DreamHack & EssentialsTF are announcing two new events to take place in the first half of 2021. Much like Essentials’ last tournament, these will continue to be a part of DreamHack’s Community Clash Events. Each event will have a focus on a different region (NA and EU), and both will have individual prize pools of $2,400 USD. 

Each of the tournaments will be spread out over two weekends, and we’ll be releasing more information about the exact schedule of each tournament closer to the time. Both events will have their own Invite qualifiers, so we’ll be giving teams a chance to register their interest for those nearer the time as well. 

Future information about EssentialsTF and the event can be found on Clash.TF. This site will be kept up to date in the run up to and during the event, with both tournament and stream updates. You can also follow our Twitter to stay up to date for future announcements. If you have any questions or need more information regarding the event or EssentialsTF, please reach out via our email, or the EssentialsTF Discord.
