A deep dive into the list of players attending DreamHack Anaheim from the NA East region.


DreamHack Anaheim is shaping up to be a LAN tournament for the ages in competitive Fortnite. It will feature players across multiple competitive regions. The amount of talent from the NA East region alone could make for an outstanding tournament. Many of these players have accomplished a lot in their Fortnite careers. It’s worth noting that Solo World Cup Champion, Kyle “Bugha” Giersdorf, will not be in attendance in Anaheim for the Fortnite Open. Nevertheless, we have some of the best players from the NA East region competing for a piece of the $250K USD prize pool. A complete list of attendees will be at the end.

Nearly the entire Team SoloMid North American roster will be competing at the DreamHack Anaheim competition. We have Anthony “ZexRow” Colandro, Vinny “Vinny1x” Gilgan, Mack “MackWood” Aesoph, Malachi “Reverse2k” Greiner, Emad “Emad” Nasif and Jonah “Slappie” Mills. Of these five, Vinny, ZexRow and MackWood stand out individually from a competitive perspective. These three have competed together in multiple tournaments, including a second-place finish in the last Fortnite Champion Series tournament.

ZexRow has been steadily improving as a solo competitor with an eighth-place finish at the Australian Open Summer Smash and third place in the Elite Cup. Vinny’s accomplishments include a win at the ESL Katowice Royale tournament back in March of 2019. MackWood is an outstanding solo competitor with many significant Solo Cash Cup finishes to his credit. Keep a close eye on TSM throughout the Anaheim competition.

100 Thieves

As per usual, Davis “Ceice” McClellan and Hayden “Elevate” Krueger are attending another LAN event. Both players participated at the DreamHack Winter event back in December and the Australian Open Summer Smash just two weeks ago. Ceice finished in 25th at the Australian Open, whereas Elevate took 23rd. Both players are looking to follow-up their AO Summer Smash performance after some lackluster showings since the Season X Championship. Brandon “Klass” Weaver will also represent 100 Thieves at the DreamHack Anaheim Fortnite Open.

This list of attendees features some high-profile solo players. First and foremost, we have Cody “Clix” Conrad, who many recognize as the best box fighter in Fortnite. He’s won many tournaments in that format and also consistently competes in Solo Cash Cups. DreamHack Anaheim will be his first legitimate LAN tournament since last year’s TwitchCon. Clix has built his stream into an empire on its own, but he’s still a competitive player first. A stable placement here would go a long way for the World Cup double-qualifier.

Khanada

Leon “Khanada” Khim was relatively unknown before bursting onto the scene late in Season X. After Turner “Tfue” Tenney stepped away from his Season X trio, he joined up with Khanada, and the rest is history. This talented young player has won three Solo Cash Cup tournaments, all of which took place in Chapter 2 Season 1. Khanada’s consistency and mechanical skills should put him in an excellent position for Anaheim.

Vanguard Calculator

Season X Champion, Jonathan “Calculator” Weber will make his first LAN appearance since the Fortnite World Cup this weekend. Although a controversial figure in the scene, Calculator is undoubtedly an outstanding player. He played exceptionally well alongside ZexRow and MackWood in both FNCS tournaments. Calculator’s Solo Cash Cup placements are hit or miss, but this is the perfect opportunity to showcase his skills.

FaZe Dubs

FaZe Clan’s Danny “Dubs” Walsh has shown his stripes in nearly every format. This World Cup double-qualifier continues to play well through each passing season and meta change. Dubs possesses almost every aspect of a Fortnite player that one could hope for to be successful. His game sense is outstanding, and he adapts well to all situations. Solo Cash Cups are where Dubs has made his mark. He won the January 16th Contender’s Cash Cup, and never seems to fall outside the top-ten. His consistency, comprehension of competitive Fortnite and LAN experience make him a solid pick in Anaheim this weekend.

UnknownArmy

One of the best players over the last few months has been Dominick “UnknownArmy” Green. This infamous controller player occupies space in the minds of many rival NA East players. Unknown went on a tear in Chapter 2 Season 1, where he claimed four Solo Cash Cup victories. He also won the Chapter 2 Season 1 Fortnite Champion Series alongside Avery, Ronaldo and KEZ. Armed with his controller, Unknown is a seemingly unstoppable force. He will be looking to L2 his way to victory for the $30K USD grand prize.

Ghost Bizzle

The Fortnite fandom considered Timothy “Bizzle” Miller one of the best in the world back in early 2019. His win at the Secret Skirmish LAN event in February of last year solidified this thought. Bizzle went on to finish in 23rd place at the Fortnite World Cup after many pros predicted him to win. Since then, Bizzle has flown quietly under the radar while racking up decent Solo Cash Cup results. Representing Ghost Gaming, Bizzle’s showing at Anaheim could reaffirm his standing as one of the best solo players.

This group of players merely scratches the surface of what to expect this weekend in Anaheim. Any one of these NA East players could walk away with the $30K USD grand prize. We’ll have to wait and see how the tournament shakes out. Although DreamHack is not offering an official stream, players will be broadcasting the event from their setups on Twitch.
