mousesports put down ATK to advance to quarter-finals
The North American team's run in Odense ends just before the playoffs at the hands of the European squad, who put down Aran "Sonic" Groesbeek & co. at the last hurdle after ATK fought through the lower bracket with impressive scalps in North and G2.
Having tested the waters on Vertigo twice before in the aforementioned series victories with varying results on the map, ATK chose to pick it again into mousesports. It quickly became apparent that this time would go more the way of their encounter with the Frenchmen, as Finn "karrigan" Andersen's side quickly established dominance on the CT side despite a pistol round loss.
Unable to put up consecutive rounds, Johnny "JT" Theodosiou & co. switched over to the defense with only four, and their fate was sealed when David "frozen" Čerňanský's triple decided a close second pistol round, with mousesports picking up a clean 16-5 victory on the first map.
Dust2 looked a little more even in the first nine rounds as some individual brilliance from Josh "oSee" Ohm, Ricky "floppy" Kemery, and Sonic put ATK at 4-5, but mousesports ran away with a 9-6 half, in the end, and were eager to end things quickly. With a pistol round in the bag, the favorites reached double digits and went on to put up a perfect CT side for a swift 16-6, 2-0 victory.
