This years Dreamhack Malmo 2017 will be held from 30th August till 3rd of September. This year there will be a new format for the event. Semmler is one of the members working on this new format. CSGO tournament formats have been under a lot of flak recently with many disappointed with the Swiss system which ensures that underdogs have a greater chance of causing an upset.
The biggest problems for tournaments is the shorter number of days available for the tournaments. This limits their ability to try out new formats which can potentially be seen as fair.
Working on a different format for DH Malmo, which is why I won't be attending the event this time around. See you soon!
