Today we are excited to share the format for all qualifiers leading up to the DreamHack PUBG Showdown, sponsored by Monster Energy and CORSAIR, that will take place during DreamHack Austin 1-3rd June 2018.
The DreamHack PUBG Showdown will feature teams from Europe, North America, South America and one more TBA region. In addition, teams that do not qualify during the online stage will have the chance to qualify through a BYOC qualifier that will take place at DreamHack Austin on June 1st. The slot distribution is as follows:
|EU Qualifier ||5 |
|NA Qualifier ||5 |
|SA Qualifier ||1 |
|BYOC Qualifier ||4 |
|TBA ||1 |
Total teams on LAN
There will not be any direct invites to the LAN so all teams will need to earn their slots in the competition.
For the NA and EU regions there will be one open qualifier per region. Depending on your placement you will earn the chance to play one or both of the closed qualifiers in your region. Round of 32 is the last round with two simultaneous lobbies with team 1-4 advancing to both closed qualifiers. Teams 5-7 advance to closed qualifier #2. More information about this split can be found in the closed qualifier section. The tournament will be played on Erangel only.
