Redemption POA replace AGO at DreamHack Open Rio

Redemption POA have been named as the replacement for AGO at Dreamhack Open Rio after the Polish side pulled out of the event.

AGO withdrew from the Brazilian event two days before it is set to kick off, citing medical issues, with reports in Poland suggesting that Dominik "GruBy" Swiderski is currently recovering from an ear infection.

Redemption POA recently qualified for the LAN final of ESL Brazil Premier League Season 8, with the team looking to continue their form at DreamHack Open Rio, their biggest tournament ever.

AGO’s spot will be filled by Redemption POA

The Brazilian squad will be cast into Group B alongside Sharks, Valiance, and W7M, taking on Renato "nak" Nakano's troops in the first round of the double-elimination group stage.

The groups for DreamHack Open Rio now look as follows:

Group B is a joke
2019-04-17 20:37
Switch W7M & Sharks with Furia & INTZ to have balance groupe! 5 only good team : (named from the best to the worst) Avangar, Valiance, Furia, EUnited, INTZ (who is borderline to be in the worst) 4 in one group actually... Only seed 2 in group B ! Would be logical to have Valiance FURIA AVANGAR EUnited splitted in 2 groups with INTZ & R.POA on one group and Sharks & W7M in the other
2019-04-17 20:46
#1 AVANGAR #2 Valiance #3 FURIA #4 EUnited #5 INTZ #6 Sharks #7 W7M #8 R.POA
2019-04-17 20:48
I think it will be : Group A : 1 AVANGAR 2 FURIA 3 EUnited 4 INTZ Group B : 1 Valiance 2 noobs (🦈) 3 noobs (🐂) 4 noobs (🤖) Playoffs: Avangar VS noobs (🦈) 2-0 FURIA VS Valiance 2-1 AVANGAR VS FURIA 1-2 FURIA Crowned at home with the difficultest road.

It´s not impossible. If FURIA plays like they played against NRG last time, they´ll have a great chance to win this. I still don´t understand how they lost that BO3 (a lot of luck on Overpass for NRG´s guys).

Mano, mas o Rio de janeiro é uma bosta. Se tu parar pra ver um noticiário aqui, meu irmão, é um sentimento de raiva/tristeza. Domingo mesmo, 6 nego armado de fuzil assaltaram uma padaria em um bairro aqui. Tipo, 6 fucking fdps pra assaltar uma padaria, mano, vsf esse lugar. Tipo, o estado em si, é legal, tem até uma área aqui do estado, que é considerado um dos lugares mais seguros do brazil, Engenheiro paulo de frontin, mas a cidade em si, é uma bosta.

They could get Tricked, Virtus.pro, Sprout, ATK, Nordavind, ALTERNATE aTTax, Giants, MVP PK and Movistar Riders as well since Denmark, Poland, Germany, South Africa, Norway, Portugal, South Korea and Spain don’t need a visa to attend Brazil. If they wanted to invite only Brazilian team, they why not paiN? Or DETONA? Imperial? I’m not sure, maybe these guys are dark horses and next Astralis, good luck to them for sure, but that’s a really weird move.

Tricked and Sprout are gonna be playing in Copenhagen games this weekend so they wouldnt work. Nordavind and Movistar Riders are gonna be playing in the CG BYOC qualifier. MVP has the Asia ESL proleague this weekend. Itd just be much easier to get a team from the same country where the event is, finding a team short notice. As to why they invited this br team over pain/detona/imperial, i have no idea.
