calipt opened up and maintained a healthy lead on t7, and with three minutes left and the score at 9-5 he looked to be taking an unlikely one map lead. k1llsen scored a couple of frags in quick succession but a comeback wasn't looking likely.
But the IEM V gamescom champion started to hit almost every shot he fired, and with 10 seconds left had flipped the game on its head by taking the lead 10-9. calipt was clearly down and out and tried to push for an equalizing kill but k1llsen played the situation out perfectly.
On the second map calipt again opened up a nice lead, but Hektik is one of those maps where anyone can string together a ton of frags with no reply from their opponent. k1llsen did just that, and within two minutes of being 5-0 down had opened up his own, and what turned out to be, insurmountable lead.
The map finished 22-12 in k1llsen's favor, giving him his second EPS title. The next EPS season will not feature Quake Live, though, so it is unsure when or whether k1llsen will defend his domestic crown.
