However, Orbit did pull themselves together and gave fight to HellRaisers. The first half ended with the score of 8:7. The second one started with the defensive side for HellRaisers. The pistol round was taken by our guys again, but the Bulgarians went on developing their game, took the lead and won the first map.

HellRaisers started the decider with the attacking side again. They took another pistol round and a few following rounds, too. The Ukrainian part of the team got an unbilieveble clutch round, after which it was seen that the Bulgarians needed a break. The pause, though, didn't change the outcome of the first half, which ended with the score of 11:4. The second half was carried on with the confident pistol round, which was followed by the not less ambitious for HellRaisers first buy round. Our guys brought the scoreline to 15:4 and confidently did away with the opponent.
HellRaisers made it into the tournament's grand final, and, which is the most important, into the final qualifiers for ESL One Cologne 2016!

(16:13 @dust2, 8:16 @mirage, 7:16 @overpass)
The first map was Dust 2, HellRaisers' pick, which they started on the attacking side. The entire first half was full of round exchanges. Either side wouldn't manage to get a considerable advantage, but both teams performed their best. Closer to the side switching Team Dignitas found a nerve to show a good defense, and Tomáš «oskar» Šťastný even got an ace. 16:13 — not without difficulty, HellRaisers took the first map,
The second map was Mirage where our team started in attack again. Having taken the first pistol round, HellRaisers developed their advantage and got three more points. In the fifth round, however, the Danish team found its play and started to reply, too.

The team switched the sides again at the score of 9:6 in Dignitas' favor. HellRaisers' play on the defensive side didn't run well — they didn't manage to force the rival their speed of the game, which led to Team Dignitas getting the advantage and entering a match point, which they took on the second try. 16:8 in the Danish team's favor.
