The last qualification matches of Group B seem to be one long thriller for everyone involved. Earlier on BIG qualified after a close match against K23, and a couple of hours later, it was MOUZ's turn.
Christopher 'dexter' Nong's troops started well by winning Sangal's map pick of Inferno after overtime. A big blow for Sangal, but the European mix team came out even better on Vertigo. A strong CT side laid an excellent foundation for Sangal to steal MOUZ's map pick back.
Ancient was the setting for the last map. MOUZ went 10-5 ahead on their CT side, but Sangal would not give up on the dream of making it to Rio. Down 13-6, Sangal made it all the way to 11-13 before MOUZ finally put an end to the streak. It all ended with a 1vs1 situation with Jon "JDC" de Castro winning the clutch and securing MOUZ the ticket to the Major and a comeback after missing out in Antwerp.
