HellRaisers [16:3] PENTA Sports @overpass
For that match Dosia got back into the ranks of HellRaisers to replace s1mple. On this map s1mple and Dosia do similar roles, and thus it wasn't needed to make any tactical shifts. Misha blend into the team just perfectly, and on the attack side ANGE1 and Co. felt rather confident, taking spots one by one. For PENTA this map seemed to be rather unconfident, and that's why we did see the fight itself.
Gained three points today are very important for our team. Every single score at the end of the season can play a big role. There is more information about the tournament in our report.

«We were playing one of our strongest map. It happened so that Dosia was fulfilling his old role and thus there were no problems at all. It is a pleasure to play with him in one team again».

6:16 @mirage, 16:8 @cache
The next rival was way harder. TSM have gained momentum and are going to the top of their conditions prior to Dreamhack Cluj-Napoca. However, our boys were playing with a full squad as well. On the first map, de_mirage, the Danes were favorites; HellRaisers in their turn didn't manage to win important clutch rounds at the beginning of the fight, and as a result the Scandinavians broke away playing on the terrorist side. Dupreeh was especially at his best. After the side switching HellRaisers managed to take only one round: two open kills were got by s1mple, but it wasn't possible to save the map — 6:16.
We saw a mirror game on de_cache. Tomáš "Oskar" Šťastný was in real earnest: his sniper rifle would easily stop the Danes' attack. In the second half s1mple joined him, the hand of whom didn't waver in a few decisive rounds. In general our boys played excellently on the defense side, having taken 12 rounds. After the side switching the game went not that good. However, no problems appeared with taking the 16th round — 16:8.

«The match turned out to be rather hard, as it usually happens after weekends. But, generally speaking, each team took the map they were best prepared for».
This is the third draw of our team at the second season of Acer Predator Masters. There is more information about the tournament in our report.
Cheer for HellRaisers!
