GEFORCE CUP 2017: Red Reserve to the finals

Polish hopes are crushed as Red Reserve beat local favourites and advance to the finals of GEFORCE CUP 2017.

The second semifinals was much anticipated as the Polish squad played in front of the local fans in the Centennial Hall. On the Main Stage we have had Red Reserve take upon the crowd favourites, Team Kinguin. Due to unexpected issues, the Swedes were forced to field Mikail ‘Maikelele’ Bill, which meant that the Poles had a tall task ahead of them.

It was the Scandinavians, who started strong in the first map, but we did not have to wait too long for the local squad to come online. The match was even until the half-time, but Red Reserve were always a step ahead of their opponents. After switching sides, both teams kept going head to head and everyone seemed to play their hearts out. In the end, it was the Swedish formation that managed to get away with a victory.

The momentum flipped at the beginning of the second map, as the Poles won the opening rounds. It seemed like they found a remedy for all their problems, but it turned out that after the Swedes had bought proper equipment, it was not the case. From that moment, Red Reserve controlled the pace of the game and did not let Team Kinguin make a comeback happen. This means that the Scandinavians will face off against Space Soldiers in the Grand Finals of GEFORCE CUP 2017.
