It was an all-Brazilian brawl when FURIA and Imperial faced each other in the opening round, and the teams decided to take this Bo1 to the PUG-favorite of Mirage.
"VINI" and "FalleN" were the only Imperial players with a convincing T-side effort, which meant that they had a really hard time winning rounds. On the other side, all of the FURIA players were doing a solid day's work. Noone was below double digits in the kill column at halftime which resulted in a dominating 12-3 lead.
FURIA had a much harder time gathering rounds as they arrived on the side of the terrorists. They did still manage to close it out as a result of the massive halftime lead, but a very solid CT side performance from Imperial gives us hope for them going forward.
