DreamHack announce Masters Winter; six teams confirmed

The event will be held online on November 30-December 6 in four regions, Europe, North America, Asia, and Oceania, and will have a combined $250,000 prizepool on offer.

The European side of the competition will feature 16 teams, 12 of whom will receive direct invites while the remaining quartet will come from qualifiers. Partner teams Astralis, G2, Natus Vincere, and Complexity have already been confirmed for the tournament, which will begin with two double-elimination groups of eight, followed by a single-elimination playoffs bracket.

Over in North America, Evil Geniuses and Liquid will be joined by four more invited sides and two via qualifiers in a GSL-style group stage before the tournament culminates with a single-elimination bracket.

DreamHack Masters Spring runner-ups G2 will play in the Winter event

Asia and Oceania will comprise four teams each, who will take part in a double-elimination bracket. None of the participants, who will also be determined via a combination of invites and qualifiers (three to one), have been revealed in the two regions.

DreamHack Masters Winter will be the last Masters-level tournament in the ESL Pro Tour awarding points towards IEM Katowice, the next Masters Championship in the prestigious circuit.

The following six teams have been confirmed so far, with more to be announced shortly.

2020-09-08 20:17
Unfortunately yes.. fucking bots are managing to gather 60k on twitch at this very moment against Apeks. If I would be an organizer I would consider the viewers that each team can bring. Let’s hope I am wrong :)

2020-09-08 21:59
Im fine they do it online, but pls for the love of god, DH, put some bit more of effort on making it seem more serious. No more cams in their god damn bedrooms and kitchens (from the casters and talent whatever be), I dont need to see that i dont want to see that, and it sets everyone off from watching ur tournament.

Maybe it will not be like that because that was an open dreamhack not an masters?

2020-09-08 23:00
this is a tier 4 dh open event that's why I was wondering
2020-09-08 23:06
No this is a tier 1 DH Masters event.
2020-09-08 23:31
but Navi is in it?
2020-09-08 23:39
This is a tier 1 DH Masters event. NaVi is a tier 1 team BUG only plays tier 4 DH open events. BUG is a tier 4 online team. Made it easy for you to understand.
2020-09-08 23:48
BIG #4 Navi #8
2020-09-08 23:49
they had won twice and a tier 1 dh. So the invite will come anyway.
2020-09-09 01:09
please no mirb
2020-09-08 22:47
