DreamHack to host Face-off tournament series with $100,000 prize pool|Dot Esports
DreamHack Face-off, the all-female CS: GO competition, will return in 2020, DreamHack announced today.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, DreamHack Showdown will host 4 online series with a combined reward pool of $100,000. The competition series will consist of two events in Europe and 2 events in North America with a prize pool of $25,000 each.
The first occasions are set to begin on July 17 in Europe and July 24 in The United States and Canada as part of the DreamHack Showdown Summer Season. The DreamHack Showdown Fall will take place later on this year, with a date that’s yet to be validated.
DreamHack will utilize a double-elimination bracket as the format for the Face-off tournament series. It’ll include two welcomed groups and 4 squads that will come from open qualifiers. The invited groups will be seeded into the 2nd round of the upper bracket, while the lineups from open qualifiers will deal with each other in the preliminary.
” DreamHack is devoted to supporting variety, so this event has actually become especially unique to us,” stated Marcus Lindmark, DreamHack’s co-CEO. “These are going to be significant competitors including a few of the very best women CS: GO players on the planet– it is genuinely a not-to-be-missed competition.”
DreamHack Face-off was presented in 2019 at DreamHack Valencia in July. 8 all-female teams battled for the $50,000 leading reward and a spot at DreamHack Open Rotterdam in October. Besiktas beat CLG Red in the grand finals and won the very first edition of DreamHack Face-off.
