After a month of deliberation, Microsoft is now offering up a roster of three teams that will compete in DreamHack Winter 2018: Team SoloMid, SK Telecom T1, and the Cloud9 roster that has been hanging around for months.
DreamHack Winter, which will be held from December 14 to 17, will feature a $100,000 prize pool and a roster that includes several former top players and veterans from the Dota 2 scene.
Team SoloMid and SK Telecom have been competing for the past two months, and Cloud9 has been one of the most successful teams in the world since joining the scene in 2015.
Cloud9 will have the chance to prove its mettle against teams like the likes of Fnatic, SKT T1 and MVP Black, while also facing off against a roster with a proven history of winning LANs.SK Telecom T0T, the Cloud 9 team that has struggled to win games in the past, will be joined by former Cloud 9 players such as Faker, fng, and s1mple.
SK Telecom will also have a chance to make history in the tournament, with the addition of a new jungler to the team.
The team will be represented by veteran jungler Zven, and a number of former Cloud9 players including Faker and Loda will also be back in the team as well.SKT T0M, the reigning champions of the 2016 NA LCS Spring Split, will have a lot to prove as well, as it will be competing against teams from all around the world.
The former Cloud 10 champion will have to prove to his new teammates that he is worthy of playing for a world title, while his team will have their eyes on the DreamHack Summer Championships, where they will compete against the top teams in Europe.SKTI, the former Cloud Nine team that finished third in the 2016 EU LCS Summer Split, is a team that is still very young in the scene.
The roster that finished second at the 2016 DreamHack Open Summer will be one of only two teams to ever compete at the major event.
The teams new junglers are going to have to compete with a number who are all familiar to the NA LCS, as they are members of the Cloud 10.
This team has a lot of talent, and it will also face a lot on its home turf.
SKTI has been an NA LCS team for a while, and its time to finally take it to the next level.
Cloud9 is a very young team that had some ups and downs in 2016, but will now be a team ready to compete at a major event that it has never played at.
Cloud 9 has a number veteran players, including the likes for fng and kennyS, and this team is looking to prove itself once again at the biggest event of the year.
Cloud Nine is going to need to prove that it is still one of North America’s best teams in DreamHacks next major.
Cloud 9 has the chance at a DreamHack title and a shot at Worlds, but it will need to come out on top to be considered the top team in the NA region.
Team SoloMitts Cloud 9 will be representing North America in Dreamhack Winter, and SKT will be coming out on the other side of the continent to compete in the upcoming DreamHack Invitational.SKTelecom will be playing in the DreamHacking event for the first time since DreamHack 2015, and they will be looking to make it out on a high note.
The newly formed SKTelecom T1 will be facing off with Fnatic for the second time this year, and if it can get past SKTele in the first match, it could be the only team in North America to advance to DreamHack.
Fnatic is one of Europe’s strongest teams in terms of the recent results, and while Cloud 9 and SKTele will need a strong showing to get a shot in the major tournament, they will have no problem going against some of the strongest teams around.
SKT and Cloud 9 are going up against some very good teams, and in the process of a lot happening, it is going a long way to determining who will be the one that advances.
Team Liquid will be in the spotlight this time around, as a new team is joining the tournament.
The current Cloud 9 roster is being replaced by a new one that includes former Cloud nine players and veteran junglers.
The two new rosters will face off in the opening match, which should be very exciting for fans of the new team.
The other two teams that could be at the front of the line to make the major are Fnatic and Team Dignitas.
Both teams have a strong history in competitive gaming, with both having qualified for DreamHack’s biggest tournament in 2016.
They will be fighting it out with the eventual winners of the European LCS Summer Playoffs.
The DreamHack events are very much in the hands of the teams competing, and these teams could really be the ones that make the biggest impact
