ESL revealed the groups and first matchups for ESL One Hamburg 2017. The Dota 2 Major is the last tournament to be played under the current 7.06f patch.
ESL One Hamburg 2017 will occur from October 26th to 29th at Barclaycard Arena, in Hamburg, Germany. A total of eight teams will fight for a share of the $1,000,000 prize and 1,500 Pro Circuit Points.
Team Liquid and Newbee received a direct invite, while the remaining ones had to earn a ticket to Germany via the regional qualifier. Unfortunately, HappyFeet had to withdraw due Visa issues, and have been replaced by Fnatic.
A representant of ESL explained on Reddit how they selected the substitute:
All teams have been split in groups of four. The invites have been placed in different groups - teams from the same region can’t be in the same group.
