mousesports defeat Cloud9; GODSENT upset Heroic in DreamHack Masters Winter playoffs

mousesports and GODSENT will meet in the semi-final of DreamHack Masters Winer after eliminating their opponents in the first leg of the playoffs.

The second meeting between Özgür "⁠woxic⁠" Eker's Cloud9 and the AWPer's former team mousesports ended with another 2-0 win for Finn "⁠karrigan⁠" Andersen and co. Another team eliminated from the tournament in 5th-8th is Heroic, as the world's second-best team suffered a 2-1 upset to GODSENT.

After making it through the BLAST Showdown, mousesports have made another deep run in DreamHack Masters Winter, while GODSENT have impressed in their second event with Luka "⁠emi⁠" Vuković on trial. The European side took down three Danish teams so far - Astralis, North, and Heroic, and will play a rematch versus mousesports on Saturday for a place in the grand final.

karrigan secured another win over Cloud9

Cloud9 found sporadic success to start the T side of Nuke, but the double AWP of mousesports allowed the Europeans to grab control of the map soon, running away with the lead, 11-4. The pistol and the map seemed in the bag as Ricky "⁠floppy⁠" Kemery found himself in a 1v5 retake, but the American player turned it around for his second 1v5 clutch in two days, and inspired a comeback. Cloud9 got to 12 rounds before mousesports closed Nuke out thanks to a 2v4 by their best performers - Robin "⁠ropz⁠" Kool and David "⁠frozen⁠" Čerňanský.

On Inferno, mousesports started off cleanly, 5-0, before Alex "⁠ALEX⁠" McMeekin's men managed to get going on the defense to finish it just one round behind. The Europeans picked up another pistol and reached the 11 round mark before woxic pulled off two 1v3 clutches to get his team back into the lead (11-10), but that was short-lived. mousesports put up a wall and ended the map 16-12 as karrigan got a knife-kill on his former teammate woxic.

Heroic - GODSENT went all three maps, with the European mixture winning their map pick of Inferno 16-10 after a near-perfect start, 7-1 on the T side. Vertigo was a different story, as René "⁠TeSeS⁠" Madsen pushed Heroic to 10 rounds on the offense with some brilliant play, but emi's team pulled back after the switch. The score was 14-14 when Heroic squeezed out a crucial round, forcing Train.

Playing on the defense, Jesse "⁠zehN⁠" Linjala and Asger "⁠Farlig⁠" Jensen were again on point, continuing their strong form from earlier in the series. GODSENT were 9-2 up when Heroic recovered with a pistol-armor buy, but after winning the second pistol, they failed to convert their second anti-eco. GODSENT grabbed that opportunity and ran away with Train to complete the upset, 16-10.

one can hope. but we're going to get back to losing and making people want roster changes as soon as LAN events come back. it takes Mouz a very long time to adjust to things, took them a few years to get consistent on LAN, then COVID happens, takes almost a year to get back to a decent level online, and then LAN will come back. Calling it now xD

0/8 mouz was practically the best team before COVID hit and that was all LAN. they started playing worse in the online era and were probably the team who got hit the hardest not playing LAN. they are easily top 5 on LAN and can also be online once adjusted to everything, but its not as easy for international teams not being in the same place in comparison to teams like vitality f.e. who are playing together from bootcamp.

I honestly feel like the performance on Inferno is kinda bright spot. They seem to play teams on the opponents map picks pretty well. They just need to figure out how to close out their map picks consistently.
2020-12-04 18:20
Having 1.30 rating across a series is a stomp. 2-0 is a stomp. Winning without any worries the adversary map pick is a stomp. Stomp stomp stomp stomp

Yea but the fact that Cloud9 managed to score 12 rounds across two maps is pretty impressive considering they're a new team and they're fighting against one of the hottest team right now. You can't just call that stomping unless it's a 16-7 or if Cloud9 has been playing with this roster for a year or two.

Congrats to Godsent, all players did well, they deserved this. This new fresh positive energy unleash styko and zehn potential again and put no pressure on farlig and maden shoulders. Emi did great job don't look stats because honestly on maps that he's not comfortable yet he can do - 15 easily :) (just like on vertigo) but on that he have control he's doing good job, give him more time for map that he's not comfortable. This team is good, they just need to work on metal stability and to stay positive. Well done guys

lets be honest He played poorly, he's lucky that no one else was slacking (like they usually do, zehn and styko mostly as of late). I still think it was good pickup, he just need to catch up a bit more...

nice honeymoon period people literally say at least its a 4v5 now and emi has the same bad stats krystal does only difference right now was that farlig hard carried them

mousesports is actually looking good, I'm surprised by them, With small changes they could be maybe even a contender for the biggest tittles. Cloud9 is showing potential, they just need to work hard. GODSENT is showing some potential aswell, with small changes they could be a TOP 20 team. Heroic is showing some potential aswell, with small changes I think they could comeback to being the no.1.
