With 1 point behind, ISG plays cautiously and seeks a good opening to engage PVP’s forces. Although ISG tries to search for the enemy carefully, they still walked right into a trap.

They encounter PVP’s main force which was deployed between the hills in the center of the map. After a fierce engagement, PVP eliminates all of ISG's forces and takes another point.

  • PVP: T32 x2, Object 416, AMX 13 90 x2, T1 x2

Both teams play defensively at the beginning of the round, however PVP's forces got separated and taking advantage of this chance, ISG leverages on a number advantage and successfully eliminates most of PVP’s forces swiftly.

Although PVP still had one remaining tank when the round came to an end, ISG was awarded the win due to tier difference. ISG gets their first point.

Coming to the critical SET 4, ISG plays defensively in the city center while PVP seeks a chance to engage outside the city.

  • ISG: AMX13 90 x3, T32 x2, T1 x2
  • PVP: T32, AMX 50 100 x2, AMX13 90 x2, T1 x2

Both teams are looking to hit match point by winning SET5. PVP takes control of the central hill at the start of the round. ISG takes a gamble by sending out three AMX 13 90s to try to advance from the right side of the map, and two T32s down the central line in an attempt to break through PVP's defenses.

However, their gamble didn't pay off and PVP successfully cuts off ISG’s forces and makes short work of all their tanks. PVP is in the lead again with a 3:2 score.

  • PVP: IS-3 x2, AMX 50 100 x3, T1 x2

Match point for PVP. PVP tries to scout out ISG’s tanks patiently. ISG decides to sit back on the defensive near the base. PVP’s tanks begin to push stably and compress the maneuver space, then cuts ISG’s tanks off again successfully.

In the final showdown, PVP eliminates ISG's tanks one after another to seal the match with a 4:2 score.

Round 6 Winner
