Fortnite: K1nzell Wins Europe August DreamHack Online Open
Fortnite veteran k1nzell wins the August DreamHack Online Open for Europe in impressive fashion.
One hundred of the best European Fortnite players went to war in the second monthly DreamHack Online Open tournament. Last month, Polish player teeq barely qualified for the semi-finals and went on to win the inaugural competition. This time around, European players yielded the highest prize pool payout yet again. Like the NA West and NA East regions, Europe saw 750 players advanced out of heats one and two into the semi-finals. From there, the top 100 players after three hours and a maximum of ten matches moved into the Grand Finals.
Some of Europe’s best players reached the final session, including FaZe Mongraal, NRG benjyfishy, BL Anas, MCES Andilex, BL Hen and many others. As the tournament closed, Fortnite World Cup Solo Finalist k1nzell reigned supreme, clutching the victory in his final match.
