DH Open Austin groups, schedule out
Official groups and a schedule for the DreamHack ZOWIE Open stop in Austin, Texas have been released.
Taking place from May 6-8, DreamHack ZOWIE Open Austin will feature eight teams battling for $100,000 in prize money at the Austin Convention Center, in what is DreamHack’s first ever tournament in North America.
