Dreamhack announces its 2014 schedule
The mmorts king, Dreamhack have had an epic year, closing last week with the incredible, climactic, Dreamhack Winter Open in Jonkoping, Sweden. With almost 23,000 attendees and over 3,000,000 SEK in prize money, Dreamhack once again raised the eSports bar and shown the world that Europe was a force to be reckoned with.
The competitive mmo games communities came out in top form, with League of Legends, CounterStrike Go, Quake Live, DotA 2, Heroes of Newerth and, of course, StarCraft II gamers all proudly raising their banners (and dongers) high.
Now that the dust has began to settle, and the pro-gamers recover from their energy-drink-fueled hangovers, the Dreamhack 2014 schedule has been released, as if to say "don't get too comfortable, guys; there's more".
