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.
The second open European qualifier will be held on Saturday, December 20, while the second Championship Qualifier is scheduled for Sunday, December 21.
