Monday evening was marked for three HellRaisers players by matches for the national teams within The World Championship 2015. Kirill «ANGE1» Karasyov played for the Ukraine team, while Dauren «AdreN» Kystaubayev and Rustem «mou» Telepov were defending the colors of the Kazakhstan team.
Ukraine [1:0] Spain
Ukraine [10:16] France @cobblestone
The match against the Spain team was cancelled due to the nonappearance of the Spanish.
Our boys played against the favorites of the B group on de_cbble, the Frenchest map out of all ones in CS:GO. It is known that this land has been copied from one of the castles in France. The duo from Titan (shox and RpK) together with the trio from EnVyUs (Happy, apEX and KennyS) were the ones to play for the three-color team. The Ukrainians started on the CT side and even won the first pistol round, but didn't manage to get to the series of gained rounds. As a result the first half ran completely under orders of the Francophones. It is noteworthy that apEX was especially good in this game.
After the side switching the situation was changed: our team took the initiative. ANGE1 was definitely at his best in this half and the one to get the first frag. In one of the rounds, he even got first four kills, having stopped in a footstep away from the ace. Even this didn't help the Ukrainians to make up for the lost points in the first half — 10:16.
Kirill «ANGE1» Karasyov's comment:
«We didn't have enough time for the rounds on the defense side, of course. It is hard to make objective conclusions though, since it was just two, though skilled, but mixed teams, and we definitely were lack of the cooperative playing experience. We will keep trying, there are many games ahead!»
Kazakstan [16:10] Poland @mirage
The meeting of the Kazakhstan team has ended with a pleasant surprise. Huge coefficients had been given to the match against the Poles, but neither a status of favorites nor the ping advantage helped them to succeed. The highest impact on the final result was made by the duo of HellRaisers players, AdreN and mou. They got 47 frags together and won many important clutch rounds.
It was especially pleasing to watch them playing on the attack side. The boys were doing so bravely and rapidly, often catching the young roster of the Poland team nodding. Yes, the old-timer players, Neo and Taz didn't play for the red and white team. There were enough well-known names though. Bravo to the guys from Kazakhstan for using the underdog status and taking the necessary points.
Dauren «AdreN» Kystaubayev's comment:
«We were a dark-horse candidate and we did know that we had all chances to win though. We did our best and as a result, an important victory. It was a pleasure to play with our friends from Kazakhstan, thanks to them! And thanks to everyone, who cheered!»
Cheer for HellRaisers!
