HellRaisers [2:0] E-Frag.net
(16:10 @overpass, 16:10 @dust2)
Today HellRaisers played their first match at the play-off stage of the CS:GO Champions League Season 2 tournament. The format is classic elimination, so there is no right for a mistake. HellRaisers' rival was the Bulgarian E-Frag.net team — not the hardest team, but with their own unrepeatable style of the game that a team needs to adjust to.
The first pistol round on the first map, that was de_overpass, ended in E-Frag.net's favor, but the followed force-buy by HellRaisers leveled the score. After that there was a long rounds exchange — none of the rivals could get a noticeable advantage in rounds until the end of the first half. The second half was more single-valued — HellRaisers took the pistol round and started a winning series of rounds, having ended the map with a 16:10 score in their favor.
On the second map, de_dust2, the events would run even faster. Having started on the attack side, HellRaisers showed an outstanding level of shooting with pistols and thus took the pistol round which was followed by one more gained round. Only in the third round E-Frag.net managed to give a fight, but they didn't manage to come forward. HellRaisers were in the lead during the whole game — almost in every round they would read the rival's game and got the needed score. As a result it brought its result — 16:10 on the first map and the final score of the match is 2:0 in HellRaisers' favor.
