Prize Pools for FGC lineup at @DreamHack Austin 2018
When DreamHack Austin was first announced, prize pools were committed towards Smash Melee, Smash Wii-U and Brawlhalla. The event is set to double as part of the Brawlhalla Esports series leading up to the World Championship at DreamHack Atlanta this November, and DreamHack events regularly celebrate the staggering turnouts provided by the Smash community.
Earlier in April, however, prize pools have been expanded to cover the entire FGC lineup. The prize payout is now as follows:
- Street Fighter V: $2,500
- Dragonball FighterZ: $2,500
- Tekken 7: $2,500
- Pokken Tournament DX: $1,000
- Blazblue: Central Fiction: $500
- Guilty Gear XRD Revelator 2: $1,000
In addition to the above contributions, $10,000 prize pools have been distributed to each of the following brackets:
- Smash Wii-U Singles (+$1,000 for Doubles)
- Smash Melee Singles (+$1,000 for Doubles)
- Brawlhalla Singles
- Brawlhalla Doubles
Furthermore, DreamHack Austin has been classified as a Ranking Event for the Capcom Pro Tour 2018 season, which means that placing within the Top 8 in the Street Fighter V bracket will impact your standings on the CPT Leaderboards this year. Up to 150 points will be awarded to the winner, whereas the minimum amount is one point for 7th place.
Now that we have entered into the month of May, we are around one month away from DreamHack Austin running its course at the Austin Convention Center. The event is set to take place on the weekend of June 1-3.
