Team1 win WESG Ukraine Finals; qualify for World Finals

Team1 overcame djakuyu in the grand final of the WESG 2018 Ukraine Finals 2-1 (14-16 Inferno, 16-11 Train, 16-9 Mirage) to secure a spot at the WESG 2018 World Finals.

djakuyu, a mix of Vega Squadron, Spirit and pro100 players made it to the grand finals of WESG Ukraine, a LAN event held in Kiev, undefeated. In the match that decided who would go to the WESG 2018 World Finals, they took on Team1, another mix team. The two sides met in the opening match of the tournament, where djakuyu took a 2-1 victory, but were set for a rematch as Team1 fought back through the lower bracket.

The opening map of the series was Inferno, where rounds were traded back-and-forth at the start before Team1 stabilized on the CT side, securing a 6-3 lead. Finishing the half with a 10-5 advantage and adding a pistol round to their name saw Sergey "starix" Ischuk and co. go up 13-5, being on the verge of victory. That is where Dmitriy "jR" Chervak hit a higher gear and started pulling things back for his team, eventually tieing things together at 14-14. In the end, Team1 wasn't able to close out the deal, losing Inferno 16-14 to go down in the series.

smike will once again be representing Ukraine at WESG

Team1 secured the T pistol on Train to start 3-0, but jR's double entry with the AWP in the first buy round quickly turned the game around and his side took a 4-3 lead. Key in his team establish themselves on the offensive side was Sergey "smike" Sklyarenko, who managed an AWP ace in round 10, which Team1 built on to finish the half 9-6 up. After the switch, they once again won the pistol to extend their lead, but this time, despite jR having another strong map, djakuyu wasn't able to make a comeback on Train. (16-11)

On Mirage, Team1 took hold of the game early on, with Vladyslav "arch" Svistov leading in the fragging department for his team. The score was 10-2 before djakuyu managed to put together three on the defense, ending the CT side trailing 10-5. Taking another pistol round in the series got them on the verge of victory, and this time, they closed it out fairly simply, 16-9.

The fact that mix teams qualified both from Russia and Ukraine says a lot about CIS scene though. There are no strong single-nationality teams and all the best players end up in Ukrainian-Russian mashups with some Kazakhs, Latvians, Lithuanians and Belarusians thrown in there and there
2018-12-24 02:55

WESG Ukraine team without s1mple OMEGALUL
2018-12-24 07:26
Why doesn't s1mple play in this tournament, its free money for him.
2018-12-24 07:26
You really think he needs money? All he wants is to win a big title that matters, so he can't play tournies with mixes.
2018-12-24 17:15
WESG has a massive prizepool though, and it's filled with (compared to s1mple) shit players. He could make a mix team with his semi-pro friends and make it to at least the semi finals.
2018-12-24 17:32
He gotta stick to NaVi 100% to win anything like a major, so he can't just be absent for a week or so just for making money with "friends". That's not how pro contracts work. They gotta prac all the time when there is no tourney.

is smike toxic or what ? He's been in the scene for a while and still no decent team, just a short stint in HR
2018-12-24 08:43
It's because he never plays without his friend arch and arch is trash.
2018-12-24 09:41
He played in pro100 without arch and got kicked I believe
2018-12-24 11:05
I think he was kicked from pro100 for being toxic, he's a pretty good player though and can hard carry when needed.

Why did Argentina get 2 spots? lol. They could have given Sweden a spot lol
2018-12-24 11:12
it was south america spots though I agree weird how there was 2 instead of 1 considering brazil couldn't participate as they had their own qualifier, Still Sweden could have gotten spots to event from nordic qualifiers but none of teams who played in qualifiers managed to make it through. That said wouldn't shock me if fnatic, nip or even both was invited if they want as there is 4 invite spots.
