DreamHack Bucharest 2015 is right around the corner. The biggest DH festival to take place outside of Sweden, DreamHack Bucharest is now at its fifth edition and is getting ready to host the StarLadder StarSeries XII LAN playoffs and finals, at Sala Polivalentă, in Bucharest, April 24-26. DotaBlast will be there to cover the event and bring you all the latest headlines. Let’s get on the hype train!
The StarLadder StarSeries XII online qualifiers have come to an end, with all eight qualified teams now settled. Cloud 9, Alliance, Team Secret, Team Tinker, Invictus Gaming, ViCi Gaming, London Conspiracy, and Team Malaysia will attend the LAN playoffs and finals to be held at DreamHack Bucharest, in Romania, between April 24-26.
For the first time in the StarLadder StarSeries history, the LAN finals will leave the Cybersport Arena in Kiev, to be hosted at DreamHack Bucharest, April 24-26. The venue for the playoffs was changed amidst multiple frustrations and issues in the past regarding visas for traveling teams.
Roman Romantsov, CEO of StarLadder:
DreamHack Bucharest is a well-known event with a long history. And we are happy that our first ever European LAN-final will be held there. We quickly found common language with Dreamhack Romania organizers simply because we have the same goal – to bring the best possible experience to the Dota-fans and eSports community in general. We hope that all the fans will be pleased to come and watch the best teams competing each other accompanied by analysis from the best casters in the world.
The base prize pool of $80,000 has now reached a total amount of over $127,000, through community contributions.

Put together by ComputerGames.ro, DreamHack Bucharest is now at its fifth edition.
