x6tence Galaxy win DreamHack Winter qualifier

x6tence Galaxy have claimed a spot at this year's DreamHack Open Winter event after beating Syman 2-1 in the grand final of the European closed qualifier.

There was no shortage of drama throughout the qualifier as Syman, who had raised eyebrows after beating Vitality in the opening bracket, reached the final after beating two top 30 teams, ex-Space Soldiers and AGO, with both teams raising suspicions that the CIS side had been cheating.

From the other side of the bracket came Swedish team x6tence Galaxy, who squeezed past LDLC and Fragsters in three-map series with great individual performances from Tim "⁠nawwk⁠" Jonasson in both matches.

BARBARR's x6tence Galaxy top DreamHack Winter qualifier

André "⁠BARBARR⁠" Möller's men took the lead in the series with a hard-fought victory on Train, where Nicolas "⁠Plopski⁠" Gonzalez Zamora shined with a 30-bomb. Syman left it late to lock down Mirage as they let the Swedes come back from a 5-15 deficit, only to wrap things up in overtime.

The series came down to Inferno, where Syman went into the break with a narrow one-round lead after overcoming a 3-6 deficit. The CIS side started the second half the sprightlier and further added to their lead, but all of a sudden they ran out of steam, with x6tence Galaxy putting the game to bed in the 29th round.

gg not ez for cheaters
2018-10-28 23:58
Syman very suspicous, this needs to be checked thoroughly
2018-10-29 00:00
disbalance is really fishy, also in the last couple rounds syman looked like landodgers.... vitality, ex-ss or ago definitely should be the ones doing through
2018-10-29 00:52
What do you mean looked like lan-dodgers?
2018-10-29 02:04
They were basically throwing
2018-10-29 02:26
So the idea is they threw because they didn't wanna really make it to the LAN because some of them were cheating...?

We might see the qualifier replayed, Syman are NOT getting away with the attention they brought here and DreamHack should see it’d be better to replay it than to let Syman fuck it up like they did. I’m glad for x6tence, they earned their way to the final fairly but the path Syman took should have some replays, ex-SS vs whoever they replace with, then winner of that match vs AGO, then the final yknow?

why would they dodge? they could win and go to the lan aswell. They dont have to cheat in lan and maybe loose, but all spend payd and even get money for just make it to the lan. So all of you saying they dodged, stfu
2018-10-29 09:53
u know they can earn money betting on themselfs.. so they cheat and earn a ton of money by defiting teams like vitality or ex-ss..

if they eventually get banned i think is a clear case of landodging, which means they threw this match, in my opinion the ban for cheating and for throwing should stack
