That's the number of places between INDE IRAE and Gambit on the current world ranking. However, being massive underdogs didn’t stop the boys from INDE IRAE from giving the superstars from Gambit a super hard time on Ancient.
In the Bo1 match against Gambit, the #82 ranked team managed to set up a near-perfect CT-side in the first half, which meant that INDE IRAE went into the switch with an 11-4 lead. Unfortunately for the underdogs, Gambit turned up the heat in the second half, where especially Dmitry “sh1ro” Sokolov was playing some impressive CS.
Gambit cemented the comeback win through an impressive defence on the CT-side, setting the score at 16-12.
