Virtus.pro has won Skopje CS Masters and the 4,000€ first place prize with a 2-1 win over HEADSHOTBG (10-16 on de_train, 16-5 on de_nuke and 16-5 on de_dust2). zNation beat DEFUSE in the third place decider.

In the first semi-final, HSBG faced DEFUSE and scored a relatively easy 2-0 win on de_train and de_dust2 with scores of 16-8 and 16-11. Virtus.pro had a similar match against countrymen zNation in the other semi-final, winning 16-13 and 16-8 on the same maps.

Third place decider took place on de_train and was played in a best-of-one format with zNation beating DEFUSE 16-12 to win a 1,000€, setting the stage for a grand final between two of the favorites to settle who would go home with the first place prize, promised to be paid in cash.

LeX is happy

LeX is back to his winning ways

HSBG started off strong in the grand final, winning their terrorist side of de_train 10-5. The Russians led by Aleksey "LeX" Kolesnikov fought back, but fell short losing the map 10-16.

Second map de_nuke was a whole different story though, with Virtus.pro in control straight from the beginning as they racked up 12 rounds as terrorists despite losing the first two rounds, and tied the series with a 16-5 win, effectively making it a best-of-one.

The deciding map was de_dust2 where the Russians once again came out strong, winning 11 rounds in the opening defensive half. It only took them a couple of rounds to finish the game as terrorists, as they cruised to a 16-6 win, 2-1 overall in the series.

why did they deserve to win? because they got the easier bracket? I'd say znation were the ones that impressed the most in the playoffs
2012-05-13 23:30
impressed you..ok and my comment had nothing to do with znation so why do u mention them? Still they lost their match to bulgarian Gamehost.
