Fortnite Dreamhack Tournament Structure

Dreamhack run tournaments are going to be a little bit different than the official ones run by Epic’s competitive branch. Dreamhack’s point distribution is as follows:

  • 1st - 60
  • 2nd - 53
  • 3rd - 49
  • 4th - 47
  • 5th - 46
  • ...
  • 50th - 1
  • Elimination gives 5 points

That means that the Dreamhack tournaments are going to reward players for scoring eliminations more than typical. Surviving to place higher won’t mean much when scoring an elimination nets you five times as many points. Expect to see players who know how to control offensive scenarios place better than those who rely strongly on defensive strategies.

Additionally, the tournament will be divided into two heats, followed by a semi final and grand final. 750 players from each heat advance to the semis while only 100 players from the semis advance to the Grand Finals. Expect the competition to be fierce, and best of luck to all players.
