Dreamhack Winter Groups announced

The Groups for Dreamhack Winter have been announced. The event which will feature eight teams from across the Globe will be held from the 24th November till 27th of November 2016. It will be held in the Swedish city of Jönköping.

Event Format :

  • Group stage
    • Two groups with four teams in each
    • Double elimination group format (GSL) Bo1 and Bo3
    • Top two from each group move on to the playoffs
  • Playoffs
    • Single-Elimination Bracket
    • Bo3 matches

Prize Pool :

  • 2nd Place : $20000
  • 3rd-4th Place : $10000

Participant Teams :

  • Cloud9
  • Dignitas
  • Godsent
  • Optic Gaming
  • Renegades
  • Flipside Tactics
  • Gambit Gaming
  • Team Kinguin

The Groups have been decided and are as follows :



Group A :

  • Team Dignitas
  • Godsent
  • Flipside
  • Kinguin

Group B :

  • Cloud9
  • Optic Gaming
  • Gambit Gaming
  • Renegades.

Group A definitely looks like a cakewalk for Team Dignitas. They have been in splendid form following their win at Epicenter 2016. The Danish roster can easily be said to be one of the best Danish teams in the current scenario.

Group B on the other hand seems to be much more closely contested. Cloud9 and Optic Gaming both have shown strong signs of form and yet have not been consistent with their results. A LAN event with Gambit gaming in the Group always holds the potential for an upset.
