DreamHack Anaheim LAN TF2 Open - $5000 prize pool

Anaheim Convention Center
800 W Katella Avenue
Anaheim, CA
USA

Start: Friday 11th February 2022
End: Sunday 13th February 2022

Tickets:
https://dreamhack.com/anaheim/
If you wish to compete in the tournament, you will need to order a BYOC Ticket which will provide access to the BYOC area. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A VALID BYOC TICKET YOU WILL BE UNABLE TO COMPETE. If you are planning to attend as a spectator and/or only wish to attend the expo, there are the festival and day tickets available.

DreamHack are offering discount codes for 10% off tickets for TF2 attendees, for both general admission and BYOC.

BYOC 10% Off - DHANA22TF2BYOC
General Admission 10% Off - DHANA22TF2GA

What is the closest airport to the venue?
For international travel, the closest airport will be Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) with a 45-120 minute journey via public transport or car to the venue.

For domestic travel, in addition to LAX there are the options of Long Beach Airport (LGB) or John Wayne Airport (SNA), each around a 25 minute car journey to the venue.

What accommodation is available around the area?
There are a range of hotels within minutes of the venue, from which DreamHack is offering a package deal which can save you up to 20% on hotel costs, including trip insurance, concierge services, early ticket pickup and discounts on merchandise and local food & entertainment. In addition, given the location there are a range of private lodgings available if that is preferred.

Can I sit with my team?
Yes! Once you have booked your tickets you will be eventually offered the chance to pick your seats in the venue. The seat map will be available from December 8th. However, we have an area in the BYOC that is specifically for TF2 players so we can have everyone sitting near one another. More details on this and how to get access will come soon.

Rentals
As of right now, rentals are not available. However we are working with DreamHack to secure some PCs for ad-hoc rentals for anyone with a BYOC ticket. Current estimates of costs will be around an additional $200 on top of your ticket, and I must state this is yet to be confirmed. Once we have an idea of the rental situation we will inform you as soon as possible.

Tournament Details
Registration for the tournament will be available soon, with full details for the rules, schedule and maps to follow shortly after. The prize pool is currently confirmed for $5,000 although this can expand based on player interest.

Any updates will be posted here and on our Twitter. We aim to answer any questions as quickly as possible. cu@

Question: whilst it always a good thing about more TF2 LANs is it really a good idea having a LAN 1/2 weeks before Insomnia that has basically been confirmed for next year? More specifically this would most likely stop having the top EU/NA team from attending the other LAN to ensure the highest level of competition.

Yeah, my bad on that one. Currently there are no official dates for Insomnia.

+1, BYOCs start at $118 (the discount code is most likely just eliminating tax) so unless the rental situation improves a lot of people aren't coming to play

RentalsAs of right now, rentals are not available. However we are working with DreamHack to secure some PCs for ad-hoc rentals for anyone with a BYOC ticket. Current estimates of costs will be around an additional $200 on top of your ticket, and I must state this is yet to be confirmed.

I volunteered as a crew member for DreamHack Anaheim in 2020 (general crew member not any game specific) and it was great. I will say volunteering for the event will get you a BYOC pass and spot for free since you have access to all areas as a volunteer if you are still on the fence about paying that fee. They feed you and it's an overall great experience. If you are competing in a game or a tournament they are really flexible with how they schedule you for shifts (at least the position I was in). Just throwing this out here in case anyone is tight on money. That being said, cu@ and look forward to meet some of you.
