SK ease past Virtus.pro

SK Gaming have maintained their undefeated record at the SL i-League StarSeries Season 3 finals after easing past Virtus.pro 16-2 on Mirage.

The match began with SK Gaming's successful A execute, with Fernando "fer" Alvarenga bagging a trio of kills. The corresponding anti-ecos went SK's way without too much trouble, and they followed it up with the first gun round to further increase their lead and leave Virtus.pro's players with no money in the bank.

With Virtus.pro struggling to keep up with SK's pace, the Brazilians continued to exert their dominance and eventually hit double digits. Virtus.pro then finally managed to take a round, courtesy of a double spraydown from Filip "NEO" Kubski, but SK did not allow their opponents to gain any momentum and won the final four rounds to take a shocking 14-1 lead.


SK were far too hot for Virtus.pro to handle 

The Polish team won the pistol round as Terrorist with an A push thanks to a trio of Janusz "Snax" Pogorzelski kills, but their hopes would soon be crushed as SK hit back on a force-buy before locking down the map.

PotM: In such a one-sided match, it was João "felps" Vasconcellos who shone the most, especially during the early stages of the game. He also led with six opening kills.

no. kill one player against four would make no difference just his place would be spotted. He was right in his action. when he saw he couldnt hide he struggle, cause he knew the round was already over. Taz is a great player.

He panics, but you aren't defending that. You said he was the worst player. Don't say that. he is incredible. Tell this opinion of yours on his face if you are a real man. Don't hide in internet. Online is easy. Take care of your talks. One day you will eat your tongue.

Do not try to give excuses to fallen's terrible awp form. Sacrifice himself in a strategical way has nothing to do with missing a lot of easy shots. FalleN today isnt even in the top 10 awpers.
2017-04-06 05:22
you missed something. awp skills is more relevant on CT side. the game was just T side. Considering this, it was a good game for Fallen, cause he had Greats entry kills.

If you watched the game SK lost a round cause he missed an easy shot in a 2v2 situation. And I'm not talking about only this match. He's been struggling as an awper since the january major.
2017-04-06 05:32
it was a pistol dude. and he was far from the players. wasnt so easy. And one moment cant deny that he is the guy that create Sk's strats. So he is essencial for the team. And a great awper.
2017-04-06 05:37
Nobody is giving fallen excuses. Do you think that the game has enough bodys to everybody get 20 kills? I don't know what is wrong with the fans. It's 5 enemies per round man, do the math! If felps always gets 2, Cold 1-2, Fer 1-2. How many do you think are left? You can't understand CS if you just look at the numbers. He is missing more shots because he is having less oportunities. More reps = more chances of sucess.
