RETAP: EPICENTER Finale | SK Gaming vs Virtus.pro
It was all one Counter Strike Global Offensive Fan could wish as two teams looking to return to the top battled it out in the grand finals of EPICENTER 2017.
Virtus.pro, the surprise team of the tournament, took on a team from SK Gaming via fill-in. It was arguably one of the best Grand Finals in CS:GO history. If you missed it, consider kicking yourself.
A series to remember
Between the rivalry of SK Gaming and Virtus.pro, multiple overtimes and world-class matches from all involved, the St. Petersburg crowd and viewers at home were treated to an amazing series.
On the first map of the series, VP exploded into pole position by riding Mirage to victory. SK responded with a big 16-6 win on the second map, Inferno. At Train, the series was in full swing. SK came back from a 12-3 deficit in the first half and forced the first overtime of the series. They did the business and made a lot of overtime profits.
Game 4 showed that VP also had a lot of comeback potential. Badly let down in the first half and with the series at stake, they went on to a 10-3 loss to Cache to secure one final game.
Cobblestone, the final map of the day, was neck and neck the whole time and had to be decided in two overtimes, with SK emerging victorious.
The Star and the Substitute
Of course, Marcelo “coldzera” David had a strong day with 130 kills and a 1.27 rating, but the man in the Immortals jersey was arguably the most important player of the day. Ricardo “boltz” Prass had 114 kills and tied with Filip “NEO” Kubski at 1.16 for the second-highest rating in the match.
In any case, SK should be confident that the youngster can contribute to the team by becoming a permanent member.
