BIG Delivers! DreamHack Masters Spring 2020 Recap (EU and NA)




The tournaments of DreamHack Masters Spring 2020 were incredible and full of esports betting opportunities for all those who wanted to bet on CS:GO. In this article, I will provide a brief summary of the event and the implications for your future CS:GO betting endeavors.

DreamHack Masters Spring 2020 Summary

Here’s what happened in the two most contested regions of DreamHack Masters Spring 2020.

Europe was turned upside down by a German team

The competition in Europe lasted for 4 weeks, had a prize pool of $160,000, and featured 16 teams. At the start of the tournament, some of the most likely winners were Natus Vincere, Astralis, and FaZe Clan. But roster changes and underperformance issues started to change everyone’s forecasts quite dramatically.

In particular, almost nobody could have predicted that BIG was strong enough to beat the world’s greatest teams. And while G2’s presence in the Grand Final was partly expected, it was still very impressive to see the French continue their good run in 2020. First, they impressed at BLAST Premier: Spring 2020 Regular Season, then they finished 2nd at IEM XIV World Championship and ESL One: Road to Rio – Europe. Now they got another 2nd place finish at a huge event.

It’s been a long time since a German roster managed to conquer the CS:GO pro scene in the European region. Of course, mousesports did it several times not that long ago, but their roster is not German, even though the organization is. So it’s definitely a breath of fresh air to see BIG making it big under the leadership of tabseN (IGL) and tow b (coach). I’m curious to see how high they will climb in the global rankings as a result of this victory. Right now they’re sitting at number 24.

To give you a better idea of what you can expect in the future, here’s the table with the complete Playoffs results.

North America was finally won by FURIA Esports

After many failed attempts to win a prestigious title, FURIA Esports has finally done it. The Brazilian squad was crowned champion of North America after defeating Team Liquid in the Grand Final of DreamHack Masters Spring 2020 with ease. The match started from the score of 1 – 0 for FURIA, because they were the Upper Bracket participant. The final score was 3 – 0, after a disputed map 2 and a very one-sided map 3.

In total, the North American competition had 8 participants and a prize pool of $100,000. Given the high quality of these participants, the results in this tournament are perfectly relevant for future competitions. Here’s the complete list of these results:

1st place

FURIA Esports

2nd place

Team Liquid

3rd place

100 Thieves

4th place

Cloud9

5th – 6th place

Gen.G Esports

Apart from FURIA, the most shocking result of this tournament was Evil Geniuses’ last-place finish. The NA team used to be the second-best in the region. Now they’re struggling to regain their form.
