The Ukrainian team has conquered the championship title of WESG CS:GO EU Finals after defeating GODSENT in the grand-final clash.
It’s all begun with Mirage, when GODSENT decided to use it as their map-pick. The Swedes fastly recovered from a weak start after losing the pistol and strengthened their defense, so they took the lead and gained a double advantage 8-4. A tactical pause helped Team Ukraine to fix some problems with their T-side, and, after that, they reduced the gap to only one point 7-8.
The Ukrainian five took the second pistol, but, after a 9-8 mark, it fell under the pressure of pistol-buy, so GODSENT reset enemy’s economy. Going forward, Fredrik "freddieb" Buö’s team was confidently getting rounds on its board. As a result, GODSENT followed the pace and defeated Ukraine on Mirage with 16-10 in the end.
Overpass, pick of Team Ukraine, was the next map in this series. As a consequence of force-buys going back-to-back, Team Ukraine eventually established themselves on the T-side with the lead in their hands, and that resulted in their victory in the first half 10-5. Later on, Ukraine managed to resist GODSENT’s explosive style and prevailed over them, finishing Overpass 16-12 in their favor.
The match continued on Inferno. Being down 0-5, Team Ukraine answered by a win-streak with the same length, getting a lot of impact from Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev and, thus, evening the score 5-5. Ukraine’s defense remained to be solid, so they went to the T-side with three rounds ahead of their opponent 9-6. Thanks to a pistol clutch from Joakim "disco doplan" Gidetun, GODSENT tied the game 9-9 after anti-ecos, but it wasn’t enough. Another tactical pause saved Ukraine from losing the initiative, so they came back stronger and got the win in this match 16-11.
