First off, let’s have a look at the groups:
The groups will play out in the same format as the major. Each match will be a best-of-one, until the decider matches on Thursday, which will then follow a best-of-three format to decide who moves on to the second half of the tournament.
The group stage will be played on April 12-14 in a studio environment closed to the public. Saturday will mark the start for the rest for the teams who have made it to the quarter-finals, which will take place at the Malmö Arena in front of a live audience.
The semi-finals and the grand final will take place on Sunday, April 17 where first place will win themselves $100,000 and the DreamHack Masters trophy.
The first match of the tournament will be Luminosity vs. TyLoo, which is scheduled to start at 11:00 am CEST. Please remember as the day goes on, timing is subject to change due to the varying match lengths.
