When Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 3 was released, we put all the details in this post. This competitive Fortnite season is bound to be the best in history. Even though we won’t have face-to-face events in 2020, Epic Games is doing a good job. With that, they announced that we will have a Solo Fortnite Champion Series, it will be the highlight for Fortnite Chapter 2 – Season 3.
In addition, DreamHack announced an open online tournament in monthly format. It will have0 US$ 250,000 in prizes, starting in July of that year and will last until January 2021. Solo and Trio Cash Cups will have professional players playing competitive games.
There is also something about the Daily Cups. Last season, Epic Games launched the Daily Duo Cups, which took place daily from March 25 to April 30. Players asked for more Daily Cups, and Fortnite complied. As of July 14, all regions and platforms will see the Daily Trios Cups on the Compete tab. However, these new Daily Cups will be very different from what we saw in Chapter 2 – Season 2.
Daily Trios Cup Format
We will have a format very similar to the Daily Duos Cups that in Season 2. The sessions will last three hours. The trios have a maximum of ten matches to play over that time. The set of rules listed on the Fortnite website provides more details on the format.
“Each session lasts approximately three (3) hours. Players can participate in a maximum of ten (10) matches during any session. Players will earn points based on the scoring system listed in Sections 2.4.2 and 2.4.3 (as applicable). Matches for a session will only count if the match starts before the session window is closed. ”
Daily Trios Cup Scoring System
Since the FNCS Duos of Chapter 2 of the second season, Epic Games has been testing different scoring systems. Many scoring systems over time reward typing and players have talked about it. For the first time in Fortnite’s competitive history, Epic Games is implementing an elimination limit for the Daily Trios Cups. Each elimination will earn one point, however, trios can earn additional points after two eliminations. Under this new scoring system, placement points will start at 20th place.
- Victory Royale: 14 points
- 2nd: 11 points
- 3rd: 9 points
- 4th: 8 points
- 5th: 7 points
- 6th: 6 points
- 7th – 8th: 5 points
- 9th – 10th: 4 points
- 11th – 13th: 3 points
- 14th – 17th: 2 points
- 18th – 25th: 1 point
The PC and the console will have separate tournaments and prizes. Last time, only the winners received a cash payment. For Chapter 2 – Daily cups of trios from the third season, the top three teams from each platform and region will earn money every day.
Event Awards – PC – All Regions
- Rank Prize
- 1st $1,200
- 2nd $900
- 3rd $600
Event Prizes – Xbox/PS4/Mobile/Switch – All Regions
- Rank Prize
- 1st $1,200
- 2nd $900
- 3rd $600
The prize amounts to US$ 1.47 million if we add the prizes per week and multiply it by the seven competitive regions. This is a nice change that Epic Games is providing for the competitive landscape. There is no shortage of tournaments in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 3.
