VG.Flash beat TeamOne to lift WCA 2017 trophy

VG.Flash have been crowned champions of the WCA 2017 Finals after defeating TeamOne 2-0 (16-7 on Mirage, 22-19 on Train).

The title decider kicked off on Mirage, VG.Flash's map pick, with TeamOne winning their CT pistol and following that up with an anti-eco. The Chinese side responded in a third-round buy, which marked the beginning of a six-round winning streak from them.

The Brazilians still won the ninth round, but YuLun "⁠Summer⁠" Cai and co. continued the defence in check to switch sides with a dominant 12-3 lead. TeamOne then found a lifeline on the map after securing their T-side pistol and both anti-ecos, but it was simply too little, too late, to stop the Chinese team from taking the map, 16-7.

VG.Flash, who were fielding Zhuo "⁠advent⁠" Liang for WeiJie "⁠zhokiNg⁠" Zhong, began their opponents' map pick, Train, with a quick 3-0 lead as CTs. TeamOne replied with two successful B executions to break VG.Flash's economy, but the Chinese squad still managed to get their fourth round on the boardwith nothing but pistols.

Nevertheless, TeamOne won a force-buy of their own and went on to grab the lead for the first time in the game. The game remained a back-and-forth affair, but the Brazilians strung the final three rounds of the half to bag a 9-6 lead.

VG.Flash picked up their Terrorist pistol in the second half, but TeamOne instantly countered them in a force-buy. After that, neither team was able to get a grip on the game until the 23rd round, when VG.Flash won five rounds in a row to secure a narrow 14-13 lead. 

TeamOne then equalized the score,VG.Flash to call for a tactical pause. That inspired the Chinese side to hit 15 rounds, but Pedro "⁠Maluk3⁠" Campos and co. managed to take the map to overtime thanks to a triple-kill from the Brazilian sniper. VG.Flash would not let that get to them however, and sealed the deal after two overtimes, 22-19.
