After placing 3rd at Fragadelphia, Vanity and co. are victorious in Kansas City
A$AP Forever, a mix led by three Gorilla Gang players, has won the recent iteration of the Kansas City LAN organized by Midwest CS:GO, taking home $2,500 over Secret Geniuses Club.
The grand finals kicked off on Overpass, with A$AP handily taking the first four rounds before SGC halted their streak with a successful bomb plant. SGC's victory was brief however, as A$AP regained control, taking another four rounds before SGC found another round off an eco. Both teams traded rounds, with SGC managing to pull a three-round win streak, before A$AP closed out the half 10-5.
Both teams were neck-and-neck in the second half, with A$AP taking the pistol before falling in the next two rounds. Anthony "Vanity" Malaspina's team rebounded, swiping away the last five rounds to take the map 16-7, bringing them 1-0 in the series.
SGC gained the early lead on Nuke on the CT-side, taking the first four rounds before A$AP retaliated with three straight rounds before SGC found their fourth round. Led by Vanity, A$AP managed to take six straight rounds, with the half ending 9-6 in A$AP's favor.
Taking advantage of the CT-side, A$AP easily retained their lead, taking the first three rounds, bringing the score to 12-6. After SGC finally found their first round of the half, A$AP resumed their dominance, taking four straight rounds to take the map 16-7 and closing out the grand finals in a 2-0 series.
