Europe’s best Duos kicked off the Grand Finals on November 8.

European talent had their moment in the spotlight first up in the month of November. A whole week ahead of NA East and a fortnight ahead of NA West, Europe’s finest battled it out for $82,550 USD.

Many familiar named dropped into the Grand Finals, though a newly formed Duo closed out the win. German player ‘Vadeal’ and Switzerland’s own ‘Noahreyli’ took a commanding lead in the November event. Not only did they finish in first place, but they did so with an enormous 48 point gap over the second-best team.

November DreamHack Open format

Fortnite DreamHack OpenDreamHack
A look at how the DreamHack Open unfolds each month.

While previous months focused on Solo competition, November is entirely focused on Duos. It all kicked off with two open qualifiers early in the month. From this stage, 500 Duos made their mark and punched their tickets for the next stage.

That number was soon dwindled down, however. Only 50 teams could advance through the Semis and into the Grand Finals. After three hours and a maximum of 10 lobbies, those 50 Duos were all locked in.

The Grand Final itself drops all 50 Duos into six consecutive lobbies. Bucking the ordinary point system, eliminations in this Open are worth five points each. Finishing in the top spot awards 55 points, while placements all the way down to the 25th spot still awards a little bonus.
