OpTic through to DH Summer semis over Ancient

OpTic beat Ancient 16-10 on Mirage in the Group B winners' match to advance to the playoffs at DreamHack Open Summer.

The second winners' match at DreamHack Open Summer featured OpTic and Ancient. The T-sided Swedes gave away the first two kills in the pistol round but managed to turn it around, leading 1-0.

OpTic punched their ticket to the playoffs

OpTic claimed the first gun round victory with five AUG Kills to get on the scoreboard and secured four of the following five to lead 5-3. After OpTic finished the first half 8-7 ahead, Ancient won the second pistol round on defense to tie the game.

The Danish team's offense started to click after the 18th round as they picked up six of the following seven to earn five match points. Nikolaj "niko" Kristensen got the better of Alfred "RuStY" Karlsson in a 1vs1 to close out the game with a 16-10 final scoreline.

It appears the Danes aren't swayed by the possible layoff.

And Russians are the most ignorant in the world, they can only speak Russian, so their knowledge of the world is very limited, and so they also cheat in sports, doping.they will do anything not to lose, but inside they are losers, they just don't know.

Lucky bastards.They won like 5 rounds because they pushed in a site where Ancient only had 1 player.

Their fault that they have only 1 player at 1 site
2019-06-15 21:04
what kind of logic that? it's ancient own fault that they play 1 on that site. If optic went on the stacked site they would most likely lose, so either optic lose or they get lucky? FLAIR CHECKS OUT

Every time Ancient tried to make an aggressive play towards mid they would always rush A or B where there is just one guy.But every time they put 2 players on sites and 1 player on mid Optic would always go for mid control.Thats pure luck.
2019-06-15 22:09
Then fucking don't play a playstyle that relies on you not being unlucky lmao
2019-06-15 22:10
Exactly. Being unlucky one or two times happens, but if five times then it is not being unlucky it is you own fault.
2019-06-16 01:44
Well played!
2019-06-15 20:57
teses new danish god?
2019-06-15 21:02
Why OpTic not merge with North to make better team than current two? Pretty sure they could make it alive.
2019-06-15 21:10
because it wouldnt make that much better teams? just a bunch of sidegrades at best. if valde can make it as IGL then north will finally have more firepower. imo the real upcoming players are in heroic stavn&blamef
