Mamut.si versus Polagz
We just saw an unbelievable match between these two teams. Nobody expected PolagZ to perform like this as they were able to give Mamut.si a very hard stand!
But first some general information about the match and its facts:
These two teams battled it out on Radar, Adlernest and Goldrush.
This map usually is a surety for a thrilling match with nice docruns and hunts. Though this time mamut.si showed why they like to play this map. They did not gave PolagZ a big chance on here after holding the full time at the defence side they rushed the two objectives within a few minutes and gained the two first points for them.
This map was more about an upset in this match. First we had PolagZ on the Axis side and mamut.si pushing for the plant within the first minute. They kept up the pressure and managed to steal the documents just a minute after. PolagZ were not able to get those back and so mamut.si set an impressive time of just above 3minutes.
Now we saw PolagZ jumping down the hill to save their chances to stay within the winner bracket of this competition. They also managed to set the plan within the first minute and due that really had a chance to win this map!
After some nice pushs they finally took away the objective for the first time with less than one minute left on the clock. TosspoT shouting at his microphone as if this would be the Grand Final and rising the pressure on PolagZ's objective carrier.
Night was the only one alive when the objective medic made his way through to the transmitter but also he was not able to stop him while only very very few seconds remained on the clock.
The cointoss brought us Goldrush as a decider map. While TosspoT and QuadV unfortunately joined back in a bit too late when PolagZ already stole the tank from mamut.si after a few attacks. But still we saw a very stunning attack by the PolagZ side who at the end set a 8 minute time.
This time it was mamut.si's job to secure their points and stay within the winner bracket. They also stole the tank very fast and kept their chance on winning this map. The #1 Tank Barrier got constructed once but this did not stop them for long.
Though PolagZ managed to get hold on their rushs at the very last stage with a nice Crossfire and some spamm from their side. mamut.si looked pretty much lost for a few minutes and anybody expected PolagZ to take this unexpected win when the clock was down to 2minutes.
But still in a stunning fight RELOAd made his way up the street while he was being hunt by several Axis players. At the same time mamut.si cleared the truck and stopped PolagZ from building the barrier.
In the end mamut.si had just about a minute to drive that truck home and the crowd was stunned by the shown scenes when the stream broke down and everybody was running to the tables of mamut.si to keep track of things.
Without being distracted from the surrounding crowd mamut.si truly brought that truck home just in time and won the match with 4:2.
