Countdown to Doors Open:

BYOC Tournaments: Games and Sign-Ups Revealed with +$20k in Cash Prizes

With the festival just a month away, it’s time to get serious about what you’re planning to play

It’s a puny $20,000 in total winnings, don’t get all emotional about it.

Yup, we’ve got the full lineup of the titles for the BYOC Tournaments right here, but I’m not sure you’re gonna like that we’re also giving out cash prizes. Another bummer: the fact that you can bring your own computer to DreamHack Atlanta to hang out and plug into a giant LAN with your friends and cool strangers.

Whatever, I know you love this, but people are all talk online. It only matters when it counts: playing in person, on a LAN, with cash prizes, and the title of DreamHack Atlanta BYOC champion on the line. And do not hold the fact that I ACCIDENTALLY rhymed the subheading of this post over my head.

Done trash talking you since you read this far. If you’ve already bought your BYOC LAN seat, then you don’t need to spend another buck to participate in the tournaments. And yeah, you can enter in as many as you like, but don’t get a big head (nope, that’s not trash talk, it’s friendly advice). You’ve taken the time to hone your skills, so go grab your crew and come compete!

Check out the 14 tournament titles below. And don’t miss the deadline, sign your ass up today.
