If you do not know what titanic endurance, discipline, patience are, or want to learn more about fortitude, then you should turn to BIG. The German team today, being one step away from defeat, showed that you should never give up, and finished the grand final with a score of 3-2 in their favor.
Initially, Extra Salt had the advantage of one card won. On increased morale, the team took over from BIG Dust 2 with a score of 16-14 and the team had only one map left to gain the upper hand in order to take a tidbit from the total prize pool. The situation was aggravated by the fact that Extra Salt won on Dust 2, which BIG chose for themselves. The latter got together and showed an excellent game on Train, which could be decisive. At first, the roster showed good defense, and after the transition, it showed how to properly attack Train. The heat trend in every match continued on all three remaining maps. Train ended with a score of 16-13 in favor of the Germans and the latter had hope of winning the decisive match.
The next in line was Vertigo, which was chosen by players from the German team. The first half turned out to be unsuccessful for them, as Extra Salt were aware of the correct defense, but, having gone over to the attacking side, oSee and his teammates were unable to crush BIG as needed and were defeated, giving BIG the second map.
When the score was 2-2, the teams went to play on Overpass, which, by the way, takes place in Berlin, the capital of Germany. The Germans were able to take 9 rounds for defense and gained a slight advantage. To win the tournament, they had to gain the upper hand in seven rounds and with great difficulty they still managed to achieve what they wanted.
For BIG, this victory was especially pleasant, since it was Extra Salt that sent the German team to the lower bracket in the first match, however tabseN and his teammates can thank the rivals for cheering BIG from the very beginning. The team wrote a beautiful story about how a tournament participant can come to victory in the championship, being always on the verge of being kicked out of the event.
