Gen.G, Complexity, and forZe make DreamHack Open Anaheim
Gen.G defeated Choas Esports Club and Riot Squad to earn their spot at the event. With Hansel "BnTeT" Ferdinand finally in the server, Gen.G's long-awaited roster rolled through the closed qualifiers with ease to snag their first tournament spot this year.
The squad only lost a single map, thanks in part to a tremendous performance from BnTeT. The former TYLOO player led Gen.G with 95.5 average damage per round and a 1.28 rating against Chaos EC and posted similar stats against Riot Squad.
Gen.G looked much better at the Anaheim closed qualifiers then they have at their recent appearances in the IEM Katowice 2020 and DreamHack Open Leipzig qualifiers. A concerning factor is that BnTeT's dominance was instrumental in Gen.G's win.
If BnTet has an off day, will the rest of Gen.G follow suit?
Complexity and forZe also through to DreamHack Anaheim

He was second only to former Cloud9 rifler Will "RUSH" Wierzba, who also performed well in the closed qualifiers, clutching out several rounds for Complexity. The team only dropped a single map in the playoffs on their way to the second spot.
Across the pond, forZe took down Team Heroic 2-0 in the finals of Anaheim's European closed qualifiers and took the last of Europe's slots for the tournament. forZe outclassed Heroic's Casper "cadiaN" Møller through the two maps to take the
