The Cash Cups Extras are only open to the top 132 teams from the previous week's Cash Cup. So you will need to put in a strong performance there to be eligible to enter. The Season 8 schedule for Cash Cups is yet to be released but we expect it soon once the pre-season event has concluded.

Season 7 Recap

The Season 7 Dreamhack Open took place in mid-August and was one of the best tournaments when it comes to participation. EL L2R2 and TNG RISE took home the corn in the NA East event. For Europe, EVOZA STORMYRITE and GAMBIT TOOSE were the winners.
