HellRaisers [3:0] RoX.KIS @bo5
(2:0 @Ghost Town, 1:0 @Murovanka)
The first map was Ghost Town, on which HellRaisers started in defense. The beginning turned out to be quite rushed — both teams made mistakes, which led to the chaos in the first minute of the match. Nevertheless, very soon the players understood what was going on and managed to take the planned positions. A tactic of HellRaisers turned out to be stronger — they were firmly holding their positions and thanks to that they took the first point. The attack was fast, as usual — HR seized the control over the map, having clutched the rival from the two sides and won the second half.
Everything ended on Murovanka — both teams decided not to drag it out, and a few minutes later after the beginning of the match a rough fire-fight took place at a base. RoX.KIS were pushed out from their own positions, which let HellRaisers take the lead by the number of tanks and finish off the rival.
HellRaisers [3:0] Kung-Fu @bo5
(2:0 @Ruinberg, 1:0 @Steppes)
The final rival at the qualifiers was team Kung-Fu, with witch our guys had already met in a regular season of WGL. The first map was Ruinberg, and it's rather hard to say for whom that pick was the most convenient. On the one hand our guys showed a very solid defense and high-quality attack, on the other one Kung-Fu did prove their being in the final, too. Nevertheless, in both halves, the kung fu of the HR players turned out to be stronger, so right on the second map a match-point occurred. On Steppes we could classic attack and defense — HellRaisers showed their best play and finished off the rival.
Manager of team HellRaisers Yury «YR» Bukharov's comment:
«The qualifying tournament turned out to be quite interesting. Getting through the play-off bracket we met a few teams of the gold series, the meetings with which showed that we are still in good shape after The Grand Final. I hope that we'll manage to keep it up for the final of the tournament and show our best play there».
