GosuGamers are happy to announce the first qualifier for this summer's DreamHack playoffs. This Sunday, May 31 at 18:00 CET, two wildcards directly into the playoffs played at DreamHack are at stake.

The wildcards from the canceled offline qualifiers (Göteborg and Skellefteå) are instead placed in these two upcoming online qualifiers.

To help foreign players have an easier way to come to DreamHack without bringing their computers, the playoffs will be played in a computer landscape handed to us by DreamHack.

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.

The winner and the runner-up of the two online qualifiers will each get a wildcard for the playoffs. The winner will get a higher seed for the playoffs.

Note that taking part in the online qualifiers, you entail yourself in being able to come to DreamHack. Should you know in beforehand that you can not attend - you may not play the qualifiers. Should you later find out you can not attend, you will be replaced by a player from the third qualifier.

Once on spot at DreamHack, we will host the last qualifier, starting at 12:00 on Sunday June 14. This qualifier holds four wildcards to the playoffs. Note that this tournament requires a computer spot at the tables at DreamHack, as it is played BYOC (Bring Your Own Computer) style.
