Polish side Virtus.pro defeated Cloud9 on Train (16-9) and Cobblestone (16-9) and took home the title of DreamHack Bucharest, alongside the $50,000 prize.
“(Cloud9) surprised us, first of all by picking Train and also picking T side after winning the knife round, that felt like Christmas. But that was the only match we didn’t really know the opponent before the game, so we decided to play our own stuff. Before every other game we got ready, watched the opponent, here we had no idea what would happen. So we just played our game and I guess that’s what caught them off-guard,” said Filip “NEO” Kubski in an interview to HLTV after the match.
Virtus.pro’s road to the Championship started after they topped their group after defeating both Gambit eSports and Heroic. The team faced Team Dignitas in the semifinals, marked by NEO’s fantastic 1v5 clutch.
With a HLTV rating of 1.26, Paweł “byali” Bieliński was the MVP of the tournament.
