Luminosity & Gale Force invited to DreamHack Montreal

DreamHack has announced that Gale Force and Luminosity have earned the final invites to compete at its upcoming event in Montreal.

Along with unveiling the last two invitees, DreamHack has revealed that European qualifier winners Space Soldiers have been forced to relinquish their spot in the tournament due to visa issues as the Canadian embassy in Turkey is closed for holidays.

Replacing the Turkish team will be Kinguin, who finished third-fourth in the qualifier, as HellRaisers, who had lost to Space Soldiers in the final, also could not get visas to enter Canada.

SHOOWTiME & co to attend DreamHack Montreal

This will be the second DreamHack event of the year for Luminosity, who recently signed Marcelo "⁠chelo⁠" Cespedes and Gabriel "⁠NEKIZ⁠" Schenato from ex-paiN, after also competing in Austin, where they finished 7th-8th. The event will also mark the debut for Jonathan "⁠JonY BoY⁠" Muñoz's team under Gale Force after moving from the Miami Flamingos at the start of August.

DreamHack Montreal will take place from September 8-10, with a total of $100,000 up for grabs. The final team list for the event is the following:

United States Cloud9 Brazil Immortals
Denmark North United States CLG
Brazil Luminosity United States Complexity
Poland Kinguin Argentina Gale Force

Too much negative comments for GF. On TWC 2016 in Serbia, Argentina had a similar roster than now (3 same players) and was second place loosing 2-1 with Turkey (favourites), winning to Sweden and Dinamarca (for example). Now they have a better roster and are really growing a lot. Obviously that they are not favourite and probably will not win, but why not think that Gale Force can make a good participation ?
