Mirage (Mirage was left over in the Veto, Winners: Cloud9, Final Score: 16:12)

Despite losing the first two rounds on their debut under the banner of the North American Organization, Vladislav “nafany” Gorshkov and company bounced back early into the game with some daunting aggression on their offense, thanks to Abai “HObbit” Hasenov who set it up for Cloud9 in the very 3rd round converting it into a round win. It was yet again Cloud9’s Sergey “Ax1Le” Rykhtorov who scrapped the investment put up by the Outsiders for Dzhami “Jame” Ali’s AWP as the 20 year-old Russian picked up the 3 kills to force his opponents into hiding. No team really took off as they traded rounds back and forth with Cloud9 shy of just 1 round at the switch, 7:8.

Coming from the break, Cloud9 were able to go past the deficit along with a bonus round but the heroics from the duo of Jame and Timur “buster” Tulepov defied the odds when they pulled off a 2v4 clutch to stay afloat.

Outsiders started to look destitute and listless as HObbit, Timofey “interz” Yakushin and Dmitriy “sh1ro” Sokolov secured 3 kills each in succession as their reinforcements never allowed their regional counterparts to secure avenue on their attack. Cloud9 were able to pack up Mirage 16:12 and now await for their round 2 opponents to be determined.
