eUnited and Rogue take wins in their opening matches

eUnited were able to beat Luminosity in their Group A opener, 16-13, on Dust2, while Rogue beat Fragsters in their Group B opener, 16-8, on Inferno.

Luminosity took the pistol round on the Terrorist side, and increased their lead to two after winning the anti-eco. eUnited were then able to take the first gun round, and tied it up with an eco bash of their own, making it 2-2. The North American side then went on a five-round streak to take the early lead before a successful B play got the Brazilians back on the board. eUnited kept standing strong on defense, however, and were able to take the half with a solid 10-5 lead.

eUnited will move on to the Group A upper bracket

The second half started out as the Luminosity show. After winning the pistol round, the Brazilians were able to take the reins of the match, winning rounds and building an economy all the way to 12-12, not letting eUnited get streaks. Finally, Kaleb "moose" Jayne & co. were able to bring it back their way, winning four of the last five rounds to seal the deal and move on to the upper bracket.

Fragsters started out on the right foot, winning the T-side pistol round, but it was quickly Rogue who turned it around, winning the second round and taking an early lead after winning the first gun round. The Danes were able to get a couple rounds in to keep it even, but Rogue were able to stay in the driver’s seat, controlling the pace on defense and not allowing Fragsters to find their groove.From then on, the American side hit the gas pedal, winning every round to close the half out, 12-3.

Hiko & co. made quick work of Fragsters

The second half started out with Daniel "vice" Kim getting a triple to get his team closer to closing the match out, which Rogue followed up with a win against a forcebuy and then an anti-eco to get on match point. Then, Fragsters won the first gun round, and were then able to win several in a row to stay alive before Rogue decided to take a timeout at 15-8. It was then and there that rogue closed it out, 16-8, to go on to the winners' match.
