This season is jam-packed with events leading up to the Fortnite Championship Series main event. We’ve got the rundown for everything you need to know...
Season 4 of Fortnite introduced a new and fresh spin on Mythic Weapons with the help of Marvel Cinematic Universe. The unprecedented seasonal integration of such a pop culture hit proves that Fortnite isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
You want to know what else isn’t going anywhere? Competition. And if you guys are reading this, it probably means that you’re looking to play in these upcoming events. Getting ahead of the curve and competing in all weekly events the perfect tool to elevate your game.
With that in mind, Epic just released a lot of useful information regarding competitive events this season. So let’s go over everything you need to know…
Dreamhack is a monthly tournament circuit that features solo competition in NA-West, NA-East and Europe. Players compete for their stake at a cumulative $250,000 Epic sponsored prize pool.
The tournament will take place in three stages: open, semis, and finals. 1500 advance to the semi-finals, while only 100 make it to the finals.
Keep in mind the fact that this event is very consistent and placement heavy. Eliminations might not matter if you can’t make it to at least five or six endgames out of 10 games.
Fortnite Championship Series
The Fortnite Championship Series is a seasonal event with a rotating event style. This season, grab two friends to compete in the Trios iteration of FNCS.
Reserve the entire weekend ending October 11th, 18th, and 25th for all three FNCS qualifiers. Similar to Dreamhack, each qualifier weekend will take place in three stages: open, semis, and finals. Top trios will advance to the final weekend for an incredible chance to win some big money.
Two weekly Cash Cups are being hosted for the next three weeks. Mondays are reserved for solo events while Tuesday is for trios.
Head on over to the “Compete” tab in game to view the respective time and prize distributions.
Misc. events: Wild Wednesdays & Hype Nites
If the aforementioned events aren’t enough to satiate your cravings, Fortnite has some more “fun” tournaments for all players to participate in:
– Wednesday: Wild Wednesdays
– Sunday: Hype Nites
Sundays will host the traditional Hype Nite events to help players over the hump into the higher divisions. The next three Wednesdays will hold an event with random formats and a prize pool for the top 10 finishers.
Thanks to @TheFNMaster on Twitter, we have a nicely color-coordinated calendar that displays all of Season 4’s events. (Keep in mind that this doesn’t include the last second changes to Cash Cup events.)
Now you know what’s to come this season, the only thing between you and the crown is putting in that work.
