jR, tonyblack shine as Vega Squadron ease past Cloud9

MIRAA
September 12th, 2018 22:18

Vega Squadron continue their impressive run at the FACEIT Major following a comprehensive 16-4 victory over Cloud9 on Mirage in the first round of the New Legends stage.

The final match of the day in London kicked off with a great CT pistol by Vega Squadron, who retook the A site with frags from Dmitriy "jR" Chervak and Pavel "hutji" Lashkov. A third-round buy from Cloud9 failed to pay dividends and set them back even further, and their first gun round win shortly afterwards was immediately reset by the Russian side.

It was only in the eighth round that Cloud9 finally put their foot down, stringing two rounds together to halt Vega Squadron's momentum. But the Russians refused to ease off the gas and won the remaining rounds to make it a 12-3 half.

Vega Squadron end day one with a convincing win

Now playing on the CT side, Cloud9 denied Anton "tonyblack" Kolesnikov the ace in the pistol round to keep themselves in the game. But their hopes were immediately crushed: Vega Squadron responded with a successful force buy and took control of the economy, locking down the map without losing any more rounds.

daily reminder that liquid should have been first NA team to win a major still when Liquid will win this major it'll be the first major NA wins as boston was a fluke
2018-09-12 22:22
Boston was NOT just a fluke, you are talking about DIFFERENT cloud9 and don't forget, that they initially went 0 - 2 in group stage.
2018-09-13 03:34
Vega looking strong... feeling bad for ska... he degraded as a player a lot... also that vega coach should keep his shoes on... this is one of the most important tournaments of the year, show some professionalism...
