MIBR and FURIA secure wins in ESL Pro League opening matches

MIBR made short work of Envy with a 2-0 victory to kick off their ESL Pro League Season 10 Americas campaign, while FURIA defeated Swole Patrol with a 2-0 win of their own.

The ESL Pro League Season 10 Americas group stage kicked off in Burbank, California, seeing MIBR take on Envy and Swole Patrol face off against FURIA.

Although Inferno was Envy's map pick, the Brazilian side of MIBR made it look their own as an opening salvo of nine rounds had Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo and company dominating their opposition early on. Double kills from Noah "Nifty" Francis and Bradley "ANDROID" Fodor gave Envy their first inroads on the offense, helping their team to three rounds in the first half, but a second pistol round win following the side swap had MIBR swiftly closing things out with a 16-5 victory.

A strong performance from kNgV- helped MIBR power through Envy

A similar start to Mirage saw MIBR up 4-0 before Envy began to contest, with the North American roster putting up two rounds before MIBR extended their lead to 8-2. A resurgence towards the latter portions of the half allowed for Envy to further close the deficit to 9-6 before securing a pistol victory following the side swap, giving the team their first lead of the series as they won five rounds straight to narrowly pull ahead 11-9.

Envy didn't remain the front-runner for long however, as FalleN and Vito "kNgV-" Giuseppe's double AWP setup began to tear apart Envy's attempts to enter the bombsites. Just one additional round went the way of Nifty and company as the Brazilian side once again took firm control of the proceedings, closing out the series with a 16-12 map win.

Swole Patrol started their series against FURIA with a 2-0 lead on Inferno courtesy of a pair of 1vs2 clutches by Jordan "Zellsis" Montemurro, but a stellar individual effort from Andrei "arT" Piovezan and FURIA's aggressive style allowed the Brazilians to reply back with a six-round spree. Swole Patrol managed to notch four additional rounds, but arT kept his side ahead 9-6 as he closed out the half with an ace.

A pistol victory following the side swap was converted by FURIA to take another four rounds in a row, with Yassine "Subroza" Taoufik grabbing two quad kills to help Swole Patrol fight their way up to twelve rounds. The comeback effort was not enough however, and FURIA were win four final rounds to close out the map with arT having 33 frags to his name.

arT helped lead his team to a 16-12 victory on Inferno

Swole Patrol once again took an early 3-0 lead as FURIA's map pick of Vertigo got underway, but the Brazilian side were the ones who emerged victorious from a back-and-forth trading of rounds to end up ahead 9-6 at the half. arT and company extended their lead with a pistol round victory for an 11-7 scoreline, but a strong performance by Jaccob "yay" Whiteaker helped Swole Patrol win four rounds in a row to allow his side and steal the lead at 12-11.

A pistol buy combined with an A ramp push by FURIA was what allowed the Brazilians to halt the streak, with Swole Patrol only able to win one additional round before FURIA closed out the series with a 16-13 map victory.

I hear the drums echoing tonight But she hears only whispers of some quiet conversation She's coming in, 12:30 flight The moonlit wings reflect the stars that guide me towards salvation I stopped an old man along the way Hoping to find some old forgotten words or ancient melodies He turned to me as if to say, "Hurry boy, it's waiting there for you" It's gonna take a lot to drag me away from you There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do I bless the rains down in Africa Gonna take some time to do the things we never had (ooh, ooh) The wild dogs cry out in the night As they grow restless, longing for some solitary company I know that I must do what's right As sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti I seek to cure what's deep inside, frightened of this thing that I've become It's gonna take a lot to drag me away from you There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do I bless the rains down in Africa Gonna take some time to do the things we never had (ooh, ooh) Hurry boy, she's waiting there for you It's gonna take a lot to drag me away from you There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do I bless the rains down in Africa I bless the rains down in Africa (I bless the rain) I bless the rains down in Africa (I bless the rain) I bless the rains down in Africa I bless the rains down in Africa (ah, gonna take the time) Gonna take some time to do the things we never had (ooh, ooh)

Hong Kong was never free... the Brits never even allowed them to vote for their leader... don't be brainwashed easily by the western media. In saying that, yes, under China, they will under authoritarian leadership. But bottom line, HK was never free...

the point is that British never gave them democracy. Meaning, they NEVER have democracy in the first place. Yes, probably there are less state/government intervention or supervision under the Brits, but when thse mobs are demanding 'democracy' explicitly, it NEVER existed in the first place. Is it that hard to grasp? I do not know why these HKers thinking Brits were the hero. You guys are not. You guys are the colonizer. In fairness, you guys have done a very good job and they probably would not be where they are today without you colonizing them. But obviously, you guys also get something in return (it's not an altruistic endeavor). Now, flag checks out, please don't ride on your high horse and stampede all over peasants like myself while sipping a cup of tea and having shortbread biscuit.

pretty sure this would change with media/internet today, as much more people are aware of this occurring because of that. HK will be much more free if they werent being controlled by china, im sure you agree. btw why so salty? idk why ur insulting me, you seem to be angry.
