mousesports dismantle North to book Berlin Major spot

mousesports took down North to top the Europe Minor and punch their ticket to the Starladder Major.

The upper-bracket final began on Inferno, where David "⁠frozen⁠" Čerňanský opened mousesports’ account with a swift pistol quad-kill on the defence. The European mixture extended their lead to 5-0 briskly thanks to a nail-biting defuse from Robin "⁠ropz⁠" Kool following an intense 1v1 clutch against Markus "⁠Kjaerbye⁠" Kjærbye.

North hit back in the next round, but mousesports shut down the Danes instantly in the ensuing rounds on the back of outstanding individual plays from frozen and Özgür "⁠woxic⁠" Eker. A rare blunder from Finn "⁠karrigan⁠" Andersen enabled North to get back into the half with four additional rounds before mousesports were able to answer back at the end of the half to secure a 10-5 lead.

mousesports return to a Major

Contrary to the slow start in the first half, North locked down the second pistol and the following round to keep themselves in the game at 10-7. However, they were unable to completely capitalise on their successes as mousesports overwhelmed the Danes with guns in hand to extend their lead to 13-7. Valdemar "⁠valde⁠" Bjørn Vangså and his squad kicked it up a gear in the face of defeat, narrowing the score difference to just two rounds, but mousesports would not allow the comeback to come to fruition, securing the remaining rounds to close out Inferno 16-11.

The second map headed in the direction of Mirage, mousesports’ map pick, where it followed the same trend as Inferno, with karrigan and co breezing to a 7-1 start on the Terrorist side. The two teams then traded a round apiece before a Jakob "⁠JUGi⁠" Hansen AWP triple-kill set North on the right track. With a foothold now in the game, the Danes locked down a further three rounds to close the distance on mousesports before a 1v2 clutch from frozen in the final round of the half enabled mousesports to head into halftime with a 9-6 score.

North will take on CR4ZY for the second European spot at the Major

North secured a much-needed pistol victory to begin their comeback, but a mousesports force buy in the following round yielded positive results for the European mixture as they went on to post more four rounds on the defence to extend their lead to 14-7. North's offence proved ineffective for the remainder of the map as mousesports shut down the Danes commandingly to take the map 16-7, and the series 2-0, to qualify for the Starladder Major.

People say the same thing about liquid that even tho the org is from USA, most of the players are from random places around the world but live and grew up in the states so imo they are NA America team, but people say that they aren’t because of the last names of the players.
2019-07-20 20:16
People who say that are dumber than Trump, like wtf :D People who grow up and live in the US certainly aren't e.g. European just because of their surname... Whereas players from Slovakia, Netherlands, Turkey, Denmark and Estonia certainly aren't German :D
2019-07-20 20:49
Liquid is a Dutch org, not from the US
