On March 11-12, our Counter-Strike team is back on the server playing the IEM Dallas 2023 Europe Open Qualifier 1.

Open Qualifiers #1 and #2 will each send the top 2 teams to the IEM Dallas Europe Closed Qualifier, where OG, fnatic, Cloud9, and Spirit are waiting. A double elimination Bo3 system will find two winners to qualify for the main tournament, IEM Dallas 2023.

At the main event, ten teams have already secured their spot:

  • G2
  • Heroic
  • Liquid
  • FaZe
  • Outsiders
  • Complexity
  • MOUZ
  • ENCE
  • Evil Geniuses

That leaves six spots to be filled ahead of the event start. One team will be invited based on their ESL ranking, two from the European closed qualifier, and one from the South American, North American, and Oceania closed qualifiers.

IEM Dallas has a prize pool of $250.000 and is played from Dallas, Texas, between May 29 - June 4, 2023.
