EnVyUs are beginning to brew up something of a winner’s streak in offline events, taking first place at StarSeries XII finals over NiP after their victory last weekend in similar fashion at Gfinity Spring Masters I.
In a game which nearly mirrored the easily won upper bracket final, grand final was EnVyUs’ time to make a statement about their dominanace in the CS:GO scene. EnVyUs cruised to a two map victory over NiP today, technically winning 3-0 due to the best-of-five nature of the grand final.
With major winners fnatic absent from the past two weekends’ offline events, the Frenchmen still faced a tough assortment of teams to defeat in order to walk away with the first place prize of $18,000.
On de_inferno, the Swedish-Finnish Ninjas managed to post up a respectable 9:6 scoreline after starting CT, but they were promptly annihilated by nV’s dominant CT half in which the Frenchmen went up ten straight rounds to win the first map.
de_mirage was even less of a contest than the first map as nV streaked up a 13:2 CT side with great play from Vincent “Happy” Cervoni and Edouard “SmithZz” Dubourdeaux in particular, and then closed out the map with ease after winning T pistol.
After all is said and done, and the curtains come down here in Kiev at the CyberSport Arena, the final standings and prize money distribution are:
1. EnVyUs – $18,000
2. NiP – $9,000
3. TSM – $5,000
4. Titan – $3,000
5. Virtus.pro – $1,500
6. Na’Vi – $1,500
