dCypher CS:GO place 2nd at the Rendezvous LAN!
The Tournament's structure was group play to determine seeding then bracket play would commence on the Sunday. We had a well packed group with skill across the board including the teams final Kyrptonite, Team-HCBS.
Our first game was against a team called 'Viscious Racoon' and beating them in striking fashion with a 16-3 victory on de_inferno. Our 2nd game and penultimate group match was against the mighty Team-HCBS and this time on the weekend we came out victorious with a 16-7 victory on the map de_cache, meaning after pool play we finished with a flawless 2-0 result.
Going into the play-off stages of the tournament, the team were all very optimistic that they were going to carry on their run of winning in persuasive fashion and so they did, with the play-off stages now becoming best of 3's the team did not drop one map until the final, beating the teams; l1som1pl1, Wyvern Esports and vinkelparty all 2-0.
In the final we met Team-HCBS that we're coming into the final hot and full of motivation. The first map was de_cache, being our pick and also beating HCBS in pool play on this map too we we're definitely the favours to win it and so we did, the 1st side of the map ended 8-7 in favour of the dCyph squad on T side. The 2nd our squad showed pure dominance and not dropping one single round ending the side and map 16-7 on CT side. 2nd map, Team-HCBS' pick de_inferno was a whole different story. The opposition came with pure skill and dominance winning the map 16-5 tying the series 1-1. The final map, again Team-HCBS came out of the stocks with composure by ending the side 12-3. But, dCyph on the 2nd side came back showing resiliance and winning 7 rounds in a row making the score 12-10 but the tides changed once again and Team-HCBS closed out the map, match and tournament 16-10 and becoming victorious.
We would like the thank RZ and all their sponsors for putting on a great event!
