How Fortnite Tournaments Will Work In Game

"Fortnite: Battle Royale" will add a new tournament mode to the in-game events menu, giving players across all platforms a chance to play against each other in a competitive format. By playing well, competitors will be matched with others close to their ability level. These tournaments will pair players across Fortnite and task them with earning points.

"Events have scheduled tournament sessions for you to play in". There's also a score target for each tournament, and reaching it will award players with a pin. Fortnite players from all platforms will compete against one another, regardless of the input method used.

The legal issue stems from the fact that injecting any code into Fortnite that modifies the game itself violates Epic's copyrights, a violation that is only further aggravated by the fact that both defendants regularly shared video of the cheats in action. This means controller players will be going against mouse and keyboard and so on. The reason for Epic's decision to allow everyone to play together is that the developer saw top controller players in public tournaments such as Fall Skirmish perform just as well as mouse and keyboard players, and were even able to compete with them.

This well-known weather pattern occurs 3 to 6 times a year in the region and almost always triggers flash flooding. The rain that triggered the flooding was partially associated with the remnants of Hurricane Leslie.

Epic says that grouping everyone into a single competition group will increase visibility for the best players and help increase prize pools. The current state of the highly anticipated feature could also be changed by Epic Games before its release, so players may possibly be seeing a very different version of the Fortnite gifting system that is seen in the leaked footage above. The Alpha Tournament and Salty Springs Cup are geared towards solo play, while the Beta Tournament and Tomato Temple Cup are focused on duo play.

Fortnite players will see a new update kicking into place today (Tuesday 16 October), and with the 6.10 update, you will see that Tournaments have been added to Fortnite's Battle Royale mode. The second competition will be an invitational event for 50 Fortnite content creators and 50 random TwitchCon attendees with another $350,000 in prize money.

The next Fortnite update is live now, so just whack on the short download to start ramming through enemy bases with the Quadcrasher.
