The Fortnite team has announced rules and details for the upcoming World Cup. The First week of qualifications will begin April 13 with Solo competition, while the second week will feature Duos competition. Players can only pair with one Duo partner during each weekend, however, they can switch partners from week to week. The same format, week of Solo, followed by a week of Duo, will rotate during all ten weeks of competition.
In v8.20 update, the game will roll out a new Arena mode, for players who want to test themselves in a competitive environment. All players will start their competitive journey in Open League – Division One, from there, you can climb all the way up to Division Seven – Champion League, which leads to the Online Open tournaments. You climb the ladder by winning Hype points, based on how many eliminations you had and in which place you have ended the match. From Division 4 and onward, players will, for every match, have to pay Bus Fare with Hype points, which means that you can lose points by not doing well enough to make your ride worthwhile.
How to win hype points in duo mode:
Every Saturday, players who have unlocked Online Open will have a time window of three hours (depending on the region), in which they can play up to ten matches. When the time window has passed, 3000 top placed players from every region will earn their spot in Online Open Finals, which are played the next day. A detailed schedule for every region can be found here.
3) ONLINE OPEN FINALS
Points from semi-finals are reset, which means that every player starts the finals with a clean slate. The process of play is the same as in the semi-finals, only this time, after three-hour window expires, winning players will be verified and notified of the prizes they have won, from a sizeable prize pool of $1,000,000. The highest ranked players from each week of competition will be invited to the Fortnite World Cup Finals, held 26-28 June in New York City.
