Kinguin, Imperial confirmed at DreamHack Montreal

August 11th, 2018 21:20

Kinguin and Imperial have been invited to compete at DreamHack Montreal, the event's organisers have revealed.

With this announcement, the team list for the Canadian event now features seven teams, which means that there is just one invite left to be announced.

Kinguin follow in the footsteps of fellow Polish side AGO, who were announced by DreamHack on Friday. Wiktor "TaZ" Wojtas's side recently attended the Europe Minor, where they went out in the group stage following defeats to Sprout and Red Reserve.

Kinguin will attend the DreamHack event in Canada next month

This will be Imperial's first LAN event since revamping their roster with the additions of Ali "hAdji" Haïnouss and Eimantas "pounh" Lazickas. The DreamHack Open Summer champions took part in the recent European closed qualifier for StarSeries i-League Season 6, losing to Fragsters 1-2 in the final.

DreamHack Open Montreal will take place from September 7-8 at the Olympic Stadium, with a $100,000 prize pool on the line. The team list for the event currently looks as follows:
