DreamHack Montreal groups & schedule released

DreamHack has revealed the groups and the schedule for the upcoming Open tournament in Montreal.

2017-09-06 15:54
This is Canada, not USA. Probably can't get a visa in time. Also, if he's waiting on a US visa I'm pretty sure he can't travel while waiting on the decision or you'll be forced to restart the process and pay somewhere around a 1000$ again. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong though.

Fair enough, North didn't really beat any top team at ESL Pro League Finals, but they deserved second place at Dreamhack Masters.

+1 I have never seen such an unbalanced tournament. Calling North to drop 1 map only
2017-09-06 14:50
Maybe in playoffs vs imm or c9 but they can win all the maps too

vs IMT definitely but actually yeah they can win all the tournament without losing a single map
2017-09-06 16:55
They are going to choke as usual and C9 will beat them in the final
2017-09-06 15:02
They won't play on max power... Tournament with prize pool 100 000$ in 2k17. LUL

RIP gale force...
2017-09-06 14:53
Rip? After 6 months they finally got the chance of their lifes atm. Really proud of them and their effort to reach a lan event. That's what they want this hole year. Really hard to beat clg and north but definetly this is a win for argentina. Lez go boys!
2017-09-06 17:39
I think they were invited because other teams dropped out from the tournament due to visa issues.
2017-09-06 18:14
Yeah I know but they have been sacrificing a lot to be there and I think they deserve this. Maybe you don't understand because brasil is there playing and growing a lot since 2015 but this is a golden win to this guys and to the argentina scene.
2017-09-06 20:08
Yeah, I understand. Cheering for GF to represent SA well! GL Gale Force!!!!

2017-09-07 04:24
North vs Cloud9 finals, 2:1 or 2:0 North, mark my words
2017-09-07 07:01
Immortals always seems to beat them on lan though.. and kngv will be attending.. I'm leaning more towards North vs Immortals final.
2017-09-08 07:22
mbmb, who knows
2017-09-08 07:28
C9 vs Immortals should be really good this tournament.. Definitely looking forward to it in order to kind of grade the potential with this new C9 roster (Immortals is a great team to use as a benchmark), would love to see them play a bo3. If c9 can pull off a solid win vs them they could definitely have some top 5 potential with a bit more time to form team chemistry.
