Members of the CS:GO community have voiced their concern over the minuscule crowd in attendance for day one of the DreamHack Masters Las Vegas playoffs in the MGM Grand.
The first Quarter Final matchup of the tournament was between Gambit and North. It promised to be an exciting game and had over 100,000 viewers on the primary English Twitch stream before even starting.
Unfortunately, these thousands of stream viewers were given an idea of just how small the crowd in attendance for the event was as the two teams walked out. There appears to be less than 100 people in an arena that should hold thousands.
This is not the first time that a DreamHack event has struggled to fill seats for CS:GO. The DreamHack Cluj-Napoca Major in particular had a fairly sparse crowd. It is also not the first time that a large North American event has struggled to produce a crowd to rival the likes of ESL One Katowice or Cologne.
DreamHack will surely be hoping to see more spectators in attendance as the playoffs continue or their first event at the MGM Grand will probably be their last.
