Gorgc secures an EU 2021 DPC Season 2: Lower Division berth

Gorgc’s Team Bald Reborn had a flawless run in the open qualifier initially as they won all their games to qualify for the closed qualifier. Then, in the closed qualifier, the team registered a convincing 2-0 victory over plan-B esports in the first round of the Upper Bracket. 

They had a herculean task ahead of themselves in the next round as they faced Ghost Frogs, who were widely considered as the top contenders in the event. Gorgc and teammates could not replicate their performances from the previous matches as they got crushed 2-0 by them. Falling down to the Lower Bracket, they were able to bounce back as they secured wins over hehe united and Meta4Pro. 

Only one series win away from a Lower Division berth, Team Bald Reborn competed against former OG Seed member, Peksu’s team, Astronauts. Both the teams registered comprehensive victories over each other in the first two games. The final game proved to be a thriller as it lasted for 78 minutes and witnessed an amazing comeback from Team Bald Reborn. Though they were nearly 40K+ networth down at the 70-minute mark, they successfully executed a Roshan smoke play at the 77-minute mark to win the game. 

While the players have switched roles in a couple of games, this is the team's roster from position 1 to 5.

  1. Janne "Gorgc" Stefanovsk
  2. Steve "Xcalibur" Ye
  3. Roy "Rajjix" al Rajji
  4. Axel "Pablo" Källman
  5. Enis "5up" Elfki
