MK win ESEA S22 Global Challenge

MK have defeated Crowns in ESEA Season 22 Global Challenge's grand final 2-0 (Cobblestone 16-13, Inferno 16-8).

Cobblestone kicked off the grand final between MK and the tournament's surprise Crowns. David "Jayzwalkingz" Kempner provided three headshots in the pistol as CT, helping the Swedes gain a 3-0 lead. 

The Bulgarians replied with the first gunround, but their economy got reset immediately and Crowns ran with it for the next five rounds until it was 8-1 as they won all clutch situations despite a heroic 1v4 attempt by Kamen "bubble" Kostadinov. From there on out MK got a hold of the half except for one round where they lost another 1v1, taking it to a 6-9 scoreline.

Crowns won the following pistol, but Nikolay "nkl" Krastev stopped them in their tracks with three kills in the forcebuy afterwards and MK slowly crawled their way back into the match until it was 12-11 in favor of the Swedes.


Mortal Kombat are the champions of ESEA Season 22 Global Challenge

Jayzwalkingz and Fredrik "Krewmer" Svensson turned a 2v5 situation around for the 13th round, but it didn't startle Simeon "dream3r" Ganev and company who won all five remaining for a 16-13 victory on map one.

The beginning of map two, Inferno, was a back-and-forth battle at the start, as both teams kept winning forcebuys until it was 2-2. After a lengthy pause due to technical issues, MK took over and took six of the next seven rounds for 8-3. The two continued to trade blows and took two rounds each for a 10-5 score in favor of Emiliyan "spyleadeR" Dimitrov and company.

After the second pistol round went the Swedes' way, Mortal Kombat once again won the following forcebuy and ran away with the match, grabbing the title at 16-8 and $18,000 that goes along with it.

mk is a really good T2 team, if they play seriously. but they are rarely given chances to play at the real BIG lans (due to VAC ban I guess).

2016-08-28 22:32
"Yes rules tier 3 tournaments lmao." Isn't that more irrelevant? You tried to insult there or idk... probably, but still nice try. I'm saying the truth here, nothing else. :)
2016-08-28 22:33
Insult lmao where at. I just found his comment to be a hyperbole. Then outta no where you got offended then comment about NA scene which had nothing to do about what I said.
2016-08-29 00:52
how is that irrelevant, if u are going to insult other scenes, make sure ur scene is doing good, fucking spastic

First of all Bubble has the same amount of kills and if you watch carefully both games you will see that despite the fact that NKL is bottom fragging he had as much impact as Bubble and Dream3r ... 2nd they qualified for the tournament as N1 playing with niki1 because dream3r wasn't able to play . but yuh butthurt people
