RE: DreamHack Winter 2013 Report
a few numbers for the statistics:

almost 200 people got to play against Team Dignitas! Cool

we played nearly 70 rounds of qualifiers (x8 players) Cool

the rest of the time, we averaged 5-6 seats taken for play. Cool
no idea though, how many different people this makes, but we served
well over 1000 players in the Intel/Alien Arena booth! Cool
