Virtus.pro qualify for EPL Season 4
Virtus.pro have triumphed over the new GODSENT lineup 2-0 (16-11 on Cobblestone and 16-12 on Cache) in the ESL Pro League Season 4 Europe Wild Card match and thus have requalified for the Pro League.
Virtus.pro's failure to remain in the Pro League after the Season 3 Relegation match against PENTA made the Polish team the butt of many jokes however VP managed to progress through ESL's community voting experiment and were soon set to face off against GODSENT in the Europe Wild Card match.
While the complete roster overhaul between fnatic and GODSENT broke earlier today and certainly changed the stakes of the match, it was Virtus.pro who managed to grind out their map pick of Cobblestone with a 16-11 score after a close first half gave way to a dominant CT-side performance from the Poles.

GODSENT demonstrated a strong 9-6 T-side on the second map of Cache, with strong play from the new Freddy "KRIMZ" Johansson, Jesper "JW" Wecksell, and Robin "flusha" Rönnquist trio, but Virtus.pro yet again came out the victor after an even better T-side and took the second map 16-12 to qualify for ESL Pro League Season 4.
