BIG eliminate MIBR from BLAST Fall groups
The Brazilian squad was unable to mount a challenge against Johannes "tabseN" Wodarz's men
Staying alive, the Germans will face G2 on Wednesday and fight to secure a spot in BLAST Premier Fall Final. The winner of the match will then face NIP later in the day to crown the winner of the group.
MIBR failed to get going on Mirage as BIG made a fortress out of their CT side. The German team only dropped one round on their way to close the half 14-1, with Nils "k1to" Gruhne proving instrumental for their dominant performance, finding impact with both the rifle and the AWP.
The Brazilians experienced some brief success following a force buy victory, stringing together three rounds in a row, but the gap was too large to close, and BIG comfortably secured the map 16-4.
A different story unfolded on Nuke as MIBR created an early lead following their pistol round victory. Raphael "exit" Lacerda stepped up for his team and was the X-factor that allowed them to close the half with a slight 8-7 advantage.
The CT side gave BIG the opportunity to reassert themselves in the match, comfortably retaking the lead and winning seven rounds in a row on their way to close the map 16-9 and the series 2-0.
