Chaos crush Triumph in DreamHack Open Summer opener

Chaos won their opening match against Triumph convincingly, 16-6 on Mirage and 16-2 on Nuke, and will face Liquid next.

Chaos showed a dominant performance in their DreamHack Open Summer 2020 North America opening match against Triumph, who recently added Kaleb "⁠moose⁠" Jayne after Michael "⁠Grim⁠" Wince's departure, and will face Liquid in Group A's winners' match on Tuesday.

The series kicked off on Chaos’ map pick, Mirage, and Joshua "⁠steel⁠" Nissan and company got ahead after the T-side pistol round. They then lost against the forecebuy, but charged ahead to a 4-1 lead regardless. Triumph put up two successful defenses to keep it within one, but melted when Chaos heated things up, with Erick "⁠Xeppaa⁠" Bach leading the charge as they ran away with a 10-5 lead at the half.

A triple by steel pushed Chaos to further their lead, 11-5. It was finally on a buy in the fourth round of the half that Triumph could get on the board off the back of a triple by Alan "⁠Shakezullah⁠" Hardeman, but it didn't stop Chaos from imposing their will, 16-6.

steel & co will proceed to the Group A winners’ match

Triumph won the attacking pistol round on Nuke, but were denied a second round, after which Chaos took control on the defending side, putting up 7 rounds uncontested and steamrolling their way to a 13-2 lead at the half. Chaos then converted the second pistol round with a successful defense after planting the bomb on the B site, ending Triumph's wishes of a comeback as they closed it out 16-2.

Chaos is insane. When LAN tournaments comeback, I think they will become a TOP 15 team. I know that it was Triumph's first match with moose, but honestly I think this team looks really bad even on paper and I don't predict them a great future.
