Renegades secure EPL Conference spot with DreamHack Open victory

This lineup is yet to lose a domestic event under the Renegades banner.

Renegades continued their domination of the Oceanic region with a 3-1 victory over LookingForOrg in the grand final of Dreamhack Open Oceania. Having been sent to the lower bracket earlier in the event by LookingForOrg themselves, Joshua "⁠INS⁠" Potter and co. came into this best-of-five grand final with a one map disadvantage. They avenged the earlier defeat with aplomb, sweeping their opponents on Mirage, Dust2 and Nuke.

This adds another title to an already solid list for Renegades' year, having won ESEA Premier and EPIC League Oceania so far in 2021. It also continues their impressive form from 2020, where they won just about everything there was to play in the region.

INS and co. are set for another overseas trip

The maps themselves were closely fought affairs, with LookingForOrg securing at least 12 rounds in all three. Unfortunately their inability to convert opening kills into round wins cost them dearly, posting 50 to Renegades' 36 across the series.
