EnVyUs edge out Flash; avoid elimination in Atlanta
The French team had a perfect start to the game against Flash, but only closed out Inferno 16-13 due to a poor CT side.
After struggling on the first two days of the ELEAGUE 2018 Major Main Qualifier, Envy were off to a great start against Flash. On the Terrorist side of the map, the Frenchmen were quickly up 5-0, with Flash's second buy round and three-man B site setup being disolved by Cédric "RpK" Guipouy's entries.
The Chinese side finally got a round on the board when YuanZhang "Attacker" Sheng and YuLun "Summer" Cai combined for all five kills, but were reset in the folow-up and as Alexandre "xms" Forté clutched a 1v2 anti-eco, Envy started running away with the match.
The French team still finished the half with a massive advantage, 12-3, with the in-game leader Vincent "Happy" Schopenhauer topping the scoreboard with 19 kills. Playing on the Terrorist side now, Flash won the pistol round and went on to secure two perfect anti-ecos making the score 6-12.
Christophe "SIXER" Xia opened the first buy with a M4A1-S double, but the fast trade allowed Flash to wrap the A site and pick off RpK and Happy and extend their lead. The Chinese side got the deficit down to three rounds (12-9) when a mixed buy from Envy paid off and allowed them to get on the verge of closing the game out (14-9).
With three entry kills in the next round, Envy was looking to strike a killing blow, but Summer and Attacker clutched out the 2v5, with the latter picking up four frags. Flash continued putting on the pressure and QiFang "Karsa" Su, who was struggling to have an impact on the game, clutched a 1v2 to make it 13-14.
