The Rocket League DreamHack MONTREAL 2019 was held a few days ago, and everyone absolutely enjoyed it. The tournament was held for three days, from September 7th till 9th, and we got to see some amazing matches during it. Around 32 teams who secured a spot in the tournament earlier faced off against each other at the Olympic Stadium of Montreal, Canada. The tickets for the tournament were available through Bring Your Own Computer.
The Three Days of The Event
Day one of the tournament featured the group stage, where the 32 teams were divided into four groups. Each group featured a total of 8 teams, and only 4 teams made it to the second stage. For those wondering, this tournament followed the same double-elimination format as the rest of the Pro Circuit events. All of the matches were best of 5 and top 4 teams from each group advanced to Day 2.
Day two then began, and we saw the top 16 teams from the group stage. These 16 teams faced off against each other in a brand-new bracket. Teams were split into 2 groups with 8 teams each. Day 2 also followed a double-elimination format, with all matches being best of 5. Top 4 teams from each group advanced to the Playoff stage.
On Day 3, the Playoff Stage was held. 8 teams that advanced from day 2 faced off against each other in a single-elimination format. The Quarterfinals were best of 5, while the Semifinals and the Grand Finals were best of 7. Through the Semifinals, The Peeps and G2 Esports managed to make it to the finals. The two then faced off against each other during the Finals, where The Peeps managed to defeat G2 Esports with a total of 4 wins.
