On September 14-15, DreamHack Open 2013, one of the largest digital festivals in the world, returns to Romania after last year's successful event. This time, three times bigger and stronger, Dreamhack is located right in the center of Bucharest in the city's biggest event hall. Gamers from around the world will compete in three tournaments (StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm, League of Legends, and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive) for big cash prizes: $10,000 USD for League, $15,000 USD for CS: GO and a whopping $26,000 USD for StarCraft II.
More than 15,000 spectators are expected and they will get to see the strongest line-up in DreamHack StarCraft II history in action! Returning champions combined with some of the best European players and some new faces to the DreamHack Stage. More than 80 professional StarCraft II players will battle for the prize money and a chance to participate in the grand finals at DreamHack Winter in Jönköping, Sweden.
The League of Legends and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive tournaments are organized by the Romanian Professional Gamers League (PGL), which is also organizing DreamHack Romania. The best European teams have been invited to participate to both tournaments, and the winners of the CS:GO tournament will also earn a spot at DreamHack Winter 2013.
Along with the professional tournaments, PGL will organize many side tournaments for the spectators at the event. Big prizes will be available in League and Dota 2 mini-tournaments, and fans will get to vote for the nicest costumes in the Cosplay Competition.
Mad Catz will once again be teaming up with PGL, providing prizes for all tournaments, and gear for the PCs in the tournament area. If you're attending DreamHack and interested in trying out some of the latest Mad Catz products, you'll be able to get your hands on them at the Mad Catz booth in the stage area.
