What a week for eSports, or to be more precise what a weekend. Seeking an undefeated tournament streak mousesports were ready to take over ‘Ninjas in Pyjamas’. But again, it wasn’t that easy this time. They defeated NIP by 2-1, clinching the Flashpoint Season 3 with $17000 top prize with 1600 EU regional major ranking points.
Mousesports, in the whole tournament, stayed unbeaten. Winning over almost all map and whitewashing upper-basket league by 2-0 lead. It was speculated that the final will also be one-sided but ‘NIP’ has some strategies. Well well well, mousesports started the round with sheer domination taking the scoreline 10-1. The match on the map Overpass was totally in control of mousesports when Ninjas bring out some technique and made a comeback to win the match by 16-13. This was the first-ever defeat faced by mousesports in this event.
Mousesports must have strategized thoroughly for the next games as it was necessary after this type of comeback from Ninjas. Trust me, not only the strategies but the players were in improved forms and the next level domination was seen from there. Mousesports won the Nuke by 16-6 and Inferno by 16-9 to claim the championship.
The Ninjas were second in the tournament and they won $10,000 as the second-place prize along with 1500 ranking points. The rest of the rankings and prize pool division are listed below.
