DreamHack Winter qualifiers announced

October 10th, 2017 18:18

DreamHack has revealed the first details about the qualifying process for its Winter event.

This year's DreamHack event season will come to a close with the traditional Winter stop, in Jönköping, running from December 1-3, with $100,000 at stake.

Six of the eight tournament spots will be filled through invites, while the remaining two places will be determined by online qualifiers, hosted in Europe and in North America.

Gambit won the 2016 edition of DreamHack Winter

In both regions, the qualifying process will begin with an open bracket, featuring up to 512 teams, with the top eight teams progressing to the closed qualifier, in which they will be joined by eight invited sides in a single-elimination, best-of-three knockout stage.

Teams can sign up for the open qualifiers, scheduled for November 11, by logging in on ESEA's website and opening a support ticket with the name "Winter EU" or "Winter NA" as the ticket subject, depending on the region, and "Events" as the ticket type. 

The following information must be included in the ticket:

Team Name:


Qualifier name: (Use Winter EU or Winter NA in the name)
