DH Winter 2014 CS GO: Titan and Epsilon disqualifiedFor the last few months French teams dominated on CS GO scene, and almost entire community expected battles between teams from France versus other big names such as Sweden NiP, Sweden fnatic, Poland Virtus.pro and others.

And now this is not going go to happen. The huge cheat scandal made a hit yesterday. Within one day two well-known players France Hovik 'KQLY' Tovmassian and France Gordon 'Sf' Giry got VAC-bans for cheating. Few hours later, organizers behind Sweden Dreamhack Winter 2014 have announced that both teams France Titan and France Epsilon are disqualified from the event. It's extremely sad situation for their temmates, because not only they have lost opportunity to take part in a major tournament, but lost a lot of money from prize purse and "stickers". From other point of view, such punishment probably will stop to use the cheat for other "dirty" players, because now it's clear that in case of VAC-ban - entire team will be punished.

Norway London Conspiracy, Finland 3DMAX, Denmark Cph Wolves and Sweden Flipsid3 Tactics are invited to special LAN Qualifier which will be held right before the Dreamhack Winter 2014 CS GO. Two owners of empty slots will be determined in this mini-tournament in single elimination format. Important to note that USA VALVe will cover all travel and live expenses for participants of mini-LAN Qualifier.

The Dual Turnament that will be played prior to the group stage of the USA San Jose stop from Germany Intel Extreme Masters Season 9 has had it's Bracket drawn.
