Astralis defeat mousesports; to ECS semi-finals

Astralis have sealed passage to the ECS Season 6 semi-finals after defeating mousesports 2-0 (16-14 on Mirage, 16-13 on Nuke).

The Group A decider match kicked off on mousesports' map pick, Mirage, where Astralis got off to a good start, securing a 3-0 lead after winning their Terrorist pistol. The European mixture then denied two consecutive B executions from their opponents, and followed that up with an anti-eco to restore parity at 3-3.

In the succeeding rounds of the first half, Astralis were unable to find a way through the mousesports defense, with the European mixture quicky hitting double digits. Still, the Danes reduced the deficit to five rounds on the back of a triple and a quad-kill from Nicolai "device" Reedtz and Lukas "gla1ve" Rossander, respectively.

Astralis began the second half on the right foot, with Emil "Magisk" Reif denying Chris "chrisJ" de Jong an ace in a chaotic pistol to set his team up for a four-round run. In a 5v5 retake, mousesports got back on the board thanks to a double and a triple-kill from Martin "STYKO" Styk and Robin "ropz" Kool, respectively, but their opponents still managed to equalize the score at 12-12.

Astralis through to ECS Season 6 semi-finals

ropz then found two entry kills with a saved AK in an eco round, helping mousesports to regain the lead, but Astralis kept their cool and closed out the map in the last round of regulation.

Next up was Nuke, Astralis' map pick. gla1ve's men bagged their third pistol of the series and the subsequent anti-eco, but they could not win the next round despite their opponents not buying weapons, with mousesports eventually securing a 4-2 lead.

Astralis responded in convincing fashion and strung three rounds together, but mousesports tightened up their defence, losing just one more round to go up 9-6 by half-time.

Miikka "suNny" Kemppi's troops further added to their lead after winning their first pistol, which they followed up with two anti-ecos to bring the scoreline to 12-6. However,Astralis went on a massive run after that, sealing the deal at 16-13 to book their spot in the playoffs, in which they will face NiP in the semi-finals.

I can't understand why the admins don't check the settings etc at Astralis team. At Mirage when the score was 13-14 for mouz gla1ve did 2 kills through the smoke and exactly on the next round he did another 2 through the smoke once again. After those rounds the score was 15-14 for Astralis. Such a shame and unfair for the mouz team...
