Reynor A Small Fave to Win DH Masters Fall Europe

Regional action is returning to Starcraft 2, with DreamHack Masters Fall kicking off all around the world. Europe’s competition starts on July 28 and will feature all of the best players in the region!

As usual with DreamHack Masters events, there’s a lot at stake. Players are not only competing over the $74,000 prize pool, but also for a place at the global seasonal finals and all-important ESL Pro Tour points.

Make sure to check out our guide on How to Bet on Starcraft 2 and let’s take a look at the event in more detail.

Who’s Playing at DreamHack Masters Fall Europe?

The event is set to be a big one, with 32 players participating in over two weeks of SC2 action. This includes the top 16 from DreamHack Masters Summer, as well as 16 players yet to be determined from the open qualifiers.

However, we already know our key players, with stars like Reynor, Clem and Serral having secured their spots and entering as the biggest favorites. We’ll also see the likes of Elazer, ShowTime, Heromarine and uThermal – players who have challenged the best recently and have a solid chance of pulling off an upset.

When it comes to the event, we’ll see a usual DreamHack Masters format. Players are first split into four groups of eight, which are played out in a round-robin format (totaling to a whopping 28 best-of-threes per group!).

Then, four players advance from each group into the double-elimination playoffs where two losses mean elimination and the last player standing takes home the trophy. Overall, we’ll see well over 100 matches being played with the event really testing each player’s stamina.

Reynor Looks to Build on Summer Finals Success

Reynor enters the tournament in red-hot form, having taken home the DreamHack Masters Summer global finals on July 4.

At the event he overcame many of the best in the world, including two of the best Korean players, Rogue and Maru. His successes this year also include taking home the world championship, IEM Katowice, so it’s safe to say Reynor can be considered one of the best Starcraft players in the world at the moment, if not the best.

It’s difficult to see anyone beating him here and he deserves the title of favorite. However, this is Starcraft 2, where it’s rare to see players string together multiple tournament wins in a row.


Can Clem Bounce Back After Rough Run?

Despite Reynor’s impressive form, Clem is actually the only player to stop him recently, defeating him in the European edition of DreamHack Masters Summer.

However, the global edition of the event was an absolute disaster for Clem, who crashed out in last place and failed to win a single match in what was considered to be the easiest group.

Such a devastating result is never easy to handle and it does leave a few question marks surrounding the young Frenchman. Will he crumble under the pressure once again, or can he return to his winning ways?

What Happened to Serral?

Serral was the first non-Korean player ever to dominate the world of SC2. He won practically everything he could win in 2019, setting records and breaking the then standard Korean dominance.

He continued showing strong results and winning events in 2020, joined by fellow Europeans Clem and Reynor at the top of the world.

However, 2021 has been rough for the Finnish superstar. He’s played at nine events so far this year and his only notable result was second place at a last-chance qualifier at the start of the year. This event is the perfect place for Serral to return to the top – but will we see the dominant player once again?
