FR Titan eSports won DreamHack SteelSeries CS:GO Invitational by defeating the Swedish giant SE Ninjas in Pyjamas in the grand final on de_nuke.

During the group stage, the French-Belgium team managed to directly sent SE Emil 'HeatoN' Christensen's squad in a battle against the Danish DK Team Dignitas in the lower bracket. Titan eSports continued to move forward and faced the winners of the largest tournament to date DreamHack Winter 2013, team SE Fnatic . Titan eSports easily ran over team Fnatic and secured themselves spot for the grand final.

In the grand final, Titan eSports once again stood against the Swedish giant Ninjas in Pyjamas on de_nuke. Everything ran smoothly for the French-Belgium team in the beginning of the match, as we witnessed the in-game leader BE Kévin 'Ex6TenZ' Droolans stabbing four enemies in the knife round in order to secure the heavily favored CT side for his team. Furthermore, Titan eSports managed to secure the all important pistol round as well, thanks to BE Adil 'ScreaM' Benrliton clutching 1on1 situation against the new in-game leader of Ninjas in Pyjamas SE Robin 'Fifflaren' Johansson. Titan eSports scored the next two rounds too, including NiP's first gun round. During the fourth round, we witnessed FR Edouard 'SmithZz' Dubourdeaux taking down four opponents with auto sniper. SE Richard 'Xizt' Landström stepped up huge for the Swedish team during the next round, as he managed to clutch quite challenging 1on3 situation. SE Adam 'friberg' Friberg opened the next round for the ninjas by scoring two entry frags. Unfortunately, despite the Swedish team was able to infiltrate the lower bomb side and plant the bomb during the next round, Titan eSports quickly managed to turn the tide in their favor, leaving the low on health SE Christopher 'GeT_RiGhT' Alesund in a pretty much impossible 1on4 situation. However, Ninjas in Pyjamas' friberg went absolutely insane during the ninth round, as we witnessed him rushing the upper bomb side from squeaky door and instantly taking down four targets. SE Patrik 'f0rest' Lindberg and Xizt managed to win yet another round, but was later outsmarted by FR Richard 'shox' Papillon, who scored three kills and left GeT_RiGhT in 1on2 situation with less than ten seconds to work with. ScreaM stepped up for his team once more with four frags in the scoreboard. The French-Belgium team Titan eSports won the last round of the first half by clutching a tight 3on3 situation.

During the second half, Ex6TenZ and his troops decided to sneak from outside to downstairs covered by smokes, but were stunned by the Swedes, whom lost only one teammate during that round. Ninjas in Pyjamas secured the next two rounds too, but was defeated by FR Nathan 'NBK' Schmitt during the first gun round, which allowed his team to take the six needed rounds to win the match and the tournament with it. Titan eSports had 1-0 lead, because they came from the upper bracket.
