Singularity win CPH Games
Singularity won the 2017 edition of Copenhagen Games after defeating Swedish mix dreamchasers 2-0 in the final (16-13 on Mirage and 16-12 on Nuke).
The Danish team had already caused a major upset in the last-four stage, beating German side BIG on just two maps to reach the final, just 48 hours after coming through the BYOC qualifier.
In the title decider, Singularity were pitted against Swedish mix team dreamchasers, featuring three members of GODSENT, Ninjas in Pyjamas' backup member Jacob "pyth" Mourujärvi and former Property member Joel "emilio" Mako.
Singularity shock the scene and win Copenhagen Games
The series began on Mirage, where dreamchasers got off to a great start, cruising to a 5-1 lead after losing the pistol round. Singularity then tightened their defence, with the half ending in a close 8-7 scoreline in favour of the Swedes.
Singularity came from the break looking very lively, winning five of the first six rounds to jump out to a 12-9 lead. dreamchasers would then win four in a row to retake the lead, but the Danes picked themselves up and took four rounds straight to lock down the map, 16-13.
Next up was Nuke, where the first half ended with dreamchasers taking a narrow 8-7 lead despite at one point being up 6-2. Now playing on the Terrorist side, Singularity won seven of the first nine rounds to bring the scoreline to a 14-9 advantage. With no room for error, dreamchasers still strung some rounds together, but there was no stopping the Danes.
