Grayhound qualify for IEM Sydney

With a 3-1 victory over ORDER (default, 13-16 Mirage, 16-10 Overpass, 16-13 Nuke), Grayhound won the Oceania qualifier and secured a spot at IEM Sydney.

Eight Oceanic teams competed in the IEM Sydney 2019 Oceania Closed qualifier, a double-elimination BO3 bracket with a BO5 final, where one spot for IEM Sydney was on the line.

Grayhound, the highest ranked team in the region, took down Control (2-0) and Breakaway (2-1) to reach the upper-bracket final, where they met ORDER who overcame Astral Influence (2-0) and Chiefs (2-1). Grayhound dispatched of their opponents fairly comfortably (2-0), earning a spot in the grand final, with ORDER earning a rematch after defeating Chiefs in the consolidation final, a very tight 2-1 game.

IEM Sydney 2018 was Grayhound's breakout event

Christopher "dexter" Nong and co. had a 1-0 map advantage going into the BO5, and started the series on Mirage, ORDER's map pick. Grayhound did take the early lead, 6-0 on the offensive side, but Chris "emagine" Rowlands stepped up to the task and helped his team fight back, securing a narrow, 16-13 win on the first map.

The action moved to Overpass, which was the Ollie "DickStacy" Tierney show as the 21-year-old stood out on both the offensive and defensive side of the map. ORDER was keeping in it during the first half, but after a force-buy win and a six-round streak in the second half, Grayhound closed it out 16-10, moving to Nuke.

It was another map heavily contested from both sides, Grayhound started well but ORDER found good momentum on the Terrorist side, finishing it with a minimal deficit, 8-7. They added the CT pistol to that and had a 12-9 lead before dexter pushed his team over the finish line with some great individual play, helping them take a 16-13 win, 3-1 for the series

Operating as a four-team single elimination competition, the leading team in each group respectively will take on the opposing team's second ranked team. This opening round will be on a best-of-three basis. The championship match will be where everything is on the line - a best-of-five series with the winner taking home a group stage ticket to the Intel® Extreme Masters Sydney.
