We are going to Vegas
Viva Las Vegas. We qualified for the DreamHack Masters at the MGM Grand in Sin City from February 15th to 19th. Two hard fought wins against BIG Clan and HellRaisers paved the way to Nevada.
The DreamHack Masters in Las Vegas will see 16 of the best CS:GO teams battle at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. Besides the eight invited teams, four European sides managed to qualify this week. FaZe Clan, fnatic, Gambit and mousesports. It was a long day with two intense matches but our Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team managed to close it out in the end against strong competition.
For the first game of the day we met newly formed BIG Clan and there was a lot on the line. Besides a chance to qualify for the iconic Las Vegas event, the match had a lot of rivalries going, as BIG fielded four former mousesports players, namely Fatih „gob b“ Dayik, Johannes „nex“ Maget, Nikola „Legija“ Ninic and Johannes „tabsen“ Wodarz. A really close series ended in our favor after a huge comeback on Mirage were we didn't lose a single CT round.
Won 2-1 against @BIGCLANde , wasnt the most pretty game but it was intense :D Very fun to play against the old mates. Now time to play HR.— Chris de Jong (@chrisJcsgo) January 9, 2017
The confidence boost came in handy, as we were able to beat HellRaisers in the deciding match of the day.The 2:0-victory on Cobblestone and Mirage means we are going to Vegas! It will be the first CS:GO event in a long time in the „Entertainment Capital of the World“ and fans are looking forward to seeing the best teams battle in the first tournament after the Major.
