The Old Guard.

Thu 26th May 2016 - 2:00pm : General : Gaming

The story of Virtus.Pro hit a whole new low last night, with the impending news that, providing VP don't get the wildcard slot, they will be pushed down into Premier. This comes off the back of another devasting online result, following from a string of them happening all year. PENTA won out the relegation match for Pro League 2 - 1.

VP started out the series fresh-faced, clear favourites to win the relegation match, retaining their spot for the ESL ESEA Pro League. However, unfortunately for the Polish side, Penta dealt a massive blow in the first map, upsetting any tempo and mindset VP had garnered for the series, getting smacked down 16 - 3. This followed up with a second map, where VP was actually able to find a foothold, albeit a close one at that. VP backed this up the second half with an impressive CT side, closing out the map 16 - 9.

This meant that all was to play for now on this decider map, with both teams working extremely hard to take a win in this series. Notably, PENTA using tabseN, a player now no longer starting in the active lineup for PENTA. With tabseN already announced via his Twitter that he has taken an offer at another team already, an announcement to follow soon.

Moving on into the third map, Cobblestone enters the fold. A map that led both teams to fight it out in overtime, taking things round-by-round, kill-by-kill, a mindset that eventually closed out the overtime 19:17 for PENTA.

For Virtus.Pro, this marked a fairly bleak looking time, with the fact that they may find themselves competing in Premier -- no longer in Pro League, this time around. Highlighted above, however, this trend of loss does not follow them to LAN, something noticeable as the team took the fight to Na'Vi at the Starladder iLeague Invitational, where they triumphed with a first place finish.

A fact that's certainly worth remembering is that this team, this lineup, even this organisation is one of the oldest within the scene. In practically every event we always see the old-guard compete, gaining varying results, from Top 8's to competing in grand finals. For example, taking a 3rd-4th finish, after losing out to Tempo Storm - one of the rising Brazillian forces currently. One of the unfortunate online results for the team was the 12th place finish within Pro League, one highlighting the perhaps 'deserved' drop out of the League, something publically criticised as a wake-up call for the lineup. Before this, we saw two 5th-8th place finishes, DH Malmo and MLG Columbus, respectively. 

It's been a rough time for the Polish side, with perhaps a graph not quite going in the planned direction, however, looking at history - we've seen this happen before with the squad, perhaps this will usher in a new era of motivation for the lineup, bringing rise to the old-guard once again?
