MIBR through to ESL Pro League Finals; FURIA, Envy advance to next stage

MIBR have qualified for the ESL Pro League Season 10 Finals after topping Group A, only suffering a 1-2 series loss to FURIA. Meanwhile, Swole Patrol were unable to get a map win and have ended the group in last place.

MIBR and FURIA went head-to-head for the first time in their history in one of the final Group A matches of ESL Pro League Season 10 Americas, with MIBR looking to secure victory and ensure their qualification to the LAN finals. If FURIA came out ahead in the matchup, the group's results would depend entirely upon the final series between Envy and Swole Patrol.

The clash between the two Brazilian sides began on Overpass, with Yuri "yuurih" Santos helping to power his side to a seven-round spree to start things off. After MIBR finally got their first on the board, FURIA were swift to answer back, quickly pushing up to a 12-1 lead before a Deagle quad kill from Epitacio "TACO" de Melo allowed MIBR to grab two final rounds. A pistol victory and subsequent eco conversion gave MIBR two additional rounds, but a comeback was not on the cards as a strong performance by yuurih helped FURIA close out their pick in dominant fashion.

MIBR are through to the ESL Pro League Season 10 Finals

MIBR looked to bounce back as they won the pistol round to kick off Train, but a triple kill from yuurih with the Five-Seven helped FURIA immediately reply and claim a 3-1 lead. The two teams began trading rounds as they battled for control, and MIBR were able to claw back to barely edge out a lead at the half. Although FURIA briefly pull ahead with a trio of rounds following the side swap, MIBR defense proved superior as they only gave up one final round on the road to a 16-11 win.

MIBR won their fourth pistol round of the series to start Mirage with a 2-0 lead, but once FURIA had rifles in their hands they were swift to equalize and run back five rounds of their own. MIBR replied in kind to briefly regain control at 7-5, but this time it was FURIA who held a one-round lead as they swapped over to the defense.

FURIA put a ninth on the board as the second half got underway, but a triple kill from Lucas "LUCAS1" Teles had MIBR fight back in the ensuing round to give Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo and company the chance to move up to an 11-9 scoreline. FURIA began to mount more of a defense as Henrique "HEN1" Teles's AWP came to life, combining with Kaike "KSCERATO" Cerato and Andrei "arT" Piovezan to push the map the edge at 14-14. Double kills from HEN1, Vinicius "VINI" Figueiredo, and arT was what allowed FURIA to pull the map over the line, adding two final rounds for a 16-14 victory.

The matchup between Envy and Swole Patrol began with an early brawl, seeing Noah "Nifty" Francis's side initially ahead thanks to a pistol ace from Ryan "ryann" Welsh before Swole Patrol ran the scoreline back to pull ahead 5-3. Unfortunately for Jordan "Zellsis" Montemurro and company, they were unable to get much going from that point as Sam "s0m" Oh and Nifty combined to give up only one additional round on the road to a 16-6 finish for Envy.

s0m made short work of Swole Patrol

Swole Patrol's woes continued onto Vertigo as a two round lead off of a pistol win quickly dwindled, with s0m continuing to find frags to help his team win ten rounds in a row. Swole Patrol were only able to grab one more round in the half for a 12-3 scoreline, although a second pistol victory allowed them to add another two to their tally. Envy swiftly claimed match point with a trio of rounds once they were on rifles, with Swole Patrol only able to forestall their execution for three rounds of their own before Envy closed out the map 16-8.

MIBR have joined mousesports on the team list for the ESL Pro League Season 10 Finals in Odense. FURIA and Envy have advanced to the second Americas group stage, which will play out from November 13-18, while Swole Patrol will play in Relegation as a result of placing last.

Dirty cheating rat doesn't deserve any map wins, the rest of them don't deserve simply for playing with that dirty cheating rat who is so fucking clueless when he's not cheating it makes it even more obvious that at other times he is/was.

Subroza, if you haven't seen the clips I suggest you look them up. CLG got rid of him after the 1 event where he had like 4 different blatant aimlocks happen at the same damn lan event. Some try to say it's coincidence but does coincidence happen so often and in such a short period of time? After some guy comes out of complete obscurity & suddenly hits the pro scene too. He also had an account on cheat forums asking for hacks for a different game using his own damn name shortly before he turned 'pro' the dumb little rat.

Exactly. I can't understand why MIBR have gone into Lucas1 and KnG. If Fallen would stop being the primary awper then WHY THE FUC* didn't they get HEN1 and another better player as a 5th? Furia won this game basically 1)because MIBR was under unnecessary pressure as TACO said in the interview before the 3rd map and 2)Because Furia has waaay more firepower

Yeah. Like I dont thing that kng is the problem, because he is doing well, but i would change kng by hen1 definetly. Lucas only play well sometimes, but maybe Lucas1 and hen1 together would fit well in the team, but we know that this is not going to happen.

MIBR and Furia use of utilities are so poor compared to other Top 10 teams in the world. They should rebuilt the way they approach the game. They depend too much on their skills, which they sure have, but nowadays that is not enough. They are still performing a lot of contact plays with a lower rate of sucess. It's working with lower ranked teams, but i doubt they can keep using these formula in high rated tournaments. They should watch several Atralis games, EGs in some tournaments and Liquid during IGSlam run, their utility use are flawless, thats why they were winning a lot.
