Vega Squadron defeat BIG in overtime

Vega Squadron took BIG down on Train, 19-16, in a match that made it to overtime to go 2-0 at the FACEIT Major London's Challengers Stage.

The underdogs, Vega Squadron, kicked off the match on Train against BIG winning the first pistol round on the attack with Pavel "hutji" Lashkov and Anton "tonyblack" Kolesnikov picking up doubles. BIG gave up the anti-ecos, but the second BIG got rounds they were able to win the two first rounds without issues before a small pause due to peripheral issues. When the match kicked back up, BIG kept their foot on the gas, steamrolling Vega Squadron five rounds in a row. The Russians didn’t throw the towel, though, and brought it back to 5-5 with two clean rounds in a row before BIG bounced back to keep the lead after a succesful B retake to stay in the lead.

An A execute ending in a 1vs1 that tonyblack was able to win against a red-hot Owen "smooya" Butterfield to reset the German side put the match back even, 6-6. Able to follow it up, ruining BIG’s economy, Vega Squadron managed to take the lead into the half, 9-6.

Vega Squadron make it two victories in two matches

The second half started out with BIG taking the pistol round as Tizian "tiziaN" Feldbusch and Fatih "gob b" Dayik were able to win a 2vs2 against hutji and tonyblack on the A site. BIG then went on a tear, winning several anti-ecos and a gun round to take the lead, 12-9, before Vega Squadron could pick up a pistol buy win to keep it close. A huge round win by tonyblack and Leonid "chopper" Vishnyakov, with the latter winning a 1vs1 afterplant against gob b with a last second defuse.

Having brought it back even, Vega Squadron couldn’t get back in the lead, as gob b and smooya won a 2vs2 on A late in the round to keep the lead, but they did win the follow-up, resetting the German side and taking the lead against the following eco. Both teams then traded several rounds back-and-forth all the way to a 15-15 tie.

The first round of overtime went the way of Vega Squadron as Johannes "tabseN" Wodarz was unable to win a 1vs3 clutch before the time in the round ran out with the bomb fallen. BIG then won the second one with a big four-kill round by Johannes "nex" Maget amid several blunders by the Russian-Ukrainian side, although it was ultimately Vega Squadron who took the lead into the half. They then took match point after the first round of the second half and closed it out the following, 19-16.
