DreamHack ASTRO Open: Tours 2017 - Tricked to attend in lieu of Gambit
DreamHack have announced that Tricked eSport will replace Gambit Esports at DreamHack Tours 2017.
DreamHack Tours 2017 is set to take place on May 6th-8th in Tours, France. Kazakhstan Gambit Esports were one of the six invited teams for the $100,000 event but as per the organiser's announcement, as a result of their flight delay coming back from DreamHack Austin 2017, Abay "HObbit" Khasenov was unable to obtain a Schengen visa.
With Gambit out of the event, their spot is given to Danish side Denmark Tricked eSport who finished the European qualifier second. Tricked have been assigned to the same group as Gambit - Group B, where they will be facing France G2 Esports, France Team EnVyUs and Europe HellRaisers.
With this last-minute replacement, new groups for DreamHack Tours 2017 look like:
DreamHack Tours 2017 will be one of the most prestigious events Tricked have ever attended. The Danish roster has been performing well in recent months with their latest achievements being semi-final exits at Danish Championship 2017, Copenhagen Games 2017 and securing promotion from ESEA Main to ESEA Premier.
