Virtus.Pro into The Summit 4 grand final
After getting knocked down to the Lower Bracket in the first round of the tournament by Vici Gaming, Virtus.Pro took their revenge in the last day of The Summit 4 versus the Chinese and will face Evil Geniuses in the grand finals.
Although it’s the first tournament for the renewed Virtus.Pro roster, with Airat 'Silent' Gaziev in the carry position, the Russians have managed to eliminate four out of eight participating teams at The Summit 4 LAN.
Being the ones with the most played games in LA, VP quickly surpassed Mineski in the first lower bracket match up to deny afterwards both Team Liquid and EHOME’s chances for a rematch with OG. Yesterday the Russians steamrolled over the Frankfurt Major Champions despite the fact that Johan 'N0tail' Sundstein got to play his Meepo in the first game of the series. A carry Sven last pick from FNG on top of an Earthshaker shut down the poof terror in 36 minutes.
Second game of the series went in favor of VP from the early stage due to perfect plays from Ilya 'Lil' Ilyuk on his Disruptor. Only 10 minutes into the game he was already on an Unstoppable kill streak while the score board was 10-2 in favor of VP. The Russian pwnage ended in 31 minutes with final 31-8 kill score.
Advancing into the lower bracket finals Virtus.Pro continued their great performance against the ones who initially sent them there. A clean 2-0 victory against Vici Gaming today propelled VP into the best-of-five grand finals, where they will face Evil Geniuses.
