Summary of the match

Map 1 - Pearl
MDR 13 - 9 EMJ

This semi-final started on Pearl, the map chosen by Emojipouce. Leaving the pistol-rounds to our opponents to win the map has become a habit, so Emojipouce emerged victorious from their first round of Defence. They then took a slight lead, 2-4, but only for a while. The very good executions of Mandatory gave them a hard time. Round after round, AKUMAAAA and Goaster caused sparks to fly to take back some points. During the end of the half, both teams trade wins, so that it is a perfect tie at side change.

Again, our opponents take the pistol-round. Nevertheless, the defence of Mandatory is good. At the end of round 16, the counters read 8-8. In the eighteenth round, Goaster tries a crazy action by holding on to the enemy Viper's poison. Thanks to this daring move, he surprises the whole of the opposing team and makes a series of kills. The end of the game is very well controlled by our players, who end up winning 13-9.

Map 2 - Fracture
MDR 2 - 13 EMJ

The confrontation continued on Fracture. Unfortunately for our players, this choice did not bear fruit. Extremely fast and precise, kAdavra flies over the game with his Neon. He ends the map with a KDA of 26/6/3 and an incredible 431 from ACS. Emojipouce quickly took the lead and won a deserved victory. Mandatory lost 2 to 13.

Map 3 - Haven
MDR 13 - 10 EMJ

Despite a heavy defeat on Fracture, our players did not lose heart at all, on the contrary. As usual, we lost the pistol-round, but very quickly, we took the lead thanks to a masterful Babax on Omen. Even under pressure during some rounds, Mandatory held its ground and was always decisive. At the changeover, Emojipouce were leading 9-3. The second pistol-round was almost won, but it ended in a draw. "IN OUR FACES!", as ZeratoR pointed out. After that, Babax was again exemplary and gave our team two more points. At this point, Mandatory leads 11-4. Victory seemed close, but the defence on Haven remains very complicated. Our opponents were bold and precise. So, at the end of the twenty-second round, the scores are close: 10-11 in our favour. Akumaaaaa saves the next round in extremis and thus offers another point to Mandatory. The map finally ends in the next round, with the score of 13 to 10.
