    Unfortunately, the main team's great performance in the IEM tournament in Dallas ended on June 2nd during the quarter-finals after a challenging match against MOUZ.

    In a 2-0 series, the Danish quintet lost to MOUZ, with a defeat in overtime 20-22 on the European combine's map pick Inferno and a loss of 9-16 on their own pick, Ancient.

    In the first LAN tournament with the talented 19-year-old Alexander "Altekz" Givskov on the main team, the guys achieved 5-6th place and won a prize of $10,000.

    In Dallas, Nicolai "dev1ce" Reedtz delivered an impressive performance once again.

    Although losing on Inferno, dev1ce still managed to achieve impressive stats. 

    He had the most kills (42), dealt the most damage (90.6), and got the most first kills (13). Additionally, he received the best rating (1.56).

    During the game on Ancient, the Danes were unable to mount a successful comeback on the offensive side.

    They were trailing 5-10 before switching sides for the second half.

    The European team did a great job on the second map, while the Danish squad could not push for a third and deciding duel.

    Lukas "gla1ve" Rossander and his team entered the IEM Dallas 2023 with full force and made it straight to the playoffs.

    Regrettably, the team could not maintain the same level of intensity during the tournament's final stage.

    Now it's back to the practice room to work on the positive moments from the time in Texas.
