Frag eXecutors have eliminated Ukranian hopefuls DTS in the opening Semi-final two maps to nil on de_nuke and de_inferno.
Frag eXecutors got off to great start on de_nuke taking the pistol round thanks to some clutch play by Jaroslaw "pasha" Jarząbkowski. DTS were able to win quite a few gun rounds, but never able string a few together. In the end the money system got the better of them and they finished the half down 5-10 as the favoured Counter-terrorists.
In the second half, Fx showed some great teamwork and dominant individual talent led by Filip "NEO" Kubski. Fx proved their terrorist side lead was too much to handle for DTS and were able to close out de_nuke 16-6.
de_inferno seemed to follow the same script as de_nuke. Fx once again took the pistol as terrorists and seemed to be playing the match at their tempo. DTS managed to win some gun rounds, but couldn't consistently win back to back rounds which lead to many save rounds. After some interruptions due to a leaked password the game was paused for a minute or two, whatever happened during the pause, really helped as DTS came out fighting and for the first time and won a bulk of rounds in a row. DTS narrowly lost the first half 8-7.
DTS continued their momentum from the end of the first half and won the second half pistol and following save rounds. Kirill "ANGE1" Karasiow was relentless in the opening rounds doing most of the damage. DTS were able to open up and handy 7-1 lead, opening up the score to 14-8 in their favour.
Just when it looked like DTS had de_inferno all locked up, Mariusz "loord" Cybulski won a nice 1v2 - four kill round, and proved once again why he is regarded as one of the games best in a pressure situation. Fx gained momentum from this and forced the game 14-14. Kubski took a leaf out of Cybulski's book and managed to take down four rushing terrorists with three AWP bullets, and setup a nail biting 16-14 win to Frag eXecutors.
Frag eXecutors will now face the winner of Natus Vincere vs KerchNET in the Grand-final of the Intel Challenge Super Cup 7, which is scheduled to start soon. For more information about that game, follow the link here.
