Despite facing tough challenges in previous playoff stages of Counter-Strike 2 tournaments, MOUZ demonstrated resilience and determination, particularly evident in their stellar performance on Overpass, where they clinched victory from a 6-8 deficit on the T-side.

The series showcased MOUZ’s adaptability and strategic prowess, as they capitalized on G2’s vulnerabilities, especially on maps like Nuke and Overpass.
