The Swedish team NiP have been confirmed the last team invited to DreamHack Masters in the city of Las Vegas, NV, in February.
The Swedish side have just undergone the heavy blow of being eliminated in the Main Qualifier to the next Major, ELEAGUE’s million dollar tournament. Not all news are bad, though, as they will be at the MGM Grand in February to fight for the first DreamHack Masters title of the year.
