Gambit 2-0 Renegades to win DHW

Gambit have become the DreamHack ZOWIE Open Winter champions following a 2-0 win over Renegades (Nuke 16-12, Cobblestone 16-10).

With a powerful attack to lower through ramp, Gambit got off to a flying 4-0 start on Nuke before Renegades responded. The Australians only got two rounds on the board however, while Gambit took over once more, breaking their opponents economy over and over until it was 9-2.

Once again, Yaman "⁠yam⁠" Ergenekon's squad wasn't able to string more rounds together and got reset. Two desperate buys afterwards, Gambit got to a 12-3 lead.

The first map looked firmly in the hands of Mihail "⁠Dosia⁠" Stolyarov and company once they also clinched the second pistol round, but a forcebuy win gave Renegades a lifeline. They managed to win six out of the following seven rounds to get to double digits, though doubles from Danylo "⁠Zeus⁠" Teslenko and Abay "⁠HObbit⁠" Khasenov secured map point for Gambit.


The trio from Kazakhstan ruled on Nuke 

Justin "⁠jks⁠" Savage' double in a 2v2 on the lower bombsite delayed the map for two more rounds, but Dauren "⁠AdreN⁠" Kystaubayev's triple in the 28th finished off Nuke at 16-12.

Three kills from Dosia as well as a 1v1 gave Gambit the pistol round on Cobblestone, where they began on the CT side. A double from HObbit and Dosia's triple in two of the first three gunrounds pushed the CIS side to 4-1, but Renegades quickly equalized the score.

The following round was worth two and Gambit got the better of it, and only lost one more round before the half ended at 10-5 in their favor right after HObbit got another big play on platform.

When the pistol round and the first gunround also went Gambit's way comfortably, the Australians had little to no hope in the match as they were trailing 5-14. Renegades managed to get a few gunrounds and anti-ecos but ultimately couldn't come back as Gambit celebrated the victory at 16-10.

he has great analyses sometimes but he's also a massive fanboy NiP and SK are two teams that he for some reason don't seem to like, so he never really gives them much credit. Other teams such as Dignitas and Na'Vi he'll praise for everything

Dignitas and Cloud9, recent winners of huge tournaments, both go out in groups. Renegades and Gambit in the final. What is going on in Counter-Strike? Some unpredictability is nice, but when you cannot have any consistency it becomes really weird and boring to watch.

When luck is rewarded in the form of RNG things like this are bound to happen. Almost every game from teams in the same "tier" are a 50-50 nowadays.
2016-11-26 20:35
teams which get championship in recent tournaments will be relaxed too much ,loose themselves ,they may practice less and less and enjoy the prize they just earned, so they usually will get rekt in following touraments. just my opinion :D
2016-11-26 20:38
2 replies
It's not completely out of the water to suggest that. But I also think it's the case that recent tournament winners will feel a certain pressure to perform again, and then they can't live up to that.

Isn't it obvious? If all teams are even and you have no way of even guessing who will be favorites, what's the intrigue. Then there will be no "upsets" cuz there are no favorites. There will be no "surprises" because you expect anyone to beat anyone. There will be no unexpected results, because you expect things to be unexpected. The fact that you can have a team that's a clear favorite who loses to a lesser team is exciting! It's like "wow, did that rly happen?!". With everyone even, that excitement is lost.

There will always be favourites and underdogs. The thing is that right now the team quality is so high that difference between them is not as big as it once was. I think it's great, because batterings will not happen as often - meaning better matches - and when they do it's unexpected.
2016-11-27 15:18

Sure, there are small favorites and small underdogs, but you're not really THAT shocked if EnvyUs beats SK or Dignitas lose to Heroic. I just feel like everything is becoming a bit bland and without real drama. But I guess you and me just see things differently.

Glad for both Gambit and Renegades, the final was prolly the peak moment of their careers at least thus far (excluding Dosia, Zeus and AdreN ofc). Overall the tournament was very nice.

dosia is a top player who deserved to win couple of majors during this years , but he didnt and the main reason for this is he didnt get chance to play in a top team with skilled team mates .

Congrats Gambit and well played Renegades. AZR and jks were completely lost in this series sadly but frodo was bloody insane throughout the series. This is a good sign for both teams.
