DH Las Vegas EU qual. finished

The European closed qualifier for DreamHack Masters Las Vegas has been brought to an end with fnatic, mousesports, Gambit and FaZe securing spots at the tournament which will take place this February.

The closed qualifier consisted of eight invited and eight open qualifier teams battling in a best-of-three single-elimination bracket. Even though most of the opening matches were won by the invited teams easily, mousesports had a tough time closing out their series against BIG, and GODSENT ended up losing to the Poles of PRIDE.

fnatic - G2 was the first deciding match of the qualifier and it seemed like the Swedes were determined to end their job for the night as soon as possible.

On their map pick, Cache, the whole team put up a good performance and won 16-4, but on Dust2 it was all about Dennis "dennis" Edman - the #20 player of 2016 picked up 31 kills in 25 rounds to win the map 16-9, and the series 2-0.

Despite their struggles against their old in-game leader Fatih "gob b" Dayik and his new team BIG, mousesports were in great shape in the deciding match against HellRaisers.

With Nikola "NiKo" Kovač and Chris "chrisJ" de Jong both firing on all cylinders, mousesports took down the Eastern-European mixture with ease on both Cobblestone (16-9) and Mirage (16-7).

Gambit and PRIDE met in a matchup that most CS fans weren't expecting to see in this qualifier. The CIS side lead by the veteran Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko easily took the first map, Cobblestone 16-5, but were edged out by the Poles on Overpass (16-14) to make the series go to three maps.

On the decider, Dust2, it was once again pretty straighforward for Mihail "Dosia" Stolyarov and co - 16-6 to secure a spot at DreamHack Las Vegas.

The final spot was decided between FlipSid3 and FaZe. Thanks to a perfect Terrorist side, Finn "karrigan" Andersen's team managed to secure Overpass with a convincing result. However, they weren't able to close it out on their own map pick - Mirage - as the CIS team put up a lockdown CT side.

The series came down Train, on which FaZe ran away with the first half, but took a lot of time to close out the map 16-11.

2017-01-10 01:26
Hijacking this comment. It's pure bullshit that dennis is on #20 of last year. Just rewatch yesterday's games. The guy is a freking beast.
2017-01-10 07:38
yes because that is how it works bro. He does well in some 2017 online match so he must be higher in the top 20 from a year before!! What even is this...

2017-01-10 13:17
Replying to here because there is false information! Fnatic vs G2's 2nd map where dennis got 31kills was Dust 2 and not overpass!

More than that, THE OLOFMEISTER, the best player of the world before his injury is getting back (not back at all). I want to see him against coldzera on ELeague Major!
2017-01-10 02:23
That's if they make it out of groups. Love to see Old King vs New King
2017-01-10 02:54

when is the NA qualifier tho
2017-01-10 06:07
DH looks sick but the only thing missing is a French team, g2 lost the qualifier but where's envy? I'd much rather see envy instead of one of the teams from the NA qualifier, maybe the envyus players will be split by then though.
2017-01-10 06:35
in china for WESG unable to play the qualifier...

2017-01-10 14:28
True, but Liquid and immortals now get a chance to qualify, even though they arent doing to well, they still are a low tier 1, or high tier 2 team.
2017-01-11 04:26
Its too bad NA has the same amount of slots as EU.
2017-01-10 10:29
So are you saying, that tyloo with just 2members of the squad are qualified for DH?
2017-01-10 10:39
Well done ScreaM
