Immortals crush Vega Squadron in Krakow

Immortals are now 1-1 at PGL Major Krakow after beating Vega Squadron 16-6 on Train.

Vega Squadron started the match on the right foot by winning a near-flawless Counter-Terrorist pistol round, but could not follow it up as their opponents picked up a force-buy and the next two rounds. Still, the Russians kept pressing and eventually equalised the score tie thanks to a trio of kills from Dmitriy "jR" Chervak in the sixth round.

Immortals then began racking up rounds, forcing their opponents to call a tactical pause when they were already down 9-3. After losing the next round, Vega Squadron won the last two to reduce the deficit to 10-5.

boltz's Immortals have picked up their first win in Krakow

Vito "kNgV-" Giuseppe opened up the second half with a triple-kill to help his team secure a perfect pistol round. At 13-5, the Russian team won a clean gun round, but Immortals would not let the Russians chain any rounds together, and, from that point, controled the pace of the game until they locked down the map with a commanding 16-6 scoreline.

6-16 starting as CT on train, one of most the ct sided maps, and winning the pistol? For you, what is a total crush then?

I agree with that dude, a lot of these rounds were clutches and if vega had these clutches, it would probably been like 16 - 9 or 16- 10

you don`t know history lol... Vega formed in november 2016 so do not underestimate the vega... Why should I cry? CIS CS was always top-1. Remember 2002-2011 M19, MF, Pro100, Na`Vi. Now coach of mousesports it`s russian so shut up
2017-07-17 18:59
Who gives a fuck about cs 1.6, also who cares if Vega was formed in 2016, that does not change the fact that they are trash and a tier 3 team. You guys should be happy that you have a only CIS minor, otherwise these trash CIS teams would never qualify in a EU minor

I can see him moving up to something around HellRaisers level. It will be interesting to see what teams do after seeing young players grow so much and the success NiP has had with REZ and Draken.

And the team is made up of international players already as well. So that's why I was thinking that but I would not be totally shocked to see him replace someone on mouz since LoWel has talked about going to Spain with Mixwell and creating a Spanish team (which would be terrible). The other possible teams are either Gambit (if a team goes after AdreN or Hobbit) or NaVi (if they decide to replace seized or Edward) but only if something absolutely crazy happens.

Hobbit is still under loan from Tengri so if the deal wouldn't work out there's a chance ,yeah. He had already a offer from F3 but he declined (before they picked up electronic)
