Esports News – The Montreal stop is delayed, but we have DreamHack Open Sevilla to keep the 2019 Dreamhack Open circuit going. In Spain, 8 top-tier CS:GO teams battle it out to determine the champion of a new CS:GO Major and close out the 2019 circuit. The winning team takes home their regional title and the lion’s share of the $100,000 USD prize pool.
The 8 competing CS:GO teams are divided into two groups with four members each. All 6 are teams who made it to the top 20 global rankings, but the other two are winners of the recent European and Iberian qualifiers. CR4ZY and North lead the rankings in Group A, while Tricked and GODSENT are on Group B’s highest-ranked teams.
DreamHack Open Sevilla follows the traditional format of most CS:GO major tournaments: group stage to playoffs. The two groups will face opposing members in two double-elimination matches. The opening and winner matches are in BO1, while the elimination and decider matches are in BO3. Only two teams from each group move on to the playoffs where they have to compete in BO3, single-elimination matches. The entire tournament runs from December 13 to 15.
