Information[edit]

The 2015 DreamHack Open is a series of three StarCraft II tournaments organized by DreamHack. Contrary to the previous seasons, there is no Grand Finals at DreamHack Winter as StarCraft II was replaced by Counter-Strike: Global Offensive as the main game of DreamHack Open. The total prizepool is also down to $75,000 in 2015 from $200,000 in 2014.

The DreamHack Open 2015 series was announced on March 11, 2015.[1]

  • Matches are Bo3
  • Top 2 players of each group advance to the playoffs

Playoffs

  • 32 players in a single-elimination bracket
