DreamHack announce Malmö groups
DreamHack have revealed the groups for the $250,000 DreamHack Masters Malmö, taking place from April 12-17 in the Malmö Arena.
The groups will see four teams battle it out in each group in a best-of-one, GSL scenario, with the exception of the deciding match played in a best-of-three, much like at MLG Columbus.
The first three days will be played off stage in the Malmö arena, but covered by the broadcast team from DreamHack's studios in Stockholm, which means everyone will get a day off on Friday before the playoffs begin, as shown in the full schedule further below.
The groups are following:
|Group A||Group B||Group C||Group D|
At the same time, due to similar reasons Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács was pondering over skipping the event as well, but he will be travelling to Malmö with Natus Vincere after all. However, having been contacted by HLTV.org the Slovak admitted that he will be replaced if his condition gets worse during the tournament.
