DreamHack Open checks out on Sunday

It's the last DreamHack Open before it becomes ESL Challengers, and it's been a wild ride. While it's something of a celebration of the last six years of Counter-Strike, it's not exactly VeryGames vs FNATIC.

Well, FNATIC are there... they're just different.

Built different, that is. The Englishmen with some Swedes went (meat)balls out into Spirit and smashed 'em.

Though in fairness, beating Spirit isn't much to shout about right now. SomeDieYoung, some die every round without killing anyone; as Spirit got 16-0'd by a new-look forZe, sdy managed exactly 0 kills. 0.11 rating. Does that even count as showing up?

That move to remove mir and chopper isn't working out, it seems. Wonder if they might make more changes?

FNATIC on the other hand doesn't look like the team that didn't even make it to the Major. We were wondering if this could be the time where it clicks for smooya, and based on him dropping 42 kills in two maps against ENCE, it might actually be.

FNATIC are now in the semifinal of DreamHack Open November, and we don't want to hype them up, but what if....

MOUZ are a bit all over the shop with chrisJ, once more, re-entering and leaving the team and the team generally taking things easy. It has the feel of a team who might just be splitting up soon, often characterised by losing to MAD Lions.

Well, at least BIG are doing their normal thing; slapping bad teams around. Good to see some normalcy in a non-normal CSGO landscape.
