BOOM sweep Sharks to win ESL Pro League S12 South America

BOOM claimed revenge against Sharks in the South American ESL Pro League Season 12 grand final with a 3-1 series victory to take the title.

BOOM made short work of Sharks in the final ESL Pro League match for South America, making up for an earlier 1-2 loss in the upper bracket final as they swept aside Jhonatan "⁠jnt⁠" Silva and company's one-map default advantage with dominant victories on Vertigo, Dust2, and Inferno, to pick up their sixth title of the year.

An early 3-0 start to Vertigo saw Sharks pull ahead to kick off the series, but a swift response from BOOM had Bruno "⁠shz⁠" Martinelli and company win six in a row to take the lead. A strong showing from Raphael "⁠exit⁠" Lacerda allowed Sharks to fight back for eight rounds in the half, with the 24-year-old boasting a 21-5 K-D as his team swapped to the attacking side.

exit's stellar performance proved to not be enough for Sharks to remain in the lead as BOOM assumed firm control in the second half, taking the pistol round and ensuing anti-eco before falling in the first gun round. However, that was the sole round that would go the way of Sharks as their all-Brazilian opposition quickly gained momentum, closing out the map in fast fashion, 16-8.

yeL ended the series at the top of the board with a 1.34 rating

Dust2, the map pick of Sharks, unfolded in similar fashion, although this time it was BOOM who led early on with a 6-3 scoreline. A tense back-and-forth towards the latter portion of the half saw Sharks reduce the deficit between them and their opponents to a single round, but much like on Vertigo, it was BOOM who reigned supreme following the side swap as they only gave up two additional rounds en route to a 16-9 finish.

A USP-S quad kill from Mateus "⁠supLex⁠" Miranda got Sharks off on the right foot on Inferno, but a Deagle triple from shz saw BOOM answer right back to recover from a 3vs5 situation and turn the tide. Entry kills from João "⁠felps⁠" Vasconcellos and shz helped their side push up to a 5-1 lead before Sharks began to respond, making a comeback effort as they yet again brought themselves within one round of their opposition by the break.

The second half continued to be BOOM's playground as they assumed control, winning the majority of the opening rounds to push up to a 14-10 scoreline. A triple kill from Luca "⁠Luken⁠" Nadotti put Sharks back on the board, but he was denied a 1vs4 ace clutch attempt in the ensuing round as BOOM got back in the saddle, with the team wasting little time in closing out the series with a 16-12 map win.

I expect somewhat of a shuffle in the BR scene. The MIBR team got disbanded and its possible that they are looking towards these teams to rebuild themselves.
2020-09-28 02:37
i dont think boom will give out any players

Well, i dont think that they have a contract/buyout like the Furia guys, so the org really has no choice. Also, maybe the org sees adding one of the legends with good eyes. It can go both ways, some of the players leaving to join MIBR, and BOOM picking some of the legends.
2020-09-28 02:43
The "legends" are washed up They are only good for marketing. Ezz money for the org but it will loose all respect they have

+1. But it is what it is, money moves the orgs and the washed up players might be good enough to compete in the BR scene
2020-09-28 18:18
Why boom players would leave to play with garbage players like kng and trk?

Better deals from a bigger org that aspires to be a t2 team at least. I think that Kng can perform at a decent level tho, even more with a good team. Surely Boom players have him on high regard
2020-09-28 18:27
boom will 100% surpass m1-7br in less than 6 months

+1 This team is basically exit and Luken. When they had meyern it was a decent core
2020-09-28 03:04
meyern is playing really bad lately, i dont see that change tbh
2020-09-28 03:05
Yes, he's playing very bad, but he's very good player Maybe he just need a team who puts him in a good position to recover his confidence back again
2020-09-28 03:51
He's done, traumatized from his mibr spell lol
