DreamHack Masters playoff bracket revealed

After three days of intense group stage action in Stockholm, the playoff brackets for DreamHack Masters have been drawn.

The four group winners, North, NiP, FaZe, and MIBR earned their spots in the playoffs yesterday, and have now been joined by the second-placed teams, Astralis, Natus Vincere, and will be joined by the winners of Heroic vs. OpTic and mousesports vs. HellRaisers after the last two matches of the day.

FaZe have their eye on the Intel Grand Slam prize

North, who upset Astralis in the Group A winners' match will face #2 in the rankings Natus Vincere, while MIBR and Astralis will go face-to-face in one of the hottest quarter-finals of the tournament. The winners of the last two decider matches today featuring HellRaisers vs. mousesports and OpTic vs. Heroic will go on to face FaZe and NiP, respectively.

The match-ups are:

Sweden NiP vs. Denmark OpTic/Denmark Heroic
Brazil MIBR vs. Denmark Astralis
Europe FaZe vs. Other HellRaisers/Europe mousesports
Denmark North vs. Ukraine Natus Vincere

The quarter-finals will kick off tomorrow at 10:00, and will be played out through the day before Sunday's semi-finals and final, from which a new DreamHack Masters champion will emerge.

They won their last tournament by completely avoiding all the teams that can beat them. They only had to beat Cloud9, Mousesports and Liquid x2. It's about time they faced some tough opponents.

If their player got back at their A games, even MiBR with montrous Coldzera will find it difficult to defeat them, but if Astralis player cant get their performance back, it will likely that the brazillian will win it 2-0. Map prediction : Dust 2, Inferno and Overpass/Cache

But as i said, at this event they get the taste of their own medicine by North, a god damn MSLul' team, i though it will be ez 2-0 but no it's 1-2, and yes i aggree with those people that saying "MSL calls is right this time" etc, but even with that, Astralis look shaky af like they did in IEM Sidney final, get caught in the open, bad decision, predictable movement. If they didnt fix this problem, MiBR will get a 2-0 win againts Astralis,

Faze is going to win the grand slam if they're on point. Mibr is going to beat Astralis if they're on point. Na`vi is going to beat North if they're on point. Do you see where I'm going with this?
2018-08-31 17:34
No I'm not. You're basically saying every team can win against any team, if they are just on point. I'm saying that 'ASTRALIS' can win against any team if they are just on point.

2018-09-01 12:28
I think 2018 Astralis is perhaps the best team I've ever seen. But let's get out facts straight: if this dreamhack is a parameter, MIBR will crush Astralis completely. So don't say the astralis we've seen thus far is going to 2-0 MIBR we've seen thus far.
2018-08-31 22:48
Ast looks off and mibr is super consistent so far with coldzera on top 2-1 mibr

Lol makes sense was surprised by a Euro flag supporting MiBR. And yeah my heroic pick was kind of a wild guess. They looked good against FaZe and with NiP being so spotty I thought they might be able to edge something out
2018-09-01 16:16
