Epic Announces a Bevy of Tournaments Leading to a World Cup Event

Epic Announces a Bevy of Tournaments Leading to a World Cup Event - Fortnite - MMORPG.com

Epic hosted a fete last night during E3 2018 and as part of the celebration of Fortnite's success, developers revealed a series of online tournaments, community-run competitions and official competitive events as well as the 2019 Fortnite World Cup. The company will be using $100M to invest in and sponsor tournaments for the balance of 2018 and into 2019. 

For those interested in World Cup play, Epic will sponsor qualification events for both solo and duo players leading up to the 2019 Fortnite World Cup. The goal is to provide players of all skill levels a chance to participate in aspects of the qualifying events. Interestingly, Epic has nixed the idea of selling spots to existing professional esports teams or other third parties. This allows every player a chance to get in on the esports action.

This is for you, the players. Qualifications for the Fortnite World Cup will be based on merit. Epic will not be selling teams or franchises, and won’t allow third-party leagues to do so either.

The schedule for the World Cup qualifiers is expected to be published later in 2018.
