Twelve tournament spots are dedicated to Pro League teams on a first come, first served basis (all regions are open to sign up). Meanwhile, the top four teams from the open BYOC qualifier will fill the remaining spots. The BYOC qualifier is open for any team to join; the only requirements being a five-man lineup, valid DreamHack Austin BYOC tickets per team member (which can be found at the ticket page) and of course - a strong competitive spirit!
Congratulations to Millenium, our Rainbow 6 Winners!

BYOC Qualifier Registration
The open BYOC registration is available on a first come, first served basis, which means that as soon as the 16 spots are filled - the tournament is full. Teams that register for the BYOC Qualifier are required to enter their BYOC ticket code for all team members as well as be verified by DreamHack.
Teams are to confirm their attendance before 12:40 pm CT on June 1st on-site at the esport crew desk. Failing to confirm attendance will result in the team being marked as a “no show” and will automatically forfeit their spot.
Teams that were unable to register before registration closed are welcome to notify the esport crew about their attendance on-site on June 1st to be added to a waiting list in case a team is dropped from the tournament. Please visit the esport crew directly when arriving at DreamHack Austin to be added.
A team’s registration is complete once the team is contacted by the tournament organizer via email, confirming that all information provided by the team is correct.
