SK secure semis spot over dignitas

SK are the last semi-finalists of ECS Season 2 Finals following a 2-1 win over dignitas in Group B's decider (Cache 16-9, Mirage 7-16, Overpass 16-10).

The last match of the day saw SK picking Cache, which they recently reintroduced into their map pool. It was Dignitas who got off to the better start as CT with the pistol and survived the two dangerous rounds afterwards, but SK quickly turned it around with three of their own.

Dignitas won two more rounds in the half, but as they couldn't string them together due to good executes and individual play fromSK their bank was low more often than not. Combined with a pistol round win on the second half, the Brazilian-Portuguese lineup got a massive 13-5 lead.

Mathias "MSL" Lauridsen's team then turned a 3v5 situation on its head and continued to lower the deficit thanks to René "cajunb" Borg winning a 1v2 clutch during an eco. However, after SK gave away two rounds to build up their economy, they closed out the map with Fernando "fer" Alvarenga picking up a quad-kill and Epitacio "TACO" de Melo saving a solid 1v4 attempt from Kristian "k0nfig" Wienecke for 16-9.

On Mirage, Dignitas took control of the CT side right after dropping the first three rounds. Surviving a reasonably close 1v4 attempt from Marcelo "coldzera" David, the Danes quickly equalized the score at 3-3 and continued to hammer on SK with k0nfig single-handedly picking them apart around connector.


coldzera led the way on Cache

An opportunity presented itself in the 12th round, when SK got an advantage on the B bombsite, but Valdemar "valde" Bjørn Vangså clutched the 1v2 as fer couldn't find him while knifing through a smoke which concealed the Dane who was defusing. k0nfig continued to wreak havoc in middle with aggressive plays and Dignitas were in the driving seat with a formidable 12-3 half.

MSL's quad in the second pistol round gave them the 13th round, but SK didn't let go just yet, winning the next three rounds on the back of Ricardo "fox" Pacheco's two opening kills on short. Dignitas then stabilized and soon came out victorious at a comfortable 16-7 scoreline.

Overpass was the decider, where Dignitas got a 3-1 lead early on as CT. SK got their first lead on the map quickly, picking their opponents off one by one and winning a 3v3 afterplant situation on B. The next six rounds kept going back and forth with coldzera puting up seven kills in two of them, which gave SK a 9-6 half.

Connector aggression gave the Brazilians the second pistol round and a 11-6 lead, but Dignitas clawed back to just a one-round deficit after valde's triple, two anti-ecos, and a B execute. coldzera, Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo and TACO then each had their rounds, which sent SK on match point with four rounds in a row. FalleN then got a big read on Dignitas and coldzera put up another triple to finish off the series at 16-10.

Dignitas looked quite good while konfig's god mode lasted. As soon as he cooled down they stopped getting things done. For those that still think that fallen is not the best team captain, take a look on how they improved and adapted in such a fast way. Cold is a bloody beast. No way he doesn't get top 1 this year. #RUNSKG #BORACARALHO

sorry brazilians, this is end of the road for fallen and team. have seen how they acted and the kind of nonsense they spew in public to opponents, fallen - the greatest mistake and support in a csgo team, ever and no i dont think he is a good leader. hes a good manipulator and rat though and i dont like rats

At that age you either stay the same or decline.

this is not soccer lol, u can improve even if ur 50 u just need to practice and practice and ofc want to learn.
2016-12-11 11:17
i mean if he is playing +10 years he has hit hes peak at one point, my point was that it is unlikely to get better after 10 y of play becouse you already know your limits.

The danish were asleep, that's why SK won LUL! JK! Eh, I believe that by playing CACHE, dignitas didn't expect to face this new line trying something new, after they lost on the groups stage. Nice to see fox coming along and getting used with the rest of the guys. Hopefully they can be consistent and this tourny is a great practice to the incoming major! Best of luck to everyone!
