DreamHack Masters Stockholm 2018 will kick off on August 29. Unfortunately, the sniper from HellRaisers, Özgür "woxic" Eker, won't be able to join the guys at the event due to visa issues. His passport without a visa was issued with a 6-day delay, which didn't give us enough time to remedy the situation.
Our stand-in will be the 20-year-old Lithuanian nukkye, who plays for The Imperial. His latest big achievements include first place finishes at Copenhagen Games 2018 and DreamHack Open Summer 2018.
We’re doing our best to resolve this visa issue with Özgür. If the embassy provides him with an entry visa, then woxic will compete in the championship, even though he might miss a few matches.
DreamHack Masters Stockholm 2018 is the first tournament of the Masters series to take place in Stockholm, Sweden. Sixteen participants will compete for the title and a $250,000 prize pool from August 29 to September 2! Read more about the competition in our preview.
