The Fortnite World Cup begins this weekend in New York City and Turner “Tfue” Tenney is probably the most notable qualifier battling it out for a $3 million first place prize in NYC. We compiled a complete list of World Cup qualifiers — 100 solo and 50 duos (teams).
Epic Games is throwing one heck of a bash at the Billie Jean King Tennis Center in Queens. The Fortnite World Cup will be hosted at Arthur Ashe stadium (home to the US Open).
The Fortnite World Cup was open to everyone in the universe 13-years and older. After ten weeks of qualifying rounds, the World Cup is set. Everyone who qualified for the World Cup won at least $50,000.
What is everyone playing for? Glory, fame, respect and cash. First place in solo pays out $3 million. That lucky player will be known as the top Fortnite player in the world. There’s a team category as well with 50 duos slugging it out to win $3 million for each team member. In total, over $30 million in prizes are up for grabs in NYC.
The World Cup kicks off on Friday with Day 1 action featuring a pro-am and battle of creatives. Poker pro and “Master Chef” finalist David Williams is among the notable “celebrities” participating in the pro-am. Plenty of pro athletes play Fortnite so who knows who else might show up to soak up the festivities. KC Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes and members of the NY Knicks are all avid Fortnite players. Don’t forget about the Red Sox who actually banned Fortnite from the locker room until the busted out of a losing streak.
The Fortnite World Cup featured ten weeks of qualifiers with Duos and Solos switching off alternative weeks. The Solos qualified on odd weeks.
As everyone knows, Tyler “Ninja” Blevins failed to qualify for the World Cup. Popular streamer and esports pro Tfue secured his spot in Week 3.
The solo finals begin on Sunday at 1pm ET. Players will jump off the untz bus six times and battle in six games. The supreme champion will be determined by the player with the most points at the end of six matches. A victory is worth 10 points and only the top 15 finishers earn points. Knockouts are essential and worth a single point.
