FlipSid3 come back on Train; eliminate PENTA
FlipSid3 take down PENTA, eliminating the European mixture from the Major, with a 16-13 win on Train.
Despite a vintage FlipSid3 late-round execute working out for the CIS team in the first gun round and Andrey "B1ad3" Gorodenskiy's team getting three rounds in after that, the first part of the half went in favor of PENTA, who picked up the pistol and a force buy to go 5-3 up.
The rounds kept rolling in for PENTA, as Kevin "HS" Tarn and Jesse "zehN" Linjala were able to shut down FlipSid3's late round executes with aggressive plays towards A main and B halls. PENTA's perfect CT side defense continued, with a great quad kill from zehN shutting down Yegor "markeloff" Markelov and co. as they tried to go into the site somewhat earlier than usual.
PENTA secured the pistol round by overwhelming the B site, but the same tactic didn't pan out for the European mixture in the following one as Jan "wayLander" Rahkonen locked down the site with an ace on the force-buy. wayLander was the instigator of FlipSid3's second half comeback, as he was able to pick up multiple frags in quick succession, securing his team key rounds.
In round 25, Kevin "kRYSTAL" Amend and HS turned a 2v4 situation in a 1v2, but Denis "electronic" Sharipov resolved the situation with a single spray of AK47 to make the score 13-12. The following rounds came close, but markeloff and co. were able to lock down the remaining rounds to win the game 16-13
