Game: Counter-Strike 1.6

DreamHack have announced that Power Gaming will be unable to attend DreamHack Summer, forwarding their invitation to Lions.

Finnish-based Power Gaming were originally issued an invitation to the DreamHack Summer 2011 MSI Championship at the same time as Moscow Five and fnatic.

However, the team will for unknown reasons not be able to attend the Swedish event and their invite have been recovered by DreamHack.

To fill the slot left empty by Power Gaming, the organizers have forwarded the invitation to Lions, who will be the third Swedish team to receive an invite.

While attending DreamHack Summer, Lions will compete in the main tournament as well as the Inferno Online League FINAL4, where they are up against dateam, fnatic and SK Gaming.

Lions will have the following lineup at DreamHack Summer:

 Niklas "niko" Johansson
 Frej "kHRYSTAL" Sjöström
 Emil "FYRR73" Karlsson
 Mattias "Snajdan" Andersen
 Dennis "dennis" Edman

The participants list for the DreamHack Summer 2011 MSI Championship now look as follows:

Natus Vincere mTw
SK Gaming playArt
x6tence Kaos
fnatic Lions
Moscow Five Millenium
BYOC Team #1 BYOC Team #2

HLTV.org will be on site in Jönköping to bring you all of the action happening at DreamHack Summer 2011.

2011-06-13 22:01:41
+ pita :)
2011-06-14 14:38:09
pita isn't igl too.
2011-06-14 15:27:13
pita can be IGL ;)
2011-06-14 16:23:24
Maybe, but he isn't as good as snajdan :) Of course I mean igl, not aim or whatever :)
2011-06-14 18:27:30
yes ofc he can be better,man Snajdan is just name now. He was imba back than now just a name. Pita can be strat caller for sure ,and he can shoot ppls head :)
2011-06-14 21:23:02
they need igl and oldscool like threat...
2011-06-13 22:02:12
they have plenty of both in snajdan ;)
2011-06-13 22:06:34
how is threat old school LOL
2011-06-13 22:23:51
no i think the lions like oldscoolers like snajdan....
2011-06-13 22:26:58
snajdan is the best igl of all time, there's no need to replace him. :)
2011-06-13 22:03:07
Best IGL of all times ?
2011-06-13 22:09:04
he may be the most skilled igl, but he's far to inconsistent and won too few titles to be considered #1
2011-06-13 22:10:31
gob b is the most skilled igl.
2011-06-13 22:11:24
zeus ?
2011-06-13 23:01:10
imo gob b is the best fragging IGL.

but who knows this is just my opinion
2011-06-13 23:45:24
nak frags more consistent imo, but gob b have some really good moments as well :D
2011-06-14 02:09:35
ed1k >>>>>> gob b
2011-06-14 04:09:15
gob b igl ? IMBA than *__*
2011-06-14 14:39:01
TaZ was most skilled igl
2011-06-13 23:55:25
At the moment, Arcadion is.
2011-06-14 00:00:58
ahahhah n1
2011-06-14 01:19:33
I mean 'most skilled' is the best fragger as igl. If you get me right I don't know why you reacted so strange. His K/D ratio is 1.17 atm, when for example zeus has 1.14, snajdan has 0.87, kuben has 1.09 etc...
2011-06-14 15:34:40
in Full gaming/SoA times maybe.. now he dont frag so much
2011-06-14 09:42:36

isnt kuben IGL now days?
2011-06-14 02:29:00
yeah thats why I worte he was :) but all world championships they won under Taz lead
2011-06-14 09:40:07
+1 , snajdan teams > carn teams [ I AM TALKING ABOUT PAST, I KNOW THAT NOWADAYS CARN >>>> SNAJDAN] , dont get me wrong carn fan's , but imo the only reason that snajdan doesnt got the level of carn it's because he quitted cs and started to play wow instead , that's the main reason , do you guys remember of SK|Fisker
SK|VildeN
SK|ahl
SK|SnajdaN
SK|SpawN ? snajdan igl's ability's are just insane , really hope that i can see him once again leading SK , probably wont happen but he already proved his value.
2011-06-13 22:10:44
Snajdan is no where compared to cArn, YES he is an ingame leader, but cArn is a leader, is someone that makes top players and form them, is a great ingame leader and got abilities to clutch and frag and even madfrag when he is in his best events.

Snajdan is the best ingameleader of gunrounds i have to agree, and and one of the best, and Snajdan teams were never better than cArn's because if you compare SK and fnatic skill whise and strat whise you will understand that it's not even possible to compare between them.
I can't see him leading SK because he don't have the skill that is needed to lead them in the best championships, and to add something, i think that this team will fail hard:)
2011-06-13 22:19:21
Do you remember WCG Sweden 2008?
2011-06-13 22:24:06
probably , but like i said , the snajdan's problem was that he quitted for too long , but opinions are opinions and i respect yours
2011-06-13 23:20:04
I'm terrible sorry to inform you that vilden was IGL of that SK line-up =(
2011-06-13 23:34:46
if you think so
2011-06-13 23:43:46
he is right u r not
2011-06-14 00:37:34
I am right u r not
2011-06-14 11:33:32
he is right, you're not!
2011-06-16 12:36:15
once a pon a time
2011-06-14 14:39:30
lol, no. you havent even played with or against him so how would you be able to say such a thing? snajdan has pretty old school tactitcs. pretty boring ones if you ask me. fake fake fake fake back and fake again = snajdan style
2011-06-13 23:44:00
He was good in those times ,not now ;)

"unknown reasons"

well tbh i dont think pwr gaming even exists anymore (the cs 1.6 team that is), dunno why they just dont go out and say it. or they're thinking that they'll come back eventually. what do i know..
2011-06-13 21:57:05
that's it you dont know shit :P
2011-06-13 22:07:27

Sad that PwR won't be in the DHS but I think Lions is a better team and it will be more exciting with them than PwR. Not hating.
2011-06-13 21:59:17
PwR has been dead for 3 months now. Why you guys dont get it?

