3DMAX have beaten Virtus.pro 2-0 at the ESEA MDL Season 29 Europe Finals to qualify for the ninth season of ESL Pro League Europe (16-12 on Nuke and 16-10 and Dust2).

The best-of-three game took place in Dallas, Texas, USA. Lucas "Lucky" Chastang and Audric "JaCkz" Jug, who have recently joined G2, played for 3DMAX due to this season's roster lock rules. The match kicked off on Nuke where the T-sided Polish team got off to a good start by taking the first three rounds.

Lucky got a double kill in the fourth round which 3DMAX won after he defused the bomb. The Frenchmen were unable to build a strong economy as they couldn't go on a streak. They won the eleventh round despite only having pistols and trailed 6-5.

3DMAX clinched the spot over VP

3DMAX ended the first half 9-6 ahead following a five round streak but Virtus.pro won the second pistol as Michał "MICHU" Müller got the first and last kills of the round. Filip "NEO" Kubski & company cut the deficit to only one round after securing an anti-eco but Bryan "Maka" Canda clutched a 1vs2 in the following round to make it 10-8.

MICHU got a triple kill with a Deagle in the next round to give Virtus.pro their ninth. The Poles took the lead but lost five rounds in a row to trail 15-11. Gaëtan "JiNKZ" Jamin's 1vs2 clutch in the 28th round finished the game 16-12 in favor of 3DMAX.

VP still have a chance to qualify

The series continued on Dust2 where the CT-sided French team picked up the pistol victory thanks to a triple kill by Lucky. Michał "snatchie" Rudzki got a quad kill in the third round to give Virtus.pro their first round. The Poles got within one round of 3DMAX on three different occasions but David "Davidp" Prins's team managed to finish the half 9-6 ahead.

JiNKZ found himself in a 1vs2 in the second pistol and came out on top to extend his team's lead to 10-6. 3DMAX were close to making it 12-7 but Jarosław "pashaBiceps" Jarząbkowski and Piotr "morelz" Taterka won a 2vs5, making it 11-8. Davidp and JiNKZ returned the favor in the 23rd round when they won a 2vs5 (13-10).

3DMAX finished off the map with a 16-10 scoreline, winning the series 2-0 and booking their place in ESL Pro League Season 9 Europe. Virtus.pro will battle AGO, Kinguin, and OpTic at the EPL Season 8 Europe Relegation to claim one of the remaining two spots at EPL Season 9.

Maybe not with hAdji + maybe they can pick EX6 who knows to do some magic stuff on Pro League vs Tier 1 and 2 teams.

X6 is a good pickup for them. Mby scream? Hadji is poopoo

France StickyRice 
ScreaM is probably too expensive salarywise for them, so i guess they will go with hAdji (free and decent international experience with NV Academy and Imperial) + EX6 if he accepts to join them (i guess would be a good choice for him to stay in the international scene)
2018-12-05 21:31

X6 is the best choice for them right now. Hadji is a decent support i guess
2018-12-05 21:32

France cedd 
it's the opposite. ex6 is under contract and expensive, he would have to be bought out from g2 (ex6 just signed a contract a month ago). scream is currently not under contract.
2018-12-05 21:37

France StickyRice 
I thought G2 would release SmithZz and EX6. But yeah fckin Ocelote is greedy as fak so if it takes months to negociate EX6's release out of his contract they might pick another player (but EX6 could agree to play for a lower salary than ScreaM because ScreaM could make money streaming, so to make it worth for him to play for 3DMAX he needs a big salary).

Congrats to a dead team for making it to the pro league. In with ScreaM & hadji and out before relegation next season. All jokes aside though, it's sort of a sad ending for the other 3 players and knowing how hard they worked to get there. Only to throw it away by playing with G2, but understandable when they're trying to make a living out of the game!

ScreaM is not even confirmed. 3DMAX don't have salary big enough for ScreaM but maybe he will reconsider because of EPL spot.
