FRIENDS advance to the next stage of The Summit 6
The first stage of the European qualifiers The Summit 6 has reached the end. During three days — from October 11-14 — 8 teams from Europe and CIS were fighting for a single slot in the next stage of the qualifiers for the tournament in California. The crucial countering within the Single Elimination brackets was reached by the squads F.R.I.E.N.D.S. and Vega Squadron.
The first map made a little splash among the Vega Squadron’s fans. The academically-calibrated fn’s game, shown by him during all matches of the qual-stage was changed for a streak of silly deaths. A weak game of the Vega’s «center» has dramatically affected the rest team. The players from F.R.I.E.N.D.S. were dominating on all the map’s areas — Anti-Mage was tremendously gathering pace, while the Morphling from VS was enviously keeping an eye on the expensive artefacts of the opponent’s Main Carry. A complete chaos on the map didn’t last for too long. At the 16th minute, Vega Squadron fell from grace and gave up.
The second round for the «Sharks» was sizes better, but their wounds and raw’s after the first map were still hurting. In addition to that, F.R.I.E.N.D.S. have shone with another original strategy, and went on with an excellent team-play. The squad from CIS left the rival no chance to get back on track, pressing down the players from Vega Squadron, still weak after a smashing defeat.
A confident victory on two maps grants F.R.I.E.N.D.S. a well-deserved ticket to the following stage of the European quals for The Summit 6. In a clash for a slot to the contest’s LAN-finals they will accompany Team Liquid, Virtus.pro G2A and Ad Finem.
