Immortals take down nV in Atlanta
Immortals have taken down EnVyUs in the first round of the ELEAGUE Major Qualifier, 16-11 on Cobblestone.
The battle on Cobblestone first went the way of the French as they won the first pistol round on T-side, though Immortals stabilized from the first real buy and in the 5th round Ricardo "boltz" Prass crucially stood tall and defended the A-site with a triple kill, avoiding the reset for his team.
The Brazillians had a 7-3 lead before Envy even got a bomb plant, and they just managed to scrape a round through before getting reset straight away as they threw away a 4v3 advantage by splitting up and losing individual duels. The half ended with a huge 11-4 lead for Immortals on CT side.
boltz truly was the king of the castle
Vincent "Happy" Schopenhauer's squad managed to get also secure the second pistol round, avoiding the initial nightmare scenario on the normally unfavoured CT-side, but the Frenchmen lost one too many players on the anti-eco rounds so that they were broke straight after Lucas "steel" Lopes and co. picked up the first rifle round.
13-7 lead for Immortals, but the former Major champions pulled back a string of rounds of the back of a half-buy and Dan "apEX" Madesclaire stepping up in a massive way with an ace from drop on to the B-site which had otherwise been lost. The french was not down and out just yet.
Henrique "HEN1" Teles did not want to stand for that, as he pulled through a naked pistol buy and clutched the 1v2, putting his team on 14-11. With no bank to fall back on it was a formality for the Brazilian side to close out the match 16-11.
