Ghost beat Rogue to book semi-final berth

Ghost have progressed to the semi-finals of DreamHack Atlanta after edging past Rogue in Group B's winners' match.

The final match of the day in Atlanta began at a fast pace, with Ghost bouncing back from a pistol round loss with a successful force-buy. That marked the beginning of a dominant run from the Canadian team, who were in control of proceedings for a large period, even after an anti-eco round went awry as they ran into a full B stack.

It was only when they were down 2-7 that Rogue finally managed to get a foothold in the game, with Mathias "MSL" Lauridsen's troops keeping a tight defence for the remainder of the half to cut the gap to three rounds before switching sides.

steel & co move on to the playoffs

Now on the offense, Rogue won the pistol round and the subsequent anti-ecos to restore parity at 9-9. The game then entered a frantic period as rounds went back and forth and neither side could stamp their authority, but a trio of Desert Eagle kills by Kenneth "koosta" Suen in the 24th round turned the game on its head.

Ghost kept a water-tight defense after that and locked down the map at 16-13 to book a spot in the last-four stage of the tournament, while Rogue will fight for their tournament lives against the winner of the elimination match between Vitality and Fragsters.
