DreamHack Open Fall playoffs bracket set
The Regional Major Ranking event's group stage has concluded as eight teams will start the playoffs in the upper bracket and four in the lower bracket.
The final day of action of the DreamHack Open Fall group stage saw the four groups' deciding matches play out and determine who gets to join the group winners in the upper bracket and who has to start their playoffs campaign from the lower bracket.
G2, fnatic, NIP, and GODSENT placed second in their respective groups after winning their deciders, leaving Heroic, OG, Sprout, and FaZe in third place after all four series came down to the third maps.
With the seeding decided, the playoffs bracket has been set. The first two matches of the double-elimination bracket will witness two rare matchups between Astralis and GODSENT and North and fnatic, before BIG face a rather familiar opponent in G2 and Vitality take on NIP for the staggering twelfth time in 2020. Meanwhile, the group stage's third-placed teams await their opening encounters in the lower bracket.
The playoffs will kick off on Monday and will run for the rest of the week until the winner is found in Sunday's grand final series, a match that will not only determine who gets the grand prize of 2,500 RMR points and $33,000 but also a coveted spot at Cologne's IEM Global Challenge LAN event.
The schedule of the first three days of the playoffs looks as follows:
