DreamHack India has revealed the second CS:GO team that has been invited to participate in the DreamHack India Invitational 2018 - Bravado Gaming.

The announcement comes shortly after their former South African compatriots - Energy Esports, were invited to the event.

Bravado Gaming was a South Africa based esports organization until early 2018 but have relocated their CS:GO squad to the North American region since 17th January 2018. The move was made in order to gain additional international experience.

They were one of the best South African teams until early 2018, constantly facing heavy competition from Energy Esports. The team rose to fame after winning the first season of ESL Africa Championship, which is one of the biggest annual tournaments that takes place in Africa.

In almost all African CS:GO tournaments, the grand final used to take place between Energy Esports and Bravado Gaming. The rivalry between the two teams had become a very competitive with 'National Derby' feel to it, with both pride and reputation at stake.

While the intense competition between the two sides has fizzled out after Bravado Gaming shifted its base of operations for its CS:GO squad. The team has not stopped growing as they have already acquired reputation and fame in the North American region, finishing first at the ESEA Season 28 – North American Division followed by a second place finish in the recently concluded DreamHack Winter 2018.
