DreamHack reveals Winter qualifier invites

DreamHack has revealed the invite list for the closed qualifiers for the Winter event.

With six spots already filled through invites, the final two places in DreamHack Winter's $100,000 CS:GO tournament will be determined by online qualifiers, held this weekend in Europe and North America.

In both regions, the qualifying process will begin with an open bracket, which will see the top eight teams advance to a closed stage, joining eight invited sites in a single-elimination, best-of-three tournament.

Space Soldiers will compete for a spot at DreamHack Winter

The European qualifier will be headlined by Space Soldiers, the No.19 team in the world and the winner of the recent Europe Minor Championship, and by FlipSid3, who will field loanee Denis "seized" Kostin. In North America, all eyes will be on current No.26 team Luminosity, who will be looking to bounce back from a group stage exit at the Americas Minor.

Below you can find the invite list for the two closed qualifiers, which will take place on Sunday:

Europe North America
Turkey Space Soldiers Brazil Luminosity
Europe LDLC Canada Rise Nation
Poland AGO United States Complexity
Russia Vega Squadron Brazil Tempo Storm
Russia FlipSid3 Canada FRENCH CANADIANS
Europe HellRaisers United States Ghost
Poland Kinguin United States Splyce
Germany Seed United States Rogue

DreamHack Winter will run from December 1-3 in Jönköping, Sweden, with the likes of Natus Vincere, Gambit and fnatic among the teams invited so far by the event organisers.

Are you seriously that intelligent? Tourney organizers asks org owners before they invite. C9 can't play due to IBP masters, and Big does some important shit as well most likely ;) Besides why to come to tourney you will get rekt at.

They're in Brasil
2017-11-10 02:31
So? Luminosity and Tempo Storm participate too
2017-11-10 14:37
Because they're not in Brazil. Immortals went to Brazil for WESG
2017-11-10 15:19
You think that's the reason for not receiving an invite?
2017-11-10 16:13
Don't know. But Gale didn't receive an invite because they're in Argentina aswell
2017-11-10 17:01
Gale isn't really on the same level.
2017-11-10 17:41
I mean what's the point in invite them if they're not able to play?

You can have all tier 1-2 teams but with only a $100k prize pool its not gonna be a tier 1-2 event either way
