LookingForOrg claim ESEA Premier S38 Australia title
LookingForOrg have won the Australian division of ESEA Premier Season 38 in a gruelling best-of-five over ORDER. The organization-less side went into the series with a map advantage due to coming from the upper bracket and managed to stay in the game after losing the first two maps in overtime.
The win secures LookingForOrg a spot in Season 15 of ESL Pro League. Although tipped to win this season of Premier, Renegades had to forfeit their matches as they are currently in Europe ahead of the PGL Major, making this the first international opportunity for a team outside of Renegades since the end of 2019.
Jared "HaZR" O'Bree played consistently over the entire series and put 105 kills forward over four maps for his side as they battled from being 2-1 in the middle of the series.
While ORDER began the series with a one map disadvantage, they came into the series swinging on Vertigo as the opener. Karlo "USTILO" Pivac stood out on the server as his side led at the half, but the AWP players on both sides saw little success on the map. When LookingForOrg brought the map into overtime, ORDER were able to clean up and take the map 19-15.
Overpass followed a similar pattern to Vertigo with both teams securing a nine round T half that went back and forward throughout. The young superstar Declan "Vexite" Portelli went head-to-head with Matthew "Valiance" Hartrick for kills but led the server in rating. ORDER once again took the overtime win 19-16 and sat 2-1 in the five map series.
On Ancient LookingForOrg won the first CT half in the series to this point as ORDER were unable to put together a convincing T half. The map slipped away for ORDER who were one map away from securing the EPL slot for themselves.
Nuke was the decider for the series as both teams had two maps to their name. HaZR and Euan "sterling" Moore kicked things into gear as their side once again won the T side with nine rounds. ORDER kept the dream alive for a short while on Nuke as they battled back to 13-13 but inevitably fell short, losing out 16-13.
