DreamHack Masters Spring 2020 – Asia Begins Today

by Nikhil Hathiramani

The US$20,000 event spans five days and features four teams – TYLOO, ViCi, Lucid Dream and Beyond Esports

Amid the on-going pandemic and global unrest, DreamHack Masters made a hasty announcement of the event within a few days of the closed qualifier. Running from April 18 – 20, the closed qualifier saw Thailand’s Lucid Dream and Beyond Esports come out on top.

While the four teams featured are not much of a surprise, key storylines are not to be missed. TYLOO will be playing with their revised all-Chinese line-up, while Lucid Dream is entering the fray with the newly announced all-Thai line-up. ViCi Gaming and Beyond are the two teams best suited to stir the pot with surprise wins. Top Mongolian side, TIGER, missed their opportunity after losing to ZIGMA in the open qualifiers.

The online event features a double-elimination BO3 bracket, with the grand finals played out as a best-of-five (BO5). The upper bracket winner will receive a default one-win advantage.

The first match-up is between TYLOO and Beyond and matches kick off today, June 2nd, at 18:00 [SGT]. A full schedule and details on prizes can be seen below.
