ENCE Defeat Vega Squadron to Claim StarSeries i-League Season 6 Championship
The grand final ofStarSeries i-League CS:GO Season 6 saw two teams most people underestimated face off against each other to prove a substantial point. Both ENCE eSports and Vega Squadron are strangers to success, but a win in Kiev, Ukraine would be a major turning point for either side.
Ultimately, it was the Finnish roster of ENCE that sealed the deal winning $1250,000 and turning heads in the process.
The first map was Train, and matches don’t get much closer. Surprising most, Vega Squadron managed to pull off the win to get off to a perfect start in the best-of-five series. In the first half, ENCE dominated as the CT side with a 10:5 scoreline.
It was an entirely different story on the T side however, as Vega Squadron strung together numerous rounds and barely conceded. They narrowly avoided overtime with a 16:14 victory.
Vega Squadron’s pick of Inferno was next, and afterwards they likely wished they picked different. They couldn’t make anything happen on their CT side, losing round and round — partially down to solid individual plays from Jani “Aerial” Jussila.
The first half ended 12:3 in favour of ENCE, and it didn’t take them long to close things out in the latter portion of the game. The map ultimately ended 16:6.
