DreamHack Bucharest viewer's guide

If you're trying to plan your weekend around the coming CS:GO action of DreamHack Bucharest you've come to the right place as our viewer's guide will have all the information you need.

DreamHack Bucharest has a very tight schedule with almost the entire tournament being scheduled for Saturday, and only the grand finals being left for Sunday, meaning day one will be packed with CS:GO.

The tournament at Sala Polivalenta will use the GSL group stage format, which means each group will basically be a small four team double elimination bracket, without the final being played.

Another DreamHack event plays host to this weekend's CS:GO action

As a result we can't list all the exact schedules for group games, but you can always try to figure them out on your own. Multiple streams and GOTVs will be available for each game.

Anders Blume will be streaming in English from FACEIT TV's studio in Milan, Italy, while Igor "sL4M" Sopov will be responsible for the Russian language stream.

Playoffs will be played out in a standard single elimination, best-of-three bracket with group winners facing second place finishers in the quarter-finals. How pairings will be done is still unknown.

Omg 8am Grand Final?? Really? -.- Ty for info :)
2013-09-12 18:35
10:00 local time
2013-09-12 19:44
What?? Im pretty confused. So you mean it will actually start at 10am in Bucharest, which is 8am GMT. Yes? I thought these times were local times, so it would be 6am for me xD
2013-09-12 20:16
Hover over the time and it says what timezone it covers (usually set to the default you have it set to on site). So for example if it is 8am, then it is 8am your time.
2013-09-12 20:35
Thank you sir.
2013-09-12 20:42
Thnx, didn't know you could set it to show the local times by actually setting it correctly in your profile.
2013-09-14 18:15
Final at 9 in the morning O.o
2013-09-12 18:35
Why so early?

These times are so fucked up, as much as i love cs i doubt i will wake up 09 just to watch the grand final
2013-09-12 18:35
It's weird for you to wake up at 9am? :D waaaaaaat, something else than the schedule is fucked up here.
2013-09-12 18:38
Did not say it was weird, i wake up 8am mon-fri but in the weekend i love to sleep to atleast 11-12 ish.
2013-09-12 18:41
Most of the world is already at work by 8...
2013-09-12 19:05
And ur point is?
2013-09-12 19:38
You're lazy for sleeping until 12 on the weekend.
2013-09-12 20:27
Most of the civilised world doesn't work on the weekends.
2013-09-12 21:30
How does that have anything to do with what I wrote?
2013-09-12 22:44
You said most of the world is already at work by 8, therefore making inexz lazy. I said that people don't work in the weekends. Making his R&R acceptable :)
2013-09-12 23:22
Him complaining about getting up at 8 is him being lazy.
2013-09-13 01:03
Exactly, Mwjk13 is clearly a lazy prick himself.
2013-09-13 15:20
You sound mad, how did your father treat you as a child?
2013-09-13 18:33
During the weekend... the time for R&R...
2013-09-13 18:35
You must be like 15. The rest of the adults use weekends to do things they didn't have time for during the week, and don't spend half their day in bed.

you must be 15 for talking shit to someone who doesn't live their life like yours on the internet. fuck off dude.
2013-09-14 09:01
Hàhahahahahahahahahhagagagaga
2013-09-16 02:01
Nope, I know plenty of adults that like to relax on the weekend.
2013-09-14 10:27
So does that mean that they should sleep half the day away? Must still live in your parents basement if you answer yes to this question.
2013-09-12 23:04
Nah man, live in a room, on the first floor. Maybe he works 18:00-2:00, thought of that? No? And how is he sleeping for half the day... you don't know what time he goes to sleep.
2013-09-12 23:21
IDGAF stop replying to me. It is not the fact that he sleeps to 11AM it is the fact that he complained that getting up at 9AM is a big fckin deal when clearly anyone with ANY responsibility that does not live at home anymore would face palm at that statement. Maybe you will realize that when you live in YOUR OWN house in the master bedroom with your wife.
2013-09-13 15:23
And you're complaining that he wakes up late... Maybe you should stop putting your insecurities on others. Just because you wake up early (and think you're fucking brilliant for it) doesn't mean that others need to.
2013-09-13 18:38
All i am saying if he is ANGRY that he has to wake up at 9AM he is not going to go very far in life. I am very secure in my life thanks for caring.
2013-09-13 19:08
You're angry at him for not being an early bird... That's not very secure. How do you know he won't go far in life? I know people that don't like to wake up early and have gone to Oxbridge...

