WHAT IS DREAMHACK ATLANTA?
DreamHack is a gaming event unlike any other! DreamHack events are all about the massive BYOC (Bring Your Own Computer) LAN party, paired with a plethora of competitive tournaments and international esports competitions happening. Visitors are able to check out the latest gaming and tech gear at the DreamExpo, and take part in all sorts of different activities! Activities include tournaments, cosplay, non-gaming events like scavenger hunts, tabletop games and more!
I WANT TO COMPETE, WHAT KIND OF TICKET SHOULD I GET?
All ticket holders to the DreamHack Atlanta event are eligible to participate in tournaments. (BYOC passes will also allow you to play in any BYOC tournaments. A BYOC seat and your own hardware are required for BYOC tournaments). Do not miss your chance to pre-register to secure your spot in the tournaments you want to participate in.
WHAT DOES DREAMHACK PROVIDE FOR THE LAN PARTY? WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?
For every BYOC ticket you purchase you will be provided with one table seat and a simple chair paired with it. You will be provided one electrical socket and one internet port. You will need to provide an internet cable (we recommend a minimum of 30ft to be safe) and a power strip to be able to plug in both computer tower and monitor. If you forget these, they will be purchasable at the DreamHack Store.
IS IT SAFE TO BRING MY PC? DO I NEED TO WORRY ABOUT THEFT?
It is absolutely safe to bring your PC to our event. We will have our Crew security staff on-site during the whole event. If you are concerned about security you may always bring a computer lock to secure your tower or laptop and peripherals to the table. We do not recommend leaving valuables like cell phones & wallets at your LAN seat as those are much easier to walk away with. DreamHack is not responsible for any lost possessions.
