Elevate v Cloud9 - Reedy v Aches

elevate-cloud9-reedy-aches Reedy has not held back with his criticism of one time world champion, Aches, and with the help from his Elevate colleagues backed up his claims. Reedy, one of the more vocal pros, particularly on social media, has made numerous claims that the scene's second most decorated player has been carried by former team mates en route to his accolades. Understandable then when the two teams were drawn, we were guaranteed a grudge match. While the outcome of the game wasn't all that surprising, the shock was perhaps the scoreline, as Elevate rolled their North American opponents 3-0. Hardpoint was bitterly close affair but a huge play by Reedy at the end helped secure a 1-0 lead. Elevate took an early lead on S&D but almost threw it away as Cloud9 rallied to tie up the map 5-5. In the deciding round 11, a mistake from C9 gifted their opponents the second map, helping the Europeans to a two map advantage. Finally, another excellent performance from Reedy on Uplink completed a 3-0 rout for Elevate who now move to a 1-1 record in the groups. The implications for Cloud9 are significant, falling to a 0-2 record ahead of their games against Team 3G and a yet to be determined Open Bracket team tomorrow. It's do or die for the runners up, as they will hope to stem the bleeding after a poor start to the competition. Team 3G's victory over Elevate could prove to be the saving grace for Cloud9, though, who could force a three way tie between the three teams in the battle for the runner up spot. The 3-0 scoreline in the Elevate v Cloud9 fixture may also have an impact if the group is to be decided by map wins and losses. Pool C is lining up to be a thriller but for now, advantage Elevate. -
