Upper Bracket Finals: Mousesports vs G2
The upper bracket finals series started on Inferno. This was the map pick of mousesports, and it was clear why once the game began. Christopher “dexter” Nong’s side looked like the superior team on all fronts during the map, reaching an early, round lead of ‘8-3’. G2 did close the gap before the second half, ending the half at ‘8-7.’
Mousesports established their mastery of the map during their T-side. They lost only 3 rounds in the second half, closing out the match quickly at ‘16-10’, after what was looking like a close game. Dexter himself showed that even as an in-game leader, he could still top the scoreboard. The Australian IGL ended the map with 25 kills, the most on the server.
The series moved on to G2’s map choice, Nuke. Like mouz, G2 took the early lead in the half. They didn’t allow dexter’s squad to get the momentum going and limited them to only 5 round wins in the first half.
G2 lost control quickly in the second half. Mousesports won the first 6 rounds of the second half, to take their first lead of the match at ’11-10′.
Right after mousesports took the lead, G2 finally answered back in the second half, getting their first win on T-side. With G2 seeming ready to fight back, the map later tied up at ’13-13′. But on the back of great CT-side defence from dexter’s squad, mousesports won 3 straight rounds to close the map ’16-13′ and take the series over G2.
The Final 3
Mousesports are now 8 for 8, for maps played and won during Flashpoint 3. They are the first in the grand finals, and more importantly for the squad, they have secured at least. 1500 RMR points.
G2 will have to beat Ninjas in Pyjamas in the lower bracket to set up a Mousesports vs G2 rematch in the grand finals.