funny that you say how you don't give a fuck and you want people to stop replying to you. maybe that's how everyone feels about you right now? dumbass
2013-09-14 09:07
I made you so angry ;-) I bet you are fat
2013-09-14 16:25
8am ? :O germany is so fucked...on schoolday you have to wake up at 6 am...
2013-09-12 19:38
Poor Germany indeed :>
2013-09-12 19:39
you are so lazy that you cannot wake up at 9AM on a Sunday? I am up at 5AM m - f and sleeping into 8 AM is CRAZY for me on the weekend (usually up at 7 - 730). You must be young..
2013-09-12 20:25
Young? All norwegian have free weekends exept the people with part time jobs. I love waking up at like 10 AM, so don´t sleep away the hole day.
2013-09-12 22:26
Yes young, as in you are not in the real world yet and thus are not set into a routine. If you had to get up at 5AM - 6AM for work during the week you would NOT be sleeping in till 11 - 12AM on the weekend, that is a fact Norwegian or not.
2013-09-12 23:02
My dad used to wake up at 5-6am in the weekdays and wake up at 11-12am on the weekend...
2013-09-12 23:23
I bet your mom loved the fact that your lazy dad slept in while she got up and made you breakfast. Divorced I assume?
2013-09-13 15:17
Nope, I made my own breakfast... Your childhood must have been shit :/
2013-09-13 18:33
When you were 4? Doubtful. My childhood was very good thanks for caring. I hope you are enjoying your job in retail with your 40,000 a year pay check.
2013-09-13 19:12
Don't have a job in retail :) I know children that can make breakfast at 3 :/ Your father, he was very adamant on you waking up late I guess. Whenever you relaxed he called you lazy?
2013-09-14 10:30
No one taught me to wake up early,I realized you can gain a competitive advantage in life by doing so. You will learn the same lesson it just may take you longer.
2013-09-14 16:24
I touched a nerve :/
2013-09-14 16:45
No need to make all these silly assumptions about the guy's schedule. There are plenty of reasons other than "lazy" for which a person gets up late on a Sunday.
2013-09-12 23:41
Being under 18 and living at home come to my mind.
2013-09-13 15:18

World RJC 
even if he is under 18 what the fuck does that matter? you're the type of person that shouldn't be allowed online
2013-09-14 09:03
You mean he's not a zombie slave who has to live his live by the clockwork while sucking big fat corporate Jewish dick? Yes it might indeed mean that he's still young, or might mean that he's leading a happier live, where he doesn't have to worry about elitist pricks picking on his schedule.
2013-09-13 10:25
I would lean towards the fact that he works a meaningless job and does not have much responsibility in his life (yet), nor a significant other / children or a peice of property that he calls his own. Also it is not about living "by the clockwork while sucking big fat corporate Jewish dick" it is about getting up a decent hour so that you can get your life organized on weekends, not sleeping in till 11AM, messing with your weekday schedule. Get out of bed, do something that makes you happy CONTRIBUTE to society... work on your car, take care of your yard and property, plan an activity for the weekend etc, go for a walk with your significant other, ANYTHING other than going "UGGGH fck mornings 9 AM is tooooo early DERP".

i don't get out of work until 1 or 2. am i a piece of shit for sleeping until 10 or 11 when i don't get to bed until 3, sometimes 4? no. i like to sleep. some people work late. some people need more sleep than others. some people have sleep disorders. if anyone is the underage kid here it's you. please shut the fuck up.

I just took a step back and realised how medeocre this tournament will be.
2013-09-12 18:51
yeah lol. A month or so ago the team list seemed much more impressive... lost LDLC and WW, no ESC, coL, Finnish, or UK teams.
2013-09-12 19:43
I know, yeah I'll watch, nip will win, and if they don't l, I won't really care anyway. All my favourite teams have gone. :(
2013-09-12 19:56
ESWC should be pretty good at least ;D dreamhack winter will probably be the best though, usually all the best teams show up for that
2013-09-12 20:32
Let's hope so

Link for groups? and what about Quarter Finals? 1st From A vs 2nd From B?
2013-09-12 18:59
I'd rather play a final at 9-10 am than after a long day, you have a night's sleep before the game plus the fact that you go into the final with a clear mind. :)
2013-09-12 19:03
you won't
2013-09-12 19:05
I don't know if you're an idiot or that's just you acting normal, trying to act so cool maybe people laught at your "jokes". When I saw you're actually 24 I kinda lost all hope for people like you, not even going to bother trying to explain that everybody is entitled to his own opinion or even ask who the fuck you are, because I never heard of you in the cs romanian scene. Hope your English is good enough so you don't have to go to Google Translate.
2013-09-12 19:11
The amount of delays there will be on this event...
2013-09-12 19:05
guess the final is at this time because of LoL garbage
2013-09-12 19:05

For the sake of dreamteam, please make clear who plays who in the playoffs, like: A1 vs B2 A2 vs B1 C1 vs D2 C2 vs D1 A1/B2 vs C2/D1 A2/B1 vs C1/D2

Looks like u missed something - "How pairings will be done is still unknown."
2013-09-12 21:06
its weird cause groups A & B and C & D play the groupstage at the same times respectively... therefore you cant watch all the games live. f***ing schedule

Looks good, but that Grand Final is way too early. Whatever happened to "prime time" finals?
2013-09-12 20:36
rip grand final time :(
2013-09-12 21:26
It's a time slot on a national television thats why it s so early.
2013-09-12 23:49
9 am for a final on a SUNDAY is too early. I bet it'll have low numbers. Why not 13-14 so every continent can watch it?

I don't know know why tournaments are still uses that retarded system. It's random. Let's have a look at group a. NiP 16-4 TeG fnatic 16-2 nextPlease! NiP 16-12 fnatic TeG 12-16 nextPlease so here we have it, NIP advancing of course and after fnatic has completely destroyed nextPlease in the first match, they have to play nextPlease once more. this time however, nextPlease wins 14-16 and voila, nextPlease advances despite the fact that fnatic raped them 16-2 in the first match, they are 3rd. possibly just because they lost both pistol rounds and had 1 or 2 more unfortunate rounds. so random.
2013-09-13 15:59
