Dreamhack Winter 2014

Client

DreamHack started in November 1994 when Kenny “K2-ICE” Eklund and Martin “DH_admin” Öjes rented the local school cafeteria in the small city Malung and invited their computer entusiast friends to join them for a week end of coding and hacking. Today DreamHack is the worlds largest digital festival, the indisputable largest LAN party in the world with over 26,000 visitors, 22,483 unique devices in the network and close to 10 000 visitors who enjoy DreamHack with their own computer. DreamHack is also a world class esports event, DreamExpo, cosplay and a celebration on all things Internet happening several times each year all around the world.

Challenge

Kaosindustries was tasked with producing a BYOC (Bring Your Own Computer) tournament for League of Legends. A unique factor in this production was the fact that the tournament was held in the Dreamarena; a cinema that is part of the venue where Dreamhack is held. The challenge that this gave was the fact that for a large portion of the times that the tournament was off the cinema was also used as a place of entertainment for Dreamhack visitors, which of course hampers the ease of setup.

Result

The production was smooth to the extent that the challenge of having the cinema being used to show movies and series during off times actually turned into a benefit as the crew was capable of enjoying this source of entertainment in its fullest.
