Liquid, TS, CLG qualify for DH Malmö
By: stich
Time: 2016-02-22 08:26
Game: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

Team Liquid, Tempo Storm, and CLG are the three North American teams who have secured spots at DreamHack Masters Malmö via the North American closed qualifier bracket.

The $250,000 DreamHack Masters Malmö event taking place from April 12-17 in Sweden's third largest city will see eight invited teams (most of whom fall into our top eight Global Ranking) battle with eight who have advanced via four separate regional qualifiers, two for Europe and one apiece for North America and Asia.

The North American qualifier for DreamHack Masters Malmö similarly featured eight invited teams such as Cloud9, Liquid, and Renegades battling eight teams coming from an open qualifier for three spots to the Swedish tournament.


hen1 had a phenomenal performance throughout the qualifier

The single elimination, best-of-three bracket saw the likes of Echo Fox, Splyce, NRG, and OpTic drop out by the round of eight, with the latter two teams playing close games against Cloud9 and Tempo Storm respectively.

The first decider game to take place was between North American rivals Liquid and CLG with the former team sporting their newfound addition Kenneth "koosta" Suen as well as the talk-of-the-town in Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev.

The series was a complete blowout as Liquid dismantled CLG 16-1 on de_mirage and 16-4 on de_dust2.

The second semifinal was a repeat of the IEM Katowice North American qualifier final as Cloud9 and Tempo Storm dueled for a slot; the Brazilian team clinched de_inferno 16-8 whereas Cloud9 took de_train 16-10.

The final map saw Tempo Storm overwhelming Jordan "n0thing" Gilbert and his men on their T-side as they finished the first half up 12-3 however a minor attempt at a comeback by Cloud9 did give the Brazilians a moment's hesitation before they closed out de_dust2 16-8.

CLG and Cloud9 then locked horns in the third place decider to settle which team would be the third and final to represent North America in Malmö.

Despite a sluggish start on de_cache, CLG put up a defensive wall on their CT side and took the map 16-12. The second map of de_cbble was also a story of CLG's strong defensive game as Stephen "reltuC" Cutler & co. took the map 16-3 off of the back of a 12-3 CT side.

Brazilianas are to strong for NA and too weak for eu XD
2016-02-22 08:49:18
I think TS has a good chance against VP, Astralis and the US teams oc.
They might not win the bo3 against the EU teams, but they will make a dent and become stronger.

Im just worried that these wins TS had will get to their heads and think that they are the best in the world and when they meet some real competition and lose they will tilt.

Please LG. You need to prepare them for eu and not let them become divas because they own the US teams. They need to be on their A game in europe and not tilt if they lose.
2016-02-22 08:54:13
VP, Astralis

Ayy lmao ? Based on what?
2016-02-22 09:28:42
VP has been trash for a long time, don't even try to deny it
2016-02-22 09:36:12
well even though VP is trash atm they have always been strong against USA teams.
2016-02-22 10:24:22
yeah, the keyword is USA
2016-02-22 10:25:40
I remeber when VP was playing vs KeydStars and Snax said that its like playing vs bots xd
2016-02-22 10:28:42
yeah maybe at the time but they would get trashed by LG nowadays

too bad they can't even qualify for any LAN event

VP is shit now and Astralis Choke more than Loda x Richard Lewis.
2016-02-22 11:32:17
They know it. Dead (the manager) told them before their game against cloud9:"If you want to go to europe and play with the best, if you want to be the best in the world you need to play with the best. So let's focus, don't throw rounds..."

Basically they know NA is only adoor to EU, and they are aware that EU is in another level.
2016-02-22 11:59:31
Great to hear because i think this team is on the rise. I really think you need to look up to the bigger teams and be humble to become one of the top teams. That means you cant let wins get to your head.

But that is great to hear.
2016-02-22 12:45:55
This system was not fair, ill explain
Liquid vs RNG , 16-10,16-13
RNG loose and get kicked out with no chance
Liquid vs CLG , 16-1,16-4
CLG loose and get a second chance
HOW IS THIS FAIR TO RNG WHEN THEY ARE VS THE BEST NA TEAM :(
poor RNG, they have the worst luck!!
2016-02-22 08:53:50
Clg just lucky I guess they don't deserve it all they did is beat shit clown9 TS and TL deserve it though
2016-02-22 09:03:35
I feel so bad for Renegades,
There group for the MLG major has Cloud9, Dignitas and Gambit,
How is that not unlucky,
imo,
Dig>RNG>C9>Gambit
:(
2016-02-22 09:06:30
+1, should have been a lower bracket or something, otherwise it's pretty unfair considering you can get lucky with the bracket

2016-02-22 12:15:46
So happy for Liquid and TS. TS for repeatingly beating the best NA teams when people said it was a fluke and also Liquid seem to be improving.

Also kinda funny how quickly gob b forms mediocre players to a decent team. They're improving rapidly.
2016-02-22 08:58:58
is he coaching a team?
2016-02-22 16:20:30
He's playing for NRG.
2016-02-22 16:23:06
:O

when tf did this happen?
2016-02-22 16:24:12
Round about a month ago. gob b and legija moved to NA to play with ptr, SileNt and just9n. Already beating top 5-10 NA teams without much effort (it seems) and taking maps/close games of the top 4 of NA. But they're not consistent yet.
2016-02-22 16:26:42
cool, thanks :)
2016-02-22 16:41:42
Should be RNG, Liquid and TS
2016-02-22 09:00:38
+1
2016-02-22 09:43:07
Why did clg get a 2nd change after losing the first game and rng didnt? Seems unfair
2016-02-22 10:19:00
yeah, it sucks
2016-02-22 10:38:37
because RNG lost against Liquid while CLG defeated AGG
2016-02-22 10:39:01
Actually cause clg survived till ro4.
Renegades had to play liquid in ro8 which was shit luck, clg only had to play AGG and enemy. So really it was just a shit bracket setup tbh, really easy for clg
2016-02-22 11:07:26
Thats his point
2016-02-22 11:13:29
should have done TS vs Liquid
2016-02-22 09:02:53
Why did renegades have no chance unlike clg fak u
2016-02-22 09:05:12
What is renegades ? Is it a team ?
2016-02-22 09:12:24
Yeah, the team that was actually good enough to fight against Liquid on the 2 same maps that CLG got shat on
2016-02-22 09:15:31
who wanna be champion need beat everyone
2016-02-22 11:21:56
you can't hope chose your Enemy's
2016-02-22 11:22:26
just stupid format.. they had to create lower bracket...
2016-02-22 10:59:58

The teams at Malmo make it seem like another Major. Valve should attach the tag of a major on Malmo just because the competition here is so good.

Sidenote: Valve's shit rule that fucks up Liquid's chances for Columbus makes Malmo so much more exciting for TL.

Koosta might turn out better than skadoodle. Koosta rifle and pistol game is strong
