DreamHack Open Fall groups announced

The RMR tournament will begin in two weeks, starting with a double-elimination group stage.

DreamHack revealed on Wednesday the groups for the upcoming DreamHack Open Fall, the last Regional Major Ranking (RMR) tournament of the year. The 16 participating teams have been split into four double-elimination, best-of-three groups, from which the top three will progress to the playoffs.

All eyes will be on Group B, featuring three top-10 teams in Heroic, G2 and Astralis. The trio will be widely expected to finish ahead of Endpoint, who were one of the surprise packages of the closed qualifier after beating mousesports twice. Finn "⁠karrigan⁠" Andersen's troops face a difficult task to make it out of Group A, which also features Vitality, fnatic and OG.

G2 placed in a stacked group with Astralis, Heroic and Endpoint

Current world No.5 BIG should cruise through what looks to be a fairly straightforward Group C, which also contains FaZe, GODSENT and sAw. Group D looks to be wide open: featuring ENCE — who will field Sami "⁠xseveN⁠" Laasanen because of Elias "⁠Jamppi⁠" Olkkonen's VAC ban —, NiP, Sprout and North, it is the only one without a top-10 side.

Below you can find the groups:

DreamHack Open Fall will take place beween October 15 and 25, with $115,000 up for grabs in addition to RMR points. The top two teams from each group will advance to the playoffs' upper bracket, while the third-placed sides will fight for survival in the lower bracket.

The winner of the tournament will also claim a spot at the IEM Global Challenge, the $500,000 LAN tournament that ESL will hold in Cologne between December 15 and 20.

Rigged group so Faze can finally proceed to playoffs lmao
2020-09-30 18:35
everyone in that group can beat them honestly
2020-09-30 19:36
Tbh all these groups are hard as shit. Group A deoends on if Mouz and FNC show up, B is all on how Heroic and G2 are gonna play, C is the real group of death cuz its 3 teams in a shit state and a T3 team with upset potential. Group D is just all ?s with ENCE suffering from the coaching ban, North existing, Sprout being a bit unknown, and NiP not having nawwk. Should be a stupid event with upsets
2020-09-30 19:58
we're gonna win the whole thing easily

B and C are pretty similar. Maybe more interesting if you swap Faze for G2/Heroic, but it's all in all pretty similar. Saw and Endpoint are more or less on the same level, with Saw being a bit better imo.
2020-09-30 17:09
Astralis, Heroic, G2 >>>>>> FaZe, BIG, GODSENT What are you on about
2020-09-30 17:33
Otoh faze is absolute dogshit, so he's right
2020-09-30 17:34
sAw >>>>>>>> Astralis, Heroic, G2 >>>>>>>>>>> Faze, BIG, GODSENT
2020-10-01 11:05
You are making a fool of our flag, sAw is only better than endpoint and maybe godsent, if we win to others it will be based on either rng, counter tactics or the other teams playing bad

Exactly my thoughts lol, but we'll see how it goes. The groups could be a lot worse, so I'll take what I can get.
2020-09-30 17:23
I mean at least the worse groups according to the eye test maybe will be more interesting... although imo the banger groups are a and b
2020-09-30 18:29
Yo le noob, For le Group c and d are to watch, all the team are on the same level more or less.

big easily win group stage and prob reach semi finals ez end then we will see whats gonna happen
2020-09-30 17:06
wtf is this seeding???
2020-09-30 17:06
Group A - mousesports eliminated Group B - Endpoint eliminated Group C- sAw eliminated Group D - ENCE eliminated
2020-09-30 17:07
D prediction :D
2020-09-30 17:17
ENCE are dead, they will be eliminated for sure.
2020-09-30 20:48
I think sAw can take the third place
2020-10-01 15:47
I think they can easily do better than FaZe and BIG, but I'm worried that the lack of experience will make them lose because of stress.
2020-10-01 16:41
Well, they have some experience but sometimes are inconsistent, and games they are surely winning, are thrown afterwards. Faze might have not been at their best but only against tier 1 teams, so i believe they can beat saw and godsent. Big as well are a great team.
2020-10-02 20:42
BIG are showing a bit of life left in them, but saying that they are a great team is way to much.
2020-10-03 14:58
Well, considering each player individually, Big has the second best crew in the group i would say
2020-10-04 19:45
I would say 3rd.
2020-10-04 19:52

2020-09-30 17:10
It’s not that Faze are weak, the teams they have been playing against are just better, so i see Faze topping this group, BIG in second, sAw in third and GODSENT in last. First place and second can change with big topping and faze second, but it will be those 2
2020-10-01 15:51

I think it was like this: Pot 1 (1st-4th in RMR points) Vitality G2 Godsent Ence Pot 2 (5th-8th in RMR points) NiP BIG Astralis Fnatic Pot 3 (9th-11th in RMR points + Closed qualifier winner [Sprout]) OG Heroic FaZe Sprout Pot 4 (Remaining closed qualifier teams) North sAw Endpoint Mouz Each group got a random team from each pot.
2020-09-30 17:35
Nope, on closed Qualifier teams playing after being qualified because of seeding so i believe in the first pots but then the ones that qualified were just put in order of seeding

Group B? 2nd, 7th and 9th best team in the world?? Meanwhile Group D - 14th, 16th, 22nd and 25th??? These groups must be made by a blind guy.
2020-09-30 18:02
not really, seeding is based on rmr points. its obviously not ideal tho cause thr rmr system started like 5 months ago, some of those teams really dropped level but they still get better seeding.
