Virtus.pro picked up a win in their first match at the PGL Major Krakow, defeating Vega Squadron 16-2 on Nuke.

Virtus.pro had a good start to the Terrorist side of Nuke and Wiktor "TaZ" Wojtas was the first player from the Polish side to have an impactful play, picking up two entries in the pistol round to allow his team to roll into the B site and secure the pistol round against Vega Squadron.

After cleaning up the two following anti-eco's, [virtus.pro] were in a tight 2v2 situation in the first gun round, but Jarosław "pashaBiceps" Jarząbkowski combined with TaZ well in a B site afterplant, allowing his team to get a 5-0 lead shortly after. After that, the Russian side got on the board with their first round win, but only to get reset by a slow and methodical take of the lower site that worked well for Virtus.pro.

Vega Squadron couldn't shut down Snax

Nikolay "mir" Bityukov and Pavel "hutji" Lashkov combined to get three untraded kills for Vega Squadron in round 12, essentially winning them the round that made the score 10-2. However, Dmitriy "jR" Chervak and co. couldn't tie any rounds together as Janusz "Snax" Pogorzelski and "" plowed through their defenses round after round, ending the Terrorist half 13-2 up.

With a giant lead from the first half, the Poles had a big buffer to close out the match on the CT side, but didn't end up needing it. After shutting down Vega Squadron's pistol round, Virtus.pro closed out the game straight away, making it 16-2 in the end.

Guys, I don't wanna spoil the party, but that's only Vegas though ...
2017-07-16 15:25
obviously but i did expect from VEGA a better fight especially in those aimbattles. they didn't only lose it in tactical way( map veto and tactical way to play the game) they lost it aimwise aswell

2017-07-16 15:34
that is the reason why we might be hyped up :D. VP was tactical since IEM there but they lacked in their wellknown teamplay and confidence in those aimbattles. they've hopefully fixed it up. but now step by step. the next match is going to be match harder obviously

VP won this not only in a tactical way no they've outaimed VEGA. that made me feel really satasfied. obviously idiotic map choose from VEGA to play VP on Nuke! And not only that, they didn't play that aggressive style that you should play vs VP in these days

Big had weeks to prepare for this faze match, but that's not the point, it could also be Gambit or Navi. They would still be considered an easier draw than Astralis or SK
