G2 edge past Immortals after OT in their opener

G2 beat Immortals in the first round of the Main Qualifier for the PGL Major in Krakow after two intense overtimes, 22-20, on Inferno.

The match started with G2 running around to B from mid on the attacking side, but were denied a plant as the Immortals players took the whole French team out. G2 force bought two rounds in a row, and the second time around it worked out, as the French side were able to bring it back to 2-2.

The match quickly became a brawl, as the teams involved started trading rounds. Quickly, though, Immortals were on the losing end of that bargain, as their economy started dwindling and G2 took the reins of the first half. By the time the teams switched sides, the French were ahead 11-4.

shox & co. had to sweat to beat Immortals

The Brazilian team won the second pistol round, and closed the gap with G2 winning the two anti-ecos. Immortals didn’t give a single round up after six, bringing the match within one, 10-11. Then doubles by Dan "apEX" Madesclaire and Alexandre "bodyy" Pianaro holding B kept the French team in the lead. Once again, the teams went back and forth, this time at the tail end of regulation time, with 13-13 on the board after 26 rounds.

For the first time since the third round, Immortals got in the lead thanks to their ability to find holes in G2’s defense. The match eventually went into overtime, and G2 got the early lead on the CT side, 17-16, but were then unable to close it in the second half, as Immortals sent the match into a second OT.

G2 once again got the lead, starting on the attacking side, 20-19 before the half. This time around, though, G2 were able to win two rounds on defense to close it, 22-20.

Immortals should have win this tbh. They played inferno which is not really a solid map for g2. Also these guys play early in the morning and french players tend to start real slow. Still good game to both teams.
2017-06-29 10:49
immortals threw this game losing that 5v3 and especially 4v2

They played those rounds badly, but g2 played those rounds well. Same could be said to shox who carelessly without any nades peeking wide in banana with an awp facing 3 players. Such a throw round indeed ha?

yes both teams are trash but IMT are more trash
