Despite losing the very first match 1-16, Ancient won the €20,000 Pantamera CS:GO Challenge after a 2-0 victory in the grand final versus Orgless (de_overpass 16-6, de_inferno 16-11).
Apart from the all-important MLG Columbus Main Qualifier, Pantamera CS:GO Challenge has taken place this weekend at Inferno Online in Stockholm, with teams such as Ancient, ENCE and Orgless in attendance.
The tournament kicked off with a best-of-one, round-robin group stage, where Ancient surprisingly fell to Preparation in a blowout performance on de_cbble, as the Danish-Swedish mixture won 16-1.
Frej "kHRYSTAL" Sjöström's team came out on top of their group, trailed by Ancient, both of whom played close matches with ENCE, who finished in third place and exited the tournament early.
In group B it expectedly came down to ALTERNATE aTTaX and Orgless for the top spot, with the former edging the latter 16-13 on de_cache.
Markus "pronax" Wallsten and company wrecked ALTERNATE aTTaX in the semi-finals on two straightforward maps, while Orgless overcame Preparation in a narrow fashion.
The two winners then met in the grand final, which Ancient took home in a fairly convincing manner, as they dropped six rounds on de_overpass and 11 on de_inferno.
The match for third place was also played out between Preparation and ALTERNATE aTTaX. Sjöström proved his worth against the Germans, topping the overall scoreboard with 57-32 (1.71 rating), especially carrying on the closer map of the two (16-12 de_cache).
