ESL India Premiership Challenger #1 – CS:GO comes to an end with Invisible Wings beating the national champions Team Brutality 2-1 in a best-of-three matchup. The game saw some amazing show of skills by the fresh lineup led by Simar ‘psy’ Sethi, Team Brutality however, gave a tough fight and ended up losing to them on cache 11-16 after tying up the series 1-1.
The match began on cobblestone where both the teams were taking rounds back and forth with nothing going right in the favor of the predictions. Not to mention the win of Invisible Wings came in comfortably after their lineup swaps, and with the addition of Akshay ‘Kappa’ Sinkar (formerly one of the India’s top professional athlete of Counter Strike 1.6) in the lineup, Invisible Wings played a devious gamble which was appropriately a good move by taking in an entry fragger as aggressive as him. Team Brutality, however, being down on multiple occasions on all of the maps were able to steal the momentum back in their favor thrice which demonstrated their level of skill and experience of the game.
The grand finals between Brutality and Invisible Wings had no delays whatsoever and the games successfully progressed with no technical glitches even. We could call the matchup to be by far, the perfect game of the event in terms of execution and skill levels.
Players to look out for
Not to forget about the best players in our industry but in the lights of the heavyweights, we shouldn’t sideline some of the emerging talents in the country. The players who came out of nowhere to be some of the most impactful to exist in this tournament were from different teams. Noticing ‘psy’ and ‘Kappa’ from Invisible Wings or be it the young players from West Bengal. ESL India Premiership surely, has been successfully being able to pull out fresh talent and players from almost every part of the country.
Looking at the current lineup of Invisible Wings and their performance in the Challengers #1, we hope they stick to their squad and work on themselves to enhance their skill set even further. The team surely has the potential to compete at international levels. And talking about Team Brutality, the favorite Indian CS:GO lineup of all time, they even need to work more on their consistency and strategy considering they already have some of the top aimers in the country judging by the performance of V3nom boys today.
