DreamHack loves modding and the beauty in a custom built PC with personality and unique looks & features. Therefore we are hosting our Case Mod Championship with two different classes, both for the modding elite in Master Class and Open Class which is for all the aspiring modders out there.
Master Class is with invited modders and pre-selected contestants based from an online application, while the Open Class is where anyone can participate with a pre-built system. It’s not required to build a unique system from scratch for this competition, but some alterations has to be made to the pre-built system.
On Sunday the contestants from the Master Class will display their systems and mingle in the Meet & Greet Hall C area. At the same time we host evaluation, qualifications, registration and judging for the Open Class. The time window for registration in Open Class is 120 min.
