With Dreamhack 2012 here and bigger than ever, we wanted to give fans that can’t make it to the event all the information they need to follow the action this weekend.

Day one, 16 June 2012, features a BYOC qualifier tournament of over 64 teams competing for the final four slots in the main event. We’ll be lightly covering the action and providing article-based updates from this site, and you can also tune into CLG.eu and Millenium's channels, where they'll be streaming their games. The tournament begins at 18:00 local Swedish time (9:00 AM Pacific) Saturday.

Day two and three are the main event: eight teams from across Europe battle for $40,000 and circuit points to qualify for the Season Two regionals. Four of the teams, Moscow Five, Absolute Legends (formerly exHCL), Curse.eu (formerly Absolute Legends), and FnaticRaidCall, qualified online, and the other four will qualify via the BYOC tournament. The tournament begins with two group stages, best of one, and moves into a best of three, single-elimination semi-final. Matches will be casted by Joe Miller, Deman, David “Phreak” Turley, and Rivington III. Matches begin each day at 10:00 local Swedish time (1:00 AM Pacific).

We’ll be sure to update this site if anything changes, as well as continuous coverage with photos and articles from the event. Enjoy the show summoners!

As of now, here's the schedule of matches. We'll fill these in with final teams once the BYOC tournament has concluded. (All times are local to Sweden, which is +2 GMT.)
