Time to make a move! For the fifth and final time, the Dreamhack Summer 2015 Qualifiers will be held, and one last team will have the chance to join this prestigious event in June. These four teams have already qualified: [Mint]Fresh, [SynC]Sync eSports, [Null]Nullstone Gaming and [Rea]Reason Gaming. And as you can see, there's one of the top 5 missing: [BMG]BadMonkeyGaming. So pressure is on for them to finally seal the deal and gain entrance to DHS this weekend. That pressure might just be a factor because it would be extremely embarrassing for the HoN Tour Season 3 World Champions to not even qualify for that. Let's take a look at the matches ahead of them and the other competitors this weekend before it starts:

[BMG]BadMonkeyGaming versus [B1G]Brilliant Gaming
As mentioned before, BMG is under heavy pressure to win this weekend, otherwise it will be a disaster for them. But finally there is some good news for them, as they did well this week in the Deadeye Bounty League, where they got a walkover win against Team Disband and just last weekend they finally made it all the way to the last round in Qualifier #4. So a morale boost as well as plenty of motivation are there. Now they just have to go through the bracket. And standing in their way first will be Brilliant Gaming, the team that qualified for this last Qualifiers just last week in the 5v5 Cup. They have a monumental task ahead of them, because even though they aren't exactly unknowns, several players have played in Gold Division before, BMG are prepared now and will not underestimate any team. They have learned from their mistakes and it's time to make up for them. Overall BMG will most likely roll over their opponents in this first match, with only a slight chance of Brilliant Gaming being able to stand against them.

[MAR]Me Are Rus versus [Ogr]Shrek is Love
A clash of replacement teams will this be: Both the Rus and the Ogres have joined the Qualifiers just recently and so far they haven't been able to distinguish themselves, as they dropped out or were kicked out in the first round. But now it is finally time for at least one of them to smell the air of the second round and possibly be a thorn in BMGs side. Since Me Are Rus did not even play last weekend due to having to forfeit, it will be even harder for them to get back into it, while Shrek is Love are quite motivated to win and move here, so expect the Ogres to get rough right away and clobber their way to the second round.

[DsBn]DsBn versus [SolC]The Solaire Club
This should be an interesting match later on Saturday evening. The Club has had only some mild success in the DEBL so far and they have not advanced to the second round in the Qualifiers so far, but now that all the big teams are already qualified or far, far away in the bracket, this may be their chance to at least gain some ground for once. And for that to happen, they need to play and win against a team that has been struggling these last few days, to say the least: Team Disband. DsBn advanced to the second round last week and almost defeated Reason Gaming there, but in the following DEBL match on Tuesday, they were swept away by BadMonkeyGaming for good and forfeited their Friday match, as they did not see a chance to advance in the DEBL anyways. And now the last chance to qualify for Dreamhack Summer is at hand and they seem pretty unstable once more. The Solaire Club may use this to their advantage, they played well in the past and may have learned enough to finally take this. Be ready for a tough match!

[TLOS]Team Grief versus [Who]Team Who
The rematch of Qualifier #3, the two "Teams" are back to play against each other once more. Both have learned since then and while Team Grief has been in the second round of the Qualifiers twice since, Team Who got some practice in the Dead Eye Bounty League where they almost defeated Reason Gaming on Thursday in an extremely close match. Both teams are in a good position to go even further this weekend and reach the final round, as the lack of big teams in the bracket actually makes them the strong teams. Team Grief is probably a bit stronger still and will go into this match as favourite, but never count Team Who out, they may struggle to win 3 games in BO5 matches against top teams, but this is only BO3 and Team Grief is not exactly the best team out there yet. Match of the day right here, get your snacks ready!

And that's the matchups for Saturday. [BMG]BadMonkeyGaming versus [B1G]Brilliant Gaming and [MAR]Me Are Rus versus [Ogr]Shrek is Love will start at 12:00 EDT | 18:00 CEST, followed by [DsBn]DsBn versus [SolC]The Solaire Club and [TLOS]Team Grief versus [Who]Team Who at 15:00 EDT | 21:00 CEST. And of course Honcast will cover these matches live, so make sure to tune in on time, it's going to be another amazing HoN weekend for sure! Good Luck and Have Fun to all teams!
