By defeating EURONICS 2-0 in the grand final (16-5 Inferno, 16-8 Mirage) AGO claimed the OGA Counter PIT title and the $18,000 first place prize.

The online tournament with a $40,000 prize pool started off with a five-team round-robin group stage, from which four teams advanced.

Early on, AGO wasn't impressive, but they squeezed into the playoffs with a 1W-3L record. However, the Poles stepped it up in the playoffs, beating x-kom, HAVU and EURONICS in BO3 series to reach the grand finals.

AGO take the title after a slow start to the tournament

AGO's opponent in the grand final match was EURONICS, who bounced back from the upper-bracket final defeat by beating HAVU 2-1.

The rematch between AGO and EURONICS started on Inferno, EURONICS' map pick. The German side struggled to do damage on the T side of the map, picking up only two Terrorist rounds. After the switch, Oliver "kzy" Heck and co. won the pistol and the followups, going up to five, but AGO closed out the map swiftly, 16-5, moving on to Mirage.

On map two, Damian "Furlan" Kislowski's team once again had a good start, this time as Terrorists, but EURONICS replied early, tieing the score up at 3-3 when the rifles rolled it. The rest of the half was back-and-forth as well, with AGO finishing it with a tight 8-7 lead. EURONICS had a chance to take control of the map as they won the T pistol, but after losing the following round on a B-split, everything fell apart. AGO tied eight rounds straight to finish the map swiftly, 16-8, and win OGA Counter PIT.

Hm, I was worried they'd play worse with Szpero but it seems they're actually playing better. Hopefully it's not just a honeymoon period and hopefully snatchie is a good fit in VP. Would be great for 2 Polish teams compete to get to tier 1.

I feel like Szpero is more defensive sniper than Snatchie was, maybe his playstyle just fits better into the overall one of the team.

And VP needs aggressive sniper so all good. The swap might be perfect for both.
