Vitality have booked their place at DreamHack Open Atlanta after beating Vyalie Pitoni 2-0 in the grand final of the Europe Closed Qualifier.

The French team got to the grand final by beating Sprout and PANTHERS 2-0 while Vyalie Pitoni upset Vega Squadron and Valiance as they defeated both teams 2-1.

The grand final kicked off on Inferno and the CT-sided Vitality pulled no punches, finishing the first half 12-3 ahead. Cédric "RpK" Guipouy & company lost only one round in the second half and closed out the map with a 16-4 victory.

Vitality didn't lose a single map in the closed qualifier

NBK's team started Dust2 on the side and led 12-3 at halftime, just like they did on Inferno. The Frenchmen won the map 16-11 and took the series 2-0.

With this result, Vitality became the first team confirmed for DreamHack Open Atlanta which will take place on November 16-18 with eight teams and a $100,000 prize pool.

G2 are trash tbh. They're already retired in their mind, just here to take some easy money having fun with their buddies. Don't expect any hard work or consistency from them.

Retard nbk sucker incoming ?
2018-10-22 06:55
LDLC are looking very strong but I think they'll face a wall in ECS and probably soon in EPL, they can't beat top 10 teams yet, and I'm not sure if they'll become better than what they are now

S1mple was better skillwise than olof in 2015 with HR and flipsid3
2018-10-21 21:37
if he was the best player in the world he would still be able to carry bots. kennyS did it in late 2014 and early 2015, he had a retired RpK, ex6, and washed up maniac. He could still carry titan to top 10
2018-10-21 22:04
KennyS form in late 2014 and early 2015 is unrivaled to this day. Nobody has ever been better than him not even s1mple atm. Not even device, cold and olof at their peaks either.

good for them but how the hell they choked that 14-2 on nuke and twice 5vs3 against optic in q for iem chicago ; / DH most of time have shitty teams, IEM-s are most prestigious
2018-10-21 22:22
Zywoo Apex NBK Amanek Jackz Please please please !
2018-10-21 22:22
I really don't understand why they took Happy. Even Rpk, he's a solid player but they should have taken younger players, hungry to win titles
2018-10-21 23:38
Indeed, i think the lineup i wrote is the perfect combination of talent, experience, good IGL and raw fire power on everyone. Jackz, amanek and zywoo has proven to be really good against good opponents as well, so not so much of a gamble either. Would be a lot better than current G2 i think.
