Renegades beat TyLoo to win Asia Minor
The title decider kicked off on Train, Renegades' map pick, with Ke "captainMo" Liu and HaoWen "somebody" Xu finding a double and a triple-kill, respectively, to win the CT pistol for their team. After building up their economy, Renegades won the first gun round, which they followed up with another thanks to a 1v2 clutch from Noah "Nifty" Francis.
The Australian side went on to take the lead at 5-3, but TYLOO then equalized the score with two successful rounds, the first of which on the back of an ace from Hansel "BnTeT" Ferdinand. Both teams then won two rounds each, and Renegades picked up the 15th round to lead 8-7 by half-time.
In the second half, Renegades further added to their lead, 11-8, despite losing an anti-eco in the process. TYLOO responded well, losing a single round of the next five to level up the score, but then the Australian squad strung four rounds together fairly easily, taking the lead in the series with a 16-12 scoreline.
Inferno, TYLOO's pick, was the map that followed, and it began with Joakim "jkaem" Myrbostad clutching an impressive 1v3 post-plant situation. In a third-round buy, TYLOO could not get through their opponents' defence, who then saw Justin "jks" Savage come up huge with back-to-back quad-kills to lead his team to a 5-0 score.
In the seventh round, TYLOO were finally able to win their first round of the map with BnTeT and Hui "DD" Wu turning a 2v4 situation around, in part thanks to a triple-kill from the Indonesian. Still, Renegades immediately countered the Asian team, who were only able to win two more rounds until half-time.
Now playing as Terrorists, Renegades won their third pistol of the series with a double and a triple-kill from Nifty and jkaem, respectively, to go up 13-3. TYLOO simply could not stop their opponents from hitting match-point, but they still tried to accomplish a comeback. by reaching their seventh round.
That was when Renegades called for a tactical pause, however, and sealed the deal after building up their economy, 16-8.
