A few days ago, the details of the BYOC (Bring Your Own Computer) section of the event were revealed for DreamHack Valencia, which takes place in under a month on July 12th-14th. Sixteen teams will compete for their share of the $50,000 prize pool as well as a spot at the upcoming Paris Major.
Before the event, twelve teams from the Pro League and Challenger League have been invited to compete. At the event, they will meet up with the four winners of the BYOC open tournament, which will take place the day prior to the main tournament. For more details on the event and its format, read here. Today, those twelve invited teams have been revealed by DreamHack.

As expected, the tournament will have a majority of European teams, but the foreign inclusions of Rogue and Ninjas in Pajamas will give them a strong challenge, and possibly set things up for a similar upset as had happened at DreamHack Austin.
