With the disbandment of Copenhagen Wolves and now the withdrawal of Moscow 5, DreamHack organisers have announced that The Tough Bananas and Team Infused will take over those positions. Also released were the groupings for the $29,000 Summer Edition.

Europe mouz
Denmark TTB

Infused were perhaps the most logical choice, being a all-Swedish team. They will no doubt enjoy having home-crowd advantage in Jonkoping. TTB, a Danish- European mix were recently crowned champions of one of joinDota's masters series, beating Darer in the finals.

Group A and B each contain 2 invited teams and 2 qualifiers. Mouz will look to bounce back from their International Qualifying defeat with a group consisting of Darer, TTB and Keita. Absolute Legends will make their debut on LAN against Europeans and find themselves in Group B, with Infused, Virtus Pro and Quantic, who qualified under the tag of ex-Gosu.

Defending champions mTw see themselves in Group D, together with Evil Geniuses, while heavy favourites Na`Vi find themselves up against home-team CLG in Group C. They will be joined by 2 BYOC qualifiers each.
