The team announced yesterday that their $969.00 goal was surpassed thanks to everyone who donated in the short time since they announced the goal. These funds will allow the team to travel to the event with all of the necessary equipment to run a professional stream for Pokkén. As seen in the tweet below, Doghouse Esports also promises an exciting announcement for Pokkén in return for the community's generosity.
Furthermore, because the original donation goal was passed, enough funds have been raised for Fumu to also attend the event! As all donations for Victory Road 2 were previously going towards getting Doghouse Esports to Dreamhack, future donations will now be going towards getting Burnside to the event as (potentially) both a commentator and a player. Victory Road 2 takes place this Saturday, May 12, so make sure to register! The event is free to enter, but donations are strongly encouraged as the event was created as part of the fundraising campaign.
More information regarding the Pokkén event at Dreamhack has also been announced. First, Pokkén is confirmed to have a $1000 prize pool and medals for the top placing competitors! The bracket is free to enter for anyone with a Dreamhack Austin pass. Next, now that Doghouse Esports is locked in for the event, they are accepting applications for Pokkén commentary at the event. If you are interested in being one of the voices behind this special event, you can apply here. Sign-ups will be open until 11:59PM on May 23.
You will be able to enjoy the Doghouse Esports Pokkén broadcast when Dreamhack Austin begins on June 1.
