Cloud9 eliminate mousesports at the Major
Cloud9 stay alive in Krakow by defeating mousesports 16-11 on Train, eliminating the European side from the tournament.
Cloud9 took the lead early into Train, winning the second round force buy by overwhelming the A site as Terrorists, exploiting mousesports' setup. In the first buy round, Chris "chrisJ" de Jong's side went for A main agression that paid off, but the North American side bounced right back thanks to Tyler "Skadoodle" Latham's 1v2 clutch.
Mike "shroud" Grzesiek and co. were in control of the game early on, with mousesports getting a foothold back in the game only after going 7-3 down thanks to an A site lockdown by Christian "loWel" Garcia Antoran and Tomáš "oskar" Šťastný and a B site retake in which Denis "denis" Howell picked up three.
mousesports tied the score at 7-7 and shut down an intricate execute in the last round of the half to take the lead for the first time since the pistol round.
The Europan side tied the score up at 11-11, but wasn't able to close out a 4v3 on A to take back the lead in round 23. Losing clutches in the following rounds meant that Cloud9 were able to close out the game, winning Train 16-11 to stay alive at the Major and eliminate mousesports.
