WinFakt win digifest Fall
WinFakt have made it back to back digifest wins with a 3:2 win over country rivals aNimus in the final of digifest Fall 2011.
WinFakt's campaign at digifest Fall got off to rugged start after being given a forfeit loss in their first group game after a miss communication between the players and the admins over the process of joining the server once teams are ready. Once WinFakt got going, they easily defeated HIGHVOLTAGE and ArcticMonkeys 16-3 and 16-1 respectfully in their final group matches.
After advancing out of the group stage, WinFakt went up against evilnine from Estonia in the round of sixteen. WinFakt had a comfortable 16-4 16-2 win. In the final game of day one, WinFakt went up against mystic, another Estonian. mystic showed they were keen to show what the home teams were capable of and went on to take a map off the highly favoured Finnish team. The match finally went to WinFakt 16-19, 16-4 and 16-5.
Day two began with only four teams remaining. WinFakt played another foreign team NOM.ESET from Israel who produced a valiant effort but went down 16-11 and 16-3. WinFakt then progressed to the final where they met their comrades aNimus who had fought through the bracket to join them.
The final was scheduled to be played Best-of-three maps, but somewhere along the line got changed to Best-of-five. This seemed to rattle WinFakt who couldn't find an answer to aNimus on the first two maps. aNimus jumped out to an early two map lead after taking de_train 16-12 and de_nuke 16-14.
With WinFakt needing to win the final three maps to retain their digifest crown, they went on their way winning all the battles one by one. Eventually pulling it back to two maps each after WinFakt claimed de_inferno 16-3 and de_tuscan 16-9. This set up a fifth map showdown on de_dust2.
WinFakt's momentum seemed to give them the edge and they went on to win de_dust2 16-7 and ensure they remain digifest champions.
