OpTic and mouz pick up overtime wins

As the matches go on in Dallas, mousesports and OpTic picked up wins against Natus Vincere and NRG in group B.

Natus Vincere have been having rough times when facing mousesports recently, and the start to this game on Cobblestone was no different. After losing two rounds, the CIS side went for a Famas force buy in the third round. Ioann "Edward" Sukhariev and co. won the round, but losing the following one meant that their economy was fully reset.

Tomáš "oskar" Šťastný pulled off a 1v3 Tec-9 clutch on B that made it 6-3 and that was another breaking point in the first half. The European mixture continued with the momentum they built early on, as Denis "denis" Howell and Robin "ropz" Kool plowed through Natus Vincere to end the first half 12-3 up.

mousesports get another win over Na`Vi

Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács's double kill sealed the pistol round for Natus Vincere and his team started to mount a comeback, getting to nine rounds before slipping to a force buy from mousesports.

ropz and co. got back the momentum back after that, but couldn't close out the game before overtime—with denis getting the final kill to make the score 19-15.

NRG and OpTic faced off on Cache, with Damian "daps" Steele's side starting on CT. Peter "ptr" Gurney started off the pistol with a P2000 headshot, but OpTic made their way back into the round and William "RUSH" Wierzba clutched the 1v1 in the end. That round set up the tone for the first half, as OpTic were continually clutching our rounds, irregardless of how the first duel in the round wen.

OpTic's biggest point of focus was the B site, where they often finished off their attacks and successfully held off retakes.

After a 10-5 Terrorist half, OpTic were struggling to cope with the execute-heavy style of NRG, with ptr and co taking over the A site repeatedly. After tieing up the score at 11-11, NRG were caught off guard by an A main push and things fell apart as RUSH picked up three to get OpTic a second CT round on the board.

NRG bounced straight back and continued with their game plan, but another anti-eco loss and a lost 2v1 situation at 15-13 meant that OpTic would get the tie and continue the match into overtime.

In the added rounds, OpTic managed to adapt to NRG's Terrorist side and seal the deal with a B fakeout that made it 19-16.
