There’s nothing better than dominating a Fortnite lobby with two mates—that is, of course, unless the trio includes yourself and two celebrities, and the rest of the lobby is filled with other celebrities.

But while that sounds like a pipe dream, Alienware and Livewire are giving Fortnite players from Australia and New Zealand the chance to turn it into a reality at the Alienware Arena Series on Oct. 27.

Between now and Oct. 7, players from either country can register here to enter a draw for a chance to win a place on one of 20 teams in the event. The winners will be contacted on Oct. 10.

The teams will duke it out on No Build Mode. In addition to bragging rights, the winners will also receive prizes, including Alienware AW920H Gaming Headsets, and more.
