With DreamHack Open Denver 2017 kicking off soon, we have prepared a viewer's guide which contains all the information you need to follow the event including the groups, schedule, and talent.
Eight squads will duke it out from October 20-22 at The National Western Complex in Denver, Colorado, USA. A total of $100,000 will be on offer, with the champions taking home half of that figure.
The teams have been divided into groups of four, and they will kick it off with a GSL group stage which will have best-of-one opening and winners' matches. The elimination and decider games will be played as best-of-three series.
The top two teams of both groups will advance to the playoffs, featuring a single-elimination, best-of-three format.
Group A will feature four teams who compete in North America while the other group will be headlined by three European squads. One of those squads is LDLC who replaced HellRaisers as Özgür "woxic" Eker experienced visa problems.
Below are the groups:
|Group A||Group B|
