A new year for DreamHack Open is upon us, and this year will deliver 9 CS:GO stops for you to enjoy; online or in person! We will begin the year in Leipzig, Germany, where 8 teams will battle it out for their share of the $100,000 prize pool and the first trophy of 2017.
As the dust has barely settled on our CS:GO server since the last event at DreamHack Winter, we are ready to kick off the new year with DreamHack Open in Leipzig, Germany on January 13-15th. The event will unfortunately not feature any qualifiers due to timing of other events, thus two wildcards have been handed out, joining the six invited teams. Qualifiers will be available rest of the season and for our next stop on the tour, which will be for Austin in April.
Teams have been invited based on rank and results through 2016, making them eligible to play in Leipzig. These teams are: Heroic, FlipSid3, LDLC, Vega Squadron, fnatic academy and Rogue. Joining them is the two wildcard teams, both newly founded. First off is Maikelele's new team qwerty, joined by Germany's new team BIG, led by veteran gob b.
These 8 teams have been seeded into groups of 4 teams, with 2 teams from each advancing to the playoffs. The groups for the event can be seen below.
fnatic academy will use Jayzwalkingz instead of Jayzar for this event.
All times listed in local time, CET.
