DreamHack, one of the world’s largest LAN party producers, has announced a new Fortnite competition. We are talking about a significant event featuring a prize pool of $ 250k.

Details of the Fortnite tournament

The big Fortnite event, organized by DreamHack, will occur in San Diego at the next DreamHack Open. The date to hold it is scheduled from April 7 to 9.

We can say that this is a special event, as any player can participate in the tournament. In addition, he will be fighting for a share of the $250k prize pool.

The details of how the prizes will look are unknown, but surely the winner will get a big part of the money.

This year the tickets for the event cost $109, so it is likely to be worth the money. We give you an example of what happened last year in the winter event; all participants received money, and the player who received the least money took $200. The grand prize that year was $12k.

All Fortnite players can participate in the event

The requirement to participate in the 2023 DreamHack Open is to have a ticket and your PC to play. This year, there is a noticeable improvement in the tournament over last year’s; in 2022, only $100 was at stake, and now more than double, that is at stake.

With Fortnite’s popularity growing daily, the events being held are getting bigger and bigger. All fans of the title are looking forward to a second World Cup.

Format of the event

The event consists of four elimination rounds, where zero-build duos play. Each of these rounds will have a duration of three hours. During this time, players are free to play as many games as they choose.

The best 100 duos from each elimination round will make it to the finals. The best 25 teams will advance.

Points per game

The points each duo receives depend on the position they finish in the game.

For example:

  • 1st place: 60 points
  • 2nd place: 53 points
  • 3rd place: 49 points
  • Each elimination: 3 points

Calendar of the event

  • On April 7, the first two elimination rounds will take place.
  • Then, the next two elimination rounds will occur on the following day, April 8.
  • On April 9, the grand final will take place.

Rumors of a possible partnership

With the announcement of this event, rumors of a possible Gamers8 Esports partnership with the event organizers have surfaced. These rumors arise after several mysterious messages they have exchanged on Twitter. However, this information is not confirmed; it is just fan speculation for the moment.
