The Dreamhack open Winter is one of the most prestigious and staple events in the CS: GO Calendar year. Over the years, we have seen the Dreamhack Winter be a CS: GO major for more one time. There are very few tournaments who can claim to such fame and opportunities as Dreamhack Winter.

The current edition of Dreamhack Winter will enable many Tier, two teams, to come together in an attempt to win the trophy. Winning a Dreamhack Winter tournament is not only about the prize pool but also the dignity and the prestige that comes along with it. There are a total of eight teams attending the tournament and we will see them clashing head-on at the Elmia Convention Center in Jönköping, Sweden. Coming to the roots of Dreamhack, they have always helped the growth and development of local talent in CS: GO.

The prize pool for this event is $100,000. The teams will compete in a GSL styled format and the winner takes home a prize money of $50,000.

  • 7th-8th Place: $2000

LDLC

LDLC Roster:

  • To1nou
  • Alex
  • Logan
  • Amanek
  • Devoduvek

The LDLC roster is plagued with a perennial problem. Their players cannot advance in the French scene mainly cause of the friendship and the closely knit community at the top of the scene. The experienced and veteran French players are usually loathed to change and it is evident in their poor results. However, LDLC has slowly been nurturing a generation of new and upcoming players who can be crucial to putting France back on the world map in Counter-Strike Global Offensive.

Over the past few months, we have seen multiple players from LDLC move onto the better French teams. However, LDLC still remains within reach of the top teams in France. With the likes of Amanek, Devoduvek and To1nou, this team has a lot of firepowers. They have an increased focus on their tactics and have a strategic point of view when it comes to their playstyle. In addition to strategy, LDLC also has a great focus on their firepower and their individual level has never disappointed fans and themselves.

The team remains inconsistent, however, and that comes due to the dip in individual player performances. With time, we expect the players to put together much better performances over the years. However, for now, LDLC remains an excellent team with conditions attached. The team needs to find consistency in its performance which will help boost its standings in the CS: GO Community.

Heroic

Heroic Roster:

  • Moddii
  • E3tag
  • Friberg
  • Mertz
  • Aciilion

Heroic is a Danish team comprising of multiple well-known Danish veterans. The likes of Moddii, Friberg, e3tag, Aciilion and Mertz are a formidable lot when it comes to Counter-Strike. They have all played in the best teams in the world at one point in time. However, as we see them right now, this team has a lot of potentials to make it big in CS: GO.

Heroic is exceptionally good on standard maps like Mirage, Inferno and Nuke. Nuke is a staple for the team. Being a Danish roster it would be surprising if the team did not manage to win Nuke comfortably, especially against LDLC. With Friberg on this roster, the focus of the team remains on their synergy and coordination. He is a person who believes in enhancing team chemistry. He did the same on NIP for many years before his departure. His focus on helping the team and the ultimate goal of the win is unparalleled in CS: GO.

They also have the mastermind in Moddii. He can help the team to develop its persona and strategical approach. With their limited map pool, Heroic rely heavily on Moddii to guide them through their matches. They don’t lack firepower, especially with players like Mertz showing up in a big way. Mertz’ performance has been spectacular recently with some really amazing individual plays by the Danish youngster.

Prediction:

Both the teams have experienced players on their roster. They have been together for quite some time and their synergy is bound to be the X-factor coming into this match. With Heroic, we are seeing a mixture of Danish and Swedish players. These players have a lot of experience under their belt. Their focus on strategy, however, requires Mertz to put up splendid performances.

On the other hand, we have LDLC which is full of young players. These players can put up splendid performances. However, they are very inconsistent which makes it extremely difficult to place your trust on this team.

For now, we recommend a bet on Heroic due to their stability and their focus on strategy. Nuke being a staple map for the team enables them to direct how the veto will proceed further.
