Epicenter 2017 — SK Gaming overcome Virtus.pro

1
Today saw the Epicenter 2017 Saint Petersburg event draw to a close, with both the BO3 Third place decider match, and the BO5 Grand Final taking place on the impressive main stage!
The morning saw the event open with the Third Place playoff match between G2 Esports and Astralis. All 3 maps were needed to separate the two teams, with the first 2 going right down to the wire, ending 16-14 with each losing out on their own map picks.

Nuke (16 - 14) Mirage (14 - 16) Inferno (11 - 16)


With barely any time to digest the excitement of the playoff game, we were into the Grand Final! Which saw two ESforce teams do battle at the ESforce hosted event to see who would walk away with the lion's share of the prize pool. With the winner walking away with $150,000 more than the second placed team this was not something to take lightly.

Both teams had a point to prove, with Virtus.pro wanting to show their earlier results were not just a lucky streak, and that they can return to their old winning ways. But also SK Gaming are looking to prove that 'loanee' player Ricardo "boltz" Prass is the correct player to replace Joao "felps" Vasconcellos with, and what better way to do that than lift a trophy at their first event with him?

In the end it could be argued that both teams made their points, but in an epic final that went to double overtime, and required all 5 maps, SK Gaming came out on top. Boltz has only just joined the side, and with this being their first showing, it is scary to think how they may become in the future.

Commiserations to Virtus.pro, thank you for an excellent final.
Congratulations to your Epicenter Champions - SK Gaming!

Mirage (10 - 16) Inferno (16 - 6) Train (19 - 16) Cache (12 - 16) Cobblestone (22 - 18)
