Esports News – Perfecting their back to back win, Astralis successfully defends their title against MIBR in a 2-0 victory at ECS season 6 grand final. The tournament was supposed to be MIBR’s first major win this 2018, but Astralis crushed their hopes on Inferno and Overpass.
The first map, Inferno, was Astralis’ map pick. Coincidentally, it was the same map that cost Astralis the group match against MIBR. The winning team executed their 2-0 lead on the offensive side but lost an anti-eco round when Nicolai “device” Reedtz was cornered by MIBR near the B entrance. It was a chaotic team fight, but Astralis took control of the game afterward and managed to take a 6-2 lead.
Gabriel ‘FalleN’ Toledo of MIBR led his team’s recovery by pulling off a 1v2 clutch in the fifth round and by picking up an ace in the 11th round, but Astralis still dominates half of the game with an impressive quad-kill by Peter “dupreeh” Rasmussen inside side B. Astralis then won five rounds and reached their map point with two key kills inside side B. MIBR’s Marcelo “coldzera” David still clutched a 1v3 to extend the game and reset Astralis’ economy, but Emil “Magisk” Reif saved the day with quad-kills.
The second map, Overpass, is an odd pick by MIBR. It’s the team’s weakest map on CSGO as they have never picked this at any tournament and only won one of their last four games on this map at major events. Many expected that it was a tricky surprise prepared for Astralis, but MIBR started slow and lost the first three rounds.
Astralis is now playing on the Counter-Terrorist side and won the pistol round followed by an anti-eco to take the lead for the first time since the game begun. Their fantastic run gave them the 15-11 lead. Device continued their winning streak by clutching a 1v2 with a Scout and USP to keep his team’s momentum in the game. Astralis ended the game with a strong T display, leaving MIBR with no money and economy to fight back.
