Finland's Blight Gaming, who are currently ranked sixth of Europe in TEK9's November Rankings, has claimed first place in the Corsair Challenge.

With victories over teams such as GIGABYTE (13-7), deCerto (13-9) and Button Bashers (16-14), the Finnish side made their way to the Grand Final, which was played at 20:00 CET yesterday evening. With five Corsair HS1 USB Gaming headsets up for grabs, Blight went head to head with eSuba from the Czech Republic in a intense best-of-three matchup.

eSuba in turn are a force to be reckoned with in any competition and the Corsair Challenge might give them that extra push to make this month's top 10. The Czech side was able to outlast the field of 64, defeating eMpathy after double overtime (19-15) before taking down phys1x 13-11 in the Semi-Finals.

All in all, the tournament could not have asked for a closer ending: after taking mp_district 13-7, Blight Gaming lost the second map to eSuba on mp_backlot, 10-13, before delivering the final blow in overtime on mp_strike: 16-14.

Congratulations to Blight.

The tournament started in early October and it featured 32 teams divided in 8 groups, with only two teams advanced to the playoff stage. Playoffs tree could easily be described as "Croatian Domination" because they had nine teams in the bracket. All playoff matches were played in bo1 mode, except Grand Final where the winner had to take two maps in order to win the whole competition.

Prior to the the tournament Gamersject were marked as hot favourites for winning the competition but they did not reach the finals as they were beaten by their big rivals team Imex who advanced to the final match where they faced team o3s. After losing first map, o3s managed to take mp_crash after thrilling overtime battle. On mp_backlot team-imex did not stand a chance and o3s grabbed the title.

The following statement was given by team o3s captain Dario "DariX" Ilicic to Cadred.org
DariX said: I'm glad that the Vita Nova crew did not forget about all the small nations which are part of the Call of Duty 4 community as well. This was a great way to misdirect some attention to teams and players which were not so much known as the top 10 EU teams and a nice way for the so called "3rdies", to prove themselves. The whole cup was organized very well and had just a little bit pushbacks (only 1 disqualify team and a few late playoff matches) so I have no complaints about it. Many people said that we got lucky because we avoided the 2 favorites of this cup, gamersject and team-imex who were pronounced the best Croatian team at the moment but we stayed calm and waited for the winner to prove everybody wrong. After team-imex beat gamersject with a huge difference of 13:6 they came to the finals self confident that we would be no match for them and that they will defeat us easy. It was a sweat win after the scene saw team-imex or gamersject winning this and nobody did take us in concern for wining the title. I think we proved everybody wrong and have now a strong lineup to skill up for the upcoming Gamersject Winter Challenge in January (for which we are still looking for some support) where we will prove again that we should not get underestimated.

VitaNova Small States Cup - Final Standings:

1st Ovisnici Treceg Stupnja (o3s)

2nd Imex

3rd Gamersject

3rd Team.L6

Congratulations to team-o3s and thank you to all teams that participated!
