Format for DH Open Cluj revealed
DreamHack has announced the format and schedule for the upcoming CS:GO major, in Cluj-Napoca.
From October 28 to November 1, the Romanian city of Cluj-Napoca will play host to what is likely to be the last CS:GO major tournament of the year, where 16 teams from all over the world will duke it out for their share of a $250,000 prize pool.
The tournament will kick off with a double-elimination group stage in which every match will be played in a best-of-one format except the decider game, which will be a best-of-three clash. The biggest difference from the format used at ESL One Cologne is the fact that the Lower Bracket teams will no longer be drawn into new groups after day one.
Cluj major will be played at the Polyvalent Hall
At the end of the group stage, the top two teams from each group will advance to the best-of-three, single-elimination playoffs.
