Renegades eliminate ViCi

Renegades have eliminated ViCi from IEM Sydney following a 16-5 win on Cobblestone at the start of day two.

The first match of day three began with Nemanja "nexa" Isaković's triple, which secured Renegades the pistol round as CT, before WeiJie "zhokiNg" Zhong's 1v2 in the following forcebuy made it 3-1 in favor of the Chinese.

The next two rounds were split between the teams, but from there on, the Australians took hold of the remainder of the half with Karlo "USTILO" Pivac and Noah "Nifty" Francis playing key parts, putting up several doubles including a 1v2 from the latter in the 10th round.


USTILO led the way to Renegades' first victory in their home country

That allowed Renegades to get up to 8-4 and eventually close out the half with an 11-4 scoreline after Aaron "AZR" Ward gave his team another 1v2 clutch.

USTILO continued to lead his pack in the second half with a quad-kill in the pistol round and a triple in the first gunround, as Renegades clinched match point and shortly after the match at 16-5.

Dude Ustilo showed up and it's great to see but im questioning jks he really is struggling but overall strong performance.

Not that this game proves anything but... I always felt that ustilo has been very underrated. I think the australian scene could have a really good team if they got their shit together 100%

when jks performs like this, as he usually does on LAN, Renegades are no threat to tier 1-2 at all
