First things first, if you're looking to enter the Fortnite Dreamhack Open, you'll have to get yourself to Sweden! Entry is open to everyone but you must have a LAN ticket to the Dreamhack event.

You cannot enter the Fortnite Dreamhack Open multiple times as you need to register your entry using the event ticket you purchased. Filling in an online form prevents multiple entries from taking place so make the most of your time in-game!
