DreamHack Open Austin viewer's guide

DreamHack Open Austin is just around the corner, so we have prepared a viewer's guide with all the relevant information about this $100,000 competition.

Running from Friday through Sunday at the Austin Convention Center, the DreamHack event will feature eight teams, six invited and two determined by online qualifiers held in Europe and North America.

The tournament will begin with a double-elimination group stage, featuring best-of-three elimination and decider matches, followed by the single-elimination playoffs.

Fragsters will open up the action against eUnited

The event will mark Ricardo "Rickeh" Mulholland's debut for Rogue after he was signed to replace Anthony "gMd" Guimond on the roster. Heroic, who will continue to field Jorgen "cromen" Robertsen as a stand-in, are the highest-ranked team in attendance (17th), followed by Space Soldiers (18th) and the new OpTic line-up (22nd).
