OpTic push past TyLoo
OpTic have defeated TyLoo in their opening duel in the Major Qualifier, 16-9 on Overpass.
The battle on Overpass started out somewhat shaky for both teams as they both lost to inferior buys in the opening, but as OpTic were starting on the T-side they could make the most of that situation after somehow winning a full eco after plant on A in the 3rd round.
The Chinese team was horrifically reset right after pulling back to 2-4 which meant that OpTic could cruise on with two more rounds, but Ke "captainMo" Liu and co. again brawled forward with an armor-pistol buy, scavenging their rifles and avoided the immediate reset.
Once again though, the North-American side caught TYLOO sleeping with another armorless pistol run, stomping into the A-site and Keith "NAF" Markovic closed out the round with a stolen AWP from bank. 7-4 for OpTic and being in a constant poor economic situation made it all but impossible for the Chinese to hold back the Green Wall with limited utility. A rough half for TYLOO as they trailed 5-10.
Through mostly thin, OpTic stuck together amicably.
Tarik "tarik" Celik and his team put forward a commanding pistol setup, going deep in the underpass and took another pistol round, but YuLun "Summer" Cai's placed their faith once more on upgraded pistols, rolling over the A defense and trashed the initial advantage for the ELEAGUE S2 winners.
The Green Wall got rolling again on the first rifle round, and in a make-or-break round for both teams, it was the ever-improving Peter "stanislaw" Jarguz that came out on top in an unlikely 2v4 retake with NAF being his trusty associate and the North Americans were now edging ever closer with a 14-8 lead.
Despite the Chinese squad breaking the low finances of OpTic shortly after, their impatience was then punished in return by, you guessed it, armorless pistols and Oscar "mixwell" Cañellas and the gang could end the map 16-9.
