UK Masters — League Week 7
Last week saw the final matches of the Counter Strike: Global Offensive UK Masters league! After 4 qualifiers, and 7 weeks of league matches, we’re starting to come towards the end of this season of the UK Masters and while we might be coming to the end of the season, we’re not done just yet! The UK Masters playoffs take place this weekend on Saturday August 6th and Sunday 7th where the top 4 teams from the league will compete for a spot in the grand final live from Insomnia58. We’ve got details on the playoffs below!
The final week of the UK Masters league would sadly only give us one series. Due to Team Infused dropping from the competition and Ionic unable to field a squad, it would mean that Orgles5 and Millwall Bushwackers would provide this weeks entertainment.
Dust II would be the first map of the series and gave us a showcase of the strengths of the Orgles5 squad. They took a convincing 16–1 win without leaving the Bushwackers team any room to showcase their skills.
Map 2 would be a much more even game across the board, with teams trading rounds right up until the very end of the match. It would be Orgles5 that edged out a 3 round advantage and would finish the second map 16–13 over Millwall Bushwackers, giving them a 2–0 series score in the final match up of the UK Masters league.
