Official groups and a schedule for the DreamHack ZOWIE Open stop in Austin, Texas have been released.
Taking place from May 6-8, DreamHack ZOWIE Open Austin will feature eight teams battling for $100,000 in prize money at the Austin Convention Center, in what is DreamHack's first ever tournament in North America.
Although European teams were originally slated to be invited, a busy event schedule ultimately changed the facts on the ground and the $100,000 event is now a North American and Brazilian brawl.
