The general information
DreamHack Summer 2019 will take place in Jonkoping, Sweden on June 15-17. The overall prize pool will amount $100,000 and 8 teams will take part in its distribution, 6 of which are the owners of direct invites and other two - the teams, which have passed qualifiers. Elmia Convention Center will traditionally be a venue and the main money prize will be $50,000.
The tournament will be hosted by the classical scheme of all DreamHack season events. The championship will start from a group stage where teams will be seeded into two groups with four participants in each one. They will be playing by the GSL system there. The first two matches of the group stage will be carried out in a bo1 series, while the rest of battles at the tournament will be hosted in a bo3 format.
The top two teams will advance from each group to the playoffs and three matches will be played in the final stage: two semi-finals and the grand final.
The distribution of the prize pool
This part, just like any other events in the DreamHack season series, remains unchanged. The teams to hold the last places in their groups will earn $2,000. The teams to place third will receive a consolation prize in the sum of $3,000. Participants, which will advance to the playoffs but not get to the grand final and stop on the 3rd-4th place in the standings, will become the owners of the money reward in the sum of $10,000. The vice-champion will earn $20,000 and the winner of the tournament will grab $50,000.
