SK have picked up their second victory at the ELEAGUE Major Boston's New Legends Stage after beating mousesports 16-12 on Mirage.

The match kicked off with SK executing a nearly-flawless A-split to secure their Terrorist pistol, and quickly following that up with the subsequent anti-ecos. Although mousesports responded with a successful gun round, the Brazilians did not let any of their opponents survive, meaning that the European mixture had to go for a shoddy buy, which they eventually won.

Even though SK then replied with their first two victorious rounds with guns, mousesports kept countering the Brazilians' slow-paced style with a very tight defense to equalize the score at 5-5.

In the next round, a fast triple-kill from João "felps" Vasconcellos on mid opened up a way for SK to stop mousesports' streak, but they could not string more than two rounds together as Chris "chrisJ" de Jong's men picked up the final three rounds to secure an 8-7 half-time lead.

SK are one victory away from qualifying for the Major playoffs

The second half began with SK picking up the CT pistol thanks to Epitacio "TACO" de Melo clutching an impressive 1v2, setting themselves up for a narrow lead, 9-8. mousesports immediately responded with a triumphant third-round buy, but they could not follow that up.

Just like in the first half, the match was nothing but a back-and-forth affair. Still, from the 23rd round onward, Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo and co. lost a single round before finishing things off, 16-12.

Another EASY game. Who's next?
2018-01-20 22:25
SK lost more gun rounds than they won, I highly doubt it was an easy game. They lost 11 gun rounds. It's too bad though, I feel like Mouz's strong side is their strong pistol rounds as well as force buys, if they had won any of those (or even dealt more dmg than they did, hardly any) they'd almost certainly have won the game or at least secured OT.
2018-01-20 22:27
Until the Faze it's difficult, all the teams trained a lot and it's not easy to fight them.

What a shit match by FalleN, no impact kills, 29.7 ADR, 0.68 rating. Versus Space Soldiers cold was absent, versus mouz FalleN was absent. If SK play 4v5 again vs a better team, they will fall hard, SK better wake up and play properly.

Truth is SK is giving zero fucks for this major. They are all upset with the ridiculous rules, so they just focus on the rest of the year with boltz. So yeah, if they win this I'll be impressed.

interesting to see coldzera putting up positive numbers, he's been shit all year up until now
2018-01-20 22:28
Wot? It is the second game of the year
2018-01-20 22:35
excited to see if coldzera can continue in this manner. it feels like just yesterday he got wrecked by Space Soldiers. Who knows, maybe we will see him in the top 20 in 2018? but this could just have been an over performance from him, we'll see
2018-01-20 22:37
Dude, you said "he's been shit all year until now" when he literally played ONE match in 2018. It makes no sense
2018-01-20 22:40
what's your point? coldzera actually had just a 0.94 LAN rating in 2018 up until now, that's why I think it's fun to see him step up here. I think he could be a good player in the future

Way too easy for SK Gaming, the best team that has ever existed in all versions of Counter Strike. This record-breaking machine, also known as "team", is composed by: Gabriel Toledo - FalleN: The best sniper and In-Game Leader that ever existed in this game that people call Counter Strike.When the enemies press TAB and see his name on the other team, they instantly choke and lose all their composure, hence losing the match, just ask Team Liquid and they will tell you all about this. Fernando Alvarenga - fer: The best player of 2017 so far. His play style is so good that the enemies can't even see where he is on the map. If you think Fer is in one place and you go and check that place you'll find out that he's not there and is actually behind you and by this time you have already been knifed and humiliated by the best lurker that ever played this game. Enemies choke just by seeing his model in-game, just ask TaZ and he will tell you more about it. Ricado Prass - boltz: Our fatty and cute guy as knowed as ‘boltão’ or ‘boltalha’ is back to the team since lil star felps was benched. His sprays are the best of the world, he may has german blood in his veins but he is not a cheater tho! Boltz can easily hold a bomb side by himself anytime anyday, spraying and collecting some kills like no one can! Also, this guy is a clutch monster.. enemies cry when they press TAB and see thats boltz left to play the clutch. Marcelo David - coldzera: Also known as GODZERA he is without a doubt the best player that ever played this game. Fallen is the best sniper and IGL, but Coldzera... Oh Coldzera, what can I even say about this man? He's like the Messi and CR7 of CS:GO, he's not from this planet. His aim is always on point, his game sense is impecable, he is also the smartest player that ever existed and the most humble one also, because a player of his skill level you'd think that he'd play as the team star or IGL, but no, he plays a support. But Cold (or GOD) can play any role and he'll still be better than 100% of the players. You know why? Because Coldzera has magic! Good players win titles, amazing players break records, Coldzera breaks the rules! You can stay with your stats that I'll stay with the magic! You prefer the stats, I prefer tha magic, I prefer COLDZERA! Epitácio de Melo - TACO: You might get fooled by his stats not being so good as his other 4 teammates, but just watch any SK match and you will see why TACO is the best entry fragger in the world and best solo B player ever. He's so versatile, you can give him any weapon, even an AWP, and put him alone in any B bombsite of any map and he'll humiliate all the players of the other team by his amazing skill and outstanding positioning as well as his out-of-this-world game sense. He's one of the smartest players that ever played this game and you know that. As a Terrorist just put him in front of the line and he'll win dominate the bombsite all by himself, and even die so that his team can plant the bomb! Tell me if this isn't the best thing a player could do? Give his life and give up having good stats so that his team can succeed? I can't hold back the tears anymore, damn my keyboard is all wet now... I'll have to stop here. TACO <3 And this is why this is an easy match for the best team that ever existed.
