As the first live event of the '17-'18 season, HCS Daytona was originally conceived as an event with a $25,000 prize pool. However, 343 pulled from crowdfunded REQ sales increased the prize pool to $75,000. Responding to fan feedback, the decision was also made to increase the prize pool so all 16 teams earned money. HCS became the first even to pay beyond the top 8 teams since UGC St. Louis in 2015.

HCS Daytona is known for using the map layouts and game settings from 2017. Assualt Rifles have been completely removed from this event and there is now a limit on how effective the on-screen motion tracker is but there are also a lot more changes.
