Crack Clan have qualified for this year's World Cyber Games after disposing of Excello 2-1.
With Niko "naSu" Kovanen now fit to play, this looked like a really even match but things did not start well for Crack on de_inferno, losing the first half 10-5. The second period began with Crack looking to get back into the game, levelling the game on 10 rounds, but Excello would never concede any more rounds, winning the map 16-10.
On de_train, however, Crack Clan looked like a much improved side, as they stormed to a comfortable 10-5 result at half-time, playing as Terrorist. In the second half, they controlled the action, winning the map 16-7 to take the game to a third map, de_nuke.
There, Crack began much better as Excello would only take their first round nine rounds into the game. But the former astralis squad showed their coolness and responded with conviction, going into the second half down 9-6. Now defending, Crack proved their superiority, letting Excello claim just two rounds. to win the third and last map 16-8
Crack Clan have now qualified for this year's World Cyber Games event, scheduled for Chengdu, China, from 11-15 November.
