The DreamHack Open Fall was officially announced. The tournament will take place in mid-October and some of the biggest European teams are already waiting.
After the ESL One: Rio Major was officially canceled, all CS:GO fans are craving for tournaments. After the DreamHack Winter, the DreamHack Open Fall was announced, including the first 11 teams that qualified via direct RMR rankings. The tournament will be the main event of the Regional Major Ranking tournament circle. The prize pool for the big event stands at a total of $115,000.
The list of teams is based on the official ranking within the RMR. The 11 teams with the most points receive direct invites. Among them, we find some of the biggest names in Europe. All remaining teams have to compete for the last five remaining places in a closed qualifier. The closed qualifier is set to kick off on September 18.
As we've already mentioned five more teams will join from the closed qualifiers. Nine teams qualified directly for the closed qualifiers and seven more will join from open qualifiers.
