Bravado to DreamHack Winter final over x6tence Galaxy

Bravado are through to the grand final at DreamHack Open Winter after defeating x6tence Galaxy 2-0 in the semis (16-2 on Nuke and 19-17 on Inferno).

The first semi-final at DreamHack Open Winter featured Bravado and x6tence Galaxy. The South Africans opened Nuke on the CT-side and secured the pistol as Aran "⁠Sonic⁠" Groesbeek got a double kill. Bravado kept the Swedes at bay in the first weapon round with Johnny "⁠JT⁠" Theodosiou and Rhys "⁠Fadey⁠" Armstrong's doubles, making it 3-0.

Linus "⁠Baaten⁠" Andersson almost clutched a 1vs3 in the fifth round but Ruan "⁠ELUSIVE⁠" van Wyk managed to kill him to win the round. Even though Baaten was unable to win that round, he clutched a 1vs2 in the ninth round to get his team on the scoreboard (8-1).

Bravado will face the winner of Heroic vs. ENCE in the grand final

Baaten’s one-man crusade continued in the 13th round when he clutched another 1vs2 to secure the round with an ace (11-2). After the first half ended 13-2 in Bravado's favor, ELUSIVE had a crucial 1vs2 victory in the second pistol to make it 14-2. The South African side picked up two more rounds to win the map 16-2.

Bravado's dominance was maintained on Inferno where they started on the T-side to win the pistol round. ELUSIVE and Sonic clutched a 2vs4 to secure the first weapon round and Bravado got three more to lead 6-0.

Tim "⁠nawwk⁠" Jonasson & André "⁠BARBARR⁠" Möller's double AWP setup brought x6tence Galaxy their first round. nawwk stepped up once again, this time in a 3vs5 in the following round as he got a quad kill to make it two in a row (6-2). Bravado hit back by taking four of the last seven rounds in the half, leading 10-5 at halftime.

x6tence Galaxy exited the tournament in 3-4th place

x6tence Galaxy tied the game at 10-10 after taking the first five rounds in the second half. nawwk clutched a 1vs3 with a Deagle to make it 12-12 and x6tence Galaxy acquired three map points by winning the following three rounds. However, Bravado managed to fight back and took the game to overtime.

Think this is either gonna be a banger of a match if bravado play like they have the rest of the tournament, however I feel like if bravado get nerves on the stage ENCE will slap them about.
