ORDER beat Legacy to finalize IEM Sydney team list

ORDER are through to IEM Sydney 2018 after beating Legacy 2-0 in the lower bracket final of the Oceania closed qualifier.

The battle for the final place in Sydney kicked off on Legacy's map pick, Mirage, with ORDER securing a quick 4-0 lead as CTs after winning the first pistol. The Terrorists responded with two rounds of their own, but ORDER immediately regained control of proceedings, losing only three more rounds throughout the rest of the half to bag a 10-5 lead.

In the second half, Jordan "Hatz" Bajic helped his team win their second pistol with a quad-kill, paving the way for them to hit 13 rounds. Legacy responded well with a five-round winning streak to bring the deficit to just two rounds, but ORDER would not let the game slip away and closed the map out, 16-11.

Hatz and co. have assured themselves of a spot in Sydney

Legacy began their opponents' map pick, Inferno, on the right foot, winning their CT pistol and following that up with the subsequent anti-eco. But a third-round buy from ORDER marked the beginning of a turnaround, with Chris "emagine" Rowlands's side taking a dominant 11-4 half-time lead.

ORDER further added to their lead following a flawless pistol round, but Legacy responded immediately on a force-buy thanks to a triple-kill from Peter "BL1TZ" Athanasatos. After a messy period in which rounds went back and forth, ORDER picked up the pace and secured three rounds in a row to put the match to bed. 

With ORDER's qualification, here is the finalized team list for IEM Sydney 2018:

Brazil SK Europe FaZe
Europe mousesports Sweden fnatic
Ukraine Natus Vincere Denmark Astralis
United States Cloud9 Australia Renegades
Turkey Space Soldiers United States NRG
China TYLOO Korea MVP PK
Singapore BOOT-d[S] Australia Chiefs
Australia Grayhound Australia ORDER

IEM Sydney 2018 will run from May 1-6, with 16 teams battling it out for a share of the $250,000 prize-pool. The event's group stage will take place from May 1-3, while the playoffs will be held in front of a live audience at the Qudos Bank Arena.

If emag and hatz keep entry fragging like they did on inferno they can do something. Unfortunately no other team will make it so fucking easy as legacy did, just running the same 2 setups every round.

Mate, the reason for this tournament is to develop CSGO in Australia. SA teams are lucky to be in a competitive scene, and not completely isolated from the rest of the world. You should be happy SA teams can qualify to tournaments. Not to mention that ESL BH invited 5 SA teams. Instead of complaining, you should be happy that the scene as a whole is growing, to create a competiti... Dammit, I forgot Monkeys don't speak.

??????? I'm talking about tyloo, MVP pk and singapore team, you learn English from childhood, but can not interpret a simple phrase? And it will only have 2 South American teams (counting SK), not 5 in the ESL one BH. Your IQ should be very low, it's sad to see someone so dumb :(
