Imperial ease past GODSENT to qualify for DreamHack Open Summer

Imperial have sealed their place at DreamHack Open Summer after defeating GODSENT 2-0 (16-9 on Mirage, 16-3 on Train) in the grand final of the European closed qualifier.

Imperial and GODSENT made it into the final round of the qualifier after beating AGO and Valiance, respectively, in the semi-final stage, both by 2-0 scorelines.

Both finalists had made it to the last stage on the back of great individual performances from young talents. In Imperial's case, it had been Mathieu "ZywOo" Herbaut, who temporarily replaced Asger "AcilioN" Larsen on the roster, leading the charge, while for GODSENT it had been Ludvig "Brollan" Brolin doing the heavy work. 

Cph Games 2018 champions Imperial through to DH Summer

The final kicked off on Mirage, Imperial's map pick, with the Swedish side opening things up with a successful CT pistol. Nemanja "nexa" Isaković and co. responded immediately in a force-buy, however, and strung four rounds together to take control of proceedings.

GODSENT responded with their own four-round streak, but Imperial showed great composure and lost just a single round before switching sides. In the second half, the Swedes still rallied back after losing the pistol round, but Imperial quickly retook control of proceedings and locked down the map, 16-9 scoreline. 

The Copenhagen Games champions carried that momentum into the next map, Train. This was GODSENT's map pick, yet Imperial kept shutting the Swedes down with a very tight defence, losing just a single round in the first half.

Now on the CT side, GODSENT took the pistol round to keep their hopes alive, but it was all in vain as Imperial would quickly wrap up the series with a crushing 16-3 scoreline.

2018-04-30 12:40
ahahha you funny idiot men, well done you find 8 bad matchs in 2years playing and more than 150 matchs with insane carry, he have less bad matchs than the biggest part of the pro players can you turn on your brain before say shit?

+1 zywoo really good, the rising star of France i think
2018-04-30 14:29
He is good but you said "No bad matches" and I only took ratings that were below .65. I saw a ton that were still bad but not that low. /closed
2018-05-01 22:14
when its only 8matchs in 2 years we can say no bad match, find 10pleyrs with same ratio and who carry hard often like that
2018-05-02 16:19
No bad matches mean none whatsoever and I only picked matches that were below .65 rating. I saw plenty that were still bad. Besides he's carrying in T3 with n notable international events in a long time and absolutely no notable LANs. Put him in a few high profile events with him showing good then let's talk about him being that good.
2018-05-02 23:19
stop say shit you are retard. that's the last message i sended you.
2018-05-03 00:06
If I happen to be retarded then I wouldn't have a grasp on English like this and be able to properly use it. "ZywOo has no bad matches" Yes he does He has no top tier experience and any decent team he plays he loses against so he isn't the god tier player everyone says he is I applied logic to the situation and thus, provided evidence to back my logic. Next time please don't argue with no evidence or facts to back it and start insulting due to you losing the argument. Proper grammar and spelling also helps so you can seem believable in the argument. Have a nice day! /closed

2018-04-29 20:40
no, just stand-in and he said me in twitter dm he will probably not playing this dh summer because of he have his bac test at the same date (big test for diploma, idk if my words are good i dont speak good english im french) and after he got the bac he will join a top team (june-july), he already have projects and offer for this date but he can't say me if it's a french or inter team :) but yes i agree with you this man is insane and i hope to see him at tier1 level

I hope to see him in a team with Shox, KennyS, ex6 and Smithzz.
2018-04-29 22:01
lets hope for shox kennys ex6 zywoo apex/kio/rpk
2018-04-29 22:03
you can hope for but shox and ex6 said in french itw many times they will play with smithZz and they want a sniper and a fix (sniper : zywOo or kennyS ; fix it could be RpK, kio, NBK-, bodyy, a french subtop player) but shox don't want to play with nbk or apex
2018-04-29 22:13
You do realize that NBK and shox dont has the same view of the game and dont want to play together right?
2018-04-29 23:44
yes that's what i write at the end, and if shox dont want to play with nbk its not for ig reason it's because of his personnality and his values out of the game :) i said nbk up just for show exemple of french fix
2018-04-30 00:07
Its already confirmed that the 5th guy will be Maniac
2018-04-30 11:27
source? i don't saw that and im pretty sure that's wrong
2018-04-30 12:24
Maniac has been talking more with Kevin then before and Kevin talked about trying Maniac in new team I cannot promise he is 100% there but atleast Kevin is thinking about taking him :p
2018-04-30 13:31
okk maybe
2018-04-30 14:43
yes but i think it would be kennyS or zywOo because they are both awpers
2018-04-29 22:10
Well ZywOo is a hybrid if I'm not wrong. I've seen him rifle as much if not more than awping so he could still be added with kennyS. It's unlikely, I agree but i can still dream xD
2018-04-29 23:26
yes he is really strong with riffle too, and you're right he can be in the same team of kennyS and riffle but for me it's a waste awp talent
2018-04-29 23:28
Ouais, je comprends ce que tu veux dire. C'est un peu comme swag dans Torqued, qui, d'apres moi, est plutot bon avec le AWP mais koosta et steel l'utilisent plus souvent (en meme temps swag n'est pas des plus genials dernierement).
2018-04-30 00:27

2018-04-29 20:41
Sadly. I hope he will join them soon
2018-04-29 20:53
i think not because he will play in tier 1 teams, maybe inter but probably french team (he said me on twitter dm he already have project) but after this dh summer and he cant play at this one because he have his studies test at the same date
2018-04-29 21:31
He'll join a French team right ? I hope an international team for him tbh
2018-04-29 22:07
il m'a dit qu'il avait déjà des projets mais qu'il pouvait pas encore me dire si c'était fr/inter car c'est top secret pour le moment :p
2018-04-29 22:20
Ah ça serait cool qu'il soit dans le projet de shox aussi. Fin bref, on verra alors ;)
2018-04-29 22:21
ouais je suis d'accord mais on verra oui :)
2018-04-29 22:22
lol he will play with 0.75 rating on lan
2018-04-29 22:32
lol no, he played a lot of french lan and played insanely all times, frecnh lan are not on hltv but on vakarm or flickshot (french website like hltv) and there is no noobs teams its all the frecnh subtop like: aAa(the actual team of zywOo, or some interestings mix with french subtop players and amanek devoduvek sometimes, envy-academy, ldlc, ares, ParisGamingSchool, ex-limitless, vexed.fr(with kqly), dizlown and other goods teams who participe to inter events and leagues like mdl for someones

Imperial is actually the organization, they started out as MANS NOT HOT. And yea I think AcilioN was one of the founders of the team but I'm not a 100% sure.
2018-04-29 23:02
To my knowledge it was initially AcilioN, tenzki and nexa who started the team. EspiranTo then joined with kalinka and they formed MANS NOT HOT. Short after, kalinka was replaced by nukkye cause the team roles didn't fit perfectly. nukkye took over primary awping from EspiranTo who is now secondary AWPer and everyone's happy :D They eventually got signed by The Imperial who is a British organisation. I believe ZywOo was just standing in for AcilioN today who must've had personal things today. Plus AcilioN is IGL.
2018-04-29 23:31
no, he is really good on lan, i know you said that because you never saw him in inter lan, in the french scene it was the same before his first lan everybody says he is a cheater or a onliner and he come in french lan many times and prove to everybody he is just a god and carryed out his team
