Major II Qualifiers Week 2: Day 3 – Minnesota Røkkr vs LA Thieves

Map 1 – Berlin hardpoint
Røkkr gained control of the first hardpoint quickly into the first map. They were able to score 40 points before LA Thieves could start scoring. LA Thieves ramped it up on the P2 rotation and their defense was nearly flawless as they held the entire hill and gained the lead over Røkkr. LA Thieves was the first of these teams to hit the 100-point mark. On the second rotation of the hill Røkkr started to score again, they closed the gap to within 25 points of LA Thieves. As the casters went into a listen-in with Røkkr the team seemed to be holding composure and had clean, calm communication. The casters also went to a listen-in with LA Thieves and you could hear the control and confidence in their voices. They didn’t stutter, they didn’t stumble over their words. LA Thieves know exactly what they needed to do to win. The kills began to go in favor of Røkkr and they have found a second wind, they put some extra points on the board and stopped the bleeding for a moment. Røkkr continued to put the pressure on LA Thieves and take the lead again for the first time since the beginning of the game. Røkkr had the last-minute magic but it wasn’t enough, and LA Thieves sneak away with the map one win, 250-246.

Map 2 – Tuscan Search and Destroy
LA Thieves bombarded the B bombsite but before they know it, they were in a 2v3 situation. Octane and Envoy got one kill a piece which put Preistahh in a 1v2. Preistahh died to Octane, and LA Thieves took round one. Attach got the first blood in the second round but LA Thieves manage to put Standy in a 1v2. Standy got a pick on the bomb planter leaving Envoy all alone. Standy picks off Envoy shortly after and Røkkr gets their first round in the books. Røkkr picked up another round and took the lead, but they didn’t have a lot of time to celebrate because that was the last round, they won the search and destroy. LA thieves won 5 rounds in a row and took the map win, 6-2.

Map 3 – Gavutu Control
Røkkr needed to turn things around, and they needed to do it fast. They started off map 3 very slay heavy as LA Thieves find themselves down by 7 lives. Røkkr is bringing the pain this map and they won the first round of control. Røkkr sets up for a standard A push as the second round is underway. LA Thieves answer back and win the following round, the map was all tied up, 1-1. The kill feed is all Røkkr going into the third round. Røkkr clutched up on defense, they had the lives advantage yet again and they are working together extraordinarily well. Røkkr won round 3 and had a glide bomb in their back pocket in case things got too mixy. LA Thieves were on offense going into the 5th round. Standy still has that glide bomb and is saving it for a special moment. Both teams looked even in the kill department for most of this map. Røkkr did end up winning map 3 and this is where their comeback started.

Map 4 – Bocage Hardpoint
Røkkr is carrying the slay heavy mindset into the hardpoint as Attached started off 8-0. Despite the kills going in the favor of Røkkr the score is favoring LA Thieves as they had the lead for a moment. Røkkr gained map control and took the lead back but this match is going back and forth. LA Thieves was the first team to get possession of the P4 hill and they are also the first team to break 100 points. Røkkr fought tooth and nail to gain some sort of comfortable lead but LA Thieves turned on the afterburners. LA Thieves really did not want this series to go to a game 5 and it is showing in their gameplay. Røkkr was just 25 points away from winning the 4th map, the kill feed flooded with purple and Røkkr forced a game 5!

Map 5 – Bocage Search and Destroy
Røkkr takes the first 2 rounds in this search and destroy. Røkkr is notorious for their strength in Search and Destroy and they are showing everyone watching why they are the best of the best as they secure another round. We cannot count LA Thieves out just yet as they answer back and won a round of their own. Envoy got a first blood in round 4 and Attach and MajorManiak are in a 2v4 situation, I don’t know what they had for breakfast this morning, but they were playing out of their minds. Røkkr clutched up the 2v4 and extend the lead 4-1. Røkkr had a little scare in the next round as octane almost ninja defused the bomb but Røkkrs in-game sense was too strong. They stopped the ninja defuse and they pull off the reverse sweep. The “Comeback Kids” do it again and take down LA Thieves 3-2!
