans (SK, fnatic, Na'Vi, G2, Virtus.pro and NiP). If you are able to beat tier 1 teams, but you're never on the fight for the titles, you're tier 2. If you're not able to beat tier 1 teams, but you can beat tier 2, then you're tier 3.

Anyone ever wonder if Erdogan is going to let the gaming community thrive in Turkey? There's a few studios, and I guess 1 eSport thing with SS? Gaming community is always very progressive and scientific, basically the direct opposite of Islam.
