Gen.G and Complexity advance to DreamHack Open Anaheim

Gen.G and Complexity have claimed the two spots available in the closed North American qualifier for DreamHack Open Anaheim.

The team around Damian "daps" Steele, who for the first time had Hansel "BnTeT" Ferdinand playing alongside them as he has finally joined up with Gen.G in North America, advanced through the bottom part of the bracket.

There, they first went up against Joshua "steel" Nissan's Chaos in a three-map series before taking on Riot Squad. A huge performance on Dust2 from the Indonesian star (32-9, 2.35 rating) helped Gen.G secure a convincing series against the Pujan "FNS" Mehta-led side and clinch one of the two spots at DreamHack Open Anaheim.

Gen.G earned one of the spots in their debut with BnTeT

After unsuccessful attempts in qualifiers for IEM Katowice and DreamHack Open Leipzig, Complexity tried their luck for the third time and came out on top of the other side of the bracket, first defeating INTZ 2-1 before making it through over eUnited in the semi-finals of the qualifier.

The completed team list for DreamHack Open Anaheim, which will take place on February 21-23, looks as follows:

Bntet is always the same godtet. The question is, is geng better than tyloo? Either way, this team is just his stepping stone for a t1 na or eu team.

bntet needs to find a better team
2020-01-20 05:16
i'd look where he can go with gen.g if the results dont come in i think he'll find a better NA team in no time, now that he (probably) lives there
2020-01-20 08:19
Is Bntet fluent in english?
2020-01-20 08:39
Sufficient i'd say if he's not igl.
2020-01-20 08:48
Was gonna say battle of T2 but it’s an open so that’s obvious. Should be a good LAN event to watch though, lots of talent.
2020-01-20 11:10
+1, I would say Anaheim is the most stack Open tournament
2020-01-20 14:15
Man I hope bntet destroys this event

BnTeT full beast mode! Smooya was popping off too actually, he could be a good addition for the NA scene.
2020-01-20 12:05
NA having some of the best imports RN, they are performing very well, Hope to see more NA teams on the Top 10 at the end of 2020.

If Smooya can get his brain right and have a good run with STeel. (Which is probably exactly where you want him to be, look what Steel did with Wardell) Well if he can do all that he might get another shot on a real team.

Yeah I think he has the talent but not the composure so he might be able to change with guidance. We'll have to wait and see!

I actually wish Steel himself could play in a higher tier team. Honestly if he hadn't gotten himself banned I could have seen him leading one of those Liquid teams before 2018 or maybe C9 after the major. Either way, way better then the shit he's doing now. He's always the best fragger or one of the best fraggers on his teams and his players generally end up better when they are done playing with him. Almost think now he was a bigger loss then Swag.

Man if Bntet is actually able to turn into a real international star in NA. Playing next to Autimatic. If those two things happen I'm kind of hyped. Sounds crazy because this team looked like garbage without him but I like these kids now. I like the Som guy even he's not a bad player. A little bit frantic but he's got good aim.
