Turkey and France to TWC semi-final

The first two semi-finalists of TWC 2016 have been found after Turkey and France managed swift wins over Tunisia and Canada respectively.

The first quarter final match of the day was the one between Turkey and Tunisia, the first and last placed team of the group stage. Barring a solid start from the Tunisians, the difference in the standing was more than obvious in the game itself.

Over the two maps, Buğra "Calyx" Arkın and Ismailcan "XANTARES" Dörtkardeş plowed through their opponents while Engin "MAJ3R" Küpeli excelled as well, especially in the crucial rounds.

Ultimately, Turkey won 16-4 on Train and 16-2 on Cache to secure a spot in the semis.

Canada and France were next to step up to the stage at the Kombank Arena, and started the series with Dust 2, Team France's pick. Canada was in the lead for the most of the map though, but faltered in the end and allowed France to get a narrow 16-13 win.


Kio was a beast on Cache 

On the second map, Cache, France opened up strong as CT's and were getting round after round, including a number of retake and clutch situations. 

14-0 down, Canada managed to get into another after-plant situation but failed to hold off Fabien "kioShiMa" Fiey once again - who added insult to injury by clutching out the 1v2 with a Negev.
