The organizers have announced the groups for DreamHack Masters Stockholm, which is set to begin on August 29.

Group A, featuring the current No. 1 team, Astralis, will see the Danish heavyweights take on their compatriots North, as well as TYLOO and Grayhound.

Natus Vincere headline Group B, where they're joined by NRG, NiP, and Ghost, while Group C features FaZe, fnatic, and two Danish teams in OpTic and Heroic. In Group D, mousesports will go up against MIBR, HellRaisers, and Gambit.

At their second event with olofmeister back, FaZe will take on fnatic, OpTic, and Heroic

The group stage will be played on the first three days of the competition, on August 29-31, with the opening matches featuring best-of-ones and the rest played in best-of-three series. With two teams advancing, a single-elimination playoffs bracket will follow on September 1-2 in front of live audience at the Ericsson Globe.

The groups of the $250,000 event are:

2018-08-16 20:23
Derby matches are always closer then they should be
2018-08-16 20:22
Either way, it's 4 danish Teams in the tournament, at least one should make it to the Semis :D Denish Finals would be great as well
2018-08-16 21:02
I cant tell you how many times i dreamed of a astralis-north grandfinal last year

Imagine full danish semis :D It’s possible as well cuz the groups won’t play each other again until semis, just a matter of OpTic and Heroic > FaZe and fnatic is too unlikely :(
2018-08-17 05:48

NiP with NRG and Navi... I think they will make it but it could be close
2018-08-16 19:42
They can do it. NaVi is known as slow starters, so they can lose bo1. Vs NRG is very competitive match.
2018-08-16 19:53
s1mple or electronic will carry them anyway into the play-offs. NRG is onliner-team and for sure the "heaviest" Team there..:D And RIP Ghost..:D
2018-08-16 21:03
We are talking about NiP here.
2018-08-17 09:13
Only hard match, in my opinion, is vs NaVi, so they SHOULD make it. But then again, its NiP so...

Wtf, he's not racist. I, as a fan, am not sure if they can make it. When you have a coach you just don't plug and play. It takes time. Even more because ma man yNk is trying to give them a new identity. Sure, they can do good. I hope they do. But it is more likely they don't. And that's fine. And there's a difference between boot camp and real tournaments. Also, mouz and HR are really sick teams. Let's see what happens.

C9 outdated and Liquid rejected I believe

Why does Astralis always pick up the worst teams in the group stage? Are you trying to push an "astralis era/age" to force your wits down?
2018-08-16 23:03
Seeding. It's a real thing.
2018-08-17 01:17
the seeding is based on esl's ranking system. ofc the no.1 seed gets the easiest opponents.
