HR complete ELEAGUE Major list
HellRaisers edged Cloud9 16-13 on Overpass to complete the ELEAGUE Major team list.
HellRaisers found themselves at a 2-0 lead following a retake on the B bombsite in the pistol round. Cloud9 replied with two of their own due to Tyler "Skadoodle" Latham winning a 1v1 after he and his team ran into a stack against a solid forcebuy.
With HellRaisers shutting down two attacks and Skadoodle putting up five kills in a 2v3 and a 2v2, Cloud9 were ahead 6-5. They then exploited HR's passive setup on B and turned around a 3v5 situation in bathrooms, securing a good 9-6 half on the offense.
HellRaisers qualify for the Major in their third attempt after Columbus and Cologne
Kirill "ANGE1" Karasiow's team added the second pistol to their name and chose the correct bombsite to attack in the following anti-forcebuy as all ten players stayed alive. A 1v1 clutch from Martin "STYKO" Styk in the first full buy on both teams sent HellRaisers on a 11-9 lead and Vladyslav "bondik" Nechyporchuk's triple in a 2v3 extended it to 13-9.
HellRaisers then switched things up and opted for an A attack to break their opponents' four-round streak. Good rotation gave them match point as Cloud9 had to save two weapons and Patrik "Zero" Žúdel put up a quad-kill and a 1v1 in the last round for a 16-13 win and a spot at the Major.
