Flash secure last Asia Minor playoffs spot
Flash secured a playoff spot at the Asia Minor by defeating Tainted Minds 2-0 in the group B decider (16-6 Overpass, 16-10 Inferno), booking a match with Renegades.
After they were edged out by TYLOO in the winner's match of group B, Flash were left waiting for their decider match opponent. The elimination series between BOOT-d[S] and Tainted Minds was where their opponent would be found.
That series started on Overpass, the Australian's pick, and after a poor, 0-5 start, Tainted Minds took back control and were in the driving seat throughout the map, which they closed out 16-9. The second map was much tighter, but Anthony "ImpressioN" Lim's team once again wasn't able to capitalize on their strong start and Tainted Minds finished the game 16-13.
Yaman "yam" Ergenekon and co. picked Overpass once again in the series against Flash, but had little success on the map this time around. Andrew "Kaze" Khong and YuLun "Summer" Cai were dominant and the Chinese side secured a 16-6 win on map one.
Inferno followed, Tainted Minds picked up the first two rounds as CT, but QiFang "Karsa" Su and co. had a run of five round wins as soon as the guns rolled in. Finishing the Terrorist half with a 9-6 lead and picking up the CT pistol to boot allowed the Chinese team to easily close out the map 16-10 and the series 2-0.
