Match summary Mandatory vs Zerance
Mandatory started the game in Attack. The first round was complicated and Zerance had a worrying numerical advantage. But this was without counting on Goaster who manages to put the Spike down and eliminate one by one his opponents in an unexpected clutch. With the exception of the Bonus Round, Mandatory wins all their rounds until he reaches 6 points and thus already wins the side. Just like Valiant the day before, the Zerance players are overwhelmed by the chaos created by Mandatory. Spells are used to create effective diversions that benefit HyP and his teammates. In the end, the Attack concludes with a score of 9 to 3 in favour of Mandatory.
Once the roles are reversed, Zerance begins to play in a more risky way. Players cross smokes at unexpected times, allowing them to take the pistol. A strategy that doesn't pay off twice, as Raze's grenade thrown to prevent this kind of cheap shot decimates Zerance players, allowing Mandatory to win the next eco. The economy advantage and the cover of Goaster, HyP and TheBigFiz allow Mandatory to get close to the win on a score of 12 to 5. Zerance then began to get around Mandatory's defences brilliantly and took back enough rounds to bring Mandatory to their knees on the economic side. Forced to play retakes, Mandatory players get blinded by Breach and Skye and find themselves unable to do anything. The time for a final round where individuality has taken over from strategy, AKUMAAAAA wins a final duel where he was at a great disadvantage and allows the team to win the game.
