“TF2 at Dreamhack? Is this a dream?” you may ask. And indeed, this may not be the tournament that the game needs to claim its rightful place at the top of eSports but nonetheless we still have a chance to show off our favourite game at the biggest gaming festival in the world!
Thanks to Esport United, we (that is Mia, GipsArm and myself) are able to host a small MGE tournament with some of the best swedish players at this year’s Dreamhack Winter.
The attending players are from the Swedish ETF2L Division 1 team Publiclir.se:
- Ond Kaja
Starting on Saturday at 11.00 CET, the above players can be challenged by visitors and players from the BYOC area for some mouse pads and TF2 shirts. After that, around 15.30 CET, the MGE tournament begins. All five invited players will face each other in a round robin setup, followed by the top 4 playing out the overall winner in a double elimination tournament. The grand prize is a Plantronics Gaming RIG stereo headset.
KritzKast’s Agro and Ruskeydoo are commentating the tournament over on the KritzKast channel and will probably have some guests joining in too.
If anyone is on site, you can find us in the DreamExpo area at B04:20 (next to Blizzard, Fragbite and S2 Games). Swing by and say hello!
Big thanks to Esport United for playing a big part in the organisation, QPAD for supplying the peripherals and especially to the players who could make it on such short notice!
A special mention goes to Ashkan for letting me and some of the players crash on his couch.
