Three more invited to DH Winter

DreamHack has invited Clan-Mystik, fnatic and iBUYPOWER to the Winter event, bringing the participants' list to 11 teams.

The news means that DreamHack has used up all of the invites as the trio join VeryGames, compLexity and Astana Dragons - the other three sides who received a wildcard - on the participants' list.

Clan-Mystik come off an impressive winning campaign at the ESWC world finals, beating the likes of Astana Dragons and VeryGames to scoop the $12,500 prize. fnatic also attended the event in Paris, finishing 5th-8th following a quarter-final defeat to VG.

Clan-Mystik to attend DH Winter

The third team to receive an invite is none other than Sam "DaZeD" Marine's team, who were last month picked up by iBUYPOWER, a new eSports organization set up by the computer manufacturer.

The participants' list for DreamHack Winter is now the following:

Sweden NiP France VeryGames United States coL Ukraine Astana Dragons
Sweden n!faculty Sweden SK Gaming France Clan-Mystik Sweden fnatic
United States iBUYPOWER Poland UniversalSoldiers Denmark CPH Wolves
Other BYOC

c0ol, Clan Mystik to win DHW. Heard it here first.
2013-11-06 13:31
i think they'll fail hard :s
2013-11-06 13:36
no, they will reach 5-8 place atleast
2013-11-06 13:38
that is failing hard lol, but I think they will make it to the top 5, my guess would be... VG, nip, cph, CM and ibuypower hopefully :p
2013-11-06 13:46
Getting top5 at probably the toughest CS:GO LAN in existence = failing hard 10/10 logic
2013-11-06 14:17
I lol'd
2013-11-10 00:52
5-8th out of 16 against the world's best is now "failing". That logic.
2013-11-06 14:26
Denmark jjh 
ill tell u more: whoever won't win this big fat tasty cake made of 100k$ will fail, won't he?
2013-11-06 16:51
Rofl, you're a complete idiot.
2013-11-06 16:01
It's relative, and relax... If you just won a tournament beating some of the top teams in the world, 8th place wouldn't be considered doing too well. Yes, it's not failing hard and it's a decent accomplishment, but to be fair, I didn't think I'd have a bunch of guys jumping on my nuts for making an exaggeration.
2013-11-06 16:18

2013-11-07 17:37
Denmark jjh 
it's vg, nip cph, ad and sk, hard to say in which order, too many good teams, ibuypower will hardly proceed to top5.
2013-11-06 16:19
Tbh, I highly doubt SK, because they've been choking so hard lately, if they pull their shit together, it's possible, but still wouldn't be easy. CPH is definitely good, but incredibly inconsistent. And who knows how the fuck AD will perform with the massive roster change. So basically VG and NiP are the only definite top 5 teams. And you're probably right, but dazed is an amazing igl, and if any NA roster could stand a chance against the top EU teams, it's this one.
2013-11-06 16:35
SK is shit, deal with it. edit: meant to reply to #93

