G2 crush GamerLegion; to Charleroi Esports semis
The Group B decider at Charleroi Esports saw G2 take on GamerLegion, with the first map being Nuke, G2's pick. Starting on the T side, they managed to establish control after an initial period which saw some force-buys traded back and forth (6-1). GamerLegion then mustered a tight round thanks to Hampus "hampus" Poser, and followed it up with two more to make the round deficit just two.
However, the tide of the game shifted after that, with Kenny "kennyS" Schrub and Richard "shox" Papillon taking the reigns and pulling their team out of some difficult situations to streak together five more rounds before the end of the half (11-4). GamerLegion's T-side pistol was quickly shut down thanks to Lucas "Lucky" Chastang who grabbed a double with an incendiary, and after that, it was just a matter of time before G2 closed it out, with the final score being 16-4.
The action then moved to Overpass, where GamerLegion bagged a 3-0 start after winning the Terrorist pistol, only to get shut down by Audric "JaCkz" Jug's AUG 4K in the first rifle round. G2 looked like the better team from that point ownards, with Kévin "Ex6TenZ" Droolans' side claiming only two more rounds before the end of the half, finishing it 10-5 down.
A much-needed pistol round for GamerLegion came down to the 1v1 after plant on A, but didn't go their way as François "AmaNEk" Delaunay took down Ex6TenZ and pushed his side towards a big lead. At 13-5, GamerLegion locked down the approaches to win a fairly clean round, but G2 answered back shortly with a kennyS triple before closing out the second map 16-6, and the series 2-0.
