ENCE knock out BIG to join 1-2 pool

ENCE have defeated BIG 2-1 in the New Legends Stage to eliminate the German team (5-16 on Dust2, 16-14 on Train, and 16-10 on Overpass).

BIG and ENCE headlined the first elimination match in the New Legends Stage, starting the series on Dust2. Double kills by Johannes "nex" Maget and Ismailcan "XANTARES" Dörtkardeş gave the pistol round victory to the T-sided BIG who made it 4-0 after winning the first weapon round. ENCE stopped BIG for the first time in the eighth round, with Jere "sergej" Salo and Jani "Aerial" Jussila both getting two kills.

Even though ENCE got to five rounds, BIG finished the first half 10-5 ahead thanks to XANTARES' opening kills in the final two rounds. The German team were relentless on the CT-side, earning ten map points after XANTARES picked up a quad kill in a 2vs4. BIG closed it out with a 16-5 final scoreline.

ENCE came alive late in the series

XANTARES and Tizian "tiziaN" Feldbusch's frags in the second pistol made it 9-7 but ENCE managed to win the first weapon round as Sami "xseveN" Laasanen got a quad kill. Johannes "tabseN" Wodarz and tiziaN clutched a 2vs4 in the following round to reset ENCE's economy. xseveN and Aerial returned the favor in the 22nd round, winning a 2vs4 to give ENCE their ninth round (13-9).

sergej won 1vs2s in the 23rd and 26th rounds to keep ENCE alive and the Finns tied the game at 14-14 with a B-site shutdown. Aleksi "allu" Jalli & company got the last two rounds to steal the map 16-14.

BIG went out with a 0-3 record

Overpass was the decider and ENCE got off to a good start on it, winning the first six rounds. BIG responded with a three round streak, with allu getting an AWP quad kill and sergej pulling off a defuse during a 1vs1 on the B-site. Fatih "gob b" Dayik clutched a 1vs2 in the following round but BIG lost the last two rounds of the half to trail 11-4 at halftime.

After securing the first three rounds on the CT-side, BIG lost two weapon rounds to trail 13-7. Aerial got a triple kill in a 3vs3 post-plant to make it 14-10 and ENCE went on to win the map 16-10. With the 2-1 series victory, ENCE remained alive at IEM Katowice and eliminated BIG.
