This afternoon saw Dreamhack Winter releasing some of the final details regarding the $250,000 CS:GO event that will be taking place in Jönköping, Sweden. Amongst that was the list of the 16 teams that will be attending the event. Number 15 on that list sees our very own Bravado Gaming.
This means that Bravado Gaming will be travelling to Sweden later this month to compete against the best of the best in the next CS:GO major for this year. According to Andreas “cent” Hadjipaschali, owner of Bravado Gaming and also captain of their CS:GO team, the team will also attend the boot camp that will be taking place before the event, which includes accommodation, PC’s to train on and transport to DreamHack Winter.

DreamHack also clarified from their side how Bravado Gaming got an invite to the event:
“We’re giving Bravado Gaming (from South Africa) the chance, who next to a couple of other international teams (outside EU & NA), reached out to participate in this tournament. Since the previous events have focused on teams from Asia & Oceania, we believed it’s good for the sports to let a new continent get their fair chance.”
Bravado Gaming are no strangers to DreamHack, last year Dimitri ‘Detrony’ Hadjipaschali represented Bravado Gaming at DreamHack Winter 2013 in Quake Live. All in all it really is good news for eSports for South Africa, especially CS:GO as we had Energy eSports competing last week at the ESWC in Paris, France and we also had Bravado’s Dota2 team Emotion competing in the MSI Beat IT 2014 Global Finals in Taipei, Taiwan.
From nAvTV’s side we would like to wish Bravado Gaming the best of luck and safe travels to and from Sweden. Make us proud!
