DreamHack Winter Groups Announced

SWEDEN -- The groups have been announced for DreamHack's winter event that will take place this weekend.

DreamHack Winter – the largest LAN event in all of Sweden – has announced the groups for their professional tournament's group stage. Along with the group stage it appears that there will be an open bracket for which the people will be able to qualify to play with the best in the world.

Group A contains the first American team, Team EG, along with the new Finnish wooSai and two relative unknowns, 0bits and LZ. Group B has millennium, who placed third at DreamHack summer as well as reaching the round of eight at WCG Grand Finals in Chengdu earlier this month, along with team TitaNs and the newly formed Danish team XLBET.

Group C contains Swedish powerhouse SK-Gaming, who did not compete in WCG Grand Finals but did win IEM Chengdu and IEF 2009 Grand Finals; they will be joined by k1ck eSports club and a polish team Darkside.

Group D features mTw, who placed top three in WCG early this month. They will be joined by playmore and coldfrag, two teams with little exposure outside of their own team.

Group E features ESEA I champions compLexity who will be playing in their first international tournament since joining the organization early in the summer, Begrip's new Swedish team and Belgiums Rodcad gaming. Group F has Finland's Power Gaming, Denmark's SoA, and 2easy4 who are yet another team with little known experience.

Group G features h2k, who despite playing well at NorrLAN fell short in bracket play in WCG's Grand Finals, as well as Polish D-link PGS and n0u. In the final group, group H, has MYM's second international display after playing extremely well in IEM Dubai and the Oslo Lions as well as an unknown LCSL.

Along with these teams each group, with except group A, will have a team from the open bracket who won their individual bracket.
