mousesports beat G2 to win cs_summit 5
MOUZ won the fifth cs_summit in a grand final marred by Finn "karrigan" Andersen’s mid-series departure. The Danish in-game leader had to leave to the airport after his MOUZ won the first map in overtime to catch a flight to Ukraine where he will get a visa in order to make it to Moscow later this week for EPICENTER. mouz, who already showed up to Los Angeles, California, with Niels Christian "NaToSaphiX" Sillassen standing in for Özgür "woxic" Eker, managed to get the best of G2 using their coach, Rejin, as their fifth, to keep their tournament streak going after victories at CAC 2019 and ESL Pro League Season 10 Finals.
Three kills by Nemanja "nexa" Isaković on the CT-side pistol round of Mirage got G2 ahead on MOUZ’ pick, but they were unable to follow it up as karrigan and company were successful in a forcebuy play on B. Robin "ropz" Kool hit 10 kills after the first four rounds, with 3-1 on the scoreboard for his team, and was off to a hot start. The two teams then traded rounds, but several failed attempts on the A site brought it back within one, 5-6, but a loss to an eco kept G2 behind, with mouz going on to win the half 9-6.
G2 tied it up before the first gun round in the second half, but both teams settled into an even 12-12 as the first map started to hit critical rounds. It was finally mouz who were able to get ahead, with both ropz and David "frozen" Čerňanský over 100 ADR, but G2 brought it back to a tie in the thirtieth round to push it to overtime. After a 2-1 CT half, MOUZ were able to close out Mirage on the attack, but as soon as the map ended karrigan packed up his gear and left to the airport.
An A take by G2 kicked Vertigo off, with the Franco-Serbian side able to increase their lead to 4-0 after the first gun round, this time after planting the bomb on the B site. With Rejin standing in for karrigan, G2 quickly took the reins of the map and started to steamroll their opposition. Up 9-0, François "AmaNEk" Delaunay secured a 1vs4 afterplant clutch on A, the site that G2 had hit over and over again, adding insult to injury. mouz managed to take one round in the first half, but a 1vs1 afterplant clutch by Kenny "kennyS" Schrub in the second pistol round pushed the final to the decider.
MOUZ were not able to build momentum despite winning the T-side pistol round on Train as G2 got back on track, winning the forcebuy. Chris "chrisJ" de Jong and ropz got a second round for their team with doubles, which got mouz back in the game as they went on to take five rounds on the attacking side. A triple by NaToSaphiX helped MOUZ win the second pistol round, but they were unable to follow it up against G2’s five Galils. The map took a dark turn for the French team, however, as they kept hitting a wall against the CTs, eventually losing to MOUZ, 14-16, letting their first chance at victory with this roster slip away.
