Virtus.pro won DreamHack ZOWIE Open Bucharest 2016 and bagged the $50,000 grand prize in two maps over Cloud9. The first, Train, ended 16-9, and would foreshadow the second map, Cobblestone, which ended with the exact same scoreline.

A two-smoke inside execution on the B site of Train by Cloud9, who managed to close out the round in the afterplant kicked the final off. The polish side tied it right back up, however, forcing up and winning the pistol buy round.

With 3-1 up on the board for Virtus.pro, both teams traded rounds but it was the Polish side that would eventually start chaining rounds together eventually finding themselves up 9-2 after the 11th round. While Cloud9 managed to tally up a third, Virtus.pro won the follow-up resetting the American team’s economy.

The terrorist side half was disappointing for Cloud9, as Virtus.pro managed to take a 12-3 lead easily plowing through the North Americans, who tried everything from fast pushes to set pieces to try and break an impenetrable wall set-up by the Poles.

Cloud9 managed to take the CT side pistol, retaking after a plant on B by Virtus.pro. After having planted twice in the first rounds, Virtus.pro tried to put one more nail in the coffin, but Cloud9 managed to hold the inside play, pushing the Poles on another eco and closing the gap to 12-7.

Finally, on the 21st round of the first map, Virtus.pro were able to put a round up on their terrorist side, and it was smooth flying from there. The Polish side then won two rounds in a row, and with 15-8 on the scoreboard the American side’s options on the first map. A big push by Jake "Stewie2K" Yip on B kept Cloud9 alive, but it only pushed back the inevitable as Virtus.pro closed down the map on the following round, 16-9.


The Poles plowed through the first map

Cobblestone started with the North American side winning the pistol round on the terrorist side. A quick pick by Janusz "Snax" Pogorzelski on mid with the desert eagle gave Cloud9 flashbacks from Train, and the Polish side did indeed go on to stop Cloud9’s B push winning the second round.

A 1vs2 clutch by Mike "shroud" Grzesiek on the fifth round put Cloud9 within one round of Virtus.pro, and were then able to tie it up 3-3. From there on out, Cloud9 got in the driver seat and started to run away with the first half of the map, all the way to 7-3 after the 10th round. Finally, however, Virtus.pro willed themselves back in the game picking up three more rounds before ending the half and giving themselves a chance in the second half.


Virtus.pro lift another title in Bucharest

Virtus.pro got right back in the game, tying it 9-9 after winning the pistol and the following two rounds. This would turn out to be the beginning of the end, as the Polish side would once again turn the plow on and glide to victory winning every round on the terrorist side, leaving the final score at 16-9.

2016-09-18 18:48
he said that because he wanted to see how they match up against the top teams. he said dignitas wouldve been an easier match for them
2016-09-18 19:00
Lmao you've been baited for the 2nd time
2016-09-18 19:11
I don't remember the first one and that didn't seem like bait and it's not like i was mad or anything. I thought the same thing as he did until I read the interview so I was just saying that in case he didn't.

2016-09-18 18:53
Why tf remove nothing he is 2nd or 3rd best on his team
2016-09-18 18:55
c9 lost in veto. lul train vs VP good joke.
2016-09-18 18:54
you do realize that train's the best map of Cloud9? if they win on train then on which map they can fight against VP? mirage? cache? or maybe overpass?
2016-09-18 18:56
"train's the best map of Cloud9?" LOL. Fucking RiP.
2016-09-18 18:57
it is I think they were undeafeted on it with this new lineup
2016-09-18 18:58
They played like bots on train. They had no read vs VP whatsoever. Couldn't care less if its their "best map" cus VP are on an entirely different level on train when they show up.

Wp VP, surprised that they had such a consistent performance through the tournament. C9 looked good before the final, shame they dissapointed so much. Skadoodle isn't as good as he used to be. Moments of brilliance and lots of misses and inconsistency in between. Nice that VP can win things without Snax carrying them too.

Tough luck for C9, 2 international lans(3 if you count northren arena) and only stopped by the tournament winning teams, the teams who's game was the best on that point. I think C9 are in really great form now, and they just need to learn from this experience and get better, more consistent.

True if we talk about starladder where NiP had to play Astralis, but in this tournament, VP had to play Gambit and then Heroic... Which is basically the same if not worse than Flipside and Faze.

Actually, now that I think about it, in starladder, C9 had to play first game against envy and second should have been VP, but they lost badly to VG(first time i've seen that team). So the groups were normal, just VP being VP...
