Virtus.pro ease past MVP Project
Virtus.pro eased past MVP Project in the first round of the Swiss group stage (16-4 on Mirage).
Stacking the B bombsite with three players, Hyun-Pyo "XigN" Lee's squad picked up the first pistol round and survived the following two rounds to go up 3-0 early on.
From there on, it was the Virtus.pro show as expected, as the Poles clinched two afterplant situations on the A bombsite to even the score at 3-3, and NEO's AWP triple pushed the score to 5-3 in their favor.
Virtus.pro power through MVP Project
The remainder of the half went the way of VP comfortably for a 11-4 scoreline and the following pistol round added to their name meant MVP Project's chances of coming back were next to none. Wiktor "TaZ" Wojtas's 1v1 defuse in a smoke gave his team map point and VP closed out the match at 16-4.
PotM: While everyone from Virtus.pro put up great numbers, Jarosław "pashaBiceps" Jarząbkowski's six opening kills as well as consistent contribution (at least one kill in 13 rounds) put him above the rest.
