Gambit sweep BIG to go to V4 grand final

The Germans' adventure in Hungary ends in the semi-finals.

Gambit secured a grand final spot at V4 Future Sports Festival after a comfortable 2-0 sweep of BIG. Dmitry "⁠sh1ro⁠" Sokolov delivered as always with a 53-21 K-D and a fantastic 1.85 rating, severely outperforming his German counterpart Florian "⁠syrsoN⁠" Rische. Johannes "⁠tabseN⁠" Wodarz's boys failed to put up a challenge on Ancient before conceding their loved Dust2 to end the series.

As the first team to secure a spot in the grand finals, Gambit now wait for the result of Entropiq vs Fiend as they'll face the winner on Sunday at 15:00 in the best-of-five title decider.

sh1ro was untouchable on both maps

Gambit's gamble pick of Ancient in the veto worked wonders. sh1ro led the way with 20 frags across the 11-4 half as the CIS squad effortlessly pierced the paper-thin BIG defense over the Central American ruins.

Nicklas "⁠gade⁠" Gade struggled to make a difference on the A bombsite and despite showing improvement in the second half his team was unable to scramble together any sort of comeback. Gambit comfortably closed Ancient with a solid CT side 16-5.

Going into the Germans' home turf of Dust2 Gambit had the opportunity to complete the clean sweep and they delivered. Despite their struggles defending the B bombsite, Gambit still managed to go into the second half with a 9-6 advantage courtesy of Abay "⁠Hobbit⁠" Khasenov and sh1ro.

Facing elimination, BIG gave us a more competitive CT side which almost equalized the scoreline before a crucial loss on round 24 against a force buy destroyed the German economy, opening the doors for Gambit to take Dust2 16-12, ending the series 2-0.

hltv.org/stats/players?startDate=2021-01.. The reason why this is a difficult decision is that, even though ZywOo is 0.04 ahead (which is a huuuge gap, like it or not), ZywOo's stats aren't from the most important stages of big events. Having less maps in playoffs and a low playoffs rating, cost s1mple in 2017. sh1ro's stats are from having played like 8-9 Tier1 grand finals, and playoffs of literally every event, in addition to having 2 MVPs. But considering s1mple vs device in 2019, I'm not sure if that is enough to propel sh1ro to 2nd spot....
2021-11-20 15:45

At least s1mple had 1 big event mvp and like 5-6 evps that year Zywoo has 0 mvp and maybe 2-3 evps this year? That’s gonna cost him

ZywOo would have 6-7 EVPs by now, easily. But yeah, it's difficult. Also, the last 2-3 LANs could heavily influence the situation.

Why would you feel bad then? It's a t2/3 tournament. Why should it be relevant? What's next? Skrim results?

Shiro is more an orthodox awper like device. Less flashy. Simple's game sense is out of the chart, which make hard to copy (zywoo too). But yeah shiro is better awper than syrson. I have no doubt. Syrson is good with smg and scout, better than average awper.
