Moscow Five take WCG bronze

In what ended up being almost a replay of their group stage match earlier on in this tournament, Moscow Five simply demolished NEXT in the bronze game.

The match opened up on de_train where the Russians started off as counter-terrorists, going up eight to zero before losing their firsts round. From that point on Eduard "ED1K" Ivanov's troops never looked back, ending the half 14-1 in their favor. Next half was no different as NEXT was unable to score any rounds, losing de_train 1-16.

After a quick break it was time for de_dust2, where Dauren "AdreN" Kystaubayev's team scored the opening pistol round and went up 3-0. Fourth round went to Moscow Five, but NEXT replied by scoring the eight following rounds. M5 finally rallied at that point with Sergey "Fox" Stolyarov leading the way as they won six straight rounds to end the half 7-8.

Roman "ROMJkE" Makarov chimed in with two kills on their terrorist pistol round and NEXT didn't really even come close until the score was 13-8, but Ivanov's one versus two clutch secured M5 yet another round. NEXT mounted a nice comeback and it all came down to a one versus one in the last round of regulation, where Stolyarov was unable to plant the bomb in time due to zooming to the counter-terrorist spawn for too long.

In overtime the Russians proved to be too strong for the Kazakhstanians who were hoping to score a second WCG medal for their nation after Kystaubayev and Anvar "Anv1k" Nassyrov won silver at the 2005 event in CS:S. After scoring three rounds as the attackers, they finished the match by winning their first round as counter-terrorists.

The bronze game win here gives Russia their first World Cyber Games medal in nine years, as 2002 was the event where M19 managed to win gold. CMAX.gg also managed to place fourth in the 2009 event.

The grand final is currently still live between SK Gaming and ESC Gaming, with ESC Gaming up 1-0 in maps. You can find the live stream for the match on our match page.

2011-12-11 04:26
Imagine mandi in the 3th place...what you would say...haha
2011-12-11 04:31

2011-12-11 04:31
anyway, wcg with 2 top teams and 3-4 teams mid+ level - not interesting.
2011-12-11 09:54
HAHAHAHHAHHAHAHAHAHA, good joke but no, HAHAHA :D
2011-12-11 14:13
fuck you, people nowadays only know how to complain about things... They gave 25k dollars, maybe in more 5 years of Brazilian CS we see a prize like that.
2011-12-11 06:12
vc ta vendo quantos times tops nao foram pra wcg seu fdp ?

M5 should be in the final fosho
2011-12-11 04:23
Obviously, but ...... :))
2011-12-11 04:25
M5 5th in world rank after SK, current ESC, NaVi and fnatic? Very likely :)
2011-12-11 04:24
mouz with zonic now, gonna be tough :D they're gonna overpower the rest in a while.
2011-12-11 04:27
Thats why I put an question mark. Expecting good results from mouz :) want to see M5 vs mouz

2011-12-11 11:07
fnatic always beat m5. only lost a final :)
2011-12-11 11:37
what about lions?
2011-12-11 11:08
oh, forgot 4 lions. then, lions - top7,
2011-12-11 11:36
hahaha, where are your brains?
2011-12-11 10:44
pretty accurate imo. what would you change?
2011-12-11 11:09
next in top15? My top10 (based on results): 1 ESC 2 SK 3 NaVi 4 fnatic 5 M5 6 Mouz 7 Lions 8 ex-ESC 9 WinFakt 10 Anexis/DTS
2011-12-11 11:19
Hmm ok thats a better one but I think the top3 will change for every time the teams play vs eachother. No team beats the other team more than 2 times in a row
2011-12-11 11:21
Good Work M5! And it was also a great match against SK Gaming last night. BRONNNNNZZZZEEEEEE!!!
2011-12-11 04:24
