The final stage of qualification for Russia and Ukraine is held within two days. HellRaisers without any special problems defeated the rivals yesterday; will they so easily manage to overplay their today’s opponents?
 
Our guys approached the tournament in a good gaming shape. But even the great team-favorite has to be aware of the opponents. In the Ukraine and Russia there are many strong teams, which are capable to fray nerves of Hellraisers.
At 14:00 Kiev time (13:00 СЕТ) our guys will fight against the most dangerous team – ASUS CyberZone. Before ESWC it named as dAT team, they participated in ESL One Cologne, performed at SLTV StarSeries XI and other online-champs.
 
 
Most recently, ex-player of HR – Dauren «AdreN» Kystaubaev joined their team. The main trump of our opponent – tactical preparation. Captain of the team, Andrew «B1ad3» Gorodensky is one of the most experienced in today’s CIS scene; he has a great experience of coordinating and has a natural analytics’ talent. Teams have had enough time to prepare for qualification games and it means that Gorodensky already analyzed the play of HR. 
 
Due to AdreN’s joining, the team began to show a more dynamic play, less sticking to pre-defined strategies. Therefore, they lost some in stability, but gained much in unpredictability. It may help to create the sensation, but it also may destroy all efforts of showing a worthy game.
 
The ASUS CyberZone played a simple match against A-Gaming, but with hard work overplayed ACG yesterday. On the second map, de_inferno, B1ad3&Co were losing with the score of 2:15, but managed not only to make a fantastic comeback, but to win at overtimes not letting the game to be switched to the third map. Even without that, the confrontation was delayed until late in the evening.
Except the ASUS CyberZone, there are several efficient teams remained to struggle for quota. First, we are talking about the mentioned above ACG. The young five, in which there is none has an experience of playing LANs in Europe, has shown an excellent play against the “oldies”. The lost victory on the second map against ASUS CyberZone – the most annoying defeat in the carrier of all of those players, but if guys will manage to drive their emotions to a constructive direction – tomorrow they may appear a totally different team. Fairly saying, the chances for these guys of getting to France are weak, but why not to try to "wrestle" with the giants? The games of HellRaisers will start on 12th of October at 14:00 Kiev time with the match against ASUS CyberZone. If our guys win, their next match they will play in the Grand-final against the winner of the lower grid.

Surely, we do not write off Russian teams. Though all three teams, playing from Moscow Cyber Stadium in terms of the first gaming day went down to the lower grid, there are still dangerous teams among them. 


By the way, S1mple in his video-blog shared his impressions about the games against Russian teams. 


ACES started the tournament with a crushing defeat from HR, but managed to recover and overplayed the Ukrainians from TBEB, thereby rescuing the chances for themselves for a final triumph. ACES send to Paris their female-roster on CS:GO, which is the strongest in CIS. The male team is not shining brightly at the moment: getting into the final of losers will be a good result for these guys. 


The similar story with the NOPE (Nothing Personal). In the first day guys played two hard matches on three maps: first they lost to ACG and then sensationally left A-Gaming overboard the tournament. Among the other teams, this one is famous by its excellently prepared dust2 and by its strong character (they have managed to bring the match outcome on the map to overtimes having a 1:14 score).


Much less illusory looks the perspectives of another Russian team – es4x. Guys lost to HR, but they showed a worthy game. There are experienced players in this team. AERO, for instance, played in the lineup of zNation on LAN-finals of SLTV StarSeries 4. Among all Russian representatives, es4x looks the most confident one.
