North move past PENTA in Krakow

MIRAA
July 17th, 2017 11:50

North have picked up their first victory at PGL Major Krakow after defeating PENTA 16-9 on Mirage.

The first match of the day in Krakow saw PENTA get out to a quick 5-0 lead thanks to Jesse "zehN" Linjala winning two 1v2 situations, in the pistol round and in the first full gun round.

North then held PENTA off for the first time with a perfect B retake, but the European mixture hit back immediately following yet another 1v2 won by zehN after Kevin "HS" Tarn had opened up the A site with three frags.

North came back from a 7-1 deficit to win the match

Down 7-1, North tightened up their defense and constantly kept the PENTA offense in check. Until the end the half, only one round went PENTA's way, but Kevin "kRYSTAL" Amend's men still took some joy from the fact that they had won the half, even if by the slightest of margins.

Now playing on the Terrorist side, North got off to a fantastic start, winning six rounds in a row to put PENTA in danger of getting blown out. After losing a 4v2 situation, the European mixture went for a desperate aggressive play, which earned them a round, but the Danish team hit back in the next round. With their economy in a dire situation, PENTA were helpless to prevent North from running away with the lead.

Magisk needs to wake up if North is to have the slightest chance... And now that we are at it, lets get Rubino back!!! North w. Rubino >> North wo. Rubino :D
2017-07-17 14:38
Rubino is trash
2017-07-17 17:38
If they drop Aizy and pick up Rubino they'd be a lot better right now, since FaZe Aizy has been shit, actually he's been shit for like 2 years now and ruined this North team big time.
2017-07-17 18:59
Rubino aint trash?! He is stable and played more calm and fearless, and North was more competitive when he was on the team??? How is that trash??? :D :D :D
