Epic Games Officially Reveals Fortnite’s In-Game Tournaments

Fortnite’s Upcoming Gifting System Has Been Leaked By Ethan Chrisp

This in-game tournament system was leaked this weekend. It will be followed by a duo tournament, and then a squad competition. In the future, earning a pin may advance you to the next round of a tournament or qualify you to win prizes.

Another new feature added - which is flawless for those with a competitive edge - is the new Tournament events added into the game! Players will be awarded points based on how long they survive, and how many players they eliminate during each battle royale. There will be a target score for players to work toward, and anyone who successfully reaches that mark will earn a shiny pin.

Tournaments can be found inside of the new "Events" tab available in game.

Epic Games will not be separating payers across different platforms, meaning players armed with controllers will be pitted against players with keyboards and mice. By playing well, competitors will be matched with others close to their ability level.

Eurovision 2019 entry to be decided by public in open contest
But a dramatic new strategy will be deployed for Australia's participation in the 2019 Eurovision song contest. Consequently, the semi-finals show will take place on may 14 and 16, and the finale will be may 18.

Another week, another update to Fortnite. Addressing the perceived skill gap between controller, mouse and touch screen players, Epic cited pro players like NickMercs, Ayden, KamoLRF, and AmarCoD as proof "that controller players can be successful while competing against some of the best PC players in the world".

Epic says you can smash opposing players into the air by smashing into them, and that you can also boost off ramps or cliffs "to catch sick air", should that be your cup of tea. This will be the first time Fortnite players get in-game tournaments for multiple playlists. Epic invited 500 "Fortnite" players to compete in the event, dividing them into five different teams for the six-week skirmish season.

Players will battle against opponents who have a similar amount of points in the standings for that specific event. The first will be an open duos competition with a prize pool of more than $1.1 million split between the top 50 teams; the winning team will receive $400,000.
