It is the European's trophy to lose as they head to Atlanta this weekend!
<p>This weekend we return to a smaller Counter-Strike tournament as part of the Dreamhack series. We have done a bunch of these over the year and returns are usually limited to +/- 5 units given the size of the lan. The 8-team Dreamhack tournies usually feature an interesting mix of some up-and-coming European teams as well as the better teams from non-traditional CSGO regions like Asia, Oceania, and perhaps South America. However the competition this weekend is fielded almost exclusively by European teams, with two North American squads as well.</p><p>Alright so most of the teams you're gonna likely be familiar with; Heroic, Crazy, Virtus Pro, Sprout, Illuminar (which I believe is mostly the ex-x-kom roster?). Then there is a slightly different looking 'Intz', at least different from the major as Kngv has left for MIBR. And finally the two hodge-podge North American rosters; Chaos Esports led by the Canadian mastermind 'Steel', and the other, Triumph, which has some names known to the MDL league primarily and features portions of former Spacestation and Dignitas rosters? I am asking because these types of players play musical chairs with orgs and team names and never make a splash internationally so it's hard to get too vested in them for any length of time.</p><p>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\" data-lang=\"en\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;No more anime team πŸ˜”&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;However we'll have the new &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/ChaosEC?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;@ChaosEC&lt;/a&gt; team compete at &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/hashtag/DHOpen?src=hash&amp;amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;#DHOpen&lt;/a&gt; Atlanta! πŸ”₯&lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/hashtag/DEBUTLAN?src=hash&amp;amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;#DEBUTLAN&lt;/a&gt; &lt;a href=\"https://t.co/2sLqAFqGXh\"&gt;https://t.co/2sLqAFqGXh&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;β€” DreamHack Counter-Strike (@DreamHackCSGO) &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/DreamHackCSGO/status/1193939457591959555?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;11 de novembro de 2019&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt;\n&lt;script async src=\"https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js\" charset=\"utf-8\"&gt;&lt;/script&gt;"}[/]</p><div><h2>Match Bets</h2><ul> <li>Heroic (-5.5) v Triumph @ 1.80 [<a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=155&amp;a=6a145d2b-505f-491b-a70e-2f5f31742828&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Top Rated Sportsbook!">Pinnacle</a>]</li> <li>Crazy (-4.5) v Chaos @ 1.85 [<a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=3e56a0bf-7bdf-4fe1-b9a6-d22c7cc3dd2c&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="A+ Rated Bookmaker!">Betway</a>]</li> <li>Illuminar (ml) v Sprout @ 2.62 [<a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Join Bet365 Today!">Bet365</a>]</li> <li>Illuminar/Sprout (over 26.5) @ 2.13 [<a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=155&amp;a=6a145d2b-505f-491b-a70e-2f5f31742828&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Top Rated Sportsbook!">Pinnacle</a>]</li> <li>Intz (ml) v Virtus Pro @ 2.25 [<a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Join Bet365 Today!">Bet365</a>]</li></ul><p>I found the Sprout v Illuminar line the most interesting. Sprout has taken the head-to-head in the past two series, and Illuminar took the four maps before that in September. Sprout could certainly continue to string them together against the Poles, but there isn't as much separating these two as the line suggests (even if the Germans are in the better form coming to LAN). All elimination matches are best-of-threes – will post what I am on through the weekend!</p><p><a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=162&amp;a=ec641d03-1e6d-4096-9f5f-d2a6939022d0&amp;f=3"><img alt src="https://cmscdn.staticcache.org/assets/image/0005/1349915/Biggest-Ever-Bet-Boost-1280x480-English-UK.jpg" style="width:100%;height:38px" /></a></p></div>
