Team Liquid scored an impressive victory in the finals of DreamHack Dallas CS:GO 2019, but their hard earned hardware was nowhere to be found.
The DreamHack Dallas SC:GO grand finals on June 2 saw ENCE take Liquid to a tense Map 3, but the eventual champions were able to hold them off in the end.
After a great final match Team Liquid players probably expected to get a trophy, but there was a problem - it was nowhere to be found.
As you may have noticed, the #DHMasters Dallas trophy has been no where to be seen all event. Unfortunately UPS has lost it and we’ve been unable to get it in time. We will ensure that the trophy gets shipped to @TeamLiquid once its found.— DreamHack Counter-Strike (@DreamHackCSGO) June 2, 2019
Team Liquid should have gotten a trophy to go along with their rings after winning DreamHack Dallas, if it hadn’t been lost in transit by the United Parcel Service (UPS).
While the players received their rings and commemorative plaques, the DreamHack casters confirmed that the trophy did exist, but had been lost on the way to the event.
“Probably a good time for me to mention that the actual trophy was in fact lost by the United Parcel Service, that would be UPS,” one of the casters said. “Shoutout to them.”
DreamHack promised to ship the trophy to Team Liquid “as soon as it was found,” whenever that ends up being.
The event seemed to be taking the loss of the one of the most important pieces of hardware for the entire tournament in stride, even asking ESL if they could get hooked up with DHL (another delivery company) in the future.
Team Liquid took the first map of the DreamHack Dallas grand finals, but ENCE would come back and win the second map to send it all to the third and final map.
After coming hot out of the gate, Team Liquid somehow allowed ENCE to come back on Map 3 after being down 9-1 to start things off early.
But it wasn’t meant to be, and Liquid would pull ahead in the final few rounds to walk away as DreamHack Dallas 2019 champs.
