Gauntlet has returned, and if you still haven't played a Gauntlet game it is about time. Gauntlet Slayer Edition gives you all the action you have come to expect from a Gauntlet game in the past, the only thing that is missing from this version is you do not need to fill your pockets with...

Review - The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

The Witcher is the most immerse open-world game ever created, that’s right, I said it. Even with its flaws this is the game to beat for game of the year on many gamers lists this year. I am even going to go as far as to say that this will change open-world games forever, if your game doesn’t...

Review - Broken Age (PS4)

I grew up with adventure games, it is still my favourite genre of all time, but lately the genre has slowly faded out, much being because of the attention span of gamers nowadays, and the thought of them getting stuck on a puzzle more than a few minutes seems absurd. But Double Fine is trying...

There is a thin line between inspiration and plagiarism and Shovel Knight balances this perfectly. By paying homage instead of ripping off classic NES games it simply creates nostalgic magic for older gamers while introducing old school classic gameplay to the newer generation. This is one of...

HotS Logo2

EIZO, HyperX, and Razer are proud to join DreamHack in presenting the DreamHack Open 2014 Tour with six live StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm tournaments across Europe. The best Starcraft II pro-gamers from around the globe will have the opportunity to compete for a total of $200,000 being awarded as well as earn their place in esports history as the next DreamHack Open Champion.

DreamHack Open 2014 will feature the same core format that fans and players have come to know and love in the 2013 year; including completely open sign-ups as well as the much praised final eight players show. With a newly added stop in Moscow, each DreamHack Open stop will qualify four players to the tour-ending Grand Finals hosted at DreamHack Winter. To make it to the final championship at DreamHack Winter, every single player will need to prove themselves at a live tour stop.

“DreamHack Open had an explosive ending in 2013 with Team Liquid’s TaeJa concluding a year of domination with a victory over StarTale’s Life. We are very excited to see how the stories will unfold in 2014.” says DreamHack CEO, Robert Ohlén “Of course none of this would be possible without the support of our sponsors, so we are thrilled to welcome back EIZO and HyperX, as well as welcome Razer and thank them for making 2014 the biggest year for DreamHack Open yet.”

DREAMHACK OPEN FORMAT, PRIZE MONEY AND WCS POINTS
For 2014, DreamHack Open will feature a very similar circuit format to 2013. Each Open tour stop will feature sign-up for open participation of up to 96 players, a mixture of professionals as well as amateurs. All competitors will compete in 3 group stages to narrow down to 16 players, and from here the competition will become single elimination best of 3, with a best of 5 grand finals. An important note is this year we will align with the StarCraft II World Championship Series (WCS) system, and shift from using round-robin group stage format to dual tournament group stage format. We are proud to continue partnership with Blizzard Entertainment and the StarCraft II WCS competition in offering 4,000 WCS points for every DreamHack Open Tour stop. The top four players of each open tour stop will qualify to the DreamHack Open Grand Finals to be hosted at DreamHack Winter 2014.

Total Prize Money : $200,000
