WCG Sweden Announced; SK, Fnatic in Attendance

Jönköping, Sweden -- Sweden's biggest LAN center, DreamHack, will host Sweden's WCG qualifier.

WCG Sweden has always had its ups and downs – last year fnatic, the favorite of the tournament, was upset by Lag Blank in group stage and three years ago NiP upset SK-gaming in the finals – and will be even more intense now than its previous years.

With a new format, best of 3 single elimination, it should provide more ups and downs, and some unexpected upsets and even more exciting matches to be played.

Four teams – SK Gaming, fnatic, Lemondogs and Begrip – have been invited and four more will qualify in DreamHack's BYOC tournament.
