DH Masters Malmö viewer's guide
With DreamHack Masters Malmö kicking off tomorrow, we have put together all the information you need in our viewer's guide including the groups, the casters, the schedule, and more.
The event which offers $250,000 in cash prizes will be the first edition of Dreamhack Masters and will be played in Malmö, Sweden. The tournament will run from the 12th of April to the 17th.
Four groups of four teams will play the group stage off-stage in the Malmö Arena from April 12-14 but it will be covered by the broadcast team from DreamHack's studio located in Stockholm. Then the playoffs will be played on-stage from April 16-17.
The group stage will have a best-of-one GSL format but the decider matches will be played as best-of-threes. Top two from each group will advance to the playoffs that will start on Saturday, which means the teams will have Friday to themselves.
