ESL Benelux Championship Winter 2016 - week 7
This evening, our CS:GO team played against Venko Gaming in the last week of the ESL Benelux Championship. As Venko Gaming was ranked second with only 1 point behind us, this match was going to decide who was going to get the top seed for the offline finals in the Amsterdam Arena.
The map that had been selected was Cobblestone. At the start of the first half on the CT side, rounds were going back and forth between the two teams. But when the score hit 3 - 3, our team decided to take matters into their own hands and closed out the first half with a score of 10 - 5.
When sides were switched, Venko Gaming pulled back with a 4 round win streak, bringing the score to 10 - 9. Our team regained control and won two more rounds after that, making the score 12 - 9. Sadly enough, Monu suddenly had some connection problems, resulting in our opponent claiming another 3 rounds. Our Lions knew how to close out the game by going 16 - 12 against Venko Gaming and thus claiming the top seed for the offline finals in the Amsterdam Arena.
We hope to see you in the Amsterdam Arena on the 26th of November where we will play in the offline finals.
