OpTic move past Virtus.pro in London

OpTic have moved into the 1-1 pool of teams in the FACEIT Major's New Challengers stage after defeating Virtus.pro 16-13 on Mirage.

The match began with a flawless T pistol from Virtus.pro, who managed to kill all opponents without even planting the bomb, punishing OpTic's aggressive approach.

The Polish side followed that up with both anti-ecos to increase their lead to 3-0, but the landscape of the game changed immediately once OpTic had money in the bank. The Danish side kept a very tight defence for the remainder of the half and managed to take an impressive seven-round lead before switching sides.

OpTic are now 1-1 in London

Virtus.pro kept themselves in the game by winning the following pistol after taking advantage of their great mid presence. Filip "NEO" Kubski's troops added both anti-ecos to their tally, but, just like in the first half, they lost control of the game once OpTic bought up.

OpTic went on to hit map point at 15-8, but then they struggled to deal the finishing blow as Virtus.pro tightened up their defence. The Polish side did their best to force overtime, but their resistance finally eroded in the 29th round, when a trio of kills by Kristian "k0nfig" Wienecke gave OpTic their 16th round of the game.

Optic is dead. They cannot beat a team better than ran around like none pros in random faceit-matches. I guess this will be their only win.

2 pistol rounds = 6 rounds lucky 2 gun rounds 2 vs 4 wins. 2 eco rounds = pretty legit.

that's exactly what you get for milking the fame some of the players have. Problem with both the org and the players... I won't even "which tier" they are cuz won't bother even to watch this team anymore.

Being a virtus pro fan is hard. What is the org gonna do once they remove the rest of their players? Maybe an international roster or Russian team?
