DreamHack Showdown Summer on-air team announced

The on-air broadcast lineup for the all-women event has been revealed by DreamHack, with Frankie "⁠Frankie⁠" Ward at the helm as the host.

DreamHack Showdown Summer will feature two tournaments in Europe and North America from July 17-19 and July 24-26, respectively, with $25,000 on offer in both regions.

The two competitions will utilise a double-elimination bracket in which four qualified teams will battle it out in the opening round, with two invited teams seeded directly into the second round.

The online event features several familiar faces, including Frankie, Christine "⁠potter⁠" Chi, Jason "⁠moses⁠" O'Toole and Sudhen "⁠Bleh⁠" Wahengbam, and will see the return of Lauren "Pansy" Scott, who has not been active on the mic in CS:GO since DreamHack Showdown Valencia in 2019.

The full talent lineup looks as follows:

United Kingdom Frankie "⁠Frankie⁠" Ward
United States Christine "⁠potter⁠" Chi

This will be interesting. Tbh Originem and SKADE could win EU And Dignitas - CLG will be in the final i think.
2020-07-10 19:45
Galaxy Racer had a pretty good performance in spring. They played 1:2 vs Originem in final. I wouldnt count them out.
2020-07-10 22:32
Ah yeah, i didnt see that Vilga is in that team, shes pretty good.

Yo le noob, There was an Open Qualifier for this tournament (not featured on hltv) and the teams that Cale out have players that haven't played a single hltv-featured match. I guess admins haven't had time to create a profile for them.

When do these female teams start practicing? Every time I try watching it they say they practiced but do basic mistakes any random level 10 face it player does not. This has been going on for years..

2020-07-11 10:29
This is disgrace. Female CSGO is such a shame. Half of the teams doesn't have even roster on HLTV, what is this? I don't mind level of competition (you usually watch this for the lulz anyway). This is probably due to lack of all female competitions as well, we should see them more often in future, doesn't matter if they are significantly smaller than proper CSGO events. I would really like to see one good female player in "proper" men's team (one whole good - like T2 - team is utopia, sadly). That would be awesome to see girl rekki'n men players in proper CSGO matches, that would be megastar in no time. I am kind of surprised non of these girls aimed towards that.
2020-07-11 11:01
I thought women weren't able to play in men teams, just like regular sports, but then here in Brazil we have mixed leagues but no mixed teams
2020-07-11 13:05
I am not sure if it is allowed, but it would be cool to see. Obviously i would like to see proper female CSGO team capable to complete in male (better to say open) tournaments, but as i said that sounds more like utopia. Sadly.

Hi HLTV, can you please put in "female CS" in the title so I dont end up clicking on the article accidentally next time? Thank you!

Would love to hear pansy casting male cs tournaments as well, kinda missing her. Unfortunately there was always a few haters in the chat and probably the hateful community for female casters steered her towards other games. Also Harry without budget Henry (or well I'd put it the other way these days, he's probably better caster than the other Henry) is weird.
2020-07-11 14:56
Where is SPUNJ :(
2020-07-11 15:28
Why delete voice of reason?)) Fe tournaments are as relevant to CSGO scene as staff cups. But staff cups at least are exciting to watch.
