TeamOne qualify for Toyota Master over Bravado
TeamOne made their way into the final starting with a forfeit from eUnited, before taking down Gorilla Gang in a three-map series. On the other side of the bracket, Bravado scraped by FURIA 16-14 and then took on Ghost, besting them 2-0 to book their final against the Brazilians.
The series kicked off on the South Africans’ map pick, Inferno, where Nicolas "NikoM" Miozzi and his men picked up the CT pistol and the following anti-ecos for a 3-0 start. Bravado managed to wiggle their way back into the frame, but the Brazilians were resilient and came out on top with a 10-5 score at halftime.
Bravado went into the second half with vengeance and locked down the CT pistol, before adding four more to even the 10-10 score. The two sides then went back and forth as the Brazilians began to pull away with the lead, eventually reaching map point, but Aran "Sonic" Groesbeek & co. weren't going down that easy, and fired back to force overtime.
In the extra rounds, the two sides fought tooth and nail, but, in the end, TeamOne were able to put the nail in the coffin and secure the 19-17 map victory.
Train was the next map in the series, which saw the Brazilians T side open up the first half in dominating fashion, winning eight out of nine rounds, before the South Africans caught a grip to reduce their deficit, down 9-6 at the half.
TeamOne came out in the second half and kept their distance, adding three to their lead to make it 12-6. Although the South Africans finally got on the board in their gun round and racked up three more, Bruno "bit" Lima and his men managed to hold the line to close the map 16-10 and win the series to qualify for Toyota Master Bangkok.
