eUnited through to DreamHack Open Atlanta over Spacestation

eUnited have defeated Spacestation 2-0 (16-9 on Cache and 16-3 on Mirage) in the North America closed qualifier grand final to book their place at DreamHack Open Atlanta.

Spacestation was the first team to grab a grand final spot after easing past their opponents without dropping a single map. On the other side of the bracket, eUnited's performance was comparable, as they walked over FURIA to reach the final.

The grand final kicked off on Cache, Spacestation's map pick, where Michael "⁠dapr⁠" Gulino & company's stout CT side opened up the series with a 4-0 start. David "⁠DAVEY⁠" Stafford and his men then began to chip away at eUnited's lead as the two sides went back and forth until halftime, where the CTs came out slightly on top 8-7.

The series then moved on to Mirage. eUnited wasted no time on their T side to put Spacestation's backs against the wall, rounding out the first half with a dominating 12-3 lead at halftime. dapr & co. then marched through the second half, giving no room for error, winning four in a row to secure the map 16-3 and the 2-0 series to punch their ticket to Atlanta.

wdym who the problem is? I feel like all of them are solid players and each fill a role that goes with the current meta. I think they just need to solidify their strats and things(anti-ecos lol) and they can definitely go quite far. I don't think their problems fall on a specific one of them.
