Map Veto and Selection
Velocity Gaming banned Fracture and Pearl was banned by Revenant Esports. Split and Bind were selected to ban Lotus and Ascent. Haven was the deciding map.
Split began with RNT’s domination as Paradox got a quad kill and pulled a 30 hp 1v2 clutch with his frenzy to win the pistol round. JoshS almost knived Hellf but he turned around at the wrong time and still whiffed all his shots as JoshS won the duel without taking any damage and RNT won the anti-eco with Joshs’ triple kill on frenzy. They won the bonus round as well, thanks to blackhawk’s quad kill on spectre. JoshS again got a quad kill in round 4 to go 4-0. VLT finally won Round 5 as they clutched a 3v5 situation. RNT closed out the half at 9-3, dominating the opponent’s map pick.
Deathmaker got the second pistol for VLT with his triple kill. They won the anti-eco round but lost the bonus. With this, RNT did not drop any more rounds and closed the map at 13-5. Paradox was MVP as his ACS and KDA were 390 and 27/12 /4 respectively.
VLT won the pistol round and the anti-eco round with DM’s 3k but lost the bonus round. Amaterasu got a triple kill in round 4 and round 5 as well to bring the score to 4-1. Round 9 was a thrifty win by RNT and Round 11 was an amazing Ace by Paradox to bring the score to 5-6. VLT closed the half at 7-5.
Paradox again got the pistol for RNT with his quad kill on Ghost. RNT won 4 rounds in a row to lead 9-7. RNT only dropped two rounds to close the map with another retake win at 13-9.
Paradox was the Match MVP as he almost hit half a century of kills in mere two maps.
