Map 1 Nuke (Picked By – G2; Winner – Mouz)

G2 despite having shaky results on Nuke, went for it to open up against Mouz. While G2 got off to a 2-1 start, Mouz got back on the board by putting together a string of rounds. Mouz blew past G2 to get 6 consecutive rounds on the board and post a 7-5 half before moving to their offense. G2 managed to win 3 more rounds before Mouz went on to win the map 13-8. Torzi was the player of the map but putting up 24 kills and 1.64 ratings.

Map 2 Anubis (Picked By – Mouz; Winner – G2)

Mouz and G2 went back and forth in the first half where both teams managed to pick 6 rounds each before switching sides. G2 maintained the lead for a better part of the half before Mouz put together 4 consecutive rounds to level the score. Once on the offense, G2 sailed past Mouz giving their defense no shot as we moved onto the next map. With 22 kills and a rating of 1.71 rating, mONESY stood out as the best player for G2.

Map 3 Overpass (Decider; Winner – Mouz)

Mouz starting on the CT side had a similar to that of Anubis. Overpass being a CT-sided map, had G2 push Mouz to the limit to end the half with 6 rounds each. While the first half of the map would have G2 coming out as the better side, the second half had them flipped on their heads. G2 pulled in a two-round lead but Mouz managed to run through with half despite G2 pulling a few rounds and cutting it close on more occasions than one. Mouz managed to break G2’s economy in the final two rounds and quickly ended the series 2-1 booking a spot in the finals. Brollan without being the flashiest player consistently delivered for Mouz posting 17 kills and a 1.43 rating.
