With eyes on the new tournament from DreamHack known as the “Cash Cup Extra”, many players want to know the inner details on how they can participate and qualify for the extra cash prizes DreamHack is giving out. The first Cash Cup Extra will begin on April 15, and will consist of the top 132 teams that played in the Epic Games official Cash Cup on April 12th, 3 days earlier. These 132 teams that played on April 12th, will automatically qualify for the Cash Cup Extra on April 15, and will battle it out over the course of 10 games in a 3 hour window. The new scoring system focuses heavily on placement, with a Victory Royale giving 55 points to your trio, while eliminations are worth only a total of 6 points. Prizing also outranks the official Epic Games cash cups, with the top trio bringing home $2100 USD, breaking $700 USD for each player, which is $100 more then the official cash cup. These “Cash Cup Extra” events will be part of the April 12th, April 19th and May 10th Cash Cups, meaning that you will have multiple opportunities to participate, hopefully DreamHack continues with this awesome new event to provide some extra competition and rewards to competitive players.
