DreamHack Open featuring Fortnite returned for November, bringing their first Duos tournament to close-out the year. The DreamHack format had, traditionally, been Solos up until this point, with a deviation now that Fortnite supports Arena Duos and Duos tournaments.
The European region was the first to complete its stage of the tournament, with NA-East competing this past weekend.. Ahead, we’ll give you the results for EU and NA-East, with an update when the final region finishes their tournament.
DreamHack Open European results
The European region was the first to compete for their share of the $250,000 monthly prize pool with Vandeal and Noahreyli taking home first place. The duo dominated the competition without winning a single game – finishing almost 50 points above TT9 KURA 74 and Grizi BadSnipR in second.
The fan-favorite duo of MrSavage and Benjyfishy barely landed in third place with 303 points. There was a stark drop-off in points after that, with Setty and Teep scoring 262 points with two wins and an average of 3 kills per game.
Here’s a look at the top ten in the European region of the DreamHack November Duos tournament:
|1st||OVA Noahreyli & Wave Vadeal||352||$24,000|
|2nd||Grizi BadSnipR & TT9 KURA 74||304||$14,000|
|3rd||100T MrSavage & NRG benjyfishy||303||$11,500|
|4th||GXR teeq & Spectrum Setty||262||$9,600|
|5th||GXR Milan & chapix 74||249||$7,850|

DreamHack Open NA-East results
Team XSET took home the NA-East region as established pros Knight and Shark walked away with first place and $15,000 – not bad for a few days of Fortnite. Acorn and Jaq finished ten points behind in second with 329 points.
Bugha is making his case for being one of the most consistent finishers in all of Fortnite. We tend to see him at or near the top of the heap in every tournament in which he participates. DreamHack November was no different, as he and Avery finished in third – 14 points above Furious and Calc in fourth.
The fan-favorite duo of Clix and Bizzle had a disappointing week with a 25th-place finish. They’ll both look to pick it up in the next DreamHack of FNCS event. Here’s a look at how the top-ten looked when the event had ended:
|1st||XSET Knight, XSET Shark||338||$15,000|
|2nd||OP Acоrn, jаhq||329||$9,000|
|3rd||bughа, C9 Avery||285||$7,250|
|4th||Furiouѕ., BBG YUNGCALC||271||$5,850|
|5th||V0IL, OA Rocaine||266||$4,900|
|6th||SEN Turkeyspect, Xoonies||264||$3,700|
|7th||Outc4st fr4t, Vanish Bank||257||$2,900|
|9th||vnsh glace, Trаshу||244||$2,250|

This week will feature the NA-West region, and we should see some of the biggest duos battling it out for the same prize pool that you can see, above. We’ll be back with coverage of North America next Sunday.
Until then, players can scratch their competitive itch by watching the DreamHack qualifiers or competing in this week’s presumed Marvel Knockout Super Series – which has yet to be officially announced. Have fun!
How to compete in the $1M Fortnite Marvel Super Cup
Fortnite and Marvel are ending the competitive season with the $1m Fortnite Super Cup.
The Marvel takeover of Fortnite Season 4 has extended to competitive play through the Marvel knockout Super Series tournaments that have been taking place over the course of the past few months. Epic have been offering players free superhero skins by placing highly in the Daredevil, Ghost Rider, Black Widow, and upcoming Venom Cups.
As announced at the begging of all of this, free skins are not the end-game for Fortnite (no pun intended). All of the action will culminate in an epic $1,000,000 Duos tournament to end the season.
The Super Cup will be the first Marvel Cup to offer a cash prize to winners in each region. It will take place on November 21 and will give players a chance to implement what they’ve learned from the previous Cups and put it into action.
Format and Prizes
The Super Cup will be in the Duos playlist but there will be a few tweaks to the gameplay. First, this won’t be a Marvel Knockout game mode like the last few cups have been. Epic have also announced that eliminate players will now drop 20 materials to a cap of 200 – lower than the traditional 500 competitive cap. As you can probably expect, there will also be an uptick in superpowers available in this cup.
There was talk of previous Marvel Knockout performances playing a role in player eligibility, but the tournament seems to be open to everyone who wants to compete. Here’s a look at the scoring system for each match:
Victory Royale: 55 Points
2nd: 49 Points
3rd: 46 Points
4th: 43 Points
5th: 40 Points
6th: 37 Points
7th: 35 Points
8th: 33 Points
9th: 31 Points
10th: 29 Points
11th: 27 Points
12th: 25 Points
13th: 23 Points
14th: 21 Points
15th: 19 Points
16th: 17 Points
17th: 15 Points
18th: 13 Points
19th: 11 Points
20th: 9 Points
21st: 7 Points
22nd: 5 Points
23rd: 4 Points
24th: 3 Points
25th: 2 Points
26th-45th: 1 Point
Each Elimination: 5 Points
As usual, the distribution of prizes will depend on your region, with the larger regions receiving a bigger portion of the $1,000,000. Here’s how all of the prizes will be distributed in each region.
Event Prizes – Europe
Event Prizes – NA East
Event Prizes – NA West
Event Prizes – Brazil
Event Prizes – Asia
Event Prizes – OCE
Event Prizes – Middle East
If you’d rather spectate the event, you can always watch the official Fortnite Twitch or YouTube streams. The broadcast will begin at 1pm EST on November 21 with the European region. NA-East will kick off at 5pm. It looks like these are the only two regions that will be covered on the official broadcast.
Do you think you have what it takes to win the Super Cup? Give it a shot by competing in the Venom Cup this week and Super Cup next week. Good luck!

Everything you need to know about the $10,000 Fortnite Nick Eh 30 Cup
The $10,000 Nick Eh 30 Cup is coming to Fortnite soon. Here’s everything you need to know.
Nick Eh 30 is part of the original crop of Fortnite streamers to hit the scene, and one of the only members of that group who still regularly plays the game. The always-positive Fortnite creator is now hosting a Solo tournament for his fans and followers, offering a prize pool of $10,000.
This will be Nick’s first time hosting a Fortnite tournament, although he’s no stranger to competition. Nick might be a content creator, first and foremost, but he competed in all of the Ninja Battles tournaments and even tried his hand at the FNCS in recent seasons.
Nick announced his upcoming tournament on Twitter on November 9. It will take place on November 22, giving players a chance to win some money before the Thanksgiving holiday.
According to a follow-up tweet, the games will only be played on NA-East, although it’s not region-locked and anyone can compete.
The tournament only has two rounds: Open Qualifiers and Finals. Since it’s his own tournament, Nick will automatically make it into the final round. He’ll join the top 99 players from Open Qualifiers, fighting for their share of the $10,000 prize pool.
The tournament will be placement-heavy, with placement points going up by 1 for each 10 placements until the top 75. After that, each five placements receive a point until they make it to the top 30, where each placement will be a point until the top two. The top two earn two points and the winner gets five. Each elimination is also worth one point.
We haven’t received official word of the prizing, yet, but we have to assume that it will be the same as the upcoming 1% cup. We’ll update this post if there are any changes.
You can register for the tournament here. Make sure that your account is older than 30 days and you have two-factor authentication enabled. Good luck to all of the competitors.
