OpTic beat Ancient to win DreamHack Open Summer

OpTic have defeated Ancient 2-0 (Overpass 16-12, Nuke 16-14) to win DreamHack Open Summer and secure a spot at DreamHack Masters Malmö.

The grand final began on the Swedish team's pick, Overpass, which started off with the two sides trading back-and-forth as Nikolaj "niko" Kristensen and Fredrik "freddieb" Buö put up a clutch each.

Mathias "MSL" Lauridsen's triple-kill in the fourth round ended the shenanigans, but OpTic's streak soon came to an end when freddieb stood out once again with an ace on the back of a successful B fake. Not allowing Ancient to string rounds together, the Danes kept controlling the half and eventually reached their ninth, before more individual plays from freddieb and William "draken" Sundin gave their team a lifeline going into the CT side.

OpTic secure their first title since bringing on the Danes

Rene "TeSeS" Madsen opened the second half with a quad-kill in an aggressive post-plant stance to push OpTic to 12 rounds. Backs against the wall, the Swedes put up a valiant effort to come back into contention for the first map, but they couldn't catch up to MSL's team, who emerged victorious at 16-12, in the end.

Nuke followed with OpTic dealing first blood in the pistol round as Terrorists, but it was Ancient who ruled when both sides had full weaponry, as five rounds in a row went their way. Ismail "refrezh" Ali stopped the streak with a quick 1v4 clutch on the A bombsite, allowing his team to climb back and retake the lead, eventually switching over to the defense with a one-round advantage.

Alfred "RuStY" Karlsson kicked off the second half with four kills, helping his team get off to a flying start on their T side, with two clutches from draken extending their advantage to 13-9. However, OpTic tightened up the defense and a few comfortable rounds saw Ancient sweat under the pressure, as only another individual action from draken could break through. Kristian "k0nfig" Wienecke and niko continued to combine on the A site to bring the second map to even keel at 14-14 and the Danes didn't let go, bringing the series to a close at 16-14 to raise their first trophy under the North American organization.

It would be easier for Immortals to buy the MouseSports and put the MIBR line, so the current line of mibr would not worsen the image of the tag

Losses like this usually destroys Swedish teams. Losses like this is what made danish teams better. Swedes cant take losses like this. Hopefully im wrong and ancient continues with the strength they have displayed.

pretty shit & overrated player with an even worse personality tbh

Denmark CRAM3R 
Haha okay. I think CS need a few personalities like his, like your fellow Swede, Zlatan. He brings entertainment and a mentality that makes you worship them when they dont play well. I really do think Konfig is one of the best players in the world. Unfortunately he has like a lot of other players and teams have periods with bad performances.
2019-06-17 21:57
I find his attitude insufferable for someone who cannot perform good enough to back it up. At least when Zlatan did it he mimicked his attitude with his play. k0nfig suffers from a seriously inflated self-image
2019-06-17 22:06
If you take everything he says literally then you have no psychology at all, and you are clueless about banter and second degree. He's just having fun.
2019-06-17 22:28
I have no psychology? Lmao wtf does that even mean
