Insomnia60 CS:GO : Day Two - Playoffs!
As the first day ended with an astounding 5-0 record in the group stage, TLR.eSports looked prime and ready to tackle the opponents awaiting them in the playoffs.
Unfortunately, the squad's first game of the day was a tough one, with Crident superseding them in the winner's bracket, 2-1.
Taking a step back, the CS:GO squad took time to recollect their thoughts and devised a new, forthcoming strategy that would bring victory as they entered the lower-brackets.
As the second game arrived, TLR showed no remorse against Dragon eSports, showing true fire and teamwork, extinguishing the Dragon's flames with a clean 2-0 sweep and moving onto the second round of BO3's.
Regaining confidence, TLR.eSports stepped into the following round proud and ready for action.
Round two; versus Bmagic's Day Care. Another swift 2-0 for the TLR side, however some notable opponents awaited in the third round in their way, Infused.
The Best of Three series versus Infused was a drawn-out, long battle that threw to each side in each matchup. The first match going to the side of Infused, but the TLR squad bounced back with a strong match to enforce the tie. One match remained, the tiebreaker that would decide the fate of our run in the tournament.
Unfortunately, it was not to last, as the 2nd-seeded Infused prevailed, taking the series in a close 2-1 matchup.
