First round of the second set was a reverse of what happened during the first half, seeing OE rushing the tower as Rhodoks while tK quickly set-up themselves for an infantry clash. Yet again, after an intense melee fight, tK came on top, thanks to an amazing Thunderbeu, and picked-up the first round. Second round saw Jarvis getting a beautiful entry kill on DeathAngel, quickly followed by an unfortunate teamkill on Aporta, before he gets traded by Matthew leaving OE slightly stronger after this early engagement. Boosted by some typical OE confidence, Arys, Oodle and Vorn swooped down on what was left of tK, taking no prisoners and staying one round ahead of tK. On the third round, OE tried a similar approach to the first round, except that Matthew got a fantastic headshot on Aporta to unblock the situation, giving a good opportunity for Oodle & coes to rip tK apart close to market. The same market where both teams faced each other’s in the last round, with OE being clearly stronger in the infantry fight, finishing the map in a splendid fashion, 6-3.
Last set started with both teams on the same score, but tK clearly seemed to be in the driver’s seat with the momentum back to their side. To comfort them even more, flag spawned in their favor first round. However, OE showed perfect cohesion when it mattered the most and claimed the first round. With a way stronger economy, OE seemed on point for the second round yet again, tK positioned themselves quite smartly and got the flag spawn in their favor. And unlike what we could have expected, when OE arrived to flag, tK’s infantry pushed them back, pressuring them so much that the whole infantry core of One Eyed crumbled. In the blink of an eye, Turtle Knights was back in the match and it probably was the point of no return for OE. On the third round of the last set, tK pushed OE one more time. And for the first time of the match, OE pulled back, being in a total incapacity to counter the tK’s wave. In the last round, OE tried their best to make the comeback possible, Danate and Oodle keeping the dream alive with one kill each in a 3v6 situation but eventually fell short, letting tK claims the victory, 9-7.
One Eyed 7 – 9 Turtle Knights
