The final day of the ZOTAC Cup Masters 2018 witnessed the finals taking place between MIBR & Kinguin.  

The BO5 series saw MIBR lift the cup after a clean ‘3-0’ victory over the Poles.
 


 
Match-1 


The first match was played on Dust 2. Although the map was picked by Kinguin, they were completely destroyed in the first half of the match as MIBR lead with a score of ‘13-2’, winning 12 rounds in a row. 

The second half saw Kinguin attempt to make their way back into the match as they claimed four consecutive rounds but faltered in the 20th due to a great triple-kill by 'fer'. The next two rounds sealed the win for MIBR as they took the match ‘16-6’.
 

Match-2 


The second match saw the two teams fight it out on Cache. The pistol round was won by MIBR playing  
T-sided. They followed it up with 2 more rounds but Kinguin stopped them short as they took the next 3 themselves. MIBR took the lead back with a triple round sweep, although Kinguin managed to break the streak it wasn’t effective as another 3 rounds went the way of MIBR. Kinguin managed to get the last two rounds before halftime to bring the score to a ‘6-9’ deficit. 

Kinguin kept their form by winning 3 more rounds post-halftime but a determined MIBR broke their momentum to win 4 continuous rounds in their favor. The next couple of rounds were equally exchanged before Kinguin took a hattrick of rounds leaving MIBR in a pinch. MIBR ran a cautious play to win the next round, reaching the match point. This was followed by a round won by the Poles, now one round away from taking the match into Overtime. The last round was clutched by MIBR who won the hard-fought match ‘16-14’ while leading the series ‘2-0’.
 

Match-3


The third match witnessed a brutal washout for Kinguin on Train as all they managed to win was the 7th round. MIBR ran all over Kinguin winning the match ‘16-1’ while taking the series ‘3-0’.
 

 


Winning the BO5 series with a convincing ‘3-0’ scoreline, MIBR stood victorious over Kinguin becoming the champions of ZOTAC Cup Masters 2018 and winning $200,000 along with the coveted trophy.
