Match: 1/5 – Map: Throwback – Mode: Hardpoint

Round two was all Astonish, taking the round in under 30 seconds with some great plays by Devantae “Erah” Uluvili.
Slicer was much more patient in round three, waiting for Astonish to make mistakes before cleaning up the 1vs3 for an easy win. Slicer got the bomb plant in round four, leaving a 1vs1 between Slicer’s Dean “Dean2G” Beldzinski and Astonish’s Teraah. Dean2G was able to get the kill after Teraah had to commit to the defuse.
Round five was extremely close, leaving a 2vs2. Dean2G took down Sean “Sportsta” Blanchette to make it a 2v1. Teraah was able to get the bomb planted, but Dean2G grabbed the kill and defused the bomb.
Round six was just as close as round five. Astonish had a great chance to win, but they allowed Slicer to plant the bomb with 5 seconds left in the match. That was a crucial mistake, giving Slicer a 5-1 lead with match point on the line.

Match: 4/5 – Map: Frost – Mode: Hardpoint
Just like the last hardpoint map, Astonish came out battling. They were only down 10 points heading to Research, but it was Slicer taking control behind a 12-5 Dean2G. Robot Bay would also belong to Slicer, extending their lead to 127-52.
Ridge was hotly contested early on, with both teams swapping control. Astonish would take some points at Cryo as well, but Slicer still had a 168-93 lead. Both teams were aced at Research, with players just charging in relentlessly.

Slicer was great on Ridge all map, and once again they were able to get a great defense going. Astonish couldn’t get on the hill initially, but they were able to extend it to the next hardpoint.

Match: 5/5 – Map: Throwback – Mode: SND

Slicer was on fire, completely dominating round three. This was a team in total control. Round four was another tactical masterpiece, as YKEminence was 9-0 with Warden available next round.
Despite the warden being down, Astonish was able to get the ace and defuse at the very last second to win the round. That was one of the craziest rounds we’ve ever seen.
Round six was back to the usual, with Slicer just cruising through. Round seven Astonish found a great opportunity, winning a 3vs1 and defusing the bomb. Unfortunately, round eight was back to business for Slicer, winning the map 6-2.
