Dreamhack Summer 2012 Coverage - Day 1

image

 

And so that day came when image Natus Vincere DOTA 2 and Counter-Strike teams have arrived to Jonkoping to compete in the summer's edition of image Dreamhack 2012. WIth so many top teams attending and competing in both titles, the tournament can be definitely considered as World Championship, especially given the recent CS 1.6 drop by Intel Extreme Masters and, alledgedly, World Cyber Games.



Both image Na`Vi teams will start their road to summer's cup tomorrow on Sunday, June 18th, and today we will witness only DOTA 2 matches in group A and B. Will image Darer and image Absolute Legends prove their level on LAN or local scandinavian teams such as image 4FC, image Infused and image TTB will battle it out to the playoff? This is the day when we will know it.

18:10 - The new video gives you an insight on Na`Vi's trip to Jonkoping and how they actually supported Ukrainian football team last night:

 

 

17:39 - image mouz is definitely one of the favourites for Dreamhack Summer 2012 trophy as they have just smashed Darer within 25 minutes and secured a solid 3:0 victory in the groupstage.

 

16:36 - Nothing goes unpredictable so far as image Darer and image mouz win the second round versus image Keita and image TTB respectively.

Very clickable and extremely enjoyable

 

 

15:00 - The first DOTA 2 results to come: image mouz were better than image Keita, while image TTB fell short to image Darer.

 

14:49 - The first live video from the event. Na`Vi show how they are prepared for the event :)

 

 

 

14:02 - The story that you should never follow: An hour before departure from Kiev, it turned out that XBOCT's passport was missing. After few minutes' hesitation, a taxi cab was taken to get the passport from XBOCT's home (which is a long way to drive from the airport). Despite doing some illegal street racing at 180 km/h, the flight registration was still missed. As there were no direct flights, our DOTA 2 star had to take connection flight via Tallin and then get a 6 hours bus just to get to Jonkoping.

The bus itself was full of gamers that bought tickets from Stockholm. It seems like every fan of video games simply cancels everything and starts his or her voyage to the gaming Mekka of Dreamhack. By the way, there were sockets and wi-fi in the bus, which makes it really overwhelming speaking about Swedish service providers.
