MAD Lions, Heroic qualify for DreamHack Open Leipzig 2020

The European closed qualifier for DreamHack Open Leipzig has reached its conclusion, with MAD Lions and Heroic locking down spots at the $100,000 event.

Once again a regional qualifier in Europe proved to be a gruelling process for the attending teams as the DreamHack qualifier hosted a multitude of closely-contested matchups to determine the two teams heading to the event in Leipzig.

The opening round of the closed bracket saw Secret push Heroic to their limit and SKADE bring the best out of MAD Lions in two narrow three-map series before the Danes ultimately prevailed. Meanwhile, Gambit Youngsters overcame the newly-formed Heretics side, while a 1.44-rated performance from Otto "⁠ottoNd⁠" Sihvo was not enough to prevent defeat for his team, CR4ZY, against Defusekids.

Both Danish teams qualify for DreamHack Open Leipzig

In the semi-finals, MAD Lions made short work of Defusekids in a swift 2-0 series to keep up their qualifying streak, just two days after the team had booked a spot at their first Big Event, IEM Katowice.

Concurrently, Heroic joined their Danish compatriots in qualifying for the Open stop in Leipzig with an all-round performance in the two-map victory over Gambit Youngsters, with Martin "⁠stavn⁠" Lund leading the charge with a 1.36 rating.

DreamHack Open Leipzig will take place from January 24-26 and have $100,000 on offer, with the final tournament slot going to the winner of the North American closed qualifier, which is currently underway. The team list for the German event is:

Even mertz has a lot of potential. He just needs more time.. And a chance in a T3/4 team.
