Team NKT and HZ Invited to DreamHack Open June Asia Closed Qualifier; sk0R to play for NKT

by Juandi

Two of Southeast Asia’s giant squads will compete in the DreamHack Open June Closed Qualifier in order to advance for the US$30,000 playoffs.

It is expected to be Team NKT’s first appearance with Tengis “sk0R” Batjargal, who joined Team NKT’s ESEA roster on June 8. According to several close sources to the team, the 19-year-old is anticipated to compete for the international roster at this tournament. Until then, there is no information on who will be replaced to make space on the active roster for sk0R.

Meanwhile, it will be Jorell “Retla” Teo‘s maiden journey into the top competition with the Singaporean squad Huat Zai. Retla took the place of Leslie “Bobosaur” Soen, who was moved to the bench last month.

Yesterday, DreamHack Open June has also announced that it will feature two invited teams from Asia’s most competitive nations to date, with Lynn Vision Gaming (LVG) representing China and D13 Esports representing Mongolia, respectively.

For Asia, DreamHack Open 45 June will be split into three parts. It will begin with a set of qualifiers held in two phases, commencing with two open qualifiers on June 10-11 and June 12-13, respectively, and culminating with a closed qualifier comprised of the winners of each open qualifier and the two invited teams of Team NKT and HZ. The top two finishers will then qualify for the main event, where they will battle for a US$30,000 prize pool and a spot at IEM Fall 2021.

Except for the grand final match, all playoff matches will be played in a double-elimination bracket using the best-of-three (BO3) system. On July 3, the grand final will begin with a best-of-five (BO5) format, with the upper-bracket team earning a map advantage.
