I guess due to covid-19 pandemic they decided to work together, but even then, these small tournaments had their own name - dreamhack open and there was one big event last year called Dteamhack Masters. After the deal with the Saudis, these small events are now called ESL Challenger.
2022-05-25 03:45
On their site it's called Dreamhack Valencia tho, not ESL Challenger Valencia. Mb because it's a festival as they say and there will be more activities besides CS GO tournament. dreamhack.com/tickets/

furia getting promoted to main event makes a possibility for any teams to make it in the na closed quali, so maybe ATK or pain can get a chance to get a decent lan spot

i wonder why no EG in the NA qualifier... doubt they were not invited at least for the closed qualifiers. They are playing pinnacle cup early june and blast just in late august. maybe they will have some roster change depending how pinnacle cup goes.

they won the qualifier but honnestly, even if an asian team had gotten an invite instead, i would quite understand. Asia, Africa and the Americas need a little push, inventment, oportunities. we can't let cs only be Europe. plus, at the moment SAW doesnt deserve the invite. there are teams performing better, the place where the tournment is being held isnt that relevant. It would be if it was in Portugal.
