Sprout beat Movistar Riders; to face forZe in Copenhagen Games grand final

Sprout are through to the grand final of Copenhagen Games after besting Movistar Riders in a closely-contested three-map series.

The first map of the semi-final was Nuke, where Movistar Riders kicked off on the CT side of affairs. A successful pistol round was followed up by an additional two, the latter of which saw an anti-eco ace by Oscar "mixwell" Cañellas. Following the lopsided early rounds, turbulence was introduced into the game dynamic as neither team was effectively able to maintain momentum with that back-and-forth period producing an 8-7 conclusion in favour of Movistar Riders.

After moving onto the defence, Sprout assumed the driver’s seat, kicking their domination off the get-go by securing the second pistol round. Contrary to their opponents’ CT performance, the Germans systematically accrued rounds, seldom giving their adversaries wiggle room. This allowed Sprout to reach map point, eventually locking down the game at 16-10.

The second map, Vertigo, saw Movistar Riders once more commence on the defence. The Spaniards secured a successful pistol plus the next round, but that was followed by a response from their opponents on their first rifle round of the map. An economic upset meant Movistar Riders were able to secure a further three rounds, but retaliation was swift and thick from Sprout, who bagged a 9-6 lead before the break.

Contrary to their CT performance, Movistar Riders were visibly more comfortable on the offense. This was expressed through consistent domination, kicking off straight from the pistol round. The German defence was kept starving for finances, while A site breaches from Movistar Riders meant a steadily waning round disparity. Eventually, the Spaniards were able to close out the map 16-11 to force a decider in the series.

mixwell led the comeback on Vertigo with a 1.70 rating

Inferno concluded the series and it saw to a turbulent start. Sprout secured the initial pistol, but the developed momentum was disrupted come Movistar Riders's rifle round. The Spaniards were able to build a 4-3 lead, looking to extend their position, but the German offense dominated the remainder of the half, concluding their T side with a dominant 11-4 scoreline.

A pistol round 3k from Aitor "SOKER" Fernández opened the offensive half for Movistar Riders, a much needed development considering the deficit at hand. Off the back of that early success, the Ts were able to bridge the gap slightly, but rifles on Sprout meant a shift in power dynamics, despite somewhat of an upset in the succeeding round. Timo "Spiidi" Richter and company clocked in three consecutive rounds after an economic upset was ensured, placing the German defence two round victories from map and series point. In a final attempt to turn the game around, Movistar Riders managed four consecutive rounds, but it was too little, too late, as the Germans were able to close out the final two needed to secure the series at 16-12.

Not really. Just shows Sprout have better teamplay and dont rely on someone like mixwell to carry them to a win
2019-04-20 18:28
kinda funny to see that not even a single player of sprout has a positive K/D ratio while 4 out of 5 MR players have a positive K/D difference lol
2019-04-20 18:28
Vertigo was a huge factor for that though. I dont doubt Movistar lost a lot of rounds just by simply not knowing the map well enough
