Kinguin win ESL Polish Championship

After beating AGO 2-1 in the grand final (19-22 on Overpass, 16-4 on Cobblestone and 16-12 on Mirage), Kinguin have won the ESL Polish Championship.

The LAN stage of the ESL Polish Championship, a league featuring eight teams and over $16,000 in cash prizes, began with AGO easing past ex-Pompa Black on just two maps, with Dominik "GruBy" Swiderski's team conceding just nine rounds throughout the series.

In the other semi-final match, PRIDE, who attended the event with PENTA player Paweł "innocent" Mocek as a stand-in, put up a great fight against Kinguin but ended up losing the series after Bartosz "Hyper" Wolny's men completed a reverse sweep. 

MICHU boasted a total of 102 kills throughout the series

The grand final kicked off on AGO's map pick, Overpass, with GruBy and co. prevailing in overtime. However, Kinguin turned the series around after crushing their opponents on Cobblestone and picking up a close win on Mirage. Michał "MICHU" Müller was the man of the match as he averaged a 1.70 Rating, finishing the series with 102 kills.

Honestly -Taz +Michu. Just look at Taz matches. 99% red rating. Neo still has something in him, IGL especially. Taz is just a cocky washed up player.
2017-09-17 16:55
true taz needs to go and michu would be a good replacement. if there was another good player on kinguin id replace neo but none of them besides michu have ever really impressed me

I keep Neo just for the IGL role. I can't see Snax doing IGL anymore, especially after New York. 8 kills on Mirage, a map he used to get 20 bombs normally.
2017-09-17 16:57
u didnt see snax last words? neo is tiried of being a IGL. Its not a first time when He lost motivation to have this role in team. If not him then Taz. Right now is Snax but everyone knew how they are bad right now.

Learn English. Snax said that Neo was tired of igl after SLTV tournament. Which was 6 months ago. So Neo will be igl again because Snax is changing roles.

MICHU is such a beast. If he'd play against teams such as SK, FaZe, Astralis, etc. he would easily stomp them. It's because of him Kinguin have won countless of international tournaments.

VP +Michu already, i'd lean towards retiring NEO and get TaZ to IGL. Neo has been awful for a while now, he still has impact frags and occasional clutches but generally bottom frags. Give TaZ another 6 months max to reinvigorate the roster or cut his ass too.
