DreamHack Open Leipzig invites unveiled

DreamHack has announced all four invited teams for their upcoming Open circuit event held in Leipzig.

DreamHack Open Sevilla champions North, who earlier on Tuesday announced the renewal of Markus "Kjaerbye" Kjærbye's contract, Virtus.pro, Renegades and BIG have all received direct invites to participate at the German event, which will be held from January 24-26.

The four sides join Sprout on the list of participants for the event, with the German team having secured a spot after winning the ESL Meisterschaft Winter Finals. This leaves just three vacant slots, to be filled via the European and North American regional qualifiers, scheduled for January 12.

Virtus.pro will attend their second LAN event under new colours

The $100,000 event will be held at the Leipziger Messe and will feature the traditional DreamHack Open format, with the eight teams split into two double-elimination groups, which will be followed by a single-elimination bracket.

Below is an updated participants' list for DreamHack Open Leipzig 2020:

Yes, they announced it earlier today, its 1000% better than the old one. The new one looks more "viking" style i guess you can say. twitter.com/TheNorthIsHere/status/121450..
2020-01-07 21:39
Im used to logo downgrades (nrg,vp,comp,eg,heroic) so its about time someone made an improved one.

Yeah. Only thing that they should have done with the new one is having it in the same position as the old one, they "reversed" the new one for some reason.

NA deserves 0 spots There could've been an oceanic qualifier with actual good teams participating instead
2020-01-08 06:05
Once again disrespectful, also your region has produced only a few good talents, And 1 constant team 100 Thieves currently. As for NA are country and region is massive so we have tons of teams and talent that are spread out, I think they should have more of a chance to show themselves at least 2 spots but that can’t change now.

lul you think na has "talent" you have liquid and eg that's it. The next best team is c9 which is only good cause the south african players carry. na has had more than enough chances to prove themselves but they fail everytime, atleast australian teams are good lul cry more na fanboy
2020-01-09 05:59
Of course we have talent, we have won many tournaments and a major recently, and we do have tons of talent also if you look at the recent matches with the new c9 team the NA players are not being carried for the South Africans there pretty back and forth, and the fail every time thing tell that to the trophies we have but Australia as I have said only has 1 constant team the other team now renegades lingers around being invited so wait for them also you coming at me saying (cry more NA fanboy) not crying I’m having a discussion clearly what I said upset you for you to come at me like that which no facts or reason step your game up.
