This is it! Bucharest Gaming Week Invitational powered by ESL is over and we have our new Champions. Vega Squadron fought hard but Avangar were prepared, focused and thirsty for glory and the grand prize.
OPENING UP IN STYLE
Avangar came in hot and ready to the Finals, from their last match against Windigo. Vega seemed a bit off in the beginning, giving the opportunity to the Kazakhs to grab an early lead.
8-2 in favor of them in the first 10 rounds and Vega were forced to their first tactical timeout to evaluate the situation and fix their approach.
They definitely had a few serious problems versus molotovs and the Kazakhs exploited that soft spot as much as they could, extending their lead even more.
Vega were able to secure a few rounds, but right after the switch, Avangar claimed a decent pistol round and a second one, slowly marching towards winning the map.
Fool me once it’s on you, fool me twice and it’s on me.
Avangar didn’t allow themselves to repeat the same mistakes, since they managed to win the rounds they needed to secure cache 16-9, the map of their choosing.
IN DOMINATING FASHION
Avangar came in even stronger at the second map. They practically dominated Vega securing the first six consecutive rounds. It wasn’t until round 7 that the "Sharks" were able to claim a round!
The Kazakh squad reached the switch with a 13-2 lead, having a dominated and really convincing performance.
At this point Vega needed more than a miracle in order to come back into this game. Avangar never left that comeback window open, secured the map and they are now the Champions of Bucharest Gaming Week Invitational powered by ESL.
