DreamHack Summer info released

DreamHack Summer 2012 has released more information for the event taking place on June 16-18 in Jönköping, Sweden.

As announced previously, this year's DreamHack Summer event will only feature an eight team Counter-Strike 1.6 tournament where six of the teams were invited for the tournament while the last two spots will be filled via the BYOC qualifier on site.

Notable teams signed up for the BYOC qualifier:

Brazil Brasil Gaming (bit, btt, FalleN, fnx, shemp)
Russia zNation (Aerodynamic, hondroz, liTTle, redman, wAke)
Sweden Coldfrag (pawnile, pop, seazon, spozy, Zyppe)
Sweden a2g (dennis, hyvlarn, olofm, pronax, rogga)
Russia Virtus.pro (evil, hooch, kucher, LeX, xaoc)
Sweden icsu (unknown)

Members of Anexis have also previously expressed their willingness to attend the event should their schedules permit it. The only notable team missing is eSrael who won't be attending the qualifier and were not on the invited teams list:

Ukraine Natus Vincere Sweden SK Gaming Poland ESC Gaming
Sweden fnatic Sweden WinFakt Russia Moscow Five

The BYOC qualifier will take place on Saturday June 16 with matches running from 17:00 to Broken tag. Since the top two teams will qualify for the main tournament, the grand final will not be played out.

Saturday, June 16:

2012-06-08 06:14
I want too see FalleN and co. win that BYOC qualifier but Virtus.pro and a2g are too dangerous, i think a2g Brazil.AMD
2012-06-08 09:03
Brasil is practicing already, at Inferno Online. already played against ESC, NaVi, WinFakt and fnatic. if they fail to qualify, RIP brazilian cs - imo. oh, and lurppis, waiting for you predictions :)
2012-06-08 09:05
Yeah, i know that Brasil is practicing with top teams, but for me this is gonna be too hard for they... i think Brasil can win one spot alongside with a2g
2012-06-08 09:11
if they fail to qualify, RIP brazilian cs - imo. +1
2012-06-16 02:32
I think the same. a2g and virtus.pro are the most dangerous teams in BYOC.
2012-06-08 11:30
Imo the most swedish mixteams got decent skills. :)
2012-06-08 14:40
zNation is pretty hard too. they should be careful
2012-06-08 15:28
no way. zNation is easy... They played a torney in Portugal and k1ck e-sports raped them! zNation have no chance...
2012-06-08 16:53
and therefore they have no chances?thats pretty stupid tbh : P
2012-06-08 19:37
i don't belive in that.. Results will show you that i have reason
2012-06-08 19:50
lol dude...
2012-06-08 21:06
But do not forget they can learn from their mistakes and they have had time to practice and improve!
2012-06-09 09:17
If praccs can tell anything, then no. zNation will not stand a chance.
2012-06-13 00:47
DH needs moar teams! and money
2012-06-08 06:15

cArn in the ISCU team for sure. Probably along HeatoN, SpawN and potti. We know cArn will be playing at DreamHack, so its highly possible.

Bad timing for eSrael aswell. trace having exams when the event starts.

Stop mate its lan tourney , they know we know that they cant performe as online they do....
2012-06-08 12:03

they did fine at last lan?
2012-06-08 13:48

2012-06-08 14:01
so you don't think they did fine?
2012-06-08 14:41
yes, thats why i think the guy was joking..
2012-06-08 14:46
I don't think he was joking
2012-06-08 20:22
we know?
2012-06-08 06:47
We dont know, we may suppose that as he wrote on his facebook "16.06.2012".
2012-06-08 10:51
We need sherlock asap to solve this case
2012-06-08 11:12

cArn said it somewhere, that he will attend DreamHack. HeatoN, SpawN and potti are just guessing, but potti have been playing lately, and HeatoN would only start again if potti did, and why wouln't SpawN follow?
2012-06-08 13:05
HeatoN seems to be just loud mouth :p But even if they attend i doubt carn would play with heaton&co and besides ISCU already has a team. I might be wrong though.

Just some loose rumors. The lineup is yet to be announced, so you never know :-)

2012-06-08 15:13
it was only a cArn's dreamhack :D
2012-06-08 15:50
How do you know that he will play?
2012-06-08 16:25
He doesnt he is just assuming and i think he will go to DreamHack but just as a coach of the cs team.

2012-06-08 08:02
since it's only 8 teams participating in main tournament, they should change format familiar with ASUS. 3 teams from 1 group going to playoffs (1st - to semi-finals, 2nd & 3rd to quarter-finals)
2012-06-08 08:13
wow..a lot of good teams in qualify..Brasil.AMD fo sho and i think some rusian team :)
2012-06-08 08:17
eSrael should be there...disappointing...

good, without anexis and Israel, Brazil and surely qualifies Although Brazil get a top 3 <3
2012-06-08 08:40
This is gonna be too hard for Brazil to get his spot, because Virtus.pro and a2g have very good lineup

2012-06-08 09:21
I think Trace and perhaps some of the other guys have examinations they need to finish. They are usually around that date in June, but I'm only guessing based on his interview when he left SK...

2012-06-08 16:07
i agree
2012-06-08 16:15
Skillz of Boras surely were one of the best teams, since they qualified from the BYOC to the main event?
