HellRaisers [2:1] E-frag.net @bo3
(9:16 @dust2, 16:14 @cobblestone, 16:7 @mirage)
HellRaisers started the first map, which was dust2, on the defense side, and the beginning could not be called successful. HellRaisers would not manage to force the game to the rival, and a few lost key rounds had a big impact on the score. In general, the Bulgarian team felt rather confident on the attack side and would not make serious mistakes. The side switching was carried out when the teams had quite a neutral score of 9:6 in E-frag.net's favor. HellRaisers would not manage to find a strategy for the rival on the attack side though — our team did not take the lead and, as a result, lost the first map, having taken only three rounds in the second half.
On the second map, HellRaisers started on the defense side again. Having lost a pistol round and the first buy-round, HellRaisers were losing out in 5 points, but in the second buy-round they got a victory. After that they had managed to take two rounds in a row before the initiative was seized by E-frag.net. The Bulgarian team, having found gaps in the rival's defense, tried to get as much points as possible — at the side switching the score was rather frightening for HellRaisers — 11:4 in E-frag.net's favor. On the attack side HellRaisers got the second wind and confidently took five rounds in a row, after that a small round exchange was carried out, which allowed to level the score in the match — a temporary draw was set at the 13:13 score. A final dash and HellRaisers won the second map.
HellRaisers started the third map on the defense side the third time in a row, and again it did not run successfully — the Bulgarian team took a pistol round and started to break away, but in the ninth round a turning point happened. HellRaisers managed to get a point in that round and started a winning streak, that would last for 11 rounds and gave HellRaisers considerable advantage. After the side switching the speed of the game did not change — E-frag.net unsuccessfully tried to build their own game, while HellRaisers kept taking points. The final score is 16:7 in HellRaisers' favor, who continue their participation within the qualifying stage of DreamHack.
