Dreamhack Winter Thursday 24 November 2016 - Sunday 27 November 2016
Speedrunning is returning to Dreamhack Winter in 2016! This event will be treated as a full ESA main event, meaning amazing games, hosting and donations. This marathon will be a hybrid live/online event with the opportunity for live runners to take part in races with online opponents and with scheduled online-only blocks to allow the speedrun attendees to experience the rest of Dreamhack to it's fullest!

Submissions are being taken via the submission form. There is no hard deadline for submission but we request you respect a soft deadline of 24 October, a month before the event. Late submissions may be accepted, but we'll be in the process of making a schedule.

Runs/races can be submitted up to 2 live players.

As with previous Dreamhack Speedrun marathons, we can cover your entry and mass housing costs if you are prepared to take full part in our event. Do not book a general admission ticket!

Please sign up using the signup link if you are planning on attending

There is a discord group for chat about the event, find the ESA at Dreamhack group here.
