Bind: Velocity Gaming win 13-9
Ascent: Noble Esports win 13-6
Haven: Velocity Gaming win 13-7
On Ascent, Noble Esports was looking to turn things around from being down 0-1 after losing the first map in the series. Noble came out strong in the first two rounds with bagging the pistol round and the following anti-eco win. However, Velocity Gaming was not going to let Noble Esports run away with the series. Antidote opened up the round in style with 2 kills and was able to recover an Operator as well. The score rested at 2-1, with a guaranteed round for Velocity Gaming coming up as Noble was restricted to just pistols. However, t1to had some tricks up his sleeve. T1to managed to pick up a Phantom for himself after getting a kill onto Excali who was caught overextending towards the A-Site. The Phantom on t1to allowed him to get another kill onto Vibhor, making it a 3v5. While Velocity Gaming was able to restore the round balance, Noble was able to hang on by a thread and pull out a thrifty round. From there, Noble started taking the game away round by round. It looked like Noble had gotten under Velocity Gaming’s mental, allowing them to pull out Ascent with a 13-6 scoreline with psy leading the charge for his team with an ACS of 284.
