AVANGAR win CIS clash vs. Syman to book New Legends Stage spot

AVANGAR have punched their ticket to the New Legends Stage of the StarLadder Major after beating Syman 2-1 in the last Swiss round of the New Challengers Stage.

The CIS derby began on Inferno, where AVANGAR were constantly put on the back foot during the early stages of the first half. Any round that they won was immediately countered with a round by Syman, who raced to a 7-2 lead. Things were starting to look bleak for the Kazakhstani then, but then they upped the tempo and went on a perfect run - ending the half with an 8-7 lead off the back of a Alexey "qikert" Golubev ace.

Syman regained the lead after switching over to the Terrorist side, but it would not last. AVANGAR took control of proceedings once they had money in the bank, bringling the scoreline to 14-9. A quad-kill by Ilya "Perfecto" Zalutskiy with a Desert Eagle still gave Syman's fans some hope, but AVANGAR kept their composure and won two rounds in a row to take the map.

Mirage followed the same pattern as Inferno as Syman were in control during the first stages of the half with a strong offense. But just like on the first map, AVANGAR improved as the game wore on, with Dzhami "Jame" Ali's troops winning seven of the last nine rounds of the half to secure a 9-6 lead.

AVANGAR advance to the last-16 stage of the Major

After the break, Syman showed just why this was their map pick. They assembled a water-tight defense and gave AVANGAR very little room to operate, resulting in a one-sided half and a convincing victory for Sanzhar "neaLaN" Ishkakov's side.

AVANGAR came into Dust2 with fire in their bellies and strung seven rounds together as soon as they had guns in their hands. Syman still tried to take back control of the game but they struggled to contain the pace and the fragging power of the Kazakhstani side, who ended the half in double-digit territory.

Syman looked set to win the second half pistol but could not keep hold of the A site in the post-plant situation. Some questionable force-buys left their economy in shambles and saw them fall further behind AVANGAR, who would cruise to a win early in the second half without even dropping a single round.

Syman played above expectations gj by them I did have anavgar to come out of groups but it feels as syman showed a much better result overall than avangar did, avangar are still so shaky and adren is in a huge form loss gg