2013-11-06 14:29
Actually Asian teams are good, they just don't get any recognition because they can't play online tournaments (pings, etc.). Let's not forget how fun it was to watch Asian teams in 1.6 with their creative style, all those boosts etc.
2013-11-06 14:38
Denmark 3k2 
But how do you know? You haven't seen them play against any euro teams yet. :o
2013-11-06 14:53
You must be new to cs scene then..let me guess from call of duty or BF?
2013-11-06 15:45
Yep, he started playin Minesweeper and Pinball and just recently picked up the game. But to the question, how do you know? A chinese team haven't played against a euro team yet. How does that make him 'new' to the game? hltv logic argumentzZz
2013-11-06 17:02
Chinese teams have played against Euros in 1.6..He is obv new to this scene..
2013-11-06 18:43
2 years ago perhaps, this is csgo. You are obviously living in the past. The main FPS games in asia is CS:O and some other free to play games. So to the question once again... in the present... have you seen an asian team played against a european team?
2013-11-06 18:47
iNZEN was clearly talking about 1.6 and he replied to him scroll up..I am pretty sure they can still do better then the US teams
2013-11-06 19:44
I was talking about 1.6 and someone posted a video of a Japanese or whatever it was some Asian tournament anyway, the stuff they were doing there was just pure Asian creative shit, their aim didn't seem to be bad at all. The reply saying they haven't played against any European teams doesn't prove whether they're bad or not. We could say that we think Europe is so good but again they haven't played against Asian teams so how do we know?
2013-11-06 21:00
Denmark 3k2 
So yeah there was some good 1.6 teams at one point - that's been quite a while though and it doesn't mean at all, that there will be good csgo teams; in source there were 0 good teams from Asia. Yeah, they could be decent, but there surely is no way of knowing that they are on level with the competitive scene that we know. Also, he clearly was not talking about 1.6 teams being good (he even only said they were fun to watch), but was 100% trying to argue that their csgo teams were good. Btw. if your profile age is correct I've been playing since you were 8, how's that for being new? xD
2013-11-07 00:02
You should have mentioned csgo. 'But how do you know? You haven't seen them play against any euro teams(in csgo) yet. :o'
2013-11-07 00:21
Denmark 3k2 
"this is csgo" "yea, and?" "china teams suck" "actually asian teams are good" I read the comments before that - I, apparently wrongly, assumed others did too!
2013-11-07 00:28
Peace Sir Cya
2013-11-07 00:30
To be quite honest with you i couldn't give two shits whether i was 8,4 or 12 when you started playing, why does this have anything to do with it? Why are you even arguing over the fact that some Asian teams might actually be good, just a pointless argument. btw. I've been playing since i was 7. Not that new mate.
2013-11-08 15:28
Denmark 3k2 
First of all it wasn't a reply to you, but to sh4m3l355, who decided calling me "new" was a great way to undermine any argument I was trying to make. And I have never argued against that some Asian teams might be good, only against your statement that they are in fact good, but don't get any recognition for it. Of course it is possible that 5 Asians have somehow found out how to practice well enough to get on the same level as the top European teams, but I seriously doubt it, as there just isn't the same kind of competitive scene to do it in.

They are attending TECHLABS Moscow trying to get their DH spot there. If they lose they might (or not) get an invite afterwards.
2013-11-07 00:25
Hope NaVi wins the techlabs spot, LGB and Mouz the online spots. Reason and AWESOME from the BYOC? :p Thats gonna be one hell of a tournament! :D
2013-11-06 13:47
AWESOME = Reason
2013-11-06 13:57
Wups! :DD I meant Reason and ENCE. Read some comments and wasnt thinking... :/ :P But come to think of it.. I rather see like 3DMAX or ALTERNATE then ENCE. Doubt they can win any matches there.
2013-11-06 14:45
Yeah, there are 5 spots left, and with the likes of wGG, ENCE, 3DMAX, Na`Vi, LGB, ALTERNATE, Reason probably attending the qualifications, even the competition for the spots will be tough :p

Why didn't they invite Vox? I really hope those guys make it trough the BYOC.
2013-11-06 13:49
we applied, but didnt get one. We will prove ourselves at the BYOC. But it has caused us some extra expense to rent stuff.
2013-11-07 06:21
2013-11-07 10:20
maybe they invite (brazil). i heard fallen comment about the preparation of the team in his stream... will be nice too see.
2013-11-06 13:53
There are no more invites available if i am not mistaken, only way is to win the qualifier (2 spots) or the BYOC.

pretty sure any other teams that arent invited can make it through BYOC?
2013-11-07 01:35
yeah, but asia, south america and even some other teams such as ATE and Vox Eminor would make this tournament extremely (!) intersting for everyone. I doubt they'll go just to give byoc-tourney a shot :| it needs 32 teams!
