BERLIN (dpa) – The current best brave team in the world comes from Russia: Gambit Esports have managed to win the Masters Berlin. In the final, the team defeated their opponents from Team Envy from USA 3-0 (15:13; 13:11; 13:9).
“It’s an incredible feeling,” professional Igor “Redgar” Vlasov said in an interview after the final. “We didn’t expect it to come this far, but we did. It feels great.”
Cheer in the pulp
Before the valiant Russian players could take the winner’s trophy in the golden rain of the fountains at the Verti Music Hall in Berlin, they had to show all their skills. There were three close duels to be booked at the end, always with a better ending to Gambit.
According to Redgar, the key to success was a win at 13:11 in Map Haven’s second. “We thought we would lose this match because it’s not our map. I was expecting a final soon.”
Fnatic capitalizes on winning maneuver
As the Masters winner, Gambit is eligible for the World Championships in December. A fact that British esports organization Fnatic can look forward to, too. In fact, only the two best teams in the Circuit Point rankings for Europe, Africa and the Middle East will definitely be in the World Cup – after the Masters, they are Gambit and Acend.
Thanks to the Russians’ qualification, Fnatic rose to become the third best team. Fatek thanked him on Twitter with a sincere message: “I love you,” said in the direction of the maneuver.
G2 Esports, Team Liquid and SuperMassive Blaze are still hoping for their chance at the World Cup. They will duel with five other teams in October in the last-chance playoffs for the last place in the World Cup.
