PENTA see off Vega Squadron in Krakow

PENTA have eliminated Vega Squadron at the PGL Krakow Major 2017 after beating the CIS team 16-14 on Mirage.

Mirage was the battleground between Vega Squadron and PENTA who fought for their tournament lives after both of the squads lost their first two matches in the Swiss stage. The T-sided PENTA planted the bomb on the A-site in the pistol round but Vega Squadron were able to retake (1-0).

Vega Squadron couldn't defend the A-site in the seventh round after winning six in a row (6-1). However, PENTA couldn't start a streak and the CIS team went on to win the first half 11-4.

PENTA picked up their first victory

Even though they lost the first three rounds in the second half, Vega Squadron won the first weapon round (12-7). After taking two more rounds and extending their lead to 14-7, the CIS team lost seven in a row as PENTA tied the game at 14-14 with a great defensive comeback effort.

PENTA eventually closed out the game 16-14 and secured their first win in Krakow. Vega Squadron, on the other hand, have ended their Major campaign with a 0-3 record.

I already know I failed one because I don't have neither Gambit or VP going through and FaZe aren't looking like they can do it but maybe silver medal
2017-07-18 12:12
You can get gold without even doing groups

Not really, man. They played so stupid. They tried this PUG shock and awe strategy of running at their opponents whenever they could. As soon as the other team caught on, they lost the map.

INNOCENT WAS THE PROBLEM?
2017-07-18 12:07
For HS --- just release him, he will be a good breaker, like Karrigan and APEX. For Krytal --- forget about personal kda, just play more team work. For Zyhn --- no need change, he is the key player of the team. stable and worth trust. For whole team, such a young team, and play so good. play more tactic, and get out of nerverous, they will be better. dont forget Cajunb's first major show in cologen 2015, definitely top 5 worst players, but now?

yea I'm not a fan of the Swiss format as well.... any team can win a BO1 against a T1 team in reality depending on the map, etc.
2017-07-18 12:33
Thats why this swiss format is better...because any team can win a B01 against a T1 team wtf
