BIG defeat Virtus.pro; North overrun Sprout in DH Leipzig openers

In the first matches at DreamHack Open Leipzig BIG picked up a strong victory over Virtus.pro (Inferno 16-8), while Sprout suffered a one-sided loss to North (Dust2 16-4) on home soil.

A 3-1 lead from Virtus.pro on Inferno as CT was a good start for the side from Kazakhstan, but Ismailcan "XANTARES" Dörtkardeş' double started BIG's strong run as Terrorists. The Germans exploited their opponents' passive defenses and bullied their way to a strong half-time score, finishing 10-5 up after Tizian "tiziaN" Feldbusch's closing knife kill on Dzhami "Jame" Ali.

tabseN showed great form in the opening match in Leipzig

Virtus.pro's star player Jame combined with Dauren "AdreN" Kystaubayev to win a 2v3 in the second-half pistol to bring the score back to 10-8, before BIG' first buy round on the CT side. Alexey "qikert" Golubev and co. opted for executes towards the A site in the next two rounds, but with the help of Johannes "tabseN" Wodarz, BIG managed to thwart their approaches. The German in-game leader continued his form for the rest of the match, finishing with a 1.74 rating in a one-sided, 16-8 victory for BIG.

The other German representative in Leipzig, Sprout, did not have a similar start on their home soil. In North's first official match since Mathias "MSL" Lauridsen's return, the Danes grabbed a 4-0 lead before Sprout's newcomers Paweł "dycha" Dycha and Tomáš "oskar" Šťastný stepped up to bring the score back to 4-3. However, the Terrorist side from North was simply too hard to deal with for Timo "Spiidi" Richter's team as they were picked apart by the Danes and finished the defensive half of Dust2 11-4 down.

Sprout lost the second pistol round as well and couldn't convert a 2v2 in the first buy round as Terrorists (14-4), leaving North with a simple task of closing out the game, which was made even easier with Nicklas "gade" Gade great fragging. The final score was a resounding 16-4.

2020-01-24 14:07
I actually think jame is the problem
2020-01-24 14:09
how? he is the sole reason they are in VP and were top5 ranked at some point.

Jame looks so out of any confidence. I remember half a year ago, he would peek any corner and win the duel. And he barely ever missed. Now he plays the safest positions without any impact and misses quite often. It will be a hard downfall for VP if Jame doesnt come back.
