HellRaisers [0:2] Team Dignitas @bo3
(2:16 @mirage, 10:16 @overpass)
The first battleground turned out to be the mirage map. HellRaisers started on the attack and immediately lost the pistol round, having not managed to hold on during enough period of time at the bomb side. Then the Danes managed to take the unbelievable series of rounds, having presented only two points to our boys before the side switching. ANGE1 and Co didn't find the thread of the game in the attack. Having switched the sides, HellRaisers didn't realize the pistol round again. Team Dignitas have used the situation without any difficulties and closed the map with a score of 16:12 in their favor.
Then teams continued playing on overpass, having the same statistics, HellRaisers started on the attack and lost the pistol round, while the Danes began their winning series again. The complete 14 rounds in a raw by Team Dignitas on the defense side is something unimaginable. Only one point was taken by our boys in the attack, but it turned out to be not enough. When ANGE1 and Co took the defense side, the game went up, and the round started to come onto their account. Emil Ahundov did please us with the excellent ace! It seemed as though our team was about to make a comeback, but that series was broken at the 10th round — two good attacks on the plant by Team Dignitas and the victory is given to them. The final score of the second map — 10:16.
HellRaisers take the third place at the GO: Champions League tournament and the prize of $5,000.
Mikhail «Dosia» Stolyarov's comment:
«Recently we have beat Dignitas on LAN, but now we are at home and the ping does have its impact on us. The game was for reaching the final and was very important for us. Probably, it also came into play and we played rather stiffly and didn't let ourselves do anything extra».
