Virtus.pro send mousesports packing in Budapest

Virtus.pro are through to the grand final at the V4 Future Sports Festival after securing an upset victory over mousesports in just two maps.

"We are still confident whether it is NiP, mousesports, or MIBR." Janusz "Snax" Pogorzelski had already hinted after the victory over the Swedes that this was a different Virtus.pro that we were watching, that something had changed within the team, who have been away from the limelight for a long time - their last Big Event being BLAST Pro Series Istanbul 2018, exactly a year ago.

No-one knew exactly how they would perform once things got rough, but they certainly passed this test with flying colours, dispatching mousesports - the highest-ranked team in attendance and the heavy favorite for the victory - in little over two hours. For the entirety of Mirage, we witnessed the Virtus.plow mode again as mousesports were outplayed and outsmarted by the energetic Poles. Inferno was a much tighter affair, but Virtus.pro kept their composure, even when mousesports were enjoying their best period of the game, and capitalised on a crucial mistake to run away with the game.

The Polish team came out with all guns blazing and took control of proceedings almost from the offset on Mirage. It was a performance reminiscent of the old days for the Polish side, who ran all over the defense, a 1v2 Michał "snatchie" Rudzki clutch in the final round rubbing further salt into mousesports' wounds and setting the score at 12-3 - a disastrous scoreline for Finn "karrigan" Andersen's charges, especially considering that they had won the pistol round.

Snax led Virtus.pro to a convincing victory over mouz

More misery was to come for mousesports, who lost the second half pistol following a timely flank by Snax, who delivered his best performance on LAN since February 2018. That would up being the final nail in mouz's coffin as Virtus.pro continued their dominance by claiming a 16-3 victory.

mousesports looked livelier on Inferno, their map pick, and this time managed to put together a string of rounds after winning the pistol. However, Virtus.pro tightened up and gradually took the upper hand, ending the half up 9-6 following some great late rounds by Michał "MICHU" Müller.

Virtus.pro further added to their lead following a successful B hit in the pistol round and followed that up with the next two rounds, bringing the scoreline to 12-6. Once mousesports had money in the bank, the complexion of the game changed immediately: the European mixture assembled a watertight defense and lost just one of the next eight rounds to restore parity at 13-13.

It looked like mousesports had the game under control, but then a small misstep while defending B proved costly and gave Virtus.pro some renewed momentum. karrigan's charges still tried to push for overtime, but a trio of kills by Snax in an A execute sealed the deal for the Poles, who look to be slowly on their way back to prominence.

This is from Elige’s ama Did the team initially think the TACO for Stewie2k trade would be beneficial? Reports indicated TACO left by his own choice, and many thought Stewie's addition would cause the team to lack a supportive element. Did liquid think this as well or did you all think Stewie would make the team better? We picked him up because we believed he was the best choice for our team after TACO + zews told us they wanted to leave. I don't believe in supportive elements. Anyone can do "support" and I think it's just random talk to put any more emphasis on it. We do whatever roles that we need to and whatever is best for the team from what we have from our players. I knew that Stewie would be a really good player, but personally I thought it might be tough since as a team we were mentally not as good and with the loss of zews I thought it would be tough without him, but Stewie has been an amazing teammate since he has joined. He builds us up and has really great leadership qualities that have helped us so much since we have started playing

How many times do we have to tell y’all.. support player ain’t a real thing. It’s just a label given to the bots on the team
2019-09-22 15:40
thats not exactly true. Support role is overated, but look at what happened when TACO left MiBR, Deadfox left HR, Styko left mouz etc. Support players ARE important
2019-09-22 17:27
That isn't true, it definitely exists, but it still isn't an excuse to frag below your IGL.
2019-09-22 17:42
>pro players : support roles are very important on a team >random scrub on hltv who's probably dmg : support ain't a real thing if you think support players aren't a real thing you're probably really bad at this game, not aim wise, but you probabky have no clue what's going on

phr is almost always on bottom of the scoreboard and I know he can do much better, when he will be back to his AGO form VP will be even stronger

Snax knew all the strats. Mouz is a team with 3 young Players.. the will Choke less and less when time goes by
2019-09-22 15:42
chrisJ or karrigan should go to Faze,it`s looking like Faze are suffering cuz they don`t have good IGL and mouz needs more firepower

in the past in golden years of VP , they usually win vs top teams , and loose to unknown opponents. They was bootcamping before this event , so they have last shoot. VP have to step up , or at the end of the year they will disband the team.
