Cloud9 sweeps grand final to win title at IEM Dallas

Cloud9 swept ENCE in the grand final of the Intel Extreme Masters Season XVII in Dallas on Sunday, winning the tournament’s $100,000 grand prize.

Cloud9 opened with a 16-12 win on Mirage, took Overpass 16-11 and closed out the best-of-five match with a 16-3 rout on Ancient.

Dmitry “sh1ro” Sokolov of Russia guided the way for Cloud9 with 67 kills and a plus-36 kills-to-deaths differential, both match highs. His four teammates all notched between 52 and 55 total kills, with Russian Timofey “interz” Yakushin finishing with a plus-19.

The CIS region team had to earn the third-place berth in Group B in order to advance out of the group stage. They then made the grand final after consecutive 2-1 wins in the quarterfinals and the semifinals.

ENCE settled for the second prize of $42,000. Janusz “Snax” Pogorzelski of Poland led them Sunday with 49 kills.

The $250,000 Counter-Strike: Global Offensive tournament began with 16 teams divided into two groups for the double-elimination opening stage. The first-round matches were best-of-one. All other matches through the group stage and the playoffs were best-of-three except for Sunday’s best-of-five grand final.

In addition to the $100,000 first prize, Cloud9 also received 1,000 ESL Pro Tour points and 2,400 BLAST Premier points.
