DreamHack Masters Malmo 2017

At the moment of these news DreamHack Masters Malmo is at the quarter finals stage. And North and Immortals are battling it out for a place in the semis. But there's more to say about this tournament than this matchup! It started with 16 top tier teams in CS GO fighting for the main prize pool of 100.000 US$. Gambit the majorPGL Krakow winners are in it to win it,but G2, SK, Astralis, FaZe amongs others had something to say. Unfortunately for some of the big ones they came short in the group stage, such were the cases of FaZe, Fnatic, EnVyUs and VP. Topping the groups with 2 - 0's were NiP, G2, Astralis and North while giants like SK or NaVi had to fight it out for a space in the quarter finals.

These quarter finals are no short of emotions and excitement, with severeal match ups like NaVi x NiP where the CIS team gets the first map (Train) on clear a 16-6 victory but the swedes had the resilience to fight back winning the next maps especially a nailbiting second map (Nuke) which they won 22-20 on an extreme overtime. Mirage was locked down early and NiP secures the semis with a result of 16-8.

Gambit flexed their muscles by setting aside an uninspired Astralis team with a 2-0 win to scure the semis. Their form seems to be fantastic these past events while they stride in the higher circles of CS GO.

SK had a hard time against G2 with the french team taking the semis place in a well fought matchup where SK seemed to fall short and not being in tune in the last months. Even though SK won the first map (Cobblestone), G2 goes into overtime in the second map to clinch it 19-17 in Inferno and the brazilians just lost composure at the end with G2 winning Mirage with a conclusive 16-11 score.

More to come later tomorrow for a final update! Stay tuned!

Leave the Salt behind!!

It's a trend, it's a meme, it's new wave. The salt is real!

For those who do not know that the "salt" is let me help you! It's a mixture of complaining excessively about RNG (random number generator inside the games), or just being toxic (obnoxious behaviour vocally, on the chat or inside the game in general), throwing a game just because you don't like your teammates, bullying other online (calling others noobs). All of this online behaviour seems to be a daily routine now wherever and whichever site you visit or game you play. I have seen countless reveiws from several games such as CS:GO or DOTA2, League of Legends and others stating that the game became unplayable because of such bahaviour.

Unfortunately the problem runs deeper than that. It starts in your own home, it starts with yourself. Take a moment to think about it, how many times have you played an online game and just felt that your opponent is inferior and you feel like you are wasting your time. Maybe you think it's somebody's fault that you are wasting time and maybe you don't realize that on the other end there is actually someone who is not as skilled as you and would like to improve! This same thing goes for teammates aswell. And you start to feel angry or disappointed and you start to let your rage pour out into the chat or through the voice comms making everybody feeling unconfortable. Maybe you wonder why you don't have fun anymore when you play, or some of your mates now refuse to play with you.

Of course being at the confort of your own home allows you to say whatever you want because you will not face any immediate consequences, because let's face it, most probably you would not insult somebody in the middle of the street without expecting some form of retaliation! Doesn't that make you kind of a coward?

Well fortunately games have mute buttons, and you don't have to interact with someone or play a certain game if you dont want to. That's why we created this community, because we don't like or tolerate that behaviour... sure everybody can have a bad day but just simply DON'T BE A DOUCHE OR BECOME ONE!
