Renegades, Heroic through to DH Atlanta playoffs

The first day of DreamHack Open Atlanta has come to an end, and here's a quick recap of the action with Renegades and Heroic topping their respective groups.

DreamHack Open Atlanta kicked off with the opening match for group A with HellRaisers capturing the first win of the day over Binary Dragons 16-10 on Cache, following Patrik "Zero" Žúdel's triple AK-47 kill to secure match point. 

In group B's opening match, Envy decimated Allan "AnJ" Jensen's new team NRG, 16-5 on Cache, unable to stop the human tank Cédric "RpK" Guipouy, who finished the match with a 2.08 rating.

Renegades secure their playoffs spot

Renegades went on to top group A, following their opening win against the NA Qualifier winner's Misfits, 16-9 on Mirage. The Aussies then duked it out with HellRaisers, where Justin "jks" Savage's men had an explosive 6-nil start on the T-side before Zero's quad-kill from connector secured them a comeback and a second pistol round, pushing the CIS roster to a 13-8 lead.

However, two impactful rounds from Noah "Nifty" Francis including a 1v1 clutch, closed the gap at 13-13, which saw Renegades reverse the lead and secure their playoffs spot in the 16-14 thriller.

es3tag has been a solid pickup for Heroic so far

In the other group, Heroic crushed GODSENT on Overpass, 16-7, as their newest member Patrick "es3tag" Hansen, showcased a few highlight rounds including a 1v1 clutch against the Swedes, who were using Jacob "pyth" Mourujärvi as a stand-in for this event.

Heroic faced Envy in the group B winners' match, where they took a decent 9-6 CT half on Inferno. Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom and co. tied the score at 9-9, after winning the second pistol round. However, Marco "Snappi" Pfeiffer won the following round for his team in a post-plant 2v2 situation, where the Danes eventually advanced to the semi-finals with a 16-9 scoreline.

RpK is so bad on inferno, he sucked even against Playing Ducks. And the great tactician Happy manages to lose to T3 teams, it's just ridiculous.
