Luminosity qualify for DreamHack Open Valencia over eUnited

Luminosity have earned a spot at DreamHack Open Valencia after defeating eUnited 2-1 (16-14 on Inferno, 13-16 on Overpass, and 16-2 on Mirage) in the grand final of the North American closed qualifier.

eUnited and Complexity had eased past their opponents in the quarter-finals before facing off over three maps in the semi-finals, with eUnited coming out on top. On the other side of the bracket, Rogue and Luminosity had both come close in their 2-1 series over Gorilla Gang and Bravado, respectively, before meeting each other in the last-four stage, in which the Brazilians secured victory in the decider.

The grand final kicked off on eUnited’s map pick, Inferno, where the North Americans' slow execute on B was immediately shut down by Luminosity. The Brazilians’ then picked up the anti-ecos and claimed five more, but eUnited broke the streak with a double-kill from Will "⁠dazzLe⁠" Loafman in the post-plant.

eUnited pressed, on breaking Luminosity’s economy to win three more, until the Brazilians’ firm hold on the A-site earned them the round win and set them up for a 10-5 half-time lead. eUnited began the second half by stopping the wrap-around attempt through CT-spawn to secure the pistol, but Luminosity took over on their T-side to rally back with three straight, 13-6.

Michael "⁠dapr⁠" Gulino then put eUnited back in the wheelhouse with three clutches to set the team up for a five-round streak. Luminosity then won their buy round, but eUnited were quick to contest with two as rounds went back a forth, until the Brazilians locked down the map in the 30th round.

The series then moved to Overpass, where Luminosity’s rotation to A for the plant was quickly recovered by eUnited, who claimed the CT pistol on a defuse and then took control of proceedings to secure 13 rounds straight. Finally, Lucas "⁠steel⁠" Lopes won the 1v1 post-plant on B to win the first round for Luminosity, who would go on to add a second to their tally before swtiching sides.

In the second half, Luminosity continued their reign on the CT-side with four straight rounds, but eUnited got their money and their wits together to reach map point. The Brazilians then snapped eUnited’s economy to win seven straight (13-15), but a late rotation to A and post-plant hold from eUnited resulted in an even series.

The decider came down to Mirage, where Luminosity came out of the gates with six straight on the T-side before eUnited could hold off for a round win. Luminosity remained in the driving seat through the first half for a 13-2 lead, which they followed up with three straight after the break to punch their ticket to DreamHack Open Valencia.
