The team list for the event taking place in Atlanta is now complete as six squads have been invited.

Taking place from July 21-23, DreamHack Open Atlanta will feature eight teams. Two of those teams were determined in qualifiers as Binary Dragons earned the European spot while Misfits claimed the North American one.

DreamHack have now revealed that NRG, Renegades, Heroic, HellRaisers, EnVyUs and GODSENT received invites to attend the $100,000 tournament where the winner will take home $50,000.

EnVyUs will be in Atlanta

The tournament will start with a group stage using the GSL format. The opening and winners' matches will be best-of-ones while the elimination and decider games will be played as best-of-threes.

The top two squads from each group will advance to the single elimination, best-of-three playoff where the victors will be decided. Here are all the teams that will be competing in Atlanta in a week's time:

Serbia Binary Dragons United States Misfits Australia Renegades France EnVyUs
Europe HellRaisers United States NRG Sweden GODSENT Denmark Heroic

Logic of invites??? WTF
2017-07-13 17:42
to be fair, misfits got invited to valencia nrg qualified misfits qualified for atlanta nrg invited
2017-07-13 18:48
misfits got invited to valencia but didn't lose in the qualifiers, it's ridiculous that nrg lost in the qualifiers and still get invited over the team they lost to.....
2017-07-13 23:35
i understand ur point but statistically nrg r better than miami flamigos not trying to defend nrg trust me i would of preferred so many other NA teams but they just got their new 5th, AnJ. yo amo mf, perro NRG son mejors if u speak spanish^^
2017-07-14 05:49
I understand, and I also even understand if NRG got invited because they are higher ranked than flamingos, but having had those qualifiers just make this invite look weird..
2017-07-14 13:50
yes it indeed does
2017-07-14 21:30

Yeah unfortunately dreamhack doesn't care about team performances, they only look for teams who got an organization with tons of money.
