The Grand Final
The Finalists - Review
Both teams went through the groupstage without bigger problems and reached the second place. PowerGaming lost versus the first of their group OX Enermax and played a draw against PunchLine. Other than that they won with ease against Team SPEEDLINK and RG-Esports. As 2nd of group C they had to play the first round of the playoffs. Now in best of three system they won against the finnish guys from Blight Gaming with 13:8 and 13:10 in favour for them. Also in the quarter-finals they only needed to play two maps with taking down MondialServers clearly 13:5 and 13:8 before they won in the half-finals over the third placed team of the EMS RAGE.eSports.
With a look on TCM-Gaming there several similarities. Starting in the EMS Season with a draw against Team Thermaltake and a (very close) loss in of the next matches against RAGE.eSports they showed their strength with beating The Last Resort, Antwerp Aces and SFTO eSports with easiness. As PowerGaming now in the playoffs they did not show any weakness with winning over Infused.Tt and OX Enermax in only two maps. Only the germans from Tt were again to be a problem for TCM winning Crossfire with 13:5 but without any chances on Backlot and Strike.
In front of the final we did a quick interview with miRACLE which you can read here. If you are looking for some of the groupstage/playoffs matches you will find some of them as VoD on CoDTV.net.
