DreamHack has announced the group and bracket distributions of all divisions of the Masters Spring event.
DreamHack Masters Spring will be held in four regions, Europe, North America, Asia, and Oceania, with a total of 32 teams participating in the $300,000 event from May 19-June 7.
In the European division, the 16 participating teams have been distributed into four best-of-three round-robin groups, from which the winners will move on to the upper bracket semi-finals and second to third-placed teams to the first round of the lower bracket.
