GamerLegion move on to Moche XL semis over OFFSET

GamerLegion bested OFFSET in a three-map series (Dust2 12-16, Inferno 19-16, Overpass 16-4) to advance to the semi-finals at Moche XL.

The series began on GamerLegion's pick, Dust2, with the favored team getting off to an early lead as Terrorists despite losing the pistol round. The score was soon even at 5-5, however, when Renato "stadodo" Gonçalves's 1v1 and Paulo "pr" Silva's triple helped fend off a few A attacks from the European mixture.

The half got away from Kévin "Ex6TenZ" Droolans's team, who could only secure one more round before going over to the defense with a three-round deficit. Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom's 1v3 heroics in the pistol round allowed GamerLegion to make up the disadvantage and retake the lead, but they were unable to hold on to it after Francisco "obj" Ramos stepped up with a quad-kill.

GamerLegion move on to the semis, where they'll go up against FURIA

The Portuguese mounted a dominant offense on the back of the action, giving up just one round as they closed out the opening map 16-12 following a couple of successful B splits.

Inferno followed and GamerLegion were once again the ones to get off the line more quickly after winning the second round off doubles from Tim "nawwk" Jonasson and Kevin "HS" Tarn, which led to a six-round streak. The two teams then started going back and forth, which meant a comfortable 10-5 half in favor of ScreaM & co.

When the sides switched, OFFSET once again won the pistol and this time survived the following anti-forcebuy, clawing back from the deficit round by round until they took the lead. With their backs against the wall at 10-12 and with just pistols, GamerLegion turned around a 3v5 to return into contention for the map and the series with four in a row. They couldn't finish OFFSET in regulation, as Tiago "JUST" Moura put up two massive plays to force overtime, but they escaped elimination after going 4-1 to push the series to the decider.

When it came to Overpass, GamerLegion seized control immediately on the defense and never let go. A 12-3 half set them up for a quick victory, as they only gave up the first round of the second half before closing out the series 16-4, 2-1.

“identification with one's own nation and support for its interests, especially to the exclusion or detriment of the interests of other nations.” - if you want it more correctly it is nationalism towards CS:GO

The word you want to say is Patriotism. If you want a definition of Nationalism (disguised for Patriotism) I'd recommend you to search for it. Here's the result of a quick Quora search: quora.com/What-is-the-difference-if-any-..

Wow, the more you know, thanks for the lesson, really appreciated, but well, correcting - goodbye patriotism... - yeah, I would accept things, offset are the number one team in Portugal so I will support them but not as much as probably other teams, Giants will most probably disband after fox statement on Instagram or players are gonna change, in my honest opinion, rmn should get out, not because he is bad but because he is wasting his talent there, he should go either to offset or another team that matches his talent, for Just I gotta say he is officially one of the best in Portugal, if not the best

GG Very well played from Gamer Legion. Offset could've taken this match but they lack international experience. Good to see them grow

Not true, the thing is that either Giants fanboys are hidden under a rock with no internet or the rational ones support all portuguese teams. Btw, the guy who commented above me is 100% correct
