Team VERITAS surprised everyone at yesterday’s Dreamhack Qualifier in their first appearance ever. Our team came in as the underdog, but managed to become the 3rd best team of the event. During their impressive run they defeated the two RLCS teams Excel eSports (3:2) and Team Secret (3:1) as well as the RLRS team Fnatic (3:0), probably the most recognized esports brand in the world.
It was only in the Lower Bracket final against the RLCS team Guess Who that our boys Tigreee, Alex161 and substitute player Neqzo were defeated after three overtimes, of which one was 7 minutes long.
Even in defeat Team VERITAS was the surprise team of the evening and we can’t wait to see them at Dreamhack Leipzig on January 26th.
Here are some reactions to the impressive performance of our team:

Veritas is on quite a run in the Dreamhack qualifier lower bracket.
Beating exceL, sweeping Fnatic, then beating Secret to go to the Loser final to play against the former Mock-it squad Guess Who?
