Over the weekend, DreamHack hosted one of the biggest Counter-Strike: Global Offensive tournaments in Leipzig, Germany. From Jan. 22 – 24, eight of the top CS:GO teams from around the world came out to compete for $100,000 in prize money.
When the eight teams were announced, a couple of fans were disappointed as some of the most popular names in CS:GO were not in attendance, including FNATIC and Team EnVyUs . Even though these teams were not participating in the event, CS:GO fans were still able to witness a lot of exciting matches.
After several intense matches, only two teams remained: Luminosity Gaming and Natus Vincere. Na’Vi was already listed as one of the top three Counter-Strike teams, but it was Luminosity who showed great improvement as they took down FaZe with a 2-0 victory.
Although Luminosity showed everyone what they were capable, it just was not enough. Both teams played their hearts out, but it was Na’Vi who took the match 2-0, earning them $50,000 and the title of Dreamhack ZOWIE Open Leipzig Champions 2016.
