DreamHack Open Atlanta viewer's guide
With DreamHack Open Atlanta kicking off on Friday, HLTV.org presents a comprehensive viewer's guide for the North American event.
Hosted at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta from November 15-17, DreamHack Open Atlanta will feature eight contestants, who will face off for the lion's share of the $100,000 prize pool. Teams will aim to advance through a GSL group stage featuring a best-of-three format in the lower bracket, with top two from both groups ensuring participation in the single-elimination, best-of-three playoffs.
