Vega Squadron edge CLG on Mirage

Vega Squadron defeated CLG 16-14 on Mirage in their first match at the ELEAGUE Major Main Qualifier.

At the beginning of Mirage between CLG and Vega Squadron, the two teams were even at 3-3 following the Americans' pistol round win while the Russian side got the first two gunrounds and an anti-eco on the defense.

The next two rounds were exchanged, as Kenneth "koosta" Suen stepped up with a quad-kill with the AWP, while Dmitriy "jR" Chervak and Nikolay "mir" Bityukov defended B with each player getting a double.

Thanks to an eco round victory, in which Yassine "Subroza" Taoufik got a double with a stolen AWP, CLG began running away with the half with koosta getting a triple on their way to 8-4. However, the last three rounds went the way of Vega Squadron, who then also clinched the second pistol round to get their first lead in the match.


mir led the way as Vega Squadron defeated CLG

Leonid "chopper" Vishnyakov and company snatched away the first gunround as well despite Subroza getting two opening kills, but four more kills from the 19-year-old over the next two rounds, one of which was a forcebuy, equalized the score at 11-11.

mir continued to play well and clutched a 1v2, while James "hazed" Cobb got four quick kills in the next round, which sent Vega Squadron on a double eco. With a couple of attacks towards A, the Russians managed to reach match point and finished the map off at 16-14.

2016-12-15 20:40
why don't you like sadokist? he's probably the best play-to-play caster in the talent scene right now imo
2016-12-15 20:42
he feels too repetitie anwaytoo enthusiastic when he is not. i dont like his approach.he is a good caster tho. just dont enjoy his style.
2016-12-15 20:45

R Lewis was a semi pro / pro in cod4. Not the same game but he does have experience of playing at the high end of a game.
2016-12-16 11:55
ynk was a pro too i think
2016-12-15 22:33
he definitely was, probably the one with most experience from that bunch together with henryg
2016-12-15 22:47
ye i think he said that he played with Niko in the team for some time
2016-12-15 22:49

So you just contradicted yourself then, he clearly does play csgo... He said on by the numbers i think that he was LEM/SMFC, it was something with RL.
2016-12-16 22:19
I agree with you on him being annoying on desks of late always trying to be edgy, I think with whatever social issues/disorder he has it always comes off as awkward. When he's being more of a serious analyst he's OK. But you are wrong he does at least play matchmaking, he's talked about it in many of his videos.

2016-12-15 20:35
This was a tough game for both teams even though they are both around Tier 4 - I believed that CLG would beat this CIS squad considering they were legends from columbus at the start of this year but you also have to take into consideration that CLG has gone to shit ever since they lost their best two players, in my opinion, tarik and jdm64. Please disband

score is actually deceiving, and CLG won almost no gun rounds, if Vega didn't throw 3 anti ecos with hard resets of economy, this would be like a 16-8 and hope chopper will show up later this tournament
