AVANGAR breeze past Besiktas; forZe annihilate Asterion in Rotterdam opening matches

AVANGAR and forZe have secured victories in their DreamHack Open Rotterdam opening matches against Besiktas and Asterion, respectively.

The first match of day one saw AVANGAR take on Besiktas on Overpass in group A's opening match. The European mix team, featuring stand-in Steven "⁠blackie⁠" Groeneveld, secured the first pistol round thanks to a triple kill from Anastasia "⁠kr4sylya⁠" Khlobystina.

A force buy from AVANGAR shifted the momentum into the Kazakh five's hands, and the team persistently outplayed the defence, with Dzhami "⁠Jame⁠" Ali landing an AK-47 triple kill in the process. Besiktas were only able to produce two rounds over the entire half, concluding their defensive campaign with a worrisome 2-13 deficit.

qikert demolished Besiktas, concluding Overpass with a 1.93 rating

A consecutive pistol round in the way of AVANGAR effectively served as the last nail in the coffin for the underdogs, as a pistol buy from Besiktas fell through, as did a force buy on the leaders' map point, concluding Overpass in 16-2 fashion for Alexey "⁠qikert⁠" Golubev and company.

Group B's opening match witnessed forZe collide with Asterion for a spot in the winners' bracket on Inferno. The Russian collective kicked off to a fruitful CT-side start, as a pistol round victory was ensured by Almaz "⁠almazer⁠" Asadullin who posted a triple kill. The defence kept the pressure up to a five-round lead, after which Asterion finally posted their first digit of the half.

The prior mentioned digit proved to be all she wrote for the underdogs, as forZe demonstrated extreme confidence on the defence, at times even cocky with aggressive plays towards Apartments and Banana. A 1v1 between Bogdan "⁠xsepower⁠" Chernikov and Bernardus "⁠Bernard⁠" Stornebrink very nearly meant a second round for Asterion, but the Russian AWPer culled the last T, concluding the first half 14-1 in favour of forZe.

xsepower stood out on Inferno with a 2.05 rating

A consecutive pistol round, this time on the offense, ensured a brisk conclusion to Inferno, as Andrey "⁠Jerry⁠" Mekhryakov and his men made quick work of Asterion at 16-1.

That's what i mean by choking DK is closest when it comes up to professionalism in working as a team in the benelux scene but they look very similar to Astralis before their great successes

no, the funny thing is that these female players are all actually like global / faceit lvl10 players but are still comparatively super shit. Meanwhile this Asterion team is a mix I think... And I don't think any of them consider themselves "pro". And if one of them does, all I can say is that they're very ambitious :)

There are no fully paid players in the Netherlands in CSGO besides ChrisJ and Crucial, and maybe FASHR in Endpoint back in the day. Defusekids pays maybe a few 100 per month, mCon doesn't exist anymore and Asterion pays even less than DK. Besides that there are just dutch level 10 players playing together at qualifiers. Most dutch people are out of CSGO in general or never really got into it. A lot more were in COD 4, Battalion, R6S, LOL, Rocket League, Fortnite, etc.
