Summary of the match Mandatory vs BeGenius

Mandatory in Attack loses the first round, but tries a force-buy in the second. A strategy that doesn't pay off and forces MDR to start 3 rounds behind before recovering. Once in fullbuy, the game becomes much more balanced. Mandatory manages to come back 5 rounds, thanks to the regularity of TheBigFiz, but BeGenius' defence is formidable. OniBy on Sova stays in the spawn and does some incredible line-ups, spotting or hurting Mandatory players by surprise. TiduS perfectly bypasses our team too, making pincer attacks on Mandatory. BeGenius wins the first side with a score of 7-5.

At side change, things remain complicated for Mandatory, but the team is gradually catching up. BeGenius is extremely aggressive, but runs into the wall of Goaster and TheBigFiz. Mandatory plays the retakes perfectly, despite BeGenius's well-established strategies. Under pressure, BeGenius team prefers to try force-buys in their turn to get back into the last rounds. It was another failure that precipitated their fall into an unfavourable economy spiral. Mandatory finally wins the game on a flawless, avoiding overtime, with a score of 13 to 11.
