steel returns to LAN with his new project
DreamHack has announced that MDL side Ben's Anime Team will be taking the place of Cloud9 at DreamHack Open Atlanta.
We've been getting DM's asking us who is the final team to Atlanta & sometimes "can my global elite team come instead?!"— DreamHack Counter-Strike (@DreamHackCSGO) November 7, 2019
But fear not, we've found a replacement!
A legendary team, an anime squad of kinds...but not just any anime squad... Ben's Anime Team (✿◠‿◠)! #DHOpen
Ben's Anime Team burst into the MDL season during week five and continued pressing forward, finishing second in the standings of the regular season with a 15-2 record. During their short yet productive time as a team, they also competed in the DreamHack Open Atlanta Closed Qualifier. There, they lost out to INTZ, who claimed one of the two spots at the LAN, while The Quest were triumphant over Riot Squad in the other semi-final.
Joshua "steel" Nissan and co. will be joining seven other teams all competing for the lion's share of $100,000, with the tournament taking place on November 15-17.
Along with announcing the addition of Ben's Anime Team to DreamHack Open Atlanta, DreamHack has also released the groups as well as the opening matchups. Two teams in the top 20, Heroic and CR4ZY, headline the event, while Virtus.pro make their return to a DreamHack event after an absence of over a year.
