DreamHack creates CS:GO Regional Open Summer tournaments

For esports events organizers, these past few months have been really tough. From canceling live events to shifting their focus to online play, nothing has been easy. At least, these delays give some time for teams to focus on rebuilding, improving, and adding the finishing touch to their rosters. The coronavirus pandemic is also a perfect occasion to rethink the format of tournaments and do some rebranding. This is the case for DreamHack CS:GO tournaments, as they finally decided what they will do with their stops in Montreal, Hyderabad, and Valencia. These three tournaments will be transformed into DreamHack Regional Open Summer, taking place in Europe, North America, Asia, and Oceania.

Open Qualifiers and Invitations

Fans do not know yet which teams will be participating but this information will be revealed soon. This DreamHack CS:GO tournament will take place in three steps. First, all teams that did not get invitations must go through Open Qualifiers to win their places for what follows.  Next, in each region, qualified teams will compete against each other in Stage 1 to win their tickets to Stage 2. Europe, Asia/Oceania, and North America will each get two teams qualified and DreamHack will invite six other teams to wrap up Stage 2.  The European Stage 2 will be held from July 2 to July 5 as the Americas run from August 13 to August 16.
