Astralis vs NRG
Astralis faced their first real test as they came up against the rising roster of NRG in today’s ELEAGUE Best Of 1 Game. They had to scrape the win on both matches to grab themselves two points in Group C:
- Astralis 16-12 NRG (Cache)
- Astralis 16-14 NRG (Train)
The 50,000~ viewers that the ELEAGUE channel had were going insane when LEGIJA pulled off a No-Scope Double Kill on Train, and NRG looked set to take the win over Astralis, but sadly experience took the better of NRG and they slipped towards the end.
The NRG Roster were showing signs of huge potential, with their new signings – Johannes “tabseN” Wodarz and Nikola “LEGIJA” Ninic – both playing extremely well throughout both games.
Astralis are still being known as the Masters of Pistol Round, and it was one of their most important rounds, tying one of the games up at 10-10 after “device” pulled off an AWP Ace.
Astralis’ strongest player of that game, Nicolai “device” Reedtz came out on fire in today’s game, and was the main reason that they kept their composure and sealed the victories in both games. He grabbed himself a quad kill in the T-Side Pistol Round and even got himself a “4K” in a force round.
Both games were very much open for either team to take the win, with NRG’s “FugLy, ptr and god b” all putting a shift in and winning crucial rounds for the American-based organisation.
