BIG overrun TYLOO to book semi-final spot
The two teams had already faced each other in the opening match in Malta, with TYLOO recording a 16-14 victory in a keenly-contested encounter. This decider series could not have been more different from that game, though, as BIG ran over the Chinese side effortlessly.
The demolition job began on Inferno, TYLOO's map pick, where Fatih "gob b" Dayik's troops cruised to a 13-2 lead on the CT side after keeping their opponents from building up an economy or stringing rounds together. BIG's dominance continued after switching to the Terrorist side, stringing three rounds together en-route to a 16-2 finish.
Dust2, the very first map of the previous match, followed the same pattern of Inferno, this time with BIG opening things up on the Terrorist side. The German side raced out to a 14-1 lead and then piled more misery on TYLOO in the second half to wrap things up quickly and book passage to the semi-finals, in which they will take on tournament favorites Liquid.
