DH Valencia switches to CS:GO
DreamHack has announced that the Valencia stop will feature Counter-Strike: Global Offensive instead of the planned CS 1.6 tournament.
Taking place next week at Feria Valencia, DreamHack Valencia was supposed to feature a 1.6 tournament with a €5,000 prize purse.
The organizers today announced that they have made the decision to switch to CS:GO, stating it is based on the low amount of signups. The tournament will still feature €5,000 in prizes, with the winning team taking home €2,500.
So far only three teams have signed up for the tournament. Spanish teams x6tence, DAMNATORUM and k1ck from Portugal, but all three will have to confirm themselves for the CS:GO tournament. The tournament is open to a total of eight teams.
In order to sign up for the tournament, every player must have purchased a BYOC pass. You must then send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following info:
Name of the captain
Email of the captain
Email confirming the purchase of the BYOC passes
Name of the team

The tournament will be starting with a group stage, two groups of four teams playing best-of-one map, before moving on to the playoffs played best-of-three maps in a single elimination bracket.
