DH Malmö European qual. invites out
DreamHack has revealed the invited teams that will participate in the European Closed Qualifier #1 for DreamHack Masters Malmö, featuring dignitas, mousesports, G2 and more.
The first edition of DreamHack Masters will be hosted in Malmö, Sweden, from April 12-17, with $250,000 on the line. Some of the world's best team will be in attendance as eight teams have been directly invited and Tempo Storm, CLG and Liquid have qualified via the North American qualifier.
Europe will hold two qualifiers, one from March 12-13 and the other from March 19-20. The first day on both occasions will be an open tournament featuring 512 teams that will clash in a best-of-one single elimination format. The squads that succeed in reaching the top eight will earn the chance to attend the closed stage.
MSL & co. disappointed in Columbus, they'll want to bounce back
The sixteen squads that are in the closed tournament will have to outplay their opponents and reach the top two to qualify, meaning both of the closed stages will give away two spots, four in total. All of the combined 1028 open stage spots have been claimed and no more teams will be able to sign up.
Among the invited teams of the European Closed Qualifier #1 are G2, MOUZ and FlipSid3, who booked their tickets this weekend to Columbus to attend the first ever $1,000,000 major after coming through at Main Qualifier.
