Dreamhack Valencia is just around the corner, and there’s two pieces of news that interested parties should know before the event starts. First, is the announcement that NaNiWa will not be playing as originally expected. Johan Lucchesi is opting to remain in Korea to continue to train as opposed to traveling all of the way back to Spain to compete. In his place will be Ilyano “Stephano” Satouri. This will be one of Stephano’s last tournaments, as he has announced that he will be retiring at the end of the year to attend school, having taken two years off to pursue professional gaming.

Also, the groups have been announced. There is an open component to the format, and players will compete on the first day. Those that advance in the first round of group stages will then face professional players in the second set of group stages which takes place on the second day.
