eUnited through to DreamHack Open Atlanta over Spacestation
Spacestation was the first team to grab a grand final spot after easing past their opponents without dropping a single map. On the other side of the bracket, eUnited's performance was comparable, as they walked over FURIA to reach the final.
The grand final kicked off on Cache, Spacestation's map pick, where Michael "dapr" Gulino & company's stout CT side opened up the series with a 4-0 start. David "DAVEY" Stafford and his men then began to chip away at eUnited's lead as the two sides went back and forth until halftime, where the CTs came out slightly on top 8-7.
eUnited came out in the second half with a little more grit, hounding on Spacestation's defense to win eight out of ten rounds, guided by a sharp Brandon "Ace" Winn who posted a 1.52 rating in the 16-9 map victory.
The series then moved on to Mirage. eUnited wasted no time on their T side to put Spacestation's backs against the wall, rounding out the first half with a dominating 12-3 lead at halftime. dapr & co. then marched through the second half, giving no room for error, winning four in a row to secure the map 16-3 and the 2-0 series to punch their ticket to Atlanta.
