VenatoreS qualify for V4 Future Sports Festival
VenatoreS have booked their spot at the V4 Future Sports Festival after beating Kinguin 2-1 in the grand final of the Polish qualifier.
The series kicked off on Kinguin's map pick, Mirage, but it was VenatoreS who started off on the right foot. Still, the Polish-Portuguese side came back from a 5-13 deficit to take the game to overtime and eventually close out the map, 22-19.
VenatoreS' map pick, Cache, followed the same pattern as Mirage as VenatoreS started it off with a 10-5 half-time lead as CTs. This time around, however, Michał "MICHU" Müller and co. could not stop their opponents from finishing things off with a 16-10 win.
The decider map was Train, and Kinguin found themselves some breathing room in the series by securing an opening 7-3 lead on the CT-side. Nevertheless, with 17-year-old Krzysztof "Goofy" Górski leading the charge, VenatoreS responded with a flawless 13-round streak to wrap things up and secure their place at the V4 Future Sports Festival.
