HellRaisers [2:0] Empire @bo3
(16:8 @mirage, 16:4 @overpass)
The first map was team Empire's pick, Mirage. HellRaisers started in defense. HR lost the pistol round, and only in the fifth one took the first point. After that the initiative was seized by our players, who managed to level the score and came to the side switching, having the minimal advantage. In the second half HellRaisers showed an excellent attack, having started with a victory in the pistol round. Moreover, on the attack side HR gave away only one point — 16:8! An excellent result for the rival's map.
On our map, Overpass, HellRaisers carried out the uncompromising attack — the HellRaisers players were taking a round by round, increasing their advantage. Towards the end of the first half Empire managed to take two rounds, but it was definitely not enough. It wasn't hard to play on the defense side for HR either — they took the second pistol round, lost a force-buy one, but still didn't let the enemy get a comeback.
