The 2013 DreamHack SteelSeries Counter Strike: Global Offensive Championship or simply DreamHack Winter 2013 was the first Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Major Championship to be sponsored by Valve. The competition was held during the Winter 2013 DreamHack digital festival at the Elmia Exhibition and Convention Centre in Jönköping, Sweden. Six invitees joined ten qualifiers to form the sixteen team event. Community funding helped to build the US$250,000 prizepool.[1] The tournament had a peak 145,000 concurrent viewers on twitch.tv and the in-game viewing client.[2]

Format[edit]

Six teams – Astana Dragons, compLexity Gaming, VeryGames, Clan-Mystik, Fnatic, and Team iBuyPower – were automatically invited to participate in the tournament.

In addition to those six teams, ten other teams qualified through various tournaments and qualifiers. For instance, Ninjas in Pyjamas were eligible for the tournament because it won the DreamHack Summer 2013 tournament; Copenhagen Wolves qualified after it won EMS One Fall 2013; LGB eSports qualified through an online qualifier; and Reason Gaming qualified through the BYOC qualifier. All of these qualifiers made up the last ten teams for the tournament.

Teams will be split up into four groups. All group matches are best of a. The highest seed will play the lowest seed in each group and the second and third seeds will play against each other. The winner of those two matches will play to determine which team moves on to the Playoffs; the loser of that match will play another match against the winner of the two losing teams. The loser of the lower match is eliminated from the tournament. The last two teams will play each other and the winner of that match moves on to the playoffs.

The playoffs bracket consists of eight teams, two from each group. All of these matches are a best of three, single elimination format. Teams advance in the bracket until a winner is decided.
