Titan book semi-final place

Titan have advanced to the ESL Pro League playoffs after seeing off 3DMAX 2-1 (16-14 on de_inferno, 10-16 on de_dust2 and 16-6 on de_cobblestone).

Following the exciting Upper Bracket final between EnVyUs and Titan, Group B resumed on Saturday morning with a Nordic clash between 3DMAX and Copenhagen Wolves, two teams that had failed to win a single map the day before.

With Mikko "xartE" Välimaa and Tom "stonde" Glad putting up big numbers, 3DMAX were able to take the lead in the series following a 16-8 victory on de_cobblestone, where the Finnish side turned in a flawless display on the CT side. The playing field on de_nuke was level, but not even Asger "AcilioN" Larsen's great individual performance was enough to prevent 3DMAX from sealing victory in this match.

Joona "natu" Leppänen's side moved on to the Consolidation Final with hopes of getting back at Titan for the 1-2 defeat on day one. The Finnish side came within touching distance of winning the first map of the series, where Taneli "disturbed" Veikkola amassed 30 kills, but victory still went to the Frenchmen, who relied on strong individual plays from Kévin "Ex6TenZ" Droolans and Kenny "kennyS" Schrub.

3DMAX then equalised the series after running out 16-10 winners on de_dust2, where they managed to pick up 12 rounds on the Terrorist side, but the final map of the series, de_cobblestone, was a one-way street as Titan quickly sealed a 16-6 win after taking 14 rounds on the Terrorist side.
