DreamHack Montreal 2018

Canada will be hosting an esports event, DreamHack Montreal 2018, featuring Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. The match will run from 7th until 9th September at the Olympic Stadium. Eight CSGO teams have received direct invitations to compete for their chance to win a share from the prize pool of $100K.

Some of the top teams are participating in the ongoing FACEIT CSGO Major in London. Due to this, other teams that did not qualify will be taking part, and so the organizers decided that qualifying matches will not take place at the Counter-Strike event.

Esports fans who followed last year’s DreamHack Montreal 2017 know of the controversy around the tournament. Canada is famous for their traffic jams, but Immortals did not know of this fact and turned up late for the Grand Finals. The CSGO team was forced to forfeit the first map and were given an extra 15 minutes to prepare for the final that nearly risked them losing the entire match to North. Immortals were in time for the second round which was a decider. It was an easy win for the Danish Northern squad scoring 16-9 over IMT, taking the Final 2-0 to claim their prize of $50K.

This year’s DreamHack Montreal will not see Immortals and North participating. There will be two American units, EUnited and Luminosity, while the remaining six European teams are AGO Esports, Ence, Heroic, The Imperial, Team Kinguin, and Red Reserve. These units may not rank in the top CSGO rankings in the world, but they have the chance to win the DreamHack 2018 title.

Olympic stadium

The DreamHack 2018 CSGO tournament held at the Olympic Stadium in Montreal, Canada will have two teams of four each starting with the Group Stages in best-of-1 and best-of-3. At this point, the top four squads in both groups A and B will advance to the playoffs while the remaining four will be out of the game. The Playoffs will be in a single elimination bracket with the matches played in a best-of-3 that will determine the best two units to reach the Grand Finals.

Which team do you think will be the favorites at DreamHack Montreal?

Red reserve CSGO team

Red Reserve

Red Reserve acquired the former Godsent CSGO team in June 2018. Since then they have participated in the qualifying matches of the StarSeries & i-League Season 6, DreamHack Masters Stockholm, ESL One Belo Horizonte 2018 and many more. Their gaming experience at several prestigious competitions in the past have raised their gaming levels with unpredictability and surprise.

AGO Esports

The Polish hawks have recently signed on pro player, Grzegorz ‘SZPERO’ Dziamałek to their Counter-Strike roster in August. Over the past few months, AGO Esports have participated in several Majors such as DreamHack Valencia, DH Open Summer and Open Tours finishing between 5-6th place. They have also won taken the titles of Minor matches such as the OGA Counter PIT, Games Clash masters and PLE S3 Group Stage among many others. With competitive experience and participation in Major events, AGO Esports could level up their game to reach their winning goals.

Luminosity

Forming the current Luminosity CSGO roster, The Brazilian team players HEN1 and LUCAS1 had the controversial competitive experience last year competing for Immortals. Together with steel, yeL and NEKIZ, Luminosity Gaming have managed to earn their spot at DreamHack Montreal and will not let the Canadian traffic get to them. They have recently qualified for the main event, IEM Chicago and managed to reach the Grand Finals of DreamHack Valencia 2018 finishing in second place.

Ence CSGO 2018

Ence Esports

The Finnish team, Ence Esports have made quite an impression at the Europe Minor Championship in London placing third, losing to Ninjas in Pyjamas. This team does not have that much experience in Major or Premier events since they take part in a lot of qualifiers and minor tournaments. Ence has a few tricks up their sleeves when the pressure is on, entertaining the esports audience with their impeccable skills.
