Although the Fortnite World Cup has not yet begun, Epic is ready for the grand finale. The developer announced today that the Fortnite World Cup Finals would be held in Queens, New York from July 25th to July 28th. The prize pool will be $30 million, and the winner will leave at $3 million.
What should we know about Fortnite World Cup Finals?
The event will take place at the Arthur Ashe Stadium at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. If fans are eager to go, they can pre-register with Ticketmaster's Verified Fan system, enter their information, and when the ticket starts to sell, they will be the first to be notified - yes, eSports is big enough that Epic is fighting ticket bots and scalpers.
Those who enter will receive both the Season 10 battle pass and the unknown number of V-Bucks, so you will have more motivation to do more than watch at home.
The top 100 solo players, as well as top 50 duo teams from around the world, will participate in the Fortnite World Cup Finals. Each of these players will be guaranteed at least $50,000, while the Fortnite World Cup Solo Champion will leave for $3 million.
It reflects Epic's determination to keep Fortnite in the public eye for as long as possible, but it also shows that eSports has evolved to the point where the best players can provide the conventional players with the kind of money they usually retain.
How to qualify for the World Cup?
The 2019 Fortnite World Cup will begin on April 13. To participate in the Fortnite World Cup, players must first test in Arena mode. They climbed the ranks and maintained 300 or more hype points. Those who have more than 300 hype points will compete on Saturday.
Each of the six regions participates in its server, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. during their respective time zones. Players will receive three hours of competition time. During this time, participants will be allowed up to 10 games. The player who scored the most after the end of the period continues to move forward. Then 3,000 participants continued to participate in the finals on Sunday. The score on Saturday will not last until Sunday.
The format for the finals is definitely the same. Players are provided precisely the same four p.m. - 7 p.m. time frame. Matches are capped at ten per player. The variations are money prizes along with the ability to qualify for the Globe Cup Final. Every weekend $1,000,000 are going to be distributed amongst Sunday's prime finishers. Furthermore, the top 19-21 players punch their ticket to the final: eight players from Europe (EU), six from North America - East (NAE), two from North America - West (NAW), zero to two from Asia, zero to two from Brazil, and zero to two from Oceania (OCE). In total, 99 solo players and 49 duo teams will qualify more than the ten weeks.
Also, Ticketholders will enter the Fortnite Fan Festival to turn the world of Fortnite into reality. The festival will have the opportunity to take a photo with Tomatohead and Brite Bomber, visit the Blackheart pirate ship, or taste the Slurp juice at Durrr Burger. Up to four tickets per person, tickets are not transferable.
