dignitas beat LDLC to win MLG qual.

dignitas won the first European Championship Qualifier for MLG X Games Aspen following a 2-1 victory over LDLC (16-5 on de_dust2, 9-16 on de_inferno and 16-13 on de_nuke).

Fresh off swapping their ingame leader following a run of poor results, dignitas proved that change is sometimes necessary as they became the first European team to qualify for MLG X Games Aspen next month.

The Danish team, who now have in Finn "karrigan" Andersen their commanding voice, kicked off their campaign with a 2-0 victory over uber n00bz before moving past Titan and Virtus.pro with similar scorelines to set up a thrilling final with DreamHack Winter champions LDLC.


karrigan's leadership seems to be working for dignitas

The first map of this best-of-three series, de_dust2, went the way of dignitas, who cruised to an emphatic 16-5 victory. LDLC, who had defeated ESC and Epsilon in the previous two stages, then levelled things up with a 16-9 success on de_inferno, but dignitas proved to be the stronger team on the decisive map, de_nuke, as they sealed a 16-13 win.

2014-12-20 10:48
They are playing with fetish now.. and fetish is better player and better igl then gla1ve.
2014-12-20 11:00
Dont get your hopes too high up. :)
2014-12-20 11:23
Yeah that was probably why he was kicked from dignitas.

As a player, gla1ve is like way stronger individually. Not as good an IGL though.

2014-12-20 02:35
And people said they shouldnt kick fetish, he was old and he was shit, Titan now should do the same with Ex6tenz
2014-12-20 02:36
Your analogy between Fetish and ex6 really sucks, they are far too different ingame leaders and players in first place
2014-12-20 02:37
mhm
2014-12-20 03:04
Theyre the same, both have the shittiest mid round calls ever, shit fraggers, and they base their game in set plays.
2014-12-20 03:07
i wouldnt say ex6tenz does set plays anymore ever since titan went picked up shox back then, he's just shit and idk why iorek is still a stand in, he's pretty shit at GO. I know for a fact fetish was a set player, it's why he was shit.
2014-12-20 03:58
Iorek is still a stand-in because it's the holiday period, there's no rush to pick anyone up soon
2014-12-20 04:23
Ummmm did you see how he played ScreaM in the entirety of Titan... He made him play completely different to how he does in Epsilon and he was bottom fragging cause ex6tenz is a shit player and leader. In epsilon Scream is a top tier player, ex6tenz never knew how to play scream...
2014-12-20 12:49
Karrigan isn't really known for his fragging either
2014-12-20 04:22
I assure you that he is not as shit as fetish/ex6tenz plus they didnt get him for his fragging, they got him for his leadership which is loose and compliments talented fraggers that dig have
2014-12-20 04:26
Fetish isn't a shit fragger...
2014-12-20 06:55
one online bo3 doesn't mean kicking fetish was the best idea, not saying it was a bad idea.

Ex6TenZ is the reason why kennys is carrying. 1) ex6 create strats relying on kennys. So kennys frag more. 2) ex6 never frags. So kennys frag more.
2014-12-20 05:12
Now imagine if Happy can play around KennyS also? It's the same IBP do with skadoodle they always play super defensive and letting skadoodle open the map up, Ex6TenZ is just like a meat shield, he never does shit other than calling ofc

LDLC won 1 round as T
2014-12-20 02:39
LDLC threw away a good number of rounds with yolo rushes. Also, Dignitas had some pretty good clutch moments that made a big difference.

