Berlin – In the end it was a show of power: German FIFA 21 professional Dylan “DullenMike” Neuhausen won the second European regional tournament of the Global Series on Xbox One. In the final he defeated Naseem «NEissat14» Eissat with 12: 1 (3: 1; 9: 0).
“Hard work pays off,” wrote the 18-year-old on Twitter after his success at the online tournament – almost two years after his first success at a FUT Champions Cup.
In addition to a $ 15,000 win bonus, the e-athlete can look forward to 1,500 points for the FIFA Global Series. They are important items for the Global Series ranking. The 64 best-placed players in the respective console rankings qualify for the regional playoffs at the end of the season and determine the participants in the FIFA eWorld Cup.
Two other Germans just missed the big coup: Mustafa “xMusti19” Cankal (Xbox One) and Denis “Denis” Müller (Playstation 4) failed in the semi-finals of the lower bracket of the tournament. While “xMusti19” lost on the Xbox One against the final opponent of “DullenMike”, “Denis” was defeated by the eventual winner of the Playstation tournament Lucio ‘HHezerS’ Vecchione.
