Acer Predator Masters Season 2 LAN Finals: Mousesports victorious
Mousesports take away the Bo5 series against Flipsid3 Tactics in three consecutive maps, securing first place at the tournament grand final along with $20,000.
After a four day frenzy in the TaKeTv studio in Krefeld, Germany the Acer Predator Masters Season 2 LAN Finals have concluded, with German mousesports taking away the champions title, along with a $20,000 purse. They were matched up against Ukrainian Flipsid3 Tactics in a Bo5 series, where they received a single map lead due to a stand-in on the Ukranian team. Yegor ''markeloff'' Markelov faced visa issues, hence Kirill ''ANGE1'' Karasiow from HellRaisers was asked to substitute him.
Overall, the German powerhouse had a relatively easy time grabbing first place during the grand final, as they managed to rack up two consecutive maps with impressive scores. As the match started out with a 1:0 map lead in their favour, the team only needed another two in order to take the series. It all started off on de_Cache, where mouz demonstrated a stellar CT side, winning 11:4 upon conclusion of the first half. The second half didn't see much of a comeback from the Ukrainian roster, thus the first map concluded at 16:6. The second, and final, map was de_Overpass, where Flipsid3 showed a slightly stronger game, however it was insufficient to close out the map. The Germans started off on the T side, showing a very solid performance, culminating in an even first half, where their opponents had a slight lead of 8:7. As they stepped onto the CT side, F3 had absolutely no answer to their defence, securing merely one round in the second half to mouz's nine. The final map concluded at a 16:9 score in favour of Mousesports.
