BIG brush aside MIBR in Flashpoint 2

The German high-fliers were far too strong for their opponents in this one-sided affair.

BIG got their Flashpoint 2 campaign off to a flying start as they took down MIBR 2-1 in their opening match in Group B. The German side lived up to their billing as favourites as they earned a victory that was much more comfortable than the final scoreline might suggest.

"We were just playing to our strengths," Johannes "⁠tabseN⁠" Wodarz said after the match. "We made the best out of it on the best maps for us, Dust2 and Mirage." MIBR did respond on Vertigo — which has been this lineup's best map besides Nuke —, but other than that there was very little to get excited about from their perspective as they never got into their stride on the other two maps, where BIG were in cruise control.

Florian "⁠syrsoN⁠" Rische opened up the action on Mirage with a trio of frags as BIG took control of the A site in the pistol round to start the match on the right foot. After getting their economy back on track, MIBR responded with two in a row to bring the deficit to a single round, but just when it looked like the Brazilians were starting to find their footing in the game, a quad-kill by Nils "⁠k1to⁠" Gruhne with a Desert Eagle swung the tide back in BIG's favour.

BIG made light work of MIBR

The German team grabbed the game by the throat after that and never let go, winning 13 rounds without response to seal an emphatic victory before heading to MIBR's map choice.

As expected, the Brazilians came out on Vertigo looking a different side, racing to a 5-0 lead on the defence. BIG then picked up the pace put some rounds together, but MIBR tightened up to end the half up by three, led by Vinicius "⁠vsm⁠" Moreira, who had 16 frags and a 130 ADR to his name.

MIBR picked up where they left off and quickly hit map point after a bright start to their T side. With no room for error, BIG rallied in search for overtime and soaked up the pressure from the Brazilians for a while, only to falter when they were two rounds away from an equaliser.

There would be no reverse sweep in the series, however, as the decider map, Dust2, followed the same pattern as Mirage. BIG showed from the offset that they wanted to wrap things up quickly as they dominated the contest against a helpless MIBR side, who once again mustered only two rounds.

BIG won this match, but their game atm. is looking far from a TOP5 level from my perspective, althrough they are showing a little bit of life in them the expectations for this roster are higher I think. As for MIBR it's still a new roster, but it's hard to look for positives imo., they are training with this roster for sometime and I just can't see potential in this roster, maybe I'm wrong. Anyway, the match went pretty much as expected, althrough I hoped for a little bit higher level of the match.

honestly so expected, that vertigo win means nothing to me. trash teams pick it to catch good teams offguard because its not played much in EU so its their only chance and pray to god they can fluke a win on an actual map.
