BIG have secured the last spot at the PGL Major's Main Qualifier after decimating EnVyUs 2-0 (Cobblestone 16-4, Overpass 16-6) in the Europe Minor's lower bracket final.
Kevin "keev" Bartholomäus kicked off the match for the last spot at the Main Qualifier with a quad-kill in the pistol round, with BIG starting on the CT side of Cobblestone. After Cédric "RpK" Guipouy and Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom each put up two entries in the following two rounds, the score was soon equal at 3-3.
From there on, the half was firmly in the hands of the German squad, whose keev proceeded to get another highlight reel with an ace on A long, and BIG eventually conceded only one more round for a dominant 11-4 half.
Fatih "gob b" Dayik and company once again took little to finish things off, picking the Frenchmen apart in the second pistol round and surviving the following forcebuy by the skin of their teeth. Vincent "Happy" Schopenhauer's squad clinched two rounds up against match point, but that was all she wrote as BIG closed the series with a 3v3 retake at 16-6.
