Today it was blameF and poizon’s turn to pop off on Dust II, with 3.0 and 2.5 KDRs respectively (also sported 2.00 and 1.99 HLTV 2.0 player ratings respectively). C9 was definitely more comfortable on their map choice, but it still took all 30 rounds and one cheeky backstab from motm to secure Inferno. The new C9 squad secured the reverse sweep on Nuke, winning the knife round and starting with a strong 12-3 CT side and never looking back en route to a 2-1 victory.
COL 16-8 C9 (Dust II) | COL 14-16 C9 (Inferno) | COL 3-16 C9 (Nuke)
C9 will face the lower bracket champion in the BO5 grand final and start with a 1-0 lead for winning the upper bracket. COL will drop to the BO3 lower bracket final and await the winner of MiBR and INTZ.
