Vega Squadron have beaten Renegades 16-14 on Mirage at the ELEAGUE Major Main Qualifier.

The first match at the ELEAGUE Major 2018 Main Qualifier was between Vega Squadron and Renegades who squared off on Mirage. The Russian team started on the CT-side and won the first two rounds.

Renegades' early weapon buy in the third round worked out for the Australians who got their first round (2-1). Even though Renegades took the lead, Vega Squadron's respond was swift as they tied the game at 3-3.

Vega Squadron started with a win

Dmitriy "jR" Chervak's triple kill in the following round gave the lead back to Vega Squadron (4-3). When the score was 8-4 in the Russian team's favor, Noah "Nifty" Francis clutched a 1vs2, giving Renegades their fifth round. Vega Squadron won the first half 10-5.

The Russians took the A-site to win the second half pistol round but Renegades replied in the following round (11-6). However, Vega Squadron managed to extend their lead and earned six match points (15-9). Even though the Russians struggled, they eventually closed it out 16-14 to win their first game at the ELEAGUE Major Main Qualifier.

You could see they were kind of turning on towards the end. so many shots by nifty were whiffed. they never really succeeded at holding back vegas t-side pushes in mid which is what punished them the most. also they continuously aggressed mid on their t-side even though they failed to successfully hit through mid the majority of the time. on rng's t side it should have been clear to them that vega were stacking players towards mid yet they kept hitting hit. poor showing from renegades, hopefully they bounce back - although, this should have been a clear cut win for them and a great start on their road to making top 16. on the other hand, that aggression from vega was fundamental to their success. rng were definitely not able to really do anything about it for a while.

2018-01-13 12:27
Yeah, if you look at the stats and not watch the actual watch the match itself. He missed at least 8 crucial shots throughout the whole match, round changing shots.

I'm not really into betting anyway, but thought I'll bet only £10 so it would be interesting to follow games, now i don't really care about these games :D

save ur money next time, pick one game. And leave a fiver of that 10 pound for a few fun live bets.

The profit you get from a £5 bet ain't worth it imo, while with eight-fold I would've made £113 profit, anyway I'm not worried about that lost money, just lost the excitement to follow games too fast if you know what I mean :(

yeah i feel you. Thats why a small live bet can juice it up a little. Lets say, mouse to lose pistol vs avangar

To be honest I haven't even looked into these live bets like that, but I might add another £10 and just do that
2018-01-12 17:41
not all websites have them. but unibet does, so should bet365. And betway is good for betting on esports.
