G2 qualify for Major over FlipSid3
G2 have booked their spot at PGL Major Krakow after defeating FlipSid3 16-13 on Nuke.
Alexandre "bodyy" Pianaro paved the way for G2's qualification with a quad-kill to hand his team the Counter-Terrorist pistol. In the first gun round, bodyy added more three kills to his name, propelling the Frenchmen to take control of the match during these early stages.
With Denis "electronic" Sharipov stepping up with four kills in a semi-buy, FlipSid3 were able to respond in the eighth round. The CIS-based team would acquit themselves really well for the rest of the half, winning five of the remaining seven rounds to reduce the gap to 6-9.
Despite G2 finding the entry kill in the pistol round that followed, Georgi "WorldEdit" Yaskin and electronic secured the round with a triple and a double-kill, respectively. Following a single eco round, the French squad picked up their 10th round with a triple-kill from Nathan "NBK-" Schmitt.
From that point, Kenny "kennyS" Schrub and co. did not take their foot off the pedal and easily reached a 14-8 lead. FlipSid3 showed that they were not ready to throw in the towel and won five rounds in a row, but G2 made one final push to close out the map at 16-13 and secure a spot at the Major.
