Cloud9 16-0 Tyloo, on to the finals
Cloud9 stomp Tyloo 16-0 on Dust2 to take the first place in their group and qualify for IEM Oakland.
The winners' match started beautifully for the North American team, as they controlled the flow of the game from the Terrorist side—winning the first seven rounds in the row. TYLOO tried to break their momentum with an early tactical pause, but with no avail as Cloud9 continued to dominate all over the map.
After losing men and sites early in rounds, the Chinese side tried to go for saves but were unable to even do that as the hunts were successful from Jordan "n0thing" Gilbert and co.
Cloud9 were taking no hostages on Dust2
14-0 down, TYLOO managed to get into a decent situation as they evenly traded kills, but were uncoordinated on the A site hold in the end, allowing Timothy "autimatic" Ta and co. to easily take the round for a perfect 15-0 half.
Hui "DD" Wu managed two kills on the pistol round with his team getting the plant on the A site, but TYLOO wasn't able to hold off the retake as autimatic showed up with three kills coming from long to close out the match with a 16-0 scoreline.
With this result, Cloud9 qualified for the iBUYPOWER Masters grand final and secured a spot at IEM Oakland later this month.
