Throughout March and April, 8 teams are invited to compete for $6000 in prize money and a guaranteed qualification slot to the DreamHack Summer Dota 2 Championship. The online tournament will feature 2 groups of 4 teams, where each will compete in a round robin format to advance from the group stage, to a single elimination bracket, where one team will be crowned champion.

Dramhack's broadcast and organization partner for this event will be The GD Studio. They will be broadcasting all matches live from The GD Studio in Stockholm, Sweden. The Broadcast team will include: James "2GD" Harding, Andy "Draskyl" Stiles, Johan "wEppas" Westberg, Rikard "Skrff" Melin, Bruno "Statsman" Carlucci and Niklas "Wagamama" Högström.

    • 1st place of each group gets seeded directly into the semifinals.
