The first qualifier for DreamHack Summer has concluded with Perilous Gaming earning a spot and a €1000 prize.
The Quarter-Finals were played on Gullywash and Granary Pro with Process as the tiebreaker map. Perilous Gaming, LEGO, and The Jabronies moved on to the semi-finals after beating their opponents in 2 maps, which meant it was the end of the line for Semen Demon Loli Squad, Top5_Rocket, and Publicir, respectively. PC Master Race, however, took their set against dd + 5 abs to Process before advancing to the next round.
The Semi-Finals were much more eventful with Perilous Gaming taking on their Premiership brethren LEGO, while the mixed team of ESEA-Invite players on The Jabronies faced PC Master Race. The teams met on Process, Snakewater, and Badlands if needed. Perilous Gaming took their series with ease, going 2-0 over LEGO. On the flip-side, PC Master Race and The Jabronies took their set all the way to Badlands. PC Master Race fell quickly to a 1-5 deficit, but managed to fight their way to a 5-5 golden cap. The Jabronies fell milliseconds short of capturing their opponents’ last point, but PC Master Race went coast-to-coast to capture The Jabronies’ last point and end with a well-deserved 6-5 victory.
With little time to prepare, PC Master Race found themselves in the Grand Finals against Perilous Gaming, where Badlands, Granary Pro, and, if necessary, Product were to be played. In an excitingly close matchup, Perilous Gaming claimed victory with a 3-2 scoreline on Badlands and 3-1 on Granary Pro.
Perilous Gaming's victory earned them €1000 and an invitation to Dreamhack Summer 2016.
