2017-01-12 11:33:20
Dream hack becoming a tier 4 tournament well done..
2017-01-12 11:07:40
Their smaller tournaments yes, and im pretty sure that is exactly what they are aiming for. DH masters is their tier1 tournaments and then they have the smaller tournaments for lesser, local teams and maybe one top team, which is really good for the scene as a whole

It's not part of the masters Tour FailFish
2017-01-12 13:41:36
DH always had smaller tournaments like this over the years...
2017-01-12 16:18:39
ez 4 dust mouret
2017-01-12 11:08:26
dreamhack became shit . sad .
2017-01-12 11:09:34
Why? Last DH Leipzig was good(astralis,navi,dig,lg(now sk)). The only reason why team are not top ranked - its major. The same time

2017-01-12 11:10:51
I'm really happy to see these type of tournaments. Some good teams in attendance, good price money and a lack of tier1 teams so everyone can aim to go all the way. I really think we need these kind of events as a stepping stone for new or tier 3 teams and players. In the past it was simply way too difficult for new players to break into the scene. In 2017 I really expect some new players to break into the scene.

inb4 Vega wins whole thing
2017-01-12 11:23:23
They have 70% of getting into the semi-final so who knows ? Sincerely , I will cheer for them because they showed at the EL Qual that they are a team , capable of doing damage to bigger teams and in the feature they might improve
2017-01-12 11:27:03
By beating nip? LOL NiP is tier 3 team
2017-01-12 12:23:32
its a pretty big deal because those choking fucks somehow won IEM Oakland
2017-01-12 13:33:20
its not rlly a big deal or at least not now. I mean it definitely was an upset but upsets happen once in a while. you could run the same matchup of NiP and Vega over and over again and NiP would win almost very time if not all.
2017-01-12 13:47:29
I'm saying, NiP is up and down, anyone can beat them, they can beat anyone
2017-01-12 16:40:31
they belong to no tier: one day they beat SK Gaming in a bo3, the next they get destroyed by tier 3 ruskis
