DreamHack Zowie Open Event Preview

Here is your preview of the upcoming DreamHack Zowie Open Event, which features two of the top-five CS:GO teams in the world.

The SL i-League may have ended last week, but that doesn’t mean there is no more Counter-Strike: Global Offensive action with some sizable prize money on the line.

Featuring two top five teams in <a href="https://twitter.com/TeamVirtuspro" target="blank”>Virtus.Pro and Cloud9″ target=”blank”>Cloud9, the DreamHack Zowie Open Event will run from Sept. 16-18, and will bring seven of the best European sides and a C9 American side.

The groups for the tournament are as follows:

Group A

Group B

The tournament itself will be a two group set up, with teams facing off in a best-of-one series to start and having best-of-threes only in decider matches. The top two teams will advance to a single elimination, best-of-three playoff bracket.

$100,000 will be the prize pool for this event, and will be given out as seen here:

  • 1st – $50,000
  • 2nd – $20,000
  • 3-4th – $10,000
  • 5-6th – $3,000
  • 7-8th – $2000
