Extra Salt go undefeated to qualify for DreamHack Masters Spring

Josh "⁠oSee⁠" Ohm led his team to success in the closed qualifier, averaging a 1.32 rating over eight maps.

Extra Salt have booked a ticket to DreamHack Masters Spring after topping the North American closed qualifier, remaining undefeated in the upper bracket and securing wins over every other participating team en route to securing their spot.

Johnny "⁠JT⁠" Theodosiou and company kicked off their bracket run with a 2-1 win over Triumph, maintaining momentum into their second match-up as they scored a pair of 16-12 victories on Train and Inferno over Bad News Bears to advance to the grand final.

There, High Coast lay in wait after fighting their way through the lower bracket with former Extra Salt member Ian "⁠motm⁠" Hardy in place of Jonathan "⁠djay⁠" Dallal, setting up a revenge match-up for the 21-year-old rifler against his former squad.

oSee continues to post stellar numbers for Extra Salt

Extra Salt were initially put on the back foot in the deciding series as Rodrigo "⁠RCF⁠" Figueiredo and Josh "⁠PwnAlone⁠" Pigue led their side to success on Inferno, taking the map 16-8. However, oSee immediately stepped up to bat on Extra Salt's pick of Train, posting a 1.91 rating and 30-12 K-D to help his team even the series score.

On the Overpass decider, oSee continued to pick apart High Coast's attempts to enter bombsites, with the rest of Extra Salt joining the fray as they pulled ahead 12-3 at the break. High Coast remained resilient in the second half, pushing up to nine rounds, but were unable to truly get a comeback effort going as oSee's side remained firmly in control, wasting little time before closing out the map.

DreamHack Masters Spring, which is set to run from April 29 - May 9, will offer the former Cloud9 core their first taste of international competition since they took part in Flashpoint 1 over a year prior. The team list for the $250,000 event currently looks as follows:

It's a gamble though. It's hard to say which org will leave first. I wouldn't be surprised if C9 left CS:GO tomorrow.

That’s true, although I think Cloud9 will stay in cs at least for another 6 months since they invested so much

He had the choice to stay on C9 so I think he will stay with this team for atleast another half a year because he likes playing with them (even if he is screwing his career)

He was very smart actually to not jump into the joke that is the nowadays c9. He deserves a way more stable team.
2021-03-08 23:41
Thing is, what team would you choose? EG might have a spot available if they drop cerq but otherwise I can't really see a team outside of c9 (lol) that doesn't already have a pretty good awper, or is willing to take a risk on a player who isn't proven on LAN nor t1. G2 is the only other team that comes to mind but I feel as if there are other more "local" talents that can fit their needs (like maka or even oskar) I agree with you though: I can only hope that he doesn't become the next wardell

GG, congratulations to Extra Salt. Osee better than his teammates though.
2021-03-08 06:56
Deserved, happy to see them do well. They could maybe do well at the main event also if they keep getting better. This is great for the NA scene to have a team qualify for a big EU event like this.

Idk., their firepower is really impressive, but I see a lack of structure compared to EU teams, so it could be the case.
