The first game at the Major passed on Inferno. Despite of having a decent buy in every single round, Gambit couldn’t break mousesports’ defense for a while 5-0. Then Gambit finally got their first point and eventually broke mouz’s economy, that helped them to even the score 5-5. Single-handedly winning a few rounds for their team, denis and oskar saved mousesports from losing in the first half 8-7.
The beginning of the second half was noted by an equal fight, because teams’ were consistently winning rounds with a limited resourses. When a 9-9 point was reached, Gambit ended series of force-buys and took the lead, taking away five rounds in a row 9-14. Using Gambit’s aggression for their own good, mouz won the 10th round, but then lost two following ones. As a result, mousesports have been defeated with a final score 10-16.
