As expected and promised, Dreamhack returns with another Corsair Vengeance Cup this winter. The tournament will be similiar to last one, 16 teams will play for the prize pool of $29,000.

The team size and prize pool is an exact mirror of the Summer edition. 16 teams will start out in a group stage phase where 8 teams make it into the best-of-3 single elimination playoffs. The total prize pool is 200 000 SEK which roughly translates to $29,000.
1st - 100 000 SEK (~$14,500)
2nd - 50 000 SEK (~$7,300)
3rd - 25 000 SEK (~$3,600)
4th - 25 000 SEK (~$3,600)

The 16 tournament slots will be distributed in the following manner:
10 invited teams
6 qualified teams

The offline qualifier at Valencia is in fact already played and won by Fnatic Raidcall.

The roster of mTw is yet unknown but syndereN still has time to build a new team and perhaps claim his third consecutive Dreamhack championship.
