Russia's top team, Moscow Five(ROMJkE, ed1k, xek, Dosia, Fox) , have once more shown themselves to be the best in the region as they won ASUS Winter 2011 and ~$5,200 in prize money at the Kiev-based event. They defeated Iron Will 16-11 on de_train and 16-4 on de_tuscan.
"On de_train Iron Will looked like they had a lot fight back in them against Moscow Five, but in the end they just came a little short of making the match really exciting, despite producing some good rounds. On de_tuscan it was just Moscow Five on a different level, 11-4 as Terrorists and 5-0 on the CT side, meant 2-0 for Moscow Five and second place for Iron Will."- HLTV.org
