DreamHack Masters Dallas 2019 is heating up, and tournament organizers revealed on May 30 the insane Championship rings that the top Counter-Strike: Global Offensive teams will be vying for over the weekend.

As the Group Stages for the six-day event draw to a close, teams are competing for the best placements possible in the Arena matches for a better chance to claim the top honors in Texas.

While teams will be plenty motivated to get the lion’s share of the $250,000 pot up for grabs, they’ll be happy to see the icing on top that the champions will earn after lifting the tournament trophy.

“Think it’s time to reveal what the little teaser was from yesterday,” DreamHack said, ramping up to the reveal. “The winning team at CORSAIR DreamHack Masters Dallas will get personalised Championship rings!”

Across the face of the rings appear to be more than 20 diamonds lining the DreamHack logo, with “Dallas Masters Champions” prominently positioned on the front.

Meanwhile, the ring will have the famous split Counter-Terrorist and Terrorist merged emblems on one side, while the other side is fixed with the silhouette of a CT.

The rings also have a “gamertag” placeholder, which will be custom-made with their owner’s in-game ID. Names like ‘NiKo,’ ‘Stewie2k,’ and ‘allu’ will easily fit in that template, but it’ll be interesting to see how they fit names like ‘olofmeister’ and ‘Gratisfaction’ should the need arise.

DreamHack Masters 2019 has been full of surprises

Even before the rings were announced, players have been giving it their all as upsets and insane clutches have been littering the Group Stage in Dallas.

NA fans will quickly have to bank their hopes on Team Liquid to keep the trophy on American soil, seeing how Cloud9 were eliminated by NRG who were taken out of the tournament shortly after by G2.

Fnatic were also eliminated in a shocking loss to the relentless Renegades, who are now looking to lock their place in the Quarterfinals against G2.

At the time of writing, FaZe Clan and Liquid are locked in an intense match to see who will claim the first spot in the semi-finals.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive legend Christopher ‘GeT_RiGhT’ Alesund became the first god of the game by dazzling a generation of players, propelling the game’s meta by years, and leaving a historic mark not to be outdone anytime soon.

Since 2010, before CS:GO ever hit the market, GeT_RiGhT was already terrorizing teams in 1.6 with fellow Swede Patrik ‘f0rest’ Lindberg. Since their early 20s, the duo would rampage through events during their stints at Fnatic and SK Gaming.

If his career would have stopped in the 1.6 servers, his name would have still carried weight through the esports annals -but then, Global Offensive came out in 2012, where he would ascend to even greater heights of notoriety.

From the start, GeT_RiGhT would prove to be an instrumental force to reshape the Counter-Strike meta, specializing in dangerous lurks that would tilt opponents or catch them off guard.

It was risky, but so was his modus operandi. When early CS:GO pros would perfect their taps for long-range kills, he would hold Mouse1 to mow down entire teams with pinpoint recoil mastery.

He would soon be known for his multi-kills from a distance, without the need for consecutive fires, instead electing for choice bullet accuracy to push his team forward.

The #1 player in the world in 2013 and 2014, GeT_RiGhT, and the rest of the reformed Ninjas in Pyjamas that included Adam ‘Friberg,’ Robin ‘Fifflaren’ Johansson, Forest, and Richard ‘Xizt’ Landström would create an astounding 87-0 map win run.

GeT_RiGhT would go on to have an illustrious career filled with trophies, titles, and glory, becoming the first god of CS:GO along the way.
