HellRaisers through to Major qualifier

HellRaisers defeat Orbit 2-1 (10-16 on Dust2, 16-3 on Cache, and 16-5 on Mirage) in the DreamHack EU Regional Minor and have thus qualified for the ESL One Cologne Main Qualifier and also advance to the EU Minor final.

One more spot at the ESL One Cologne 2016 Main Qualifier was up for grabs at the DreamHack Regional Minor Championship in Tours and the showdown was between two Eastern European teams in the consolidation final: HellRaisers and Orbit.

With the Bulgarians utilising their usual stand-in Nikolay "pNshr" Paunin (as Simeon "dream3r" Ganev is not allowed to take part in Valve-affiliated events), it was Orbit who made the first moves towards victory with a 16-10 win on Dust2, mostly due to a formidable CT-defense on the second half of the map.


Another day, another wild performance from oskar

However, "Šťastný oskar, straszny oskar," as a Pole might say, and the 24-year-old Czech player mounted a superb performance for his team on the following two maps, and ultimately scored a +43 kdd, 113.8 ADR, and a 1.84 rating in the series, much of which was on display on Cache and Mirage.

Cache went HR's way following a 12-3 T-half and a cleanly closed out second half after they won the pistolround, finishing the map 16-3. Mirage similarly saw another strong T-half from HellRaisers (this time with a 11-4 score) and another quick second half gave no space for Emiliyan "spyleadeR" Dimitrov and his team to even attempt a comeback, with the map finishing 16-5 for HellRaisers.

As a result, HellRaisers have now qualified for the ESL One Cologne 2016 Main Qualifier and have advanced to the grand final of DreamHack Tours against Dignitas mainly for the difference in prize money and prestige.

The title should be 'oskar carries HellRaisers to Major qualifier'
2016-05-16 18:52
+1 Pretty much that. But I doubt a one man performance will get them through the main qualifier.
2016-05-17 10:01
Actually he almost carried them single-handedly to MLG Major. They lost 16-14 on third map + they had 14 rounds only because of oskar (1v4, etc)
2016-05-17 10:06
I remember. They lost a match they were winning 13:7 even with oskar performing well and simple underperforming... not very promising to be honest.

2016-05-16 19:52
Empire and fluffy gangsters dont deserve a spot, they should have had to face EU teams for their spots. Would rather much see Godsent and Orbit.
2016-05-16 19:57
Yeah this annoyed me too. So many good EU teams missing out due to lack of spots. I think CIS should have either only 1 spot (and EU has 3) or have to qualify through EU minor and EU minor has 4 spots. Although I really think Majors should be 32 teams (16 is too few for the biggest event in CSGO, look at any other top sport such as football, tennis, etc). Sixteen Legends and have an offline qualifier with 32 teams, the top 16 who go as Challengers to the Major.
2016-05-17 03:23
32 would be nice but would need a bigger prize pool to make it worth for all of them nearly double. Maybe 24 teams with 1.5mill pot
2016-05-17 04:47
