In the Counter-Strike playoffs SK Germany had to face mTw on de_train in their first game and after a good CT half they managed to put up an equally good terrorist side to clinch the win against mTw. SK started of strong against mousesports but couldn't keep it up in the second half and thus SK had to go into the lowerbracket final. Here they met mTw again but this time on de_cbble, SK started as CT which should have given them an advantage but they lost a lot of rounds, as T they started of slow but then started winning rounds, mTw however kept their advantage till the last round and won the game in the final round. SK Gaming finished 3rd in Season VII of the EPS which is considered to be the German Championships.
SK|Tixo just won the Most Improved Player award!
