Clan Milk and iG out of Redemption, replaced by 15 and PUDG
iG's spot goes to former QsQ members
It's Gosu announced the dissolvement of the team today, which ultimately resulted in an open spot in the DreamHon Redemption tournament. With iNsania and mmbzai moving to Trademark eSports the spot was vacated and later filled by Megabever's new team - Dendi's jungldevos. The Norwegian player has been around for a long time and appeared in the DreamHon OSC as a member of QsQ357, which made the playoffs. His new team will get it's first chance in a major tournament, being seeded in Group C against Pikachu, saishii and the new team of Panny.
Dendi's jungldevos roster :
Megabever, Tjore and ultimaDEFEND have quite some history with each other, being former members of BX3. After that all three joined the Q sQuad project and were part of QsQ357 (Megabever) and QsQ 1 (Tjore and ultimaDEFEND) in the DreamHon Online Summer Championship.
CM pulls out, giving 15 a chance
The other big team that is out of the tournament already is Group D champion Clan Milk. The team was a dominant force in the group stage of the OSC before completely losing their strength in the playoffs, where they went 0-2 without a single map victory. This tournament was the next shot for the North Americans to get the ticket to DreamHack Winter 2012, but school, college and work is blocking their tournament participation. The team has stated that the scheduled time would not work out for another month in the lives of some members, so the logical next step was to forfeit their spot. 15 will take that spot, after they have been a good European team for quite some time, having lost in stage two of the DreamHon OSC to Pikachu, later a playoff team of their own.
Merger opens door for Archi's Minions
The last spot that was opened for a non-competitor in DreamHon OSC was given to Archi's Minions. The spot originally was vacated with Pikachu and DDOS basically merging into one team. Swindlemelonzz and ZfreeK joned Pikachu, while Fittske and Reelo left HoN for now. So DDOS was no longer an active team and ArchiTiger took the spot with his new team.
