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.

VenatoreS and Kinguin met in the final stage of the 12-team qualifier after beating AGO and PRIDE, respectively, in the previous phase of the bracket.

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.

Goofy was a key figure for VenatoreS during their qualification run

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 Krzysiek "Goofy" Gorski 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.

Nice to see objective Slovakian FaZe fan. I hope Laco and Tomca will play the shit out of themselves in the finals. ECS rematch ftw.
2018-02-07 12:53
Yep, I´m Faze fan but first of all I´m a fan of good cs sooo I hope they meet in the final (and let´s be real they will because there are like no other teams good enough) and they both go nuts so we get to watch a good match.

On LAN they would´ve been crushed by AGO.

OK guys hands down from me. I still think that AGO, on their currently form, would win on LAN.
2018-02-07 13:26
patitek was playing, who is banned so no team that is going to be good can play with him if they want to go to major.

2018-02-08 00:34
dont know there was this qualifier last year where a match had to be replayed by VP where they lost to venatores and venatores had to be disqualified beceause they were ineligable to participate due to vac bans
2018-02-08 07:01
The person with a VAC ban (patitek) isn't playing in this team anymore

I don’t understand... Kinguin is a top team with top players but they seem not to understand each other... Take fox out of the IGL role and this gonna be a succes, not because he’s bad lol but because as an IGL you don’t kill much (and even like that fox did) and kinguin needs guys like fox on point! Mark my words
