Posted by Cristy "Pandoradota2" Ramadani at 14 September 2017 10:15

Team Liquid and Virtus.Pro are two of the major hitting headliners for the DreamLeague Season 8 Major EU and CIS closed qualifiers.

The hype doesn't stop there though. The star studded lineup is bound to make this event one of the most exciting and fierce of the Major/Minor qualifiers. In addition to the defending champions and TI7 winners - Team Liquid, Virtus.Pro, OG, Team Secret, Team Empire and Vega Squadron have been selected to compete at the highest level.

A total of eight teams will battle it - with one team from EU and one from the CIS open qualifiers joining the mix. The four best teams ( with at least one team from each region ensured) will advance to the playoffs at DreamHack Winter taking place December 1-4 in Jönköping, Sweden.

The league format will be played in round robin best of two. Due to the event reaching the Major status, the prize money for the league season including rewards for each match won has been suspended.

 

There is still time for teams to get in on the action to fill the final slots for the league season.
