Renegades win DreamHack Masters Spring - Oceania

Renegades have emerged victorious from DreamHack Masters Spring - Oceania after defeating AVANT 3-2 in the grand finals.

Christopher "⁠dexter⁠" Nong and company entered the best-of-five grand final series of DreamHack Masters Spring - Oceania with a one-map advantage due to their undefeated run through the upper bracket, but a victory did not come easy as it took all four maps for Renegades to claim a win over AVANT.

Dust2, AVANT's map pick, was where the series commenced, with the two sides battling back and forth in the opening moments of the match. A one round lead at the break for Renegades did not last last long as a pistol win helped AVANT take three in a row, putting them ahead 10-8 before dexter's side was able to respond. Renegades briefly regained control by winning four rounds in a row, but AVANT was hot on their heels as Mike "⁠ap0c⁠" Aliferis and Chris "⁠ofnu⁠" Hanley combined to help their side over the line, closing out the map 16-13.

dexter and company claimed wins on Mirage and Inferno

One-sided battles on Nuke and Mirage were the next to unfold, with AVANT battering Renegades on the CT side of the former map for a 13-2 lead before eventually taking the win 16-9. With only their default map win in hand and facing a series loss, Renegades came to life on Mirage, with Simon "⁠Sico⁠" Williams and Liam "⁠malta⁠" Schembri taking the helm in a 16-10 victory to force an Inferno decider.

The final map seemed set to be a brawl as the teams grappled for control, AVANT starting and ending the first half strong but Renegades putting up a spree in the middle to narrowly lead 8-7 heading into the side swap. The situation took a grim turn for AVANT once Renegades were heading up the CT side however, with Joshua "⁠INS⁠" Potter and malta dominating to help their team quickly attain match point at 15-8. Three in a row allowed AVANT to briefly stall their execution, but a comeback was not to be as Renegades closed out the map 16-11 to take the series.

2020-06-07 11:24
Either other AU teams have gotten better or RNG has been slacking, the games have been way too close lately. GG anyways, glad to see dexter going ham as always

Renegades definitely aren't at their best atm without getting to verse tier 1 teams. However AVANT & ORDER are good teams that could break top 50 if they got to play in tier 3 tournaments like dreamhack opens.
2020-06-07 14:53
good luck for them
2020-06-07 11:57
Really low level of a match. I think Renegades needs more firepower and overall they are playing really bad., AVANT actually shows insane potential, I don't know why did they lose that game.

if RNG didn't have a 1 map default, avant would have probably won. I agree that avant have good potential

There has to be a benefit to going through via upper bracket otherwise teams would throw matches to have an easier path there. Same with FGC, from loser bracket they have to win 2 sets instead of 1 to win.

they can have veto advantage (choose whether they want to be team A or B) but a map advantage is too much throwing matches wouldn't be different from the way it is because they would have only one chance to win the tournament - lose one match and you are out
