Arbalet Cup #2 found its winner this evening, as k23 claimed the top spot by finishing off Virtus.pro in the Grand Final.

The tournament was held at 4Game in Moscow, seeing eight teams competing for a total prize purse of $10.000. The group stage saw k23 and KerchNET advancing from group A, while DTS.chatrix and Virtus.pro advanced from group B. k23 continued great play in the playoffs, sending both Virtus.pro and KerchNET to the lower-bracket.

Virtus.pro should come back from the lower-bracket, with wins against DTS.chatrix and KerchNET. They should once again play k23, this time in the Grand Final. The Kazakhstanis should claim a simple win, as they defeated the Russians 16-5 on de_train.

k23 hereby claim first place at Arbalet Cup #2, which secured them $5.000. Russian side Virtus.pro claims second, while KerchNET placed third.

they have been this good for a while now...just that they have been unlucky in many events.
2009-05-30 00:26
They've been like this for quite a while, they just haven't been participating in known tournaments.:) With some good sponsors, good management and good practice they have potential to become top5.
2009-05-30 17:26
yeah agreed with both you guys. GO BORAT! :D~
2009-05-31 04:20
Borat should be the team manager or something, everyone would give them wildcard to tournaments..
