DreamHack Leipzig viewer's guide

With DreamHack ZOWIE Open Leipzig kicking off tomorrow, we have prepared a viewer's guide with all information that you might need to know about the event taking place from January 22-24.

Eight teams have gathered in Leipzig, Germany, to fight for a share of the $100,000 prizepool. The teams were distributed into two groups according to their seeds.

Group stage will feature best-of-ones in the initial round as well as winners' matches, while elimination and decider matches will be played in a best-of-three format. 

Group A Group B

We have put together a preview for the group stage, which delves into the groups' specific match-ups as well as potential encounters in the following rounds.
