It's done and they did it!! Virtus Pro is back! And this time thay have taken the championship title of Dreamhack Las Vegas 2017 and won the lion's share of the 450.000$ prize pool.
After beating major champions Astralis in the semi's, Virtus Pro had to prove themselves again against SK Gaming. Already in the semi's there a little "rivalry" after a couple of posts on twitter from Kjaerbye after the major championship that you can see here and a reply from Taz that you can see here. Well after taht VP did deliver and beat Astralis in a great fashion with these results: 16 - 3 Nuke (VP Choice), 9 - 16 on Overpass (Astralis choice) and 16 - 4 Train (decider).
It was onwards to the finals where they would meet the SK lineup already with felps in the roster, and once again VP delivered. Even though they lost the forst map 8 - 16 Cobblestone, they were able to take the last two maps from SK with 16-11 Train and a 16 -13 Mirage! Certainly a final not the faint hearted!
VP has come to very good form recently but the next tournament is up, and IEM Katowice awaits in a couple of days, let's see what they can do in their home turf. For now it's GG VP!!
