StarCraft back this DreamHack Summer season

StarCraft Patrik “Raistlin” Hellstrand

After a quick StarCraft break on DreamHack Winter 2008, the game is now back in full force. We also present, as GosuGamers is the tournament organization, a new tournament format.



With a prize pot worth 4,500€ (50,000 SEK) we are proud to present StarCraft back in the DreamHack Summer season. With its return, we have changed the tournament format to a set of qualifiers that will follow up with a playoffs at DreamHack Summer.

Our first qualifier will kick off at DreamHack Skellefteå at March 6th to 8th. The winner will be granted a wildcard to the playoffs at DreamHack Summer 2009.

Secondly, we will have a second offline qualifier at an unknown place and date at the time. Just like in Skellefteå, one wildcard will be given to the winner for a spot in the playoffs DreamHack Summer 2009.

For those who have trouble attending offline events, we will also hold two online tournaments where each winner will grab a wildcard for the playoffs.

And last but not least, we will host an offline qualifier on spot in Jönköping during the first days at DreamHack Summer, taking place June 13th to 16th. The top 4 will qualify for the playoffs where the previous wildcard winners await.

The playoffs will be played on tournament computers in a single elimination best of three (best of five for grand final) format.

For more information on how to sign up for the tournament at DreamHack Skellefteå, stay tuned to GosuGamers.net.

Note: The wildcards won gains entry to DreamHack Summer 2009 and a spot in the playoffs. Travel expenses are not paid out. Neither are you granted a computer spot at the tables at DreamHack.
