G2 qualify for DreamHack Masters Dallas over AVANGAR

G2 become the second confirmed team to attend DreamHack Masters Dallas 2019 after defeating AVANGAR on Dust2, 16-2, and Cache, 16-8.

G2 and AVANGAR played the last match of the DreamHack Masters Dallas Europe qualifier, the consolidation final, which had one spot up for grabs at the event in Texas. G2 made their way mostly through the lower bracket, as they fell to Windigo in the semi-finals after an opening victory against Heroic. The French squad then won against HellRaisers and Valiance without dropping a map.

In AVANGAR’s case, the Kazakh side beat ex-3DMAX, 2-0, and Valiance, 2-1, before falling to Windigo, the first of two teams to make it through the DreamHack Masters Dallas Europe qualifier, in the upper bracket final.

G2 will compete at DreamHack Masters Dallas

The first map of the match between G2 and AVANGAR was the French team’s pick, Dust2, and although the CIS side took the pistol round on the CT side, the tables turned the following round as opening kills by François "AmaNEk" Delaunay and Lucas "Lucky" Chastang provided a 5vs3 afterplant situation and ended up with the score tied.

From there on out it was the G2 show, as the Frenchmen gave up but a single round for a 13-2 half, which they were able to hit home after switching sides and winning the pistol round, going on to close it 16-2.

G2 carried the momentum from Dust2 to the CT side of Cache, with Richard "shox" Papillon putting up a great performance early on. AVANGAR made it even, 4-4, but then it was G2 who once again took control and closed the half out 10-5. AVANGAR then won the second pistol round, but were again beaten by a forcebuy, after which G2 went on to close the map and match out comfortably, 16-8.

Don't be cocky ENCE fan your team was pure shit 6 monthes ago it's the first time , it was the laughingstock of EU scene during 5 years , it even became a MEME. allu and co aren't legends like kenny , shox :)

You can call JW , GTR , Edward , olof , friberg washed up players but in the top 30 that's all lol. If you watch kenny , shox stats they are not washed up , they are just not winning anymore because 2018 was shit and was the turnover of french scene.

The lineup is new (2 monthes) + a new player (1 week ago) and their performances are very good 16-3 16-4 vs valiance and 16-2 16-8 vs AVANGAR it's pretty good and they could have even beat windigo but unlucko kenny disconnect. It's very promising for the furutr

So many shox haters a few days ago, this must be confusing for them, because he keeps showing he still has the skills time and time again. I just hope they give the igl role to AmaneK so shox can focus on what he does best.

Let's see how they do it against best teams before talking about a comeback . Heroic, Avangar, Valiance are good but between that kind of teams and Liquid,Navi and especially Astralis there's a very huge gap.
2019-03-24 19:25
Thats true, but the fact that they win so convincingly against them tells me that they dont belong at this tier anymore but of course they are also not ready to challenge the likes of astralis or even navi in a bo3
