dignitas eliminated FlipSid3 at DreamHack ZOWIE Open Bucharest with a 2-1 scoreline (16-7 on Train, 9-16 on Cobblestone, and 16-6 on Mirage).

Kristian "k0nfig" Wienecke left his mark in the pistol round by getting a quad kill as his team went on to win the anti-ecos (3-0). Although FlipSid3 managed to pick up the weapon round after Jan "wayLander" Rahkonen's entry kill they lost the following one.
Dignitas' early lead melted away as FlipSid3 tied it at 5-5 with Andrey "B1ad3" Gorodenskiy's quad kill and took the lead after Georgi "WorldEdit" Yaskin's quad. Dignitas closed out the half with a four round streak, leading 9-6 at halftime.
k0nfig was on fire in the first map
B1ad3 opened Cobblestone, which his team started as the Terrorists, with a 1vs2 clutch and FlipSid3 extended their lead to 4-0 after winning the first weapon round. Dignitas didn't let FlipSid3 get away and tied the game at 5-5. Just when it seemed like the Ukrainians were running away with it, Dignitas won an eco round and trailed 7-8 at halftime.
Although k0nfig won the second half pistol round thanks to k0nfig's 1vs2 clutch, FlipSid3 won the eco to start a five round streak (13-8). A triple kill by wayLander was enough to put an end to the map which FlipSid3 won 16-9.
