TyLoo, MVP PK qualify for IEM Sydney 2018

Tyloo and MVP PK are the first two teams Asian teams to secure spots at IEM Sydney 2018.

The game between TYLOO and BOOT-d[S] was the first semi-final to take place, with Cache starting off the series. The Singaporeans showed up strong the CT side of their map pick, running up 12 rounds in the first half. With that massive lead, Anthony "ImpressioN" Lim and co. were able to close out the map simply and put the pressure on TYLOO moving on to Inferno.

The start of TYLOO's map pick was action-packed, as teams traded force-buys back-and-forth. From a 4-4 scoreline, the Chinese-Indonesian squad managed to peel off into the lead, but only shortly as BOOT-d[S] brought it back to end the half 8-7 up. With their new addition Alikhan "w1nt3r" Kopzhanov, BOOT-d[S] was able to win the first two Terrorist rounds, but TYLOO won the third and put on a clinic after that, making a clean comeback from 7-10 to win 16-10.

TyLoo secured another international LAN event outing

Perhaps shaken by their loss on Inferno, BOOT-d[S] weren't able to establish themselves on the decider map, Mirage, finishing the Terrorist side with just four rounds, the majority of which they picked up in the final stages of the half. After the switch, TYLOO promptly ended the series with a 5-1 T-side, securing a spot in Sydney.

MVP PK were unrelenting on the T side of Inferno, starting off their semi-final series on the right foot. Flash got on the board in round five, making it 1-4, but MVP PK manage to break their bank quickly and run up a 10-1 lead which was made into a 13-2 halftime score. With a force-buy round won, Flash managed to put up a fight on the T-side, but it didn't last for long and the Koreans closed the map 16-7.

The Chinese squad had a much better start to the second map, Cobblestone, which they made possible by winning the Terrorist pistol and the following round. After going 5-2 down, MVP PK turned things around and grabbed a 9-6 lead. In the second half, rounds were traded early on, but MVP PK took control of the game and closed it 16-8, with Hyun-Pyo "XigN" Lee's hat-trick in the final round sealing the deal.

One more Asian team will qualify for IEM Sydney 2018 through the lower bracket, but at the moment, 11 out of 16 teams for the event are known:

Brazil SK Europe FaZe
Denmark Astralis Europe mousesports
United States Cloud9 Ukraine Natus Vincere

How did tyloo manage to win fnatic 2/3mths ago (forgot which lan tourament) 0.0
2018-04-05 20:50
Pistolround+r4 too important, everyone can beat anyone sometimes if you win the 2/3 crucial rounds in a match, it doesn't say anything anymore.

Pistol round is important but not too important,make one single mistake on yhe second round,the other team can make a comeback easily despite you winning the pistol round
2018-04-07 11:31
if you win 2x pistol you win 85% of matches, it's ridiculous. Stats don't lie. Mousesports are kings of Mirage currently, 19 wins out of last of their 20 mirage. The one loss? Ofc they lost both pistol and immediately lost 2-16.

Ermm why are u bringing in mousesports?? Let talk about the sick boost by olofmeister when he was still in fnatic in 2015, he did a sick boost at overpass even tho fnatic lose both pistol round to ldlc.....
2018-04-07 15:34
If you can't see it's an example why a pistolround is too important then you're just clueless. Olofboost has nothing to do with the situation, retard.

A pistol round is important,but i stated it "too important"...i am clueless???i seen before comebacks with teams losing both pistol rounds....olofboost prove thay even without winning pistol round,they are able to make a comeback,dont believe u can watch some of the comeback videos by other teams....so now who is the retard and clueless guy right now
2018-04-07 16:04
Man you are daft. of course YOU CAN WIN even if you LOSE PISTOL....the problem is it's only a SUB 20% CHANCE THAT YOU DO, which is too low, get it into your thick skull.
