Ex-dig, Na`Vi, and SK to DH Masters

The DreamHack Masters pool is filling out with the inclusion of the team formerly known as dignitas, the CIS combine of Natus Vincere, and SK Gaming.

These are the 5th, 6th, and 7th teams invited for the first DreamHack Masters of next year, which will take place in Las Vegas, NV. Before them, Virtus.pro, Cloud9, Astralis, and OpTic were confirmed. Also confirmed via the Asian qualifier is the Chinese team TYLOO.

SK will be in Las Vegas for the $450,000 DH Masters

One more team is scheduled to be given an invite tomorrow, while seven spots will be awarded to the winners of the American and European qualifiers to fill the remainder of the 16 spots for the tournament.

Taking place February 15-19 in the Sin City of Las Vegas, NV, the upcoming DreamHack Masters will have $450,000 on the line. The event will be held at the MGM Grand with the group stages being played out on the casino floor before the action continues in the Grand Garden Arena for the playoffs.

2016-12-20 19:10
I hate when tournaments only have 8 teams in them. Makes for a more boring tournament when you have teams winning 2 matches and immediately being in the semi finals. edit: has 16 teams, thanks for showing me that it wasn't only an 8 team tournament
2016-12-20 19:13
Good thing this tournament has 16 teams
2016-12-20 19:12
I should have actually read the article, thanks for pointing out my ignorance there.
2016-12-20 19:12
that's why you read the whole article
2016-12-20 19:12
You know that is gonna be 16 teams? 8 invites and 8 qualified teams.
2016-12-20 19:14

c9 invite is a joke so is NAVI done nothing lately. tyloo qualified ofc but another wasted spot they are simply too bad.
2016-12-20 20:09
you make zero sense firstly cloud9 and optic are invited so if you remove Asian slot for tyloo then youre giving 4 more slots to NA teams no way the 4-6th NA teams are better than TyLoo when TyLoo already beat cloud9
2016-12-21 03:50

we dont care if you watch it or not hungarian kid fag
2016-12-21 18:38
stfu gipsy country dont talk shit about glorious great hungaria what the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.

If NiP is not invited, that probably because NiP declined it. It is ridiculous if DH doesn't invite the previous winner.
