Aegis Cup

The Aegis Cup hold quite a few suprises. Already in the first round triple cup-winner se The Alliance dropped out of the competition against the Germans, who tried their best on securing a spot in the SuperCup. Meanwhile, fr Quantic Gaming put on a hell of a show despite the fact they are without any chances of making it into the top four, as they not only kick out Fnatic, but also stretch mousesports to their limits in the semi-finals.

Being knocked out, Fnatic had to put their hopes on us Evil Geniuses, because an American win would secure them the participation in the Premier League Finals. However, Virtus Pro picked themselves a nice early-aggression line-up with an unconventional Vanguard pick-up on ru Ilya' Illidan' Pevcaev'S Spectre and rolled over both the Americans aswell as the other Russian team ru rox.Kis, who played with a stand-in after ru Andrey 'Dread' Golubev decided to retire.

In the grand final mousesports went for unusual picks like Earthshaker mid aswell as de Dominik 'Black^' Reitmeier's Butcher, but they failed to catch Virtus.Pro off guard, who forced two early gg's and collected 100 points to their account.
