Astralis Scoop Group C

Astralis have come out on top today, as they cleaned up the ELEAGUE Group C final 2-1 over their rivals in the grand final, Counter-Logic Gaming.

Astralis took home two maps, with CLG claiming just one, and the scores looked like this:

  • Astralis 16-7 CLG (Mirage)
  • Astralis 16-19 CLG (Dust II)
  • Astralis 16-11 CLG (Overpass)

Astralis have now advanced to the playoffs and have put themselves in a better position of winning the huge $1.4 million tournament.

Pundits have been saying that Astralis are the keen favourites going into the playoffs and many of the CS:GO Predictors are expecting a Danish win, and they certainly looked that way in the gruelling 3 map Final, after big-hitters Nicolai “device” Reedtz and Peter “dupreeh” Rasmussen smashed CLG to pieces on the first pistol-round.

Astralis then continued to keep up the hype they were expected to bring as they dominated the first half of Dust II despite the overtime win from CLG.

However, the Danish side weren’t fazed and they swooped into the final map to try and come out victorious. And they did just that. A strong B-Site execute on the second pistol round equalised the score at 8-8 and a nerve-wracking 1v2 by Finn “karrigan” Andersen on the first gun-round propelled the score more towards the 16th round for Astralis.

They finished Overpass with a bang, winning 16-11 over their North American rivals.

 

The scoreboard for all three games looked like this:

Astralis K-D +/- ADR Rating
 dk Markus “Kjaerbye” Kjaerbye 76-53 +23 89.6 1.35
 dk Nicolai “device” Reedtz 76-58 +18 100.5 1.21

 us Tarik “tarik” Celik 47-65 -18 71.4 0.76
 ba Faruk “pita” Pita 51-69 -18 69.8 0.76

 

In the next 7 days, we’ll see huge games in Group D as Fnatic, FaZe, Dignitas and the North-American TSM will all play to compete for the $1.4 million event.
