DreamHack Anaheim is underway, and heat one produced the first 200 semifinalists.


Fortnite players flooded the Anaheim Convention Center for day one of the DreamHack Anaheim Fortnite Open. Nearly 1,200 competitors from all across the globe put their skills to the test. Although DreamHack did not provide an official stream, many players broadcasted their gameplay and others hosted viewing parties. As the day drew to a close, we saw many familiar names atop the leaderboard. Keep in mind that only the top 200 players from each heat will qualify for the semi-finals. Amidst alleged fires and internet dropouts, let’s see who advanced on day one of DreamHack Anaheim.

100 Thieves’ newest member, MrSavage, played out of his mind on day one of the DreamHack Anaheim competition. The fifteen-year-old Norwegian phenom achieved 518 points over the maximum of 10 matches. This performance included two Victory Royale and an average of 3.8 eliminations per game. Arguably NA West’s best controller player, wavyjacob, spent much of the day either in the lead or contending for it. He managed 497 points and one Victory Royale across nine matches. Plalism rounded out the top three with a total of 494 points.

Other notable names in the top ten include NA West players, Thomuss and Liquid Riversan, and Duo World Cup runner-up, Wolfiez. The top 200 qualified for the semi-finals out of the first heat. Nearly every region saw a player advance to the next round.

Despite some minor setbacks, DreamHack Anaheim brought an impressive amount of professional Fortnite players out for the $30K USD grand prize. On day two, another 200 players will advance to the semifinals. Those 400 semifinalists will then widdle themselves down to 100 for the finals. Qualified players from day one can rest assured that they have secured a spot in the semis, but there is still a long way to go.
