Results from day one of the DreamHack Open featuring Fortnite.
The time has arrived for DreamHack’s first of multiple monthly online tournaments featuring a $250,000 prize pool spread across three major competitive regions. Players in Europe and NA East have the chance to qualify through to the Grand Finals with hopes of earning a piece of the money at stake.
Similar to offline events in the past, each competition will feature two open heats. The top 250 players per heat will secure a spot in the semi-finals. From there, 500 players will narrow down to 100 for the Grand Finals. An important note to keep in mind is that players can participate in all regions. Some notable names will participate in the semi-finals of both Europe and NA East.
With the open qualifiers in the rear-view, let’s take a look at which players will compete in the semi-finals tomorrow across all three competitive regions.
