DreamHack Summer viewer's guide
Full schedule for DreamHack Summer 2013 has been released and we can now publish our official viewer's guide for the summer's first Counter-Strike: Global Offensive event.
Curious to find out when your favorite team will play? What time will NiP begin their campaign and what time can you expect Virtus.pro to make their LAN debut with Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács?
Look no further as the information is now readily available. Please note that due to the GSL-type group stage format not all matches are pre-planned, but you can still figure most of them out.
Can NiP defend their championship in Jönköping?
In each group teams can advance to playoffs by winning two games, while losing two will knock them out, as per a regular double elimination bracket, simply for four teams.
BYOC qualifier will be held on Saturday prior to the main tournament's start. Top two finishers will be randomly placed in groups C and D with no grand final set to take place.
