Case Esports vs TENSTAR

Case Esports and TENSTAR were the winners of yesterday and today they battled each other to become the first team to reach the playoffs. TENSTAR picked Bind and the competition began. Even though the map was picked by TENSTAR, Case Esports dominated the first half by winning 10 rounds in total. They only lost 2 and took control of the game. TENSTAR failed to execute their attacking strategies in the first map of the series. Alexandr "falltw" Chernukhin had a great performance in the first half, grabbing 16 kills and holding a 1.82 rating. The Russian player also had a 321 ACS and a 4 K/D. Yesterday’s hero, Berkant "Wolfen" Joshkun helped him a lot with Chamber in his hands, holding a 1.46 rating and grabbing 13 kills, including 3 first bloods. The Spanish team only needed 3 rounds to win the first map and they did not waste any time. After grabbing the pistol round, TENSTAR looked lost and Case won 2 more to dominate the first map, 13-2. Wolfen reached 18 kills with his great second-half performance and he finished the game with a 1.66 rating.

Case Esports’ pick of the day was Haven. Yesterday, EXCEL picked Haven against them and they managed to hold onto the series by taking their opponent down on Haven. Today, it was their time to pick the map and they started the map by winning the pistol round. Štěpán "Ambi" Beránek stepped up with 3 kills on Raze and Case Esports’ dominance continued in the first half. The Spanish organization grabbed 8 rounds on the attacking side. Wolfen was the key part of them once again with a solid 1.41 rating and 13 kills on Chamber. He uses the early effectiveness of the agent so well that he secured 3 first bloods. Povilas "roxie" Krivelis followed him with 11 kills and a 1.33 rating. Jakub "maniek" Mańkowski’s Sova was not enough for TENSTAR, even though the Polish player held a 1.12 rating and grabbed 11 kills. TENSTAR’s second-half performance was surely better than their first-game efforts but in the end, Case Esports closed out the series after a 13-9 win on Haven. Wolfen had a massive Chamber performance once again with a 1.58 rating and 26 kills. maniek’s Sova continued to keep his team in the game in the second half but his efforts were not enough. The Polish player finished the game with a 1.59 rating and 26 kills.
