Danish CS:GO outfit North rack up their first championship title of 2017 this weekend, clutching a win at Dreamhack Montreal.

North won out over the Brazilian CS:GO team Immortals, but the grand final was marred somewhat by Immortals forfeiting a match due to tardiness, the moment shown in this Twitch clip below.
