Grayhound, ORDER, NASR to DHM Stockholm Asia Closed Qualifier

With the Oceanic and GCC open qualifiers done, three new teams for the DreamHack Masters Stockholm Asia Closed Qualifier have been found: Grayhound, ORDER and NASR.

As Tainted Minds was handed an invite to the closed qualifier, the DreamHack Masters Stockholm Oceania Open Qualifier saw the remainder of the Oceanic top four—Grayhound, Chiefs and ORDER—vying for the two Closed qualifier spots, with teams such as Legacy and hoping to upset.

aliStair and co. advanced to the second part of the qualifier

The aforementioned four teams made it to the semi-finals, with ORDER taking on Legacy for one of the spots. The BO3 started on Mirage, where Chris "⁠emagine⁠" Rowlands's troops put up a near-flawless CT side, 13-2. Despite losing the second pistol, ORDER closed out the map quickly, 16-5.

Cache was a different story, as a back-and-forth first half saw the favorites trailing 8-7 before the switch. Legacy impressed on the T side, grabbing a 14-11 lead, but couldn't close out the game against an in-form Jay "⁠Liazz⁠" Tregillgas. Thanks to the 20-year-old's 42 kills, ORDER was able to close out the map in overtime, 22-20, and advance to the closed qualifier.

Grayhound opened up the series against Chiefs by picking Overpass and putting up a strong Terrorist-side display. Switching to the defensive side of the map with a 10-5 lead made it easy for Christopher "⁠dexter⁠" Nong and co. to close out the game shortly, with a perfect CT side making it 16-5.

Tyler "⁠tucks⁠" Reilly' team started the second map even worse, claiming only two T-side rounds on Mirage, unable to penetrate Grayhound's defenses. Things picked up after the switch as Chiefs started racking up rounds, but Grayhound was able to close it out after a bit of struggle, making the score 16-12, 2-0 for the series.

In the open qualifier for the GCC region, NASR wasn't really challenged, getting into the grand final with ease. There they met ShotCallers, who stunned them in the first half of Mirage, securing nine unanswered rounds. NASR was able to then string four rounds together, salvaging the half, and allowing them to take a 16-12 map victory after an impeccable 12-1 T-side.

The action then switched to Train, ShotCallers again starting decently, 5-1 as T. However, Mohammed "⁠k1tkat⁠" Al-Nuaimi had a good game and brought the game back in his team's control. Despite a loss in the second pistol, NASR was confident in the second half and concluded the game with a 16-10 scoreline.

 NASR K - D +/- ADR Rating 2.0
44 - 30 +14 72.2 1.29
