DreamHack announce Tours invites

DreamHack have announced all six teams directly invited to DreamHack Open Tours, completing the participants' list of the $100,000 tournament.

The list of invitees is headlined by mousesports, whose new lineup have climbed the ranks after impressing in their first two showings, making it to ESL Pro League Season 9 Finals and placing 5th-6th at IEM Sydney last weekend.

The organizers have also extended an invitation to two local sides, G2 and the former 3DMAX side FrenchFrogs, who will be representing their home country alongside Instinct, who advanced to the main event via the French qualifier.

mousesports will be in action in Tours

The remaining three teams directly invited to the $100,000 event are AVANGAR, Valiance, and Ghost, with Windigo rounding out the team list after topping the European qualifier in early April.

The team list of DreamHack Open Tours, which will take place on May 17-19, looks as follows:

Nice invites!

tbf Imperial last year got invited to summer and qualified to some other one. They bombed out of groups in the one they qualified for and then won the one which they got invited to, so idk chief.

Most of them are solid tier 3 teams. This is gonna be entertaining for sure.
2019-05-06 17:09
G2 Mouse Valliance & Windigo have a similar level right now imo

AVANGAR could potentially show up too. idk what ghost is doing
2019-05-06 17:19
GRAND FINALS will be Mouz vs. Avangar
2019-05-06 18:21
Avangar haven't been really good recently They're probably not good enough to beat Mouse, Valliance, G2 or Windigo They've been winning at lower tiers, but never at this one
2019-05-06 21:53
I believe they can outperform G2 and Windigo if the need be and Valiance will be a good matchup for them and I dont see them winning against Mouz but still if they manage to beat 3 out of those 4 they will play the Finals and bcoz they are winning on lower tiers they might have a better chance on going thru to the finals at this one

AVANGAR has a stand-in. Unless they show up with their Main Player, I doubt they'll go deep in the tournament. It could be Valiance/G2 vs Mouz
2019-05-07 14:05
I have lost all of my faith in G2 they never manage to perform well at all even if they had performed like the best team in the whole tournament they had bomb out of the Playoffs so not expecting G2 to go all the way though there is a possibilty that Valiance might go thru to the Grand Finals

2019-05-07 17:24
G2 and mouz are way ahead than windigo and valiance right now. But still valiance avangar ghost and windigo are fucking great invites for DH tours , probably the best one since it's alive. But there will be nobody in the crowd
2019-05-06 18:02
AVANGAR is the best team out there lol.
2019-05-06 18:17
LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOO this is not even the 3rd team here

2019-05-06 18:53
These usually are the best tourneys. There is a very clear gap between all the top teams but the t2 or 3 teams are so fuggin competitive.

Would really like to see this revitalised G2 vs the new young, yet experienced mousesports in BO3. Both have similar strengths but entirely different weaknesses. Both will be in the top 7 by the end of this year.

Vitality too good for this kind of events they have cs summit
2019-05-06 18:03
nah dont think you are just fanboy cuz this you think? who good in vitality? lol
2019-05-06 18:22
Besides zywoo , they're all inconsistent but can all carry on one game ,that's why they all have average rating. NBK and apEX have great ratings tho , rpk and ALEX are really inconsistent. But they play very good as a team , with good trades and that's why they win. ZywOo isn't especially carrying , he is just always at the top level , but if he has an off game it's not dead for vitality.
2019-05-06 18:27
ok but i think They do not deserve to be there cuz they are people shit . They think they're the best. Going down on other teams and other players. my opinion they are not really go players only zywOo in online. and if you are see full tournaments dont want them
2019-05-06 18:38
On what your comment is based ? They only tell what they think and i agree with them about mouz invite in ESL one cologne , besides that i see nothing that they said about an other team. And in NBK's tweet it clearly says "nothing against mouz"

It's confirmed by nbk tweet that they were invited but refused because they have to much match to prepare / play
2019-05-06 18:45
And if you are see they got invited to summit and dallas , only cologne didn't want them , but they will qualify and show to ESL that they were the right choice to invite and not mouz , tell me what did mouz achieve or which good team they beat to be invited and invited of esl are based on ranking and vitality are ahead of them on all rankings
2019-05-06 18:47
Idk why everyone hates vitality , there is no fucking reason
2019-05-06 18:47
because nbk you are will see The French crowd will curse Mouz and is not first time nbk do shits like this try to kick shox? like a Conflict between g2 and shox have full reason dude

No it’s OK we all know vitality are literally just one player, vitality wasn’t invited because the three other French team see you’re already better than vitality. As the one guy said they play team counterstrike
2019-05-06 18:24
You clearly don't watch vit's game. They have a great teamplay and not hunting for stats and highlights. Just doing their job and since zywoo is an incredible player he is doing what NBK and apex do constantly
2019-05-06 18:29

Not one guy going +45 in a best-of-three series while the rest of the team goes maybe like +2 +1. And of course Alex going -20
2019-05-06 18:25
Yeah but if you look map by map , so you can see NBK at the top on a map and at the bottom on another , same for apex while you can see ZywOo always in positive but not especially carrying.

When I watch vitality they win and lose because of ONE players performance... Alex is a bot beyond bots and apex is the only other one who can do some fragging dmg. Besides that rpk pretty trash and nbk needs to be doing a hell of a lot more as igl if Vitality want to be top 5

2019-05-06 17:24

Well yeah that’s a point, but it also shows g2s inconsistency. And mouz should be much more consistent with their lineup. You’ll never know how they’re gonna play.
2019-05-06 17:34
It's a single online match against a new promising optic, not the more consistant indeed but let them few weeks, same to Mouse, new team we can't know if they'll be consistent or not. DH Dallas will be the real test for them imo.
2019-05-06 17:38
When u have a team without officials match it's normal that they are inconsistent , especially online. In LAN it's not the same

Actually a really good invite list for Dreamhack, especially for an Open. Only two non-competitive teams I see here are Instinct and ex-3D but they are there as local teams so it’s understandable. Excited to watch it!

Why ? Lmao he will play better events
2019-05-06 18:08
like ESL Cologne LUL
2019-05-06 19:20
He surely declined the event
2019-05-06 18:23
A reason more why he should shut up about invites.

They declined the event because they have too much match to prepare / play actually
2019-05-06 18:46
So they declined it cuz they are bad.

maybe vitality shouldve been on the qualifier then. also cs summit starts a few days after dh and maybe they didnt want to rush between 2 events

nice, ghost avangar or mouz is gonna win
2019-05-06 19:50
I can see why they wouldn't invite Vitality while inviting G2, they only invite the teams that are bad.

I can give you 100% that they tried to invite Vitality, but they refused cuz they will be praccing for cs_summit at that time

Actually its gonna be a really sick, maybe its not tier 1 but I always prefer to watch like Avangar vs Valiance match where two teams who worth each other play than for example Astralis vs North when there's one sided stomp, only FrenchDogs and Instict will be stomped rest of the team will be fighting and it will be fun to watch, cant wait for it! solid tier 1,5 - tier 2 tournament!!!!
2019-05-06 20:34
Valience: Did not qualify for the event DH: No problem we will just invite them and make the valience-windigo game completely unneccesery
2019-05-06 21:37
Ez for chrisj
2019-05-06 23:09
Whelp, first lan win for mouz
2019-05-06 23:43
I really want mouz to win this, they look like such a damn promising team
2019-05-07 01:42
lmao how sad of mouz to have to play in a tier 2 tournament
2019-05-07 02:39
Why not? They need practice in lan environment, it's in france, so no heavy travel, they can get confidence, perfect tournament for them
2019-05-07 15:02
best dreamhack open in a long time.
