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. 

Groups can be found below:

Group A Group B Group C Group D
Brazil Luminosity CIS Natus Vincere  Denmark Astralis Poland Virtus.pro

Still janko among these analysts, are you for fucking real? Better get Thorin's mom, will be much lovely to watch tbh.
2016-04-11 12:52
Ynk is a genius, how dare you insult him
2016-04-11 12:59
More like opposite definition of genius, none of his predictions on last major were on point and guess why :)
2016-04-11 13:02
are you joking? he actually makes the most sense from all so called "analysts"
2016-04-11 13:06
Quote me at least 1 of his great analisies and i'll publicly apologise
2016-04-11 13:08
The analysts at the major were trying to give new viewers a sense of who the favourites are, so they weren't going with their heart and were just picking the favourite a lot of the time. Anyway, predicting which team will win isn't an analyst's main goal because who cares if they get it right or not? Ynk is really good at knowing which maps will be picked which allows him and the other analysts to gain more insight into how the series will likely play out.
2016-04-11 13:07
Youre real dumbass, do you even know what analyst means? TO ANALYZE GAME, NOT FUCKING GIVE YOU BETTING ADVISES also, how much?
2016-04-11 13:23
The reason why he's being analyst is that he must have decent understanding of the game and be able to provide quality knowledge to not only newcomers, but the ones that followed scene for years as well, but janko is not capable of neither of the shit apparantly, if he did, just give me at least one of his quotes from last analisies, i really doubt that you can :) I havn't been betting for about 8 month though, nice try though.
2016-04-11 14:31
Yes I don't get why he get hired for the Desk in Big Events > He doesn't know how to move in front of the Cam > He can't talk how he's supposed to > At least he knows the Game But being expert alone doesn't make you a good analyst for the Desk I recommend > YnK should be a Reporter that writes never talks NeVER
2016-04-11 13:50
wtf do you mean by those first two points?
2016-04-11 14:18
When you watch Hosts, analysts, Commentators they know how to stand, use there hands, move, sit they look natural in front of the Camera YnK he doesn't
2016-04-11 16:30
I know what you mean but you can see he is improving at that and it's not a big deal anyway

Why's that? It's only fair the deciders also get a day off, so they can prepare better for the play offs.

Oh good, I didn't want to work this week anyway

Cant wait for Faze vs Envy ! Its gone be sick if faze will win xD
2016-04-11 13:06
This is going to be a every interesting event as FaZe will be playing with Kio and they have not had much practice as a team and it is going to be interesting to see how he fits into the team. As many may know both Olofmeister and Guardian are suffering from wrist injuries this have made Fnatic pull out from competing at the event but Guardian has announced that he will be attending the event.
2016-04-11 13:08
Guardian doesn't play tho They have Standin
2016-04-11 13:38
Fnatic have announced that PlesseN will replace Olofmeister but they will not be playing at this event but they will be playing at the next PGL event. As for Guardian he will be competing at the event.
2016-04-11 13:42
Nope, starix replaced GuardiaN. Look at the news feed and read the latest update.
2016-04-11 13:50
Australia TotalEclipse 
Starix is playing for him...
2016-04-11 13:51
Fnatic doesn't play Guardian doesn't play Starix does play
2016-04-11 13:54
Yes Mirko I know that now.
2016-04-11 14:03
yes guardian will be at the event but he wont play starix is playing for him
2016-04-11 13:40

2016-04-11 13:20
CSGL? Are you serious?
2016-04-11 14:53
World Vidua 
He's not. In group D I'd put Tempo Storm above FaZe and who knows how well will EnVyUS perform - against G2 yesterday they've played really well. If VP gets out of this group it'll be a really tough road.
