Heroic, Space Soldiers, and compLexity have all been invited to attend DreamHack Open Austin, the Swedish tournament organizers have revealed.
The trio is joined by OpTic, another invitee, and by Fragsters and Rogue, who earned their spots through the European and North American closed qualifiers, with only two invite slots remaining for the $100,000 tournament set to take place from June 1-3.
Space Soldiers and Heroic will travel to Austin on the back of group stage exits at the ESL Pro League Season 7 Finals, with both teams attending the event with stand-ins. It is unclear at this point whether the Turkish side will be able to field Buğra "Calyx" Arkın, who sat out the event in Dallas due to visa issues.
This will be compLexity's first offline competition since recruiting Peter "stanislaw" Jarguz and Shahzeb "ShahZaM" Khan from OpTic last month. The North Americans recently qualified for DreamHack Open Summer and reclaimed a spot in the ESL Pro League spot via the relegation tournament, in Leicester, where the team fielded Alec "Slemmy" White and Andrew "Professor_Chaos" Heintz.
The team list for DreamHack Austin currently looks as follows:
