DreamHack Stockholm is one of the most anticipated events of the year. It hosts some of the best teams in the world with a prize pool of $250,000. Sixteen teams are split into four groups, with only the top two team of each group making it to the playoffs. In the group stage, each team will play in a BO1 format while in the playoffs, they will play BO3. We should expect some exciting competition since we will be seeing big names.
Fnatic, FaZe, and mousesports will be looking to overthrow the dominance of Na’Vi. Astralis will also be aiming to surprise the competition with their unpredictable strategies. We might even see NRG causing one or two big upsets on the occasion. DreamHack Masters Stockholm 2018 will be held from August 29 to September 2. Let’s have a look at the opening match of Group B.
Natus Vincere is one of the strongest teams at the moment. The team has won three competitions in a row and they would love to add another trophy. The team has won seven from their last eight competitive games. The only loss was against Team Liquid. The team from Ukraine is expected to top the table, so they should win this encounter against Ghost easily. The man who can bring them this much-needed win is Oleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev.
He has been the MVP of every competition that Na’Vi has won this year. From his last 66 maps, he has managed an impressive KPR of 0.88. So it’s fair to say that he can get a kill in every round he plays. Behind team captain Danylo “Zeus” Teslenko, it should be a phenomenal run for Na’Vi in Stockholm. They should achieve at least a semi-final finish after the conclusion of DreamHack. However, there is one problem for Na’Vi. The team was unable to meet at bootcamp because of problems with their documents. They have prepared for Stockholm from their houses. However, Na’Vi should be confident facing the new team of Ghost Gaming.
The lineup of this team has only played 10 games together so far. From these ten games, the side has won only five. The team never shies away from making changes to their roster. Recently, they dropped Matt “Pollo” Wilson from their lineup. To replace him, they acquired the services of Kevin “kRYSTAL” Amend, who is joining Ghost on loan. kRYSTAL is the most experienced player in the lineup, having been the in-game leader of The Imperial and Penta Sports. kRYSTAL played for The Imperial from June 10 to July 25.
Then he was transferred to the reserve. With his services, the team won the DreamHack Summer 2018. The lineup also took third place in the European qualification at the ZOTAC Cup Masters 2018. It looks like Ghost has made a smart on choice. However, their lack of experience as a team is could cost them big against a tier 1 team like Na’Vi. Ghost will be hoping to get either Inferno or Nuke as the map of this meeting. Since these are two of the most successful maps of this team. Ghost may very well be eliminated in the group stage as NiP will have eyes on the second spot.
Natus Vincere 1 – 0 Ghost Gaming
Natus Vincere 1.12 – 5.33 Ghost Gaming
