A ruthless SK Gaming sent out a clear message of their serious intent, though the match has been somewhat subdued due to the 'unsportsmanship' behaviour shown by SK, with regards to not allowing 'sniper fix'.
"yes they denied scope fix 2 min before the match that screwed us over we where demotivated cause of that so stevy couldnt pick scope so our tacs didnt work at all.afther crash we couldnt care anymore (was a bad decision) and we left." - Benny 'yazzy' Verheyen
Though the general feeling remains that even if the TCM had played with the fix, the result wouldn't have been massively altered, though TCM argue that having the best sniper in Europe (Stevy 'Stevy' Verheyen) handicapped mere minutes before the match, had a devasting moral impact, which the score highlights.
The win leaves SK with the best record (round difference) of any team, and with their biggest rivals also picking up wins against tough opponents; Dignitas (25:9 versus Roskilde Ravens), H2k.Qpad (25:9 versus nGize), Meet Your Makers (25:10 vesus Ancients) and TEK-9, Serious Gaming and L3 still to play their opening fixtures, this seasons Clanbase Eurocup is definatly worth watching.
