Fortnite Flakes Power Cup: Format and Scoring
The tournament will be completed in the stages previously mentioned. Each round of the Qualifiers will last approximately 3 hours and teams may participate in a maximum of ten matches.
At the conclusion of Round 2 of the applicable Qualifier, the top point-earning teams as listed on the Leaderboard will advance to Stage 2 and will be seeded into groups (i.e. a “Heat”). During this stage, teams will play up to six matches.
