G2 lock Major spot over Immortals
G2 have advanced to the ELEAGUE Major after clawing back from a 10-14 deficit to defeat Immortals 19-17 on Cache.
G2 kicked off their last match at the qualifier with a successful four-man attack towards A from squeaky, getting up to 3-0 after Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom saved a dangerous 2v4 situation following Immortals' aggression in A main.
The Frenchmen's fake in the first gunround backfired, as they got picked off one by one, and two quad-kills from Lucas "LUCAS1" Teles gave the Brazilians their first lead in the match at 4-3.
G2 equalized the score with a forcebuy victory on the back of ScreaM's triple, although Immortals quickly got back on their feet, winning all of the remaining rounds with a few more impactful plays from LUCAS1.
clutches from bodyy and ScreaM helped G2 climb back from 10-14
Edouard "SmithZz" Dubourdeaux's three kills in the second pistol allowed G2 to begin clawing back. With the first two gunrounds also going their way, they lowered the deficit to 10-11, but Henrique "HEN1" Teles's fantastic 1v2 tipped the scales in Immortals' favor.
Another clutch went G2's way as Alexandre "bodyy" Pianaro won a hard 1v2 on low HP, which turned the economy against Immortals. Cédric "RpK" Guipouy's triple in the next gunround made the score 15-14 after another eco, but doubles from Ricardo "boltz" Prass and João "felps" Vasconcellos sent the match to overtime.
Two big rounds from ScreaM helped G2 secure a three-round half as CT before Immortals got two of their own after switching sides, one of which was thanks to a fantastic quad-kill from HEN1 on B. However, G2 topped a 2v2 situation on A thanks to bodyy's crucial kill and secured the Major spot at 19-17.
