EnVyUs reach the Semi-Final
The matches of the group stage of the SL i-League StarSeries LAN Final keep going. The next in turn was the strife of two strongest team QuestionMark and EnVyUs. The game ran in the BO3 format. A winner would get a slot in the semi-final. In 15 minutes before the match teams chose a list of maps by the crossing method. After spinning a coin the teams in turn cross out maps from the list. The teams chose only one map out of three remaining ones, and the last map becomes decisive in case when the teams play the first two in a draw. Map drafting:
The fight started on the de_mirage map, which had been chosen by QuestionMark. They, not having lost a single player, demonstrated a spectacular pistol round and confirmed the result with a series of gained rounds [0:5]. A considerable touch of fortune let EnVyUs change the score [3:5]. The teams were taking away the initiative from each other, but in the end the Danes were the ones to have the advantage [6:9]. The second pistol round ended in QuestionMark's favor again, but a successfully implemented force-buy round and problems with the economy of the rival allowed the French to level the score [10:10]. The “wings” did not stop until the end of the game, but EnVyUs turned out to be stronger [16:14].
