BIG, EG among teams invited to DreamHack Open January Europe

FunPlus Phoenix also appears on the team list, albeit without the team's roster confirmed.

DreamHack Open January will take place on January 27-31 and feature eight teams in Europe and four in North America, with the invited squads now revealed by the tournament organizer.

BIG and Evil Geniuses headline the European team list, joined by two strong CIS sides in Gambit and Spirit. Johannes "⁠tabseN⁠" Wodarz and co. might get a chance to exact revenge on domestic rivals Sprout, who will also compete in the tournament, after losing to them in the ESL Meisterschaft grand final while the final name on the invite list is FunPlus Phoenix.

Ethan and co. will compete at the $70,000 event during their stay in Europe

FunPlus Phoenix's lineup isn't yet announced, but it is expected that the former GODSENT lineup will join the Chinese organization soon after months of rumors and speculations.

The team list for DreamHack Open January Europe will be finalized after the closed qualifier, where HellRaisers and forZe were invited.

The Dreamhack Open January Europe team list is as follows:

Two of the four European closed qualifier teams have also been unveiled:

Russia forZe
Europe Open Qualifier
Europe HellRaisers
Europe Open Qualifier

The tournament will only feature four teams in North America, with a $30,000 prize pool reserved for the tournament. TeamOne and Triumph have spots in the main event, while Rebirth and High Coast were invited to the closed qualifier.

some teams need the esl points cuz of their stupid ESL pro tour ranking where a DH open is worth more than smth like the 200k cs_summit (which is 0 points)

It wasn't a qualifier, it was a separate event that also gave an invite for DH January (since it is kind of a replacement for DH Leipzig)
2021-01-19 17:15
ESL want to give ESLM more value. Last years MDL invites now DH Open invites. it is no qualifier. Also BIG is still a top 10 team they can be happy that they wanna play there.

There's no way anyone can hate on BIG, so great of them to purpusefully lose against Sprout in Meisterschaft so both of them can qualify and BIG can help the German scene again!
