Dare2Dream have won the ESL Challenger #2 by defeating tMg 2-0 (16-10 on Mirage, 16-9 on dust2) in the best of three grand finals.
Dare2Dream started off their first game of the finals in Mirage, where they managed to quickly dominate the first set of the match by winning the first four rounds and the following few. SpawnN, however, did manage to extend their lead by clutching 1v1 against Marzil even though he was on 5 HP. Kav1sh showed extra ordinance while getting kills.
The new addition made a notable difference to the team. Antidote, as usual eliminating the opponents in sheer confidence which helped D2d secure a great first half. Haku, however, on the other side of the charts, denied any further superiority and got his team back on track with scores leveled 9-9. HellRanger, on the other hand, joined the party of putting tMg down one by one alongside the star of the match, Antidote.
Dar2Dream finished off the first map convincingly by leaving tMg six rounds short, they ended mirage 16-10. Dare2Dream attended ESL Challenger with:
- Bhavin ‘HellRanger’ Kotwani
- Mohit ‘Spawn’ Wakle
- Shailesh ‘Blackhawk’ Dalvi
- Kavish ‘Kav1sh’ Chauhan
- Sabyasachi ‘Antidote’ Bose
The second map Dust2, which relentlessly relies on aim-duels started pretty well with Antidote once again starting things off with a double kill at long. Kav1sh was joining in the celebration, clutching a comfortable anti-eco. Antidote, apparently had no chill as he had the ball in his court most of the times, confident enough to take aim-duels with the top players in different circumstances. BlackHawk clinched a triple kill in the buy round by sneaking into the t-spawn and getting long-range impact kills.
It was good to see HellRanger and SpawN back in form.
The score went ahead to comfort D2d as they led the first half by eight clean rounds. Marzil, though, did his best in getting tMg first round on the board through his AWP skills. D2d were forced to take a tactical timeout as they lost a couple of rounds. The first half made a halt at 10-5 after SpawN massively clutched a 1v3 post-plant scenario.
It was all a one-sided affair from there onwards. Although AKS, took charge of the anti-eco round after losing the second pistol. The scores were 11-6. After that, D2d marginally allowed tMg to win only three rounds as they closed the second map 16-9. Dare2Dream is the second winner of the Challenger title after Entity Esports – Blue won the Challenger #1. Follow Dare2Dream on facebook.
