Lyngby Vikings caught the German-side off guard on the opener of Dust2 and secured the first map of the series in a very controlled manner. Sprout answered back by taking Vikings’ pick of Vertigo, even though they were off to a slow start on CT-side. The German-side only allowed NaToSaphiX and company to grab 3 rounds as they switched sides and ended a nearly perfect T-side to equalize the series. It seemed like the Vikings would take the series on Nuke as they stormed to a 3-10 lead on T-side, but as the teams switched sides, Sprout came back from a 6-12 deficit with kressy playing a massive role for his team.
