Space Soldiers see off BIG in Atlanta

Space Soldiers beat BIG 16-8 on Cobblestone to eliminate the German team at the ELEAGUE Major's New Legends Stage.

Two teams with 1-2 records, BIG and Space Soldiers, faced off on Cobblestone to avoid elimination at the ELEAGUE Major's New Legends Stage. The T-sided Space Soldiers won the pistol rounds cleanly.

The Turkish side won the first weapon round thanks to Engin "MAJ3R" Küpeli's double lurk kill and made it 6-0 after Ahmet "paz" Karahoca clutched a 1vs2. Johannes "tabseN" Wodarz clutched a 1vs1 to give BIG their first round but Space Soldiers responded swiftly and reset BIG's economy.

paz was merciless against BIG

BIG didn't have any answers to Space Soldiers' agressive style and the Turks won the first half 14-1. BIG won the second half pistol round by taking the B-site and made it 14-4. Space Soldiers won the first weapon round and went on to close out the game with a 16-8 scoreline.

Shows Europe is very talented. But a major should showcase talent globally and be fair about it. Think of it this way if Europe is the best they’ll have the majority of legend spots.

True, it is in the best interest of everyone in the CS community to help expand counter-strike to new markets/regions. With a bigger talent pool the scene becomes more competitive in the long run, and new markets means that CS as a competitive E-Sport will survive longer than if it just remained a Europe/NA ESport like it is now.

We have a expression in turkey for sentences like this : If my aunt had mustache he could be my uncle. Lmao
2018-01-22 17:19
if paz didn't step up, someone else would. You can't have all team members shine in one game. Everyone besides ngin played incredibly well but paz made a difference
2018-01-22 17:25
yeahh, of course, but its cbble. if big would have got 4 or 5 rounds on ct side, it would be a close game in the end.
2018-01-22 17:26
"would have got" well it didn't happen bud. SS clearly outplayed them and they deserved the win
2018-01-22 17:37
yeah sure. totally deserved, this team looks amazing.
2018-01-22 17:37
btw mousesports have one of the best teamwork ive seen in a while. The flashes and work they do together are amazing
