MALIK CS:GO Win UK Ascending
So with UK Ascending over we take a look at our Main CS:GO Team taking 1st place. Overcoming teams such as, Ufrag, Monumentals and Perilous Fury.
With 4 of our players from our main Team:
- Jon "Cynic" Burvill
- Marcus "Hveem" Hveem
- Samwell "Sam" Reynolds
- Liam "Ls" Scotter
Unfortunately Callum "Caspian" Brawn couldn't play in these games but a huge thank you to Andrew "resu" Robson from Team CEX, Henry "chron1c" Thornton and Elliot "EB" Bidmead from Molotovs and Marshmallows for playing in place of "Caspian" as a stand-in.
With only 12 teams taking part we had no team to play in the first stage and advanced to the second stage to face against Perilous.Fury who faced off against Revival in the first stage. This went in our favour beating Perilous.Fury 2-0 to move onto the semi-finals.
In the semi-finals we faced Ufrag. This was a close Bo3 with it going to the final third map to decide a winner and who would progress to the final. Luckily we were able to beat Ufrag and take the series 2-1.
The finals was going to be played against the team Monumentalis. This was an interesting final with the first map being played on train.
This was a strong start for us being able to take the map 16-6. A strong performance overall and a good start to the Bo3.
The second map was close with both teams giving it everything for 30rounds. The match then goes into overtime where we came out on top taking the series 19-17.
We managed to catch up with Jon "Cynic" Burvill after they won UK Ascending #2. This is what he had to say:
"We had a good time playing UK Ascending, it was run smoothly by the admins, I liked the qualifier and direct invites but there were a few issues with the servers. The BO3 format throughout was great too but I think that I would of liked to have seen a lower bracket format.
Next up for us we'll be playing in the Multiplay UK Masters, ESEA, and the ESL UK Major Ladder before i58. GGs to Perilous Fury, Ufrag and Monumentalis!
Thanks to MALIK eSports and our sponsors CRISPsrv and SkinsVault!"
Keep your eyes open over the next few weeks as our CS:GO team have matches in the lead up to i58, on our website and on our social media pages.
