Things didn't get any easier for karrigan in the second half as EnVyUs were red-hot out of the gates to win five straight. Eventually, karrigan was able to break the nV economy and retain the economy of their own en route for an edging 16-14 finish.

Field day through two
April 22, 2018
NiKo posted a 42/28 KD on Friday in a 2-0 series win over Team EnVyUs in the Group A decider match at DreamHack Masters Marseille.
ANALYSIS
NiKo had a rather slow start to the Group A decider on Train as he trailed the CT's of nV for the majority of the half. The start was highly contested after giving up the pistol and the eco round but managed to end the half with two in a row for an 8-7 half. Another slow start came his way in the second half as nV took control of the T-side to win five in a row, but he eventually helped break EnVyUs' economy to come back and steal the series lead 16-14, posting a 23/21 KD and an 89.0 ADR. He pressed on into Overpass on the T-side to advance the first half with a 7-1 lead, thanks to his Round 8 triple entry kill on the B-bombsite. EnVyUs were unable to respond and the end result came with NiKo securing the 2-0 series win to the quarterfinal.
Unable to edge Mirage
April 21, 2018
GuardiaN went 37/41 on Thursday in a 2-0 loss to Cloud9 in the Group A winners' match at DreamHack Masters Marseille.
ANALYSIS
A slow start on the CT-side of Overpass was a start that GuardiaN didn't need as he had a hard time getting his hands on the AWP. Eventually, GuardiaN couldn't help secure the remaining four rounds to end the half with a 9-6 deficit. The second half didn't change as he continued to struggle against Cloud9 to come up short with a 16-13 loss. The first half series on Mirage was a battle that ended 9-6 in favor of Cloud9 once again. However, this time the second half looked sharp for GuardiaN, who began to crank out the offensive rounds to edge Cloud9 for the lead, but unfortunately, he came up short once again.
Stopped short in the sweep
April 21, 2018
rain posted a 46/43 KD on Thursday in the 2-0 loss to Cloud9 in the Group A winners' match at DreamHack Masters Marseille.
ANALYSIS
rain's series start on Overpass was a rather dismal one on the CT-side as Cloud9 took control through the majority of the first half. rain did manage to help round out the first half with the remaining four en route to a 9-6 deficit. Cloud9 continued to press on through the second half to eventually reach map point, and while rain helped cranked out a handful of rounds, they could not force the extra rounds in the 16-13 loss. A contested start to Mirage eventually went the way of Cloud9 before rain helped FaZe retain control late in the half thanks to his quick double kill entry into the B-bombsite to secure the second pistol and his Round 21 quad kill clutch to take a three round lead. In the end, rain's efforts weren't enough to force a Map 3 as he fell short 16-14 in the loss.
