Ultra wins the 1st ESL 5on5 infantry Cup!Ultra showed great teamplay and individual performances in the 1st ESL Battlefield 3 infantry cup.
Ultra played a total of 5 matches:
1st match was against the German team beQuiet on Damavand Peak. Sadly the Germans had connection problems and they were force to play 2ith only 4 players. The match was quickly done and Ultra won with 465.0
2nd match was against Artificial Intelligence (AI) from Finland on Grand Bazaar. It didn't take long before VIP had the Finnish team down to their main in both round. VIP won in total with 392-0
3rd match was against the Greek team, Hellenic Elite Armed Team (HEAT)On Operation Metro. As many might know, metro has 350 tickets as standard. This meant that the match was taking a very long time. Ultra had some problems in the beginning as USMC and HEAT managed to bleed Ultra down a lot. Ultra did however manage to get the B flag on Metro and dominated to the end and won with 197-0. 2nd round as Russians where more or less a walkover. Ultra got A and B flag fast and pushed HEAT all the way down to last flag and shortly after, down to their main. Ultra won big time with 334-0. Ultra won in total 531-0.
4th match and semifinal was against the Danish team ireplica. ireplica is one of the best and most active teams in the Danish community and Ultra was in for a hell of a fight. The map was Teheran Highway. Ultra started out as Russians and managed to quickly get 2 flags and get a solid bleed on ireplica. After some hard fights ireplica managed to get back into the fight and had for some time bleed on Ultra. Ultra did however manage to get both A and C flag and by then get the bleed back on ireplica and won 1st round comfortably with 91-0.
2nd round is was supposed to be uphill for ireplica. But instead they had a good start and bled Ultra down for a long time. Ultra never really got a good grip in the 2nd round and due to strong teamplay from ireplica, Ultra lost the 2nd round with 0-33. Ultra did however win with a total 91-33 and won the 1st spot in the final.
The final was against yet another German team, AeQuus. AeQuus roster a couple of Battlefield experienced players, LordOfTheGames and KONgiii. Both players have showed great skill in earlier Battlefield games.
1st round Ultra started out as Russians. Ultra had a very good start and managed to get 3 flags very fast and Seine Crossing. AeQuus was never allowed to get back into the match even though they showed great skills and fragpower, Ultra managed to bleed them down to 169-0.
2nd round was a lot more intense and equal. Ultra had a lot of problem getting a foothold and bleed on AeQuus. This resulted in a small win after 37 minutes of playing in a small win for Ultra with just 39 tickets. In total VIP Ultra won the final against AeQuus with total 208-0.
VIP Ultra will be joining the next ESL 5on5 Infantry cup Wednesday 7th December and depending on how far Ultra reaches, the cup will continue on Thursday 8th December.
