100 Thieves pull out of DreamHack Open Winter

The highest-ranked team announced for DreamHack Open Winter 2019, 100 Thieves, pulled out of the tournament, with a replacement yet to be announced.

DreamHack Open Winter 2019 will take place on November 29 - December 1 in the famed Elmia Convention center in Jönköping, Sweden, with eight teams competing in the standard DreamHack format for a $100,000 prize pool. The team list was set, with 100 Thieves headlining it as the fifth-best team in the world, but it has now been announced that they will not be able to attend the event.

The Australian squad forfeited their spot at the $100,000 event

DreamHack Open Winter overlaps with the finals of ECS Season 8, a league 100 Thieves did not participate in this season, and ends shortly before the ESL Pro League Season 10 Finals in Odense, which is a 5-hour drive from Jönköping. 100 Thieves have not revealed why they decided to skip the event, nor have DreamHack yet revealed the replacement for the Australian team.

The team list for DreamHack Open Winter is now as follows:

scared cause SG is nerfed xaxaxaxa

2019-11-21 17:37
exactly, the gun is still OP, it's just a smoke more expensive. of course, some teams won't sacrifice a smoke / he just to play with the SG, but if the T side has a good economy, I can still see 1AWP and 4SG

in effect it is previously, sg plus flashbang were purchasable for the same amount, now only ah consequently, the sg now carries an opportunity cost
2019-11-21 17:06
the sg always carried an opportunity cost
2019-11-22 00:14
which was less ergo nerfed
2019-11-22 02:48
You implied before that the sg didn't carry an opportunity cost, which was what I was addressing
2019-11-22 09:57
given that all guns do, that is naive

The opportunity cost of the SG should be compared to it's main replacement (AK47), not to a Glock or a P250. And it's opportunity cost was 50$ before, which is a decoy grenade, and that it's literally nothing.
2019-11-22 15:24
Not really, $50 can add up later, even if it is negligible

Cause the same was true for the AUG. The $200 increase of the AUG didn't affect people buying kt because it was still too good of a gun to not cough up more for. The SG is still less than the M4 on CT side and with how T-sided the economy is in this game, the SG will still definitely be bought. This is probably an unpopular opinion but I think one of the fixes to the economy would be that CTs should get $800 as well if they defuse a planted bomb, just like how T's get $800 for planting the bomb. Because of how hard it is to hold a rush to plant the bomb w/out utility, T's can easily get a free $800 and with how cheap the weapons are that are needed to do it (a Pistol a mac 10 a couple flashes and now even a galil), it makes it hard for CTs. This eould also encourage more CTs to actually invest into retaking a site since they gain an additional $800 for defusing the bomb
2019-11-21 17:24
Thats just a complicated solution to a simple problem. All thats needed is the SG needs to have small debuffs and be $3400. It will then become an argument between utility and AK or SG and none. Pro teams will undoubtedly go for an AK with utility unless they have a strong economy which is basically the CT's fault anyway
2019-11-21 17:51
It's still a nerf, it's just not enough of a nerf to warrant replacing it with the AK
2019-11-22 00:15
+1 Why are retards over complicating this.
2019-11-22 06:49
At no point would it be worth retaking a site in an unfavourable situation just for $800 when your saved equipment is worth $4000+... This would also kill second round for Ts, allow CTs to have 5 m4s after a first round defuse, build a good economy going into the first T buy round allowing a second full buy, etc. in a game that’s already CT sided... It would also defeat the purpose of T half buys with the goal of getting bomb down... The meta would *completely* change.

"In a game thats already CT sided" LOOOOOOL Have you even watched.. not played.. but WATCHED any CS in the last couple months?? It's T-sided as shit. You can literally force with good weaponry every round, and every gun the CT's lose really screws them once they lose a round. On T-side, a bomb plant literally gives them 1/5 of the money they need for a strong buy, but a CT team can't have a good economy unless they don't lose guns for many rounds. Even then, all it takes is one good play vs CT's that are playing retake to come back from a situation where the CT side is dominating.. Now if you've actually played any CS recently, you actually feel how tilting it is to lose a teammate randomly pushing vs a forcebuy as a CT and having no money once we lose one round.

Don't talk about "watching" CS and what pro's are doing, that is not relevant to the entire CS community. Maybe you are faceit level 10 and have 10k hours, but in my elo (LE-SMFC), ct rounds are way easier than T rounds. Simply because the utility usage it's not exceptional (grenades are being used properly most of the time, but no pro level) and it's easier to hold an angle than to take an angle.
2019-11-22 15:38
#204
 | 
United States ferric 
So do T's never use flashes in your games? They never change the way they peek? (Straight up wide-peek, wide crouch peek, jiggle peek, slow peek). You can't simply hold an angle in CS, especially online.

Did you even read the entire comment? And also, if you "can't" hold angles in CS, how do you play CT? Straight P90 rush?

Utility, flash peek, adad to bait out a shot from T. youtu.be/3eyO5YGrg5E This video goes over it pretty well... You dont just hold angles in cs.. you will die to any half decent player if you just hold every angle.
2019-11-23 16:11
last 3 months on LAN, most maps CT sided hltv.org/stats/maps?startDate=2019-08-23.. Gets worse if you go further back. NT though “LOOOOOL”. Clown.

You put LAN only. Put in online events and half the maps are T-sided... And the ones that are Ct-sided barely win the majority while the T-sided ones win by a significant amount.
2019-11-23 16:06
A) Who cares about online? B) Cache and D2 were T-sided long before the Krieg meta. Stop.

A) CSGO is not just the pro scene, it's literally all of CS B) What does that have to do with proving CS is t/ct sided or not? You stop.
2019-11-24 03:22
You’re the one who brought up the pro scene. There’s literally a reply telling you that not all CS is pro lmao. You’re trying to change the economy because you think the Krieg has broken the economy balance in favour of the Ts. I say the game is CT sided and show you that CTs have won more rounds even during the Krieg meta. Your counter is that on 2 maps out of 7, Ts win more rounds... the same 2 maps which they’ve always won more rounds on, which not only makes the Krieg and economy irrelevant for that point, but it also doesn’t change the fact that the 5 other maps in the pool are CT sided. This is either the worst bait of all time or you’re braindead.

why

because this isnt tier1 if they win no one cares if they lose they are trash
2019-11-21 17:30
no its just to dense of a schedule. players need rest before the season 10 finals. i wouldnt play it either with no rest inbetween. i think they would of had 1 or maybe 2 days of rest between dreamhack and season 10 finals. sure its only a 5 hour drive but everyone needs a break exp when the finals are worth so much more.
2019-11-21 17:47
Schedule plays a role yes, but even without epl I think they would have pulled out of this tier3 tournemant.. idk why they even accepted this invite. I mean look at those teams, Crazy, Heroic, Furia just tier3 cs
