DreamHack Atlanta Registration Update

OP Tashi

Hey everyone, Tashi here with an update on registration for this weekend’s event. We’ve been hard at work with ESL to address concerns that arose this morning, and I want to thank everyone for their patience while we worked to resolve these issues. Originally the tournament was capped at 64 open bracket teams with a wait list for teams/players who registered after the cap was reached. The tournament cap will now be lifted, allowing any and all teams who check-in on time to enter the tournament. There are important details that go along with this, so please continue reading if you’re competing this weekend.

While we’re glad to be able to remove the cap, we also need to ensure the tournament will be ran smoothly and end at a reasonable time. Because of this, depending on how many teams check-in, some rounds may feature Best of 3 matches as in the past before advancing to Best of 5.
  • 64 teams or fewer: All matches will be Best of 5 as planned
  • 64+ teams: The first two rounds in both Winner’s and Loser’s brackets will be Best of 3
  • 96+ teams: The first four rounds in both Winner’s and Loser’s brackets will be Best of 3
Please continue reading for more important details:
  • As communicated via email, teams will be able to check-in early on Thursday from 9AM to 6PM in the Walnut Room (Level M3 in the North Tower) at the Omni hotel across from the venue.
  • On Friday, standard check-in time will be from 8AM to 10AM. Once check-in has concluded, teams will no longer be allowed into the bracket and rosters will be considered locked.
  • As a reminder, teams with HCS points looking to swap out a player must submit their new roster on MillennialEsports.gg by Wednesday 11:59PM PT.
  • Registered players will receive emails from ESL over the course of the next 24 hours with all of the above details, as well as schedule and tournament handbook.
We’ve already begun discussions with ESL on an improved registration process for DreamHack Denver later this year, and will be communicating details as soon as we’re able to. Thank you again for your patience, and we can’t wait for this event to kick off. Best of luck to all teams competing!
What about FFA players?
Should we also expect an email within 24 hours?
