Astralis overrun compLexity at iBUYPOWER Masters
A pistol round lockdown and a clean anti-eco conversion saw Astralis take the early lead on the CT side of Dust2, with Peter "dupreeh" Rasmussen's 3K on Long in round four helping the Danes extend their perfect streak to 6-0.
The following round was a tight one, as kills were traded back and forth and compLexity got onto the A site in a 2v2. However, good utility usage from Lukas "gla1ve" Rossander and Emil "Magisk" Reif denied the bomb plant, allowing Astralis to win the round as time ran out.
Peter "stanislaw" Jarguz and co. finally got on the board as they pulled off an A-split and recovered from the subsequent round loss with a force-buy Catwalk push (9-2). However, that was all she wrote for compLexity's T side, as Astralis would lock them out for the rest of the half, 13-2.
Shahzeb "ShahZaM" Khan did his best to keep his side in it, securing the CT pistol round with three frags from the A site, but Astralis struck back with a force-buy in the next round and closed the match out quickly, 16-3.
