Bravado qualify for DreamHack Open Winter over INTZ

Bravado have defeated INTZ in the grand final of the North America closed qualifier (16-10 on Inferno and 16-5 on Dust2) to book their spot at DreamHack Open Winter 2018.

In the opening bracket, INTZ earned their way into the closed qualifier taking down FURIA, before opening the closed part with a difficult three-map series over David "DAVEY" Stafford's Spacestation. The Brazilians then marched through the semifinals, easing past eUnited in two maps, reaching the grand final.

On the other side of the bracket, the South Africans of Bravado defeated Luminosity in three maps and squeezed by Mathias "MSL" Lauridsen & co. to meet the Brazilians in the final.

Sonic's 1.63 rating helped Bravado secure their place at DreamHack Open Winter

Vito "kNgV-" Giuseppe's INTZ kicked off the grand final on Inferno, with a slated 4-0 start as CTs, but Bravado brought the deficit to a minimum, before eventually topping the half 9-6 as Terrorists. In the second half, INTZ once again got off to a smooth start, racking up three in a row, but, in the end, the South Africans’ defenses held the line to take the 16-10 map victory and series lead.

The series then moved on to Dust2, where Bravado came right out of the gates on the CT-side in dominating fashion, securing the 14-1 lead at halftime. After the break, INTZ rallied back to stamp four on the board, but the South Africans eventually picked up two, closing the map 16-5 and the series 2-0, securing their spot in Jönköping,.

South Africa kinda looks like that though.

Fine south africa the region, not south africa the country because south africa the country is pretty white/european No need to generalise all the people of a region on a stereotype

average HLTV user will think they cheat
2018-10-29 07:13
Usually I don't think many cheat, but keep an eye on Sonic, either he's a talent or a fraud.
2018-10-29 07:25
Sonic is just a natural talent. Before he played CSGO he used to play Team Fortress 2, and back then everyone was falsely accusing him of cheating. Aran worked hard to get where he is now.

They won't make it to Quarter-final.
2018-10-29 07:25
Who gives a crap, seriously? Fact is, they qualified for a LAN so their hard work is paying off. Even if they don't reach the quarters, it's valuable experience that they'll benefit from in the end.
2018-10-29 07:58
Triggered much?
2018-10-30 14:26
Not really, just saying.
2018-11-01 05:54
Pretty happy to see Bravado make it to a tournament. They've been slowly grinding away in NA this year and it's good to see it pay off.

No one bats an eye when a Turkish or Russian/CIS team takes a European spot but the world starts bleeding out its nose when a Brazilian/South African team take an NA spot. Just EU things
2018-10-29 09:17
Russia/Cis are european countries they simply do not belong to the EU Mr. Burgerking.
2018-10-29 18:45
Bravado and INTZ are part of the NA scene now. Deal with it
