GODSENT stun Astralis in DreamHack Masters Winter

The No. 4-ranked team in the world will take on Liquid in a surprising early fight for survival.

GODSENT delivered on Monday the first major upset of DreamHack Masters Winter with a 2-1 victory over Astralis, who will face Liquid on Wednesday in an elimination match. The international team will move on to the second round in Group B's double-elimination bracket, in which they will get a shot at revenge against mousesports after their recent thrashing at the hands of Finn "⁠karrigan⁠" Andersen's side in the BLAST Premier Fall Showdown.

GODSENT came back from a 5-10 deficit on Train to draw first blood in the series before Astralis responded in emphatic fashion with a beating on Dust2. The first half of Nuke ended with only one round separating the two teams, but then the Danes crumbled defensively, picking up just three rounds as they recorded their fifth loss on this map in the last six games.

GODSENT will face mousesports in a rematch of the recent BLAST Showdown encounter

And Luka "⁠emi⁠" Vuković, who is playing his second tournament for GODSENT on trial, spoke of his delight at finally seeing results and performances after the disappointing debut that the team had under his command last week.

"Since I joined the team I've been breathing and playing CS 24/7 just to make this team work," said emi, who had 1.20+ ratings in GODSENT's map victories. "In practice we played pretty well against everyone, then the match against mousesports came and I was really nervous. I couldn't sleep the night before the match because I hadn't played officials in like six months and I had stopped being the in-game leader when Snappi joined c0ntact. I was the lurker, so I wasn't sure how it was going to pan out.

"In this match, you could see our potential and how we play when we play without fear, when we help each other and when we communicate well."

For the first time since 3 years i have a bad feeling that Astralis are not going to comeback and not going to be the dominant team we all know! I think the end is closer *ASTRALIS the best and most dominant team in CS scene* It was a pleasure watching you guys, every good thing unfortunately has an end.

+1 time for NAVI and EG to be the 2 most dominate teams like TL and Astralis in 2019

Congratulations to Godsent, I'm so happy that emi prove himself to the rest of the world how hard working guy he is, I think that this team only need mental stability and I hope that emi can bring this because jf you put styko and zehn in good fresh environment they can be very deadly and in this situation farlig and maden will not have pressure on shoulders because they are young, this team have potential, firepower is not problem right now, only metal stability and positive energy , work on this guys
2020-12-01 04:31
