DreamHack Winter 2013 to feature $30,000USD Prize Pool

DreamHack. For HoN fans, there is simply no other word like it. The emotions and memories of unforgettable tournaments - the epic stories, the legendary players. DreamHack is a sacred place for HoN, and now, Newerth ventures to the Arena once more.

For the eighth time, teams from around the globe will travel to Sweden to compete for the title of DreamHack Champion. Some challengers are known - battle hardened veterans, legends in their own right - but for others, this may be where their story truly begins. Five teams are decided, but still five more must prove their worth.

Enter the Nordic Online Qualifiers and attempt to secure one of three qualifying spots to the DreamHack main event. With teams like Denial eSports and Reason Gaming in the mix the competition will be more fierce than ever. If you can make it through one of HoN's strongest regions then you might just have what it takes to compete at DreamHack.

The final two challengers will be decided by the trial that is the BYOC event. A test of not only a team's skill, but their fortitude and drive, the BYOC has long been a part of the mystique of DreamHack. It is an endurance competition where only the strong and determined prevail. Brave the gauntlet and show the world that for some parties, an invite is not required.

On November 28, the Elmia will bear witness to teams like stayGreen, Lions, and MiTH.s2y. There, they will fight. They will fight to prove themselves. To bring pride to their region. To defend their title. To Write their own story.

What will you fight for?

Register for the DHW 13 BYOC:

  • Registration runs from 10:00 CET to 15:00 CET on November 28. Matches begin at 16:30 CET on November 28.
  • The $30,000 HoN Tournament runs from November 28-30 and will feature ten of the best teams from across the globe.
  • It will be covered live, on-site, by BreakyCPK, Beef, and DreamHackTV.

Dreamhack Summer Preview

Hey community, this is breakycpk and I will be the lead caster on Honcast for the upcoming DreamHack Summer 2013 Event.

Tune into Honcast.com beginning June 15 at 10 a.m. CEST / 4 a.m. EDT for the start of three days of hardcore competitive HoN matches, behind-the-scenes insight, trivia, and activities for viewers at home. You can find the entire streaming schedule at Honcast.com.

This will be the seventh time Heroes of Newerth has had an event at DreamHack and it has just gotten better every single time. This DreamHack Summer 2013 event there are plenty of storylines to follow from who is going to win their portion of the $30,000 prize pool, to will Stay Green International finally drop a game with their impressive win streak on the line, and much more.

We have teams representing all over the world including China, CIS, Southeast Asia, Thailand, North America, and of course Europe, but that is just one of many reasons to tune-in to this event. For the first time ever from DreamHack, every match will be casted by either Honcast or coLcast. Every team will also get the opportunity to play every other team at least once with the group stage format. The insane amount of matches we will get to see all three days during this event will be both very diverse as well as provide plenty of suspenseful and entertaining moments.

As if getting to watch all of these great matches wasn’t enough, there will also be plenty of interaction with the viewers, both in person at DreamHack as well as on the live stream in chat; look for giveaways, trivia, and what we expect to be some very fun segments!

DreamHack 2013 will truly be an experience to remember whether you are there in Jonkoping, Sweden or watching on the live stream from home, and we are very excited and looking forward on having a lot of fun. Be sure to join us!
