Results from the semi-finals of the inaugural DreamHack Online Open featuring Fortnite.
Day two of the first-ever DreamHack Open featuring Fortnite is in the books. Yesterday, tens of thousands of Fortnite players went through the rigor that was open qualifiers. To qualify, participants needed around 400 points across ten matches or three hours, whichever came first. Although the competition was undoubtedly steep, several top professional players had little trouble securing a position in the semi-finals.

Professional players and relative unknowns had the same goal in mind, qualify. With all that said, let’s take a look at which players from Europe and NA East punched themselves a ticket to the finals.
