Following the recent Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Nordic Championship by Dreamhack, Activision and Astro Gaming that saw Team Menace emerge victorious as champions of the region, we now have confirmation that a show match will take place at Dreamhack Summer.
Dreamhack Summer takes place in Sweden later this month, from June 13th through to June 16th. Team EnVy have been invited to participate in a show match versus Nordic Champions Team Menace at the event itself, set to take place on June 15th, with streaming taking place via Deamhack's official Twitch.tv channel.
Dreamhack's official statement said the following.
"DreamHack in collaboration with Activision and Astro Gaming are proud to announce Team Menace from Finland as the “DreamHack Call of Duty® Nordic Champions.” The DreamHack Call of Duty® Championship brought together the best players from across the Nordics. In the end the four team finalists went head-to-head in the Monster Energy® DreamHack Studios in Stockholm for a chance to claim the title for their country. Team Menace showed advanced tactics and managed to take down Barrage Esports from Sweden, Team Denmark from Denmark and Gamerleague from Norway in the finals. Now Team Menace will soon face-off against the international pro-team Team EnvyUS in an intense show game streamed live from DreamHack Summer on the 15th of June at 12:00 on Xbox One. The show match will be live streamed worldwide on the DreamHack Official Twitch channel."
Nameless, professional player for Team Kaliber and EnVy alimni took to Twitter today to announce that he would be representing Team EnVy as a substitute during the show match, due to a starting player being unable to make it that weekend. He said the following.
"Heading to Sweden with nV for Dreamhack on Thursday. I will miss America and have no service again, my body is ready."
