mousesports surpass Windigo 2-0; advance to DreamHack Tours playoffs

mousesports bested Windigo on Overpass (16-11) and Nuke (16-6), securing a semi-final match-up against AVANGAR.

Group A's decider series kicked off on Overpass, witnessing a strong start from mousesports' defense. The initial pistol went their way, and after a brief upset on Windigo's first rifle buy, the European mix continued amassing rounds, stringing together eight in consecutive fashion. Kamen "bubble" Kostadinov and company managed to soften the blow by an additional three, concluding their T side with a 4-11 deficit.

karrigan spearheaded Overpass with a 1.31 rating

Valentin "poizon" Vasilev and Yanko "blocker" Panov ensured that Windigo walked away with the second pistol round, as both players secured two USP-s frags, creating room for a comeback. A spectacular 1v2 clutch from Finn "karrigan" Andersen in the following round marked mousesports' first success of the latter half, but it did not manage to impact the CT economy, as the defenders persisted in accruing rounds. Largely thanks to the significant surplus from the initial half, mousesports only had to secure sporadic round victories to emerge on top, concluding Windigo's map pick with a 16-11 victory.

On the second, and final map, Nuke, the Bulgarian quintet commenced with two back-to-back round victories on the defence. As soon as rifles were seen in the Terrorists' hands, however, the dynamic shifted significantly. Windigo simply seemed out of their depth against Özgür "woxic" Eker and company, as a whopping eleven consecutive rounds fell in favour of mousesports. Much like the initial half of Overpass, the underdogs were able to conclude their defence with a slight consolation in the form of two of the final rounds, resulting in a dominant 11-4 T half for mousesports.

chrisJ had a stellar showing on Nuke, yielding him a 1.61 rating

The European mix proceeded to witness success, now on the defence. A solid showing from Chris "chrisJ" de Jong and David "frozen" Čerňanský in the second pistol round placed mousesports that much closer to victory, but a force buy from Windigo upset the momentum. This was followed up with a triple kill from Viktor "v1c7oR" Dyankov, extending Windigo's round count to a total of six. While a valiant comeback attempt was made by the Bulgarian roster, mousesports refocused in the concluding four rounds, wobbling the T economy and subsequently closing out the series with commanding 16-6 score on Nuke.

2019-05-18 20:33
Maybe what you expected didn't happen today, but mousesports played so well as a team today, with karrigan too hitting shots (especially one deags) and the variations in A site push in Nuke T side are so impeccable that windigo got outstratted like hell.
