In terms of HLTV’s world ranking of these teams, FURIA leads the pack at rank #7, followed by Outsiders at #16, Movistar Riders at #18, MIBR at #20 and GODSENT at #27. These are the teams most likely to win, with FURIA obviously being the favorite. Keep this in mind when we talk about betting later.
ESL Challenger at DreamHack Valencia features a prize pool of $100,000.00 which will be divided as follows:
In addition, the tournament winner will receive a spot in the ESL Pro League Conference Season 17 where the top 6 teams will get a spot in the ESL Pro League Season 17 – an S-tier tournament with $835,000.00 in prizes.
The ESL Challenger starts with a group stage where two teams of 4 will compete. In this, an opening match, a winner’s match, an elimination match and a decider’s match will take place. Opening matches and winner matches are played best of 1, while the elimination and decider matches are played best of 3. This is how it works for each group:
- The two winners from each opening match will face each other in a winner’s match to determine who wins the group.
- The two losers from each opening match will face each other in an elimination match to determine who is eliminated from the tournament.
- The two remaining teams (those that didn’t win or got eliminated) will play a third match to decide which of them will stay in the tournament and which will be eliminated.
In other words, from each group, two teams will move to the semifinals. All semifinal matches are played best of 3 and so is the grand finale.
The match schedule for ESL Challenger at DreamHack Valencia is as follows:
|Friday 1st of July||10:30 CEST||Group Stage Match|
