The second round of faceoffs is now done on PARI Please 2023, a tournament that has gathered a few of the best teams around today in a lan-based event. As this round ended, Movistar Riders and Eternal Fire lost their chance to reach the Playoffs and try their skills at the $60,000 title prize.
Here, we’ll take a brief look at how both teams did in these two first rounds and why they were eliminated.
The Europeans’ first match was against Made in Brazil (MIBR), and this series did not go as expected for them. As a surprise, both teams lost their map picks – with Movistar Riders losing Ancient by 13-10 and MIBR losing Nuke by 13-11, but still with quite close scoreboards.
In contrast, Vertigo was a much smoother ride for the Brazilians who won the map by 13-8 after getting a clean CT-side. Highlight players for this map were saffee (1.54 Rating) and insani (1.32 Rating).
With the pressure to perform, Movistar Riders started off with an easy win on their map pick, Ancient, against BetBoom. Despite the early advantage, Anubis was a very big mess for the Europeans, a map that BetBoom took home with a comfortable 13-3.
The decider was more similar to Anubis than Ancient, given that BetBoom was able to secure the score advantage right from the start after a 9-3 T-side. After that, the 4 points conquered in the CT-side were enough to keep BetBoom out of trouble. Also worth mentioning that dav1g (Movistar Riders) was the best individual player inside the server (1.41 Rating), but that wasn’t enough to stop sorte’s (1.38 Rating) and s1ren’s (1.27 Rating) good performances as well.
The initial battle on Anubis unfolded with Eternal Fire securing a 13-7 victory. XANTARES showcased outstanding gameplay, reaching the 20 kill mark and a notable 1.65 rating. Despite PARIVISION's efforts, Eternal Fire's coordinated play proved too formidable.
Overpass witnessed a repeat performance, with Eternal Fire sealing another 13-7 victory. XANTARES continued his stellar display, contributing 18 kills and maintaining a 1.53 rating. Despite a valiant effort from PARIVISION, Eternal Fire's tactical execution and individual performances secured their 2-0 victory.
Nuke, on the other hand, saw both teams display remarkable skill, with PARIVISION's Andrey 'BELCHONOKK' Yasinskiy contributing significantly. The map ended in 13-9, setting the stage for a decisive third map.
In the final showdown on Overpass, Aurora secured a decisive 13-6 victory, securing their place in the tournament. Despite efforts from PARIVISION, Aurora's coordinated play and individual performances, especially from Denis 'deko' Zhukov, led them to victory.
Movistar Riders and Eternal Fire faced elimination in the PARI Please 2023 tournament. Movistar Riders struggled against MIBR and BetBoom, while Eternal Fire triumphed over PARIVISION but later fell to Aurora. Both teams exited the competition, missing the opportunity to contend for the $60,000 prize in the Playoffs.
