mousesports beat OpTic, are 2-0
mousesports and OpTic played on Cache, with the European team coming out the victor with a 16 – 10 score line to stay 2 – 0 and thus guaranteeing Liquid’s elimination from the tournament.
OpTic played a fast A push on the pistol round, and were able to plant the bomb. A calm and collected retake by mousesports put the European team ahead. OpTic stole the second round, however, with another fast A push which mousesports were unable to retake after a clumsy attempt.
With 3 – 1 up on the board, OpTic kept pushing that A site and planting the bomb, but this time like in the pistol round, mousesports were able to defuse and bring it within one, 3 – 2. OpTic however kept that A site aggression, not allowing mousesports to get comfortable as the North American side kept running over the European defense until mousesports figured it out and brought the half back round after round.
With mousesports able to read OpTic’s moves, the later part of the half started to become a mountain to climb for the American side, although a sneaky B plant by Keith "NAF" Markovic gave his team the last round of the half, bringing back a little bit of hope at 6 – 9.
mouz prevail over OpTic
After a confusing pistol round, which included four kills by Oscar "mixwell" Cañellas, OpTic looked like they could take control of the half. A successful fast B push on the force by mousesports put a cog in the machine, however, as OpTic’s comeback would be made much harder as they would now have to deal with an unstable economy.
Down 7 – 12, OpTic tried a full rifle buy with minimal utility, but mousesports were able to put the Americans further in the hole. OpTic bought themselves a second life by winning the following round, as mousesports ran straight into the green wall on B.
Despite losing a few more rounds, mousesports were finally able to find their footing and close it out, 16 – 10, to keep their record intact in Sao Paulo.
