DreamHack Open Montreal 2018 is over after a weekend’s worth of matches and Team Kinguin has taken first place and the prize money that comes with it.

DreamHack began its annual Montreal event on Friday last week and we saw multiple mid-range CS:GO teams compete for a piece of the $100,000 prize pool. The event ran over the course of three days, ending on Sunday, 9 September. Viewers were treated to 13 individual matches between 8 different teams. Right now, we are going to take a look back and see how the tournament progressed.

Day One of DreamHack Open Montreal

The first day opened with a match between ENCE and eUnited on Mirage, which saw multiple great plays from both teams, such as xseveN’s triple kill while defending the B site and moose’s 3 kills with the M4A4 on Connector. Ultimately, ENCE came out ahead with 16 – 9.

Following that, we saw Imperial get stomped by AGO, losing 3 – 16 on Train, in what would be one of the shortest matches in the tournament. Luckily, users got a much better performance from Team Kinguin and Red Reserve on the same map. After a heated match, Red Reserve just barely managed to pull ahead, winning 16 – 14.

Day Two of DreamHack Open Montreal

The second day of the event featured many more matches than the first and Luminosity and Heroic set the bar high from the very beginning. Going into overtime, the two teams fought hard on Overpass, with Luminosity snatching the victory at 19 – 17.

Despite Red Reserve’s great performance the previous day against Team Kinguin, they were no match for ENCE. The two teams faced off on Mirage and ENCE showed clear dominance, by scoring 16 rounds to RR’s 7.

AGO, on the other hand, had a chance to shine and they certainly did against Luminosity on the all-time classic Dust2. Despite Luminosity failing to win, it still showed that its players are some of the best, highlighted by LUCAS1’s quad-kill with the M4A4.

After the AGO vs Luminosity match, every match was played in the Best-of-three format. Team Kinguin and eUnited were the first to showcase their skills, playing three maps, more specifically, Overpass, Nuke and Cache. The first match was not very eventful, but the second one featured a quad-kill from TaZ using the XM1014 shotgun and Ace killing off four players with the AWP. The third game was where mouz got his chance to shine, pulling off a 1v4 clutch. Ultimately, Team Kinguin got the win and the right to processed further in the tournament.

Next were Imperial and Heroic, playing two games on Mirage and Train. The first game saw Heroic put up a valiant effort, despite losing 16 – 13. However, during the second one, they were totally demolished by Imperial, who scored 16 – 3. Thus, the second day of DreamHack came to a close.

Day Three of DreamHack

Day Three of DreamHack began with a match between Team Kinguin and Red Reserve on Dust2 and Overpass. TK proved themselves to be the better team, yet again, and with no small part to rallen, who pulled off two quad-kills on the first map.

Match number two was between Luminosity and Imperial, which saw the two teams fight it out on Cache and Overpass. The best moment in the match was on the first map when EspiranTo shocked everyone and killed off the entire 5-man team of Luminosity. The match concluded with an Imperial win.

AGO and Team Kinguin were featured in the next match, which was the beginning of the Semi-Finals. Dust2 and Train were the maps of choice and Team Kinguin won both, with 16 – 4 and 16 – 8, respectively.

The other game in the Semi-Finals took place on Mirage, Dust2 and Train and it was between ENCE and Imperial. The game on Mirage featured ENCE being demolished by Imperial in a 16 – 2, however, ENCE did get it together and they managed to win the other two maps with 16 – 14 and 19 – 17.

The Finals match was down to Team Kinguin and ENCE, who met on Nuke and Dust2. The Nuke map was first and the fight for it was quite even, ending 16 – 14 in TK’s favor. The second map, however, was nowhere near as competitive and Team Kinguin won the game 16 – 9 and the first place prize of $50,000.
