Tobias “CleanX” Jonsson helped his Toronto Ultra side to yet another win in the qualifiers for their home Major.
Berlin Hardpoint was pretty close on the scoreboard but the slaying ability of the resurgent Toronto Ultra team proved too much in the opener.
London were rocked by being “full sailed” by Boston Breach on Search and Destroy last weekend and that lack of confidence was evident again as they lost 6-1 on the same map.
CleanX added to his impressive map one outing with a fantastic 10/1 effort on Berlin SnD.
Toronto Ultra look a completely different team than they have at times this year. They’re finally working out some of the issues that they’ve had.
At [4-1] on the stage, they’ve really come into form at the exact right time. They’ll be firmly in the upper bracket as all 12 teams travel to Toronto for Major 3 next week.
Tuscan was perhaps a surprise inclusion for the Control map. Both teams had majorly losing records on Tuscan Control heading into the map.
With Toronto showing promise on Berlin though, it was probably smart that London opted for the change of scenery.
Control was incredibly tight and it came down to Ben “Bance” Bance trying to pull off a 1v2 in round five. He couldn’t quite get the job done and London extended the series beyond the sweep.
The series stayed on Tuscan for the second hardpoint. It was tight throughout the first few hills with the Ravens getting the opening break in their favour.
Toronto stormed back into the map and took the win on the last second of P4 on the second rotation.
London will now need a miracle to not start in the lower side of the bracket in Major 3.
Berlin Hardpoint: 250-198
Berlin Search and Destroy: 6-1
Tuscan Control: 2-3
Tuscan Hardpoint: 250-158
