It’s an Aussie team in the Playoffs after quite some time.

The Lower bracket final of Group D saw FlyQuest take on Ninjas in Pyjamas. At stake was a qualification for the ESL Pro League Season 19 playoffs, and an opportunity to potentially even qualify for IEM Cologne 2024. 

FlyQuest eliminate NIP

Here’s how the match veto went in the FlyQuest vs NIP match

Match veto:

  1. FlyQuest removed Overpass
  2. Ninjas in Pyjamas removed Mirage
  3. FlyQuest picked Ancient
  4. Ninjas in Pyjamas picked Vertigo
  5. FlyQuest removed Nuke
  6. Ninjas in Pyjamas removed Inferno
  7. Anubis was left over

FlyQuest started Ancient with a dominant 7-1 start. The team’s T-side was ruthless and there was little NIP could do to stop them on Ancient. The synergy between the Aussie players was clearly evident in the way they approached the game.

The final scorecard on the first map was rather evenly spread - INS topping the scoreboard with a 17 kill record. He had a +1 KDA with a 1.49 rating. The first half ended with a 7-5 score and FlyQuest had an even more dominant CT side. They ended the first map with a 13-7 victory.

The second map was Vertigo and it was a similar 13-6 victory for FlyQuest. The team started with a 6-1 lead and they won the first part of the second half as well. It was a momentous win for the team. INS had a 106.2 ADR on this map paving the way for the team going forward. With this victory, FlyQuest has qualified for the ESL Pro League Season 19 playoffs. The brackets will be determined after all the group-stage matches are over.
