Sweden Takes Top Three in Dubai

DUBAI – Sweden has somewhat surprisingly taken the top three spots at Extreme Masters in Dubai.

ESL's Intel Extreme Master Global Challenge, which took place in Dubai, had some of the top teams in the world try their luck at the $10,000 for first place.

The biggest surprise of the event was MYM – a Swedish team which had never attended a LAN event together before and only had one official match– won their group 5 – 0, and beat the ESWC champion vitrolic.pl to make it all the way to the Grand Finals, where they met up with fnatic.

Despite playing poorly in group stage with a 3-3 record, they went on to win the event in a 2–0 over MYM.

In the consolation final, SK Gaming toppled the new vitrolic lineup 2–0, making the top three for the event all Swedish.

Final Standings:

 1.   fnatic - $10,000
 2.   MeetYourMakers - $5,000
 3.   SK Gaming - $3,000
 4.   Vitriolic- $2,000
 5-6.   Alternate - $1,000
 5-6.   k23 - $1,000
 7-12.   Virtus.pro - $500
 7-12.   Wemade Fox - $500
 7-12.   mousesports - $500
 7-12.   KerchNET - $500
 7-12.   IMPULSE - $500
 7-12.   Assassins List - $500
