While many teams are preparing for ESL Pro League in Dallas, eight other Counter-Strike teams have traveled to Tours, France for a DreamHack Open.
You have a good mix of upcoming teams trying to find consistent results are tournaments and once mighty brands that are struggling to win.
This weekend #DHOpen Tours 🇫🇷 begins and we can now reveal the groups and schedule!— DreamHack Counter-Strike (@DreamHackCSGO) May 14, 2018
Group A:@GambitEsports @GODSENTgg@AGOesports @Torquedgg
Group B:@TheNorthIsHere @HELLRAISERSgg @TeamEnVyUs @theimperialgg https://t.co/3MS05z5pi4 pic.twitter.com/LY58UHAw95
Team EnVyUs is one of the struggling teams as they have been relegated from both ECS and EPL. As the sole representative of France at the tournament, you can bet that Envy will feel the pressure. They already made a coaching change, most likely a panic move, and if things falter, expect more drastic changes on the horizon.
It will be fun to see teams like Torqued and The Imperial to compete on a bigger stage. While many will be watching the ESL Finals, don't forget to keep an eye out in France. There are plenty of storylines to keep you interested.
