Fragsters beat Imperial; qualify for StarSeries i-League S6
The StarSeries i-League Season 6 Europe Qualifier grand final started on Train, Fragsters map pick. The young Danes showed their strength on the map as Terrorists, picking up round after round to secure 13 before the break. Imperial tied together four T rounds at the start of the second half, but Fragsters didn't have issues closing it out shortly, 16-6.
The second map, Mirage, was much more contested. Fragsters bounced back from a CT pistol loss to tie four rounds together early, but Imperial recovered and took an 8-7 lead going into the second half. With Rokas "EspiranTo" Milasauskas standing out for his squad, Imperial managed to edge out the map 16-14, despite another anti-eco loss that hampered their start to the second half.
The majorly-Lithuanian team had a great start to the decider map, Inferno. After picking up the pistol, Imperial ran up a 7-0 lead on the Terrorist side quickly. Nicolai "torben" Amorim's double in the following round got Fragsters on the board, and they didn't let go, going on an eight-round streak themselves to get the lead in the first half (8-7).
Imperial broke the streak as the sides switched, winning the CT pistol and the followup, but Fragsters quickly turned it around by winning three consecutive rounds. The Danes then reset Imperial after losing a round, setting themselves up for a great second half (12-10). Unfortunately for them, Eimantas "pounh" Lazickas, EspiranTo and Žygimantas "nukkye" Chmieliauskas combined for a force-buy B site retake.
Nemanja "nexa" Isaković's team then got into the lead before Fragsters replied by winning two close rounds, each one coming down to a 1v2 which Ali "hAdji" Haïnouss almost clutched, being short on the defuse by just a couple of seconds. Those rounds gave Fragsters the momentum to close out the game, 16-13, and qualify for StarSeries i-League Season 6.
