The final was a tense, lengthy affair. Half time came with AVANGAR slightly ahead at 8-7, but a strong counter-terrorist showing from them led to a solid 16-13 overall victory.
Map 2, Inferno, was a dominant showing from forZe, however, ending their first half 10-5 up, leaving the second half as a formality. AVANGAR weren’t going down easily though, and confidently brushed aside forZe 16-6 on the decider, Dust II. A combination of well-thought-out tactics and clutch performances from individual players, including buster and Jame, led to AVANGAR’s 2-1 victory, showing the world that they’re able to get back on track after a heartbreaking loss.
All eyes now are on the Copenhagen chapter of the BLAST Pro Series, beginning on 2nd November 2019, the final event before the Global Final in Bahrain.
