We begin our recap of our teams’ results over the last fortnight by taking a look at the extraordinary run of our Counter-Strike squad at the ESL Pro League finals, in London. Richard “shox” Papillon’s men topped their group with victories over Luminosity and OpTic Gaming before defeating fnatic in the semi-final stage. In the title decider, they faced Luminosity once again, and this time around the Brazilian team prevailed, after five highly-contested maps.
After returning home, the team carried their momentum into online play as they beat both fnatic and Virtus.pro in ECS to get very close to a playoff spot as we enter the final week of the regular season!
Moving on to HearthStone, both Thijs “Thijs” Molendijk and Dima “Rdu” Radu were both in action at the Europe Spring Preliminary. With 128 players in action, upsets are bound to happen, but Thijs stood his ground and finished top 8, this way qualifying for the Europe Spring Championship, from June 11-12.
