Gen.G win DreamHack Open Anaheim without dropping a map; book ticket to DreamHack Masters Jönköping

Gen.G beat FURIA 2-0 in the DreamHack Open Anaheim final to bag the $50,000 grand prize and a spot at DreamHack Masters Jönköping.

Gen.G exceeded all expectations at their first LAN, DreamHack Open Anaheim, where they swept their group with victories over ENCE and Complexity. The North American side then moved on to the playoffs and once again swept opposition beating North and FURIA in two-map series to be crowned champions and secure a spot at the upcoming DreamHack Masters Jönköping.

Gen.G beat FURIA in two maps to steal the show in Anaheim

The final kicked off on Nuke, FURIA’s pick, but it was Gen.G who won the first pistol round on the CT side to set the pace with doubles by Kenneth "koosta" Suen and Sam "s0m" Oh. A successful A hit put FURIA on the board after which the Brazilians were quick to tie it up, 3-3. The North American squad took control of the half with clutches by s0m and Timothy "autimatic" Ta giving up just two more rounds for a 10-5 partial score.

Gen.G won a 4vs2 afterplant situation in the second pistol and went on to increase their lead 13-5 before FURIA could reply to stay alive in their map pick. Both teams traded rounds but a 1vs4 clutch by koosta that put his team on match point proved to be enough as the Brazilians were unable to retaliate as Gen.G won the following round to close out map one, 16-7.

FURIA put up a fight on Inferno but couldn't push it to a decider

Three kills in an aggressive mid play on Inferno by Kaike "KSCERATO" Cerato put FURIA up 1-0, but a plant gave Gen.G enough money to buy the following round and tie it up, 1-1. An early dominating display by s0m put his side up 3-1 before the two teams traded rounds before the North American side then started to snowball with the economic advantage to win the half 10-5 as FURIA could only pepper loose rounds.

FURIA bridged the gap on the attacking side, winning the pistol round and following it up, but they were upset by pistol doubles by s0m in B and koosta on A in the third round of the second half. Yuri "yuurih" Santos then won a 1vs2 to keep his team alive, but a huge three kill round by Hansel "BnTeT" Ferdinand kept Gen.G ahead 12-10 heading into the last stretch of the map.

FURIA started to find openings in the defenses and down 13-15 Vinicius "VINI" Figueiredo was able to win a 1vs2 afterplant on A to secure a thirtieth round and push it to overtime, but Gen.G smashed FURIA 3-0 on the CT side before closing out map and match, 19-15.

Must be sad having a scene where the only way to have half-decent teams is to buy players from other continents
2020-02-24 20:50
oh yes liquid is full of foreigners! and please do the bait where you talk about their ancestors being from other countries. I mean I guess technically all players are African, right??? On a real note, French CS used to have such a huge talent pool with 6 players making top 20 in 2014 and 5 players in top 20 in 2015. Now only zywoo and kennys are top 40. How sad is that? Also EG has 1 non-American player and he’s their second best player. Oh and gen.g has 1 non-American player and he’s not exactly carrying. Oh and there are 18 NA players in top 30 teams, and 9 of them are on top 5 teams. France has 8 players in top 30 teams, and 0 of them are on top 5 teams. Oh also the 2 best French teams collectively have only 7 French players (alex, hunter, nexa not french). The top 2 NA teams have 9 NA players (only cerq not NA). How braindead do you have to be to insult NA scene when you’re scene is at an all time low and doesn’t even compare to NA right now?
2020-02-25 08:24
How braindead do you have to be not to know the difference between "your" and "you're" when it's your native language ? Also US 330m people, France 67 so proportionally we rekt you everywhere, kthxbye lowbob.
2020-02-25 10:35
Imagine commenting on grammar to change the subject. Also population is a fair point though it doesn’t change the reality that the French scene has declined a crazy amount

He didn't. He was an exceptional rifle, then a solid awp. He went back to rifles in c9, but really didn't do well, so he's back on awp now that mixwell is gone. Auti on rifles in prime > on awp. But it shows how good of a player he is, regardless.

It's because they put tim back on awp. I think it was the right choice, despite the fact I think he was better as a rifle before his primary awp role. But also bntet is really good, and clearly s0m is showing his actual potential finally.

Nah, it seems the entire ENCE roster look like they're about to die of depression every time they play. They were a meme before they had their run at Katowice, an event that ended up giving them some credit in the scene. But after kicking Aleksib all that credit was lost and they've now become even more of a meme.

Furia talking trash to compLexity after a super close game, just to get destroyed 2-0 by Gen.G ... Deserved : ) Congrats to Gen.G on the other hand... Winning the whole tournament without dropping a single map. Definitely showing promise for future events.

If Gen. G could sustain this level of playing, they"ll get some tournament wins very soon. Congratz GenG. Well deserved. I hope brazilian teams improve soon to come back to main ranking levels.
