HellRaisers [0:2] dignitas @bo3
(10:16 @cobblestone, 14:16 @overpass)
HellRaisers started the first map on the defense side, that is thought to be weaker on Cobblestone. In the first half, we could see a rather equal battle of two teams — none of the rivals would make serious mistakes, and the game would run at the highest level. HellRaisers, managed to implement the advantage of the stronger side, though not in the best way — the teams had changed roles at the 9:6 score in HellRaisers' favor. In the second half the Danes showed a very strong defense, and gave HellRaisers a chance to take only one round. The final score of the first map is 16:10 in dignitas' favor.
The second map mostly looked like the first one — HellRaisers started on the defense side, and both teams were showing an equal play. The Danes took the first pistol round, but HellRaisers managed to seize the initiative in the buy-round and took 10 points in the first half that is considered as a good result for Overpass. Having taken the attack side, HellRaisers managed to take the second pistol round, but lost the first buy one, after which dignitas started their winning streak and leveled the score. 12:12, a temporary draw and round exchange, a winner of which was the Danish five — the map ended with a 16:14 score in their favor. The final score of the match is 2:0 in the dignitas team's favor, who gets a ticket to Dreamhack Leipzig.
Kirill «ANGE1» Karasiev's comment:
«We've made million mistakes, due to which we've lost. Our weariness and lack of trainings had its impact. We had managed to play only 2 prac games with Zero before the game. It is hard, actually, to play important official matches seven days in a row. Though we have been boosted in terms of experience and are setting ourselves for the Minor now».
The team's coach, Sergey «lmbt» Bezhanov's comment:
«Our mini marathon is over. The main task is completed. We've made it to where we had to. Unfortunately, we did not manage to complete this task, despite the fact that in most cases we had the advantage, but could not implement it. As a result, we've got enough time to get ready for the European Minor, and our main task now is to get stability and to learn not to get lost in situations, when we are in the lead. I want to give my thanks to everyone, who was supporting us these long 7 days, and especially for you very soon I will write a blog on this. Thanks, everyone!»
