Unfortunately, our CS.GO team takes away only silver at IeSF World Championships 2017, after losing to forZe from Russia 2-1 in the Grand Final (16-13 on Train, 10-16 on Mirage, and 16-10 on Cobblestone).
The grand final of the ~$18,000 tournament taking place in Busan, South Korea kicked off on Train where forZe lead 8-7 at halftime. The russians closed it out narrowly and won the first map 16-13, after a good comeback, turning things around from 13-11 for our boys.
Our guys were able to get seven rounds on the T-side of Mirage—the second map of the series. The boys finished it off on the CT-side in the second half and won the map 16-10, tying the series at 1-1.
The final map was Cobblestone (16-10) where the russians showed more composure and won the series. Overall the guys have achieved their target, (a top three placement) but coming home as champions would have been awesome.
