On the 3th or April, the final shot of the Group stahe of the eSports Cup of Russia 2017 was held, three last players to take part in the playoffs determined in the matches of Group D, featuring our team's representative — Maksim «Tiko91» Plakhov. Despite some concerns because of the Best of 1 format and possible connection troubles, Maksim was able to win all five of his matches and advanced from the group on the 1st place, qualifying in to the winners bracket in playoffs.
His opponent of the semifinal of the winners bracket will be klenoff, who's playing for FC Lokomitiv. The winner of that march will get a LAN final spot, while the losers will be dropped to the lower bracket and will need to win another match to advance to the finals. The playoff matches will be played on May, 14th. The date of the LAN final is not announced yet.
«Group stage went rather difficult at first. I only won the first 2 matches by the rule of a golden goal, nearly throwing victores. After that, things became a bit easier. At any angle, the last game was the core one, because it was important to advance from the 1st place to get into the winners bracket to play bo3. There I faced UproTorres. The match was quite hard, not because of the opponent, but because of connect. Though there's no point of complaining, because half of online matches go just like that. The match finnished with a score 2-1 to my favour, me advancing on the 1st place. I hope to perform just as well in the playoffs to qualify to the LAN finals.»
