HellRaisers qualify for DH Open Austin

HellRaisers came out on top of the European closed qualifier for DreamHack Open Austin following wins against BIG, mousesports, and Vega Squadron, securing their place at the $100,000 event taking place from April 28-30.

Earlier today, the DreamHack Open Austin European closed qualifier was played out with eight teams (four of which were invited, while the other four came from the open stage played on Saturday) fighting for a single spot at the $100,000 event.

The big surprise of the qualifier was the Russian-Ukrainian mixture Vega Squadron, who defeated GODSENT and Kinguin on their way to the final, while HellRaisers passed BIG and mousesports in the first two rounds.

ANGE1's HellRaisers succeeded in yet another qualifier

The two then met in the grand final for the spot at DreamHack Open Austin and it was the European concoction that prevailed in the end, winning Mirage 16-10 and Inferno 16-12.

With HellRaisers qualifying for DreamHack Open Austin, the list of teams is now following:

Brazil Immortals  United States Liquid  Denmark Heroic  Kazakhstan Gambit
France G2 United States Cloud9  Europe HellRaisers  Other NA closed qualifier

Only one spot remains to be determined, which will go to the winner of the North American closed qualifier that is currently underway.

Great job, i can only see two teams that are better or as good, that is G2 and Gambit :) Bye NA :/
2017-03-27 00:35
Nice bait
2017-03-27 00:46
What bait? He is right. HR is probably top3 team at that event with G2 and Gambit.
2017-03-27 04:38
and they just recently beat G2 in BO3 so their chances are good
2017-03-27 08:24
Oh really? Link to that recent bo3;) Didn't happen. Last time they played G2 had their old lineup and still won
2017-03-27 08:25
Estonia Delan0 
Well they won 2 bo1s but that doesnt really matter. I mean the veto is different for sure and HR will always be an underdog against g2 but considering how bad g2 is atm they have a solid chance against them in a bo3 as well

Usually IMT wins tournaments like this, when all teams are t2.
2017-03-27 00:52
rofl. remember how IMT won the major qualifier? Oh wait G2 smacked them, and they will this time too. G2, HR and Gambit >>> IMT
2017-03-27 04:39

HR good team atm, but I hope G2 can win this. Biggest competition should be Gambit and HR.
2017-03-27 04:40
ADMINS! Hr won Inferno 16-12, not train, train was the decider which was not even needed.

So we have to wait another DH until we See BIG compiting in a T1 championship. In my opinion BIG really deserves a spot. Maybe we just habe more patience. So good luck to HR!
2017-03-27 08:34
"So we have to wait another DH until we See BIG compiting in a T1 championship." But this tournament it tier 2 at best
2017-03-27 08:39
Germany B4ldur 
Yeah, you're right at some point. But I suppose, that C9, G2 and Immortals are T1 teams unlike the others. I just thought it' d be great if BIG can Show their skill not in all T2 tournament like DH Leipzig or the Mountain Dew League, which is a high League, but i thinken that league is a Bit to weak for BIG

If G2 dont meet immortals before final, and dont end in the final anyway, then they should consider their future- Only immortal should be able to beat G2 in bo3.

RIP MOUZ. If you can't beat this qualifier dark times are coming.
2017-03-27 16:54
they had to play with their coach cuz denis was sick, they prolly would have 2-0ed them with healthy denis after they crushed them on HRs first map 16-8
2017-03-27 18:55
gg HR <3 gj Zero and STYKO
2017-03-27 18:09
lucky that mouz had to play with their coach :< gl tho
2017-03-27 18:54
