Dreamhack’s final CS:GO major kicks off tomorrow in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. The most anticipated major of the year comes bearing heavy burdens for most teams who are pressured to perform, and of course will answer the question of whether or not Fnatic can make it three in a row. Here is your survival guide, and all you need to know.

The Format

There are few notable changes happening at the last Major. For one the event will run for five days beginning tomorrow, whereas previous Dreamhack majors ran for the usual four. The event will kick off with the group stages, dedicating the entire weekend to the knock-out stages. The top sixteen teams (eight legends, eight challengers) are split into four groups of four, with top two making their way out of the group stages. Here are the groups

Group A

  • Fnatic
  • Luminosity
  • Cloud9
  • Vexed Gaming

My picks: Fnatic and Cloud9

Group B

  • TSM
  • Gamers2
  • MOUSESPORTS
  • FLIPSID3

My picks: TSM and MOUSESPORTS

Group C

  • Virtus.Pro
  • NIP
  • Titan
  • Team Liquid

My picks: Virtus.Pro and Titan

Group D

  • EnvyUS
  • Na’Vi
  • CLG
  • Team Dignitas

My picks: EnvyUS and Na’Vi

There could be some upsets on the horizon. NIP haven’t been performing as of late, so they could always step it up and make it out of Group C. Luminosity have had a relatively good run as well in North America, as well as CLG. Group D will definitely be the one to watch this tournament.
