Wolves beats GodLike
The series started with a victory for GodLike on Hardpoint. The highlight of the match was Rishi “TrunKs” Dubey with 53 kills.
However, on the next map, Wolves tied the match with a comfortable victory in Search and Destroy. In Control, GodLike was once again ahead of the result with a balanced map.
Search and Destroy was the fourth map in the final. Despite TrunKs’ obvious comfort with the game style, Wolves were unable to win this time and draw the series at 2-2. Wolves defeated Search and Destroy 7-1 to take the series lead for the first time. Wolves scored a 3-2 triumph in Control in their first opportunity to end the game.
Despite the loss, GodLike’s journey is significant for Indian esports.
