After a back and forth battle, coL.cs managed to take the first map of de_nuke by the score of 16-14 to open up the Grand Finals of the EG Master’s Tournament. In the second map, the tides shifted as Loaded rolled over coL.cs with relentless inner rushes and amazing play from steno. On the third map of de_inferno, it proved to be similar to de_nuke, where both teams traded round after round to take it to a 14-14 score. Finally, it was coL.cs that strung together two rounds to win the match and the tournament by the score of 16-14.
coL.cs will take home $2000 and have secured a trip to China. They will also take on EG at an undetermined time to compete for 5 MSI notebooks.
Update #1: After an annihalation of Finesse on de_dust2, the two teams met on de_inferno. Finesse managed to get out to an early lead, making it look bleek for coL.cs who needed just one more map to advance to the Grand Finals of the EG Master’s Cup. Finesse made the scrore 10-5 at half and prepared to take the victory as they made the score 14-7, however coL.cs wouldn’t have any of it as they buckled down and made their run. coL.cs brought the score to 14-14 and eventually took the lead and the victory by the score of 16-14.
coL.cs will now take on the winner of Loaded and UE. That match is currently underway.
Tomorrow begins the winners bracket of the EG tournament that has been running all week long. coL.cs has managed to dominate the field by losing only a total of 8 rounds in the 3 matches that they’ve played against recess, net6| and diu9u.
coL.cs joins Loaded, UE and Area51 -or- Fnesse (that match has yet to have been played) in the winners bracket, making for a very interesting and competitive day of action. In the first match for coL tomorrow, they will take on the winner of Area51 and Fnesse. That match still has not been played, however we expect it to be played early tomorrow.
The teams will be playing for the chance at $2,000 for first place along with a trip to China, as well as the chance to play EG for 5 msi notebooks. The matches are set to begin at 3:30PM EST, with coL’s first match beginning at 5:00PM EST. HLTV’s WILL be provided for the finals.
