SCARZ Absolute qualify for eXTREMESLAND Asia and IESF World Championship
The four-team LAN event took place this weekend on September 29-30 at LFS Esports Arena in Tokyo, Japan. In the semis, the local favourites SCARZ Absolute swept past Katsuya "Ayanox" Kitada's RIG in two maps (16-5 on Nuke & 16-10 on Mirage).
On the second map, Train was back-and-forth, with SCARZ Absolute managing an 8-7 half on the CT side. Yusuke "Norisen" Shima's men secured the second pistol round and took the lead to 13-10 after RIPablo Escobar's 1v1 smoke defuse on the B bombsite.
However, Ryo "barce" Takebayashi's crew were able to turn it around in the end, clutching the map 16-14, and the series in 2-0 fashion.
