Natus Vincere and Heroic will be joining the French duo of G2 Esports and Team EnVyUs at DreamHack Tours the organization revealed today. The No. 3 and 16 teams in the WWG CSGO Team Rankings will be traveling to the duo's home turf of France where the event will be taking place at the Vinci Congress Center from May 6 to 8 and offer a $100,000 prize pool with the winner walking away with $50,000.
Na'Vi has looked like a solid squad as of late after going through the usual highs and lows associated with the five-man roster. Na'Vi is 7-3 in its last ten maps, however, we know the real test for the team will be upcoming LAN events. Heroic is flipped with a 3-7 record in its last ten, not following up its IEM Katowice performance very well. To be fair, however, five of those map losses came against No. 1 Astralis and No. 6 North, it's Danish brethren.
Team EnVyUs has done more than expected. Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom's squad has shown they will not lay down and let G2 take the title of best French Counter-Strike team. EnVyUs is currently ranked five spots higher than G2 in the WWG CSGO Team Rankings. EnVyUs has slipped a little as of late, starting off on a nice streak of results, EnVyUs has started to slow down and take some losses that could see it drift downward.
Na'Vi and G2 will both be competing at StarLadder i-League StarSeries season three finals in Kiev, Ukraine, ahead of the event while EnVyUs will attend the CS_Summit and Heroic, DreamHack Austin.
The group stage will consist of two groups of four teams each. The teams will be competing in a double elimination group format with best-of-one matches being played up until the decider matches will be played as best-of-three matches. The top two teams from each group will move on to the playoffs.
The playoffs will be a single elimination bracket with all matches being best-of-three.
