Esports News – AVANGAR continues their winning streak this 2018 CSGO season after defeating Kinguin at Hellcase Cup 7. They ended the game with a 2-1 victory (16-14 on Mirage, 8-16 on Train, and 16-12 on Cache).
The first battleground, Mirage, is AVANGAR’s map pick. They won the CT pistol at the beginning of the game because of Alexey “qikert” Golubev’s triple kill. Kinguin hit back right after with a three-round win, but AVANGAR called back with another three-round win to take control of the game. Succeeding that, both teams simultaneously filled their tally with points, but Kinguin eventually saw a narrow lead of 8-7.
The second half of the game gave AVANGAR an opportunity to take the lead once again, scoring 10-8 after a successful pistol and anti-ecos. Kinguin won four rounds to have a tally of 12-10, but AVANGAR was able to prepare their defenses carefully, winning five consecutive rounds to hit the map-point. Kinguin tried to take the game to overtime but failed to do so after AVANGAR’s Aidyn “Krizzen” Turlybekov executed a triple kill in a 2v4 post-plant situation.
Kinguin found their balance back on the second map, Train. Wiktor “TaZ” Wojita and the team started the game as Counter-Terrorists on their map pick and dominated the first half of the game. But it was short-lived as AVANGAR finally saw an opportunity for qikert to carry out a triple kill. In the second half of the game, Kinguin picked up their first pistol of the series and completed a subsequent anti-eco. It was a good start for them. AVANGAR tried to gain one more advantage before the opposing team closes out the map, but Kinguin’s Karol “rallen” Rodowicz collected the rest of the scores.
The decider round culminated on Cache. Kinguin started the flame by retaking the A bombsite from AVANGAR to win their CT-pistol, turning the score to 2-0. AVANGAR then built up their economy and managed to win three rounds together, but Kinguin answered their call with a successful pair of rounds, lifting the tally to 4-3. Neither of the teams backed down. AVANGAR lost only two more rounds before finally securing a 9-6 lead, courtesy of Timur “buster” Telepov’s impressive performance at a 1v2 post-plant situation. Kinguin, now as the Terrorists, equalized the score after winning the pistol round.
On the 11th round of the game, AVANGAR planned a good defensive strategy, forcing TaZ and Kinguin to call a tactical pause. Kinguin still managed to win two rounds to earn an 11-14 lead, but AVANGAR closed out the map at 16-12.
