DreamHack Masters Stockholm 2018: Group Draws and Schedule

The organizers of DreamHack Masters Stockholm 2018 have revealed the group draws and schedule for their upcoming Counter-Strike: Global Offensive event with $250,000 at stake.

The event will take place on August 29th – September 2nd in the capital of Sweden at Ericsson Globe. The tournament’s line-up includes 16 teams, which have been seeded into four groups as follows:

Group A Group B Group C Group D
Astralis Natus Vincere FaZe Clan mousesports
North NRG Esports Fnatic MiBR
TyLoo Ninjas in Pyjamas OpTicGaming HellRaisers
Grayhound Gaming Ghost Gaming Heroic Gambit Esports

Each group will feature its own double-elimination bracket, where the opening matches will be best-of-one, while the rest will be best-of-three. Top two teams from each group will advance to a single-elimination playoffs bracket with best-of-three matches, while the other teams will be eliminated. As can be seen from our odds and team rankings, each group looks very even. Four most powerful teams – Astralis, Natus Vincere, FaZe Clan and mousesports – are in different groups and have a very high chance of advancing to the playoffs.
