Four teams will be taking part in the event, three from Europe, who will have qualified via an online league, and one from the United States, who should be invited by the organisers.

The online stage of the event will run from August 22 to September 19, with 10 European teams playing a round-robin phase to determine which three will attend the event in the Russian capital.

Another good opportunity for an american team to face international competition. Looks promising.
2014-08-08 04:15
Too low of prizepool. Costs around $12,000 to go to a Lan from NA
2014-08-08 04:17
The $8k in travel support should alleviate much of that.
2014-08-08 04:18
I'm pretty sure that $8k is for all the teams, not per team though. So while it helps teams from all over Europe, it's not enough for a US team.

So GameShow, one of organisers of DreamHack Moscow create their own league, but cant add cs:go to games pool, istead of it there will be shitty Point blank. Nice one.
2014-08-08 08:39
+ -_-
2014-08-08 08:48
They are organizers.
2014-08-08 13:24
So why they go with these point blank istead of cs:go? Noone need this f2p shit.
2014-08-08 15:27
I guess DreamHack isn't interesting in hosting CSGO cup in Russia, that's why. :p They host Point Blank because it's really popular in Russia. That's what I think, I'm not sure to be honest.
2014-08-08 15:32
Don't use AIRPLANEs to get there if you want to back in one piece

Everyone wants to create his own league Starlader, ESEA, FACEIT, GameShow Why Sweeden and France has no their home league? )
2014-08-08 09:26
because they have the best teams that gonna be invited to all your leagues , and will probably win most of them.
2014-08-08 09:42
It was a joke) I think it would be better to create one EU organization which will organize all competitions Lan final could be playing in different countries Why top teams coudnt organize something like cKOTH? They will get more money without intermediaries
2014-08-08 10:07
I think it would be better to create one EU organization for example create league nato in Kiev?xD
2014-08-08 10:23
At first new league must stop to invite russians, asiats should be playing with eastern Asia Nostalgia for nostalgia (
2014-08-08 10:36
asiats ahahah ua should be playing with NA?
2014-08-08 10:40
Ua should be playing with Europe And for european team there is no any reason playing with NA, their organizers should give EU teams lan finals slots without online part Most money EU-NA leagues earn from EU, and its not clever share them with americans + More higher european cs lever. Why european football teams allways pay to Brazil if they want to play with them and cs teams couldnt make the same? ))

"The LAN finals will feature a $22,000 prize purse, with an extra $8,000 been given to the teams to help cover travel costs." That's really nice move by them, I hope every tournament would do that. :-D dignitas, Epsilon, LC and C9.

I really think that they should invite one team like dAT and maybe Epsilon, so they gain LAN experience
