The month of June is leaving Counter-Strike: Global Offensive fans out of breath! In addition to ESL One Belo Horizonte in Brazil, DreamHack Open Summer 2018 is set to take Sweden by storm.
The group classifications are as follows:
The DreamHack Summer Open takes place in Jönköping, Sweden, between June 16 and 17. The competition will distribute $100,000 in prizes and will start with the following clashes:
North is currently having an exciting 2018 season. The side managed to finish at second place at the Bets.net Masters: Season 1. They also managed a respectable third place finish at the StarSeries & i-League CS:GO Season 5. The biggest achievement of the side is lifting the DreamHack Open Tours 2018 title. In their conquest, for the title, the side beat HellRaisers 2-0 in the final.
Before the start of the competition, North was regarded as one of the weakest sides since there were a lot of disputes amongst the players. However, the Danish side got their act together and walked out as champions. It was quite evident from their performance at DreamHack that they are no pushovers. Daniel “mertz” Mertz was rumored to leave the squad after the competition. But his decision to stay with the side has proved fruitful.
One of the most experienced players of the team, Valdemar “valde” Bjørn Vangså, has shown resurgence after a great performance at the StarSeries. Looking at the competition, North are the clear favorites to lift the title. Even though the side lacks some big names, their chemistry will take them a long way in the competition. Their first match happens to be the opener of the competition. They will be looking to start their campaign with guns blazing.
When the side was rising a little more than a month ago, Imperial’s leader, Asger “AcilioN” Larsen, left the formation. Imperial was victorious in the Copenhagen Games 2018, where they beat North and Heroic on their conquest to lift the title. However, AcilioN was removed after failing to qualify for a number of competitions. Now his replacement has arrived, the new in-game leader of Imperial, Kevin “kRYSTAL” Amend.
The German player has been on the roster for some time now, as a substitute. This is a great opportunity for the player to show what he’s got. His main task will be to shine with the trio Nemanja “nexa” Isaković, Rokas “EspiranTo” Milasauskas, and Žygimantas “nukkye” Chmieliauskas.
The side may have beaten North in the past, but back in those days, North had problems of their own. As a reminder, a month ago Imperial was knocked out by HellRaisers at the DreamHack Open Tours 2018, the very HellRaisers team that was defeated by the Danish lions.
Unpredictability will be a major factor for Imperial coming into this game, since this will be their first performance with “kRYSTAL” as their captain. In the past, the German player caused major upsets with his former team, Sprout. Now we will get to find out how he fares against North in a few days’ time.
North 1 – 0 Imperial
North 1.40 – 2.75 Imperial
