Playoff spot secured in Powerligaen
We claimed three victories and one defeat this week as we finish second in the group game in Powerligaen.
Our esport-army did the job this week, as we had a fantastic Monday followed by a defeat on Tuesday. Andreas ‘blaq’ Elversøe explains how the games went out:
– We came off to a bad start against CPH Flames and were struggling 10-2 in rounds. But we managed to clear our heads and turn it around. The players took responsibility and made some individual calls which changed the game, and when we changed to the CT-side we dominated every round, Elversøe explains. We beat Copenhagen Flames 16-11, and went on to beat Atlando 16-6 in a much easier battle:
– You would like to think that we would be weaker at the time because we haven’t had time to practice with our new guys HECTOz and Fr0slev, but it’s two amazing players who’ve raised our level from the very first moment. We showed that once again against Atlando, as it became a walkover on dust2 where we won 16-9, our in-game leader tells.
The last game on Monday was against Ambush who is a very good Danish team – they’re 17. in ESEA Advanced right now. In a close game we won 16-12 after some rounds where our players won their rounds being one man against 3 and one against 4. On Tuesday we met Maknitude and lost 16-9.
– Their team consists of players with a lot of experience, and we didn’t know much about them, so we didn’t manage to take control and adjudge while we played, Elversøe explains.
The team has worked a lot with communication to secure better teamwork, but this week our guys tried to focus on more aspects of the game:
– Everybody were ready from the start and took responsibility. We played until the very last second of every round which made it easier to play together while we communicated a lot too. We have to work on our gameplay as we haven’t had much time to prepare for the tournaments with our new lineup. I think a bit more practice and structure will make us even better, Elversøe says.
He has been a central figure on our team for a long time now, and he hopes to claim the overall victory despite the tough competition in this year’s Powerliga:
– We finish second which means we can only meat the top team STEPxHYDR in the final, so that’s a good thing as I think Copenhagen Flames, STEPxHYDR and AGF will be the competitors for the overall win. We’re set to meet Flames in our first Playoff game, so we’ve got the chance to beat both of the strongest teams in the league. That suits me quite well, Elversøe says.
We play against Copenhagen Flames this evening at 6 o’clock and you can follow the game on Twitch >>>
