9 Pandas, Eternal Fire to face in PARI Please final

FURIA and MIBR go out in 3-4th place after failing to make it past the semi-finals.

seized and 9 Pandas eliminated FURIA in the semis

The stage is set for the grand final of PARI Please following the conclusion of the semi-finals, which saw both Brazilian teams go out as 9 Pandas eliminated FURIA and Eternal Fire eased past MIBR.

Denis "⁠seized⁠" Kostin's 9 Pandas have been the surprise of the tournament thus far after they came into the event as the second-lowest ranked team, topped Group A to make the playoffs, and have now trumped Gabriel "⁠FalleN⁠" Toledo and company in the bracket stage to set up a challenge for the title.

Artem "⁠iDISBALANCE⁠" Egorov deserves plaudits for his performance in both of his team's map victories, which they scored on either side of a 10-13 loss on Ancient. The Russian AWPer powered his team to a strong start on the T side of Overpass, leading 5-0, a lead which they held on to for the remainder of the map despite a late resurgence from FURIA.

The Brazilian side recovered to post five rounds at the break, but couldn't get anything going once on the T side as 9 Pandas ran away with the game, 13-5.

Ancient was a more embattled affair, and an early lead for FURIA allowing them to flip the script and clinch a narrow lead at the end of their defensive effort.

They were put on the ropes early into the second half when 9 Pandas won the pistol round and an early battle for control to briefly lead 9-8, but a phenomenal performance from Kaike "⁠KSCERATO⁠" Cerato gave FURIA the window they needed to clinch a narrow 13-10 win and force a Nuke decider.

The trip to a third map ultimately proved fruitless, however, with iDISBALANCE taking charge of the proceedings again, this time with the help of Anton "⁠glowiNg⁠" Henricsson. The pair established a stalwart defense that put 9 Pandas ahead 9-3 at the break, and that lead was not one they squandered as they closed things out shortly into the second half.

Eternal Fire gave MIBR more of a rough treatment in their series, although Felipe "⁠insani⁠" Yuji kept things close on the Turkish team's map pick of Vertigo. The 19-year-old rifler was the catalyst in posting an early lead for his team, 4-0, but it was one they struggled to hold on to as Eternal Fire brought the scoreline to parity at halftime.

A pistol win and subsequent conversion offered MIBR an early chance to pull ahead after the break, but from that point onward, Eternal Fire dominated. Ali "⁠Wicadia⁠" Haydar Yalçın and Ismailcan "⁠XANTARES⁠" Dörtkardeş repeatedly found opening kills to brutalize the Brazilian team's defenses, and just one more round went the way of MIBR for the remainder of the map before victory was sealed away by the Turks.

As if that brutal end to Vertigo wasn't enough for MIBR, their own pick of Mirage backfired in even more spectacular fashion. They ended up going out of the tournament not with a roar, but a whimper as just two lackluster T side rounds were all that they could muster for the entirety of the map, with Eternal Fire locking in their grand final spot with a dominant 13-2 victory.
