ChocoCheck returns to milk Cash Cup
The former team known as ChocoCheck saw a return of nearly the entire team for yesterday’s Cash Cup, with all but in-game leader Dominick “JazzPimp” Dimpfel showing up on the server for the team.
The mix team skated through the first three rounds with relative ease as they started the bracket with a bye and two unknown opponents. However, things became testy when they were pitted against MIBR in the fourth-round matchup. They started the Inferno match strong with a 10-5 T-side, but could not close the map out in regulation. Despite that, they buckled down in OT to defeat the Brazilians 19-17.
It was another close map for ChocoCheck as they went the distance on their map pick of Mirage against Detonate. They needed all 30, but they closed it out 16-14 before asserting their dominance on the second map. ChocoCheck replicated their 10-5 first half on Inferno against Detonate, but this time finished the map strong to avoid OT. After a 6-0 start in the second half, ChocoCheck walked away with an easy 16-5 victory to take them to the finals to face Iron Blood.
ChocoCheck fell behind immediately against Iron Blood, going down 1-5 before losing the first half 5-10 on their pick of Mirage. IBG did not let up, closing their opposition’s pick 16-9 to put them in position for a 2-0 finals victory. ChocoCheck were unphased by the loss and retaliated with an even harder hit against their opponent on Overpass. After the dominant 16-3 win, the momentum was back in favor of ChocoCheck as the two teams headed into the decider of Inferno.
Zack “XotiC” Elshani and Christopher “cJ” Jones went nuclear for their team in the third map, finishing with 25+ frags and a 1.40+ rating. XotiC was especially clutch for his team in the final stretches, ending the second half T-side of the third map with a 17-6 K/D and 103 ADR. The dominant pair took ChocoCheck from a 6-9 deficit to a 16-13 victory, closing out the series 2-1 and earning the lineup first place and the greater share of $15,000.
