Grumble grumble grumble...

What's that noise you ask? Oh it's just napz pouting over the results of the DH Masters EU Grand Final. Mousesports took a nice 3-1 beating from Astralis.

An Astralis who swapped out Bubzkji for Xyp9x again, which is interesting when you consider the fact that Xyp9x' rating in the last three months - AKA his return to competitive play - has been a meager 1.02, especially compared to the last twelve months, where he achieves a respectable 1.09.

However, the last two maps were within three rounds of each other, so he's got that going for him, which is nice.

Astralis started off strong on Train, crushing mouz 16 to 5, however, the European mix returned the favour swiftly on map two, Inferno, taking a quick 16-3 win. Then things got interesting.

Map three saw us go to the cold and radioactive hallways of Nuke. Mousesports trailed closely behind the Danes for a long time, but fell short just three rounds in the end, finishing the game at 16-13. With the Bo5 score being at 2-1 in favour of Astralis It was clear mousesports were starting to get desperate, and had to come up with something.

The dazzling heights of Vertigo would be decisive, and a nailbiter, with the game eventually going to overtime. After a short technical break, Astralis rose to great heights and gained what they came for: That one round they needed for the win. Mousesports had fallen to the giant and the game was over. Astralis are your Dreamhack Masters EU Champions.

Hello? Oh- yes, okay- I- I understand. Will do.

Production has just told us that there are indeed two more regions who have declared their winners. Just like the script says, we can now confirm ViCi Gaming have won DH Masters Winter Asia, and Renegades are the winners of the Oceanian region.
