Get your hands on DreamHacks StarCraft II Booths

It’s time for DreamHacks StarCraft II Player Booths to retire and now YOU have the chance to get them! DreamHack will sell our Player Booths at eBay.com and all money from the sales will go to a open standalone BYOC-tournament at DreamHack Summer 2012.

In March 2011, DreamHack built their first Player Booths to set-up Dreamhacks first dedicated StarCraft II-event ‘Stockholm Invitiational’ 12th of April 2011. It was a huge step for DreamHack then. We were very thrilled about it and we even released a movie with the creation of the booths.

Since them, DreamHack Champions like MC, HuK, DongRaeGu, HerO, Thorzain and many more have played their most important matches in the booths. If we sum-up how much we used them (over 100 matches) and how important they were to the development of our eSports brand, it’s probably the best investment we ever made.

Another great memory is when we realized that we couldn’t get the Booths into the event venue in Valencia when we hosted our first big event abroad – Valencia Invitational. Then our local partner and lovely friends at Canales Corporativos had to rent a crane to lift the booths up and down 35 metres. Everything to make sure the event run in time and the matches get played.

In 2012 DreamHack started to plan new booths, and in 2013 we’ll build our new Player Booths. But why just send them to the dump, when we can give them to our fans. Since we couldnt decide how to give them away we put up a auction at eBay – all money received will go to a open BYOC-tournament in StarCraft II at DreamHack Summer in june 2013.

HerO keeps his throne! http://www.dreamhack.se/dhw12/2012/11/24/hero-keeps-his-throne/ http://www.dreamhack.se/dhw12/2012/11/24/hero-keeps-his-throne/#comments Sat, 24 Nov 2012 22:22:05 +0000 redaktionendhs12 http://www.dreamhack.se/dhw12/?p=2910 Herowins

HerO keeps his throne!

This StarCraft II final displayed an inhouse battle between LiquidHerO and LiquidTaeJa. HerO won the previous tournament, keeping his title as the EIZO Open DreamHack Winter champion.

HerO managed to win the first three games and had every chance to bring the finals to an early end. By playing a solid fourth game, containing TaeJa inside main base and keeping the pressure up, he eventually forced a GG out of TaeJa.
