DreamHack Winter group draw
The DreamHack organisation has announced the groups for the upcoming winter tournament.
Ukrainian giants Natus Vincere have been drawn in the same group as Antwerp Aces and Alchemists, while Lions will take on fellow countrymen RAGE and Danish side NoProblem!
The draw has thrown up a killer Group E, in which fnatic will have to work hard to beat Made in Brazil and .no. The new x6tence team won't have an easy task to progress, having been paired together with Power Gaming and Danish mix puta.
DreamHack Winter was initially supposed to have a total of 32 teams, but the organisation has decided to reduce the number to 24, cancelling six slots which were to be assigned, and two which belonged to qualifiers, one in Portugal, and the other one from DreamHack Skellefteå.
There are still four places up for grabs for DH Winter, which will go to the top-placed teams of the BYOC qualifier.
The top two teams from each group will progress to the single-elimination knock-out stage, played in best-of-three mode.
