The grand final of one of the largest CS: GO competitions is finally here, and we now know who will be playing for the biggest share of the ESL Pro League Season 7 $750,000 prize pool
Na’Vi paced themselves going into Dust II with a polished 9-6 T side to open up the series. Once they won the second pistol round thanks to a one-vs-three clutch from Denis “electronic” Sharipov, it seemed as though they’d take map one. As soon as Liquid reached their buy rounds, they ended up completing a 12-6 comeback that eventually gave them Dust II. The story on Inferno was different, Liquid started off with an 8-0 CT lead. A win in the second pistol round gave the North American side enough confidence to comfortably finish off the CIS powerhouse’s tournament run with a win on Inferno. Surprisingly, Na’Vi’s Oleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev actually had an average game, while his team’s fragging was subpar compared to Liquid.
Astralis absolutely dominated FaZe Clan in their semifinal series. The Danes were in control throughout both maps, and it was actually a pleasant surprise whenever FaZe won a round. Astralis were doing so well that FaZe just had fun and went for absurd strategies a few rounds before their inevitable defeat.
With the results now set, we’ll be looking at an intense final match in just few hours from now. Who will win? That’s what we’re gonna find out soon.
