North defeat HellRaisers to win DreamHack Tours

North have been crowned DreamHack Open Tours 2018 champions after defeating HellRaisers 2-0 in the grand final of the $100,000 tournament.

The title decider in Tours began on Mirage, North's map pick, where the Danes got out to a quick 3-0 lead after winning the pistol round with a B execution. A triple-kill from Kirill "ANGE1" Karasiow in the first full gun round then put HellRaisers on the board for the first time, with the Ukrainian's team riding that momentum to take the lead.

North would not let the game run away from them, however, and strung four in a row, with Philip "aizy" Aistrup raising eyebrows with his stellar entry fragging on the A site. The final stages of the half were highly contested as neither side could stamp their authority on the game, with the Danes taking a 9-6 lead into the second half.

HellRaisers came out of the break determined to turn things around and levelled the score at 12-12. Daniel "mertz" Mertz, who had mostly been a spectator up until that point, then finally stepped up to the plate and began to contribute with some multi-kill rounds, inspiring North to take the map in the 28th round.

North win their first title of 2018

Next up was Inferno, where HellRaisers took the pistol round, only to lose the following anti-eco. That trend would continue for the rest of the half as HellRaisers' round wins were few and far between, with North taking a total of 12 rounds into the second half.

The Danish team further added to their lead after a great pistol round in which they sandwiched HellRaisers' players in banana, forcing them to push A, where they got wiped out.

HellRaisers responded on a force-buy and put together a small run of rounds to bring the deficit to 8-13 and put pressure on North's players, who, however, would not let a comeback happen and won three of the next four rounds to take the map and get their hands on the coveted DreamHack trophy.

Denmark home of CS in 2018?
2018-05-21 20:04
HR just need more LAN time as a team. They have too many Visa issues. The event as a whole was poor standard, teams like Godsent, nV and Gambit need major team shuffles in my opinion. As for North, I still think this line up isn't good enough but MSL will end up kicking the wrong players as usual
2018-05-21 20:05
He will kick everyone but Aizy and a year later, FC Kobenhavn file for bankruptcy. Thanks, MSL
