GODSENT win DH September over Extra Salt; qualify for EPL Conference

The Brazilian roster fought tooth-and-nail through a best-of-five series that spanned over seven hours.

GODSENT have claimed victory in DreamHack Open September North America, edging past Extra Salt in the best-of-five grand final to earn $35,000 and book a spot at the ESL Pro League Season 15 Conference in November.

The group stage of the tournament was rather clear-cut, with the only notable team to miss out on the playoffs being Bad News Bears, who fell to a comeback from TeamOne in their decider match-up. In Group A, paiN topped the board, while Group B was led by GODSENT, who managed to net the top seed after beating Extra Salt thanks to a stellar showing from João "⁠felps⁠" Vasconcellos.

The playoffs also unfolded as expected, with Johnny "⁠JT⁠" Theodosiou's crew claiming revenge against paiN in the semi-finals after the Brazilian team had prevailed over Extra Salt in the Fragadelphia Fall BLAST Premier Fall Showdown qualifier earlier in the week. GODSENT, meanwhile, narrowly moved past their countrymen from TeamOne in a three-map series to book their own spot in the grand final.

dumau stepped up for GODSENT on the deciding map of the series

The final series of the event kicked off in rather one-sided fashion, with the teams picking up lopsided wins on their opponents map picks to keep the series tied at 1-1. It was on Vertigo where things really began to heat up, with Josh "⁠oSee⁠" Ohm putting up an incredible individual performance (44-20 K-D, 120 ADR) only for his team to narrowly lose the map in overtime.

Inferno saw Extra Salt answer back, but the win was anything but easy as GODSENT made a valiant effort to rally back from a 5-10 deficit, only for Aran "⁠Sonic⁠" Groesbeek and oSee to take the map over the line, 16-14.

The decider, Dust2, seemed set for GODSENT to finally run away with things and close out the series after they converted a 10-5 lead into a 15-7 scoreline in the second half; however, resilience from Extra Salt saw them win eight rounds in a row to force overtime.

There, the back-and-forth battle continued, but it was Eduardo "⁠dumau⁠" Wolkmer's incredible performance that ended up securing GODSENT a victory, with the 17-year-old topping the board (46-25 K-D, 119 ADR, 1.80 rating) and scoring a triple kill in the final round to take home the series win.

Despite losing the series, all is not lost for Extra Salt, who still hold a spot at the ESL Pro League Season 15 Conference as a result of winning DreamHack Open June North America earlier in the year. GODSENT now join the list of teams attending the event, from which three teams will be able to earn a spot in ESL Pro League Season 15.

actually HUNDEN was the coach that most abused this exploit intencionally and got the biggest punishment, he deserved it. And Heroic should be banned too, as a matter of fact the entire org is shit More than half of the brazilian coaches does not even stay on their computer, they always standup behind their players even on online matches (guerri and apoka are good examples) because that's how it used to be on CS 1.6 LAN tournaments.

I don't understand why GODSENT doesn't play in SA Regional RMR they only need to beat MIBR
2021-09-27 07:15
3 replies
SA RMR is very easy for Godsent, they prefer to compete in NA RMR for two reasons, because the lineup has better training while playing and because they have experience playing against bigger teams like Liquid, Furia, and the second reason is that NA gives 5 spots for the Major, the SA only 1... And one more reason is that they don't want to be seen as SA farmers

It's for a lot of reasons, specially that you can play other tournaments while being in NA (even more in EU if that was the case, but they did choose NA)

for oSee to go to Liquid they would need a proper IGL, so they kick fallen and let stewie go back to igl (which wasn't working), or they have to kick someone else and let fallen rifle both situations are kinda of weird (even though fallen can rifle well)

GODSENT really looked great in this tournament, honestly I feel like this project is finally starting to work really well, I feel like the chance of making it to Pro League are absolutely there and honestly this lineup have a potential for like TOP 20 or something, those young guns are looking good, TACO and felps are doing their job, really looking forward to seeing more from them. It was a great match, Extra Salt played really well, and with what they've shown I think they will win the MDL and still make EPL conference, overall the level of this match was actually higher than I expected, it was great to watch.

This looked like a legit top 20 match. No joke. Aim-wise, it doesn’t have anything different from tier 2 EU matches. The only thing who separates them from real tier 1 are practice against high level teams and more advanced strats.

Individually honestly some of those players can probably reach Tier-1 at one point, the skill is there. Isn't GODSENT mainly playing in EU also? I saw them playing in some EU tournaments.

They were bootcamping on Europe a while ago, but they’re NA based. If they keep grinding in those MDL events and plus some “tier 1” NA events it’s EZ money for them. But the downside is that they will never be able to evolve, just like Extra Salt.
