Beyond Esports move on at DreamHack Masters - Asia

Beyond Esports swept a tight battle with Lucid Dream on Friday to reach the lower-bracket final at the DreamHack Masters Spring 2020 - Asia event.

Beyond won 16-13 on Inferno and 16-14 on Dust II to eliminate Lucid Dream, who finished in fourth place.

Beyond will face ViCi Gaming in Saturday’s lower-bracket final, with the winner advancing to meet TYLOO in Sunday’s best-of-five grand final. TYLOO will begin that match with a one-map advantage by virtue of winning the upper bracket.

Beyond built a 14-7 lead on Inferno before Lucid Dream rallied by winning six straight rounds. On Dust II, Beyond trailed 14-6 before winning the last 10 rounds.

Krit “Kntz” Chaiprasit tallied 56 kills and a plus-19 differential to lead Beyond, while Kitikawin “PTC” Rattanasukol paced Lucid Dream with 39 kills and an even differential.
