mTw have successfully defended their ESL Pro Series Nordic title by defeating fnatic 2-0 in tonight's prolonged final for season two.
The match counting as the final for ESL's Pro Series Nordic season two continued tonight, after being on hold for more than a month. Starting on the Terrorist side on de_dust2, mTw quickly discovered what stroke fnatic last time the two sides played, as Oliver "minet" Minet lagged out several times, due to DDoS attacks. Once the match was resumed, mTw saw fnatic running in a much higher gear, leading to a Swedish 11-4 score at half time.
Winning the pistol round was the initial kick starter for mTw, who had a long way back, to just tie the match. The Danes did not let much come fnatic's way and with just two rounds in hand, when mTw had reached match point, fnatic bought what they could, only to be denied an edgy win. This lead to a 16-13 victory for mTw, winning 2-0 overall, counting in the 16-13 win on the first map, de_nuke, played more than a month ago.
"I'm happy to have defended our title and it's nice to do it against a team like fnatic. However, I think it's sad that we had to wait a month to finish this event, and I am worried about future online events because of these kids.
With that being said, I'm looking forward to the new season, which has already started. Hopefully we can win yet another title." - Danny "zonic" Sørensen told HLTV.org after the match.
mTw hereby defend the title they won in 2009, defeating fnatic 2-0 in the season one final, which took place at Inferno Online in Stockholm, Sweden.