2014-12-20 03:24
nice!
2014-12-20 02:46
dignitas is the most talented team (individual skills) in the world. They needed a good experienced igl as karrigan. I want to see a fnatic vs dignitas atm.
2014-12-20 02:51
HAHHAH... no. ldlc, fnatic, even nip (-xizt), vp (-taz) and ibp, etc. all have more talent than them.
2014-12-20 03:03
that ibp gave it away 2/10
2014-12-20 03:16
skadoodle is a better awper than cajunb . azk is a better rifler than karrigan. swag is a better rifler than dupreeh. hiko is a worse rifler than device but compared to everyone else on that team he's better. and finally, dazed is a better rifler than xyp9x. ez mode. idiot.
2014-12-20 03:27
Nice comparison mate. You compare people who have different roles, I rate 10/10
2014-12-20 05:17
u mad coz bad dig much strongest then ibporno
2014-12-20 07:53
cajunb is way better allround than skadoodle, so much for your analogy and it is mainly device who handles the awp now. Also if you really wanna compare it should be AZK and Xyp9x, karrigan and DaZeD and the switch between cajun and device. Not that such comparisons can be used for much, also since you only focus on one area of the game, the aiming. Theres a lot more to this game than just aiming, which you would know if you had any ingame experience at a decent level.
2014-12-20 10:07
xyp9x is one of the best clutchers in the World he made so many of them yesterday, he's probably the best in dignitas to keep calm when the situations happens
2014-12-20 11:18
what a retard xD pls don't make me laugh more
2014-12-20 12:45
hahahahaha. u are totally deluded. an have no clue, swag better than dupreeh, yes??? NO loooooool. dazed better rifler than xyp OMG. u need sleep ASAP.
2014-12-29 11:46
"even"? common man, f0rest and Get right are the two best players who have played the game
2014-12-20 03:25
i don't care too much about past glory. they should have quit when they were no longer willing to put in the hours if they wanted to be considered the best riflers in the cs history books.
2014-12-20 03:28
They just got a second place on a major tought
2014-12-20 03:34
yes. they are still willing to practice for a few weeks prior to the biggest tournaments but not for the rest of the year. i have nothing positive to say about players like that. it's just negative for everyone in the scene except their own lazy asses. nip are on vacation/complete real life mode doing nothing but promotional work for nip for 9 months of the year and spend the remaining 3 to actually practice ahead of the majors. hate it. toxic team at this point if they keep up this pattern of punching the small tournaments in the face.
2014-12-20 03:36
So they work for just 3 months (according to you) and are the most successful team of 2014? Well, they are doing it right.
2014-12-20 10:13
They're not the most successful team of 2014 in my book. They were successful in the beginning because the CS:GO competitive scene was still underdeveloped - how anyone fails to see this is beyond me. But NiP fanboys will forever be irrational kids who love their mancrushes. I like some of them, too, but if you can't see what I just said it is purely because you don't follow the NiP players enough. Just go to their social media profiles and check out what their everyday lives are like. They are the definition of what haters typically call "sellouts" who sepend more time making NiP chocolates and burgers than they do deathmatching.
2014-12-20 19:53
Not a fanboy, really. Trophies plus prize money. If they aren't #1 of 2014, they are pretty close. All for "three months work".

2014-12-28 19:49
dream on. this isn't 2013. (back when dig was indeed tied with the best in terms of individual skill).
2014-12-28 23:33
aww 2013 loool WW was good that year. nothing called DIG in cs:go @ 2013. so wtf? an NO they have the most skilled lineup in terms of pure firepower. mayb ldlc or nip but rest.. just no. an dont say VP or navi or somee shit..an no i didnt say fnatic, cuz i just dont like em. but they just have a deeper understanding of the game as a whole an better teamplay atm. respect for that(pronax/Devilwalk/carn) is the guys to thank for it IMHO .

Where did you see fnatic forfeiting after 13-2? 1st. First half ended 12-3 for LDLC, so it couldn't even be 13-2. 2nd. I can get you a screenshot of 16-13 if you want. It's just not in HLTV archives.

2014-12-20 15:16
I feel like ppl underestimate DIGGY overall, sure they choked a couple times. but ppl seem to forget why its called choke, cuz they played THE BEST CS out of all teams in multiple tourneys, while then crashing out in quarters or semis. i still remember Gfinity, never seen a team play so good cs in cs;go EVER. anybody thinking they are not top 5 are a lunatik IMHO;) an i dont care that they just changed 1 player. the core players been there so long, they will win a big LAN soon. an when they do, they will run over everybody, an it wont even be close.
2014-12-20 15:21
