All HellRaisers' matches on October 25 results:
The first match against Titan ran quite early by espost standards. The captain of the team, ANGE1, was spotted by the author of this article on a DM server at 14:00, and it was seen in the game that HR woke up many hours before the match and would do their best to win it. In addition, the pick was more comfortable for our boys. As a result we saw quite a one-sided game, which HellRaisers would inexorably gain advantage in, rarely giving the French team a reason to take joy. The first half ended with a 11:4 score, and the match itself — with a 16:5 one.
It seemed as though HR got into the zone and should've kept it going to please their funs, but it didn't go this way. On de_dust2 (against the German PENTA Sports team) HellRaisers faced a real disaster playing on the terrorist side. Its name is tabseN. This guy was at his best in this game! Just remember his 1 vs 4 clutch… In general, the Germans have proved again that sometimes they can beat even themselves. A deserved win for them — 8:16.
The marathon of the tournament matches was to be ended by the game against Natus Vincere. The CIS stage leaders hadn't met each other for a while, and thus this meeting had not only the tournament meaning, but a matter of principle. Since CS 1.6 Natus Vincere have been considered de_train as their favorite map. It is seen that the boys are ready to play on «trains», that will give them more chances at the upcoming major tournament. For our team, however, it was almost the first experience dealing with this map. A bad team work and difficulties in communication, obviously, had their impact on coordination of defensive moves. Na`Vi won 11 rounds on the terrorist side and ended what they had started after the side switching — 8:16.
Kirill «ANGE1» Karasiev's comment:
«It was not the most lucky match day of ours. Constant roster changes do affect the team play in terms of playing maps we hadn't paid enough attention to. Sorry for that, it is hard time of changes, but we will come out of it honorably for sure».
