RAGE win second DH Winter qualifier
RAGE have secured victory in the second DreamHack Winter 2010 online qualifier, defeating Playzone in the process.
RAGE sailed through the single-elimination bracket with only a minor scare against hippopotomus in the semifinal. For what the final goes, RAGE got off to a shaky start with Playzone taking an early 8-0 lead as CT on de_train.
However, a nice one-versus-three situation by Danny "pop" Oldenburg gave RAGE some needed momentum, and finished the half with the scoreboard displaying 10-5.
Switching sides, RAGE now got off to a better start, taking four rounds to begin with. The match then went round for round with RAGE coming out ahead to take the first map at 16-13.
Moving onto de_inferno, RAGE continued their momentum, taking the opening rounds with ease. Playzone on the other hand initiated a counterattack, seeing an ace performed by former Begrip member André "keiz" Carlsson.
Although RAGE were only under by one round after the first half (8-7), the Swedish team equipped their steamroller boots and stomped Playzone the following eight rounds, leaving the final score at 16-7 and 2-0.
With RAGE's performance at the second DH Winter 2010 PlayDH qualifier, they have joined the list of participating teams for DreamHack Winter:
