Dreamhack Marseille — Day one complete; Four sent home

1
Finally top tier Counter-Strike has found its way back onto our screens as DreamHack Masters Marseille 2018 Day One comes to an end, with four teams already being eliminated from the tournament.
The day started out with each team playing a best of one in their respective group, with the victors not playing again until tomorrow and the losers having to play an elimination match to continue their journey. As such at the end of day one we see eight teams on one game played and one victory. Faze Clan secured their win in crushing fashion against Team Envyus 16-1 whilst Mousesports and Ninjas in Pyjamas took their narrow victories 16-13 against Valiance and SK Gaming respectively. There was to be one more close game with Cloud9 taking down G2 Esports 22-20 whilst the likes of Fnatic, Natus Vincere , Team Liquid and Astralis returned to the far more convincing victories with 16-4, 16-4, 16-7 and 16-2. These victories knocked Tyloo, Renegades, Gambit Esports and Space Soldiers down to join the other losing teams in the elimination matches.

The first was the battle of the French teams on home soil, in which really any team could come out on top. It was to be Team Envy as Cédric "RpK" Guipouy and Vincent "Happy" Schopenhauer in particular showed up to a match in which only one G2 Esports player could find a positive scoreline and even then only by one kill. As such Team Envy took a straightforward 16-7 victory on Cache to send home G2 Esports on the first day.


Next up was a widely expected result as SK Gaming sent down Valiance 16-4 on Mirage as Ricardo "boltz" Prass and Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo were the standout players for the Brazilian team. Meanwhile Nemanja "huNter" Kovač was the closest on his team to having a meaningful impact being the only player in double figures for the surprise qualifiers.


Another expected result, albeit in less devastating fashion, came next as Renegades sent Tyloo packing 16-12 on Mirage. Hansel "BnTeT" Ferdinand had the best individual performance on the server with an ADR of 109.4 coming level on rating with Aaron "AZR" Ward but it wasn't enough to stop the more experienced team taking the victory.


Finally Gambit sent home Space Soldiers, who were the dark horse with the most potential for many coming in to the event after their WESG performance coming second to Fnatic. They simply couldn't get it going at this event however as after an embarrassing 16-2 defeat to Danes Astralis, they crashed out on day one 16-7 to Gambit. They certainly made it more respectable than it was going to be after the first half of 14-1 on Train, but it left them with simply too much to do on their Counter-Terrorist side as Mihail "Dosia" Stolyarov and Abay "HObbit" Khassenov ran riot throughout the match.
