Titan win DreamHack Stockholm
Titan win DreamHack Stockholm SteelSeries CS:GO Invitational after beating NiP on the first and final map (16-10 de_nuke) and take home the first place prize of $7,500.
Coming to a rematch on de_nuke, Titan escaped the pistol round by the skin of their teeth as they won a one-versus-one for a four-round lead after Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg attempted a flank on catwalk.
Then it was Richard "Xizt" Landström, who pulled off a one-versus-three from the toxic area, as he killed the defusing Titan, while the rest had no time left. Together with an upper push the score was sitting at 4-2.
Following seven rounds were split 2-3 thanks to Adam "friberg" Friberg's four kills and Landström's combination with Lindberg, but Richard "shox" Papillon's triple turns it around for an eventual 10-5 before halftime.
Titan were undefeated in the tournament
Switching to the easier side of Counter-Terrorists, NiP needed the pistol round and got it after a successful lower bombsite defense, which took the match to 10-8.
Nathan "NBK" Schmitt was at the helm of Titan's first Terrorist round with his four kills including a one-versus-two, thanks to which Titan went on to take two more rounds despite a good attempt in the eco round, ending up in a one-versus-one.
The last few round were played offline, but it was Titan who pulled through and took them under their wings to win the tournament at 16-10.
