Misfits have kicked off their campaign at the ELEAGUE Major Main Qualifier with a comprehensive 16-4 victory over FlipSid3.
The North American team got off to a flying start to the match, securing their T-side pistol, the following anti-ecos, and the first gun round with a fast-paced B execution. After getting their economy in order FlipSid3 were only able to pick up their first round on the board thanks to a sneaky 1v3 clutch from Yegor "markeloff" Markelov.
Sean "seang@res" Gares's men would not let the CIS squad string any rounds together, however, and they kept piling more misery on their opponents. Andrey "B1ad3" Gorodenskiy could not find a way for his team to stop the home side, who ran riot on the Terrorist side and closed out the half with a crushing 14-1 lead.
FlipSid3 still found a lifeline in the second half after winning the pistol and the anti-ecos. However, the North Americans would not let a comeback happen, and picked up two quick rounds to lock down the map.
