NIP defeat Na`Vi to win Dreamhack Malmö
Some tournaments have more surprising results than other. Dreamhack Malmö was definitely one of them with a lot of great matches, and a lot of massive upsets.
Tyloo defeating Luminosity in the group stage for the last spot was one of them, the Chinese team showed amazing work and strategy for their first big tournament in Europe in a long time.
Godsent also made a big entrance by going to the playoffs and pulling out a serious fight against their fellow countrymen in the semis. EnVyUs’s place in the semi final also comes as a surprise for a team that was in a profound slump.
In the end it is NiP who take the title with a 2-0 win against Na`Vi.
As Friberg said, the crowd really was the 6th player here and may have helped the ninjas to this surprise victory.
Freakazoid leaves Cloud9
1 year after having signed under the Cloud9 banner, Ryan ‘Freakazoid’ Abadir announced that he is leaving the roster.
The work he has done in the North American team has not resulted in the titles and results they were looking for.
Freakazoid was also involved in a “serious” case of cyber-bullying regarding Liquid Simple; he had to make a statement and attend a seminar.
LDLC disband 2 teams
After the departure of two players from the LDLC White roster, Dev1l and body, LDLC had no other choice other than to disband their two teams.
The French brand is known to have a deep role in French e-sport and it is likely that we will see them coming back with a new roster very soon. Some rumors in the french forums state that Ex6tenz’s new line-up could come out under the colours of LDLC.
Let’s see what the future has for this team.
