Groups for DH Summer released
DreamHack has announced the groups and schedule for the upcoming ZOWIE Open stop, in Jönköping.
Eight top Counter-Strike teams from all over the world will be attending DreamHack Summer, from June 18-20, to compete for the bulk of a $100,000 prize pool in the event's ZOWIE Open tournament.
The competition will see the eight teams split into two double-elimination groups of four teams, with the elimination and the decider matches using a best-of-three format.
Astralis will take on ENCE in the first round
The top two teams from each group will then advance to the best-of-three, single-elimination playoffs, which will crown the third ZOWIE Open champion of the year, after Natus Vincere and Luminosity won the stops in Leipzig and Austin, respectively.
