We are happy to announce that DreamHack Community Clash is back! On May 21-22 & 28-29th, we will be hosting an online tournament for North American teams. Signups for this tournament are now live! There is also another announcement on its way sometime soon, so stay tuned…
This is the event thread for this tournament sponsored by DreamHack and organised by EssentialsTF. Details about the event will be posted here when available, so any questions place any questions here. We will try to answer all questions promptly. I would encourage any teams interested to check out the tournament pages which contains all the relevant details about the event, but also keep an eye on our twitter page and Clash.TF for updates:
All matches are played using the Unity Cup Config (30min match/5min round timers; Winlimit 5; Continuous Overtime - +1 rule; Bo3 KOTH) and RGL Whitelists.
Up to 6 Teams will make up our invite groups. If there are enough teams (aka more than 6) that want to play Invite we will run Invite Qualifiers from 16-20th May.
Structure of the qualifiers will be small round robin groups which you can play and schedule freely within the week prior to signups closing.
