Virtus.pro go flawless in grand final to win IEM New York CIS

Virtus.pro have won IEM New York CIS after taking down Nemiga in the grand final. Mareks ‘YEKINDAR’ Gaļinskis and company swept their opposition 3-0 in the best-of-five series.

Kicking things off on Mirage, things were looking to be tightly contested with the first half ending 8-7 in favor of Nemiga. VP would jump into the drivers seat, however, tanks to a pistol round victory they converted into three in a row. From there Nemiga began to steal away some rounds but couldn’t ever get enough momentum and ultimately lose the first map 16-12.

VP looked dominant on Dust2 where they decimated their opponents 16-5. in a team wide effort. YEKINDAR led the charge with a +8 kill-to-death differential and 99.8 average damage per round.

Inferno would be the tightest map of the three as Nemiga’s backs were pressed against the wall down 0-2. Anton ‘speed4k’ Titov and Rassim ‘Jyo’ Valijev did their best to keep the dream alive on Inferno with the highest k/d and ADR on their team respectively.

It wouldn’t be enough, however, with Dzhami ‘Jame’ Ali and YEKINDAR taking control of the game for VP to set them ahead in the 16-13 victory.
