Heroic, Space Soldiers & compLexity invited to DreamHack Open Austin

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.

stanislaw and co. finally get to see offline action in Austin

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:

calyx take 10year visa bro look instagram
2018-05-18 12:01
oh finally
2018-05-18 12:02
I love to see heroic, but I don't like then inviting a team without a full roster instead of an existing one. And just stop inviting Space Soldiers to events out site of europe. Its not fair to them or the teams left on the sideline.
2018-05-18 11:54
there's still 2 weeks before the event, maybe rubino can play by then
2018-05-18 11:55
Thats true. I forgot that they signed Friberg permanently.
2018-05-18 11:56
Cromen doing much better job than rubino
2018-05-18 13:49
I would remove es3tag and add cromen
2018-05-18 14:29
Es3tage >>>>>>>>>>> rubino
2018-05-18 18:35
"And just stop inviting Space Soldiers" ? its their first invite
2018-05-18 11:59
You are wrong there. Two times this month alone they have been forced to cancel events or play with a standin due to visa issues. Both IEM Sydney where they cancelled and then the current tournament in the states where cyx didnt get his visa is a wasted spot. They might have potential, but its not fair to other teams that they keep getting invited when they cant turn up, whatever the reasons. Visa issues suck, agreed, but there is nothing that wiill change that, especially not being forced to play with a standin and ruin team morale.
2018-05-18 12:03
dude but they are qualified for this events it was not invite
2018-05-18 12:03
Still, its a waste. Dont get me wrong, id love to see SS perform on a top level, but wasting spots when they wont get visas is not the right way about it.
2018-05-18 12:03
if you can qualify for some event its not waste
2018-05-18 12:03
Lets just agree to disagree. Personally I think SS should prioritize European events and ignore the others. It cant be healthy for them as a team to keep getting into these troubles.
2018-05-18 12:05
yes you are right about it but they should try it too , this time calyx has 10 year visas so they will go to austin with full roster
2018-05-18 12:05
Im not following? Why would he suddenly get a 10 year visa?`
2018-05-18 12:06
instagram.com/calyxcsgo/?hl=tr For the USA events Check his instagram story
2018-05-18 12:07

2018-05-18 12:11
No one just gets 10 years visa to the states post 9/11... especially one from turkey, no offense meant, but thats just their policy. Anyway, i cant find the picture on instagram.
2018-05-18 12:12
Dude lmao , all of Space soldiers players has 10 year visas for USA from ESEA Global Challenge 26 except Calyx now he has too
2018-05-18 12:14

2018-05-18 17:32
Hell ya I am looking forward to seeing Complexity on LAN, and seeing more of Fragsters after they did good at the 1 LAN, and seeing more of Optic as well. So far this should be a fun LAN to see where some of the up and coming teams are at.
