DreamHack Masters Spring Moves to Online Format
By Nathan Fusco
DreamHack has moved its spring Masters circuit to an online format that will take place over two weekends, the tournament organizers announced Friday. The tournament covers four regions: North America, Europe, Oceanic, and Asian. The first period will run from May 19-30 and will include teams from Europe and NA, while Asian and Oceanic teams will play on June 2-7.
The prize pool of $300,000 will be split amongst the four regions with $160,000 going to Europe, $100,000 for North America, $20,000 for Asia, and $20,000 for Oceania. Qualifiers for each region will run between April 16-20.
While a few teams will participate and attend through the qualifiers, direct invites for DreamHack Masters Spring have been issued to partner teams, winners of DreamHack Open Leipzig and Anaheim, as well as teams on the World Ranking.
While the status of ESL One Cologne is unknown at this time because of the COVID-19 pandemic, teams can still earn points to attend as the four regional champions will be rewarded points for their victory.
