Mandatory vs Heet (2nd leg) - Challengers France 2023

There are only 2 games left before the playoffs of the first split in this VCL France. Mandatory must secure its second place in this match against HEET. For HEET, the qualification is at stake, even though the team is in turmoil following its removal from its organisation. An important game, but one that was also played on a brand new patch with the return of Split and the nerfs of Killjoy and Raze.

The match was one of the closest of the whole split for Mandatory, but our team won in the end.

Summary of the match Mandatory vs Heet

The match started extremely well for Mandatory in defence. The team won the Pistol Round on good synergy, but also the eco and bonus round. Despite Raze's nerf, AKUMAAAAA makes a mess of things. kAdavra takes over in the fourth round with a clutch. But the HEETs are getting into their stride. They use Sage's walls and Astra's smokes perfectly to take the height advantage and score three rounds in a row. The game is then balanced and few rounds end with more than one player alive. The first side ended with a 6-6 score.

Once in defence, HEET imposes its rhythm, still thanks to Kinguyen and his perfect placements. Even if the match remains disputed, the rotations of Mandatory are not fast enough and HEET takes little by little the advantage. But MDR has not said its last word. The team decides to play more tightly and much more slowly, which allows them to come back to equality at 11-11, notably thanks to HyP and TheBigFiz of surgical precision in their picks. In the end, it is Goaster who wins the very last round.

Mandatory wins with a score of 13-11 and confirms 100%'s presence in the playoffs.
