Below you can find the full viewer's guide for DreamHack Winter 2013, which will be the biggest CS:GO tournament in history with its grand $250,000 prize purse.

DreamHack Winter 2013 will kick off on Thursday with groups A and B, the on-site BYOC qualifier and the first two quarter-finals taking place at Elmia in Jönköping, Sweden.

You can find groups for the event through our DreamHack Winter 2013 event page, which also features a list of relevant news, articles, a link to Dreamteam and much more.

Friday will feature groups C and D, as well as the quarter-finals for the remaining two groups. Saturday is reserved solely for the semi-finals and the grand final. Below is the prize distribution:

1. $100,000
2. $50,000
3-4. $22,000
5-8. $10,000
9-16. $2,000

As you can tell from the prize distribution, no third place decider will take place. All matches will be broadcasted by DreamHack TV, which will feature two different official streams in English.

The main stream will feature the crew of six people announced before, with Anders Blume anchoring a secondary stream together with Auguste "SemmlerTheRiot" Massonat.

In the group stage each team will eliminate two maps from the five map pool. In the playoffs each team will eliminate just one map, leaving three for the best-of-three series.

2013-11-26 15:37
The matches will be played on Valve's system, so presumably everyone will be able to connect just like to a matchmaking game.
2013-11-26 15:51
that's pretty nice!

Thanks bro ;)
2013-11-26 16:08

2013-11-26 16:02
12:00 A2 loser vs. A2 loser A1 vs A2 mby?
2013-11-26 16:02
Best of luck to all. Hope for a great tournament!
2013-11-26 16:12
Wtf so early on Thurs and friday gg low viewership
2013-11-26 16:13
The Bo1 format is fucking brutal. " Lose 2 MAPS(2 FUCKING MAPS)" and you are sent home. I completely disagree with this. They should get rid of the group format and just set up 1 big bracket with Bo3. If you lose, you will go down to the losers bracket with another Bo3. This way you will have the chance to at least play 4 maps and bigger chances for the better team to win.
2013-11-26 16:20
the bo1 is in the BYOC right?
2013-11-26 16:57
Main Tournament in the group stage. :(
2013-11-26 17:32
Yeah, that would make much more sense, especially given how much is at stake here. I'm pretty concerned that iBP may be a little uncomfortable given they don't have much LAN experience, and if they don't adjust quickly, they'll be out of the tournament in 2 seconds.
2013-11-26 19:41
Agreed. There isn't much reason for a group stage when you have three days and a sixteen team bracket.
2013-11-26 20:20
semi final GROUP A VS B ? OR GROUP A VS C OR D OR B VS C AND E ?
2013-11-26 16:20
Good question. Otherwise I can't figure who's gonna win.
2013-11-26 16:51
+1 need the info
2013-11-26 17:39
Cant fooking wait. Pumped for the BYOC tournament.
2013-11-26 16:21
Any schedule for the BYOC available?
2013-11-26 16:34
US BEST
2013-11-26 16:41
OMG biggest tournament ever on week days :-/
2013-11-26 16:45
yup, that sucks :(
2013-11-26 17:00
A bit disappointed for not having third place decider, but.. At least everything else seems to be fine for now.
2013-11-26 16:58
a 3rd place decider would be nice indeed. they could give 24k to 3rd placed and 20k to 4th and it would still be fair
2013-11-26 18:49
QF1: LGB v CM QF2: NiP v iBP QF3: VG v coL QF4: CHW v AD LGB, NiP, VG, CHW move forward. Nostradamus shit.
2013-11-26 16:59
Easy win for LGB.

In the playoffs each team will eliminate just one map, leaving three for the best-of-three series. All teams will ban Mirage and Train.OK, we are going to see a big tournament with only three maps to played. Im so tired of dust2,nuke,and train.why dont just let the admin randomly pick maps for each match?
2013-11-26 17:05
Why no cache and season ? ... At least there shouldn't exist the possibility to VETO maps, we are going to see BO3 almost always (90%) Nuke, Dust2, Inferno. It won't be 100% because some teams will prefer to VETO the other teams best map or their worse map. I think it should be randomized the map for the BO1 and BO3s, even if cache and season were included on the map pool. A map pool with 7 maps or 9 maps would be perfect. (Dust2, Inferno, Mirage with fixes or _ce, Train with fixes or volcano fixed (volcano's map + valve "new" changes inside to prevent scar20 abuse), Nuke, Cache, Season, Tuscan (when done, 2022 mb), Forge or cbble). Teams would have to practice more maps but at least we would see more variety and more choice for the teams. Nothing against this map pool, but using valve's train and mirage will result in a 3 map pool.

+1 boring map pool
2013-11-26 17:40
agreed. We saw what happened at the last raidcall EMS de_inferno cup when teams are left to veto maps. Both teams should get to veto ONE map from the map pool which would be these five + cache and season, the 1st map should be random, 2nd map should be loser of 1st game's pick, 3rd map should be loser of 2nd game's pick. I have a feeling every single bo3 will be nuke, d2, inferno

dreamteam ?
2013-11-26 18:02
Works the same way as a fantasy football league...you put together your own "dreamteam", buy players etc, and the skill level and how much each player is worth continue to change, depending on how good play-rating they get in official matches :) And with this dreamteam, you can add the team to "imaginary" leagues based on real leagues...you get a good team together, and win, you get imaginary money to spend on better players etc.

It's a shame that there is no double-elimination. Especially since there is a big difference in terms of prize money between the ranks.
2013-11-26 18:38
why is there only a five map pool? this blows dude...

Thursday, Friday, Saturday :( looks like some people will miss a lot of matches on stream.
2013-11-26 19:33
Yeah it sucks for some people... I am glad that I am not one of them xp The only one that I am not sure that I can watch entirely is semifinal 1, the rest of matches is piece of cake. BTW I don't know why they didn't move the entire event one day forward, Friday-Sunday, would have more viewers.
2013-11-26 19:48
Pretty late grand-final, my only real criticism.
2013-11-26 19:56

this is fucking stupid. have the god damn event friday, saturday, sunday you dumb morons. now I'm going to miss all the matches on thursday and friday whereas I could have at least saw the matches saturday and sunday.
2013-11-27 02:04
Wonder how many of the matches I'll be able to catch Thursday, what with it being Thanksgiving in the U.S Oh well; I don't really see any big surprises happening in A or B anyway.
