G2 invited to DreamHack Masters Malmö

G2 will compete at DreamHack Masters Malmö after accepting a direct invitation from the organizers.

The French side will be joining a stacked competition in Malmö, becoming the seventh top-ten team confirmed at the tournament, featuring the likes of Liquid, Vitality, Astralis, and ENCE thus far.

G2 have risen up the ranks in the last two months, placing fifth-sixth at the last DreamHack Masters stop in Dallas and picking up an impressive runners-up finish at ESL Pro League Season 9 Finals, although most recently they went out in groups at IEM Chicago.

G2 will make their second DreamHack Masters appearance in a row

Before the Swedish tournament comes along, Richard "⁠shox⁠" Papillon & co. will also compete at the StarLadder Major and at ESL One New York, with the latter event ending just two days before the kick-off of DreamHack Masters Malmö.

The team list for the $250,000 event taking place on October 1-6 currently features the following 10 teams, with two more spots being reserved for invites and the rest filled via qualifiers:

But is is in Sweden after all. Expect all good Nordic teams to Join. Probably even Ancient, Heroic and North as Well.. No matter How Big of a joke that Sounds like.
2019-07-30 19:44
Yes, I know. I mean Ancient won't join, but Heroic and North might. North definitely actually. But still I'm just saying that Crazy is better than NiP and Fnatic rn and that's not even a question.

Im pretty sure NiP beat heroic in a bo3 last time they met lol
2019-08-23 11:53
I hope cr4zy gets invited and gets matched up against fnatic so they can wipe the floor with them this time.
2019-07-30 22:29
Fnatic to wipe Cr4zy? lul
2019-07-31 00:34
Cr4zy beats Fnatic in one BO3 in possibly their worst form in years and thinks they’re automatically better. You yourself know it’s inevitable if they also get rid of Twist or Xizt. If anything as of now though they’re about even, the amount of mistakes they made against Cr4zy was insane and they had plenty of opportunities for it to be a 2-0 in favor of Fnatic. Just facts. I love Cr4zy’s roster and their potential and I don’t doubt them, but just realistically speaking. Can’t wait to see them play in the future, should be exciting matches and hopefully both are in great form and maybe new roster for Fnatic?
2019-08-01 00:37
Pff nip Will eat like a pussy
2019-07-31 04:32
Facts, if they play on a good day. Bad day they struggle against absolute shit teams. Hopefully, and sadly, with Get_Right out this can change.
2019-08-01 00:43
I hope that getright has to step up on a big tournaments like a major. He Need to show hes best, if they success with major they Will keep him if not, tbh he Will be kicked

with only 2 remaining invitational spots left, it should go to Faze and Na'Vi why would NRG and NiP be invited ? Those spots should have gone to Mouz and an asian Team e.g Tyloo.
