mousesports progress in Flashpoint upper bracket over BIG

BIG have dropped to the lower bracket, where they will take on Sprout in a domestic matchup.

mousesports have advanced to the Flashpoint 3 upper bracket semi-finals following a convincing win over BIG (Mirage 16-5, Nuke 16-11), securing at least a top-six finish at the Regional Major Ranking tournament. Christopher "⁠dexter⁠" Nong's team are set to face Astralis in the next round on Sunday at 18:00 for a spot in the upper final.

With the second consecutive victory, the European side have continued an impressive run at the tournament. They have yet to lose a map after they also beat fnatic in convincing fashion in the previous round of the upper bracket, with all of their players looking in good form, averaging a 1.20 rating or higher across the four maps they have played so far.

mousesports secure a second convincing victory at Flashpoint

In the second upper bracket quarter-final series, BIG picked Mirage for the first map and quickly found that they had bit off more than they could chew. mousesports had the opener under absolute control, putting together a supreme defense on the back of a couple of key plays from David "⁠frozen⁠" Čerňanský early on in the first half before a second pistol round win spelled the German team's quick demise.

Johannes "⁠tabseN⁠" Wodarz & co. put up a better fight on Nuke but still were on the back foot for most of the map after a forcebuy back-and-forth ended with mousesports finding the edge. BIG struggled for momentum until late in the half when they salvaged the defense with three consecutive rounds and switched over just one behind, but another forcebuy win put dexter's men back in the driving seat, and mouz claimed the second map 16-11 and the series 2-0.

they look great right now. However the skeptic in me is waiting for the inevitable drop-off that is coming. Love to see the squad working more as a unit, when Dexter first arrived it looked pretty bleak.

This. 100% this. You have to give him some credit, he's been improving steadily (in Flashpoint, a LOT). Australia to Europe is a huge skill change, so hopefully he'll continue to perform well and show people why mouz chose him.

Its not about the skill change, dexter was always good, its just that he needed time to adapt to the food, weather, society, and the government there

yeah they look probably like the most stacked team with regard to firepower right now, an even more important is, the variation is pretty small compared to other teams

The whole team sucks right now. TabseN only good for ecofrags and syrson was good for 1 tournament. About Kito and Tizian we dont need to talk, they are obviously not made for t1 games. And Xantares mostly carries them and when has a bad day Big lose to 95%

They are still making a lot of stupid decisions, which against better teams might cost the matches, but good W for them here. BIG made even more mistakes, + they don't even look like a team anymore, like what happened to the chemistry? the teamplay? It seems gone.
2021-05-20 14:05
IF k1to will continue with these performances he will be gone sooner than later. I don't know about roster locks (is it still a thing?), but big can't afford to have 3 very solid players and 2 very weak players. Tizian is weak for a long time (some say support, i dont buy that, but w/e), but k1to is teeeerrible lately.
