BIG stun Immortals at Major Qualifier
BIG have gone 2-1 at the Main Qualifier for PGL Major Krakow after defeating Immortals 16-9 on Cache.
The match began with BIG securing the pistol round with an A split that caught Immortals' players by surprise. After winning both anti-ecos, BIG took the first full gun round with a fast A push, setting them up for a 5-0 lead.
Immortals then finally managed to put a halt to BIG's momentum thanks to a trio of AWP kills from Henrique "HEN1" Teles, who stopped the Germans' A split. The Brazilians put a double AWP setup to work in the next two rounds, forcing Fatih "gob b" Dayik to call a tactical pause.
After the short break, BIG brought Immortals' streak to an end with a fast A execution, with Johannes "tabseN" Wodarz getting three kills to his name. That was the start of another great run from the German team, who kept Immortals from stringing rounds together and took a convincing 10-5 half-time lead.
The Brazilian team picked up a much-needed pistol round with a fast B execution, and then they followed that up with three more rounds, bringing the scoreline to 9-10. The situation threatened to spiral out of control for BIG, but Johannes "nex" Maget rescued his team with three Desert Eagle kills in a force-buy round.
That round turned the game on its head as Immortals struggled to break through the Germans' defence from that point. Even without tabseN putting up big numbers, BIG strung six rounds together to seal a convincing 16-9 victory that puts them one victory away from the Major.
