The day started with not the best match against TSM. The Danes failed the beginning of the game: they were worse both in shooting and tactic. But, suddenly, we saw a crucial point, which HR didn't manage to cope with. SoloMid turned on the best performance mode and started to play aggressively and bravely. It worked against HellRaisers. The final score is 5:16.
After a short break HellRaisers tried the strength of their old fellows from Flipsid3 Tactics. B1ad3 and Co. showed an unconfident defense in one of their best map, de_cache. HellRaisers would often win clutch rounds and beat the opponent in tactical micro-moments. In the second half, Flipsid3 Tactics did find the areas of weakness of HR's defense, and markeloff was remembered for his good 1 v 4 clutch. F3 even managed to comeback, but three key rounds did come to our team — 16:13.
On the second map of the CIS derby, on de_cobblestone, HellRaisers won way more confidently, having easily taken 10 rounds on the counter-terrorist side and not less successfully continued the game after the side switching. We should mark the excellent play of the team's stand-in, s1mple, who on the second map had a 24:11 statistics. The final score of the second map is 16:7. Three points for HR!
The game day was ended with the late match against NiP. By the game of luck, NiP were playing this de_cobblestone for the fourth times in a row. Usually the constant practice of one map does help, but it seemed as though the Swedes didn't have neither enthusiasm nor potency by the match with HR. Our boys celebrated a fast and confident victory with a 16:2 score.
Kirill «ANGE1» Karasiov's comment:
«Today we banded together for a small boot camp with a new roster, where the boys went from the airport to. Jetlag and new computers brought us many troubles in the first game with TSM, but afterwards we managed to win all games and bring a good series of three maps. It is such a pleasure to play with such motivated and charged-up people».
Cheer for HellRaisers!
