Fragsters defeat Tempo Storm to qualify for DreamHack Valencia

Fragsters have sealed passage to DreamHack Open Valencia with a 2-0 victory over Tempo Storm (16-5 on Dust2, 16-9 on Train).

Tempo Storm, who came from the open qualifier, had assured themselves of a place in the final match after defeating Imperial and ENCE, both by tight 2-1 scorelines, with Ricardo "fox" Pacheco leading the way for the newly-formed team with 67 and 80 kills, respectively.

As for Fragsters, one of the four invitees of the closed qualifier, they made it into the grand final following 2-0 victories over Nexus and Valiance, with the latter being a hard-fought series that saw Jacob "dragonfly" Lund top the scoreboard with a 1.41 rating and +18 KDD.

stavn was the highest-rated player in the grand final with 1.67

But it was dragonfly's 16-year-old brother, Martin "stavn" Lund, who had a breathtaking performance on the first map of the final, Dust2, with a 2.13 rating to help his team crush Tempo Storm, 16-5, and take the lead in the series.

Starting out as CTs on Fragsters' map pick, Train, Tempo Storm saw their opponents string five rounds together to take control of proceedings. Kevin "HS" Tarn's team still responded with a six-round winning streak, but the Danes were far too hot to handle and lost only three more rounds to wrap things up, 16-9, and book their place in Valencia.

wow they won 3 matches on 1st lan gj and thats vs shit gambit (after won major they arent that good) and even more shittier vp great, definetly they are LAN players. lets see after more lans (valencia, austin etc). now just stop, please.
2018-05-06 23:15
never said theyre lan players, just that theyre not onliners ;o you cant go to lan and beat a team like gambit while being onliners

if they arent lan players and they arent onliners, what are they then? <thinking emoji> btw they ARE onliners. because they won 3 matches on lan doesnt mean they arent.
2018-05-06 23:16
then theyre neither? they dont play out of their minds online, they dont suck dick on lan - theyre in between. its not just about them winning 3 matches, its about the way they played even in the matches they lost. but i see that youve already made ur mind up about this team so im not even gonna try to argue with you

2018-05-06 23:25
Going to be objective as well: if you beat a top30.wo team at lan, you are, by definition, not an onliner...

Jesus give them a chance to actually play some big LANs before snagging them off and accusing them of being on liners. They're a relatively new team who are only just getting going and they look exciting and decent. Support them instead, the scene would be fucking dull if we only ever saw the same old teams play (NiP, VP, fnatic etc).
2018-05-07 08:20
Either VP is very good team when they are facing FaZe (XDXDXDXDXD)

Not entirely correct but it has been the sort of dominating LAN game for a long time. LoL and Dota are quite popular here too, but obviously CS has had a scene for much longer. So partially true.

Danish IGLs have routinely picked up and given a chance to new fresh talent (kyearbye, magisk etc etc). So they get a spot in top teams, other players then get a spot in tier 2/3 teams and the whole scene improves. Sweden on the other hand had NiP and fnatic at the top both pretty much refusing to ever develop new talent or change lineups (until Rez/Draken anyway). Then the Swedish scene just got really stale instead.

Definitely. Just robbing Dragonfly and stavn and building a new team around them would be a good start. They might not be as good in a new team though as Fragsters seem to have genuine chemistry and natural team play (more like luminosity when they first started upsetting people)
