The North Americans from ATK were given a hard task last night. As a last-minute replacement team the two Americans, two South Africans, and one Swede on the team had to face FURIA in the opening round of the single-elimination tournament, BLAST Premier Spring Showdown NA.
The match ended as expected with a clear 2-0 win for FURIA. But during the map of Inferno, it was Michael 'Swisher' Schmid from ATK that stole the headlines.
In a 1vs4 situation, the American player suddenly found himself completely alone on the A-bomb site, while all the remaining FURIA players had gone out to hunt him down. He was so alone, that he pulled through a 10-second defuse to win the round.
FURIA will play fellow Brazilians from GODSENT tomorrow at BLAST Premier Spring Showdown.
