The group stage of the DreamHack Winter Tournament in Sweden was completed, with Gambit, Na 'VI, EnVyUs and Mousesports fighting in the main 50,000-dollar prize.
The first day of the tournament in Joncoping was filled with interesting bo1 matches, and one of the most anticipated encounters of the tournament - Na 'Vi vs. Gambit was certainly the most certain. The tournament was opened by A group, specifically Gambit and Rise Nation. Although the American opponents kept up to some extent, the current Major Champion came out victorious on Mirage 16-10 as the winner. After them, Mousesports and the North's academic team met. As expected, North Academy did not have any chance against the ropes and team, who had 26 assassinations at Cobbleston. Immediately after this match, a clash occurred on Overpass between Na 'Vi and Heroic teams. The Danish team managed to create a minimum advantage of 8-7 at the end of the first half, but the experienced CIS team collected, returned to the match and won the match 16-11. The next match was the match of the B group, meeting on the Cache between the French team EnVyUs and the German BIG, which includes our LEGION. This was the first match of the tournament that went into extra time because both teams were very good on the CT side and most of the rounds they took were on that side. In the extra time, however, EnVyUs was better from 19-17.
