defs win WCG Portuguese qualifier
The recent changes in the lineup of the Defining Stars team have proven to be worthy, as this Sunday they defeated K1ck for a spot at the World Cyber Games in Korea.
de_nuke would be the first map, starting off as Counter-Terrorists K1ck were able to stomp on defs by finishing the first half with a 10-5 lead, but defs wouldn't take that lead for granted as they would only allow their opponents to win 4 more rounds before finishing off the map with the score of 16-14.
In the second map, de_dust2, all eyes were on Ricardo "fox" Pacheco as it's on this map where his big green gun shines, but it would be Tiago "dzt" Gonçalves from defs who would show off his sniper kills by hitting some crucial shots.
Playing on the CT side, defs would show good teamplay as most of their bombsite retakes would be successful, eventually they would win the first half with the score of 11-4, leaving k1ck with little maneuver to regain the confidence to win the 12 rounds necessary. As Terrorists defs would win the pistol and the following 3 rounds, K1ck would win one more round but unfortunately defs already had 15 rounds and they would win the following round, ending the match with the final score of 16-5.
Three years later, defs will once again represent the Portuguese colours at the WCG with the following line-up:
Tiago "dzt" Gonçalves
Ricardo "rmn" Oliveira
André "keznitt" Morais
João "DARKY" Ribeiro
João "ehz" Monteiro
With this victory defs will add the WCG to their attendance list as well, with the ESWC spot already won last month.
