Eight teams will fight for the six spots available for the LAN playoffs.

With the open qualifiers finished where the reformed 4Clovers&Lepricorn emerged victorious, the group stage is ready to start today. Eight teams will fight in one of the largest European Leagues for the six spots available for the LAN playoffs.

4Clover&Lepricorn, the winners of open qualifiers  are joining the seven directly invited teams and are now placed in a  in a round robin, two games series group stage  to determine which six teams will advance into to the LAN playoffs that will be held at Dreamhack Winter 2015 in Jönköping, Sweden between November 26-29.

Participating teams:

  • Russia Virtus.Pro
  • Russia Team Empire
  • Russia Vega Squadron
  • Sweden Ninjas in Pyjamas
  • Sweden Alliance
  • Europe Monkey Freedom Fighters
  • Europe Monkey Business
  • Europe 4Clover&Lepricorn

From the participating teams, Virtus.Pro are the defending champions and they can be considered the main favorites without a shadow of a doubt after their performance at The International 5. To make sure they can defend their DreamLeague title they will firstly need to secure the top six group stage placement.

Vega Squadron are already preparing their luggage for ESL One New York, which place them slightly ahead of  Alliance, Empire, NiP and MFF who are still looking for some results as none of them have managed to qualify to any of the upcoming tournaments.

At the same time there is no doubt that one of the most successful newly formed teams are (monkey) Business who grabbed the qualifier spot for MLG World Finals while the reshuffled 4Clover&Lepricorn roster have won the first Elimination Mode tournament.

The talent panel for DreamLeague Season 4 is welcoming back Sheever in the host chair assisted by Shane as co-host while Draskyl and ODpixel will be League’s commentators.
