Imperial defeat AGO; advance to DH Summer playoffs

Imperial have booked their spot in the DreamHack Open Summer playoffs, topping Group A with a 16-4 victory over AGO on Mirage.

The Group A winners' match kicked off on Mirage, where the Poles of AGO took the A-site with ease, but a triple-kill retake from Rokas "EspiranTo" Milasauskas secured the pistol. Imperial went on to claim the following anti-ecos, with Nemanja "nexa" Isaković and EspiranTo putting in most of the work to make it 4-0.

AGO finally got on the board in the gun round, but Imperial replied with two in a row, resetting the Poles. Imperial then marched on giving AGO no room for error as EspiranTo continued his dominance on the AWP with an ace in the 9th round (8-1). AGO managed to string together a couple of rounds in the remainder of the first half, but Imperial stayed in the wheelhouse with a 12-3 lead at halftime.

nexa led Imperial with an impressive 2.09 rating

On the T-side, Kevin "kRYSTAL" Amend and his men continued their dominance by securing the second pistol and the following anti-ecos to reach match point. A full buy from AGO kept the team alive with their first of the half, but in the following round, nexa came out on top of a 1vs1 against Damian "Furlan" Kislowski to seal Imperial's 16-4 victory and secure a spot in the playoffs.

Nope. They will never be top 10. You dont even know what it takes to achieve such thing. Its really rare to see teams like NRG who happens to be perfect combination of players to have potential in hitting that top 10 list. Imperial is far from top 10
