April 24, 2016

The second installment of the Dreamhack Summer qualifier series started very smoothly for the semi-finalists, Qualifier #1 runner-ups PC Master Race, Publiclir, LEGO, and SUAVE -gaming. While PC Master Race took a bye due to only 7 teams being seeded out of 8 slots, their fellow semi-finalists comfortably spanked their opponents in 2 maps in their series.

Those eliminated in the quarter-finals were dd + 5 abs, Team Infamous, and Comfortably Spanked, formerly known as Team Infused. The least comfortable game was Publiclir’s meeting on Gullywash against fellow Premiership team dd + 5 abs, who they also faced in the ETF2L Season 23 Playoffs. After losing 1 - 6 on Sunshine just prior to Gullywash, dd + 5 abs were able to tie the game up at 2 - 2 at the end of regulation time, but ultimately lost out in the golden cap round.

In the semi-final match between active Premiership team LEGO and formerly active Premiership team SUAVE, the teams went the distance on Granary Pro, tieing at 2 - 2 and forcing a golden cap. Despite SUAVE’s pre-tournament inactivity, their experience shined through, helping them take the map in overtime. Following Granary Pro was Gullywash. LEGO kept on fighting but could not deliver, allowing SUAVE to take the map and series with 6 rounds to 3.

On the other side of the bracket, PC Master Race and Publiclir traded one map apiece and started on the series’ tiebreaker map before LEGO and SUAVE finished their first map. After a 4 - 1 win on Badlands for PC Master Race, Publiclir swung the momentum in their favor, closing out the series with a 4 - 0 win on Snakewater and a closer 5 - 2 win on Process to earn themselves a spot in the grand finals.

SUAVE and Publiclir’s matchup started strong with a close 5 - 3 matchup on Snakewater in SUAVE’s favor. In the following map on Badlands, SUAVE really came out to play. SUAVE took the map, series, and tournament with a strong 5 - 0 over Publiclir, featuring a solo cap by their medic Mirelin.

The results for this qualifier are:

  • 1st: SUAVE
  • 2nd: Publiclir
  • 3rd - 4th: PC Master Race, LEGO
  • 5th - 7th: dd + 5 abs, Team Infamous, Comfortably Spanked

With the first 2 DreamHack Summer qualifier tournaments in the books, there are still 2 qualifier tournaments left. Both tournaments have €1,000 and an invite to DreamHack Summer awaiting each tournament’s winning teams.

I really hope the teams that win these qualifiers actually attend DHS. Nothing worse than a team assembling just for the qualifiers and easy money whilst the game and serious teams get hurt in the end.

even though i agree with you, teams still should have to earn their spot and shouldnt just be given the money per default because "nobody better" was around

You're right smzi, but you're not just a random team beating a wannabe prem team. SUAVE is a 3-times Prem winner team full of talent and experience that is, unfortunately, mostly retired. So... yeah IF none of SUAVE can't go to DHS (condition that has already been denied by Mike and Mirelin) I would prefer a less talented team winning these qualifies rather than a not-anymore-dedicated team that is coming back just for a 1 day tournament aimed specifically to help teams reach one of the few lans this games has.

With that being said I'm really pumped to see the composition of Mirelin&Mike's DHS team!

EDIT: Oh and on a side note: If you want to have new capable opposing team, you should help the already existing ones.
Kaidus has proved that one experienced player is capable of turning 5 debuting promising ones into top tier players.
Nowadays these kind of promising players are not disappeared at all, they are just trying to learn themselves and that obviously take a lot of more time.
I would love to see one of you retired gamers support a team of your choice and see if they can do any kind of improvement. It shouldn't take as much time as play a whole season and it can gives some kind of fulfilment imho.

There are still 2 more cups to go, so teams that deserve it will get their spot/money for DHS

Suave attending DHS will depend on the prizepool for the lan (costs/returns should be somewhat balanced) and on the availability of certain players, because none of us is interested to go with a mediocre team and battle it out for 2nd or 3rd place

Kaidus did a good job but calling carry players like starkie a debuty is a bold move ;)

To answer your final note i do not think that any of us is interested in creating a team from scratch cuz that takes to much effort and time that (speaking for myself) i am not willing to put into this game anymore. I am trying to help out existing teams atm for example talking to AMS about roster issues etc but thats pretty much it.

We all had a lot of fun playing the cup yesterday and it might have ignited a spark for a couple of players.

Let's hope in a big enough prizepool then!
Also: I wasn't suggesting to make a new team from scratch as I'm aware many of you (Mirelin, Mike and you at least) had to leave the scene because of irl stuff/lack of motivation to put a lot of time into this game. What I meant is what you said you're doing: help out existing keen-to-get-better and full of energy teams to improve, and for that I thank you, cause if we'll see some kind of improvement and a better show on the top level (by Publiclir at least) I'll know you were part of it.
I just wish more could do the same as you're doing, cause it's amazing!

You got €1000 so you could fund your travels so DHS, basically a free vacation. You are guaranteed the 4th place prize money at DHS so even if you come dead last (unlikely regardless of the roster), you would still probably not be that far behind, regardless of the roster you put up (assuming you aren't missing too many people).

If you don't go, nobody might be able to take your place at DHS without the funding to go. You say that teams don't deserve money if they don't win, but the money isn't actually profit. It all goes to travel support, and even then people still have to pay out of their own pockets to go to LAN and compete. It puts an unreasonable pressure on the team that gets invited in your place to pay out of their own pockets because they have no funding.

Now that team won't be us because we will be absolutely wrecking LEGO in the last qualifier.

you cant really blame suave for this, theyre just acting in their best interests
it was up to the admins to stop this from happening. sideshow said (when the cups were announced) that preventing this would take too much effort so he didnt mind a team like suave winning
