EnVyUs defeat OpTic, top group B
EnVyUs defeated OpTic 16-8 on Nuke to take the first spot in Group B and qualify for the playoffs.
The North American team followed it up with another gun round win, forcing the Frenchmen to eco. However, their troops were picked off one by one in the following round as Envy made the most out of OpTic's reckless secret stairs push.
After missing the opportunity to put the pressure on the Counter-Terrorists, Tarik "tarik" Celik and co. looked a bit deflated as they were able to get kills, but weren't able to close out rounds, failing to deal with Envy' good coordination.
NBK had a vintage performance against OpTic
The Spaniard showed up again on the pistol round, picking up four kills to shut down the B site push, allowing OpTic to claw back to a 12-6 score.
The North Americans were looking good to get even closer to equalizing the score as they were in a 4v2 after-plant situation on B, but Kenny "kennyS" Schrub and Dan "apEX" Madesclaire combined beautifully to make it 13-7 for their team.
Despite a small scare towards the end, Envy kept their composure, closed out the match 16-8 and secured the top spot in their group.
