After a weekend of excitement and clutch moments, Misfits emerged victorious as the winner of the CyberPowerPC Fall CS:GO tournament. The round of 8 on Saturday, September 30th, saw all of the top seeds winning their matches comfortably 2-0, except surprisingly, Misfits defeating Luminosity Gaming 2-1 in a relatively close match. The first semifinal match between Renegades and Counter Logic Gaming kicked off with an overtime game on Train that was a nail-biter to watch. Ultimately, Renegades eked out the victory 19-17 by winning 2 rounds on both sides of overtime. The next map, Inferno, saw CLG run out of a steam a bit although they kept the map close still. In the end, Renegades took a hard fought 2-0 victory.

The close matches continued in the next match between OpTic Gaming and Misfits as the new European roster of OpTic struck first winning in Overtime on Inferno to put a 1-0 lead on the board. The second match was a disaster for them as Misfits ran them over with a swift 16-5 victory to tie the match and bring it to Mirage. Misfits had a flying start to Mirage taking a massive 14-4 lead. However, OpTic fought back round after round and despite losing another round to make the score 15-9, they managed to come back all the way to tie up the game at 15-15. It looked like OpTic would complete their comeback when they won the first 3 rounds of OT1, but Misfits found a late burst of their own to take the next 3 rounds, bringing the match to a second overtime. At this point, Misfits continued their streak and put another 3 rounds on the board and quickly closed it out afterwards to take a well-earned 22-19 victory.

Unfortunately for the viewers, the close, tense matches ended there as Misfits proceeded to clean up in the grand finals. They quickly defeated Renegades, 16-11 and 16-2 on Overpass and Inferno respectively to win the tournament and $9000 to boot. Congratulations to the winners and in particular, ShahZaM from Misfits, who had a huge showing in the tournament and was a key factory in their victories, with his lowest rating at 1.14 on any map in the tournament.

  1. Most people, when they criticize, whether they like it or hate it, theyre talking about product. Thats not art, thats the result of art. Art, to whatever degree we can get a handle on (Im not sure that we really can) is a process. It begins in the heart and the mind with the eyes and hands.

Its not like youve said anything incredibly impressive more like youve painted a pretty picture over an issue that you know nothing about! I dont want to sound mean, here. But do you really think that you can get away with adding some pretty pictures and not really say anything?
