Last night saw the DreamHack Montreal CS:GO competition come to its conclusion, and although Danish side North won the whole thing after a grand final clash with Immortals, it was the latter who caught the headlines due to their behaviour.

For a start, the team arrived late to the grand final, meaning that they forfeited the first map to give North an early lead, before losing the second 16-9 to hand the Danes the title. Regardless, this is something Immortals CEO Noah Whinston said was fair in a tweet, saying "actions should have consequences" and thanking DreamHack for following the rules.

That wasn't all, though, as Reddit user pedrohnj has collated a number of controversial and heated tweets from Vito 'kNg' Giuseppe about the incident, which follow his earlier threat on Twitter towards Pujan 'FNS' Mehta of CLG.

Let's not forget, though, that it was North who won the $50,000 USD and toppled Cloud9 to get to the grand final, topping their group as well, so all credit to them for their trophy win. Did you think they'd win it?
