Add to that surprise announcement of the Practise Server's 'Elite Cup Featuring Fortnite' and we have one of the biggest weekends of competitive Fortnite ever.
The Fortnite Elite Cup will see 100 of the best Fortnite players from Europe and North America competing for the lions share of a $10,000 prize pool.
The one-day tournament will kick off on Saturday at 4:00 PM EST.
Fortnite Elite Cup Format
Unlike the recent Search & Destroy tournament the Elite Cup will be played in the traditional Battle Royale game mode. The tournament will be played online with players from NAW, NAE and EU. To mitigate the latency for all players the games will be played on the NAE server - meaning EU players could have pings as high as 200.
It is unknown whether the tournament is being played as Solo, Duos or Squads. We do know that there will be 6 matches played. The scoring format has not yet been released.
This information on this page will be updated as it comes out.
The confirmed players for this weekend's Fortnite Elite Cup will make it most stacked lobby we have seen in competitive Fortnite since the World Cup. There is a mix of PC and controller players with many of the controller players invited making it into our recent best controller players on Fortnite list.
From NAE we will have Turner "Tfue" Tenney, Dominick "UnknownArmyx1" Green, Williams "Zayt" Aubin and Rocco "Saf" Morales, as well as World Cup Solo winner - Kyle "Bugha" Giesdorf
NAW's Shane "Epikwhale" Cotton, Harrison "Psalm" Chang and Diego "Arkham" Lima will be making an appearance.
From Europe the UK's Kyle "Mongraal" Jackson and Benjy "benjyfishy" David Fish will be there, as well as Team Liquid's newest signing Dmitri "Mitr0" Van de Vrie.
There is a total of $10,000 up for grabs and including the prize money listed below, there is also $300 to be awarded for each match won.
