#HSH Week 8: Group D Preview
The last group of #HomeSweetHomes final week is upon us and as always we preview the teams. AGF Esport, Complexity Gaming, Hard Legion ...
#HomeSweetHome is back with its sixth week of play and we see a few new teams enter the tournament. In group A we have one of the early favourites, HAVU Gaming, making their debut. They will get tough competition though, as the reigning champions Heroic join the group together with Gambit Youngsters and Ambush Esport. The four will fight it out for the two spot to the playoffs and a chance at the total of $40,000 that gets awarded weekly.

Ambush participated in week 4 of #HomeSweetHome and even if they managed to get a win against ALTERNATE aTTaX it ended in a 3rd place spot in the group. As if they didn’t already have a tough time in the tournament their second showing will be brutal. The three other teams in the group all have good chances to go far and the possibility for the Danes in Ambush to reach the playoff are really, really slim. Ryxxo is one of the players in the team who can elevate the team and if they are going to have any chance at all he has to play on his absolute best. Realistically this will once again be a chance for the team to see and learn. Their opening game against Heroic is a must win and that says it all how tough this challenge is.
The young guns in Gambit Youngsters have already played in three weeks of #HomeSweetHome. It’s been a rollercoaster, just as most showings by the team. In the fourth week the team reached a semifinal and it was really close to a final, as they narrowly lost to Team Secret. The strength of the team is mainly sh1ro and Ax1Le, who both can carry their team to wins against almost anyone when they have their day, but it doesn’t happen enough to see them as a favourite to go deep. There is a whole lot of talent and potential in this team, but getting drawn against Heroic and HAVU this week might just end it in the groups once again for Gambit Youngsters, at least all available information would point towards that being the most likely scenario.
HAVU has made themselves a respected name in the CS:GO scene this year, especially through their amazing run in Flashpoint, that ended with an overall third place. After that the team has mostly gathered wins as well as they have participated in BLAST Rising. Things are definitely looking good in the Finnish squad and the team is truly a team, but players like sLowi and ZOREE are still big individual threats and have proved themselves over and over during the year. When they now enter #HomeSweetHome they will truly be put to the test as they play in this tough group. Looking at the form HAVU is in right now that should not be an issue though and even if Heroic might become a tough opponent, the minimum HAVU should do is reach the playoff.
Heroic played in #HomeSweetHome for the first time last week and as they managed to win it all it’s hard to find any negatives. The Danes steamrolled through most of it and more than likely they will bring that momentum into the sixth week. CadiaN, stavn and niko all had amazing performances and even if they are a clear favourite to potentially repeat the success, things could get difficult as both HAVU and Gambit Youngsters could give Heroic a scare. A massive plus for the team is that they face Ambush in the opening game, and honestly that should more or less be a free win. Heroic can win it all again and should get to the playoffs fairly comfortably, but there is still a chance that it might get tougher than one would expect from a reigning champion.
