Kinguin beat TYLOO at ZOTAC Cup Masters to reach semi finals

After two close bouts on Mirage and Overpass, Kinguin convincingly took down TYLOO in the Train decider to move on at the ZOTAC Cup Masters 2018 Grand Finals in Hong Kong.

The opening quarter-final at ZOTAC Cup Masters Grand Finals kicked off on TYLOO's map pick, Mirage, where Hansel "BnTeT" Ferdinand and his men jumped out 3-0 on the T side right from the start. Wiktor "TaZ" Wojtas and co. eventually secured their first as CTs, but TYLOO returned with two more to make it 5-1.

In the following round, a massive triple-kill with the USP-S from Jacek "MINISE" Jeziak gave his team the edge to secure their second, which initiated Kinguin's big run to even the score at 5-5. TYLOO then started to change the pace of the game, taking a more aggressive approach to rack up four in a row, before the Poles ended the half down 9-6.

mouz was a big factor in the Kinguin win over TyLoo

In the second half, Kinguin got off to a smooth start on their T side, securing the pistol and the anti-ecos before claiming their fourth in a row (11-9). TYLOO finally got their wits together and kept their defenses tight, pulling together five straight for a 14-11 lead, but the Poles fought back, stringing together two more to reduce their deficit by one.

A lopsided round from Kinguin then put TYLOO at map point, but TaZ and his men came rallying back to grab their 14th of the half. In the end, a double-kill from HaoWen "somebody" Xu with the CZ-75 was enough to seal the 16-14 map victory.

TYLOO started out strong as Terrorists on the second map, Overpass, as they easily took the pistol round in spite of a bayonet kill from Karol "rallen" Rodowicz. They made it to five rounds until Kinguin fired back with two of their own. BnTeT's troops took the next pair of rounds, nullifying the economic gain from the Poles and eventually made it to 8-2 in their favour.

The 11th round proved to be the most exciting of the first half, with Kevin "xccurate" Susanto nailing a fast-reaction no-scoped hit on a jumping TaZ from a boosted position outside the B site and TYLOO only narrowly squeezing out the win. Kinguin rallied back somewhat, managing three rounds in a row for the first time in the match to make it 10-5 before the switch.

TaZ's men continued their campaign to get back into the match, winning the pistol round as Terrorists as well as the two that followed, Paweł "reatz" Jańczak getting the AK ace in the second anti-eco and making the score 8-10. Following the first gun round from TYLOO, the teams started trading some messy rounds until the Poles finally seized control and tied things up at 12-12 thanks to a well-playing Mikołaj "mouz" Karolewski.

Kinguin made it to a 14-13 lead before TYLOO, mirroring the first map of the series, turned on the aggression and won an important eco to make it 14-14. It wasn't enough in the end though, as the the Poles narrowly closed out Overpass 16-14.

TaZ's troops move on to the semi finals at ZOTAC Cup Masters

Action moved on to the decider, Train, where Kinguin won the first pistol round as CTs with a quick defuse, losing all five players after the fact. With money from the first round plant and kills, TYLOO only needed one eco round to buy up and make it back to a 1-2 deficit. TaZ's troops weren't fazed, though, as embarked on a dominating run taking them to a 7-2 lead before BnTeT and his men answered back with one round.

Kinguin won the following round and reset TYLOO's economy, the Poles retaining control all the way to halftime at 11-4.

mouz came out swinging with a 3k in the second pistol round, the Poles taking the following two anti-ecos. From there, it was smooth sailing for the dominating Kinguin squad as they reached a seemingly convincing 15-4 lead. TYLOO managed a valiant effort to bring it all back, though, as they strung together 5 rounds in a row. In the end, Kinguin managed to shut down BnTeT and his men, eventually winning Train 16-9 and the series 2-1
