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.
