Serpents qualifies for DreamHack Summer

The fourth qualifier for DreamHack Summer has concluded with Serpents earning a spot at DreamHack Summer 2016 and €1,000.

The fourth and final online qualifier playoffs brought a handful of surprises. Happy Farmers, semi-finalists of the third DreamHack Summer Qualifier playoffs, went out early in the quarter-finals with a 1-2 defeat to Serpents. Similarly, semi-finalists of the first qualifier PC Master Race were knocked out in the first round to dd + 5 abs, who have been knocked out in the quarter-finals of all three preceding qualifiers.

On the other hand, Publiclir beat their opponents Comfortably Spanked to get out of the quarter-finals, while LEGO easily beat their opponents from Stevie Wonder’s Aim School.

dd + 5 abs run came to a short end as Serpents dispatched them in 2 maps to advance to the Grand Final. Similarly, Publiclir fell to the hands of fellow premiership team LEGO, who have broken their own streak of 3 consecutive qualifier semi-final finishes and made their first grand finalist appearance in a qualifier.

In the grand finals, Serpents took the first map, Product, in a dominant fashion with a 3-1 scoreline. The second map, Snakewater, was much closer. After a one-sided initial mid-fight, LEGO managed an incredibly resilient defense on their last for ten minutes to force the round restart at 0-0. They quickly went down after this however, and with a 2-1 score in favor of Serpents as the clock ticked down, all the Russian team had to do was hold the line in order to prevent the game from going to a golden cap. Serpents pulled through despite being rocked all the way back to their last point with seconds remaining, and took the series over LEGO in two maps, securing themselves €1,000 and a reserved spot at DreamHack Summer 2016.

The final results for the fourth qualifier are:

  • 1st: Serpents
  • 2nd: LEGO
  • 3rd-4th: dd + 5 abs, Publiclir
  • 5th-8th: happy farmers, PC Master Race, Stevie Wonder’s Aim School, Comfortably Spanked

The winners of the DreamHack Summer Online Qualifiers with reserved slots at the event are:

  • Perilous Gaming
  • SUAVE
  • nameLess
  • Serpents

This tournament will be particular, there will be casters upper, lower and grand finals and after that the winners will cast a match that has a 1000€ prize and many old teams will come play and disappear asap.

Obviously it would be a lot better if Serpents and Suave turned up but it wont be the end of the world if they don't, I'm guessing Lego, Publiclir and possibly some other teams would be willing to go in their place.

This was "just" an invitational tournament as far as i understood.
That means that the winner get an invitation+1000€ to potentially go to DHS.
This doesn't mean that if the invitation is not "accepted" there can't be any other team. Those who decide to partecipate to the tournament (and are accepted) just won't have those money to help their wallets to go to the LAN.

Shadowburn said to me earlier that they are discussing the visa situation with the desire to attend. Seems unlikely to me but could happen.

It's kinda sad how the bigger TF2 gets, the more shady the involvement of money gets. This is what, second time a team signs up for qualifiers, only to win money and not go? Shouldn't it be a requirement to actually show intentions of going to the fucking event beyond "eh maybe lol"?

This is basically a 'fuck you' to TF2 getting more of a presence at Dreamhack in favor of someone winning money. N e a t.

Yeah some people may think it's shitty by them, but at the end of the day if the current prem teams are getting beaten by a bunch of inactive, albeit very good, players then they don't really deserve the money. It's nice having all these games to cast/watch but if the desire was that the top active teams attend the LAN without the chance of people choking 4 tournaments in a row (Publiclir), the money should have just been given to the teams. Then have showmatches or something to promote the tournament.

Maybe those players who can commit, from both suave and serpents, should form a team and attend dhs with the money they earned.

there is no nice way of saying "these people who won a tournament are lazy and therefore awful" without the underlying text being "everyone who currently plays are significantly worse than these players who aren't really full-time in the slightest"

So to clarify the SUAVE situation both kiler and I planned to make it happen but it wont happen due to the following reasons.

- war doesnt want to go
- mike is tied with perilous ( even tho he said he would ditch them if Suave is happening)
- Rising does not get time off work

I said all this to sideshow roughly a week ago and I hope you guys understand that we are not willing to spend money to go to lan with a half-assed mixteam that will just get bodied by nameLess and Perilous.

While i also understand that it looks shitty how Suave now stole a spot by casually bringing back a top tier prem team I have to ask you to look at yesterdays cup. A russian mixteam full with inactive/washed up players (also not even the Top 6 russian players eg. forsaken, death/gdk) just beat the left over prem teams once again.

I am sure both Lego and Publiclir will get the spot from Sideshow but i also could not agree more with kermit (post 20).
The money should have just been given to those teams instead of making them fight for it since the chance of choking in an online qualifier is always there.

Then give the money to lego, publiclir etc so they can go to lan? Im sure those teams will have a fundraiser for them to get players there. Or if serpents need more money due to flights from russia being more. You can back up your words with actions here.

Why should they? The prize was the money and a spot at dreamhack. Its pointless to restrict the money only for going to dreamhack as it will be an arse and pointless to track what the money is being spent on.

Regardless of how teams performed and teams not being able to attend then its pretty simple. Give the spot to a team that can and if they need money to travel well they should of come first in one of the 4 tournaments.
