The first match of the day took place on Train, where BIG won the first pistol round as CTs with a very close defuse on the B site. They also took the next, but lost their only m4a1 along the way as Kevin "xccurate" Susanto managed a knife kill on Johannes "nex" Maget before throwing the rifle away, never to been seen by the Germans again.
BIG denied the first gun round from the Chinese/Indonesian side, and from there started stringing together rounds as they looked coordinated and ready for TYLOO's unpredictable style. Fatih "gob b" Dayik's troops made it all the way to a 7-0 lead before TYLOO poked a hole in the German defences.
TYLOO managed a retake in the second pistol round after the switch to add a third to their tally. With the comeback in their sights, Hui "DD" Wu and co. won four more in a row on the defence side to make it 13-7. BIG then found their footing again, as they swiftly won three rounds to wrap up the match, ultimately winning Train 16-7.
