DH Open Austin groups, schedule out

May 3rd, 2016 03:38

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.

Tempo Storm will compete in Group B of DreamHack Open Austin

DreamHack have now announced the official groups and schedule for the event, with the groups found below:

Group A Group B
Brazil Luminosity Brazil Tempo Storm
United States CLG United States Liquid
United States Cloud9 United States Selfless
United States Splyce United States NRG

The schedule for the event meanwhile is meanwhile spread out over three days of weekend action, with the first day of group stage action featuring best-of-one opening and winners' matches but the next day utilising only best-of-three matches, even in the elimination games.

The top two teams from each group will then advance to single elimination, best-of-three playoffs on the final day. The schedule can be found below:

21:40 Show Start

LG on LAN is way better than LG online anyways
2016-05-03 03:50
But obviously the prize is 100,000$ i dont think that LG might be showing all their tactics .For me they are going to play with chill and let another teams win probaply tempo or CLG
2016-05-03 09:58
Lol no. Whats the point to just give away a tournament. They are going to play at their best like everyone else

2016-05-03 13:35
well there's money on the linea and LG perform better when money is placed so LG all the way.
2016-05-03 23:33
Funny how the absolute worst round of CS I've seen this week, probably this month, and maybe ever this year was 2 EU teams playing each other. It was Hellraisers VS SK on overpass round 20 or something like that. Both teams could not have played the situation much worse if they tried.

You should watch more NA EPL then.
2016-05-03 08:17
2016-05-03 10:08
How convenient that you use tier 3 teams like SK and HR as an example of EU CS
2016-05-03 11:11
They are top 12 or so EU teams. I guess you are saying there are only like 5 decent teams in the world since only a handful of EU teams are a lot better than them?
2016-05-03 12:46
if youre looking at the hltv ranking you should probably leave the discussion threads and just Play your silver matchmaking to be honest.oh and btw youtube.com/watch?v=2_LnPzRtv3Q
2016-05-03 13:29
Not going strictly off of them, but they are pretty close and better than rankings provided anywhere else. Thorin's rankings are trash and don't go past 10 anyway. I guess there used to be esl rankings, but I haven't checked them in a while. I mostly just go off my own personal opinion and imo SK and HR are around 9-16 EU. You have the ESL pro league teams, Gambit, godsent, MK, and HR are the top 16 EU teams and there I don't see how you could really dispute that. I would say MK and F3 are definitely a bit worse than SK and HR and then it becomes kind of a toss up so maybe they are only top 14, but they are still somewhere around there.
2016-05-03 13:43
4 teams from the major, 1 semi, 1 quarter, 1 group, and the grand champ os not good cs? Its better then cevo gfinity

2016-05-03 10:02
Right column teams will win all matches except C9 may upset CLG. Depends if Tarik and Cutler actually do something and help JDM
2016-05-03 03:41
what?? lool tariks been there best player by far lately
2016-05-03 04:06
If CLG loses it's mostly because tarik is not stepping up. He's their key player and he has to have impact. Not like he's doing bad, he just has to be consistent.

Brazil Desvain 
iBP tourney was online and meaningless. Was that a 15k prize pool or something? This is LAN.
2016-05-03 03:55
think he's talking about the lan ibp tournament not the recent online one.
2016-05-03 04:18
True, but C9 still had Sean at that point, now they just look lost. Think it was 100k or something like that since C9 got 65k for first.

ez clg
2016-05-03 06:08
As much as I want to see an NA team in the finals, I think the Brazilians are just too much for them to handle. LG, obviously nothing needs to be said. With Tempo, their teamplay and game sense are better than any of the NA teams. On top of that, Tempo has a superior map pool. If there is an upset, CLG has the best chance in my opinion.
2016-05-03 06:16
We haven't seen the new liquid on lan so far, would be very happy to see them winning this tournament.
2016-05-03 13:29
