2021 is now ready for the Fortnite DreamHack competition, opening the doors for everyone ready to compete for the crown. In addition to all content from Fortnitemares throughout October, Epic Games also resurrected one of its most successful tournament forms in the fight of the royal game. DreamHack is an opportunity for all of you to participate in a Fortnite competition, extending the participants’ pool significantly in each area.
We have your guidebook to the entire tourney here, such as when DreamHack begins, what the regulations for the event are, and what awards can be collected.
Fortnite DreamHack is an open-entry competition basically. Every player can participate on competitive days to test whether they can reach the finish line. You don’t need to submit some Hype score (mostly your competitive standing).
It is an excellent opportunity to gather together the users for a lot more random competition. You can get paired to pro players as well, so the competition is really on.
Fortnite DreamHack starts on the 7th and finishes on the 10th of October. It’s a pair competition, therefore, you will have to enter with a teammate.
The first phase is open skills, which may be entered by anybody without respect to Hype. After that, the top two teams go onto the half-finals. The number of teams varies from area to region. During the 3-hour time window, each couple can play up to 10 games.
After the Grand Final, there are the top 50 duos in the semi-finals. Six consecutive games will be played at predetermined times, with a new game beginning every 35 minutes.
