Heroic confirmed at DreamHack Open Rotterdam

Heroic have accepted an invitation to compete at Dreamhack Open Rotterdam, the event's organisers have announced.

The announcement takes the team count for the event to five, with Heroic joining Besiktas, who earned a spot through winning the DreamHack Showdown in Valencia, and the previously-invited trio of AVANGAR, DreamEaters and CR4ZY on the list of participants.

Heroic recently revamped their squad by signing Johannes "⁠b0RUP⁠" Borup from Tricked and bringing back Marco "⁠Snappi⁠" Pfeiffer. After almost two months of inactivity, the team returned to action on Wednesday, in the closed qualifier for DreamHack Masters Malmö and in the ECS Season 7 Pinnacle Cup, beating Spirit and Windigo.

Heroic will travel to Rotterdam next month

DreamHack Open Rotterdam will take place from October 18-20 at Rotterdam Ahoy, with $100,000 on the line. There is now just one invite left to announce, with the final two spots going to the winners of the Benelux and European online qualifiers.

The team list for DreamHack Open Rotterdam currently looks as follows:

You know, it'll be a rather spicy event for HLTV users. Whether Besiktas win or Lose, the HLTV users are gonna have a field day with that info.
2019-09-13 09:23
This info is also readily available everywhere where this tournament has been discussed, idk how people think that besiktas went through actual qualies to get into this tourney
2019-09-13 10:14
It's something new and I think it's right. They should take the opportunity to show themselves in a t2 environment.
2019-09-13 06:59
Taking a spot just for being women is wrong when the talent levels aren't comparable.
2019-09-13 10:14
Well, actually they beat all the other female teams, so maybe we just have to wait what they gonna deliver!
2019-09-14 18:50
At least you're living up to your name with that claim
2019-09-14 19:18
That's why I am here. Have a nice evening!

Tier 3 event
2019-09-12 15:32
There's no real reason why they should get demolished, but Besiktas are going to get slapped and then cry/exclaim how they should be proud of themselves.
2019-09-12 15:56
Then promising they'll come back stronger and never happen
