DreamLeague Announce Season 7

Announcing DreamLeague Season 7

The League

DreamLeague is back with it’s seventh season and we are very excited to show you guys what we have been working on since the season 6 finals at DreamHack Winter 2016. You will recognise a lot of things from past seasons because we think they work really well and we want to continue to build on the traditions in DreamLeague.

Season 7 will continue to carry the DreamLeague concept with prize money connected to each map win during the season. This way we can make sure that every broadcasted game still packs a lot of excitement even though any team in the series might not be able to qualify for the playoffs.

The biggest change for season 7 is that we will expand the league to north america. We recognise the growing Dota2 talent in the NA region and we want to give them a chance to prove themselves in DreamLeague without having to deal with latency issues. Therefore we have created an NA division for DreamLeague season 7 with 4 teams. They will duke it out and compete for one playoff spot.

And the second big change to season 7 is that the playoffs will be held in Atlanta during DreamHack Atlanta on July 21-22.

Qualifiers

The general level of all professional teams are getting a lot more even and at the same time we see the creations of a lot of teams capable to compete on the highest level. Therefore we have decided to bring back qualifiers for DreamLeague and we are applying it to both divisions. The qualifiers will be ran with FaceIT on their platform. More information to come in the upcoming weeks.
