HellRaisers win Bets.net Masters over North

HellRaisers defeated North 2-1 (16-14 Cache, 6-16 Overpass, 19-17 Inferno) to claim the Bets.net Masters title.

Issa "ISSAA" Murad's 3K in the Terrorist side pistol round on Cache set up HellRaisers for a solid start to the grand final, but they weren't able to capitalize on it, instantly getting reset by North's Deagle buy. The Danes took control of the half from there, building up the lead convincingly, while HellRaisers were only able to win sporadic rounds and never follow up on them.

With Markus "Kjaerbye" Kjærbye leading the way, North had a 10-5 advantage going into the second half. Vladyslav "bondik" Nechyporchuk played a key part in the second pistol, clutching a 1v1, and allowed his team to get back into the game.

In a mirror of the first half, HellRaisers were now dictating the pace of the game and having money control, coming back from the five-round deficit to take the 12-11 lead. Mathias "MSL" Lauridsen's squad woke up towards the end of the second half, but HellRaisers were still able to close out their map pick, 16-14.

HellRaisers claim the title in Kiev

Overpass started with North mopping up the whole Terrorist team as they encroached towards A in the pistol, and followed that up with two more rounds won. In the first buy round, HellRaisers got into a very advantageous situation, however, Valdemar "valde" Bjørn Vangså saved his side with a 1v3 hold.

North had 5-0 lead before Kirill "ANGE1" Karasiow's hat-trick on the B offensive got his team on the board, HellRaisers then followed that up and closed the gap to 5-4. Then valde showed up big again, dancing around smokes on A to pick up a quad kill and get North back on a roll.

HellRaisers were 10-5 down going into the second half, and after losing a 1v3 situation to Philip "aizy" Aistrup in the pistol round, looked down and out of Overpass. ANGE1's team managed to add one more round to their score, but a successful B rush and some good clutching sealed the deal for North on their map pick, 16-6.

valde had a lights-out performance on Overpass

ISSAA's clunky clutch in the pistol round was just what HellRaisers needed, giving them a good start on Inferno after a lackluster showing on Overpass. The mixed team with a Ukrainian base built up on that, with Bence "DeadFox" Böröcz's 4K in round five and double entry in round six proving crucial for his team (6-0).

After being shut down by the Hungarian on the B site approach, North switched their focus towards A and finally got on the board. It started with Daniel "mertz" Mertz winning the AWP duel in mid over Özgür "woxic" Eker, while MSL got the key mid-round frags.

Unable to string together a few rounds, the Danish team found themselves playing with weak buys in the next few rounds, on which HellRaisers capitalized, taking an 11-1 lead. MSL's team salvaged the half somewhat at the end, with clutches going their way to finish it 11-4.

By winning the second pistol and following it up with good anti-ecos, North started to build momentum. A lot of agression in the first buy round of the second half proved succesful for the Danes, and they cut further into HellRaisers' lead, chaining a total of six CT rounds (11-10).

After losing a round to a well-timed CZ-75 push, North instantly bounced back and took the lead, going up 13-12. In desperate times, in the games' closing stages, bondik pulled-off back-to-back hero plays, clutching a 1v3 and then a 1v4 to the delight of the Ukrainian crowd.

HellRaisers were looking to get to match point as they had a 1v4 after plant on B, but aizy took down one and sneaked in a smoke defuse (14-14), helping his side force overtime in the end.

The back-and-forth continued into the added rounds, but HellRaisers were able to close out the game in the end, with North's B split shut down to make the final score 19-17.

Disband? what on earth are you talking about. this is not just 5 random friends who started a team. it's a serious sports organization with a huge football team behind them, with players on contracts almost the same salary size of the footballs players. No one is going to "disband"

This grand final was pretty amazing. It wasn't the flashiest grand final but it was filled with smart plays. Aizy and Bondik = Clutch kings. DeadFox = So on point with the impact frags. His transition from main Awper to rifler has been pretty great and it's a good bonus that he can still awp well despite that. Valde = Potential to become the best Danish player of the year if he keeps playing like this. Insanely good at getting multiple frags within a round. Mertz = Pretty dope Awper I must say. He was quite impressive throughout despite starting to lose some steam and kept missing a lot during some of the last rounds on Inferno. I know a lot of haters are going to shit on North now for this but I think they have improved and still has the potential to grow even further, especially if Aizy and Valde both show up at the same time. Congratulations HR and GGWP to both teams.

online, Johnta is allowed to speak so ANGE1 doesn't need to focus on IGLing but on lan he can't focus on his invidual play
2018-04-08 21:44
IDK what it is but he's so god awful on LAN, right now I'm honestly calling a guy with a shit ton of LAN experience in his career as an onliner which is really weird. Maybe he is doing to much but I don't see some sick team play, strats or tactics out of HR, they play like a pug mix and rely on players like Woxic. His movement and aim just look so bad when they play at LAN.