2011-06-13 22:01:33
By your own comp I think
2011-06-14 14:39:56
there are some teams that will play a quallifier a day before DH finals, the top 2 will advance in the groups of DH, these teams are teams such as ESC.International, DTS, TCM, Semxorah, alchemist unleashed, at least these are the teams that worth mentioning till now. They will bring their own pc's and play for the qualification
2011-06-13 22:05:54
thnx
2011-06-13 22:07:33
semXorah?
2011-06-13 22:11:51
brazilian team, they are quite good here, but I don't think they'll achieve anything there
2011-06-13 22:35:38
I know, what I don't know is that semXorah orga could sent them traveling.
2011-06-14 00:11:51
sX from brazil :P
line up: felippe1, kalotz, lul4, atx, brtt
a bit different from their actual line but this is the one which'll be playn on DH

PwR sucks? Maybe because they havent play together for 3 months. Lurppis said in sk that there isnt such a thing as pwr anymore.
2011-06-14 02:14:56
nice!!ESC Gaming should be there too
2011-06-13 23:44:56
Good decision imho. Hopefully DTS will make it through the BYOC tourney.

There's always a lot of stress involved with hosting a professional tournament, like the one at DreamHack, with a high amount of teams. Besides this, maybe the organizers want the tournament to be more "exclusive", with not too many teams.
2011-06-14 08:26:28
I think the organization of the DreamHack gave more priority to Starcraft 2.

That's true as well. Starcraft 2 is this year's main game. But I believe the organizers wanted to emphasize the exclusivity part, too.
2011-06-14 09:03:07
did sX/pA won some qualifier?
2011-06-14 00:59:12
is delpan gonna play for SK or what? sick of this situation to be honest..
2011-06-14 01:20:20
Yes, Delpan will play for SK.
2011-06-14 01:25:07
SK didn't pay and fnatic holding tightly.
How can he play?

fnatic have only asked DH to not let Delpan play without the contracts being delt with. They have no authority to demand it. The picture can be changed by you telling me that DH have announced anything regarding this, but I've surely not seen anything about the matter.
2011-06-14 01:48:14
same thing i know as well but i thought that guy was being very confident so i just asked!
2011-06-14 01:53:06
as long as DH haven't said anything, I don't see the reason to ask "how can he play?".
2011-06-14 03:06:29
its not 100% yet Greykarn at rakaka said they were going to talk about the situation. 2 contracts who "own" him?
2011-06-14 03:18:56
Well, fnatic see the reason to ask "How can he play?" There should be a compromise before his play.
2011-06-14 14:33:04

2011-06-14 01:37:41
Expected. Tomi said they haven't played for a while now.. only plastE is still playing.
:(

Surprising...NOT!
2011-06-14 02:54:43
hmmm...ESC, DTS, TCM, dateam, OK? tough byoc tourney! :)
2011-06-14 03:24:28
this setup looks very strong, i dont think all players are in the best form atm, but if theyd practice like this for ... lets say 3 months they should be thinking about top5 world imho
2011-06-14 03:40:35
We'll miss FX
2011-06-14 03:46:10
can anyone provide me with a source of all teams participating in the byoc event?
2011-06-14 04:12:11
it would be better if they replace finnish team to finnish team and not like this. + OK has some motivation as far i know so why they didnt replace PG?
2011-06-14 04:36:26
line-up playArt?

2011-06-14 08:18:36
looks good, only missing fX
2011-06-14 09:58:54
- playart, kaos, x6, millenium. + DTS, TCM, eSahara, ESC.

God damn joke that playart and kaos are directly invited.
2011-06-14 11:31:12
There were qualifiers, they didn't get directly invited. At least not x6 and kaos
2011-06-14 14:44:48
Well, doesnt make sense to have qualifiers in benelux and spain anyway since theres better teams elsewhere.
2011-06-14 15:22:56
well, spain & benelux qual. organizators have buyed a spot for DreamHack, so... =)

better if I'll see them in final haha, but this time hope mTw win :D
2011-06-14 17:39:17
I think lurppis said he's spending the summer in the USA, and natu announced already in april this year that he's quitting the game for now at least. The only player in PwR who I imagine has interest in the game anymore is plastE, who seems to be with OK now.
2011-06-14 11:52:05
Shouldnt the invite go to another finnish team instead to a swedish team? OK would deserve it.
2011-06-14 12:58:14
GL Lions :D
2011-06-14 15:57:50
hsbg pls?
2011-06-14 18:40:46
