The groups have been drawn and the schedule has been set. DreamHack Tours is set to kick off May 17th and run through the 19th in Tours, France.
The two groups will run in a double-elimination format and feature best-of-three matches in the lower bracket. At the end of the group stage, the top two teams from each group will move into the playoffs where they’ll compete in single-elimination best-of-three matches.
mousesports stands out in Group A competing against the lieks of Windigo, Valiance, and Instinct. Windigo took home the trophy at WESG 2018 and defeated G2 and MIBR in the process so they shouldn’t be counted out as a contender either.
For Group B, things get a little more interesting. G2 will have to fight tooth and nail against AVANGAR, Ghost, and FrenchFrogs (ex-3DMAX). All four teams have the potential to make it out of the group by placing top two and I wouldn’t be surprised with any outcome.
