September Dreamhack circuit announced with $250,000 up for grabs

The much anticipated Dreamhack event is exactly what we wanted to hear about amid an early season competitive “lull”

Dreamhack’s third iteration of the solo Fortnite tournament was just confirmed yesterday with additional information revealed

Last season, Coop proved that controller players were still a force to be reckoned with after coming first in NA-East. Kinzell and 4DRStorm won on Europe and NA-West for a respective bag of $ 16,000 and $ 4,000

$ 250,000 will be distributed between the three regions with the same prize distribution as the previous seasons

Tournament Scoring

The tournament scoring and timeline will match the previous iterations of Dreamhack Fortnite. This comes as a sigh of relief to many Fortnite pros who point towards the more precise placement scoring format as a benefit to competitive integrity. For those who need a refresher on the scoring:

Points:

  • 1st – 60

  • 2nd – 53

  • - Advertisement -

    3rd – 49

  • 4th – 47

  • 5th – 46

  • 50th – 1

  • Each Elimination: 5

Advancement

Dreamhack is a 3 stage event where the top 1500 players from Open qualifiers will advance to Semifinals. From Semis, 100 players will advance to the Finals for 6 custom games. Here’s a pretty visual on how the tournament will flow:

Sign up… before it’s too late

Dreamhack is an open tournament – meaning anyone can play. The only caveat is that you have to sign up in advance to reserve your entry in the event. If you forget to sign up before the first heat begins, you will not be allowed to play

Here is a direct link to the Dreamhack signup form

With Trios FNCS a seeming eternity away, having another major solo event is a good way to bridge the gap. Players are very fond of a consistency based event like Dreamhack; needless to say it was a smart move to make Dreamhack a monthly event
