Team CryptiK managed to bounce back after a tough loss to eUnited with a big victory over Team Blackout in Pool D at the Gears of War Pro Circut Dallas Open.
Coming off of a match where they came incredibly close to bumping off eUnited, Team CryptiK looked as if they had no gas left in the tank in their first map against Team Blackout after a 2-7 loss, going down 0-1 in the series.
However, after re-gaining composure following the first match, CryptiK looked dominant in the second map of the series with a 7-1 thrashing, forcing a game 3.
The two teams would exchange rounds back and forth at the beginning of the last map, with both squads matching up incredibly well against one another.
Once crunch time came along, the Europeans lineup of CryptiK picked up momentum at the perfect time, eventually pulling away for the 7-3 win and brought their record in Pool D to 1-1.
After making their run through the Open Bracket, CryptiK will now need to go up against Vanquish for the number two spot in Pool D, which would allow them to move on to the Championship Bracket alongside eUnited.
