DreamHack to bring back Dust2 after DH Summer qualifiers
The tournament organizer revealed that Cobblestone will see some action before the iconic Dust2 replaces it in the map pool.
According to DreamHack's announcement, the qualification cycle for DreamHack Open Summer will be the final one in which we will see Cobblestone being used.
Moving forward, all DreamHack qualifiers and LAN events will feature the new, Dust2-included map pool. The new map poll will first be in action online in the DreamHack Open Valencia qualifiers, and offline at DreamHack Open Tours—which will take place on May 19-21.
With this, DreamHack have aligned themselves with the likes of ESL, who announced that Dust2 will be used at IEM Sydney and the ESL Pro League Finals, and ESEA, who removed Cobblestone from the map pool for at MDL Global Challenge LAN.
Due to recent map pool changes from Valve the maps used for the Valencia and Summer Qualifiers will differ:— DreamHack Counter-Strike (@DreamHackCSGO) April 26, 2018
