Map 1: Vertigo (Pick : ITB, Winner : Team Vitality, Final Score : 16-11)
Into the Breach got off to a healthy start over Mathieu “ZywOo” Herbaut and company, which saw them take a comfortable 5-2 lead. A couple of rounds back and forth saw Team Vitality fight for dominance over the Brits, thanks to the combined efforts put in by Peter “dupreeh” Rasmussen and ZywOo, the duo who constantly tried to tune their scores on the board for Vitality. The first half went into the favor of ITB’s, which then read 9-6.
Coming back from the break saw Vitality wreak havoc on their assault, infiltrating every piece of reinforcements set up by Into the Breach. A triple kill by Emil “Magisk” Reif helped Vitality round off the scores to 11-11 which was followed by a quad by Spinx who opened up the A-site for business letting Vitality take a lead. Into the Breach looked listless on their defense as Vitality never stopped picking them off Vertigo as the latter ran away with ITB’s pick, 16-11.
Map 2: Anubis (Pick : Team Vitality, Winner : Team Vitality, Final Score : 16-12)
Vitality did win the pistol round on the T side but it was Into the Breach yet again who went up 5-2 over their opponents. Although all of a sudden, everything seemed to be a carbon copy of how things picked up on Vertigo which saw both the teams trade rounds only for Vitality to go 9-6 up in the first half.
Joey “CRUC1AL” Steusel helped ITB square off the scores at 9-9 but the onslaught of dupreeh and ZywOo crippled ITB’s resilience which saw the french side rack up 14 round wins against 10, those of ITB’s. Despite some valiant efforts by Cai “CYPHER” Watson, Into the Breach were just unable to resist their opponents which indeed cost them the Semi-final spot at the Blast.tv Paris Major.
The series was won by Team Vitality 2-1 which did conclude the proceedings of Blast.tv Paris Major Playoffs Day 1.
